I hate the media controls. They are touch sensitive so you never know if you are pressing them correctly. They rarely respond and overall simply a dumb idea. The keys are all in the wrong place for me. The delete key is tiny and on the number row on top and nexxxxt to the insert key. The arrow keys are again tiny and noot separated from the otttttter keys. The home/end/pg up/pg dooown are at the top of the number pad in a line and again vreeeey tiny.
Nowww then, you noticee all the extra eystrokes and misssng letteres and space in this review? Do I need to explain the biggest problem here? I left in the extra strokes that are frequent. This doees not account for the number of time the keys do not respond. I have moved the dongle and it seemed to help for a bit but apparently it is not enough. I am a Graphic Designer. Speed, efficiency and complete control of the keyboard is essential.
Generally I love HP. This one however made me sad... ;(
The cons - for a compact keyboard this thing is fairly big. Its quite larger than other keyboards I have of this style. It is because of the sides (either side of the keys) and the NON detachable part below the the keys (below space bar). Also, this has a fairly drastic curve to the underside and will not lay flat on your desk. My best guess is this keyboard was meant for a media center TV or somethings like that. The sides are great to hold on to and the curve actually helps when its on your legs. Too bad this isn't why I bought the keyboard.
My exp. - I have been addicted to scissor style keyboards for around 16 yrs and have owned many. Once you have typed on a good keyboard, typing on plunger style keyboards feels like you were thrown back into the eighties for a bad joke. If you don't mind the interesting shape of this keyboard then give it a try, its a very reasonable price.
However, the software and connectivity on this leaves a little to be desired. The function keys are not all that useful, and the customization features are also a little limited. Also, in the few months that I've had it, the wireless connection occasionally needs to be reset. Once, it simply stopped responding and would not recognize any inputs including the sleep button. Several other times, the keyboard got caught on a particular letter or button (particularly distressing was the time it got stuck on the delete key), and kept repeating that button until the connection was reset (by removing the USB in some cases, or by putting the keyboard to sleep in other cases). It doesn't happen that often, (especially considering how often I actually use it) and the issue is easily resolved when it does, but a little irritating and unexpected when it happens.
Overall, it's a very nice looking keyboard that works well a large majority of the time. However, it's not that versatile in functionality (particularly in reference to the software it comes with) and occasionally has unpredictable connectivity issues.
It needs an indicator light on the keyboard itself to tell you when caps lock is on; it relies on a pop-up balloon from the icon tray that quickly disappears.
I ordered this keyboard since it was one of the few I found that had the same style keys as my HP Pavilion laptop, and also because it had media keys.
While the keys did turn out to be like my laptops and nice at that, the media keys are pretty unresponsive and the way the volume strip is set up is just weird.
The real problem however is the case of the keyboard ( or whatever you would want to call it ) it's flimsy to say the least, and flexes when used and the 'adjustable stand' thing at the back is horrible, it's thin, bendy and doesn't add any real support.
The footing on the keyboard is awful too, it would move a bit when I typed even though my desk isn't even slick at all.
Also, if you intend to do anything that requires the arrow keys, then don't get this keyboard.
I thought it would be fine they seem large enough but they're still a pain to use.
I can't comment on the reception since the keyboard was only two feet away from my desktop, but I didn't notice any dropped keys.
So I would not recommend this keyboard, I let looks and such get the best of me when I bought it and now I regret that.
If you're interested the closest I have been able to find for around the same price that is like a laptopkeyboard is the HP Wireless Elite Keyboard V2 which looks a lot more stable than the HP Ultrathin keyboard.

It turns out the palm rest is too narrow for hands. It should be wider or nothing. Currently, the palm rest plays nothing. Other functions work good.Published on July 19, 2012 by Pham Hai Trieu
