Surprisingly good KB, 8mm thicker at the top. – 78-Key Compact Slim USB Keyboard - Black (160CM-Cable) Reviews

Pros:
Looks great, feels great, good build quality, solid, nice weight, keys are good with good feel and press, relatively useful layout for a 78 keys KB of this size, small overall size - but full size typing otherwise (the Q-P distance is the same as a full KB).
Cons:
Not seen at the pictures: about 8mm bump across the bottom (below the F keys) to make it slightly raised when put on a table. Still very slim overall and doesn't really bother, but just "hidden" at the pictures.
Layout issues which can be seen at the pictures and already noted by others (no insert key, no context key, half-height UP/DN arrows, etc) but overall - no biggie.
Other:
Bottomline:
Surprisingly good quality, weight, feel and layout.
Take into account that the top side is about 8mm thicker than what you might imagine from the pictures.
Still a great KB. Congrats DX for a great product :)
