Great for the iPad

  • Excerpt: I got this keyboard to use with my iPad, PS3, and my HTPC and it works quite well.  I like having the option of utilizing a numpad whenever I want, thus decreasing the size of the keyboard and making it easy to place on your lap.  I don't want to discuss why I didn't get a netbook if I got a keyboard for the iPad, but I sometimes need to use a keyboard, and I think this is a better solution than buying Apple's expensive keyboard + dock.

  • Summary: I use this with my ASUS motherboard that has built-in Bluetooth. It stays paired and responds well. I like the small size and the feel of the keys. Also have the Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse.

"Lightweight, slim but goes to sleep all the time!"

  • Pros: Lightweight, slim, comfortable to use, nice feel, bluetooth connectivity frees USB port on notebook. Separate Number pad makes for small footprint on desk when it's not needed, also allows flexible work layout when it is.
  • Cons: Battery powered so constantly timesout and goes to sleep. Is slugish and loses characters coming out of idle. No LED Caps Lock or Num Lock indications. Numlock functions on number pad have no legend overlay, so require memory or crib sheet to use.

"I love love love the touch of this keyboard."

  • Pros: I am a bit of a keyboard fanatic and hate the mushy feel so many keyboards have. This keyboard has the perfect touch.
  • Cons: I do find it a bit annoying that on first use it takes a couple of seconds to connect up (presumbly as a battery saving device).

Best Keyboard Ever!

  • Summary: I have been buying keyboards for several years and could never get it right. This is by far the neatest keyboard I have ever used. All who have tried it at my house agree with me. Good job Microsoft on this one!

Pretty Sweet

  • Summary: Comfortable to type on and very light. The shape and size make transportation slightly more awkward than some smaller bluetooth keyboards out there, but if you're more interested in avoiding cramped hands than in carrying your keyboard in as small a space as possible, this is a great buy.

"Absolute waste of money, complete junk..."

orlandotommy, CNET

  • Pros: Cool design
  • Cons: Keyboard goes into sleep mode constantly, if i dont type on it for as little as a minute i have to hit the keys on the keyboard 5-10 times to wake it up. Setup with Win7 was also awful, tried on 2 different machines and got the same issues.
