Good Value for the Money – 80-Key Slim Portable Bluetooth 2.0 Wireless Keyboard - Black (2*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
Small Form Factor. Portable.
Keyboard is a
Feels solidly built. Matt plastic frame feels sturdy.
Paired easily with both my Galaxy Tab and first gen iPad.
No lag in response to typed keys and most importantly, if I stop typing for a short time the keyboard doesn't timeout or hibernate.
Snappy response. No sway or sponginess anywhere.
If my Tab or iPad go to sleep, tapping a key will wake them up.
Cons:
Finding just the right key pressure seems hard though. I can be typing along and suddenly realize that I have typed a string of the same letter . . . . *aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa* without meaning to.
I have run into this problem before with another inexpensive bluetooth keyboard.
Other:
The keys do require firm pressure - it is definitely not a "touch" keyboard. I plan to use mine with my Tab or iPad, and I am not going to be typing for long intervals. I would not want to write a novel using the keyboard, but for typing a few emails and minor document editing it should be fine.
Bottomline:
Extremely good value for the money.
I bought it because of its size and the price.
Would buy it again.
