MCSaite Mini Bluetooth Keyboard (for My iPad mini)
This MCSaite Mini Bluetooth Keyboard boasts the full keyboard in such a small package. It has 80 keys in it with 15 function keys. It works only on Windows computers, iPhones and iPads. And, it is powered by 2 AAA batteries with an intelligent power saving feature.
I got this keyboard because I think it would complement my iPad mini. I do a bit of writing and I need to get away from the on screen keyboard since it could be really incovenient typing long paragraphs on the screen.
I went to Sulit and found a really accomodating seller that sells this really cheap bluetooth keyboard. This is only PHP950 by the way. I think it was a sweet deal so I immediately went for it.

The Not So Good
However, it actually took some time for me to get comfortable with its size. It is such a small keyboard that is almost similar to the length of the iPad mini in landscape orientation. I have slightly huge fingers. So, it took a lot of getting used to. But, after typing a few paragraphs I was able to slowly catch up and type normally without any problems.
Another issue I encountered was the fact that some keys are messed up. By that I mean the icons are different from what it could actually do. For example, a certain function key shows a music control button when in fact it does not. I actually spent some time figuring out what each keys (along with the combination of function keys) do.
I Still Like It Though
Overall, I think I could say I really like this keyboard. In fact, I've been typing on it the whole day without any problems. I already got used to it and I even typed this whole review on the keyboard itself.
If you are looking for a budget bluetooth keyboard that complements with the iPad mini's size, I think this is perfect. But, if you are looking for a more comfortable typing experience (especially hardcore writers), then I think you are better off with a full size keyboard. They are pretty expensive though.
