It looks lovely and feels nice, but it's too fragile
Shinyuu Wolfy, 12.04.2019
It's clearly designed after the apple bluetooth keyboard, down to the feel and finish. The keys have the exactly same distance as on your casual keyboard but are smaller themselves to facilitate for the frame. It feels slightly odd at first but you can easily adjust to it.

Bluetooth connectivity feels like magic. You press a button on the keyboard and then select it in your OS'es MIDI settings – or an iPhone – and then it just works. Instant boost to on-the-go creativity.

The pitch/mod controls done as buttons are tricky and you really need to get used to those. I'd be happier if the keyboard was just a notch narrower myself.

Now onto the sad part. It's VERY fragile. I got the official case and had it in my backpack twice (and the backpack wasn't even full – just the notebook and the keyboard). Somehow that was enough for the keys to start falling off and once they are off it's really non-trivial to clip them back on (and they feel more wobbly afterwards).

It's super slim, nice looking, and neat. Go for it if you want a stylish keyboard of your cramped desk but it's not fit for travels.

Keys easily fall off
Lewis--, 09.08.2017
This looks like a handy travel keyboard, but it has one major flaw - the keys can very easily snap off when the bag is in a backpack as they are protruding and are loosely attached. Once they've snapped off, there's no way to get them back on - it's broken.
I would not recommend this keyboard.
