exceeded expectations and even my 90 year old grandma could get it up and running

EASE OF SETUP:
My first surprise in using the keyboard is that it required zero instructions, unlike any other computer gadget I've ever seen. The batteries are in, you just pull the tab over them (as it says to do on the tab)...
Then you plug in the tiny wireless plug to the slot it shows you to on the computer or laptop. Which was a bit obvious, but should you not recognize where it goes it comes with photos of where to put it on the back of your computer or on the side of your laptop.
That's it. No reading needed. Look at the picture for a second and you know what to do and how to get it going.
It is soo much more quiet than my previous keyboard which transmittled a constant "clackaty clack clack" at an annoying rate since I type uber fast. This makes almost no sound when I type, yet the keys are comfortable and easy to to use.
WORKS ON ALL COMPUTERS:
Works with a notebook computer or a desktop one and since it's lightweight I can travel with it with my laptop for more comfortable typing and I can also easily switch from one computer to another by simply reinserting the wireless tab.
It's sleek and modern looking...with a light grey edging and black face.
You can easily keep your batteries lasting far longer by simply sliding the button at the top to "off" when not in use. It holds AAA batteries.
This is, afterall, why we want a wireless keyboard, right? No more tangles under my desk, no more cord getting unplugged if I tug the keyboard a bit, cleaner look on the desk, you can put it away in a drawer if you want a really clean desktop or at a home desk when company is coming...just put your computer screen on a pretty fish tank screen saver, throw this in a drawer, and you've just changed a desk area into something rather attractive.
It's the quietest keyboard I've used and very comfortable and I am a good test pilot for it because I type over 100wpm and sometimes I trip up keyboards or email programs...this didn't miss a beat. It handles well. I'd get one again if I ever break it or wear it out!
Wish it had a low battery light to let me know when they are getting low, but I keep them on hand and use rechargeables so it's not a huge thing for me. It's been months and I never turn it off and it's going strong. Someone in my comments said it lasts 2 years without replacing them...I'll have to wait and see on that.
