    looks alright. definitely dont get the keyboard from sears, its generic and $100 is a total ripoff price. branded tablet keyboard cases cost $100, while this is a no-name product.
    unfortunately there arent many branded a500 keyboard folios, so you are limited for choice

    I think the sears on and the amazon one are the exact same model from the same company, just a huge price difference. Strange

    I've looked at that one too and so far it seems like the best one although on amazon there's not a lot of reviews.

    I bought one of these (althought through eBay I believe it is the same device) to replace my nice leather folio.

    The new folio is just as nice and the keyboard is physically well designed and adjustable, however it is almost completely useless and I had to type this response on a laptop as I could not get the keyboard on the Acer to behave long enough to even login.

    The bluetooth attaches but disconnects after some random time and does not auto re-attach for ages (often up to 15 minutes).

    The silicone keyboard requires enormous force to depress the keys and often gives no response or double characters. It has a ugly feel reminiscent of a security key pad where you only ever type 4 digits. I would have to rate the keyboard as truly horrid!

    The magnetic clips to close the case are difficult to align and close properly - making the end of meetings embarassingly slow to depart from.

    All in all - don't bother if you are looking for a professionally built item. Kensington do a nice one for the iPad with a really nice real keyboard - don't know about the Acer....

    I am going back to my old folio so that I can at least use the screen keyboard.

    I am seriously looking at one of these for my A500, but I would like to know how you worked around the fact that all the ports and switches on the A500 are at the corners of the tablet. It seems like every one of them would be covered over by the corner mounts shown in all the pictures. I notice whatever tablet they used in the ad photo has its power switch on the face in the center of the frame.
