Good Keyboard, Bad pointing device, Range is not as good as claimed

Summary: Pros: * The keyboard is of descent compact size to use for typing. Better than smaller size keyboards. And also not too big to feel bulky. * Uses Standard AA batteries instead of Li-ion kind of batteries. * Range is sufficient for my use, which is a few around 3 or 4 feet. * Works on Windows & Linux. No drivers are needed. Did not test on Mac Cons: * The pointing device is very hard to use.
Summary: I purchased this keyboard a month ago from Amazon and still annoyed by its performance. Installation was pretty easy, the soft keys feel good and the size perfect for my fingers. Unfortunately, this keyboard have a lot of downsides. Stops working when it feels like, there's no "on" and "off" switch or battery indicator. You need to get use to type the keys which took me a few days. And I'm a good and fast 10 fingers typist.
Color and size of function key labels makes it hard to see them

Summary: Pros: I like the size and the fact there is not a numeric key pad which is why I bought this item. Hookup was easy and quick. Cons: The color and size of function key labels (F1 - F12) makes it hard to see them. I use them a lot on my other keyboards and I almost always don't use them on this key board. Home and end keys are function keys as well so it is a bit hard for those who are used to keyboard shortcuts.
Summary: Everything regarding connectivity, etc. worked fine on this keyboard. Its actually a sharp looking product, and I like the way the keys didn't make any noise. But I was looking for a keyboard that was the same size as my laptop keyboard. This was smaller than my laptop keyboard, so much so that I just couldn't type on it. Don't read this the wrong way - I knew it was a mini keyboard and that's what I wanted, but this was just too small.
Summary: Let me start with the things I like about this keyboard. The form-factor and design are flat-out brilliant. Seriously gorgeous to look at, and it looks terrific sitting next to my media center. I bought this for use with my Dell Studio Hybrid 140G media center PC (also a brilliant design), and for occassional use it's tolerable when browsing the internet or installing a media center extension from the comfort of your sofa.
