Forum Question: What Is the Best iPad 2 Keyboard Case?

Looking for a sturdy protective case with built-in Bluetooth wireless keyboard, which can be easily used in landscape or portrait mode, with camera and recharging openings, and a sturdy supportive adjustable iPad2 tilt feature.
Not a lot to ask, but I’ve been unable to find one which is overwhelmingly agreed upon by users.
What do you think, Gary R and other readers?

    I don’t use one like that, so I don’t have any suggestions. Maybe someone else has a recommendation?

    I’ve used about 3 different cases. The issue with all of them? Very small keys. If you have small fingers, any keyboard case will probably work just fine. Another gripe of mine is that the right shift keys on most of them are too short. I use the right shift key on a regular keyboard, while the left one just sits there.

    I’m unofficially the worlds fastest touch typist, so I don’t really care for them. Sometimes they’re sort of convenient, but I just haven’t found one that I like.

    I use the Logitech one – fits all your criteria, long battery life, great position of the iPad screen, fast typing.

    I haven’t tried this or any other iPad keyboard, but the TouchFire is an interesting design that recently had a super-successful Kickstarter campaign. It’s a clear-ish overlay that lets you feel the on-screen keyboard. It may take a while to ship.

    (Seems like someone did this a few years back for the iPhone too.)

    Gary G replies:
    Looks like a versatile alternative to bulkier, heavier, power-requiring keyboards, with many well-worked out features. The $44 cost makes it affordable for all.

    The only concerns for me would be alignment during use (How strong are those magnets?) and durability (key flexibility, shape retention, temperature & sun effects come to mind).

    I’ll be in touch with them regarding this one.

    Thanks!

    I use Solid Line’s keyboard case. It has a full-sized right shift key and it’s got a nice grip. http://www.solidlineproducts.com. I hate the screen keyboard.
