User Review

  • Pros: Looks nice and does not take up much space
  • Cons: Signal cuts out constantly. Might as well a slightly larger more responsive keyboard for the same price

not a bad part

Robert B., Newegg
10 April 2014
  • Pros: easy on lap, takes up little space, great for a laptop or any system really
  • Cons: cannot have it plugged in while installing windows. causes a driver error crash, so use an alternate keyboard or just unplug before first reboot. also recently had either a shift key or caps lock key die. the key still works but sticky keys pops up every 5 minutes or so as if it keeps resetting. ...

Good keyboard, but has some key flaws

John R., Newegg
5 November 2010
  • Pros: Small size - the primary reason that I bought it Even though it is small, it includes most of the function keys etc. that are present on a full size keyboard Good battery life so far
  • Cons: The arrow keys (or key) - very stiff and frustrating to use. I didn't think that it was going to be much of an issue when I bought it, but it gets on you nerves, especially if you use them regularly Small control key and there is only one (they should have made the Windows key small and he contro...

Bad for the price

Max F., Newegg
1 September 2010
  • Summary: I can't say I'd buy this again if I were to go out for another keyboard.
  • Pros: Overall, a good keyboard. Looks great and the keys feel good. Easy to clean because the keys aren't traditional caps. The USB receiver is tiny, and so far I've not had to pull it out and plug it back in to reset it, as is sometimes the problem with wireless keyboards. The keyboard will show finge...
  • Cons: Too expensive. A keyboard with much more functionality can be gotten for this price, or a keyboard with the same functionality can be acquire for much cheaper. Certain keys - particularly the d key - have to be struck directly on the center, or it won't register. It might not be so annoying if it...

Not suitable for use with ipad or iPhone

Heathcliffe, Tesco
15 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The keyboard is very light and the design is very good and easy to use. It works with a wifi dongle (supplied) which you put into pc or laptop USB slot. It is not suitable for ipad without another adapter from apple. I am sure the keyboard would work well with gaming and Internet TV.

Clever design - hard to type

JTGW, Amazon
20 August 2012
  • Summary: Clever design, but too clever by half - it's awkward to type on. It now sits unused in a drawer, and I type on the laptop keyboard. What's the point of a keyboard that looks great but isn't very usable?

A Good And Neat Looking Keyboard...

Rohan Vijay, Zopper
21 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Its all looks and little performance and that’s as close a discription as one can get to describing the Microsoft Arc wireless keyboard. First thing that strikes you is the absence of the num pad which is a big blow in itself.

Connection problems

Not Bad

Klachilies, Amazon
13 May 2010
  • Summary: This is a very nicely designed and built keyboard. The quality of it is obvious as soon as you handle it but beware. If you have big or even medium size hands this is not the keyboard for you.
