Hit and Miss
on August 3, 2013
It is indeed wireless and has a pretty decent range to boot, as I'm currently typing this while about 10 or so feet away from the computer. Also, the battery life is amazing. The first two batteries lasted me well over a year (actually, more like two years) with almost daily use and I'm only on the second pair right now and still showing full charge. Speaking of, there's a nice little battery indicator that you can install on your computer to let you know when it's time for a fresh pair.
They keyboard itself is extremely thin and the keys resemble the flat style found on most laptops, which took some getting used to. But after a few days, I was typing just as fast as I did with a traditional keyboard.
So what's the problem? Why only 3 stars? Well, it would be 5, or at least 4, if it worked all of the time. Sometimes, for seemingly no reason at all, it just stops working. The light on the receiver lights up telling you the something is happening when you press the keys, but no letters appear on the screen. The only way to fix the problem is to mash on a few keys for a few seconds until key imputs start registering again, and then backspace whatever gibberish you just wrote. It doesn't happen all of the time, but it happens enough to be very annoying and warrant me subtracting 2 stars.
I really don't have any experience with any other wireless keyboards yet, so I can't say whether the problems with this one are normal for wireless keyboards in general or not. I buy things and expect them to work 100% of the time and this one works more like 95%, so I will be replacing it at some point. I don't regret buying this, but it's not a long term solution to my wireless needs. That being said, I've owned it for several years now so I'm obviously not in a hurry to replace it. Maybe your experience will be different based on your needs and circumstances, but I have a hard time recommending this given other options in the same price range.
