Anker has outdone themselves once again with this ultra thin, very elegantly designed, compact, durable, full size mini Keyboard. This Anker Ultra-Slim Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 Keyboard is the third wireless keyboard I have recently purchased on Amazon. I have to say that this keyboard is well-made, high quality and matches the features and descriptions of the product.

It took less than 30 seconds to pair with my iPad and worked instantly. The slim design is perfect for the case I use to carry it. I love that it is rechargeable rather than requires a battery. Batteries mean bulk. This requires a USB charger that you can connect to your laptop or adapter to charge.

The finish on the front is exceptional, it is this matte black, almost rubber like substance that feels very good to my touch. It is slide resistant and easy to handle, the surface material gives you a great grip on it. The keyboard comes with 2 packages of 4 mini-clear
acrylic bumpers that are also made from extremely slide resistant materials. It has a very nice brushed chrome finish on the bottom.
It also comes with its own charging cable for the rechargeable battery that is included and built into this wireless keyboard by Anker. Charging cable is the usual USB Plug on one side, and the MICRO USB plug on the other side. Plug big USB into your computer USB port and plug in the Smaller MICRO USB plug into your new Anker Wireless rechargeable keyboard! It works great charges up Ina couple of hours. It can also be plugged into your Power Cube for charging.

One of the features that make this such a good keyboard is that unlike Apple version the FN key is marked in blue, as all of my previous laptops and computer keyboards were as well. So it is easier for me to find the Hot Keys on this version.

Pros:
Crispy typing experience
Really well-made (the material, design and details)
The extra line of function keys serve iDevices very well, very handy!

Cons:
Not much about the quality, but rather about the key arrangements: the keyboard layout is quite different from the regular keyboard, and I do understand that it is a compromise for the small size and light weight. However, I think the “shift” on the right hand side could be a little longer, or switch with the “page up” key; the “enter” key can be longer bu reducing the size of “Caps Lock”; last but not least, the entire bar on the top where the “Anker” logo and “off/on” switch are located, would be better off if moved to the bottom of the keyboard as wrist support – just think it might be more comfortable for those typing alot.

Overall, this is a really good product at a really good price. I didn’t expect to like it this much because of the low price. But really, it’s exactly what I was looking for.
