Excerpt: I had an ergonomic assessment of my desk and found I was reaching too far over to reach my mouse. I rarely use the numbers pad so it was recommended that I use the mini keyboard. I love it. The only thing it did not come with was clear instructions for hot keys, etc. It took a while to get used to it but I love it.
Summary: A little noisy when typing but the keys are pretty much same size as normal keyboard so very easy to use. The small footprint allows for so much extra room, wish I had gotten this a long time ago.
Summary: What is the delete key doing in the bottom row?
Pros: This thing is heavy and solid.
Cons: The Bottom row is crowded with tiny keys. 2 windows keys are 1 too many. Worse, I can't get comfortable with the Fn key being on the bottom left corner instead of the Ctrl. The upper right corner is equally messed up, it has the Pause key instead of the Delete key. I'm going to get another Siig, which deals well with size and placement of keys.
Excerpt: I use this on a rack tray for our servers. Only thing I wish it had would be a numeric keypad and I am sure that if I wanted to spend more that I could have found one. Good for rack trays though!
Pros: Durable, Easy Connectivity, Fast Connection, Versatile
Summary: This fit right in between my Belkin n52te and my spiffy logitech mouse. Was pondering one day how I could play WOW in bed. So I purchased a hospital table that was designed to roll over a bed which could lift up and down as well as tilt. Drilled a few holes and mounted a widescreen flatpanel monitor, velcro'd game controller and this keyboard to the table, built a frame that cantilevered the computer to the opposite side of the overhanging table to take some stress off...
Pros: It works, not dog ugly.
Cons: I'm not a midget and some of those keys are way small. Easy to hit the wrong key. But, what do you expect for such a small keyboard.
Summary: The main keyboard I use is a nice big Microsoft Ergo Keyboard 4000 on my keyboard tray. I use an Ideazon Fang gamepad and a Microsoft Habu mouse with a Razer eXactMat (control side) for my gaming. These items I have on my desktop, but that keyboard is not designed for gaming, so I wanted a small one to use without pulling out the keyboard tray.
Pros: Its a really small keyboard width wise which is something I was looking for. I just wanted to put it on my desk when gaming to type to people online and it does that job well.
Cons: As others have stated, the keys are very stiff. Even after some decent use they have not really loosened up.
Summary: After a while (usually a few days, sometimes only a few hours), the keyboard stops working (a message pops up that says something along the lines of "An unrecognized USB device has been inserted"). Unplugging and replugging fixes it most of the time. I leave my computer running all the time, so maybe turning it on and off each day would reset the keyboard frequently enough that this wouldn't happen. I was going to RMA, but it's already been a few weeks.
Pros: Compact, which is exactly what I was looking for.
Cons: If you type faster than about 50wpm, it begins to transpose keys. I repeated this test many times, and with other standard keyboards - so it's not because I was accidentally transposing them myself. If you type too quickly, it really will flip two keys once in a while!
