I needed some extra desk space and this looked like the perfect solution. This is an very good keyboard, especially in such a compact size. It is excellent quality (although the number keypad does not sit flat) and positive and quiet whilst typing.
However, I really struggled with the delay when starting to type, and the fact that sometimes it did not seem to wake up at all if left for any period of time. I also had the additional problem that my computer requires a password at boot-up, and at this point bluetooth is not loaded so I had to use another keyboard at switch on.
There are also a few regularly used keys that need the Fn key, e.g. PgUp, PgDn, Home, End etc. and so this required some difficult multi-key actions to navigate around some applications.
I returned the item and swapped for the Arc keyboard, which is not as nice to type with but does not have the limitations mentioned above

I bought this as a replacement for a Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave - with Mouse which was starting to show it's age after a couple of years. This keyboard is not only easier to type on, it's also got a better curve to it, more reliable (or at least so far, after 2 months).

It's just big enough to be a permanent keyboard without causing any wrist strain, has very light keys which allows for quick typing, and doesn't have loads of extra functions that you don't really need.

All round a great little keyboard.

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.

Bluetooth has many variables that cause problems, as with any wireless system, so I don't expect perfection.

The curved keyboard takes a little getting used to, but after one day, it wasn't a problem, and I actually enjoy typing on it now.

The number keypad is not worth using, in my opinion.

After a one week of use, I can say I'm happy with it overall.

Got this keyboard today, together with a Belkin 4.0 Bluetooth adaptor, which I've set on a 3.0 USB slot on my desktop. Unlike some comments from other users, I do not experience any delay when typing, so I suppose the quality of the receiver is very important. Set-up was effortless and quality of the keys and layout is very good. What I like the most is the separate num pad which one could position on the desk to their liking. If not used for few minutes, both devices go into sleep mode and it takes few seconds to wake them, which some may find a bit irritating. If there were some lights for this sleep mode and also for the caps lock and the num lock, this set would be perfect. In general I would strongly recommend the purchase of this item, if you're in need of a good everyday keyboard.

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.

The keys on my old Logitech DiNovo feel nicer to type on than this Microsoft one. On the other hand this one is not bad - it is much better than the cheapo Dell keyboard that came with the PC or a low end Logitech Wireless keyboard. There are better but this is not bad to type on and quite acceptable.

There is a slightly disconcerting delay if you haven't used the keyboard for a few minutes then start typing again. I suspect it goes into a power down mode to save battery power and needs to wake up before responding again. This doesn't happen on my old Logitech wireless keyboard - on the other hand it had 6 AA batteries and this has two. So its a tradeoff - lag against low power. Its a minor nuisance but something you get used to.

Overall, if your not bothered about the price and like multimedia features I'd go for the new diNovo otherwise this is a good compromise choice.

I bought this a couple of years ago and worked very well with an older computer I was using at the time, the split design is perfect for use with a graphics tablet, where a conventional keyboard is just too bulky and gets in the way. I have had problems using this with more modern computers that I purchased since chiefly because Bluetooth specifications on these are more advanced for handling a wide range of applications such as synching information with mobile phones etc. They also have power management built into them, which even when switched off, doesn't stop this keyboard from going to sleep after very short intervals. Another reason for this is both the keyboard and number pad have very low power consumption; the main keyboard only uses two treble A batteries, while the number pad only uses one. I have made this work very reliably without it going to sleep at all when partnered with an old Bluetooth dongle I had lying around which came with a Microsoft Bluetooth desktop set. Sadly in order for that combination to work meant disabling the highly sophisticated Bluetooth radio that's built in and by doing so also sacrifices the advanced functionality it offers.

This keyboard is best for computers that do not have inbuilt Bluetooth and are partnered with very basic Bluetooth radio dongles, when used in that way it works like a charm.
