Neat little remote

Rodney H., Newegg
16 February 2012
  • Summary: I use this on a computer connected to my main TV and the more I use it the more natural it feels. Took a little getting use to, but now I really like it.
  • Pros: Very easy to operate. Batteries seem to last forever. the mouse roller is precise.
  • Cons: Keys are kinda small for my fat fingers. No F functions

Great remote!

  • 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

Exactly what I wanted

Brent D., Newegg

  • 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: Small, Light, Functional
  • Cons: Build Quality

  • 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.

Very good, but not perfect.

Curtis B., Newegg
11 March 2011
  • 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.

  • Summary: if they were to rotate the keyboard 180 degrees and flip the right and left clik button i think it would make this item even better. and the addition of a scroll wheel would be nice also
  • Pros: worked great right out of the box the track ball is a little touchy. I use this item with my tv for viewing net flix and it works great alwoes for all the interface in a handheld unit
  • Cons: no scroll wheel

Very Disappointing - Don't underestimate poor execution of clever design.

Anonymous, Newegg
8 February 2011
  • 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...
