Five Star Reviews:
Excellent value for the money-- everything works like it should.
June 25, 2017
Overall I'm very happy with this one. It's simple, the keys feel very good, and everything works the way you'd expect it to pretty much without reading the instructions (though those are readable and helpful). The learning curve for key placement was very short. It's cramped as you'd expect but the key travel and nice firm presses make it competitive with my expensive laptop's keyboard (I keep my laptop on a stand to reduce eye, neck, and back strain). The colors are pretty without being obnoxious; I love that you can pick the color and brightness; it's one of those features I didn't know I wanted until I tried it. However, I also wish that the keyboard would remember the last color/brightness setting when I turn it off and then back on again.The size and weight are fantastic-- any laptop bag at all and most tablet bags will have plenty of room to squeeze this in. The body of the keyboard has a raised area at the top and in the corners. No effect whatsoever on comfort, but it means that when you stow the keyboard you do so with the keys facing inwards towards your tablet or laptop and that lip protects the keys from bumps and jostles in your bag. It's a very nice touch. Durability seems very good so far.Usability is good, too. As I said, the learning curve was very short. Power management is very good; great battery life and yet the keyboard isn't annoying about going into sleep mode. Some very smart timing settings on that. Wake-up takes a second or two but since it's so smart about when it goes to sleep in the first place, this works out just fine.One issue I have had is the placement of the function key; it's where you'd expect on a windows box to have the Control key. Swapping that and Control would have been smarter-- it's how most laptops do it. Also in windows mode, the Alt and Windows keys are swapped. I like that the Mac mode keys are right where you expect them, but there's no reason that the option key couldn't have been the windows key, and the command key be the alt key in PC mode. Also, the right command key should be the windows context menu key in PC mode. This stuff is easy to get used to, just a little annoying and it stands out in a design that's otherwise so polished.A few other minor issues. The labels on the LEDs in the top right corner are already wearing off. This isn't much of an issue because even if there hadn't been labels at all they'd be self-explanatory. The key labels are fine. I do wish that the keyboard had been one of those where you can pair it to multiple devices and then switch between them via a slide switch. Then I could use it with my phone, tablet, or laptop as needed without re-pairing.Finally, the keyboard originally slipped around on desks, which in addition to being annoying felt like it was bothering my wrists. The bottom is slightly rough but not enough to provide friction. So I bought some rubber feet Rubber Feet Adhesive Rubber Pads, over 1 Inch Diameter Round Self Stick Bumpers, Thin Clear Bumper Pads plus Alcohol Prep Pad - 16 Pack and put one at each corner and one in the middle. Now it's stable as hell and very comfortable to use.Overall, this is a great example of inexpensive but not cheap. It's a great value for the money. A few tweaks would make it even better, but that shouldn't stop you from getting it now. I'm very pleased.
A very cool and slim keyboard mainly great for tablets but i use it for a phone.
March 9, 2016
Bluetooth keyboards comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are made for computers and some are for phones or tablets. The average bluetooth keyboard is either full size or very small. So it's good to see one in the middle range. It's not too big or too small, it's the right size to keep with a tablet. Another thing most keyboards don't have is a way to know if it's on. This keyboard also lets you know when it's connected, there are lights under the keys. It's not boring lights like just white or red like some keyboards have. This has a selection of colors. When it starts up its the white light to let you know it has power. When the bluetooth is connected and you turn the light on its red. So here is the point you can change the colors. the colors are red, white, yellow-green,purple, light blue, green and blue. it takes some getting used to, to be able to type fast since it's about the size of the apple keyboards.
Pros: the keyboard is light weight and very thin.
Cons: it takes some playing around to figure out how everything works. the instruction manual is useless.
So in conclusion the keyboard is about the size of a Apple keyboard and very cool.
I wrote this review (and some others) with this keyboard.
Perfect, for me, and zero issues
November 15, 2015
