Acceptable, better for devices with HID settings

 

Decent reliable keyboard, however it's natural rapid type delay is pretty short, on an android device, expect to mmmmmmmmake a couple errors like that. However great remote when I want to sit back from laptop and type.

Love the feel

 

Great keyboard, allowed me to revamp my workspace. I connect it to my laptop which I can now keep in the keyboard drawer of my computer table, which in turn, is hooked onto a monitor. Gives me space to use the table surface to read my textbooks/notes....

Does not work with Android

 

Doesn't work with Android Gingerbread. Perhaps this device only supports Bluetooth HID and not SPP. Would have been nice if Targus actually provided this information.

Perfect but

 

For windows, is difficult or impossible to change the FN by CTRL key. But for Neuxs 7 is a perfect combination. I think it is a good keyboard.

Delete and Backspace key switched.

 

Great keyboard, but don't try to backspace. You will hit the forward delete key instead. It is VERY frustrating. I've looked for remapping software, but can't find it. It's just darn hard to relearn what is so automatic on all other keyboards.

delete and backspace key are not in right position

Overall, this is a great travel bluetooth keyboard. Sure, it doesn't come with a fancy sleeve or accessories, but it's one of the most affordable name brand ones. My only gripe about this thing is the positioning of the Delete and Backspace keys. The...
