Just my experience with the driver on the 770. It's far more stable
than it used to be, for whatever reason. The keyboard itself is not
the best quality, some keys do require quite a bit of force to be
registered. There is some lag, akin to a ssh session over a modem
perhaps and on the rare occasion the keys do repeat. Having said all
that however, I can type reasonably quickly with it, certainly much
faster than the on screen keyboard. I have yet to test it for extended