This just happens to be perfect for my needs, but then that's why I picked it. After shopping around and reading a lot (too many) of reviews I decided to go with this one. Some people talked about various aspects of it as weeknesses but I believe that for other people those same qualities are strengths. So it's just a matter of finding what is right for you. In my case this is the perfect size, weight, feel, layout, look, and it's backlit which is sometimes very handy for me. Speaking of which if I could just slightly tweak any one thing it would maybe be slightly less bleed around the keys and more bleed through the characters of the keys. I am finding that it is nice having a little light at the edge of the keys to sort-of outline the edges of each key when I have to hunt for one I don't use very often. So even that is a feature for me and it's almost perfect. Some people say they don't like the flexibility of it, but I think it would help make it more durable for travel as it will be less prone to cracking. A nice touch is the fabric on the back which keeps it from sliding away from me when on a smooth surface or my bedspread, couch, or anything else that a smooth plastic surface will slip on. It is also very quiet with just the right responsiveness, again for me. As for durability, quality of build, etc., I have been using it for about a week now and it hasn't changed. It still feels, sounds, looks and performs the same as when I opened it. I consider that great because I really love the feel, look, and performance so we will see how it holds up in time but so far I am very happy. I only charged it the one time when I first took it out of the box. Actually I don't think it needed charging but I just do that with new battery powered things, when I first get them. So no lag or anything different or sign of battery drain. If I remember I will post an update when I need to charge it to give you an idea of battery life. I should point out that I wasn't really looking for something with travel and portability in mind as it's for my tablet that stays at home so I wanted the keys to be large enough and not cramped together. I wanted a full size keyboard feel but I also don't need the # keypad. So this fills that role perfectly. Some people complain about units like this needing to be propped up for comfort. I do that but I understand that these are made with portability in mind so if you want to put it in a backpack or a case you will want it to be very flat, duh. So that is still a good thing as far as I'm concerned. as it takes up less space and I may want to take it with me in the future. Overall it's perfect for me but again YMMV so just consider your own needs and taste when reading other reviews.
Also a nice surprise that wasn't advertised was the little folding stand for your tablet. I didn't know what it was at first but it is an awesome tiny stand that folds down real flat and compact, perfect for travel. I had ordered a case with speakers that is now unavailable. So now I find myself using that stand a lot and I am now just shopping for bluetooth speakers. It is very adjustable for tilt angle as well.
Oh yeah, I did NOT get a free one or anything as compensation for writing a review. This is my honest, unsolicited opinion. Apparently some people get free stuff or something for writing a positive review so I thought I better mention that.
A Pleasant Surprise...
January 5, 2015
After a doing a decent amount on online research for a bluetooth keyboard for my Kindle Fire HDX, I came across this one and figured I would give it a try. I was intrigued by the option of the backlit keys and the overall dimensions seemed to be a perfect fit. Once it arrived, I couldn't have been more surprised! The size of the keyboard is just right and the backlit keys are in fact a great option. The initial set up and pairing of the keyboard with my Kindle Fire was seamless and took a matter of seconds.
The overall design and feel of the keyboard is great. The keys are very responsive and don't feel loose or weak at all. They are well spaced out and I have no issues at all having big hands. I am very pleased with the overall design and functionality as a whole. To top it off, the free tablet stand was a nice touch as well!
PROS: For the value & price, the design, features. & functionality are great. The dimensions are great for a person with big hands & the overall feel is not cheap in the slightest. The backlit keys are a great touch too!
CONS: None right now... I am very pleased and may be hard pressed to find any...
Better than expected
November 23, 2014
To start, I'm using this keyboard to type this review. So far, it's turned out better than I expected. The keyboard is very light but has a sturdy feel to it. It paired very quickly with a Dell Venue 8 Pro with Windows 8.1. All features work as described, including the backlight feature. I'll update this if I ever run into any problems or if anything changes in general.
Very unique, fun keyboard
April 27, 2017
Fun keyboard that turns heads. The keys are the style I like...not too clicky and springy, not too mushy. Now to keep the kids from stealing my awesome keyboard for themselves.....

