Summary: Good-feeling keyboard with a well-behaved track pad. Does what it's supposed to, and it's got good range. Nice-looking, lightweight and slim - but big enough for large adult hands. I haven't had any problems with key placement or functions.
Summary: Bought this for my HTPC. There are a lot of dead zones. When you find a place where it works (for me, this was on my coffee table) it works perfectly. However, simply moving it an INCH from that spot would cause it to drop out completely. There were some strange dead zones. For example: 3 feet directly in front of the receiver would just not work, however move 6 inches to the side and it's fine.
Pros: - No problem with how it works - ON/OFF switch on the keyboard
Cons: - Expensive - Dead zones - Wireless interference - Range (stops working around 10 feet)
Summary: You would waist your time if youu looked for otherr keyboards after finding this one.
Pros: Everything about this keyboard is perfect. Was looking for a keyboard that was like a laptop keyboard and this was one of the only ones I was able to find after much searching on the internet. I have plugged this keyboard into many devices and it has been compatablel with every single one so far and works perfectly every time. It is super thin but yet enough room to comfortably fit both hands while typing. The range may not be 30ft but it is pretty far and I have neve...
Cons: I can honestly say I don't have much to say bad about this keyboard it does everything I need it to and has lasted me many years.
Summary: I've heard 2 reviews that brag about the long range. One review said he was using this at 10 feet away and the other review said it's good for 30 feet. It's possible that using low quality batteries affect the range. I am going to try new batteries and see if that helps.
Pros: I put the included batteries in, and fired it up. The keyboard feel is very good. The keys are easy to push, and yet they click and have a very refined feel to them. This is the best keyboard I've ever typed on.
Cons: The range is about 3 to 4 feet which makes the wireless interface pretty pointless. Beyond that it stops working completely. I was excited to use this for home theater. I thought maybe I could sit at the couch and use my plasma TV as a monitor, but so far, there is no way that would work.
Summary: Increase the distance for long range users and I'm in!
Pros: I love the mouse touchpad on the keyboard. This keyboard reminded me of the IBM laptop keyboards.
Cons: I needed for an application that would require communication closer to the 30 foot range that's advertised, but when I recieved the keyboard and set it up, I could only get about 12 feet away before the keyboard started loosing communication. I had the keyboard in direct line of sight to the usb dongle during this test. Had to send mine back as it was just too short range for my needs.
Summary: To make this better: - Make a wider version with a proper num pad - Add more laptop-style "Fn" Function Keys - browser, calculator, email - Add Multimedia function buttons - Lights for num and caps lock. - Better positioning of Home/End/Ins/Del/Pg Up/Pg Dn Keys - back-lit or illuminated keys Over all - I prefer this keyboard to a similar Rosewill I own, simply for the scroll wheel built into the pad.
Pros: Wireless, good wide touch pad w/ built in scroll wheel functionality, decent battery life. Comfortable to use, fairly quiet, low profile keys. Got this to replace an old PS2 wireless desktop (kb & mouse) I was using for my living room PC, does the job quite well.
Cons: Lacks multimedia buttons, And the only "Fn" function key is for num lock. No status lights, you have to guess whether Num and Caps are on, or install software to display that info in the system tray. Must also change your BIOS setting for Boot-up Num Lock to off, or it will illicit much cursing. Built in num pad is kind of awkward, especially if you have to switch back and forth between normal typing and using a num pad. I bought this at my local Walmart for $75 + tax...
Pros: I wanted a wireless keyboard with the same kind of mousepad as a laptop. This product was exactly what I wanted & is one of the few on the market. Its range does the job for me, so no problems there. I use it several feet away in conjunction with a projector, as well as an alternative keyboard to my desktop. I was very impressed that it immediately connects to the computer--no lag time at all. Plug in the usb, turn it on, and it works. No software installation, nothin...
Cons: Occasionally the mouse can be a little squirrely, but it's not a big deal.
