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.

Perfect for Kindle Fire HD

  • Summary: I found this keyboard to be very handy when travelling, it's very responsive, small, lightweight and it's shape makes typing for long periods of time comfortable on the hands. The only thing that stops me from giving this keyboard 5 stars is that it only comes with a case for the numberpad and not one for the keyboard itself but it's not a major issue.

Great keyboard - with one big fault

Hugh Griffiths "Hugh", Amazon
12 July 2012
  • Summary: The keyboard is a good weight and build quality ... typing is easy. It feels solid and reliable. It's a bit larger than the MS Arc keyboard and gains from that with a full set of keys. The only complaint (and it is going to be a continuing problem for me) is that the Backspace and Del keys are in the wrong place. I am constantly hitting Del instead of Backspace - giving me all sorts of grief in my documents and emails.

Not bad for a Bluetooth Device

Mr. L. Baker, Amazon
16 June 2011
  • Summary: I can actually carry this around in my backpack. There's no dongle to lose either, as my bluetooth is built into my laptop. In my experience there will come a point, with a non bluetooth dongle based system, that you will lose the dongle - then you're stuffed. I get the occasional freezing of the keyboard, especially if I don't use it for 10 minutes. It seems to sort itself out though after about 20 seconds.

Good but not a killer

Jacek, Amazon
14 June 2011
  • Summary: I am writing this review on that keyboard. It's the first Microsoft keyboard I own. Being a Mac user I got used to clean cable less design. Due to my profession I like to have short keyboard so I can have a trackball just next to it, but numeric keyboard is important for me as well. Over time I always used usb attached numeric keyboard on the left side of my keyboard. This product seemed perfect for my needs, and it is, almost.

Great looking keyboard

  • Summary: Very cool looking keyboard, easy to set up, comfortable to use but I wish it came with a bluetooth receiver. If it had come with the receiver I would have given it a maximum rating

Fairly nice keyboard

Tom, Edinburgh "Tom", Amazon
27 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a logitech diNovo which had a broken key after several years of good service. I have a cluttered desk and don't need a numeric pad so I like the small wireless keyboards. I chose this one over the new LogiTech diNovo because it was much less expensive and had less multi-media stuff - my PC is a work machine and I don't want lighting under the keys or stereo controls.

Learning to Love

S. Coles "SCC", Amazon
23 July 2010
  • Summary: My first MS Keyboard minus number pad and so far so good. Having to get used to using the Function key controls more than before especially for Home and End controls which I never knew I used so often. Small and concise with the only drawback being the inadequate rubber pads - just not enough height to overcome a less than perfect desk surface. A thin rubberised pad has fixed that when at home.

Almost perfect

Amazon Customer "Maverick", Amazon
1 July 2010
  • Summary: Background/situation: home in the UK, but spend most time abroad working in strange places and sometimes with questionable people, long haul flights etc, so my working life is pretty mobile. I already have a Mattias folding keyboard UK version as at 63 I find it best to work with an external screen or push the Toshiba notebook (12.1" screen) away to about arms' length (I have also started to work at my desk standing up, have modified my home office and assignment...
