Got mine a few days ago - £17 from Amazon.

Quality-wise, it's good.

Couple of things - the keyboard isn't *quite* what I'm used to, obviously it's intended as an android keyboard, so no windows or function keys. Also has a redundant "back" key.

Just wondering if anyone has managed to successfully remap their keys and how they managed it?

I'm really tempted by this for my Linx 8. Quick question though (for those that have one already) - can the case be folded back on itself so you can use the Linx as a tablet? What I mean is if you don't need to use the keyboard for something, rather than take the Linx out of the case completely can you fold back the keyboard so it goes underneath/at the back of the Linx so you can use it as a tablet? Does that make sense?

Yes (it does make sense) and yes (you can).

Excellent.

Do you find it reconnects OK after the tablet has awoken from sleep (connected standby) or if you switch the keyboard off and then on again? I've read some reports on other cases - not specifically for Linx - where you have to go through the pairing again before they will work again.

I've had no problems at all with it. I usually switch the keyboard on and off as I use it, it's always connected - except when I mucked about with wi-fi settings, changed mode from 'performance' to 'wi-fi'. Any accessory will fail if the user's daft enough I guess.

I took the plunge and bought one of these. It's fantastic. It holds the Linx 8 really well, feels good quality (unlike a £8 case I bought off eBay which was horrendous -> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/381123528136? ... EBIDX%3AIT).
Yes I know that other case has no keyboard but I just wanted a case to protect it whilst I was researching available keyboards.
The keyboard on this seems pretty good, no issue at all connecting & re-connecting.

It couldn't pair it at first as I had the Wifi settings set to "Wifi" instead of "Performance". Setting it on "Wifi" kills the bluetooth connection.
Overall early days (I've only had it about 4 hours) but seem really good.
