Summary: Love the key touch as a career typist. Small profile leaves greater desk area and it easily moves for setting aside when not in use. Minor problem with a few keys that lost contact but a firm tap and all was fine.
Summary: Just got it today, but so far, absolutely excellent. I type about 100+ words per minute, and as a man, I often jar my finger and thumb muscles by hitting them too hard, as well as bruising the ends of my fingers. This thing is causing me to lighten up on the impact. FAR SUPERIOR to all other types of keyboards! The keys are regular full-size, yet there is no excess border around the keys, which makes for a very small footprint.
Summary: The original USB receiver I got with the keyboard malfunctioned during the first month. But customer service at Rapoo were very nice and sent me a replacement after they asked me to run a few normal tests. My new USB receiver (and keyboard) have been working like a charm ever since.
Summary: Overall, I haven't had this keyboard for too long, but I've just built a new computer, and was looking for something to save as much desktop space as possible since I do graphic design, and run dual monitors, one of which is a drawing tablet and requires ample desktop space. I was looking for something light weight, wireless, small, easy to type on since I do a lot of web programming, all the while looking good.
Pros: The keyboard layout and feel is very similar to a laptop keyboard. It's easy to type on with light touch, while being small and light weight. The brushed aluminum backing gives it a sturdy feel under your finger tips and aesthetically, makes a nice addition to your desktop. I really like that the media controls require an "FN" keystroke to use, because it helps cut down on the size of the keyboard without much excess buttons, saving you some desktop real estate. I per...
Cons: The delete button is a bit small and high up/out of the way, but if you get into the habit of using short keys, like in Adobe Photoshop, holding shift isn't an extra burden when using the number pad's larger delete button. The arrow keys are a bit small, so this may be the ideal keyboard for word processing, but playing games is probably another story. Another small thing that can be noticeable, is that the rubberized grips at the base of the keyboard don't tend to gr...
Summary: Overall, I am very satisfied with this keyboard. Some mini-keyboard designs are overzealous in their use of function keys. This keyboard is more or less a standard keyboard but with no dead space. The lack of "Num Lock" and "Caps Lock" light may bother some, but I haven't found it to be an issue. Likewise the ten-key arrangement is a little unconventional and may slow down expert ten-key users. The arrangement is logical if non-standard.
Pros: * Full-sized keys * Low key action * Comfortable working angle * Media buttons * Clean, pleasing design
Cons: +++ These may be issues for some users +++ * No "Num Lock" or "Caps Lock" indicator lights * Non-standard 10-key arrangement * Half-height arrow keys.
Cons: doesnt work well. it will cut out everyone once in a while. you can be typing and all of a sudden nothing appears. o if you are playing a game, maybe a dota style one, and you wont cast spells and you die. or maybe you like playing shooters so when you are running around the map you suddenly stop, usually in the wide open. overall i really wish i didnt pay $40 for this
Summary: I don't know why they decided to cut down so much on certain aspects of this keyboard. For the graphic design work that I do I really need a bigger delete key, as well as "home "end" "page up" and "page down." If they had a layout similar to the thin Mac wireless keyboard I would have absolutely no complaints in the world on this beautiful little keyboard... I also wish it somehow had more "texture" (or something like that) to let you know what keys your fingers are on.
Pros: Small, looks great, decent feedback and generally works perfectly.
Cons: They definitely skimped out on a few buttons... Not a problem for your average office worker (the normal alphabet and number keys are just like your average keyboard) but it's annoying me quite a bit for my work...
