What a waste and disappoinment!
January 27, 2019
It's a very sturdy and well thought out case with keyboard, but WHY is such a great looking keyboard NOT user-friendly? I was trying to replace my existing keyboard for my tablet because the case was looking crappy, and I LOVED that this one had a touchpad (so I could stop carrying my travel mouse)... Well... I was wrong. As much as I wanted to love this, it has caused me nothing but grief since I received it.
First, I tried to connect it via Bluetooth to my tablet. I thought it would be a simple task like my previous keyboard-turn it on, find the name on my tablet, click that link, and press the code that appears on the tablet on the keyboard to pair it... Nope! Not so simple. After several attempts to pair it, a complete overnight charge, and preparing to send it back; I looked at the inserts and saw that there was a special way to pair it to the tablet according to your operating system. Okay. I thought that was a bit much, but its forgivable.
Next, after I finally got it to work and start using it, the darn thing barely keeps a charge! The listing says 100 hour battery?! LIES!! The first time I had left it on, so I would make sure to turn it off after that happened (even though I never had to turn my other keyboard off and it would still keep its charge). Then, the touchpad is ridiculously sensitive! Everytime that I reposition my cursor, my page minimizes! How could the main thing that I adored about the keyboard, render it essentially useless?! UGHH!!
I purchased this case with the idea of upgrading my existing keyboard, only to wish I hadn't left my mouse at home in-lieu of the touchpad, and to realize just how much better my crappy-cased keyboard was! It was completely reliable, and the battery never ran down-even if I left it on! I am so glad that I didn't throw it away!
This case has been nothing but a waste of my time and money for such a crappy keyboard!
