Far from perfect

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: 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: Got this for my Mac which is hooked up to my TV. I was using an RF wireless keyboard, but the connection got too much interference. Bluetooth is much better. The layout of this keyboard is a little off-center: the right third is taken up by the trackpad and home-pg down set. The trackpad works well.
Summary: This is a fairly nice keyboard for it's price, and I mainly bought it so that I could use it as n HTPC keyboard. In order to use this keyboard with a pc, you must first have a bluetooth dongle. I could imagine any would work. After the dongle is installed you must connect this keyboard to a playstation 3 in order to get the pin that you will then later enter when you sync the dongle and keyboard. at least I found it easiest to install this way.
Summary: The Logitech PlayStation 3 Cordless MediaBoard Pro makes using the internet on the PS3, just like on a PC. I tried the PS3 Wireless Keypad that attaches to a controller and I found it very hard to navigate and use. Setting up the Logitech PlayStation 3 Cordless MediaBoard Pro was easy, but the directions were wrong (there is no shortcut under Settings/Accessory Settings/Register BT Device). I went to Manage Bluetooth Devices to perform setup.
Summary: Everyone has already commented about the pros on this keyboard so I will not go into any more detail on that. There are several reviews that talk about this keyboard not having the L/R buttons. I would like to address those concerns. I assume most people want these buttons so they can go "back" and "forward" within the web browser. The PS3 has native support for this function when using a keyboard. Simply press "alt-left arrow" for back and "alt-right arrow" for forward.
Summary: I purchased this for my 12 year old son who had put the thumb keyboard that mounts on the ps3 controller on his xmas list. When he opened the keyboard he was sure what to make of it. A couple of days later and he loves the keyboad. It's so light and so easy to use and with a full keyboard it's much easier to use it for chats and messages. I'm having trouble 'homing' my fingers to the proper location.
Summary: PROS - Works well. Good range. - The built-in trackpad really makes things easier. - PRICE CONS - Left- and right-click keys by the space bar are useless to me, but they aren't necessarily a bad idea. I'd rather have a windows key though (or an option key if you own a mac) - Small trackpad. (of course, I'm used to a huge trackpad on my laptop - literally almost four times as big as the one on this keyboard.) I bought this one mostly because of its price.
