4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great, Lasts a Long Time

Pros: I've owned this keyboard and keypad over a year now with no problems; it works every time. I had no problem linking it up to my laptop. Installation was easy. I like that the keyboard is small and the keypad is separate. The small rubber feet keep it in place and it doesn't slide around on the desk. I use the keyboard every day and battery life is very good. I think I've changed batteries twice but not because I needed to. I use the keypad mostly for ham radio RTTY contesting and it's great to push the keyboard aside and use just the small keypad by itself. I may buy another one in case they stop selling these. I have really enjoyed using this keyboard and keypad.

Cons: It does go to sleep a little too quickly for me (deduct one egg). Once you get used to it, you know just to hit a key and wait a few seconds, then type. I haven't timed it but it seems just a few minutes of idle time before it goes to sleep. I would have preferred it just stay awake longer or all that time when being used and just switch it off when not used. But that would probably eat batteries. I have not had any problems waking it up. I press a key, if the keyboard is asleep, I count to 3 and then start typing.

Other Thoughts: Until you get used to it, the curved keyboard forces you to concentrate on putting your hands closer together to ensure your fingers are on the correct keys. It does have raised markings on the F and J keys so you can feel your way back to the correct position for your index fingers. Once you get used to it, it's not an issue.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Feel but not perfect for a Mac

Pros: Nice feel

Cons: If you leave the keyboard alone for 15 min or so it disconnects and it takes about 10 to 20 second to reconnect. Also the bluetooth name for the keyboard and number pad are the same so it make it a pain to degug issues.

Other Thoughts: If waiting for the keyboard to reconnect is not an issue then this is an excellent product, otherwise not.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: love the size, look and feel of the keyboard, not sure when I had to change the batteries out

Cons: if you need into BIO's or anything b4 into Windows your out of luck, I have and old USB keyboard tucked out of the way for that

Other Thoughts: I miss the number pad more than I thought I would, had to buy a separate numpad, I'm hoping my next motherboard with build in blue tooth will let me use the keyboard during reboot

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Great

Pros: Easy on the hands. Easy to Type. Great having a separate Number pad. Great design. Incredibly thin.

Cons: Blue Tooth auto shut off. There is a big lag when it comes back on.

Other Thoughts: This was so close to becoming my full time keyboard. I work about 12+ hours a day on the pc and need a lot from my keyboard. It had a good feel to the keys and was easy to type on. It took a little while to get use to the ergo design but after a few hours I liked it better than the old design. It's thin and easy to type on. I also switch my mouse hand often and love that you can switch the number pad to either side. The biggest drawback was the Bluetooth. If you don't type for a minute or so the Bluetooth shuts down and you can type a few words before it registers on the screen. That was the deal breaker for me. If this was 2.4 instead of Bluetooth It would of not returned it. If you can deal with the lag time you will have a very cool keyboard. I hope Microsoft makes the same keyboard with 2.4 or fixes the auto shut off issues.

5 out of 5 eggsMS 6000 Bluetooth Keyboard

Pros: The curve of this board makes for long-session (3-4 hours) comfortable typing.
The keys are short-travel and solid, between a laptop and a standard keyboard, more like a laptop but with a bit more travel.
Good design and high-quality build; the keys offer just enough resistance without being stiff at all.
Light weight but stable on my desktop.

Cons: My gripe's not really about the board. My mini ITX build doesn't have a Bluetooth-enabled motherboard, so I use a Cirago USB Bluetooth dongle. I run Ubuntu 11.4 and can't get to the BIOS with this keyboard as the boot sequence doesn't recognize the dongle soon enough for me to key in. When I need to work in the BIOS, I have to go downstairs and borrow my wife's keyboard as the Apple board for my MacBook doesn't have the delete key.

The white bottom doesn't do a lot for me.

