Love the vintage look and feel. Great product and works with my iPad Pro.
The keyboard is a joy to use, especially for writing longer pieces of work.
It has lots of clever functions such as the scroll bar operating volume control but it's mostly all about the satisfying click of the keys.
The price is higher than a basic, functional keyboard but this would make a gift and a half to anyone who writes for a living or for study. The additional carry case is the icing on the cake.
Well, I have had possession of my beautiful Qwerkywriter S and its impressive case for a little over two weeks and am prepared to give this a thorough review for anyone wishing to go down this road.
I type about a half hour or more on this baby every day. I use this in conjunction with a new iPad mini 5 and it is the perfect combination. There has been no issues with connectivity with the Bluetooth.
As far as construction is concerned, this thing is heavy and if your not quite thinking about it can really be mixed up with an honest to goodness antique typewriter, for which I have many and use many. Heavy and solid, it is unlike any other computer keyboard I have ever seen. I do have an issue though, the trough where you put your tablet is stationary. I should be more flexible where you can rotate your tablet a few degrees to match your typing stance. This has only been a small slight issue for me when I am resting the Q on my lap. Tables are fine.
This baby is a dream to type with. Very satisfying to have the key travel it has. Typewriterish. The key tops are removable and are plastic. I would love to see them come out with real glass keys. That would be the end of the world. But, at least, they should put some thought into making available, different colour key tops that you could integrate with the beautiful black ones. Red, white or green would be awesome.
I can type pretty fast and this thing doesn’t slow me down a bit. The sound is of a click, click, click. It’s not very loud and can easily be taken to your favourite coffee shop and is not an annoyance to anyone.
It is stunning, absolutely gorgeous. I bring really old glass key manual typewriters with the vintage linen cases to the coffee shop and they garner some interest but nothing like when I pull out the Q and slip the mini into the tray. Everyone from all ages are coming up to me asking tons of questions about this, how to get it, where to get it, price, how did you find out about it. Things like that. It is the coolest thing that has every been brought into our local Tim Hortons by far.
The case is well worth the money. It is of supreme quality and holds the Q snugly and has a nice sleeve for the storage of a full size iPad. There are extra sleeves and zippered pockets galore for all your needs. The outside of the case is pure quality. The texture is almost like an alligator or some kind of reptile. Very classy.
It can be padlocked.
Having and using the Q and the case for over two weeks, I would say that if it cost me $1000 total, it would be worth it. Canadians, be warned, the customs import fees for the both were $133. Factor this in.
Both, though, are highly, highly recommended.
Great job guys. !!!!
Bought it for my college daughters birthday. Love it!! She’s just typed a million miles!! Fun unique gift. She loves it!
It fits the keyboard, my MacBook and my iPad. Plus chargers. It’s beautiful to look at and wonderfully constructed. Nice soft felt, heavy duty zippers, strong shoulder strap. Ideal.
