5 out of 5 eggsIf ninjas had keyboards

Pros: Maintains 6 pairings. Runs on plain old AAAs. Keys feel like they're in the right places (except tilde). Tactile response is quite comfortable for this size of key. Recessed ON/OFF switch on the underside.

Cons: None I can think of

Other Thoughts: Mine has pairings to three desktops (via Bluetooth dongles - they're cheap!), an EeePC netvertible, and an Archos 32 Android tablet. Switching is quick (you just use Fn+1 through Fn+6 after you've set up the pairings). My Fn+3 is paired to the PC in the conference room at work so I don't have to ask someone to pass the official keyboard.

Works well with the Android device, except that in a terminal emulator, Ctrl and Esc are funny and the angle brackets don't work. But those are not the keyboard's fault, it has to do with the mapping Android imposes on any external keyboard.

I keep this keyboard in my pants pocket. It just barely fits; your pants may vary. I may find a holster for it. Multiple pairings make this keyboard very useful to keep close at hand all day.

3 out of 5 eggsNot for BlackBerry

Pros: Solid construction, responsive keys, extremely cute. (The girls say "Awww, lookit!")

Cons: Instructions not very well written.

Other Thoughts: This failed to work with a BlackBerry Curve 9330 even though the pairing was successful. Turns out that the Curve doesn't support HID devices, or at least not this one. Not really the fault of the keyboard though, so I gave it a "middle of the road" score. It did work with a MacBook Pro, however, and worked pretty darn good.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Paired, Easy Fast Switching

Pros: Fast Switching, Easy to paired, works with PC, iPhone, iPad, PS/3, Samsung Galaxy (Android 2.2)

Cons: Keyboard size is a bit small but understandable is for the mobility design, is just like any other new keyboards, need sometime to get used to it.

Other Thoughts: I got this keyboard for my ipad and Galaxy, the fast switching feature are really helpful for me to jump between the device, the key size after few hour using I can get it on hand and type faster then before. Over all Zippy BT-500 is a great buy for me, if you have multi Bluetooth device like me, you will love the keyboard.

3 out of 5 eggsGets thejob done, but has room for improvement.

Pros: Compact, simple to setup, no connectivity issues so far.

Cons: No indicator lights for caps-lock or num-lock. Space bar doesn't respond if pressed off center. Occasionally the space bar generates two space when only pressed once (didn't correct those errors in the review to show frequency of occurrence).

Other Thoughts: I got this keyboard to use with an HTPC so I can leave it on the coffee table without taking up too much space. It works OK for the most part, with the exception of the space issues mentioned in the "Cons" section. The space bar issues are REALLY annoying as I usually have to correct at least one missing space or duplicate space per sentence. The spacebar's lack of response when pressed on it's left and right edges makes it's usage quite annoying. I'll probably end up switching back to a regular wireless keyboard until I can find a more reliable solution.

-1 star for the lack of indicator lights, -1 star for the incredibly annoying issues with the space bar.

5 out of 5 eggsZIPPY BT-500

Pros: Easy to connect, feels solid, long battery life, responsive keys.

Cons: a little heavy

Other Thoughts: I use this keyboard to connect to a laptop and my iPhone. The built in BlueTooth allows me to switch between the devices with the press of two keys. Setup was quick and easy. The keyboard feels solid, but a bit heavy. The keys are smooth and responsive.
