A very good Bluetooth keyboard and case,
I was sent this keyboard and case by the manufacturers. I think it is very good, and excellent value.
The case itself is made of "UP leather" which I had to look up. It is a type of leather, but heavily treated and coated with polyurethane. It still has a pretty nice feel, though, and to me feels more natural than synthetic. It holds a 7.9" tablet (like an iPad mini) steadily, but doesn't grip it hard enough to prevent it sliding out under gravity. This is a good thing because you can take the tablet in and out easily, but do be warned (mine nearly came a cropper!). The whole thing seems well made and has a robust feel about it. It folds neatly into a stand and (once the joints had loosened a little) stays stable and then folds back into a protective case with good magnetic catches which again keep it very stable
The keyboard is also very good. It is held in place by four strong magnets and is detachable from the case if you need to move it. Connection is straightforward - the keyboard was instantly detected and after typing in a number which appeared on the screen the connection remained very steady. It does seem to go into some kind of standby mode if it's not used for several minutes, but a quick turn off and on again connects it again straight away. As a keyboard I find it nice to use with good, decent-sized keys for such a compact keyboard. It has a limited range of shortcuts; the manual lists a great many, but most aren't there. This is the only slight gripe I have about this product - but if they hadn't mentioned them I wouldn't really have expected them, so I haven't deducted a star.
I think this is excellent value at this price. I think it looks very smart and it is well made and functional and I can recommend this warmly.
