Far from perfect
18 February 2014
Summary: Pros - Does exactly what it I wanted it to do: replace the on-screen keyboard for my PS3. - Setup was easy. It took me longer to open the package it came in than it did to setup. - Comfortable keyboard. Keys have a lot of travel and don't feel wobbly at all. - Trackpad is very convenient. - Prt Scr key takes a screenshot. Cons (nothing too severe, just personal nitpicks) - Feels a little cheaply made.
Summary: My only wish is that it had a "right click" or "context menu" key and a "super" or "windows" key...but considering it's made for a game system I guess that'd be too much to ask. I absolutely LOVE that it has the same key layout as a normal PC keyboard - a feature most "laptop/tablet bluetooth keyboards" lacked. I've used this for my Android phone and my desktop computer both worked flawlessly both keyboard and mouse. Yes, a mouse to browse the web on an Android phone!.
Summary: I bought this keyboard before I even had a PS3. I read that it works well with bluetooth-equipped computers and wanted this to use on the couch with my media center computer. I've got a custom built HTPC running Windows 7. I used an old bluetooth dongle and had this thing connected within about 5 minutes of messing around with the settings. This is a great keyboard, most importantly having the trackpad on the right side.
Works great with Windows 7 for your HTPC/Media Center

Summary: Let me preface this by telling you I don't own a PS3. I use this keyboard to operate my media center computer running Windows 7. It connects to your PC via Bluetooth, if your computer isn't capable of Bluetooth, pick up a $8 dongle off the interwebs somewhere. I love having one simple keyboard to run my media center. I don't need a wireless mouse and keyboard sitting on the coffee table. I have used this keyboard for over a year now and only replaced the batteries once.
Summary: Initially bought for the PS3, but used it rarely since the PS3's web browser is so bad. Decided to see if it would work with my iMac and my iPad. Worked with both. Trackpad works great on iMac, too. Recognized very quickly by my new iPad 2. I am actually using the keyboard and my iPad 2 to write this review!
Summary: I recently purchased the Logitech Mediaboard Pro keyboard for my Playstation 3 because I was tired of inputing text through the controller. I love the keyboard. It synced immediately to my playstation and the controls are great. The only thing that I wish it had was a playstation button. When I am in Netflix, I have to use my BD remote control to exit from the application. If they were to add a playstation button, then the keyboard would be 100% great.
Summary: Awesome keyboard!! I have no problems with it. I mostly use it for online play on LittleBigPlanet. You do need batteries for it but it works great!! the only problem I have with it is that when I want to put on the "@" it gives me the " icon insted. other than that this is a great buy and I highly recommend this to anyone who has a PS3.
Great bluetooth keyboard/trackpad - NOT just for PS3

Summary: Love it! Not too light, not too heavy. Runs on AA batteries (works fine with rechargeables). Has a full-size keyboard and a standard-sized trackpad WITH a scrollbar that is very helpful. Works great with PS3. Also works great with my home theater PC running Windows 7. Sits nicely on lap. If you want a bluetooth keyboard with trackpad for PS3 and HTPC at a very fair price, look no further.
Summary: I bought this to use as a keyboard for my HTPC running Linux Mint 9.10. It works great after an hour or so of me trying to figure it out. If you are purchasing this it won't work right out of the box. YOU NEED BLUETOOTH CAPABILITY ON YOUR PC. It does not come with a dongle. You need to provide it. I was so used to wireless keyboards and mice that came with their own dongles that this escaped my mind.
