Use remapping script and it works well.

  • Summary: It seemed difficult to find a full-ish sized bluetooth keyboard for the Surface Pro. This one works pretty well. But it's missing the INS key and there doesn't seem to lock the F1-F12 keys (you need to press the Fn key to get to those.) I found a free utility at www.appmonks.com/sculpt that will toggle key remapping and lock the F1-F12 keys and make PrtScn the INS key. Script source is there if you want to change it.

Connects to and works well with an iPad

  • Summary: This is a very slim wireless keyboard.  Its no more than 2cm deep and is about the side of a small notebook type laptop. I found it really easy to put the supplied AAA batteries, switch it on and connect via bluetooth TO MY IPAD!!!  Yes,  I am currently typing this review on my keyboard into Amazon via my iPad.  Oh I can't tell you how good it feels to be able to touch type this on a proper keyboard.

The Sculpt Mobile Keyboard

Sussman "Sussman", Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: Before I begin my review I must admit that I am not a natural typist, and I very much use a key board in a `one/two finger' typing mode, if that makes sense. I was lucky enough to be given an unwanted cheap tablet at work and I wanted to get reasonably portable key board to use with it. This is essentially the reason I chose the Microsoft Sculpt Mobile.

Works well with a Windows PC, not quite so well with an iPad

M. Williams "Matt Williams", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a Bluetooth keyboard, which may be a good thing for you if your device has Bluetooth. My laptop doesn't have Bluetooth built in but I've got a tiny Belkin Bluetooth adaptor that I have finally found a use for. On my Windows 7 laptop it installed very quickly and effortlessly. You have to type in a short numeric code to make it pair bond. The thing is, then I paired it with my iPad, which I found to be a bit underwhelming.

Small sized, functional, Bluetooth keyboard.

JK "Julie K.", Amazon
27 July 2013
  • Summary: I ordered the keyboard because I recently had surgery on my hand which has made using the keyboard on my phone difficult for the time being. I'm not technically minded so please forgive the lack of technical terms or computer jargon in this review. I'm just going to give a simple description of my experience so as not to mislead anyone. Small sized, non bulky keyboard that's light and thin enough to carry around without taking up a lot of room.

Hard to get used to

  • Excerpt: "Microsoft produces fantastic quality hardware despite being mainly know for its software. This keyboard is similar to many of its others, great compatibility - not only with its own operating system (I have tried it with Ubuntu too). The keyboard is lightweight for partability but also is not too lght as to slide when typing. It is perfectly weighted. The curve, although only slight, can take a while to get used to however. I still haven;'t fully ...
  • Pros: Perfect weight
  • Cons: Curve can be difficult to handle

Great service from Amazon

Wong "Wong", Amazon

  • Summary: First keyboard arrived, I wasn't impressed. The space bar wasn't very good and you had to hit it dead centre or the words would stick together quite often so I asked for a replacement and Amazon handled that swiftly and quickly. Got it sent out even before I mailed the first one. Always a good idea to keep the original packaging for at least a week while you are trying it out. Second keyboard was much better.

Fantastic keyboard

Sparkey, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: Just started using the keyboard today. Its really quiet & soft to type, light weight and the look of the keyboard is amazing. The bluetooth was a bit of a pain to set up as the keyboard wouldn't become visible, to the computer, without constantly pressing in the connect button but i'm unsure whether it's just this particular keyboard or all of the 5000 series. Overall plaesed with the purchase but we shall see how the batteries hold up to some constant use.

- bon clavier pour usage type netbook -

Alain du Lac "al94", Amazon
18 August 2012
  • Summary: Usage quasi quotidien sans problème. - A choisir sans trop hésiter, mais sans perdre de vue qu'un tel clavier n'est ni adapté pour la bureautique (à cause de l'ergonomie un peu exotique), ni pour les jeux (à cause d'une réactivité trop lente). Sinon, on appréciera son caractère nomade (attention alors à protéger les touches).
