Changes the way I work with my Ipad Air Dec 19, 2013
By D. Perkins
I am rating this 5 stars simply because so far everything promised has been realized. The bluetooth works smoothly although it takes some time to get used to it (I am writing this with the keyboard now), the keys are certainly adequate although if someone has very large hands they could be somewhat small for them, the keyboard can be easily removed when desired, and the leather texture is a nice feature. I suppose the only gripe I would make would be the thinness of the cover (compared to the Moko for example which I also have) without the keyboard but then again the case would be thicker and I have not had any experience where it has been a problem--just an observation and a comparison. The only other "issue" is getting used to the back key since I keep hitting the key above it which turns off the screen but it is becoming less of a problem with experience.
The pull out back so the Ipad Air can stand up works great. I am sitting here at Barnes and Nobles drinking coffee typing away and this is quite a nice experience. It may be that Bear Motion has learned from their past issues and put out a great product. In any case, if my opinion changes I will update this review.

iPad Air Case - too soft but keyboard is good so far (Day 1) Nov 18, 2013
3.5 stars. I just received my case today. I was so excited to get it, especially because I plan to use it to take notes in class and the onscreen keyboard doesn't quite cut it when you're trying to quickly take notes. The keyboard itself was incredibly easy to connect and I'm very happy with the feel of it. I'll have to adjust to the size and the placement of a few of the keys but I'm sure it will be a quick transition. I'll have to see how long the keyboard lasts given some of the reviews on this page.
However, the major drawback for me is with the design of the case itself. First of all, it is very flimsy. I wasn't expecting real leather at this price so that doesn't bother me. However, the case is very soft as some reviewers mentioned. It would have benefited from a hard insert of some sort. I don't think I could drop my iPad and expect it to survive the fall, which makes me very nervous. In fact, the $10 temporary case I bought will probably serve me better in that regard.
I still think this was worth the buy only because other keyboards were much more expensive. I only hope it stands the test of time.

Great cover for IPAD AIR Nov 26, 2013
By Maria L.
It's a great case. Covers ipad air all around. The only problem is the "stand". When the ipad is closed it comes out so you have to close it constantly. But overall great quality, great keyboard and great protection.

Love it in every way Jan 25, 2014
By Richard Whitson
Because of it's low price I didn't have high expectations when I ordered the Bear Motion case for my new iPad Air. WOW, was I surprised when I received it; quality product in every way. After about a month the keyboard stopped working; "you get what you pay for" if first thought, but decided to write Pro Ebiz to see if they could offer some support. Again I was surprised when the responded immediately and walked me through the fix......operator error, forgot to periodically charge the keyboard. Great product and service; worth much more than what I paid for it.

Really nice case for the price. Dec 19, 2013
By Joe Caputo II
I bought my new iPad Air during the Target trade-in promotion in November. The iPad Air was so new at the time, Target did not have any cases in stock. I found this one on Amazon and it had all the features I wanted, and was a bargain at the price. I was really pleased when it arrived. It is a soft leather-feel case with a tri-folding cover. The iPad tucks into the case at the center fold and is held snugly with a full length velcro'd flap. The slim Bluetooth keyboard, which also has a soft leather cover on the palm pad and back, uses sewn-in magnets in it's own case to attach to the inside of the folding iPad cover. The plastic keys touch the iPad screen when closed -- don't know if that is cause for concern. It detaches easily and can be stored separately, but it is thin enough so that when attached to the iPad, it's not bulky. And it has not ever fallen out of the case during handling. The keyboard comes with a USB cable and it is recharged by the iPad charger. I have not used the keyboard enough to know how long a charge lasts. The keys are not quite full size, but are large enough to type comfortably. The back of the iPad case has a built-in rigid flap that acts as a "kickstand" for typing in landscape mode. Convenient. For the price, it's a very nice case and keyboard combination.
