    Nope. Knew exactly how it was before I bought it.

    No. It's not perfect, but neither is any other touch keyboard I've tried. With only so much space, something is always one step further away than you want.

    Not at all! If I have a lot of typing to do, it's easy to just put the BT keyboard on and just type from that but I have to be honest, it would take a lot of writing for me to do this. So no, it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    I'm considering whether it's worth buying a BT keyboard, and leaning towards no, so it must be alright!

    I'm OK with it, but sometimes find it a bit touchy.

    Hey, I like a keyboard that's sensitive and in touch with me.

    I have learned to really like the touch keyboard. Now that I'm using all the shortcuts I've learned here, I never use the keyboard I bought. But I don't have to type documents.

    Hate it. But I've never found a virtual keyboard I do like. Swype and Swiftkey are excellent phone keyboards (available on Android devices) but phone keyboards don't translate well to tablets the size of the iPad. Any typing of more than a few sentences and I pull out the bluetooth keyboard.

    No. I have a BT keyboard, but rarely use it.

    Hee Hee. Lol. I slap it occasionally especially when it zooms and freezes.

    I like the size and responsiveness. The only issue I have is not having the characters I want available when I need them. Having to double-tap, bring up ssecondary menus/screens, whatever - its a little bit of a hassle. I suppose its also something that I need to get used to since Ive only had the unit for about 10 days!

    Its a minor annoyance though... very minor. Overall, it works well.

    I struggled some at first, my first touch screen anything. I soon tried various styli and found a huge difference. I now use a stylus
    that has a soft and fat tip and I can type very fast with few missed letters. I paid way too much for the first one after an eBay
    search for "premium stylus" but since have found other sellers with the same item @ 8 for an .01¢ starting bid. They come from
    Hong Kong and make a tiny profit in the shipping fee but still cost less than a dollar each. I found that most styli out there have a
    'too firm' tip. The bulbous air-filled soft tip works wonderfully. I am totally disabled and spend almost all hours in bed and write
    profusely.

    Tried that, too. But attaching 10 styluses to my fingers turned out to be a hassle.

    What's key for me is size and I find it quite adequate and easy to quickly type with both hands or at least two fingers.
