This is not an item that the average person would probably have any real use for, but for some purposes it s indispensable. In my situation I have to support touchscreen PC s that don t have a keyboard or mouse attached, and there are times when a keyboard and mouse are necessary. Rather than carrying around a full sized keyboard and a mouse, and not having a place to set either of them down while using the other (and how do you use a mouse against cinderblock walls if there s no table?), you can hold this in one hand while the other one types on the keys or uses the built-in mouse touchpad. The keys are really small, too tiny for touch-typing but then you won t want this for word processing anyhow.

It s only about 8 inches wide and 6 inches front to back and maybe 5/8" thick; it has a decently long cord attached. (So many items and appliances are ruined by the mfr saving two cents and providing too-short of a cord - this one is better.) If you need to have a keyboard and mouse for a computer where there is little space, or where those things are not able to be used conveniently, this is a godsend. Possibly there could be some handicapped persons who would also benefit from a device this small that provides both the keyboard and mouse.

If I have any gripes about this little mini keyboard it is that you have to make sure the num lock hasn t engaged, because if it does, some of the keys revert to typing numbers instead of regular characters as it turns some of the keys into a numeric keypad arrangement, but you get used to watching for this and avoiding it.

You might also find this useful if you have a utility pc tucked away as a file server, which does not usually need a keyboard and mouse left lying around. You plug this in to the USB port, Windows installs it promptly, and voila, you have a keyboard and mouse.

Someone apparently thought my little mini keyboard was pretty cute and walked off with it - and I had to buy another one immediately, because for my purposes, there s nothing else like it. I showed the vendor who provides the touch screen PC s and he bought some for his employees to use, and they found out just how handy this is.

It s well made, or so it seems, much like any typical computer keyboard only smaller. If you need a mouse and keyboard in a pinch, and don t have space or place to put the regular items, this is perfect.

This thing is tiny. It s pretty tough to do touch typing on it as the keys are very small and close together. But it s absolutely perfect for my needs - I use it as a keyboard for a Linux server machine when I need to log in directly to the console instead of using ssh or a remote desktop. I don t need to do this often, so I didn t want to invest in a KVM switch to share with my main desktop machine, since KVM s are often temperamental. So, since my monitor has two video inputs, I can now just switch monitor inputs and bring out this little keyboard/touch pad combo that stays plugged into the Linux machine and fits easily on top of the case when not in use.

I could also see people using this as a portable keyboard for logging into servers, kiosks, HTPCs and other types of systems without real keyboards/mice. I haven t tried it with my PS3 yet but I m sure it would work for that also.


Overall it s perfect for me, but if you have larger hands (or even normal-sized hands) I doubt you ll be pleased with the touch typing performance of this keyboard.
