Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keyboard, poor supportIt's a great little keyboard. Though don't expect much support from ThinkPad - if a key or a leg breaks, they will just recommend you buy a new keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No real middle mouse buttonI'm an X windows user, and make extensive use of the middle mouse button with the trackpoint. I've used many Lenovo laptops and keyboards and until now loved them all because they had a three button mouse built right into the keyboard.Unfortunately, the middle mouse button on this keyboard is not really a middle mouse button, because it doesn't allow you to drag. The minute you drag, the mouse button is reported as released and instead up and down movement gets reported as scroll wheel events. Worse, I can't even get the horizontal scroll wheel to work, because it seems to get reported as a completely different class of usb hid event.What's so frustrating about this is that it's trivial to configure the X server to emulate a scroll wheel given a third mouse button, but almost impossible to do the converse. Why did Lenovo do this do the keyboard instead of just having the driver software or configuration handle scrollwheel emulation for people who want it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Keyboard ever!This is an excellent keyboard. While it is compact it doesn't feel cramped. It would be even better if a slightly softed plastic was used. Over all, this is, in my opinion the berybest portable keyboard available. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for the moneyI bought this keyboard a month ago. All in all, it was good value for the money, especially if you're running out of desktop space. However, the keystrokes feel and sound cheap. Keyboards on real ThinkPad laptops are way better. I wish they just put the real keyboard in this external form factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great KeyboardI have a small home office desk and bought this compact keyboard for extra paperwork space. Its size, responsiveness and haptic feedback perfectly fit the bill. The unexpected surprise is how well the Trackpoint works. My Thinkpad Yoga 12’s internal one has never worked properly and I generally use a mobile mouse instead. For whatever reason, the external keyboard’s Trackpoint works perfectly with the same laptop. This is my 9th or 10th Thinkpad since the original model, and this keyboard’s Trackpoint may be the most comfortabke. Recommended to anyone needing a compact keyboard. I also bought Lenovo’s excellent number keypad to go with it, which I can set aside when I don’t need it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for travel but also wrist / shoulder reliefThis is a really great keyboard. The form and size allows for travel but I've got these for my desktop machines at home and work. The low profile helps with wrist strain and the compact size allows the mouse to be closer and your shoulder positions to be more neutral which is really nice. You can SWITCH the Ctrl and Fn key functions if you like. It's in the manual. That said, I haven't switched it and I use the Ctrl key extensively without issue. Also, I keep the F# keys active instead of the multimedia keys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from X1 Carbon Dream Come TrueI purchased the ThinkPad USB 3.0 Hub for my X1 and last second decided to see if Lenovo had the forethought to port over the amazing keyboard from the X1 to a USB. Thank goodness. This thing feels amazing. The first one I received had the middle scroll button stick a little. 5 minute call to Lenovo and a new one was on the way at no charge with a prepaid box to ship the old one back. Fantastic customer service on top of a fantastic product makes it hard to recommend anything else.On a side note: Lenovo, whenever you decide to update this keyboard I have two suggestions:1. Make it back lit (I would buy another one tomorrow).2. Don't use the newest X1 keyboard layout. Not a fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good plastic, different movement vs laptopNice to touch material. Sturdy. The only cons is the movement is quite different compared to X1 Carbon keyboard. The key stroke is longer, softer and louder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent keyboard! Quiet!Love this keyboard. Offers the same layout as the thinkpad, which I really like. It is consistent going from dock to laptop. Love the page up/down keys being so accessible for excel and web browsing. It is very study, with satisfying keystrokes, but also quiet so it doesn’t bother those nearby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite external keyboard.My favorite external keyboard. But the quality is not nearly as nice as the laptop keyboards. There is a lot of flex in the chassis.
