I have searched and looked everywhere but haven't found a recent post regarding a solid, good quality keyboard folio type case for the Nexus 7. I have found a few but want to know what you guys have and if you have any suggestions.

This is the Poetic Keybook case for the 7 but the reviews are up and down.

This is a offbrand Leather Folio keyboard case but doesn't have any reviews and just looks too cheap.

Thank you!

Re: Keyboard case for Nexus 7?
I purchased an off brand case pretty much just like the cheap eBay one you linked for an older 7" tablet, the Archos G8 70IT. It works, the keyboard is so-so. You'll need to get a full size to micro OTG adapter to use it. Here's a link to that case:

Also what about this one vs the Poetic?

I use a E-Stand I bought for around $50. It works pretty well and you find them on eBay

What about this? Just ordered one a couple days a go. Should be here today or tomorrow. Looked nice for 25 bucks.

Check this out on AMZN:

That keyboard is covered in a few threads. Look for aluminum keyboard in the thread titles.

I read some threads on that. Heard it is a cheap plastic and not really aluminum.

Re: Keyboard case for Nexus 7?
I have a case made by rancid. Bought it at best buy which was ironic since they don't even sell the nexus 7. It stands in landscape at 2 1/2 intervals ( I say half because the "3rd" is basically flat just a slight tilt) and is leather. Great protection and feel. Strong too. Only issue is that its sort of complicated to make it stand at first but once you figure it out its not a problem...just took me 5 minutes my first time LOL.

I have the "BG-7 Rechargeable Wireless Bluetooth 61-Key Keyboard for Google Nexus 7 - Silver + Black" for $24 from DealExtreme.
I had it sent to Germany and am very happy with it.
