Summary: This little keyboard with touchpad is inexpensive, easy to use, responsive, and very good value for the money. Larger fingers may find the keyboard a bit small at first, but the size is a real plus on a crowded desk top: about 11.5" x 9". It has small back feet that flip out to put the keyboard at a convenient angle. You plug it into a USB port and it is good to go immediately. The touchpad is a good size and has a scroll function on the right.
Summary: I use this keyboard for my media center attached to my HDTV. The touchpad makes if convenient for controlling all the futures of any windows application, althought it may not be very confortable for typing long documents. I went for the wired version since my livingroom is very small, so the keyboard sits at the coffee table close to the TV most of the time. I guess the bluetooth version would work perfectly for those looking for freedom of movement around the room.
Summary: 5* for quality.. as far as keyboards go, it is quite acceptable. Everything else gets a 4 because while it is pretty good, it could be improved. Some of the keys are in funky spots, like the is between the space bar and alt key, and there are two windows keys instead of a right ctrl.. and all keys in the thumb row are like 1/3 width which makes hot-keying in my tiling window manager error-prone when moving quickly.
Summary: We use these for our kiosk hardware and they work great. No moving parts to break, the trackpad functions very well. We've used these dozens of times (maybe 50). Compact yet not too small for big hands like mine.
Summary: I needed a small keyboard with Touch Pad for my PC which I have connected to my TV in the living room. We only have a small coffee table in the living room and no room for a keyboard and mouse. The keyboard is plug and play. I am running Windows XP, I connected it and it worked flawless right away. Its small, but big enough to put it on your lab.
