5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard for my Nexus 7!

Pros: I love this thing, my Nexus 7 is incredibly portable but I needed a physical keyboard to type. I didn't like any that came built into a case and were sized for a 7" tablet so I opted to just carry this keyboard separately. It is very comfortably sized, feels just like my normal keyboard, and was compatible out of the box except a few of the fancy buttons (but I can remap those with 3rd party apps).

The stand is firm but flexible thanks to what I presume is a fabric of malleable metal wires that hold the rubber case in shape (~15-195 degrees). I can then place my tablet on the case for the keyboard and position it in any way I like... I was even able to comfortably sit cross legged and leave the keyboard on my thighs with the rubber case as a base to stabilize it while my tablet sat on my knees and I could comfortably and efficiently type.

Cons: I don't know how I feel about triple A batteries instead of something rechargeable. Part of me would have liked not having to buy replacement batteries - but it is kind of nice to not have to plug it in. I haven't had to replace batteries yet after ~30hrs of use.

5 out of 5 eggsTerrific Bluetooth Keyboard

Pros: - Very small, thin, and light, making it highly portable
- Great design: looks nice, seems solid, rubber strip on bottom keeps it from sliding around and the battery compartment keeps it propped at an angle which makes for a nicer typing experience
- Cover is very handy: turns it off automatically when placed on the keyboard to save power, turns it back on automatically when taken off; also, works very well as a stand for a tablet or smartphone
- Works perfectly paired to my Windows 8 desktop as well as my PS3
- It's not chiclet, never been a fan of chiclet keyboards, I much prefer the key feel of these keys
- After using the keyboard for only a few minutes I was able to type at probably 70% of the speed as I do on a full-size, despite the small size of the Wedge
- Windows 8 shortcut keys are handy
- Dedicated document navigation keys (page up/down, home, end) that don't require a combination key press
- Got it for well under the MSRP
- Batteries included!

Cons: - It is small, so the keys obviously aren't full-size and they're packed close together; it's doubtful I'll ever have the same speed and accuracy as on a full-size, but that's an unavoidable trade-off the form-factor
- If you prefer the feel of chiclet keyboards, this isn't one
- The rubbery finish of the cover/stand does pick up lint and the like rather easily, though it's also easy to clean off with a can of compressed air
- A bit overpriced when not discounted

Other Thoughts: The only thing I personally would change on the design of the this keyboard is the inclusion of an Fn lock, and possibly using a built-in battery that can be charged via USB instead of using AAAs (though I like that they used AAAs instead of AAs).

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: Windows 8 fails to recognize this keyboard after a couple days.

Windows 8 fails to allow a user to remove this keyboard from devices.

Therefore this keyboard is a pretty brick.

3 out of 5 eggsLooks good until you have it in hand

Pros: Compact, has ctrl key where you want it, cover acts as a tablet stand. oh, and Works on Windows 7 as well as Mac OS X.

Cons: Key feel mushy, sometimes takes a bit to connect. A bit smaller than other bluetooth keyboards.

Other Thoughts: I like the keyboard, it works great, but there are some things that started to bother me. The picture(s) make it the keys look sturdy. The reality the keys feel mushy, kinda like older laptop keyboards. If you are running an Apple bootcamp set up and are having trouble connecting it to Windows, try removing the devices in Mac OS X first, then install on the Windows side. Should work well after that.

The CTRL key is where you would want it as a windows user( i know how hard that may be to find a decent keyboard with that), but if you want a full sized one with a number pad, the try the irocks bluetooth keyboard. The cover/tablet stand works great, but it does pick up dust and lint easily with its rubberized matte texture. The hot keys are intended for Windows 8, but the volume keys do work in Windows 7. Just keep an eye on the volume bar, since pressing the key doesn't give you any kind of noise indicator.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is really a nice keyboard!

Pros: I purchased this Bluetooth keyboard to pair up with my new Acer Iconia W700 tablet. I'm really impressed with the quality, fit and finish of this product! Microsoft has made a real effort to build and present a very high quality product. I've banged away on plastic aftermarket keyboards for 25 years and this Microsoft Wedge is a complete change from the normal plastic junk. This is completely solid, very well thought out, light in weight and a real quality piece of equipment.

I also bought the Wedge Touch Mouse and it too is perfect for my use of tossing the keyboard and mouse in my laptop bag to take with me to the office. Nice products!

Cons: None so far!

1 out of 5 eggsGreat design. All looks

Pros: Syncs pretty easy to just about anything

Cons: Works when it wants to. Power off/on didn't work most the time and had to re-sync it to get it to work once turned on. Then once turned on, if allowed to sit idle for a 5-10 minute period, rinse and repeat, and then you're lucky if it worked. Keys fell off easily and when trying to put them back on they wouldn't go back on.
RMA'd it for a refund. Shotty quality for a $20 keyboard let alone a $80 one

Other Thoughts: Had an image of a keyboard in my head that I wanted and this is exactly what it looked like and thats about all it's worth. You're paying $80 for the design and getting $0 worth of a keyboard.