April 12, 2017
Product works exactly as described. The shipping box was way too large for the actual box the keyboard came in and the shipping box was beat to hell when it arrived, but that isn't the sellers fault. I'm typing this review right now on said keyboard switching between the three different color settings with ease. Matches the blue back lights of my Nvidia Gforce graphics card perfectly.
Just as described
March 20, 2017
Works great. All 3 colors are visible from all the "cracks" and the spaces between the keys. Accidentally spilled coffee on the corner near the enter button where the number pad is, and unable to clean it soon enough was worried it would affect the lighting but amazingly it did not. All of the music related keys and home key work properly. Perfect for playing in the dark.
Great function, sleek colors. Readable keys.
December 5, 2016
It's a great keyboard, I love the color schemes, especially red. The red looks like lava, the blue like lighting or electricity, and the purple like energy or plasma. Love the pulse and cycle options, and the dimming option allows me to turn it off when I'm going to bed or going to be out a while. Not too loud, but the clicks are a little crisp. I like it, personally. The free mousepad was a nice touch, and larger than I expected. It's a little large for what I need, even with two monitors, but I have a large desk so it fits fine and looks sleek with my desktop and other peripherals, all of which are red on black. Great buy. 5 stars.
Lighting the way...
September 21, 2016
Purchased this keyboard to add some "coolness" to my desk (aka: wow factor). As people walk by my desk at work, the lighting catches their attention, and so I show it off and the three colors and fading effects. Now, I just need to trim out my work area with some neon strip lighting to give my desk the "Tron effect." I typically use a keyboard with split keys, considering my hands are so large and my fingers are so long. I was able to dance well on this keyboard with my fingers.To get this keyboard to work, just plug in the USB cord. Others have posted how to manipulate the lighting, so I won't repeat all of that. I did find that when I reboot my PC, my keyboard remembers what light color I used (with and without the fading enabled). You can set this keyboard to light up between orange, blue, or purple You can have it rotate through the colors as it fades from one to the other. An "always on" color can be set, and you can even just have your favorite color fade in and out.To provide some perspective of the bundle (keyboard with mouse pad), and to give you an idea of the lighting with overhead lights on, I've included some photos. Last night, a co-worker came into the office, and said "hey, your keyboard lit up your entire cubicle last night, and it lit up the ceiling as well." Yeah, it's rather vivid in the dark, but not to a blinding level. If you just to spice up your work/game environment, this accessory will do just that.
Great keyboard and it looks awesome
April 14, 2016
Great keyboard and it looks awesome. It's toward the loud end but not enough to really bother me or be noticeable. It has good spring back return on the keys. My only gripe is I have to change it back to solid blue every time I turn on the computer because my computer doesn't power the keyboard when it's off and it returns to its default solid red.
Four Star Reviews:
August 19, 2017
I enjoy the Jelly Comb keyboard. So far I have paired it with my Samsung Galaxy S6, Blackberry/android , Amazon Fire, and my Windows 10 laptop with no problems. It preforms well and is bright enough for me to work with no lights on in the room. It is very light weight and travels easily. My only complaint is the the keyboard has no feet or anything on its back to keep it from slipping. I corrected he problem myself and added some low profile rubber pads on the bottom of the keyboard. I have no problems with this keyboard and I use it when I am traveling and at home.
Not Quite a 5 but also Better Than a 4
April 11, 2017
Pros:-small, very lightweight and portable-rechargeable battery-backlight settings-easy pairing with devices-mostly good-sized keysCons:-a bit pliable-slides too easily on smooth surfaces-keys on the sides are too small-no ability to quickly switch devices-backlight doesn't stay locked (minor)In-depth review:Overall, I would give this a 4.5 if I could. This keyboard is fantastic for those who need a keyboard to slip in their bags and use with a tablet on the go. It is extremely lightweight, thanks in part to the fact it has a rechargeable battery as opposed to need AAA's, and so far has a very long battery life even with the the backlights on. Speaking of the backlights, the 7 colors are a great quasi-customization point, especially when on full brightness (some of the colors look similar when on the medium setting, but they are each very distinct once it's on full brightness). For the most part, the keys themselves are pretty easy to type on, with the smaller design not taking too much away from the ease of typing (although not completely). Also, it pairs fairly quickly with the Bluetooth-enable device of your choice.There are a few things that would make this closer to a 4 than a 5 for me. First is that it is a bit too pliable for my liking, meaning it could probably bend in half a little easier than one would hope, especially for something you would be putting in your backpack. It also slide far too easily on smooth surfaces due to the fact it has no rubber on the bottom to keep it stable while you type. While most of the keys are an acceptable size, some of the keys are far too small for my liking (especially the backspace key, which I use quite a bit when I'm writing, but that also includes the tilde and tab keys, for example). Another issue I have with this keyboard compared to other Bluetooth keyboard is the lack of ability to easily switch from one device to another. Although I can switch from one device to another in relatively little time, it's nowhere near as far as if you just have a switch or 2-key command on the keyboard to make that switch for you in seconds.One feature I wish this keyboard had to make the backlight option perfect would be if the keyboard would go back to the backlight setting you last had it on before turning the keyboard off/disconnecting it, but that's a more minor point.Overall, this is a great keyboard for those who are looking for an easy, compact keyboard to use with their tablets (as long as you have a stand!) and don't need to switch between devices too often.Also, a quick note on the stand issue, I contacted the seller and they said that currently, this keyboard will not come with a stand, despite what others are saying about receiving a stand with theirs, and they made this choice to keep the price point lower.
Don't charge it while using it
March 9, 2016
This keyboard is great! The keys have a nice feel and the backlight is wonderful. The only reason I can't give 5 stars is the "glitch" that makes you not want to charge the battery while using the keyboard. First of all, if you have the charger connected at the start, you can't pair the Bluetooth. Second of all, if you connect the charger after pairing, everything seems fine until the charging is complete, when the keyboard suddenly disconnects.You should still totally buy this keyboard. Just remember to only charge it while not using it. If you use it so much that the battery might be an issue, buy a second one. At this price it's a no brainer.
One thing I really like is the response of the keys when pressed
September 12, 2015
For the price, this keyboard can't be beat! Currently, I have it paired with a macbook pro. I can touch type at 70wpm and I haven't noticed any slow down while typing with this little gem. One thing I really like is the response of the keys when pressed. It feels almost exactly like my macbook pro. However, the keys are a touch smaller and a bit closer. Not a big problem for those who can type well on standard keyboards. On the unit that I received the LED lights on the pgup and pgdn keys are messed up. I had to give the keyboard four stars because when the keyboard is shining blue, those keys are an off yellow color. Probably a bad LED under those keys.Pros:PricePortability and small formLED backlights that are customizableCons:LEDs don't remember the last setting that was used. For instance, if your last setting was blue when you turned off the keyboard, it will automatically reset back to red on next power up. That's not that big of a deal for me, but may be for some.It's really plasticky.. but one could expect that at this price point.Overall, this is a great purchase for the price. I would recommend to a friend!
Don't let the name fool you, No jellies here!

