4.0 out of 5 stars Portable and effective but with a minor flaw February 26, 2011
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This keyboard looks as if it had been pried off the keyboard from a high quality laptop, and stretched it into a smile.

The implications of this?

1. the keyboard is awesomely portable. It's probably a half inch thick, and about the size of the keyboard on a 15.6" laptop. It fits very easily into the narrowest of spaces alongside my netbook or laptop.

2. the aesthetics are great - its a minimalistic design where even the logo is unobtrusive. A single battery indicator light keeps you company as you type. A rubberized texture around the edges of the keys adds a touch of luxury. Rubberized feet ensure that it won't slip even on a slick surface.

3. As would be expected, there isn't room for all the keys you'd find in a full sized keyboard, so the following trade-offs are made:

a) some keys (the Home, End, and Ins) do double duty, based on a Fn key.
This is a problem for me as I usually use Ctrl-Home/Ctrl-End to jump to the top/end of a document. This combination is now made more complex - Ctrl-Fn-Home and Ctrl-Fn-End. It's do-able, but is noticeably inconvenient. Even my netbook has dedicated keys for home and end, so this is a downer.

b) some keys are thinner (the cursors) or narrower (F1-F12) than on a full sized keyboard.

c) some keys are eliminated - there's only one Windows key, no Properties key, and no number pad

d) media keys are limited to Volume Up/Down/Mute.

4. Pairing the keyboard is very easy. You make the keyboard discoverable (a recessed button on the underside), ask the computer to find the device, and enter the code provided by the computer on this keyboard and press Enter. That's it!

5. Pairing with another device is just as simple.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good bluetooth keyboard for iPad or PC January 16, 2011
By Tom H.
I've been using the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 for about a week now with my iPad and with my Lenovo ThinkPad laptop. It gets the job done and I'd recommend it. I haven't had any delay problems as noted in other reviews (see reviews for the combo keyboard and number pad). If you're using LogMeIn on your iPad and leaving your laptop at home, this is a great accessory.

- Easy to pair and re-pair
- Feels like full size keyboard - typing all the right keys from the start
- While no dedicated Home, End etc., it's easy to use these keys by pressing Windows key
- Small, light, easily fits in small computer bag where I keep iPad
- On/off switch great to save battery
- Optional number keypad is nice addition when using at home

- No flip up legs to put the keyboard at an angle - I use two rubber erasers when using at home on my desk
- Battery cover broke the first time I inserted batteries - now held shut via scotch tape
- Only pairs to one device (I wanted to switch between PC when at home and iPad on road)

This keyboard is the most comfortable slim keyboard I've ever used. It only requires 2 AAA batteries for the keyboard and one AAA battery for the number pad.

- Extremely Slim profile
- Number Pad is separated from the keyboard for high mobility and great for any netbook and laptop without number pad. It is also great for saving a crowded desktop space.
- The ergonomic curvature allows less stress on the wrist
- Comfortable tactile feedback but at the same time feels like the keyboard is integrated on your table due to the slim form factor.
- Extremely easy to pair up with my Asus Laptop that comes with built-in Bluetooth and Windows 7.

- No dedicated HOME and END buttons on the keyboard but on the Number Pad 7, and 1 keys when Num Lock is OFF.
- Limited Multi Media Controls: only Volume Up, Down, and Mute buttons
- There are no secondary functions printed on the Number Pad, instead it gives you a tiny piece of card for you to memorize. But the good part is all number pad functions are the same as any other number pads on the market.
- Slow Bluetooth wake up time. It takes around 1 second for the keyboard to respond after 8 to 10 minutes of inactivity. You only need to press once and don't keep repeating the same key otherwise after the Bluetooth reconnects to the computer, you will see all the repeated typed strings.

If you don't mind the bluetooth slow wake up time by all means get this! It's very slim yet comfortable! It is way better than Logitech's DiNovo or Apple's Bluetooth keyboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Used with Droid X - love it! March 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
Haven't read the other reviews here, bought after reading a review for smartphones that said the MS 6000 bluetooth pairs with the Droid X.
The instructions with this keyboard are short sighted... they don't tell you how to pair with anything other than a PC. It was pretty frustrating figuring it out but come to find out it couldn't be more simple. Put both the phone and keyboard in pairing mode, type in any four numbers (more if you want)into the your phone when prompted and hit enter, then type the same four numbers on the keyboard and hit enter. They pair instantly.
The keyboard works wonderfully, but one time it spit out like 7 lines of one letter and we had to turn it off, (other reviews say this is chronic with the Droid but it's only happened once with us). Otherwise it's been great. The arrow keys navigate within the pages on the phone, like in email you can jump from the To pain to the CC to the Subject to the Text Body with the arrows (Similar to how you would use Tab in PC applications) and type away to your heart's content in each as you go. Then arrow key down to Send and hit Enter, you never have to touch the phone once you're in the app you want.
The volume buttons on the keyboard work with music apps but the mute doesn't.
Some internet complaints say the keyboard loses it's pairing with the phone and you have to un-pair it and re-pair it often. We've found that when you're done using the keyboard turn it off. Every time we've turned it back on it has remained paired and is ready to use.
We love the build of the keyboard, could be an Apple product for it's design.
It's definitely a MS product for their lack of their realizing the potential of their own product and not offering instructions even on their website to help users implement it.
