Top customer reviews
I was actually very apprehensive about this purchase after reading a plethora of reviews of complaining of poor BlueTooth range. I've been using this keyboard with a computer that is positioned eight feet away and haven't had any problems with connectivity with the exception of reestablishing a connection after waking the computer from sleep which takes anywhere from 5 to 30 seconds and has nothing to due with signal range. That is a normal inconvenience that I have come to expect from BlueTooth devices.
Note: I do occasionally experience the "pointer creep" that some have commented about where the pointer on the screen begins to wander on its own. Holding one of the arrow keys until it hits the edge of the screen always stops it. It's a little annoying, but worth it for the functionality of the keyboard. It is small and lacks a few of the functions of a full keyboard, but I haven't found anything I can't work with. I just sit the little guy on my lap and don't have to mess with a cord or a mouse or remove my fingers while typing to move around the screen. It connects well with my phone and tablet as well.
It is AMAZING that this keyboard works so smoothly with my latest Macbook Pro Retina 13, with latest El Captain. Though I cannot modify advanced settings for the track point (Apparently Lenovo will not release any drivers for OS X), but the default settings are more than enough for me: the moving speed of the track point is just right for me, and the combination of middle button and track point is set to be scrolling--just what I want. After missing the track point for more than 3 years since I moved from Thinkpad to Macbook, I finally found a way to enjoy the convenience of the track point on mac.
Bluetooth is terrible. Takes up to 45 seconds to wake up and reconnect, best case scenario. Every now and again it's requires repairing. Battery doesn't last all that long.
Get this in the wired version if there is any way you can use that.
As far as the mechanics of the keys are concerned, it's about the same in all respects as my X230 notebook's keyboard, which is good. It would've been nice if the wrist rest was bigger, but it's fine as is.
But then, there are problems...
First, holy hell, the range is BAD. I remember having some kind of Bluetooth 4.0 audio gadget I occasionally used to make wiry headphones into something like wireless and I now recall why I stopped using them. If you're more than about a few feet away from the source, Bluetooth will stutter. For the audio thing, it meant that sound would cut out for a few seconds while it paired with the source again. For this keyboard, it varies from merely annoying to potentially very bad.
When the Bluetooth connection cuts out, the light on the right side blinks a bit until it pairs successfully again. During that time, obviously, anything you enter into the keyboard is, for the most part, truncated, which is annoying. However, I've had a number of cases where it'll pair again and have a key stuck afterward (until you guess what it is and press it). One of the more annoying keys to have stuck is the Ctrl key. If it's stuck, then every other key you press is basically Ctrl + that key. When that happens, if, for example, you type 'also', it'll select everything in the document, delete the line (in Notepad++), and then save the document. Let's hope you don't type a 'w' after that.
Second, if you're gaming, there is a noticeable amount of latency on the keyboard. Fine for turn-based stuff, which is mostly what I play, but I wouldn't use it for anything else. This might, however, just be the poor range of Bluetooth 4 in general, though.
Finally, the TrackPoint isn't the same as what I'm used to on Thinkpads either. I surmise that the trailing is related to the Bluetooth connection more than it is to the keyboard/drivers, though. Yes, it occurs on Thinkpad notebooks, too, but it's MUCH worse on this keyboard.
So, if you intend to use this keyboard in very close proximity to your paired device (like a tablet on your desk), it's fine. It'll do the job you're expecting it to do. However, if you intend to use it with an HDTV (or workstation that connects to one) and use it to play games or do work, get something else, preferably something that doesn't use Bluetooth.
