Gembox Keyboard Ipad Case

What do I desire in a keyboard Ipad Case?

I would look for a quality stylish case that looks attractive in professional settings and protect my Ipad from potential disasters.

I would need a reasonably priced case.

I would want a keyboard that would function as well as my full sized desktop keyboard and would easily and connect and stay connected to my Ipad with function keys that would enhance my Ipad experience.

Gembox Keyboard Case -- The Case

Let's see how the Gembox matches up to my criteria.

First, the Gembox is a quality case built of PU leather. PU leather allows the case to be lower costing than a similar leather case and is water repellent and almost as durable as 100% leather. The ipad case has the look and feel of real leather without a strong glue smell common to many puleater cases.

The case holds the Ipad in a leather frame in which the Ipad slides into from the top (in landscape mode) and then a leather flap folds behind the Ipad to secure it in place. The Ipad is kept firmly in place by the flap.

This case is similarly priced to other Ipad cases, however, this case is for the Ipad 1. Realize this before you order one for your Ipad 2.

The Keyboard

This keyboard ipad case connects quickly and easily to the ipad through the bluetooth connection on the Ipad. The keyboard itself is a disappointment.

To save space this keyboard moved some keys. If you type between your desktop or laptop keyboard and the Gembox keyboard, you will soon be frustrated by having to learn anew each time as you touch type on the keyboards.

The Gembox keyboard has several quality issues too. Most users commented on the on/off switch being difficult to reach and also breaking in a short few weeks.

Furthemore, over time the bluetooth connection is disconnected, even in mid-typing session. This would be very frustrating.

Also the charging system went out on several users. I do not know if the battery in the keyboard was defective or if the charging units were, but either way, t he keyboard could no longer be used. I am surprised at the low level of quality considering the price of this keyboard Ipad case.

My Personal Opinion

I heard enough negatives regarding this keyboard ipad case that I would stay clear of the Gembox case.

Instead I would consider either the Acase keyboard case for the Ipad 1 or the Menotek keyboard Ipad 2 case. Both are reasonably priced and good quality cases and keyboards.
