Summary: I have tried a dozen different HTPC mini keyboards and this one is my favorite. The trackball and mouse keys, scroll wheel are in comfortable places. It lights up bright for night time use. It has great battery life. I use rechargeable's and swap then about once a month before they die out.
Pros: This is great for HTPC use. It's back-lit keys are easy to see at night and the trackball works great. It has forward and back keys and a scroll wheel on the left side that actually works great with the side of your thumb. It has great range. It has a cover that protects it and puts it in standby...
Cons: The biggest con is the trackball doesn't remove for cleaning. After a year it stopped responding well. I blew compressed air from my air compressor into it and that fixed it. After a while that stopped working and I was going to toss it. Instead I soaked a cotton ball with alcohol and cleaned the...
Summary: This works great and spares me from using the slow on board screen on my smart TV. I don't plan to use my smart TV for real computer work; I have plenty of other devices for that. This is just to help me to use the Apps for movies, browsing the internet, and just relaxing kind of stuff.
Summary: Must have trackball to surf the net on my large screen tv & mouse buttons. Tried touch pad, took back & got my money back. Touch pad will not work because it clicks every time it is touched dropping or stopping the video on utube as you may try to move the cursor.
Summary: I use this with the laptop while leaning back in the couch with the LT on a TV tray or I wire the LT to my TV. I sit about 17' away from the dongle with no lag or disconnect. The back light is good for night but the buttons feel a little mashie.
Summary: Plasticky. Trackball is unacceptably dysfunctional--seems like a half baked prototype. Backlight as a selling feature is dimmed by it's faint-dark blue backlight. It's really the fubar'd, shockingly bad, trackball that truly disappoints. It's one of the more expensive ones, too.
Summary: What can I say other than they just didn't work. One the trackball didn't work out the box. With the replacement, NOTHING worked. Great design, horrible delivery. 2 Stars for the design, 0 for the implementation.
Summary: Nice small toy that does indeed work. Small size may cause this to be given to one of my grand-children for their eventual use. Looking for a full size wireless keyboard and probably a wireless mouse.
