Summary: Pretty good device. I like the pad opposed to track ball designs. Everything works very well. I turn the power switch on the bottom off when not using. But I have noticed that if I start a movie in Media Center and turn it off, sometimes it triggers options like it would if you do a right click on a...
Pros: -Nice Design -Simple to use -Works as expected -Slim and lightweight
Cons: -IR device needs to be in front of media pc -Takes a few seconds for PC to acknowledge after turn on (very minor) - When turn off it sometimes triggers Vista options
Summary: This is the best option fot a HTPC. Everyone that has used it has liked it. I've droped it twice on wood floors and it still works perfectly. the only downside is that the connection tends to be easily interupted by big objects.
Pros: Lightweight but not really cheap feeling, Great layout with touch pad an mouse click buttons, has hotkeys for internet, email, my computer, calculator, media center, and all media control hotkeys i.e. play, pause, stop, etc...
Cons: The connection seems kinda iffy at times but its not something that bothers me much, A bit pricey
Summary: I was needing a small, light, compact, all in one keyboard/mouse/trackpad combo to control my HTPC. It needed to look cool sitting on my coffee table, but also be funtional to control my computer from the couch. This fits the bill and works great for my needs.
Pros: Light, compact, all in one design, nice looking. Installed easily, plug-n-play. range is good, works anywhere in the room. Lots of windows hot keys.
Cons: touchpad is very sensitive and sometimes the cursor jumps around on the screen. plastic does seem kinda cheap, so I hope I never drop it. The usb receiver if very cheaply made so be careful with it. The quality of the parts causes me to remove one egg.
Summary: It's a nice keyboard for what I use it for " HTPC". All hot keys work in Vista 32. I gave it 4 eggs for mostly the sensitivity of the mouse pad. Would I recommend this Yes I would.
Pros: Light weight, plug and play, batteries included. Nice hot key buttons. Volume controls. I like the mouse pad on one side and the left / right buttons on the other side. It helps while you hold the keyboard with both hands. On / off button so you don't drain the battery.
Cons: Very sensitive mouse pad. Will take time to get used to. Black surface shows smudges. The keyboard materials are kinda cheap feeling.
Summary: I purchased the WKB-4000US last year and loved that keyboard. Unfortunately after a full glass of juice soaked the keyboard, it stopped working. That keyboard took a ton of abuse, from being dropped to sat on. I enjoyed that keyboard and this one is 10 times better in terms of functionality.
Pros: Best keyboard for media centers. Keys are nice and the scroll pad works great. The extra function keys are a very nice added touch. This keyboard conserves its batteries by going to sleep when not in use, to wake it up, just press any key and its instantly working again. I have no problems with r...
Cons: Only a couple of down sides to this keyboard, but not enough to deter buying it: the delete key is not in the standard position; the left and right mouse button keys are not located under the scroll pad like other keyboards or like you would find on a laptop, they are located on the other side of...
Summary: I've put new batteries in this unit, and still have trouble breaking 10' from my HTPC. The unit responds very jumpy at just about the range where it's comfortably on my lap - works fine when on my knees ( I love my recliner ).
Pros: Good feeling to the keys, nice media buttons, no-interaction install, touchpad has some really nifty functions ( using two fingers for scrolling or toggling right-click, for example ), light weight, on/off switch.
Cons: No ability to customize any of the buttons ( in XP Pro, at least - I don't have MCE on this machine yet ), range is NOT 100' - not even 25'
