Summary: The trackball might seem slow and shaky at first, but you can compensate for this to an extent in the mouse settings The USB wireless adapter is hidden in the battery compartment, it's not packaged separately in the box.
Pros: I always see these cute little things when I go to Fry's. I thought I'd pick one up for my HTPC. * Almost full keyboard * QWERTY layout * Can press multiple keys for combos (alt + tab, ctrl + alt + esc, etc...)
Cons: * No function keys (F1-F12) * A few keys that seem out of place / unnecessary ("My Computer" key, dedicated ctrl+alt+delete key) * Keys feel kinda flimsy, and it's easy to fat-finger the wrong key
Summary: I love this device it is perfect remote for the living room and bedroom where I have computers connected to my tv's. I just found out that these are now made with back-lit keyboards. I will be buying two more!
Summary: It's exactly what I wanted. I Plugged it in and it worked right away. It's small, fits in your hand and you can use it to control a media center. I'm not going to use it as my main input device, but for when I'm streaming shows on my media center, or playing music, it is perfect.
Pros: works very good,even though i bought this because of its small size i was still surprised by how small it is, the bottom of it fits in the palm of your hand.good for lounging, and if your a fast texter,this is the keyboard for you
Summary: i hardly ever write reviews and typically buy without giving much thought to other peoples reviews. if it looks good.. ill buy it. mistake in this case. it really feels cheap, its very difficult to use, and I wish i never bought it. please save your money.
Pros: small, wireless, looks cool
Cons: feels cheap. trackball is a joke, keyboard is not backlit so hard to see, left and right click buttons are impossible to get used to.
Summary: The biggest problem with this product is that it sometimes misses typing and sometimes the cursor will skip when using the trackball. You know how it feels when your harddrive is clocking?
Pros: - Compact yet easy to use keyboard (big enough that it's easy to type.) - Looks nice. - Good range, can easily stand 15-20 feet away from my HTPC and it works fine. - No problem with trackball precision, can easily close windows, hit links, etc.
Cons: - Misses typing sometimes, especially if you type very fast with it. - Cursor skips sometimes during harddrive activity (even when a normal mouse would be functioning smoothly.) - Have to reach over trackball to left click.
Very Disappointing - Don't underestimate poor execution of clever design.

Summary: You get what you pay for here (which is not much). Buy a wireless keyboard with built-in trackball instead. You'll be using two hands on this anyway. I've used dozens of wireless pointers & trackballs for presentations and the accuacy of this one ranks near the bottom imho.
Pros: Concept is great (if not the execution). No-brainer install, up in running in just a minute or so. Decent RF range through walls. Looks cool. The keyboard works well enough.
Cons: As I said, it's the execution, not the concept that is bad here. The thing is very cheaply built. Not “it feels like it’s gonna break” cheap, but the track ball feels as lightweight as balled-up suran-wrap and breathing on it, merely vibrating your hand too much, or g*d-forbid trying to use the b...
