Nice keyboard, but you'll need the driver and batteries before using
30 December 2012
Summary: This is a nice keyboard, although it takes a little getting used to. I'm using it with my laptop. The buyer should be aware that it doesn't come with batteries (it uses two AAA's) or software. You'll have to download the driver from Microsoft. I had to install the driver and move the transceiver to a different USB port than the one I originally used to get this keyboard to work. But since then, it's been behaving fine.
Summary: 1) the arrow key is a bit touchy if you use soft like excel and move from box to box. Not sure if it's my fingers that too big or if I push too fast. Still not an inconvenience to me. but it might be a pain for arrow users in other soft.
Pros: 1) It is supper small.
Cons: Very minor things which shouldn't bother you if you are considering this keyboard:
Pros: I was pleasantly surprised with this keyboard especially after taking it out of the well packed box and removing it from the hardy cloth "pocket" it comes with. I assume for travelling since the pouch won't be that usable in the home. Installed the 2 AAA batteries that came with it,found the tiny Nano Transceiver in a recess on the back which is held on magnetically (nice touch), plugged it into a USB port, and it installed itself being usable within seconds.
Cons: It isn't so great for fast touch typists IMO as the "throw" of the keyboard is half that of standard keyboards. Better off with a standard keyboard for daily PC desktop use.
Summary: It is an excellent keyboard, perfect to reduce the clutter on your desk. It is smaller than a usual keyboard and has less keys (no num pad on the right, no right control key, one button for all arrows instead of four). But contrary to other reviewers, I consider that to be a big plus, given that I'd rarely use the keys that are left out. It might take one or two days to get used to, but that's it.
takes some getting used to, but overall a good lttle keyboard

Pros: i bought this keyboard after using my friend's who has his set up with his htpc (laptop). his laptop is in a closet around the corner form where he sits to watch tv and the signal is great. he also has the arc mouse, but i do a lot of gaming so i use a gaming mouse. i also use a gamepad so i didn't need a gaming keyboard. i chose this one because of my prior use of my friend's and for it's size, wireless function and ergonomics.
Nice keyboard, stylish, saves a lot of space, excellent build quality

Summary: Nice keyboard, saves a lot of desk space, easy to carry. Takes a lot of getting used to it, especially the arrow keys, all four arrow keys are on one button. Home and end button are on the function key rows. The keys are not placed in the usual locations, hence you will have to get used to it. once you get used to it, its an awesome keyboard.
