I chose this keyboard as it was small and cheap, it also offered mouse controls but as this is for a tablet so I thought they would be no use. Astonished to find that when I attached the keyboard to my ASUS tablet ( it's 3 years old now! ) , pushed the mouse stick and up popped a little pointer! Staggered! The mouse actually works, to add even more the little scroll touch pad thing also scrolls pages too! What more could you ask for! Absolutely blown away!
Only one small niggle, if you do buy this keyboard the manual is rubbish. When you put the batteries in the keyboard appears to be dead. Make sure you flip the on/off to on AND then push the little tiny button just below the on/off switch, the BlueTooth light will come on on-top and you can connect it! The manual doesn't tell you this and after 5 mins of faffing about with batteries I was about to box it up and send it back, remeber push the button on the underside of the keyboard to enable the bluetooth!!
Could have marked it down a point for not telling you to push the button but I'm so blown away by the fact that it's rare to buy a gadget these days that does more than you asked for!
Having tested it on multiple machines I have found it to be of poor design; though it feels sturdy enough the keys are too stiff to enable proper typing (that's if you have gotten used to the strange locations of some of the keys, such as the question mark, etc). The worst thing about it, though, and the reason for which I will be returning it, is that it seems to connect and disconnect at random intervals. Sometimes it will connect and work well for an hour. At other times it will disconnect after five minutes and then refuse to reconnect unless you go back to Devices and Printers, delete it, and then add it again.
I found the Rii mini to be a better keyboard and all-round a better solution than this one, only problem there was that it was really flimsy and was broken after two months Rii 2.4GHz Wireless Mini PC UK Keyboard Touchpad V2 Black. Perhaps I'll just stick with the wired kind for now - since as much as I'd like one, I'm not going to pay the fortune they require for the Logitech DiNovo Mini ;-)
The keyboard is a good compact size allowing it to be used comfortably while sitting on the sofa, but is big enough to use on a desk typing with both hands. It wouldn't replace a PC keyboard as it's too small for heavy use. The mouse is a useful addition, which only a few wireless keyboard have, although it can be tricky moving it to a precise area.
There's been a few comments about incorrect symbols appearing when a key is pressed, this will only happen if you don't have a UK keyboard or your PC isn't set to UK. I initially received a German keyboard but promptly returned it for a full refund. I repurchased again from Dealstation and got the correct UK keyboard which has the correct symbols including the £ symbol on the number 4 key.
I'm hoping the keyboard works with my Raspberry Pi when it arrives!
The keys are a good size - I can certainly use my fingers rather than thumbs, but I struggle to touch type quickly mainly due to the two limitations brought about by the keyboard being so compact. Firstly, the keys are - as the image shows - laid out in a strict grid formation, I therefore accidentally press the V key when I expect the C to be there. I think with familiarity this will go away, though, although I do use a conventional keyboard the rest of the time... More bothersome isn't so much that fairly commonly used punctuation marks like ? ' and " require the Fn key to be pressed, in conjunction with H B and G, than the fact that they're marked on the keys in a blue colour that's really hard to make out in low light.
On the upside, though, the volume control and start/fwd/bck function keys work, which is quite cool.
Oh and one more thing - but this is more of an issue with iOS applications - most of them make the on-screen disappear when the bluetooth keyboard is in use, but the majority don't expand to fill the empty space, which is a bit of a waste. It's possible, because Mail does it - sloppy coding, I guess..
