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: 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.
Summary: I bought this keyboard to use with a Home Theatre PC. I've been looking for keyboard/mouse combination for some time now and surprisingly there are only few products out there ideal for HTPC set up. This keyboard/touch pad is perfect for HTPC. The keyboard is sturdy yet very light. Works perfectly in all applications including BIOS tweaks (may be dependent on Motherboard). I'm using it on a WinXP SP2 machine running Meedio and BeyondTV. The range is very good.
Summary: I bought this when I bought my PS3, and I have to say, it is wonderful. there are so many things on the PS3 that simply require a keyboard to be usable, and this is (in my opinion) a much better alternative to the clip-on controller keypad. If I have one gripe, it is that there are no keys defined as "select", "start", or the "shoulder buttons" (L1, R2, etc.
Summary: I would agree with many that the keyboard could use a few extra keys. I too was suprised it is "standard" size for a keyboard. But overall, it functions as it should, it's a keyboard. And a heck of a lot better than using the PS3 controllers. Sync's up instantly. Easy to use. Responds correctly and quickly. Happy!
