*- does not stay standing in vertical position, and only stays horizontal in a certain position without keyboard holding it in place (I chose this item over others to have this feature) *- no groves on base for ipad to rest in (makes a big difference, also why I chose this type, thinking it would) - flimsy - smells funny - ipad does not feel secure in groves of the plastic case it snaps into - ipad may fall out of plastic case - Ipad falls backwards when I press on the screen in vertical position - keyboard must be moved half way down off the back of the case in order for vertical positioning to be functional - keyboard must touch the bottom of the ipad in order for the ipad to stay in place - not durable safety case for children to handle - hardly functional on your lap and does not have good balance - I don't like that they keys rub up against the screen of my ipad while closed in...
Long story short, I'm disappointed in this product. What it actually is is a folio type case, similar in material to the magnetic flap cover things apple sells for the iPad. The Bluetooth keyboard is NOT integrated into the case. It comes as a separate item. Without it you will not be able to use the case to stand your iPad up at all. This is disappointing to me. If the keyboard is separate, I'm not sure it can really be called a keyboard case, but maybe that's just me. I will not be using this case as it is not durable enough for something that needs a separate keyboard carried along with it. Since the iPad is going to be used by my 6th grader and going back and forth to school, I'm planning on buying a heavier duty case, a stand alone keyboard, and a padded pocket case for my daughter to put those in. To be fair, the keyboard seems durable.
I purchased this case for my teenage daughter. We purchased the light blue case. The color is as shown and is a nice bright color. The construction of the case is holding up nicely against frequent use. The magnet on the flap is just right...holds the case tightly closed, but isn't difficult to open. The only two criticisms I have with this case are concerning the strength of the case and the keyboard. The back of the keyboard is not magnetized and slides very easily. It would be difficult to use if not sitting at a desk or another flat surface. Also, the case is not strong enough to stand as shown.
