Do you really want to carry your big and heavy laptop everywhere you go?
4 December 2013
Summary: Using a quality Kensington keyboard improves the functionality and speed of the I-Pad's use. This keyboard makes communication so much easier. I now use my I-Pad frequently throughout the day, as compared to using it a couple of times each day. Now, I don't need to pack my bulky laptop everywhere with I go. I also like the extended operating time of the battery.
Summary: Had purchased this case for my wifes' Original IPad. It fits perfectly. tThe built in keyboard ie sturdy and has a nice feel to it. When closed the keyboard lays against the screen but that's not a problem as the surface is made of soft silicone. The charger plugs in nice and solid as opposed to the first case I purchased from Staples,that one when plugged in all you had to do was move the IPad across the table and the plug fell out.
Summary: This is a great product, I have an original Ipad and it works great. The experience is much more Laptop/Netbook like. Any kind of writing feels much more comfortable with a keyboard. I know we all love our Ipads, but constatnly pressing on flat glass to write leaves a lot to be desired. The case is very well built and overall construction is excellent. Keyboard adds several ouncers to weight, but for me, it's worth it.
Summary: I just received my Kensington PadFolio and so far I really like the look and feel. The only disappointment is that the keyboard is not set up like a "normal" keyboard. It is missing the right "shift" key, which dramatically slows down typing because the only shift is on your left hand. Anytime you have to capatalize a key that you type with your left hand you have to hold down the left shift with your left finger and type the letter.
Summary: There is nothing inherently "wrong" with this product. In fact, the case is nice, the set up was easy - and it accomplishes everything it promises. I have 3 gripes, however, about how it accomplishes all of this: 1. Between the case and the keyboard, this set up is now heavier and takes up more room than my MacBook Air. 2. While there is a great and sturdy set up for the screen to "stand" while you're typing, the angle and distance from the keyboard makes it awkward. 3.
Summary: I had read others reviews and got a mixed reviews so I decided to go ahead and buy. I am glad I did, my Kensington Bluetooth keyboard is wonderful. It holds my iPad firmly, the keyboard is water tight and I don't have to worry about the keys damaging the screen. There is a little slot in front of the keyboard to rest the iPad standing up (like you see in the picture), this is fine for when I am typing, but I found I can also move the bottom of the iPad forward onto the...
Summary: Great case! Looks good and is easy to use. My only complaint is that the stand is not adjustable, so the computer sits at only one level. It makes it challenging to type at meetings where I do not have a table and am using it on my lap. Overall, however, this was a great purchase and I am very satisfied.
Summary: This is a very good case for you iPad. The bluetooth keyboard works great ( keep it charged, the charge will last about two days) sometimes I leave it on. The stand is very good, great for the plane. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
Excerpt: The Kensington KeyFolio Keyboard Case is actually a great add-on for iPads. This case can protect my iPad against hits and scratches, but at the same time allow me to use it as a computer. The built-in keyboard allows me to type a whole lot faster. I am not limited to the on screen keyboard . I’ve always had the problem where the onscreen keyboard will always register the wrong key when I try to type. It takes me a long time and a lot of redos to actually get it right.
Summary: This works really well, mostly because of Apple's software in the iPad. I use it with the original iPad. It works just like I expected. The only reason I did not rate it with 5 stars is that is a little heavy. It doubles the weight of the iPad.