I just "upgraded" to an iPad mini from a second generation iPad and needed a new keyboard. Previously I had used the Adonit Writer+, but the case/stand no longer fits the smaller iPad, naturally. You'll note in the image that they are essentially the same size in width and thickness, though the Jelly Comb is deeper front to back. There are, however, a number of features on the Jelly Comb keyboard that already make it a standout for me. First, the extra depth at the top of the keyboard provides a space for a useful set of controls and indicators--the on/off switch, the clearly labeled "Connect" button, and the lights for CAPS lock, bluetooth pairing, charging and power. The backlighting is a nice, customizable touch for typing in low-light situations, and the switchable functionality for iOS, Android, and Windows platforms is appreciated.
I have yet to do a lot of typing on the Jelly Comb, but here, too, it shines above the Writer+. The keys are just about the same size, though the top row function keys are a bit larger, as are the bottom row keys. The typing feel is more pleasant overall, and when I type the keys do not sink below the surface of the keyboard causing my fingers to very noticeably "feel" the sharp edges of the key cutouts. There is also not plastic standoff just below the spacebar for my thumb to catch on, as it did on the Writer+. As far as typing itself, I seem to be able to type quite well on this keyboard so far. I'm unlikely to write a novel on my iPad, but do spend a lot of time in meetings where this should prove useful.
As for cons, time will certainly tell about the quality of the construction. It is a little less rigid than the Writer+, I believe due to a different grade of metal. However, it does sit very stably on a desk. [Can't say that I'll ever need to access the insides, but I'm glad to see it is screwed together not glued.] The other con is less specific for this keyboard and more for this genre of keyboards, i.e. mobile keyboards not specifically limited to tablet cover integration. I really wish there was a case or hard cover to make for cleaner, more protected travel.
Does it's Job
June 19, 2017
It's lightweight, but stays in place. The design is nice, and it does it's job just fine. Although after around two months of owning it I find the lights go out at odd times, but it can always be fixed by just turning them back on.

