    I had the Keys to go but ended up returning it a couple days later. I liked the thin and light form factor but it was waaay too expensive. Also, the way the keys take some getting used to...they're not very raised at all and it makes it harder to tell what keys you're hitting. They don't have a very tactile feel to them and they take more effort to press down so I was often missing some letters from things I was typing.

    I ended up going with this Anker keyboard from Amazon which is $44 cheaper ($25.99) than the Keys To Go. It feels more like a normal keyboard, has a 6 month battery life, and comes with an 18 month warranty while still being compact and portable.

    I also have this Anker keyboard which I've also been using for almost a couple years now. It's even more portable than the one above, has a long battery life, is made out of aluminum, and is super super thin and compact....for $19 on Amazon.

    If money isn't an issue, you may be fine with the Keys To Go, but honestly those two Anker keyboards are at least 45 bucks cheaper than the Keys To Go and do the same thing but better. I honestly think $70 for a keyboard is nuts, but that's just me.

    I've used the Keys To Go almost daily for over six months now, sometimes for long stretches of writing. It's easily the single most portable keyboard I've tried--I can slide it along with the Air 2 and smart cover into virtually every sleeve I have, even the most snugly fitted, which means I don't need a larger bag to carry them both wherever I'm going. Yes, the fabric finish and low profile keys take some getting used to, but once you've used it exclusively for a little bit, any issues with typing on it pretty much vanish. It is overpriced, but you can find ways of not paying full retail--Best Buy has the black one on sale for $49.99 as I type this.

    If you don't need that kind of portability and aren't a total klutz about routinely spilling things on your keyboards, there are plenty of good quality regular Bluetooth keyboards out there for less. For me--no, thanks. I gave up my previous BT keyboards to friends. Keys to Go is the way to go in my case.

    Still overpriced even at $49. If I wanted, I could get two of the Anker keyboards (25.99 each) listed in my post above for 2 dollars more than the Keys-to-go and its battery lasts for 6 months. I even bought a 2 year warranty for mine through Amazon for like a dollar extra which goes into effect when the Anker 18-month warranty ends.

    Sure the Keys-to-go may be a good option for some, but just know there are cheaper options out there that do the same thing.

    I have a red keys to go, the colour was part of the attraction, but also, light, waterproof, I like the feel and action of the keyboard. I agree it is overpriced, but it suits my needs perfectly.

    I've used it for less than a month but loved it the whole time. Yeah, it's a little more pricey, but my attraction to it was the well spaced keys (felt like a standard keyboard), thin and flat profile, and most importantly that it was waterproof which relieves me of having to worry about being so careful around my electronics. Definitely worth the price tag.

    I have that same ultra-thin Anker keyboard and it works great on my Air 2 and with my Android devices.
