Haven't bought it yet. But plan to.

 

Best rated tiny keyboard I've found. Shame newegg doesn't have original version.

I hear good things, however this is a rebranded product. The original brand name is Rii. I have found this elsewhere on am a zon for Thi rty two bu cks

Rebranded. overpriced

Coolest HOME MEDIA PC toy ever!

 

This device is smaller than my logitech 520 universal remote. The built in laser is pointless except to aggravate the dog. This device is PERFECT for a home theater installation and MCE windows. IT was well thought out, nicely designed, pretty...

Small, rechargeable, backlit, touchpad, power switch... TONS of PROs

Distance... Not a huge knock, but if you get past say 10 feet, the touchpad stops working correctly. I have A LOT of electronics in my house, so 10 feet is my max. Put the receiver in a front USB port and your good to go

Great Battery Life - Limited Range

 

Haven't found a good use for the laser. My cat used to chase it a bit until she learned she couldn't actually catch it.

This board lasts about a week between charges for me, and worked out of the box with Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10, and 11.10

It's range is about 4 inches less than the distance from the USB RF sensor in my media PC and where I relax on the couch (about 10 feet). I find that you get better range if the RF sensor is mounted sideways using the extra port on the charge adapter,...

As sweet as an actual Candybar

 

The laser pointer is only nice because it drives my dog crazy...but I still would have bought this with out that option. Buy it....you won't regret it.

Excellent for HTPC

 

The Candyboard is quite well designed and much easier to use than it may look. The buttons have a great tactile action and the RF reception doesn't miss a keystroke. The mouse is probably the most surprising component. It really works well for its...

As long as you don't believe the experience should be equal to a standard size keyboard/mouse, there really aren't any cons

Great!

 

Keyboard & Mouse for the media PC! Small, back light, cat laser pointer, off switch

Sure you have to scroll a few times on the track-pad to get across the screen but DUHHHH its small!!!, turn up the mouse speed and its not so bad. and yes sometimes the keys stick but since when is technology perfect

Great idea for a candy pad. Very pour functionality. Not worth the money at all.

Size, and good key functions

Touch pad is awful. Pointer does not move fast and the pad sensativity is very poor. double tap does not respond well

Consumer review by:

Great little device

 

Not so much a con, but the touchpad is considerably smaller than what I had originally expected.

This thing is TINY. The screenshots and video reviews I viewed didn't do it justice. It's roughly the size of my android phone (Captivate) ; My cats love the laser pointer, and it's one that I won't lose after a week ; Not only works in OS...

Only has F1-F8 keys (although maybe I'm blind and not seeing the rest...) ; Awkward when you need to capitalize a letter that you would normally press with left hand

Kinda Sketchy

 

Laser pointer is a nice feature if your using this for presentations or to torment cats!

Love the concept, small, and convient for a HTPC

The mouse pad is really jumpy, and you have to keep on swiping. The other issue im having is the keyboard it self. Ill go to type in a search and its like the letter gets stuck and ill have alot of AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA or BBBBBBBBBBBB and CCCCCCCCCCCCCC...

Easy to lose in your couch cushions.

 

Be sure to plug the usb RF key into a port plugged into the motherboard. I tried to plug it into a usb port in my 6-in-1 card reader so I could hide it behind the flap, but MB would not pick it up there: it reads flash memory fine but not the RF key....

This keyboard/trackpad combo is smaller than my usual TV remote. Immediately works on Linux, no messing about, as per label. +1 for stating Linux support on the label

When holding with two hands, I find myself hitting the fn button when I mean to push the left mouse button. Would be nice to have a second LMB on the left side of the unit ; Since F11 uses it does not always work for fullscreening (or more importantly...
