decent keyboard, risky design however..
on 4 March 2013
Basically this is a great cheap keyboard(reasonable key action decent size keys etc) but the rest of the design(the case itself) is flawed and puts your tablet at more risk of being dropped. The folder holds your tablet with 3 gripping clips which seem great and well made however, my brother used this folder while walking with the tablet and the tablet slid out unobstructed from the side of the folder and flew out onto the floor and broke!!
If you use this indoors as a sort of home housing it is great value and does the job even if its a little awkward using the usb adapter lead, outside I'd say its an a accident waiting to happen. If it just had a clip on the sides it would have been fine.
I have now bought a Bluetooth keyboard also from Amazon (look up aluminium nexus 7 keyboard), it clips together with the nexus, looks like it was made by Asus themselves it fits so good, and holds the screen upright really well. At only £14 I'd have to say this is a much better if slightly more expensive alternative.
Key action and sizing is really good and makes typing a doddle and it can be charged up with your nexus 7 charger or any USB port.
My recommendation is get the Bluetooth keyboard/housing. Much better around.
Only buy this cheaper keyboard if you're determined to keep things cheap, there's no other reason it would sway my choice.
