I purchased this keyboard to use with a certain fruit inspired smart phone, and I have found that this is a nifty keyboard. The folding does make it more portable than its non-folding competition. Additionally, the full-size character buttons make typing very easy, and the keys are responsive.

Also, setup is a breeze: no special drivers needed (assuming your bluetooth adapter is setup correctly), and pairing is idiot proof.

I only have three gripes: the keyboard uses two AAA alkalines. I'd much rather a device like this use a Li-ion battery, and for the price, the omission is inexcusable.

Also, the folding action is a bit touchy. I'd almost say it's cheap. It's not a huge problem, but if you're not careful, I can see how it would be easy to break the plastic spine that holds the two ends of the keyboard together. Again, the price of the device makes this issue inexcusable

Finally, the clips that hold the two halves the keyboard together when it's closed might as well not be there. If you jostle the keyboard even a little bit while it's folded, the clips un-clip. Should I bother adding that this device is too expensive for the manufacturer to have let this slide?

In conclusion, I would say that the keyboard is definitely a very functional and useful keyboard. However, for some of the construction flaws related to the folding gimmick, this device is definitely overpriced.

I purchased this keyboard specifically for use with my iPad. At the time I bought it, it was only one of a handful of Bluetooth keyboards designed to be portable/foldable. The best compliment I can give it is that it's adequate, but it certainly is not great and is not worth the price.

First, the plusses:

- Full sized keys with number pad
- Built-in volume control buttons, including mute
- Easy to pair via Bluetooth
- A true "Mac" keyboard with command button and option button
- Uses 2 AAA batteries for power, which means you don't have to worry about charging it when it gets low.
- Typing experience is comparable to most laptop keyboards. Comfortable but won't win any awards.
- Seems to have good range.

Now, the negatives:

- Unnecessarily large. Includes not only a full number pad, arrow keys, page up/down, etc. It also has an extended area on the left of the keyboard that seems to be just wasted space. They could have reduced the device width by about 40-50% had they removed these two features alone. They probably should offer a model with number pad and another without. As it is, when folded in half, it's still as long as my iPad is tall as well as being more than half as wide and a good bit thicker. Eliminates a lot of the portability.
- Can only pair with one device at a time. Not a big deal for me, but might be for some people.
- Flimsy construction. You really feel like you have to be gentle with this, even more so than with the iPad.
- Latching mechanism is unreliable. Often pops open on its own for no real reason except that the hooks that lock the latch are poorly designed
- Power button is poorly placed. When folded in half, the power button sticks out like a sore thumb.

I have a mac and this folding keyboard is a perfect travel accessory. It's lightweight and works just like a regular keyboard. I don't have issues with the bluetooth. The only downside is I left it on once and it burned up the batteries. If you turn if off when not in use they last quite a long time. I can't imagine not having one. I would recommend it for the Mac, I can't speak for the pc.

Why on earth would you pay for Matias' Windows version of this I don't know. As soon as I got it, I paired it with my Samsung Note 2 and then my Windows 7 PC without even a hiccup! And yes, I am using it to write this review. The only things of real note for Windows users are that the "command" key is the "Windows" key, and the "option" key is the "Alt" key. What a great deal this thing is...

I wanted to use this keyboard with more than one device, pairing as needed. The first inconvenience is the pairing button is one of those that you need to use a pen or toothpick to press, or paper clip. Those kind of buttons are not meant to use routinely and are very inconvenient, especially since the power button is positioned so you do not accidentally push it so why not make the pairing button easier to use while not being in the way?

I was able to pair this back and forth about 10 times, and now the pairing button doesn't do anything no matter how long I push it in or what I use. I can push harder with a pin or try different pokers but that would only break it more. Luckily the pairing button broke with the keyboard paired with my computer I actually wanted to use it with. Another issue is the folding keyboard doesn't seem to be stay flat if in your lap because it folds, but that could be my fault not knowing how to lock it but didn't see how to make it lock in the open position.

All that said it works great once paired and if you have a flat surface to use it on.