March 28, 2017
At first it was kind of weird to get used to because the keys are very slick and sometimes I wasn't pushing the shift key down firm enough for it to register. Three colors to choose from and different modes like a pulsing and pulsing color change are fun to look at. I really like the huge mouse pad that came with it and I recommend it for a very cheaply priced but also good aesthetic

September 18, 2016
The keyboard works great but the included mouse pad was folded up in the packaging and now my mouse jumps around with the mouse pad at times when it gets near the crease from it being folded. The mouse is a R.A.T. 5. It also causes the mouse pointer to slightly move making the computer drag things instead of opening a file for example.
liked the keyboard with green was a color
July 1, 2016
liked the keyboard with green was a color. also kinda weak on the key coverings. two keys are having the black come off blurring the letter especially with the led on.
Not Bad At All
February 10, 2015
Cons: Lights have to be manually turned off for some reason. One of my keys was broken when I received this keyboard. Not a high end, sturdy, gaming keyboard but for the price it's good enough to get the job done. It's a little on the loud side, I know some people don't like that.Pros: Doesn't take long to get used to this keyboard. I type my homework on this keyboard without and issues and it works fine for games too. Cool points for adjustable colors (red, blue, and purple) and adjustable dimming. I really like the design and the level of brightness.I rated 4 stars because of the broken key... If I noticed the broken "N" key right from the unboxing then someone else should have caught it too at the factory.
Three Star Reviews:
it worked fine. but after 10min
August 25, 2017
couldn't get it to pair with PC- emailed customer support off their website. surprisingly, they offered a solution and it worked. BUT. had to return the item because the auto off was ridiculous. when it was turned on, it worked fine. but after 10min, it went to sleep and basically shut off completely even fully charged. so I had to turn the keyboard back off/on again and wait 2 sec for it to connect. I tried to deal, but it got annoying really quickly. maybe it was just the one I received so, 3 stars it is.
Sleep mode liked to confuse it
June 7, 2017
Meh, this little keyboard had its issues from the get go. The initial syncing to my PC took many tries. At the time I was using Windows 7. Sleep mode liked to confuse it. At times there was a pretty long delay to wake up. At times there was a long delay just to type. My couch wasn't that far from the PC. Used it mainly for internet browsing and even just that was frustrating at times.When the planets aligned and it worked ... well, it worked.I've since moved onto a wired keyboard and an extension cord.
Not my favorite
June 20, 2016
Unfortunately I was not happy with this product at all. First, when I got it, it was a lot smaller that I thought it would be, which is my fault for not researching better. The light up feature stopped working after a couple of weeks. I can live with that, it was just a cool novelty option for me. But the biggest problem was that when I would try to type, it would act like the key was stuck, even though it wasn't. I could plug it directly to my computer with a micro usb that I already had and this would sometimes solve the problem, but I needed to be wireless. I loved the sleek look of it and the feel of the keys when I typed but that is about it.EDITED!!!!!!!I am very impressed with the seller. After reading my review, the seller contacted me and offered a refund. I was unaware that they have a 100% money back guarantee. As I said, the product may not be one of my faves but the seller seems honest and actually concerned with customer sanctification, not just making money. That will go a long way with me and I will try future products from this company.
Awkward Key Placement
April 22, 2016
This product's key placement is more ideal for use with Mac than PC as it has two command (CMD) keys, but only one control key. One-handed keyboard shortcuts involving the CTRL key and the right side of the keyboard are difficult. I use one hand on the keyboard while drawing/designing in Photoshop and Illustrator. Many shortcuts such as CTRL+;, CTRL+I, CTRL+L, and CTRL+U, require two hands or a difficult stretch. On mac this isn't an issue as either of the two CMD keys can be used for those shortcut functions.The function key in the bottom left corner occupies an optimal spot for keys that are used more often and typically the home of the CTRL key. This may be common placement on compact apple keyboards, but it makes for difficult contortions with shortcuts such as CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+w.The backlight is great. battery life is fine. Bluetooth functionality is fine.
Great when it works, but it stopped working.
September 11, 2015
Okay, so, I was very excited to get this because I needed one and it seemed to fit the bill for a reasonable price.Upon arrival, I immediately started setting up. It didn't work. I couldn't get it to connect. I finally gave up and walked away from it because I needed to feed my kid. ;)When I got back to my computer, something had happened, and it worked! It worked so great, and I was SO excited. Closing my laptop (without shutting down, restarting, logging off, etc.) had no impact and was still able to use it upon re-opening the laptop. Hurray!Then, came time a day or 2 later that I had to restart my laptop. So I did. The keyboard hasn't worked since. Something happened to the bluetooth on my laptop with that restart (or because of the keyboard, I don't know.) Bluetooth was gone. After much frustration, I found where I could re-download the bluetooth drivers on my laptop. Phew. Got the bluetooth back.The keyboard finally re-appeared in my "devices" screen, but it still didn't work. I finally "removed" it from my device list, and waited a bit, and re-added it. It didn't want to work. Finally out of the blue it allowed me to enter in the pairing code. Then it said it didn't work for an unknown reason.Tried again, and it wouldn't let me try again. Removed it from the device list again, and again re-added it. This time it let me enter in the pairing code.It still wouldn't work to *use* though.When I right click on the keyboard in my device list, I can choose "trouble shoot problems" and it says it can't find any problem to troubleshoot, but I still can't use it.Then a couple hours later, it finally started working again. Phew! Great! ... and then it stopped. I have it fully charged, but I can't even make the lights come on once the power is on. (I turn on the power switch, the keyboard lights up, for those few seconds it's supposed to, but once they turn off, they're off. I can't turn them on, I can't type, I can't "connect"...One would think it must be my laptops bluetooth, but I also ordered a bluetooth mouse (again - the mouse configuration on my laptop is awful - I can't right click or do anything you're supposed to be able to do with a mouse with the built in laptop one.) But I also only have 2 USB ports, so just plugging something in isn't going to work for me. (I also need a pen tablet, the occasional external drive or SD card reader as well.In any case, my bluetooth mouse works great. Granted, I haven't tried re-starting the computer after having the bluetooth mouse installed, and I sure do hope that it will continue to work after I restart... when that time comes.I have no idea what else to do. Other than try to return it. :/
Has some flaws
January 24, 2015
Keyboard:This keyboard has a nice feel and is very lightweight and flexible. The backlight has 2 brightness settings and has 7 different colors to pick from. The backlight also shuts off after about 1 minute if not in use. Typing on this keyboard feels really nice and the keys have a nice travel distance as well as spacing between each other. Cool shortcuts and works well with my LG G3 (KitKat).Cons:- The keyboard does not work on Windows 7 devices and locks up while attempting to use on Windows 7.- No explanation found in manual with how to use the "iOS" "Android" and "Windows" functions located on the "Q" "W" and "E" keys.- CAPS light does not work. (Tested and confirmed. CAPS light does not light at all in contrast to the manual)- Bluetooth light only lights when in paring mode. After being paired, there is no light to indicate a connection.- Manual instructs you to "press" the power button, when it is not a button but an ON/OFF switch.- Keyboard has disconnected randomly at a couple times.- Keyboard does not keep selected backlight. Once powered off and then back on, the keyboard will light red regardless of whether you had it on another color or not.Tablet Stand:The stand is very slim and folds up nicely. It has rubber strips on the bottom to keep it from sliding. The stand also features 6 different angles.Cons:- None.
Has pretty loud feedback on button pushing

