Summary: I bought this keyboard for my HTPC. I almost never use it because I have a remote control, but sometimes I need it to change something in the BIOS, or edit some file in the console using VI (ESC key is used a lot in VI). This would be the perfect keyboard for me if only it WORKED.
Pros: - Perfect size, weight, key distribution (except for swapped Fn and Ctrl) - Mousepad is perfect size sensitivity, etc. - Keys material feels good
Cons: -Keyboard was defective almost from the beginning. ESC, F1, etc. don't work. - Range is not so good - Receiver is huge
You Can't Change every Neighbor's Router Settings !

Summary: Touchpad fails, to varying degrees, 40% of the time. I ran a few tests. If I ever live far from any neighbors, I'll try this product again.
Pros: Laptop keyboard-like experience, accept for the touch pad
Cons: Touch pad glitchiness makes it useless. I'm calming down from the idea of breaking it over my knee and returning it today. If reconfiguring the local wifi settings is all which is required to get the link to work "silky Smooth"... then I can't reconfigure every neighbor's router for 300 feet in e...
Summary: this keyboard worked well at first, but the mouse pad stops working after a while. so, i returned it and got another, but the letter 't' on the 2nd wasn't working. so, i returned that one and the mouse pad on the 3rd stopped working as well.
Summary: It *may* work well for some people, by chance, because of their particular circumstances. However, it's not a reliable general device I'd want to have to count on out of the box. I'm very tolerant and generally find some use for marginal equipment I end up with, but it's not worth the lost effort...
Pros: Good packaging. Lightweight. Sturdy.
Cons: Extremely directional (approx 20 vertical degrees of deflection, haven't tested horizontal deflection), so you must point it carefully at the USB receiver. Constantly in a state of "barely connected" with many missing keystrokes, re aiming, and retyping. Also, frequent inadvertent key repeating (...
Cons: The ideal use for this keyboard would be for a HTPC. I've had this for a while now and having that USB receiver sticking out the front of the case because it doesn't receive the signal in the back makes for high stress when my daughter's playing in the living room. Tracking on the pad is highly i...
Summary: When I first tried to use this keyboard I had it laying flat on my lap. I tried several distances and angles to the laptop. The keyboard hardly responded at all. Finally, I figured out that if I put the legs down and get the front of the keyboard in the air it picked up much better.
Summary: I'm so happy I get to pay return shipping twice on the piece of junk.
Pros: Great idea, nice form factor, would be great for htpc.
Cons: Absolute Junk -Poorly put together, falls apart. I don't think it's QC, just poorly made/designed -terrible range. -disconnects frequently RMA'd the first one: Connected the dongle while sitting on the carpet next to the computer, reached over and placed the flat of my hand on the keyboard and sl...
Pros: Great form factor, wireless range - 1 Egg earned.
Cons: Broke after 8 months, the mouse pad went nutso. Sent back for RMA, GOT A REPLACEMENT THAT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. Lost 2 eggs. Now I get to pay for shipping all over AGAIN and take more time to send back another piece of their junk. Lost 2 eggs. Let's hope the next one I get, now worth about $120 w...
