I agree. I cannot envision a scenario where I'd want to use my touch keyboard further away from my surface than the physical connection allows. I guess you could make the argument you want to hook the surface to a tv and use the keyboard remotely, but even that it seems like he mirroring dongle and using the surface is a better option. This is a product I just don't get.

That's a perfect example. I have hooked my SP4 up to the TV in our conference room at work and had to sit in the chair right next to the TV to type and whatnot. This would allow me to hook up to the TV and not have to sit awkwardly close to the wall/tv during meetings and presentations

Usage scenario: When you're drawing on your lap.

The keyboard is helpful for photoshop shortcuts, but it gets in the way.

My girlfriend uses a numpad that's set up to use those shortcuts, but I would have bought this if I'd have known about it at the time (and it was $20) rather than use the numpad.

Miracast and the Surface dongle all have major lag. Terrible lag! This will not have the lag. Bluetooth isn't very powerful, which is a remarkable comment of how much better this is than the wireless video settings. With this you do NOT have to suck up CPU power converting video over wifi to your TV, which means MUCH more power for whatever real projecting you are doing.

This will make you look more professional when flat on a table. But there are caveats. The strong magnetic click is attention getting, which is good for show but bad for stealthy setups. The attachment is better on a table than holding, because it flops at the end when unsupported. Lastly, and it's biggest fail, is the battery is NOT Li-ion, but the old NIMH battery cell. That spells out terrible battery life. But it is amazingly portable, and at this price, I might buy another!

Will it let you pair with other tablets? I love my Surface, but also have an 8" tablet I would like to be able to use with the Surface keyboard.

costs as much as some bluetooth keyboard. Not sure if worth it...
Does it work with Power Keyboard (the one with battery) as well?
