Summary: This keyboard would find an excellent companion with a trackball on a cramped desktop layout. Wish I had this 15 years ago on my Pentium 2 PC! The chicklet keys may be a pro or a con for you; that's why I left it here. I rather like them. Final Verdict: Highly recommended!
Pros: Small. Excellent for small desks and workbenches. USB HID. Works on absolutely anything, even Windows 98 PCs and USB-Host capable tablets! Has all the keys and indicator LEDs of a full-size keyboard. Full-size keys - I'm able to touch-type on it at full speed.
Cons: The numeric keypad is a laptop-style Overlay that's enabled by Num-Lock. It's easy to accidentally leave it on and type numbers while touch-typing! USB cable is a little on the short side.

Summary: I bought this for my wife, to replace another small keyboard that is perhaps six years old (which will be saved as a working backup). She's on her PC for hours each day and likes this keyboard. I've only used it a little, but if I needed a[nother] small keyboard, I'd probably buy one for myself.
Pros: Small. Good feel; has some feedback. Large backspace.
Cons: None found. Small size or lack of number pad are not cons in a product of this type and size.
Pros: Had it for well over a year now and it has never failed. I love the F key layout. Great for games since you don't have to reach that extra length. No random annoying keys in the way (to the side).
Summary: If you need a mini, get this one. I just ordered another one.
Pros: Great keyboard. Genius makes good stuff. The "BIG" keys are BIG.Layout's nice. The multimedia function keys are good to have. Seems real solid. High marks and low price means I'm happy. I thought I'd seen the last good deal on a keyboard in the '90s, 'til I got this one.
Pros: Nice little keyboard to have around or travel with. I do a lot of repairs and this has been of great help when it comes to troubleshooting other keyboards or USB ports. It's nice and tiny so I can pretty much tuck it away anywhere.