It's okay. Has pretty loud feedback on button pushing.
cool for the lights that's about it
October 30, 2016
I want to say get it..... I have had this for a couple months now and the keyboard is acting up also the button to take screenshots for games doesn't work fully because it's not a normal keyboard
works great, little hard to use in the dark
October 28, 2016
works great. I find it a little hard to use with the lighted lightening strikes all over it.
The light stays on all the time and can mess ...
January 27, 2016
The light stays on all the time and can mess with USB ports. It does have three colors, Red, Blue, and Purple. Just remember to shut the light off when your done working. Hold the Function Key Down, then press, Down arrow, Down arrow, Down Arrow. This will shut off the light.
This keyboard looks totally awesome! But
October 26, 2015
This keyboard looks totally awesome! But... the keys are very hard to see in the dark because of the cracked (or lightning?) pattern, which is ironic considering that's what made it look cool in the first place. The other issue I have is you really have to hit the keys in order for them to function. Especially the shift keys (both of them)... they have to be very deliberately pressed or they won't work.
Right keyboard, came in wrong box, probably not new
June 2, 2015
At first I thought I got the wrong keyboard. The box it came in is for a M200 Wireless keyboard by the same maker, and I almost sent it back, but decided to open it and inside was the CM200 Wired and it appears to be ok. Although I am definitely wondering if it's even new like it claims since it's not in the original box and the power cord appears to have dirt on it.
Two Star Reviews:

There is a lot to like about this keyboard. It has a nice feel, it is easy to pair, it has a rechargeable internal battery, it is small and light. But it has one overwhelming problem - key bounce. About one in four key strokes results in a double character. Youu can immagine hoow annnoyingg thatt muust be. I had to return it.

I would give this item 5 stars just for how much better it made life with my tablet. Imagine having Home, End, PageUp/Down, copy/paste, pause/play for your touch-screen device without having to touch or swipe all the time. No more swyping! It saves a lot of time and effort.I originally got a smaller KB, the same size as my 8" tablet, but that was too small. This one is still smaller than a regular keyboard, but the keys are spaced just fine for touch typing. I also like the extra row of function keys along the top. My smaller KB did not have that.The backlighting is a great feature. No need to turn on a light to type at night, like I have to do with my laptop. And, you can chose your favorite light color!Battery life is great, and you can use the KB while it is charging (unlike my $75 BT headset)The reason I have only given it 4 stars is because some of the characters are messed up in Android mode. " and @ are swapped. Backslash and hash characters send some other char's to my android device. i am sure with a little firmware tweek this can be straightened out in future versions.Overall, highly recommended if you are an old-school typer instead of a tapper.Update: I have lowered my rating because a) there where lots of multiple keystrokes entered. eg. 1234 may be entered as 1122234 b) several keys quit working after only three months.

It's cute but the light doesn't stay on for more than a second at a time making that function useless. When I click a random key the back light won't turn back on, you gotta memorize where that specific function button is if you're actually planning on using this in a low light situation. Buy the cheaper one with out the back light.
Product is really nice but...

I purchased this Jelly Comb Backlit Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 Keyboard for my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 inch Tablet. Unfortunately I wasn't able to keep this Bluetooth keyboard because of a couple of issues. First of all, I want to say this item is very well made and the keys have a very comfortable touch, the backlit feature works great. Pairing the keyboard to my tablet was a breeze, and works great in Android. My big issue was that CAPS lock LED indicator light that would not illuminate when I pressed the CAPS lock key. The other issue I had with this keyboard was that the function keys, F1...F12 would not respond when I held down the key combination, for example, Fn + F2. I couldn't insert any text in a cell while working in Excel using the keyboard which made it useless for my needs. None of the function keys worked when I tried this combination. The user guide that comes with the item only gives basic description of the item and its essential functions. If these negative issues were not present, I would have given it 5 stars.