Other Thoughts: I write fiction and this is a great board for flowing lines out of my head and onto the page without effort and without having to stop fairly often to shake the stiffness out of my wrists. The ergonomics are just right, so I can stay in the flow for longer periods of time than with any other board I've used. I got my first computer in the early 1980s and have been building my own since the 1990s, so I've used a whole lot of "ergonomic" keyboards in that time. This is already my favorite, easy.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed after one year

Pros: You have two pieces of bluetooth hardware in one package

Cons: It sleeps in a short period of inactivity and it needs a few seconds to wake up. Not suitable for gaming at all.

It failed after about one year. The low battery light is always on even for the numpad I didn't use it for months.

Other Thoughts: I didn't think Microsoft branded hardware would fail that easily.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems OK for games with updated BT drivers

Pros: Sleek, ergonomic design. Great feel and travel to the keys. Excellent touch typing. Overall build quality seems high. Layout for the most part is good, and includes volume/mute buttons. Comes with a handy keypad, although I rarely use it. Responsive enough for games after updating Bluetooth drivers. (See Other Thoughts)

Cons: The biggest con with this keyboard is the layout of the three keys on the far right side. Home and End are shared by PgUp and PgDn, and are accessed by simultaneously pressing the Fn key. I've been using strictly laptop-sized keyboards for years, and this is the only one I've seen like this. Absolutely could have been avoided. I use Home and End more frequently than PgUp/PgDn since I have a scroll wheel on the mouse. I will see if I can find a registry hack to change the mapping of those keys.

There are no lights on the keyboard to indicate Caps Lock or Num Lock status. I'm sure this was done to save battery life, but still, it's something you should be aware of before purchasing.

No feet to tilt up the keyboard. I've always tilted my keyboards with the rear feet, but after a few minutes of using this one I got used to it not being tilted. Non-issue.

I'm knocking off one egg for the Home/End key layout and the lack of status lights.

Other Thoughts: This is my primary keyboard on my desktop PC. When I first tried it, I had problems with keyboard lag in games, so I set it aside. By keyboard lag, I mean I would press a key, and it would register in the game a full second later, or more. The lag time would actually grow steadily over time to two seconds, three seconds, etc. However after a while I decided to try and get it working properly again. I updated the Broadcom Bluetooth drivers and that seemed to do the trick. The keyboard does not have any noticeable lag to it at all now. It does go to sleep on its own if you don't use it for a few minutes, but that is to be expected. This has not caused any problems for me, nor have I had it go to sleep on me while I was using it. It does mean, however, that I can't press a key on the keyboard to wake the PC like I am used to doing. No big deal though, I just press a mouse button instead now.

Overall, I am very happy with this keyboard. Got it from a deal-a-day site for three sawbucks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat feel, portable, perfect for iPad

Pros: It's got a good feel, nice and light but doesn't feel cheap. The ergonomic curve, although it looks minor, makes a big difference in comfort. The battery life is super, and I have no troubles connecting with my iPad and writing for extended periods.

Cons: The "home" and "end" keys are subset to function keys, but that's understandable given the small size.

Other Thoughts: Like all bluetooth devices it has an auto-shutoff after a while; others complain that it's too often, but it doesn't bother me.

The numpad comes separate with its own cute little carry bag, but I've never used it so I can't comment on it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobile Keyboard

Pros: Excellent mobile keyboard. I travel with this keyboard and whether I use just he 10-key or both I can mix and match for my particular needs at the time. I often connect my laptop to a separate, larger monitor at customer's sites and the size, feel, and lack of dongle for this keyboard combo is excellent.

Cons: The 10-key goes to sleep too soon. I would gladly run through batteries 3x faster if it meant better response. The Ins key requires a Fn press which, for those of us in heavy VMWare usage, can be a little annoying. In the end, the 10-key sleep time is the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: Very nice feel; the separate number pad is nice.

Cons: Not only does it take 10-30 seconds to "wake up" after the first keypress, but it randomly goes back to sleep - even in the middle of typing a sentence! Then you have to wait for it to wake up again.
