Summary: This is a reliable working keyboard - that is ENORMOUS!!!! I'm working with a tablet, so the last thing I wanted was something this big, so I returned it. However, I did test it first and it is a really excellent keyboard with great, normal placement of all keys. If replacing the keyboard on a desktop system, this would be my first choice.
good product though it is not clear in the advertising that it can be used with a non apple /Mac pc

Summary: does what it is meant to do as a folding travelers keyboard. Some keys are in non conventional locations making it hard for a true touch typist to keep their speed up. It would be nice if the keyboard incorporated a USB hub so that a corded mouse could be attached to the PC via the keyboard. Lap tops often do not have enough USB so the keyboard and a mouse under the present configuration would use up all of the USB outlets on my laptop.
Summary: I spend a bit of 'off work time' studying in cafes. Enough time such that using the laptop keyboard had gotten to become an obstacle. I wanted a fold up keyboard that was specifically meant to be used with a PC. There are plenty of folding keyboards that are targeted for use with phones and new tablets.
Good value. My laptop experience is better with this product.

Summary: I have one already and bought this second one for my wife. It's much nicer to use than the built-in keyboard on my laptop. It's light and convenient - it easily fits into my laptop bag. The feel of the keyboard is good - pretty close to working on a regular desktop keyboard. The only minor issue is that it doesn't click into a perfect lay-flat configuration when unfolded.
Summary: I used to have a smaller Targus Folding Keyboard, but needed to replace it when it broke. After searching around, I decided to purchase the Matias keyboard here. Overall, a great keyboard! I like it better than the old Targus because it's a full size keyboard. The ability to fold it to fit in my computer bag really sold it for me. It fits in there perfectly. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that when it is fully open, it doesn't lie flat.
Summary: The Matias Folding Keyboard is a worthwhile accessory for a laptop. It is much easier to use than the laptop keyboards and because if folds in half, it is very convenient for travel. It is not as good as a regular desktop keyboard and it doesn't lock when unfolded. It has some non-standard key configurations. These latter are minor inconviences compared to the improvement over the laptop keyboards.
Summary: This is a very nice little travel keyboard. The tactile feel and key placement is great, although some of the keys are a little smaller than usual (navigation and function keys). The only complaint I have is that it doesn't lock open...otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
