4 out of 5 eggsGreat travel keyboard

Pros: Item works as billed. It's spill proof and can be folded/rolled for compact storage and easy packing when cargo space is limited. When you are dealing with limited storage space, this product gets the job done.

Cons: As others say, it takes time to get used to this type of keyboard. The difference between how this works from a normal keyboard will slow your typing speed, but I hope some day this issue is resolved. While having the comfort of a normal sized keyboard, I certainly would not want to use it as my "daily driver."

Other Thoughts: I give this product 4 eggs because it does what it is designed to do...a keyboard that is easily packed and is plug and play. I've used it in conjunction with a travel mouse on my netbook when on the road, and it is a vast improvement over the tiny keyboard on the netbook. Its design trades performance for portability, but it's a fair deal. Don't like that? Get a cheap regular keyboard and find a way to get it into your luggage.

2 out of 5 eggsAbsolute Frustration

Pros: On the positive side, this keyboard is exactly as advertised. it's flexible, made entirely of rubber and is completely spill-proof.

Cons: This is literally the most frustrating keyboard I have ever used. One reviewer said that the keys were "touchy". However, it's quite the contrary. You absolutely have to slam down on the keys to get them to respond. On an average keyboard, I type an average of 90 words per minute. On this piece of junk, I can type around 35 words per minute; with enough typos to float a boat.

Needless to say, I'm junking this thing and buying a real keyboard for less. Save your money!

Other Thoughts: Prompt reliable service from newegg as always

4 out of 5 eggsFoldable Mini Keyboard

Pros: Light,thin profile,flexible, fancy looking gadget on your desk. I got the keyboard delivered to my office this afternoon. It was a beauty to look at right out of the box. i had around 10 people come to my desk to investigate this new device in the 1st 10 mins of opening the box. Keys are super sensitive. Since they are made of rubber, it lacks the smooth feel of a normal keyboard. Not a bad thing, but worth a note. I have Vista 64 bit on my laptop and the keyboard was just plug and play. no hazels what so ever. It also comes with a USB to PS2 adapter which is a neat thing.

Cons: Not really a con but worth nothing.
1) The keyboard is VERY flexible. Hence need a very hard but not necessarily a flat surface. i tested by placing it on small scribble pad over my lap and it worked OK. Not perfect though. For that you really need the flat surface of your desk.
2) There are few keys missing. Such as Home, End, Left Ctrl, Page UP and Down, Fn (if you plan to use this with a Laptop).
3) The top membrane is very flexible and wobbly. It feels like there is a small cushion of air in between this layer and the flexible circuit base . It gets a little getting used to as most of us are used to sturdy keys on sold platforms.

Other Thoughts: This is my very 1st order with Newegg. The shipping was lighting fast. I placed the order at around 3 PM on Monday and they had the item delivered to me by 11 AM the very next day. If you are new to Newegg like me, and are interested in this product, do not hesitate. You know you want it. Go ahead and get this cool little gadget. You'll love it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Folding keyboard and won't break if dropped, how can you lose!

Cons: No maybe a bit expensive next to another competitors site but with Newegg's fast shipping it is worth it.

Other Thoughts: I got this for a backup/build keyboard as most people have wireless KBs these days and DOS and some BIOS doesn't like some wireless/bluetooth keyboards.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't get it..........

Pros: Ok, its great for when you have kids around that always have a juice box or some soda in a glass or something..........COMPLETELY liquid proof. Its easy to store, and is kid proof, so if you're kids want to take the keyboard and bend it up and throw it or whatever, its fine.

Cons: The sensitivy of the keys are very high, the normal weight of you're hand will press the keys, took me about a week and a half to get used to it.

Other Thoughts: Its ok, but not the best water-proof keyboard that i've used.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: It's compact and foldable just like it says in the title. It rolls up nice and fits in my laptop bag consuming very little space. Made fairly well to my surprise.

Cons: Very, very difficult to type with. Keys are bendy and rubbery, you have to push straight down on the key, but if you put your fingers on the homekeys (like i was trained to do in Catholic School and have never since stopped out of fear of a nun jumping out of my closet and smacking my knuckles with a ruler) but anyways, if your fingers are on the homekeys and you move to type, you have to press the key straight down and with more effort that a regular keyboard. I can probably adapt to it, but got rather frustrated with it and just gave up on it.

Where it will help me is in troubleshooting, nice to have a spare keyboard around to eliminate the keyboard being good/bad and i won't have to carry a full one around.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was lightning fast as usual. If i ever won the lottery i would just sign the check over to them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keboard

Pros: I really love this new keyboard. Its nothing that I have ever tried before. I have just received it and I actually did spill my soda all over it the first day. It was so easy to clean. Works great and I love how the keys feel. Roll it up for quick and easy storage. The main reason why I purchased this keyboad was for my Samsung Q1. Now, I use it for both my pc and my Q1. A must buy for on the go. It also looks cool especially when you are around people. I already was asked where I got it when I was at my local Starbucks. The guy said it looked like something a hacker would use. LOL!!! Go fig.

Cons: Well, maybe a couple. There really is no number pad. Im already getting used to the numbers on top. Not really a big thing. Newegg does have the same keyboard with a number pad, but I chose this one because it was smaller. The other thing, you kind of have to press a little more firm, but it still reads the key press like it should. I did try on a non flat surface and it did read most of my key presses, but you do need a flat surface none the less. A little getting used to, but not a problem at all.

Other Thoughts: All in all, I love it. It does what its supposed to do. I did try to find it at my local electronic stores, but they did not carry this type of keyboard. So, thanks Newegg. A great buy, a great price, and a great choice for a "on the go" keyboard.
