Expert Review

 

Reasonably thin and light Bluetooth keyboard, Roomier than typical portable Bluetooth keyboards, Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts for touch actions

Flat, tightly packed keys require accurate keystrokes, Chassis attracts fingerprints, dust, Function and arrow keys are too small

Still, if your fingers crave the extra breathing room, the Microsoft Sculpt Mobile Keyboard might do the trick. Plus, at $49.99 list (and discounted from that at quite a few online sellers when we wrote this), it’s a reasonable value, too.

Review: Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000

 

Compact design; Great build quality; Good operational range; Easy to set up.

Takes time to get used to; Incompatible with Android 2.3 devices.

The Mobile Keyboard 5000 is a good piece of hardware. It plays nice with most Bluetooth devices, and is easy to carry. Having said that, the keyboard's arc-shaped design adds an unnecessary learning curve for users. However, if you can live with that,...

Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 review

 

Microsoft's Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 is a visually appealing device. It has a slightly curved design that works in its favour.

If you are out in the market looking for a wireless keyboard for home-use, Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 is a decent option, but if you want a portable keyboard for your new tablet, you might find it a bit large.

Not sure about this.....

 

Overall, this is a great portable keyboard with basic features like a volume control and not much else. it is small and light. I would like to see how this would work out if I had one that lasted for more than a day so we shall have to see.

I like the overall size and shape of this keyboard, it is curved like my last keyboard which I loved. It is very light and thin, very portable. I have only had it for one day so I am not sure about battery life and all that nonsense. which leads me to...

I have only one negative thing to say about this keyboard. I have only had this in my possession for less than 24 hours and it already does not work. that is, the Z, X,C, V, F,R and T keys no longer work and I am now going to have to RMA this thing. I...
