A1CS 8" Black Leatherette Case ,USB Keyboard Screen Protector for 8" android tablet PC
on 21 February 2012
At first glance this accessory looks good - certainly smarter than the standard case that came with the tablet. The fully function 6 row keyboard is useful for working on Office style documents etc. There is an issue with the navigation keys working the wrong way however this seems to affect any external keypad and the vendor tells me it is a problem with the tablet.
Beware that the catch at the top is a little on the weak side; if you pick up the case at an angle the tablet could easily fall out sideways, so I use a piece of grip mat behind the tablet to make sure that can't happen, or you could glue some non slip stuff on the catches.
I could see that the loose USB connector if not carefully stowed might damage the tablet screen when the case is folded. This isn't really a defect but something to be aware of.
My fingers are not the smallest and since the keys are very 'square' I find it easy to press two at once. The usual pyramid or dome shaped keys would have been nicer.
The stylus wasn't in the packaging (damaged in the post) but I don't think you need one with a capacitive screen anyway.
The Screen protector is a must and really stops smearing and scratches.
All in all, for the price it is a worthwhile purchase.
