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.

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 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.

I should warn you that I am very picky about keyboards. I'd even go so far as to say I'm a keyboard geek. The keyboard in use on my PC is an IBM Model M from 1984 that has been modified to work with USB. The Model M has the clicky sound, the perfectly balanced spring-back and the tactile feel that makes typing faster and more effecient. I'm a writer but I don't always want to carry around a laptop AND a five-pound keyboard. I tell you about this vintage keyboard as a reference to my review here.

I'm not completely living in the past and I LOVE my iPad for many, many tasks, but not for writing. But it's so lovable and so portable that I wanted to write on it too. The Matias folding bluetooth is very usable. It's no IBM but it has plenty of functions to use with an iPad. There are keys to adjust the volume, screen brightness, a HOME key, a search key that willl take you directly to iPad search (the screen to the left of your first home screen). Since it is full size, it's almost as comfortable as sitting at your desk. If you're used to a clicky keyboard like the IBM, you will find the keys a bit squishy but no more so than any other keyboard of recent manufacture. Compare this keyboard to the free one you get when you buy a PC. It does the job but it's not top of the line.

I wish the bottom of the keyboard had the two fold out feet to raise the angle, that would be more comfortable. As another reviewer said, it could be smaller if they'd left off the number pad but NO! Many of us wanted the best of both worlds, a full size keyboard in a portable form.

I have to agree with the other reviewer who wrote about the location of the power button.
