iPad Keyboard Case thoughts

Forewarning - this is NOT an advertisement thread, just a thoughts thread.

Have any of you used/own an iPad/iPhone keyboard case? I have recently bought the clam case for iPad (retails at $150) and it is surprisingly not all that great. The keyboard sticks, buttons are small, and it's kind of a pain in the you know where. The thing is though, it's so dang portable. It can flip to 360 degrees, be used as a stand for watching movies, play games, and even type on the virtual keyboard with. It can go in landscape mode with no problem, and when in it's regular stance, acts as a mini little iPad laptop.

Now recently (as in 8 hours ago) I bought the apple keyboard to test it out. I have a late 2011 mbp and love it. The keyboard for this is wireless, so I can also use it for my PC gaming (with, of course, my external display). So I can have a closed laptop. Then again, I will also use it for my iPad with the Clamcase as a stand... that being said, I kind of feel like it's a waste of money. I just bought the PadPivot from amazon, and that was relatively cheap compared to a whopping 150 buckaroos.

Now for the point of the thread, do any of you use an iPad keyboard case?
