I recently bought the New Trent Airbender keyboard case for my iPad through Amazon.com.
Before buying this case, I did something I rarely do. I watched demo videos on YouTube and read every review I could get my hands on. There were plenty of good reviews, and almost equally as many bad reviews. Looking at the bad reviews, I immediatly noticed that the things people were complaining about were such small things that I couldn’t understand why they were condemning this case so harshly. I don’t normally write reviews, so bear with me here.
At first glance, the case has a good sturdy look. I don’t know about you, but I have a problem putting my products in flimsy looking cases. I spent a decent amount of money to buy a good product, I’d rather spend a little more to protect it properly than go cheap on the case and lose my iPad.
Installation took about ten seconds, and no I’m not kidding. The iPad snaps right into place in the back cover, and the bluetooth activation went very quickly. While the keyboard is much smaller than I’m used to using, it is far larger than the on-screen iPad keyboard. The space key is a little slow on the uptake, but over all, I find it a stroke over par as far as keyboards go. The iPad function keys are great. Home button, dim, picture frame, volume, and lock controls are all placed right at the finger tips.
While this case doesn’t offer the same protection as my Otter Box Defender case, the protection is, I believe, more than adequate for every day usage. The keyboard is detachable and extremely maneuverable as far as angles for typing are concerned. The back place also detaches from the stand, allowing for tablet use independent of the keyboard without having to completely remove it from the case.
There are some things that could have been made better, such as the tension on the round hinge that holds the iPad in position, but overall, a great case at a great value. I highly recommend this keyboard case.
