This turned out to be smaller than I expected, but I suppose I should have realized that. It's closer to the size of a cell-phone than a tablet, so although you can't type on it like a netbook's keyboard you can at least hold it comfortably in your hand and comfortably 'thumb type'.

The keys are a nice rubber and the case feels solid enough in spite of being ultra-slim. I was surprised, however, that there was no page up or page down anywhere on the keyboard. I also found that the question mark didn't work on a second non-playbook linux device I tried.

The charging light didn't come on unless I jiggled the cable that came with it, and the button to start polling is a pain to press. If you bite your nails you'll be trying to press it with the end of a spoon.

Whenever my Playbook went to sleep the connection would be lost but I haven't tried to reproduce this on another device.

It's not a huge improvement over the touchscreen keyboard, but it's a faster, easier to correct mistakes, and while this is connected the Plabook doesn't pop-up the on-screen keyboard.

I ordered this product and although it took a couple weeks to come in, the customer service was good in returning emails inquiring about the product status as the tracking info was not available. When i received it i was a little surprised to see how "mini" this keyboard was. It is no bigger than my iPhone and for some may work well, but I was a little unsatisfied. It also has a slow response when trying to type while on the web or through messages, it can get a little frustrating! It may be good for those looking for something small, and is cheaper compared to the more expensive bluetooth keyboard out there!

I just received my HS Mini Keyboard and was amazed by this little gadget. perfect size to drop in your pocket and very versitle with many more key functions then I thought. The item itself was quick to charge and easy to use. Great for texting or typing. I would recommend to anyone looking for a bluetooth keyboard to use with their playbook or tablet to look at and compare this item. Highly recommended for someone who is on the go like myself.

First of all, the keys are so difficult to press. When I tried to pair it with my playbook it kept failing... I found out it was because I wasn't pressing the keys hard enough. Once I finally got connected the media keys don't work with the playbook... If this thing is meant for the playbook it certainly doesn't function for it.

For my computer, all of the keys work but note you need a bluetooth receiver for this to work on a desktop, luckily I had one. It was cheap enough but if I could go back I'd spend that little extra and get a better product.
