Keyboard Folio w/ Mechanical Keys for iPad® 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 - Black with Black Keys
(the New iPad)
|iPad Air™||iPad Air 2|
Increase your productivity with your Apple iPad 2, New iPad (aka iPad 3), or iPad With Retina Display (aka iPad 4) with this Keyboard Folio from Monoprice!
While the virtual keyboard on tablets is good enough for entering a small amount of text or data, it just cannot match the typing speed and sheer quantity of work you can get done with a physical keyboard. This folio case turns your iPad into a laptop computer workstation.
The folio features a stand function, which holds your iPad in a position similar to that of a laptop computer screen. The built-in Bluetooth® keyboard uses the industry leading Broadcom 20730 Bluetooth chipset. When paired with the iPad it allows you to type and enter data with greater ease and speed!
The keyboard uses standard "dome" contacts, but with scissor-type mechanical keys. The keys require an actuation force of about 60 grams, plus or minus 10 grams, and have an expected life cycle of more than 10 million keypresses.
The keyboard has its own internal, rechargeable battery, so it won't reduce the battery life of your iPad. The lithium-ion battery will provide up to 120 hours of continuous operation and up to 300 days of standby time. The battery has a charge cycle lifetime of 300 charges and takes about 3-4 hours for a full charge.
iPad not included!

PROS: Excellent value for high quality keyboard for the Ipad
CONS: No cons here!
PROS: I have had the keyboard for a few weeks and have not had to recharge since the initial one. The Bluetooth syncing was flawless. Every start up is flawless. The functioning of the keyboard is first rate.
CONS: The design of the mounting for viewing the screen is poorly conceived. Two very small teeth about 1/2" in from the sides of the bottom of the screen are supposed to engage into to equally small slots in the case. There are two viewing angles and neither holds the screen securely. The slightest jolt sends the screen flying. Where the small teeth impact on the keyboard after slipping, the keys that are struck are loosened. The right shift key is loose and the capslock key has come off completely. Both of these keys are along the path of the mounting teeth when the mounting position slips. The full weight of the iPad bears down on individual keys with each very frequent slip. I read before my purchase about keys falling off. Now I know why. The next version of this keyboard needs to address this serious design flaw in the mounting/viewing of the screen.
PROS: Well designed with the magnet shut off and slim profile. I liked using this folio and keyboard.
CONS: Keys began falling off within a couple of weeks of using it. I contacted Monoprice and they agreed to replace item. The only problem was it cost me $15 to return this product in packaging and shipping costs.
PROS: It works the way its supposed to, battery seems to last awhile.
CONS: When the case is close with the iPad in it, its kinda thick, but thats just the nature of the beast with a product like this..My only real complaint about the product is that there is 2 spots designed for the iPad to be propped up with providing only 2 viewing angles, steep and really steep. I wish there was another viewing angle that was not so steep..
PROS: Mechanical Keys, Weight, Simple Design
CONS: No Auto-Lock
PROS: Quality looked good
CONS: Returned b/c male portion of the tabs that hold Ipad upright while typing did not align well with the female portion of the tabs.
PROS: Offers nice option to using the touch screen
Offers nice protection to transporting the ipad. I like that the keyboard came be removed with ease.
CONS: The spacing of the keys is tough to get used to, I find myself pecking away at the letters with a few fingers rather typing with two hands.
PROS: Great keyboard size and feel for typing. Enhances the ability to work on the iPad greatly. Durable case.
CONS: Within 8 months, the caps lock key broke off and is slowing happening to the shift key and left side of keyboard. It was a gift for my fiance so it is a bummer that this now looks cheap and nonfunctional.
