Summary: Small keyboard that only feels slightly cramped. Usually it feels like a full size keyboard. I love the key action on this keyboard better than any I have ever used. Wish it had a numberpad, but then it would be bigger and I wouldn't like that. And some sort of unifying software for the remote dongle would be awesome.
Microsoft Arc keyboard is light weight, comfortable and easy to use.

Summary: Nice design, it is very comfortable to use with good decent feedback. I had no issues with single directional key for my use. Great connection, even from a distance. My only gripe would the glossy plastic, why was this not painted matte???
Excerpt: this little guy is easy to use anywhere anytime. I love to use mine while controlling my xbox while looking for movies, apps, etc. Just wish It had a better way to controle the curser, you have to get the hang of the controller to controle the curser
Pros: Feels Like A Normal Keybo, Gets The Job Done, Small And Comfortable
Cons: Need A Way To Move Curse, Needs A Wireless Mouse Pa
Excerpt: This is a great option if you're looking for a portable keyboard that isn't too large but which still provides a good deal of functionality. This one does that well.Two minor annoyances are 1) the lack of separate arrow keys which results in frequent mistakes (i.e., I'm trying to move the cursor in one direction and it ends up moving a different direction), and 2) the lack of dedicated F7-F12 keys (you need to use the Fn key).I also have a wireless Microsoft mouse and...
Pros: Comfortable Design, Compact, Good range, Highly Compatible, Reliable Performance
Summary: Great compact size, nice-looking slim design, quiet comfortable keyboard. Combined 4-directional navigation key doesn't always read individual touches, and takes some getting used to, but an overall good product. Convenient magnetic storage of wireless receiver for great portability.
positive rating and a dislike - no xp64 shortcut key support

Summary: It is fairly small, 10 inches or so. that was its selling point for me, the keys have a nice feel,slightly like a laptops keyboard feel. no extended support for xp64 as in you cannot program keys and other such tasks. I overall like the keyboard,it is great to use on your coffee table!
Summary: Compact and easy to handle. This keyboard will be helpful when space is an issue on your desk. Its easy to use and hook-up to your PC. The only drawback is there is no arrow keys. You have one button that controls the arrow functions. I purchased this item to save space on my desk. Its very sturdy, well-built, and should fill the bill.
Great little nice looking keyboard, but not for primary use

Summary: Though I do have complaints about its usuability as a primary keyboard, as a media center keyboard, its absolutely perfect and I couldnt consider using anything else. If all you need is an input for some browing or controlling videos on your tv, this is perfect. And if you have small hands, you prob wont even notice the size issues.
Pros: Small, very good looking, light, convenient and small dongle, and perfect for media pcs. Has a good feel and has all the primary keys that you would need. Setup was a breeze, just plug in adapter and viola! it works. Windows 7 will auto install some extra software, but its minor and simple to deal with. I really wanted something less bulky and less nerdy looking that a keyboard in my living room. For that, this fit the bill perfectly.
Cons: Its small. Like 90% smaller than standard keyboard small. I have decent to larger size hands and that means typing is hard. I tried using it as my primary keyboard and though typing was still easy and the keyboard was a good quality, it was just too small for me and my error rate was up and my speed was down. The Function keys overlap, so to use anything other than F1-6, you have to hit the fn key not a big deal, but I use F7 a lot for word :P Arrow key is basically n...