I'm not happy with this product or jelly combs customer service. The Bluetooth constantly malfunctions I use it with an iPad. And I can't get the lights to change. I never know if it's charging when it's plunged in. Some key strokes do not register. I'm hoping its just mine and jell will send me a good one, I really like the style and portability, now if I could only get one that works.
Very Poor Range
January 31, 2015
This is a really nice looking keyboard for the price, the adjustable RGB backlighting is a great feature so I -really- wanted this to work. Unfortunately I was not going to be so lucky.The TL;DR is that this is a nice keyboard for short range only. In testing I found the signal to drop off after 3 or 4 feet. If you're using this for a tablet or phone, it will probably be fine as they keyboard will be very close to the device. I bought it to use as a remote keyboard for my PC when playing games using a projector and needed more than 3-4 feet of range. They claim 10 Meter (32.8 feet) range which was not the case in the unit I received. I tried it with multiple bluetooth transceivers on the PC and also with a couple of phones and never could I get more than 4 feet of range.Being curious, I popped this thing open to check out the design. The processor behind this is a Broadcom BCM20730 System-on-Chip which is a Cortex M3 processor and Bluetooth 3.0 transceiver integrated into one BGA chip which is mounted on a carrier PCB(printed circuit board), which is then mounted to the main PCB. They're using what looks to be a standard reference design for the BCM20730 carrier board, but that raises a couple of questions. The BCM20730 module is mounted atop the carrier PCB in the same plane, and the Bluetooth antenna is directly over the PCB of for the keyboard interface with traces running right under it. The reference design notes I found state that it should not have anything above or below the antenna section of the carrier board and certainly not other traces like in this design. Additionally the BCM20730 has programmable power output levels, and I question whether they have programmed the transmitter power output properly, or have greatly reduced the output and range to improve battery life. Without having a decent way to measure the RF output, I have no way of knowing, but standard Bluetooth 3.0 should have a range of 300 feet; to fall so short on the range is incredible. This would have been a very usable keyboard for PC or Home Theatre PC use otherwise.

May 29, 2017
The keyboard worked well initially, it's been a long time since I've used a non-laptop keyboard, so it took some time getting used to the slightly stiffer key.It was a solid 4 star keyboard until this afternoon when I sat down to start using it and found that the keyboard is loose on either side but still attached in the middle. I am trying to get it fixed and re-attached but I'm not having any luck.....

May 22, 2017
The only problem I've had so far with this keyboard is that sometimes my computer fails to recognize it randomly. I've never had any other problems with previous keyboards and it really screws up online gaming experience (League of Legends for example) when the keyboard suddenly is no longer working due to the computer not recognizing it.After unplugging and replugging maybe 5-10 times, then it'll finally work again.

I love the look of this keyboard but where it has its issues is when you hold down the shift key and press 123 in a row.. It will miss the number 2 everytime nearly. It apparently cant take to many keystrokes at once without missing one. Other than that it looks cool but is no longer in use for me.

April 28, 2017
I love the look with the options of the different colored lights so I can see typing in the dark if I can't remember where a fancy key is, but right off I discovered that the semi colon/colon key does not work, several numbers on the number lock side do not work, the i sticks and always puts at least two when typing and there is a space after letters when it is not actually pressed. I hate that it is so poorly made, that I can't use it like I would like to.
Cool concept cheaply executed
April 23, 2016
Should have known it wasn't a good idea to buy a gaming keyboard on the cheap. The 3 LED backlights are awesome, really the high point of this keyboard. Keys are very smooth on being pressed, really was ready to love this keyboard. Two things I haven't been happy with, and they're bad enough that I'm re-entering the gaming keyboard market:1) LEDs don't "stick". I like the blue lights best, but every time I turn my computer off I have to re-apply my color settings. This seems like a major oversight. No one wants to re-apply settings every time they turn their computer on...2) I've had the keyboard a little under a week, in that time it has gone unresponsive about a half dozen times, requiring me to physically disconnect the USB connection and reconnect the keyboard. It seems to be more problematic when plugged into the my monitor than the USBs on the motherboard, but it's way too often for a brand new keyboard to be having these issues.

