    I went to Best Buy because their online computer said that they had both the Tab S3 and KB at the store. Not so, so after buying the S3, I ordered it from another company for next day delivery. I am very happy with it. The keys have a good, clean feel to them and the spacing is adequate so that I'm not stumbling over multiple key presses when stabbing at a key. The magnets hold the S3 firmly in place and in the month that I've had it, there has been no slippage. I have no problem with flipping the case open and holding onto the tablet for reading, etc. with the KB then on the back. When the tablet is in being used as a small lap top, the S3 engages, and stays put, very well to the case. And, I like that it is powered by the tablet - no separate battery to charge. Since the S3, unlike the Note series phones, does not allow internal storage of the pen, I like that there is a holder on the case. Personally, I'd rather see a slip cover/pocket for the pen, instead of it dangling from the case as it does - if you put the tablet into a backpack, the pen can get tangled with items in the pack. The only other downside I have with the case is that even though there is an outline for a cutout for the camera lens, it is not punched out. So, you have to remove the S3 from the case to use the camera. Therefore, I find my phone much more convenient for taking pictures. I am really tempted to take a jewelers' saw and cut out the area marked for the cutout. But, maybe there are some electronics running through there. Anyone have an x-ray machine. :) I've seen some people down rating the KB/case because of the color. This seems rather silly to me. If you don't like the color, don't buy it. If you do buy it, how does the color affect its usefulness?

    Not awful but fails where it should shine.

    I purchased this upon the launch of the Tab S3 in hopes I would find a use case scenario for it. Ended up returning it for the folio case. First off I wasn't a huge fan on the color option. The typing experience is not very fulfilling. Typing in your lap is quite cumbersome and to me just felt pointless considering the ways I tend to use tablets. Cramped keys and a ridiculously small shift key on the right side make its form factor hard to justify for the price. I mainly wanted a case for some protection and while this offers some I found myself wanting to just remove it instead of folding it back and holding on to the keys. They are obviously inactive when holding the Tablet this way but it still just adds some unneeded bulk to an otherwise slim piece of tech. Unless you have a specific need for this I would look into other options before dumping the $. For those of you thinking that the regular folio case doesn't have a way to hold the S pen you will be happy to know that the magnets on the front of the folio case hold it nicely in place. Better than the loop ring provided with the keyboard case. If you need a keyboard that badly using a wireless makes much more since imho.

    Made for to the Tab S3, it tuns the tablet into an android 2 in 1. The keyboard has a good feel to it and even works with my large hands. With its magnetic cover, the Tab S3 attaches on and off almost automaticlly. You have to take Tab off the case to use the rear facing camera. The Tab S3 is pretty slick to hold, folding the keyboard over backwards feels comfortable to hold so the only time I remove it from the case is to take a photo with the rear camera, which is seldom. It has a looped attachement for the Tab's S Pen that is stuck to a designated spot on the bottom of the keyboard by some sort of stickum glue on the loop attachment. I wasn't sure how that would hold up, but so far so good (after the 1st month). I did clamp the loop after attaching it for several hours before use and it is holding tight so far. It is convient to have the S Pen with the case at all times. It is pretty expensive for a case $140, but I bought it on a Best Buy sale for $75 and feel like that is a very good value.

    Let me start by saying that I use this tablet primarily for reading and occassional browsing or other minor tasks. As such, the keyboard is secondary to my use. However, when I actually want or need to use a keyboard for input, this case serves my needs well. The case uses magnets to attach the back of the Tab Pro 3. Initially I felt uneasy about the tablet just "sticking" to the case without any other attachment. Over a short amount of time with use, I'm comfortable with this approach. I sometimes use a small phone stand when sitting at a table to read material in portrait mode. Surprisingly, the thickness of tablet with the keyboard folded behind actually fits within the phone stand. The case does not allow the tablet's camera to be used - at all. If this is important, it may not be the case for you. Samsung provides a separate holder for the pen that attaches directly to the underside of the keyboard portion of the case - which is the front cover. No problems with this yet - but I'm pretty careful with packing and storing the tablet for travel. Time will tell when there's more miles of use. Overall, this may not be the perfect tablet for some, but for my use, it's quite good.

    Impressed with the Keyboard

    This case/keyboard combination was an impulse purchase at the time we bought the Tab S3. It was on sale at the time, which made the purchase a no-brainer. Since getting it home and using it now for a few weeks, I must admit it was an excellent decision and worth every penny of it's normal selling price of about $150. The keys have a great feel to them and they do not make the case aspect of the product too bulky or cumbersome when using the Tab S3 in tablet mode. The keyboard connects to the tablet via built in connectors that attach quickly and easily. When the keyboard is connected to the tablet, a very functional stand and position is established that is great when working on a table, but is sometimes uncomfortable when placed in my lap. However, I have large hands and arms and I suspect that smaller individuals may not experience this limitation. Net of all this, I like it and highly recommend it.

    I bought this at the same time I purchased my S3 in order to make my tablet more of a true work tool. It's a nice case, has protected my tablet from the one tumble its had off my night stand, and doesn't add too much weight keeping the entire unit thin. The keyboard keys have a nice tactile response and much nicer than typing on a screen. The holster for the S Pen is a nice touch too. The drawbacks are it does feel weird the first few times you fold the case over when using the tablet in portrait mode but you do get past it. When gaming in Landscape the S Pen in the holster can get in the way but its certainly a first world problem. When watching something while lying down, the screen angle isn't always optimal and it did take me a couple of days to not "fat finger" the typing on a truncated keyboard. Despite these minor things it is a great case and very nice to type on. If you're looking to make your tablet a work tool its certainly the way to go.

    One of the Best Mobile Keyboards

    As far as mobile keyboards go, this is one of the best I've used. The keys are well-spaced and have a good amount of travel. The case adds some bulk to the tablet, but it also feels sturdy and protective. The case sticks to the tablet using internal magnets, so it's as thin as it can be. The magnets seem to hold it well, and it makes it easy to remove the tab whenever you need to. It comes with a stick-on stylus holder that you can elect to mount or not mount onto the case. Since there's no place in the tablet to hold the stylus this is a welcome feature. My only real complaint is that every time I use the number keys I hit the screen, too.

    This case is pretty handy in a lot of ways and I have found the keyboard easy to use both in its size and responsiveness. Though there are some limitations as mentioned in previous posts, the main reason I would give this case 4-stars is the lack of a rear camera hole when one is clearly described in the user guide. Yes, the tablet can be easily removed, but it seems that someone at Samsung intended there to be camera access when the case was in use, but that was not communicated to the design department. I have read about others trying to get the case replaced by Samsung due to the lack of a camera hole only to receive another case with the same problem - save yourself the trouble and just accept that this feature is missing, or buy a different keyboard case from another manufacturer.
