  • Summary: Great price in bundling up mouse and keyboard together. I had to plug in old keyboard and this keyboard to set up on my XP. After setting up, keyboard is recognized without any problem.

  • Summary: I wanted both a numberpad and an off-centre touchpad for data entry on my laptop. This was the only keyboard offering both those. It has worked fine so far (2 weeks). Zero hassle instal.

  • Pros: I've owned this keyboard for 11 months. It's nice to have both mouse and keyboard combined.
  • Cons: I don't know if its low humidity and static but I have to unplug and replug the device almost daily because the device locks up.

Great keyboard!

John M., Newegg
20 February 2011
  • Summary: Mine works fine so far, so I have not had to contact customer service for anything. I wrote this review using this keyboard and am still very satisfied. No more mouse needed, so less clutter on the desktop : )
  • Pros: Quiet scissor keys are just what I was looking for. Also the integration of a touchpad makes navigation on the PC a completely quiet experience. I switched from a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Wireless Keyboard and Mouse 7000 and I have not missed it really all except the ergonomic part.
  • Cons: I wish someone would make an ergonomic keyboard with the scissor action keys and touchpad. Then I would be completely satisfied. For someone who does a LOT of typing, I do miss the curvature of the old keyboard on occasion. But it is worth the tradeoff to reduce the noise on the keys and the clic...

Touchpad issues

  • Summary: Used this keyboard with Windows 7 34 bit. The touchpad stops working constantly and you have to unplug and replug keyboard. Nice keyboard, but not worth the constant hassles.

Serviceable in Windows 7 - Permanent Vista users stay away!

N/A, Mwave.com
13 October 2010
  • Summary: The biggest issue for me was the huge flip-flop between Vista and Windows 7 the bad start leaving too bad a taste in my mouth to warm up to it just yet. In Vista, it was particularly awful trying to set up because you couldnt hot-swap it wouldnt respond if you tried and you could barely start...
  • Pros: Keyboard is fairly light, thin, and aesthetically neutral - nice looking, but not too flashy. I am still getting used to the arrow keys being displaced as a result beneath the right Shift key, but all in all, I am a huge fan of the placement of the touch-pad - this board knows/shows the value of ...
  • Cons: Touch-pad is definitely just a tad smaller than it really should be for this size of a keyboard. Also, the vertical scroll on the right side of it definitely takes a little more patience than the same feature on more modern laptop PC touch-pads - do not expect an HP / Altec Lansing equivalent bec...

  • Summary: When I first used this on my 64 bit Version 7 system it worked well and the keys are well placed and the compact design works well on the desktop. However at times trying to step between open programs using the alt tab.

Slim Touch Keyboard

  • Summary: Experiencing a few problesm with the touch pad and my operating system. Sometimes the keyboard or the touch pad freezes - and you have to re-boot they system. Whe the keyboard is working it is very nice to have everything in one central location. Worth the money?

Adesso has redeemed itself

Linsey M., Newegg
13 November 2009
  • Summary: There aren't a lot of options for keyboards with touchpads, and this is a decent one if you're willing to take the gamble.
  • Pros: The second keyboard I received from Newegg is working fine after 24 hours. It has all the benefits I mentioned in my earlier review: convenience of having the touchpad right there, decent feel.
  • Cons: The first keyboard I received died after an hour. A few days later, I got it to work again, but it died again. I got the Windows error message that the device had malfunctioned.
