SEATTLE -- Let me begin by saying: I test an inordinate amount of tech. From gadgets to accessories, add-ons and a lot of garbage that never makes it into my savings blog, I'm only impressed with a third of what I test at most. It's also kind of ironic that today's Ways to Save is also on sale for one third of its regular price. If you want a more productive iPad, I have you covered today - literally!

In my continued quest to save you time and money, I've been waiting about a month for today's deal drop. As much as we love our iPads, many of you may have figured out regardless of how wonderful you are at touch typing, a keyboard is often the key to real iPad productivity. It's also a shame that this essential accessory is usually one of the biggest rip-offs. A great iPad keyboard/case combo usually costs somewhere between $59 an $100, until today.

The Versavu Keyboard Case for the iPad 2, 3 and 4 is my top tech pick today and one of the best Keyboard Case combos I've tested. This case includes a QWERTY, low-profile Bluetooth keyboard with awesome tactile response. Aside from the keyboard feeling great, the case truly is thoughtfully designed with a scratch-resistant frame around the keyboard to prevent your iPad from touching the keys when the case is closed and ready for transport. The case also allows you to move the iPad 360 degrees while still inside the case for horizontal or vertical viewing. While this case is on-sale at many major retailers this week, the lowest price I've ever seen anywhere is $29.99 down from an MSRP of $99.99. That deal alongside my pick for an iPad Air keyboard is below.
