I got this keyboard as a quieter, nightly replacement to my Cherry MX Blue keyboard, since it kept waking my GF(and hell hath no fury).
If you've ever used an Apple wireless keyboard and wanted one for your PC, or maybe you weren't happy with its use on a Mac(since this is Mac compatible), and wanted a different take- this is sure to please. The Microsoft Arc(typing on it right now), has a slight ergonomic bend that is much kinder to the eyes than it looks in pictures, and provides a slight adaptation to your hands' natural angle that is left unchecked by most other keyboards. It takes a slight amount of getting used to, as with any new keyboard, but once you've got the hang of it, you'll love typing away at its soft scissor switches. It's strange because the backspace and enter keys, though also scissor switches, have a *much* more satisfying click to them than the Apple keyboard, which I also own, and which I have also spent years(literally) on.
It's a great keyboard, simple as that. It's not noisy, types like a dream, is very stylish(again, moreso than the pictures would make you believe), has *fantastic* build quality, no loose or bendy parts, it sits comfortably on any surface and doesn't slide around. It is very mobile, comes with volume controls, and has all the bells and whistles you'd probably desire.
For gaming, it's touch and go. You could get better keyboards specifically for gaming for cheaper, so I wouldn't recommend it- but if you were just looking to game occasionally using this keyboard, it's perfect. I've played hours of CS:GO on it(competitive gaming) and its performed perfectly. No input lag whatsoever, and that is using the front USB jacks.

I'm a little biased since I got this on a daily deal for R480 I think, so at that price it's a complete and utter steal. Whether or not R669 is justifiable for you for a keyboard is going to depend between person to person. If you plan on using this keyboard a lot, then yes, it is objectively sensible. If you're using it as an off-keyboard or rarely, I'd say R669 is a little too steep, so maybe look at some alternatives.
But 9/10 times the price should be warranted, depending on your situation.

Excellent purchase. Small and compact without compromising on the function and feel. I love the fact that it fits perfectly into laptop bag!I have neck and shoulder tension from laptop use and since raising my laptop and using this keyboard the pain is gone.

Its fairly small.
Nobody's fault but mine, but it doesn't have a keypad, which is irritating but which I suppose I should have picked up before I bought it.

This is a great little keyboard. One thing to take into consideration though before you buy this is the compact bottom-right arrow key all-in-one solution. It can at times get a little frustrating navigating a text document using them.

Awesome stuff, works great, looks great, feels great, serves its purpose, no complaints...

Overall very nice keyboard. Up/Down/Right/Left button isn't as annoying as I thought. Nice that it's got a dedicated Home, End, PgUp, PgDn buttons but I would have preferred to have them where the volume buttons are. Since using the KB, the amount of "missed" hit keys have increased - most likely because the keys require you to press down perpendicular to the surface. The enter key is the most commonly "missed" key due to it's location on the KB.
