Excellent Keyboard and Mouse

 

Keyboard overall is good for what it needs to be. My only complaint is the keyboard came with a Micro USB A connector, one for like smartphones while the keyboard actually need a Mini A USB connector (The larger one). I had one laying around so it's...

- Small and light, similar dimensions as my Samsung Galaxy S4. - Touchpad is more than good enough for what's needed. - Plug and play, works on any device I plug it into.

- Came with the wrong USB cable!

So cool that I bought another one!

 

I purchased one of these a few months ago to use with my HTPC and it works great. As a matter of fact, I kept using it on other computers when I would work on them. So I purchased another one to put in my computer ''doctor's bag'' for when I work on...

Messed up touchpad

 

Great backlight, easy to type on, easily accessible F-keys, great media keyboard.

The touchpad is constantly receiving input when there is none which makes the cursor move in little circles. This is extremely annoying because it forces the on screen display to constantly appear in videos.

Cute

 

I use this as an HTPC controller and it serves its purpose fine. Touchpad takes some time to get used to as in the fact that the most miniscule of movements on the pad may transfer into about a foot and a half screen distance that the pointer moves.

compact, rechargeable, backlit, well constructed, plug-n-play, keyboard, and mouse

compact. touchpad takes getting used too

Great little keyboard

 

I cant make any statements about battery life, I charge mine about once a week though. I wish that I had realized there was a bluetooth model before I bought this one.

Great little keyboard, pretty comfortable to type on. the backlight is nice. decent reception in my living room and dining room. built in laser pointer is great for conferences in my living room, and entertaining cats.

sometimes getting it to wake out of standby is a pain, I just turn it off and on again, rather than punch keys until it decides to wake up.

Manageable.

 

A lot of annoying cons, but you will get used to it after a few weeks. Not a bad product.

- Convenient - Long battery life, quick charge - Back-lit keys - Able to configure to hold it like a remote - Fairly compact

- The device needs a clear view of the receiver for it to work - Hard to hold the keyboard naturally because of the trackpad position, but manageable - If you lose connection while typing, it will literally spam. i.e. "spammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm" or "spm" -...

I like it

 

Works as intended. Just like a remote but can do a lot more on my Media Server with full keyboard.

Non so far

Works w/ Some Limitations

 

My motherboard thankfully had a single PS/2 port, so I was able to plug my keyboard into that and use this for my mouse. Works for me.

It works within an OS. All keys and mouse functions work. Good if you don't touch the BIOS or game. See below.

Doesn't work outside of an OS, such as in BIOS settings. Also, the real kicker is key presses cut out after about 30 seconds of pressing. Meaning when I'm running through Dustbowl as Scout in TF2 and I'm getting close to the point, I suddenly stop...
