If you are in the market for a good utilitarian cordless keyboard to use, this might not be the best choice. But if you like unique, stylish computer gear, that still works well, then this makes a nice addition to your desktop. Even if you don't get a chance to show it off to your friends, you'll enjoy looking at it sitting in its charging stand, or on your desk. It must hold a pretty good charge, because I've only charged it once in the month that I've had it. So if you're thinking the charger is too cumbersome to take with you on a trip, you don't have to worry about it; you won't need it. And at about 1/2" thick, it won't take up much space in your bag.
You could hook it up using the built-in bluetooth in your computer, but unless you're starved for USB ports, the receiver is about the size of a small flash drive (unlike the previous DiNovo Desktop). It connects instantly too, so you won't spend ages trying to figure out why it's not connected.
The trackpad is a small circlular affair, positioned off to the right, so you won't be constantly hitting it like the pads on most laptops. Only southpaw mousers will suffer from this layout. And scrolling with the pad works surprisingly well.
A few drawbacks are the lack of a number pad. You don't even get the typical fn + keys to enter numbers, which could have been easily included, but wasn't. And the fn key is to the right of the spacebar, which is opposite from what most people are used to using. Other than that you get a full set of keys (except the number pad). Plus nicely placed zoom buttons, volume control, and media keys, and a nice oversized delete key.Read more ›
Yes, it's thin, nicely styled, and most of all has a wonderful feel--keys are silent, have a short throw, and have no play or sloppy feel. Every stroke feels sure and positive. It has the feel of a laptop keyboard on a desktop computer--best of both worlds.
But the layout is distinctly nonstandard, even whimsical. There is no 10-key number pad, which others have noted rather casually. I've never done a spreadsheet in my life, but I miss it even for entering phone numbers, addresses, charge card numbers, every number in everyday use is amazingly awkward without it. "Delete" has grown to double size, and the whole Home/End/Page up/Page down cluster is configured to guarantee some unwelcome surprises, for no reason that I can imagine. "Page up" is not at the top of the cluster; that space is given to the perky, promoted "End" key. Don't bother to look for the "right-click" context menu key to the right of the space bar as on every other keyboard I've ever seen in the world. It's not there or anywhere else. Its place is taken by an "Fn" key, also in a nonstandard location, which serves to reveal extra functions for F1-F12 keys, some programmable, most not, and "Scroll lock" and "Pause/B" keys, hidden secondary functions of "Insert" and "Print screen" respectively.
The software is disappointing: First it froze on installation, and required a second installation. Then its help file (the only documentation that exists--printed material is SO 20th century) turned out to be not specific to this product, but generic to Logitech products. One has to plow through all manner of irrelevant material to pick out what's relevant for this product.Read more ›
This is definitely a professional's keyboard. It's got a soft enough touch not to cause strain when you're typing for hours, but enough resistance, travel, and sudden reduction of resistance (I forget the proper term for how the key's resistance goes away once you've registered a keystroke) to allow you to type accurately. Being only 11mm tall, you don't need one of those cumbersome wrist rests -- your hands are barely above the table that you're typing on, so your posture is just naturally good. The keys are also a very good size -- I'm a touch typist (not trained; everyone becomes a touch typist if they type enough) and the keys are spaced very well to allow you to touch type without mistakes.
That the keyboard is pretty doesn't need further comment; it's also very solid. The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was that the keyboard was really solid. It may not be a cheap keyboard, but it's not made cheaply, either.
Thankfully the included receiver does bluetooth-to-usb conversion, so using the keyboard is simple plug-and-play, at least in Linux. (All of the keys work fine in Linux, there's still a bug in the mouse driver which disables the touch pad, but there will be a fix in USB mouse driver which fixes that, I believe -- a cursory google reveals at least one patch floating around.) I've never tried it in windows (I do embedded development in a Linux environment).
The battery life isn't an issue. Supposedly it can go a whole month on a single charge, but I can't fathom letting it go that long.Read more ›
