Review: Minisuit Ultra-Thin Aluminium Keyboard Cover (Nexus 7 2013)
As I stated when reviewing the Minisuit 3-in-1 Folio Case for the Nexus 7 2013, the most important things a writer looks for in any keyboard are key travel, spacing and feedback. Obviously a travel keyboard throws some additional requirements into the mix such as weight, size and battery life. However, when it comes to the single most important factor for me personally, and that's key spacing, the Minisuit Ultra-Thin Aluminium Bluetooth Keyboard Cover falls flat. There is simply no spacing at all, the keys just seem to merge together and it is very hard indeed not to hit the neighbouring keys when typing at any rate above 'slowly hunt and peck with extreme care'. This lack of spacing does allow for a very small keyboard solution, there's no denying that, but it comes at the cost of usability and as far as I am concerned that's a deal-breaker.
