Customer Reviews:

  • Good Media Center keyboard
    I love trackballs and I wanted one integrated into a keyboard and this fit the bill perfectly. It was plug-and-play on both my Windows PC and also on my Mac. It's a great gadget and I would give it a "5" except in my subjective opinion, it's a little tough to type on...the keys feel heavy and I often found myself veering off of the home keys and typing gibberish. But I have recommended it to friends and plan on buying several more. It's just so well designed and functional.......more info
  • review
    This is what I was looking for in functionality so me meets that criteria. It is generic looking and feeling. Seems to work at a good distance.

    The thing that brings it down is the fact that I have to reconnect to the receiver everytime I reboot. I want to be able to turn on the computer and not have to sync them to get it to work. It should automatically just connect and work....more info
  • Digg'n it!!
    Just started using this keyboard and so far really impressed with it. Had an older (not used) laptop, hooked it up to the 42" and am enjoying being a couch potato even more... Shipping was excellent (2days w/super savor). No issues....more info
  • wonderfull wireless keyboard
    I have been using this keyboard for two weeks now and I would only say that I would highly recommend it. The scroll and roll functions like for the keyboard to be level. Other than that it works flawlessly....more info
  • Loved It
    Let me say that I have tested other products around this problem and this solved many issues. First issue with many wireless products is the products necessity for line-of-site with the antenna. This was not a problem. The antenna is actually behind my entertainment center, so it is out of sight and still works well. The other problem is the ability to work around other magnetized products. I have the antenna squarely in back of some speakers and right next to them. The antenna on other products need to be removed from the area around other electronics. The antenna to this product sits right on my computer in back of my television. Works great! The other problem with other wireless products is the range. For my purposes this works fine. I'm about 15 feet away from the monitor and it works well. Works at a greater range than anything I have previously owned/tested.

    Was a little concerned with the minimal setup directions, but no directions are really needed. The number lock button on mine was pressed in when I got it, which caused some confusion, but once I figured that out, I was on my way.

    For someone who has been disappointed by about 3 or 4 different brands and devices to solve this problem, this was a big relief. I'm sure these types of products willl grow in popularity so it was also disappointing how little product testing information in this area there is. Hope this helps.

  • Keyboard works, trackball.....not so much
    I purchased this keyboard for a client of mine and it worked for her. I installed it (syncing it to the receiver) about 10ft away and didn't have problems with signal strength. The trackball (mouse) is terrible on this thing. It pretty much does not work at all. Even setting it right next to the receiver did not help at all. IMO its completely useless, so if you want to use it for a mouse replacement look elsewhere or purchase a separate one.

    One thing that confused me was I could not type on the right side of the keyboard correctly. Whenever I did it would put numbers instead of letters. I would have to hold the fn button while I used the keys on the right. Later, I figured out that it was because the numlock was turned on by default (on this computer anyway) so all I had to do was press fn + numlock to disable it. Than I could type normally without holding the fn button the whole time (which was a major pain).

    The main reason I got this no-name brand keyboard was because I required a narrow wireless keyboard to fit in small area and this was the only one I could find that was under $180........more info
  • This is the one you're looking for
    I scoured the web to find a quality keyboard/mouse combo for my HTPC. This product works exactly how you want it to. The trackball is responsive and the form factor is comfortable. It plugs right into a free USB drive and off you go.

    I highly recommend this keyboard in terms of function. The price is competitive as well....more info
  • Great Keyboard
    I just got this keyboard a week ago. After a week usage, it works perfect for my HTPC. I read some negative feedback and was worry about the quality of this keyboard. However, I guess the manufacturer fixed the problem. ...more info
  • Eats batteries like crazy!
    Functionally, this is a nice little keyboard. I bought it to turn a second computer I owned into an internet web surfing platform for my 42" LCD in the living room. I plugged in the USB stick into my Vista computer and it worked instantly. The problem with the battery cover mentioned elswhere here is very true. There is not enough room designed into the battery compartment to accommodate some slightly larger circumference AA batteries. In any case, the big problem with this keyboard is that it eats batteries like crazy! There is apparently some battery drain no matter if you are using the keyboard or not. After going quickly thru a 12-pack of quality alkaline batteries I bought 4 rechargeables. I need to buy 4 more. The keyboard runs thru a charge on these in a little over a day or two. If you are thinking of purchasing this product, I highly suggest doing the same. One other thing worth mentioning is, that the keyboard sometimes comes on with the NUM LOCK engaged, which may drive you crazy when you don't get the characters you expect when typing on it....more info
  • Looks Good, and works great!
    I bought it so that I could surf the web on my 42" flat screen from my futon. It allows me to be lazy and proactive at the same time!...more info
  • Htpc Wireless Keyboard
    This keyboard has been great so far. The range is good and having the mouse built into the keyboard is what I was looking for. I use this for a PC I have in my living room, and it works great for laying on the couch and using the PC. Using the track ball and scroll wheel take a little getting used, but it didn't take long....more info
  • So far so good
    It work so far very nicely - 3 weeks.

    It is very comfortable to use, the wireless range is good.

    If it will last for years it is a good deal

  • All You Need!
    I wanted something to be able to surf the web from my bed on my 50" Plasma. This is all you need! Nice and compact. Very Solid construction. The track ball works very well for a mouse. has great range never loses signal no matter where I am in the room. Sleep timer is great for saving bateries, just push any key to wake it up and resume. has all the shortcut (volume, track forwared, play/pause, internet navigation, back buttion etc) keys you need. Best wireless keyboard for the money. I'm glad I did my research! Buy it today!...more info
  • Great Wireless keyboard.
