Summary: I bought this keyboard to resolve neck and shoulder pain. It did the trick. It did take a little getting used to but well worth it to no longer have the pain in my neck and shoulder from using a mouse.
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. Glidepoint software does not recognize integrated touchpad, so I could not customize the buttons, corner tap or gestures. There is no help on Adesso website for this problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled Glidepoint and then gave up.
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. Ergonomics are not great, but that's partly because I am not used to it yet and I often switch back to the laptop keyboard. Works as promised.
Summary: the soft touch keys and the size were very nice. the touchpad however was erratic, would work backwards sometimes all on its own. sometimes it would skip all over the place. i returned it for a full refund.
Excerpt: I ordered this product under the impression that it was wireless. It arrived very quickly which is a plus, however I would not have bought the product had I known it was wired because there are multiple cheaper products on the market in a wired sense. I am very unhappy with the purchase as I feel the ad was misleading. But again, on a good note, there was no software or learning curve.
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.
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 clicking of the mouse.
Serviceable in Windows 7 - Permanent Vista users stay away!
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 Windows with it because the output initially was just plain randomized gibberish - I had to hook up my wireless mouse and open the on-screen keyboard just to log in and launch the...
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 being able to hit the Enter key while still mousing with the ring finger. Soft and quiet keys are a huge plus with this board - I am used to loud keys that need to be smacked ...
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 because you simply dont get that here. Has a function key but has no display extender toggle key assigned, which is definitely one of the bigger inconveniences for me with my mul...
