Some folks have talked about bad reception, etc, but within 15 feet, I always have solid reception.Sometimes if I set something thick and metal in front of or on top of the desk surface receiver, it misses strokes, but then I move the stuff and it's fine.
A lot of RF wireless devices are actually pretty sensitive to electromagnetic interference and any strong signals. (and unlike crazy folks who think wifi hurts them, this is a real thing)
As a gamer who loves wireless peripherals (I know) I've spent a lot of time troubleshooting and playing with them to get them to work right - one big deal, don't stick them together. Don't stick them in your computer at all if you can help it - get some cheap USB extenders and tape them to the top of your desk, or get a USB grommet kit and drill it through your desk. The further it is from your PC and things with other wireless signals, the better, as the simplest possible rule of thumb.
On the side of gaming, I love this keyboard. It's VERY quick and responsive to the point where my wire loyalist friends looked for a wire to see if I was screwing with them. (A lot of modern peripherals poll at extremely high rates, rivaling even PS/2 in some cases) Because of back, wrist and finger problems, I can't hunch over a desk comfortably for a length of time without messing something up. I play and use my machine from a very large recliner, on a custom lapdesk about 10 feet away from the receivers for my mouse and keyboard. Sometimes, I go as far away as 15 feet with the keyboard, to the couch. I haven't had any issues with reception at all.
All in all, this has been a really excellent keyboard.
First and foremost this is a mechanical keyboard. If you want a quiet, lightweight, gentle, don't-break-me-bro keyboard this probably isn't your kind of keyboard. On the other hand if you need a stout keyboard you can use day in day out, which won't skitter across the desk as you type, and won't wear out in a year or two, this keyboard is good.
The key-press is a little hard; however, not overly so. This isn't a membrane keyboard. It has tactile feedback. This keyboard uses Cherry Switch MX Brown mechanical keys which are a much loved in the mechanical keyboard world.
This keyboard has a very useful feature. You can run it wired via USB or wirelessly without a USB cable. The best of both wired and wireless worlds. You only need the cable when running without batteries or batteries when running wirelessly.
I can recommend this keyboard for home or office use, though in either environment it is important that you understand the keyboard is not quite as quiet or lightweight as cheaper membrane keyboard and doesn't have all sorts of bells and whistles.
The U9W is perfect. Not cords. Well, they give you a cord, but I haven't had to use it. The battery life seems very acceptable. The keyboard does go into sleep mode, which is good since there isn't an on/off switch to conserve battery life. The keyboard wakes when you tap a key and an unobtrusive LED light turns on. Another LED lights up whenever a key is tapped. The third is a battery indicator, I guess it lights up when your batteries are low in energy. I haven't seen it turn on except when it wakes. By the way that is a good feature. Like the LEDs in your car, they should light up when you start it up, to verify that it will illuminate when you need it to.
Anyway, the Dinovo is a better keyboard for portability, no doubt. Small, light and quiet. You can travel with the Dinovo. It's small enough to put into your laptop bag without taking up too much space and it has an on/off switch. The iOne Armor U9W is not that keyboard. It's more of the opposite. I wouldn't travel with it without removing the batteries as, it will wake if anything depresses a key.
The keyboard is a bit quirky, I have to say. There is a place to store the USB micro-dongle. But, it's just for storage. It would have been nice to see a switch that shuts the keyboard off, when stored. I have a Logitech mouse that does that. It's a nice feature. Adding this feature would resolve battery drain issues with the travel.
The other thing that is quirky is the attachment of the palm rest. The rest works very well, but it snaps in with tabs that can be easily snapped off. In fact I was very concerned that I might break them off when I first installed the palm rest. It went on fine, but when installed, its more or less hinged to the keyboard. So, it will drop down if you lift it up. This probably isn't good if you intend to use the keyboard in your lap. The keyboard is usable in your lap, but the palm rest is not that effective.
The only other thing I would have like to see is storage for that cord. If you are going to include a "back-up" cord, include a place to store that thing. Seriously, you have storage for the micro-dongle that probably wouldn't be removed from the laptop, but, nowhere to store the cord. A redesign of the palm rest should include this.
Quirks aside, I am giving this 5 stars for a reason. It's a very good keyboard. It feels like a keyboard meant for touch typing. The palm rest is just the right size. The keys feels right, perfectly spaced. The keys are where they are supposed to be. It's noisy, but, if you want a mechanical keyboard, that's what you're going get. I don't see this keyboard falling apart like membrane keyboards. For a 17" desktop replacement laptop, this wireless keyboard is perfect when you're sitting at your desk, especially since docking stations are usually not an option for the home user.
If you're looking for keyboard to use at your desk because you hate the keys on your laptop, this is the keyboard to buy. Look elsewhere if you want something for travel. For that, I'm keeping my Dinovo as a backup. If iOne fixes the quirks, I might be more inclined to state otherwise. But, this is the first attempt at wireless mechanical keyboard for anyone, so, maybe version 2.0 will resolve these issues.
