Great for the iPad

bobaloba, Viewpoints

  • 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.

Nice keyboard

Overstock
10 April 2010
  • Summary: I had hard time fnding a keyboard with no number pad. I wanted one because with an attached number pad, my mouse was too far to the right. Now the mouse is where it should be and I'm more confortable. I don't use the number pad often, so I don't mind having it "somewhere else." The keyboard has a nice touch and, because I type fast, it keeps up nicely. The slight curve fits my hands just right.

"Keyboard looks and feels high quality; somewhat bulky"

Broodwolf, CNET

  • Pros: Comfortable feel and includes useful extra buttons. Bluetooth reception good anywhere in a room. Looks sleek. The keys feel soft but have a firm tactile response with little noise.
  • Cons: Biggest gripe: the weak spacebar often fails to register a space. Somewhat difficult setup. Wide size can add to comfort or in my case make it frustratingly bulky. (but where else are you going to put all those extra buttons?)

"Great for a keyboard mouse combo in this price range..."

wheelzup, CNET
12 December 2005
  • Pros: Keyboard has a solid feel not flimsy like some, the mouse is very comfortable and accurate
  • Cons: The keyboard will skip from time to time which is a problem especially if you do a lot of typing, for gaming the mouse will suck a battery dry in a hurry especially with action FPS

"Save your wired peripherals"

CNET
22 February 2005
  • Pros: Fast, lag free wireless(after the first few seconds). Beautiful form factor for keyboard and mouse. Set up fairly simple.
  • Cons: MAKE SURE that you have windows xp. I didn't, and went through computer hell trying to find a version that was cra...nevermind. Key and mouse lag for the first few seconds, but are fine after that. Definitely not a final solution. If you want to do any
