ok...maybe

 

would be nice if the function and control keys were swapped but will get used to it. not sure why there two back slash keys, ones to the left of the space bar, its a blank key in the pic, would be nice if the space bar was a bit longer there.

its very small, it's 11 and 1/4 wide, 5 3/8 deep. looks and feels well built, metal bottom, keys have a good action. i would be and will be fine using this all the time

you get what you pay for?

 

My H.P. laptop came up with ''ghost keys'' (a well-documented problem in this model) that developed after it was out of warranty. To keep going until I could buy a new laptop I decided to buy an external keyboard. The store didn't have the keyboard I...

What's not to like?

 

using it as an input device on my Sony Media Streamer and works perfect and looks good in a confined area. Would never use it as a mainstream keyboard due to mini constraints so cant figure out what all the bi***in's about.

Compact, stylish, good key feel

none