Originally seemed great, colors are great each with 3 settings of color brightness. 'Q' key was damaged incredibly, could not type without random q's appearing in my sentences. Removed the key from the board and the actual board is damaged (not just the plastic button). I really wanted to like it, but this damage may have come from the shipping or the actual product. No exact way to know for sure.
One Star Reviews:
Died after 4 weeks
March 18, 2017
I liked this keyboard until it died, only 4 weeks after I received it. I started noticing a few days prior to then that there was a several second delay between the time I typed and the time the print appeared on the screen. I have a second Bluetooth keyboard which does not have that problem, so I know the problem was with the keyboard, not with my device. Then it just suddenly stopped working. It had been sitting idle for maybe 12 hours and just totally went dead. I tried switching it off and back on, but it wouldn't turn on. I'm returning it. Other than that, I had been happy with the keyboard. I liked the changeable backlight colors, the layout of the keyboard, and the key action. Perhaps I got a lemon.
Sleep function broken, interrupts in the middle of typing
January 11, 2017
This is the second Jelly Comb wireless keyboard I've purchased. My nephew loved the first so much that I purchased him one for his computer at home, and went with the light up colors because I was purchasing for a ten year old. Unfortunately this keyboard has been unusable, frequently going to sleep in less than 15 seconds, regardless of whether or not someone is typing on it or not. It is a pretty cool looking keyboard, but I really needed something that you could use to type on a computer.
Not for PC and Android
September 1, 2016
I think the color options are a little too colorful...The keys are fairly easy to use while typing.The function keys on this keyboard is pretty messed up for a keyboard that is trying to be able to fit all systems.Anyway, I tried all of the function keys when I connected it on my computer and the basic ESC key opens a browser instead of a canceling function. extremely not user friendly on this.Then when I use it with my note 3, none of the function keys work with or without holding the FN key. This time ONLY the ESC key works... I can't even use the BACK key... The arrow keys don't work properly... It stuck to a word underlined that is for auto correction and doesn't move away the blinker. What is this design?Then I emailed them for support as they tried to get better rating by doing so. They failed, because the email relied me was to suggest I TRY some instructions. "FN ＋F1 for backspace" F1 isn't even close to that... Then I was told to check the user manual which I already did before contacting them and the menu said so little.You can try Fn + F1 for backspace.For detailed function keys, pleas check the user manual about it.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

It doesn't work! I just got this keyboard today, and it worked fine right out of the package. It connected quickly, typed without any lag, and seemed like a really great purchase. I went to Netflix and watched a movie, and by the end of it, the keyboard had automatically disconnected "to save battery" (it doesn't seem like there's any way to turn this feature off). I pressed a key and waited for a few seconds (which the owner's manual told me to do) and it still wouldn't reconnect. I went to my Bluetooth devices list to connect from there, still didn't work. I tried recharging it, re-pairing it, I tried practically anything you could think of, and it still wouldn't connect. What bugs me even more is that this can't be wear and tear, since I ONLY GOT IT TODAY! This is NOT WORTH IT!Update 9/9/2017: Eventually, I managed to get the keyboard to work again, and I haven't run into that issue since. However, a few days ago, the keyboard just stopped working with no explanation. It doesn't turn on, or connect to anything. And I know for a fact that it's not because it's dead. I don't know why, but it just isn't working anymore. I'm sticking with my one-star rating.
Update - broken, 2nd one also died (Old review - Had to change Windows 10 default setting that randomly turns off Bluetooth)
June 12, 2016
Had to change Windows 10 default setting that randomly turns off Bluetooth to save power (even when laptop is connected to power). That solved random disconnect problem. It has a magnetic back which allows me to place it over the bad keyboard on my Dell Inspiron laptop. The magnetic back somehow keeps the Jelly Comb keyboard in place very nicely when just placed on top of laptop keys. I wish the color you select would become a default for next use, but that a minor detail. Keyboard light does not shine through keys, but provides just enough light to be able to read the keys in a dark room.Update - unit failed after just one week.Update - They sent replacement keyboard. Charged it. Used it 5 minutes, turned it off for night. Next morning, new one was dead.Did find a way to revive them for a while. When they will not charge, leave them on over night, even though they seem to be dead. Then the next morning they will charge and can be used again for a while. Strangely, they go dead even when left connected to charger while in use.
They don't last very long.
June 1, 2015
The first one failed in a day. The company was very good a replacing it, but the 2nd keyboard failed in 3 days. I bought a Logitech wireless keyboard K360, and I couldn't be happier with it. For my money, the Logitech is the way to go.
Cheap, broke, and not as advertised.
January 11, 2017
So I was excited to get this, but very disappointed.the keyboard is extremely cheap. When I took it out of the bag it was covered in machine oil and tacky. I wiped it down and plugged it in. There's about 3 led lights in the while keyboard so the lighting looks poor brighter in some spots. The worst part about it is only about 10 keys actually functioned. This was completely unusable. The return process went well. That's about all that was good about this transaction. Please don't buy.
