Just got this so only some quick feedback right now -
I received this today after waiting 3-4 weeks for it to arrive from overseas. For $20 I was skeptical BUT after arriving I am actually pretty pleased.

Pros -
It actually works well. Very responsive and no real delay in typing
It looks pretty good and is not that thick.
The material looks reasonably nice and material does not seem inexpensive which was surprising
They sent an additional larger metal stylus with a soft tip. Very nice.
All of the keys seem to work, with the exception of the "windows" key that I never expected to work. I have not tested out the F keys but will in the coming days.
USB plug plugs in nicely and really not that noticeable.
Nice kickstand to hold up tablet at a good angle.

Cons -
Only one real one and that is that there is no top tab to hold the tablet in if turned upside down that way. The tablet can and will slide out. I see this as a problem for many, but not for me as I will simply hold it upright whenever carrying.
I think I might be able to retrofit something to act as a type tab and I will look into that in the coming days.

I plan to do a full review and take additional pictures and video.

I do find it amusing that it has a windows key on it. Would be better still if it was bluetooth so the USB port was freed up

i am using the folio keyboard to make this rely and it is working perfectly still, even on the net. I agree about the port thing and if Acer would ever make a bluetooth keyboard folio like apple and the xoom have it would be great - but not yet.
I am now looking at the adapter to make the micro port a normal usb port or a simple small usb splitter for the normal usb port. either way this is pretty nice to use the keyboard versus the onscreen keyboard.

I will add this - i do not know what the F keys are for on the keypad because again those are normally Windows functions and this is obviously not running on a windows machine.
also the keypad is a little smaller then normal so does take some getting used to , but if you are used to typing on a blackberry or mobile phone this is way way larger so not to hard to get the hang of it

I agree - saw the same thing, but took a chance at only $30 and it works really well. I am typing this reply to you on it - no delays, the keyboard works great. Sure some of the windows related buttons don't work but that is fine. It makes typing soooooooooo much easier and it looks pretty nice.
