Good keyboard


I got this over a year ago for my HTPC. It has worked very well with good range. The kids have dropped it many times including a drop from about 5 feet high. The mouse ball came out but was easy to snap back into place.

Very good HTPC keyboard at a good price

It is smaller then your average keyboard but good for the casual typer

I love it!


Shoulder buttons for mouse buttons and the metal track ball work really well together. Works from across the room, about 10 feet. No software to install on Windows 7

It doesn't sit evenly on a flat surface. Like one of the rubber feet should be longer. I've tried switching them around, but it appears that the whole thing is uneven. It rocks when typing

Aww Man


Nice size, overall a great attempt

Trackball worked for less than 2 weeks. Now it chooses when it wants to work. I should have done more research before I made this purchase. Wasted $40

perfect for my needs ..

Range could be slightly better I suppose? Im using it 20 feet away, and much further than that - and it seems to have a hard time. However, I have a lot of wireless devices surrounding the receiver, so that could be interfering the signal...But not...

FN key problem not a problem


The FN key on my windows 7 machines is reversed to use the numbers instead of the letters on the keys. Nowhere in the manual was I able to find information about how to reverse this problem. I finally stumbled on the answer on the internet. Hold down...

Works well with everything once I figured out the ins and outs of it. range is excellent and its light, small, and pretty well made

Documentation of features is a bit lacking
