works great nice and slim


great slim bluetooth keyboard ; linked it and automatically drivers were instlaled

slight delay when it hasn't been used for about 5 minutes (power saving) definitely not for gaming (that's what my sidewinder is for :P) ; could be too small for people with bigger hands and fingers

Highly Recommend


I use this with my ASUS motherboard that has built-in Bluetooth. It stays paired and responds well. I like the small size and the feel of the keys. Also have the Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse.

Compact and wireless


Didn't work with my Android phone. Also, due to bluetooth only, it's not recognized by the bios, so you'll have to use another keyboard to setup a new computer. I'd like an optional USB port/cable for that purpose.

Compact ; Quiet (except for the space key) ; Ergonomic

Limited tilt range
