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
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 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.
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.
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.
