I bought this virtual keyboard on a whim, and was attracted to it mostly because it pairs with all bluetooth devices. I was astounded by it as soon as I began using it. For years I would cart a heavy laptop around with me so I could do my work on the go, but now I just carry my tablet and virtual keyboard in my bag and my shoulder appreciates it. The virtual keyboard is fantastic. It has a sleek and professional design to it, so much so that I often feel comfortable pulling it out in business meetings and impressing my coworkers. It is also quite fast, the keyboard response time is great considering there are no physical keys to type on.(Just don't type like crazy) Also, the virtual keyboard can be used on absolutely any flat surface, desks, counters, shelves, you name it. And I don't have to worry about germs with the virtual keyboard, (especially as my kids are using it). With regular keyboards dirt and germs get all inside the keys and is difficult to clean, but with the virtual keyboard I just take a antibacterial wipe and clean the surface I am using. In addition, it is so small that it can even fit in your pocket without weighing you down. (It weights practically nothing) All in all, I would consider the virtual keyboard one of my best technology buys. I wish I could add some negative aspects of the keyboard to balance out this review, but I'm actually having a hard time thing of anything to put! That's how great it is! Trust me, you won't regret taking the time to purchase this virtual keyboard, I highly recommend trying it out.

I was very excited about this product and couldn't wait to get to a Brookstone to try it out. Man, what a disappointment. First of all, they had the product displayed directly under a halogen ceiling light so it was almost impossible to even see the keyboard. After several minutes of fiddling with the bloothtooth connection and very little help from a bored sales clerk, I was finally able to try it out and that's when the real disappointment started. I could not type ANY letter without 5-6 other characters spewing out of the the virtual keyboard. About the only botton that responded well was the DEL button... when I had to erase everything and start over five times in a row. I finally wandered out of the store depressed and disapointed. I honetstly have no idea how this product has so many good reviews because it was truly unusable for me.

    Got it for my husband for Father's Day. He went crazy as the geek that he is. He played with it and fell in love. It takes practice and sometimes has a little slag.

        Gets high marks for being really cool looking, but trying to use it really made my hands hurt. I have to hold my hands in an awkward, painful position to access the "keys". Definitely not ergonomically sound.

          Comments about Virtual Keyboard:

          I will be returning item - it was not what I expected. I am a professional typist and keep my fingers on the "home" keys - but you cannot with the virtual keyboard, there will be a continuous buzzing noise. I purchased the virtual keyboard because it was a great tiny "gum pack" size and hook for keychain solution for my iPad and texting for cell phone. However I do not enjoy the "1 finger" typing. But it is a neat idea!

                I bought this for my husband for Christmas (2013), and he has loved using it. He showed it to everyone, and all the men think it was a cool gift. It doesn't type quite as quickly as a regular keyboard but is easy to adjust to using. Great to use on the go!
