Summary: Is there a wireless keyboard that doesn't suck?
Pros: Small, easy for travel
Cons: Disconnects ALL THE TIME. Have to pull the batteries, put 'em back in - will work again for a few days before having to pull the batteries again. Inb4 drivers, new batteries, etc - yes. I've tried this on a couple system, keyboard sucks.
Summary: The good looks, the price, and the wireless capability mean nothing if you're going to use this keyboard for more than typing in search engines.
Pros: The keyboard is compact, which is what my wife really wanted for her new setup. The lack of a separate number pad and excess keys help to accomplish this. We also got it on sale at a local shop for $30.
Cons: My wife blogs quite often. I occasionally play some FPS games. The receiver is 2 feet away and we both have issues with input lag, periods of complete unresponsiveness, duplicate keystrokes, and some keys not responding unless they're pressed in a certain fashion (especially the space bar) even w...
Summary: For the most part the keyboard works well enough, but there's two fatal flaws for my particular use. As a programmer, I find myself making heavy use of a keyboard's arrow keys. This enables me to navigate through a text editor easily without having to move my hand back and forth between the mouse...
Pros: Small size; good feel; decent range.
Cons: Nearly useless arrow key support; no Scroll Lock key.
Summary: I've found that I replace the batteries about once a week. When they get low, it drops keystrokes like mad. Also, it seems that stuff that gets or under the back of the unit can block signal. And then sometimes, it just takes a break for a few seconds.
Pros: Compact, decent feeling keys for the most part. Tiny USB dongle.
Cons: Battery life. Battery life. Battery life Arrow key
Summary: Neat and compact design. Quiet soft touch keys. Unfortunately the function doesn't follow the design. Since day one I've had problems with lag and missing characters. I've moved the transmitter dongle to different USB ports which seems to work for a short while.Then bac to typing away then seeing...
Summary: I've been looking for a great, ergonomic friendly, compact keyboard and thought I had found it with the Microsoft Arc ... Unfortunately this keyboard fails in a couple of areas: * the keys are very shallow and when you press them at an angle they stick a bit in their "key hole" ... e.g.
Excerpt: I bought this keyboard as I wanted a compact wireless solution for my media centre-like PC. And first of all. It looks great. It is something that you will not need to be ashamed of having lying on your coffee table.
Pros: Great looks, volume control, good reception, compact design
Summary: Beautifully designed but it stops working almost every time I use it and I have to remove and replace the batteries to get it working again. Having to do this once a week might be acceptable for such a lovely object, but virtually every time I use it? - No thanks.
