Works great but beware, not standard keyboard layout!
28 March 2016
Summary: Works and connected flawlessly but the arrows and 6 pack (Insert, delete, up, down, home, end) are not in standard layout making touch typing strange & difficult. Trying to get used to it, might return.
Summary: I had this connected to my home theater PC for a little over a month when the receiver stopped working. I have tried the USB dongle in three different computers since then and it does not register on any of the three. The set worked flawlessly up to that point.

The crummiest range I've ever seen from a wireless input device. My girlfriend and I both grumble whenever either of us has to type some...
