This keyboard is just about ideal. The keys are nicely sized and spaced just right for touch-typing, with a nice, responsive feel -- but not too loud. All built-in functions integrate beautifully with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet.
Size-wise, the keyboard is a bit larger and heavier than the Bluetooth model that I use for school and travel, but I wouldn't hesitate to pop it in a briefcase and take it along, either -- and, in fact, if I plan to be doing important work on my tablet, I'd probably choose this keyboard, which is a little quicker and behaves more reliably.

For the purpose of completeness, I also tested the keyboard with my phone (Moto...
I bought 150 of these for a classroom pilot. We needed keyboards with a wire (versus bluetooth) as we wanted to avoid connection problens with 30+ bluetooth keyboards in a small classroom. Unfortunatly, there's been about a 10% failure rate within the first couple of months. I would not recommend. :(
