I purchased this keyboard for use with an iPod Touch and iPad as a distraction-free writing tool with typewriter-like mechanical interface. What a great keyboard! Solid feel, the Cherry MX brown switches are perfect for me and this diminutive keyboard works well with mobile iOS devices directly with no powered USB hub required. I see this combination of V60 keyboard and iOS device as a replacement for the now defunct AlphaSmart Neo word processing keyboards.
A nice keyboard at good price with descent build quality. I didn't expect it to be very satisfying, just bought it for in office work. However, there are a couple of nice things. First, the cherry brown switches do give nice feeling. Second, the double shot keycaps look sturdy. Third, the 6 dip switches give almost perfect flexibility of adjusting position of the modifiers (ctrl and keys at bottom row). Last but not least, arrow key mode (press fn Enter, 4 keys at right bottom corner become arrow keys) could be handy.
Overall, this is a nice 61 key alternative to pok3r at a lower price with less features, which makes sense.
Another thing I noticed, the color actually appears to be darker than in the pictures.
