Small works well.

Consumer review (

Small, thin, and somewhat stylish


It's small! This is a laptop-style keyboard in a somewhat stylish case.

If you don't like small keyboards or have problems typing on laptops, then this isn't the keyboard for you.

Works Great.

The power button is a nice feature, just don't bump it and shut down your system accidentally.

Great for saving space!


Very small, PS/2 and USB.

The control key is fairly small, but it is easy to get used to.

Consumer review (

High quality product for the price.


It is definatly small and compact.

Not really a con because it is expected, but I kept hitting the up arrow instead of right shift because the shift key is smaller so i had to get used to hitting it differently.
