Great little wireless keyboard!
This little keyboard works perfectly with my Raspberry Pi. I haven't tried using it with a computer but it should work fine since it uses the standard USB wireless interface. If you are going to use it for a computer it would be best used as a couch remote control-type keyboard.

Great little device, immediately usable
I purchased this to work with my Raspberry Pi, and it was quickly recognized by the device. The keys have a nice 'click' to them for a bit of feedback that it was pressed and the small layout only took a little while to get used it, still larger than a cell phone keyboard. I was impressed with the small mouse touchpad. Large enough for my thumb and sensitive enough that I do not recall hitting the edges of it much. I have not had it long enough to judge the battery life, but I cannot see it becoming a problem with a device such as this.
I find myself often forgetting about the small ON-OFF switch at the bottom of the unit, but it is the most convenient place to have it.
I see this as a must if you are purchasing a Pi to play around with... granted a full sized keyboard would work fine too.

Good responsive touchpad
Awesome! Works great. Small size. The touchpad works quite well. Uses 2 aaa batteries not included. Also has a space in the back to hold the usb receiver when you are moving or traveling with it. Also has an on-off switch to save power. I leave it on all the time. Will know in a few months how battery holds power.

Works great, surprisingly easy to use, including the touchpad. Tested on windows, ubuntu linux and soon Pi
I wanted this to use as a portable, just in case, for a raspberry Pi, but just tested it out on my desktop and laptop, and it's much better than I'd hoped! The touchpad is properly set up and smooth, the slider actually works well, and the keys are completely usable. Today I tested it by plugging it into a Ubuntu machine (prior was windows), and it worked fine on that with zero setup also.
great, cheap little portable keyboard, highly recommend!

A very nice BT keyboard with both left and right modifier keys
A very nice BT keyboard with both left and right modifier keys! And it can use my slew of Eneloop rechargeable LSD NiMH batteries, to boot! Imagine that!
The only downside is that there's no backlight. I just could NOT find the combination of BlueTooth, mini, backlight, and standard AA/AAA batteries after searching for HOURS. So I ended up using this one for my laptop (so I can sit back in my chair ;-), since I usually have the lights on anyways when using the laptop.
And for my 2nd gen BTA-MALL FireTV box, I use the IPazzPort KP-810-21SBL (has backlight). On this one, one of the buttons even functions as the BTA-MALL Home button! The nice thing about the latter here is that it at least has an easily user-replaceable Li-Ion phone-type battery, so I can change it without opening it up when the battery eventually wears out... Which is the 2nd best thing after standard AA/AAA batteries.

This little Bluetooth Gem of a Keyboard works like a champ!
Needed a small keyboard for my Android TV Box. Using the standard remote to select letters on the TV screen using the "cursor" function is extremely trying and frustrating. Made searching for movies or TV shows really not worth the effort.
This little Bluetooth Gem works like a champ! The Android TV Box is located in our Entertainment Center behind smoked glass doors and I have found the Bluetooth effective range is about 20 feet, plenty for our needs. The battery operated keyboard has an On/Off switch to prevent battery drain when not in use. It also includes a timed power-down feature - after approximately 5 seconds of inactivity, the Keyboard powers down. To power back up, simply press any key and power is restored. May be a little confusing at first, but I find is a nice battery saving feature while watching movies or TV Shows.
Unit is solid, keys have a nice feel and the little mousepad is surprisingly effective! But do be careful... there are a few buttons on the sides that may accidently be pressed when first getting use to handling.

BT pairing is easy and straitforward when you get the right directions (press ...
The keyboard is awkward, but it's meant to make life a little easier on AppleTVs/Rokus/KODI and other TV interfaces where you usually only have a directional to input characters. The Bluetooth is reliable but the power saving option turns it off after a few minutes of inactivity - to my knowledge that's not something you can disable. BT pairing is easy and straitforward when you get the right directions (press & hold FN+F1). Battery life is respectable. The trackpad is fairly useless since my thumb could cover the thing/can't use it effectively. There are page up/down buttons on the side and the arrow keys are definitely helpful. I keep this in my backpack since it comes in useful whenever I am out.

Sub par power switch, no rechargeable battery, but overall a nice choice.
I was conflicted about giving this product 4 stars instead of 3 stars. The power button on the top of mine is... not good. It works, but it's very hard to slide it back and forth and I worry I'll break it at some point. I went with 4 stars simply because otherwise it works as I expect and I like the form factor. It would have been better if it came with a rechargeable battery instead of requiring 2 AAA batteries which aren't included (they do mention that in the listing) but I'd imagine the AAA batteries will power this thing for a good bit plus it automatically goes in to power save mode when you don't use it so if you forget to turn it off it's not really a big deal.
Overall it's a fine device.

The keyboard has a nice tactile response when you press the keys
Pleasantly surprised. The keyboard has a nice tactile response when you press the keys, so there is no ambiguity. Plug and play with Windows 10, no issues. No special drivers required, no extensive setup. I had it plugged in and was using it within 5 seconds of turning the keyboard on. Build quality seems nice especially for the price. The tiny touch/mouse pad is responsive, and doesn't require any excess pressure to operate.
My only point of concern is that I'm fairly sure that the tiny little lip that secures the battery compartment door to the keyboard appears very flimsy. This is a slight nitpick though. For what this think costs, it's great.
*Will update when I figure out how long the batteries last.

Great little keyboard/trackpad
This is a great little keyboard. I bought it to use with my Raspberry Pi 3. It works great with it. Will you want to use it a lot? Of course not - it's tiny. But that's the point - small keyboard and touchpad you can easily use anywhere. It worked right off the bat with Raspberrian. I haven't tried it elsewhere but I don't see why it wouldn't work on any USB computer.
I like that the USB transceiver stores in the keyboard itself. I don't like the LED that flashes with the key presses, but I can live with that. For the price, this thing is exactly what I wanted.
