Summary: If the smallest particle of anything gets on the track ball, it goes nuts. Must take the whole keyboard apart to clear. Also keyboard is just a tad smaller than standard and it is hard getting used to the new layout. Bought for better ergonomics. Not the one.
Excerpt: Its hard to find a small keyboard that has enough room to be able to use all the keys without hitting unintended keys. But this keyboard has enough room to make it more that adequate to use on a daily basis.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Great Features, Highly Compatible, Reliable Performance
Summary: I have been using this keyboard for about 1 half years and works really good, use in my car computer and it's the best from all of the ones I try even some of the mini wire ones, the only thing is to make sure you face the ir trams.
Summary: Just wanted to point out it does work with Linux. At least with Debian Etch. Maybe the other reviewer had a faulty unit?
Pros: Look, you're not considering this item for daily use. It is what it is. I found it to be exactly what I was after. A small keyboard with built-in mouse that I'll keep tucked away in a small enclosure for use once a year. I installed Debian Etch on a machine with it attached, and with nothing furt...
Cons: Track ball is a little noisy in use. I think I read in a description it is an optical track ball, but I don't think so.
Summary: I have been using this keyboard for over 6 months and what can I say. I am ''impressed'', never lost a keystroke, long battery life, just changed them after 6 months. Range is excellent, use it 17 feet away from my home theatre PC.
Cons: Tech Support is terrible. Can only be used as a Keyboard in linux, Called Tech Support and after 1 hour on hold the tech (Who spoke very poor english) said there was no linux support for this keyboard and hung up. The Keyboard actually works in linux but the built-in TrackBall does not.
