Excerpt: So far I am pleased with this keyboard. I brought my dead computer back to life as a second machine for watching streaming video. <br /><br />The wireless keyboard is perfect for a remote. Not so small you can't type comfortably, but not so big it gets in the way. The trackball is responsive and easy to use. Having the buttons for the trackball on the other side takes a little getting used to, but makes it easier to hold on your lap.
Summary: I have purchased 6 different types of wireless keyboards for my Home Theater in the last 24 months. This product is the perfect size, very easy to handle and has a 33' range. The AA batteries last forever. The auto-scroll thumb wheel is great for scrolling down long webpages. Additionally, it offers a 3 year guarantee. If you are looking for a high-performance keyboard, this is the weapon of choice.
Summary: The buttons are a little delicate like you would find on a laptop. We have to keep the keyboard away from our two-year-old because the first thing she does is start to pop buttons off. Under normal use, this isn't an issue.
Pros: I'll take a trackball over a touchpad any day, and this one works great for my HTPC install. As long as you wipe the ball clean every once in a while, you're good to go. This does have a middle click if you push down on the scroll wheel.
Cons: This is just a basic design of the keyboard, since the mouse buttons are on one side and the ball is on the other, mousing is always a two-handed affair. I knew this going in and I'm fine with it.
Excerpt: This keyboard/trackball mouse combo is excellent for sitting on the couch surfing the net on TV. The trackball and mouse buttons are pretty easy to use, and battery life seems good so far. Two setbacks to this keyboard. On/off switch on the bottom..WHY? (I think a timer shutoff would be better.) No numberpad makes some things a bit tougher, but the size very comfortable.
Pros: Comfortable Design, No Junky Fingerpad, Small And Light
Excerpt: Price: A+<br />Quality: A<br />Functionality: A<br />Durability: C-<br /><br />Pros: Good, small size, great feel, media keys.<br />Cons: Trackball is sealed in permanently, unable to clean. Once it starts sticking, there's not much you can do.<br /><br />Note: I have read many reviews on this and the only complaint is the trackball gets dirty and stops working over time.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Great Features, Highly Compatible, Quiet
Excerpt: Previously purchased for the family room HTPC. Worked out well so I purchased another for the bedroom HTPC. Great for web surfing and as a media player controller. Easy and comfortable to use, although you need the use of both hands- the right thumb controls the track ball and the left thumb controlls the right/left buttons and scroll wheel. Good RF reception at 15-20 feet and very responsive. The track ball feels a little rough but works well.
