This review is from: Rapoo E9070 White USB RF Wireless Slim Keyboard
Pros: The keyboard layout and feel is very similar to a laptop keyboard. It's easy to type on with light touch, while being small and light weight. The brushed aluminum backing gives it a sturdy feel under your finger tips and aesthetically, makes a nice addition to your desktop.
I really like that the media controls require an "FN" keystroke to use, because it helps cut down on the size of the keyboard without much excess buttons, saving you some desktop real estate.
I personally find the low profile of the keyboard easy to type on for long periods of time, the experience is almost identical to using a laptop keyboard, which I personally find more comfortable for word processing, than most desktop keyboards as they lack the proper wrist support.
Both the black and white versions are good looking keyboards if you're wanting something that isn't bulky and easy to navigate around while remaining aesthetically pleasing.
Over all, the Rapoo E9070 for the price, is a good buy.
Cons: The delete button is a bit small and high up/out of the way, but if you get into the habit of using short keys, like in Adobe Photoshop, holding shift isn't an extra burden when using the number pad's larger delete button. The arrow keys are a bit small, so this may be the ideal keyboard for word processing, but playing games is probably another story.
Another small thing that can be noticeable, is that the rubberized grips at the base of the keyboard don't tend to grip on more smooth/glossy surfaces. The feet at the top of the keyboard are plastic so don't really help the sliding situation. It doesn't happen too often, but it sometimes can be a little annoying when writing long documents. Can be an easy fix if it really bothers you.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I haven't had this keyboard for too long, but I've just built a new computer, and was looking for something to save as much desktop space as possible since I do graphic design, and run dual monitors, one of which is a drawing tablet and requires ample desktop space. I was looking for something light weight, wireless, small, easy to type on since I do a lot of web programming, all the while looking good. I feel I've got all of those things with this keyboard, so over all I'm quite pleased and would recommend it to anyone who may be doing a lot of word processing.READ FULL REVIEW
