great portable keyboard, but it has its drawbacks......

Comments about Microsoft ARC KEYBOARD USB PORT ENGLISHNA HDWR US ONLY BL , Keyset:

Microsoft Arc Wireless Keyboard is indeed portable, light weight and priced right for its functionality.

The nano receiver can be tucked in on the bottom of the keyboard which it's easier to transport if needed. (Travel protective cover is included)

For various reasons, I do not like the glossy finish of the keyboard. It attracts fingerprint like a magnet and it also get scratched easily.

The range is decent, I used it on my HTPC setup and it can be used at around 10 feet range and still perform like a champ.

I have a big problem about the placement of the arrow key and no page up&down keys. The design team came up with the solution of using the arrow key on the keyboard, it works, but in my opinion, it's too small and a bit clunky to navigate with.

I'm also questioning its durability. The first keyboard I received had some of the keys malfunctioning. The 2nd pair works fine so far.

Overall, I would recommend this keyboard, but you do have to understand it has its limitations.

A great performing portable keyboard

Comments about Microsoft ARC KEYBOARD USB PORT ENGLISHNA HDWR US ONLY BL , Keyset:

When my husband spilled his coffee all over my laptop keyboard I was completely unable to access my computer.  All of the keys were frozen and I was told it would take two weeks to get a new keyboard in.  Enter the Microsoft Arc Keyboard.  I love this thing.  Just insert the wireless adapter into and HDMI port and start typing.  The keyboard itself is small enough to rest on top of my laptop keyboard, so the portability is still there.  I especially like the "arc" of the keyboard which is very ergodynamic for typing.  I wish there was a way to make it my permanent keyboard on my laptop.  It is so comfortable and the key action is very responsive.  It reminds me of my son's Mac.  The only complaint I have is that the Home, PgDn, End, and PgUp keys are at the top of the keyboard to make it more compact, but it's just not as comfortable for me to have them there versus on the right side of the keyboard.  All in all a great buy and solution.
