Works brilliantly. The case could have done with being a few mm bigger each side but i'm pleased with the purchase so far. Keyboard synced to the Linx8 immediately with no issues. Will post some pictures of it later today.

It arrived today and unfortunately doesn't fit (well, it just about squeezes in but is stressing the elastic tab far more than I'd like - won't be long before it snaps). It overhangs the cover also, so tab is a little exposed. Shame, nice case.


Returning mine..

Back to the drawing board

Found this:

Anyone else tried it? Clearly a cut will need to be made for the Linx 8 windows key, but it looks a match (size wise).. Just wondering about buttons on the side / input / output

As promised, I've now had this case a couple of days and have to say i'm quite impressed!

Seller was very good - the case arrived in a couple of days, so can recommend this seller. The case itself is okay, good quality, but has a bit of flex in it around the joints. The tablet is held in wth four "rubber band" type bungee cords that require a bit of stretching to get aruod the corners, but once they're on, they hold the tablet securely.

The keyboard itself is so much better than i expected. There are a couple of small niggles in that The layout is a bit generic (some of the punctuation keys are in odd places becasue of the small form factor, there are no Function keys, no "Del" key and some of the shortcut keys dont't work properly (like the brightness up/down buttons), but onece you get used to that, it's a very nice little keyboard to type on. The action is very sharp, the keys are easy to hit and it's easy to tell if you've hit the keys properly, so touch typing is possible after a bit of practise too! It's usable on iOS and Android too. The case has magnets in to hold the keyboard securely, conecction to the tablet is quick and reliable and i haven't had to charge the keyboard yet after a good few hours of use.

All in all a very good little set-up if you want to add a bit more functioanlity to your Linx 8 :)

I'm using this keyboard (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00W ... ge_o03_s00 ) and it is working great without any lag. The linx 8 fits in near perfectly IMO and for the price I have no complaints other than typing on such a small keyboard takes some getting used to.
