Pros:
* Tiny!
* Tiny!
* Tiny!
Great because you can bring it anywhere. Tuck it into your toolkit or in your messenger bag and keep it with you always.
Or use it on a system that requires very little interaction, such as a server that is remotely controlled most of the time, and you can tuck this out of the way when not in use.
Cons:
button action is a little difficult. Sometimes you may have to press a button again.
Other:
Buttons are tiny too - but you know that, because you are looking at a tiny keyboard
Layout is a little odd - to be expected on micro keyboard.
The price is fair. I would like one with better buttons, but that would cost more.
Lastly: do not use this to play with Kiosk computers. That would be naughyt!
Bottomline:
Primary number one reason to buy this keyboard+touchpad: great for booting into a system that does not normally have a keyboard because most of the time it is remote controlled. You would not want to write a book with this keyboard but it is good enough for logging in and starting Synergy (open source keyboard sharing program). Once Synergy is running, tuck this keyboard away.
