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.
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. I wish it have music controls
Pros: Keyboard is small and seems to work well (I've used it with Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7)
Cons: Trackball dies VERY quickly - sent back and got a new one, it died in less than 2 weeks - sent back and got a third - trackball was DOA - I bought a separate trackball. Wouldn't purchase it again.
Pros: This keyboard and trackball combo is great for small spaces. My company uses it for a rackmount & KVM setup. We have a PS/2 only KVM, so this was a perfect match. The keyboard is simple and doesn't have any extra unnecessary keys. We have a multi-platform setup and we have got this to work under ...
Cons: If you are not used to a trackball, it might take some getting used to. We are not in front of the servers all the time, so it's not a big deal.
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. Keys are comfortable and the trackball and buttons work great
