mouse keys need to be on the same side as the track ball


1. Put the mouse buttons on the same side with the trackball or on both sides. 2. Make the letters on the keys light up and make them bigger.

the extra hand held remote is nice. If I can't file a better keyboard then I will get a new one of these ; This keyboard was used for a long time before it died. And we used it over other wireless keyboards we had. We did like the mouse and keyboard...

1. mouse keys need to be on the same side as the track ball ; this keyboards track ball is a pain to use with the mouse buttons on the left and the track ball on the right you have to user both hands to work the track ball all the time ; 2. Does not...

Rechargeable batteries need to be changed every 3 months or so, which is reasonable. Communication is reliable at 15'-20' which is excellent in my home theater setup. The RF interface means I don't have to point it at anything, which is a nice bonus....

Long battery life, good range, numerous pre-programmed Media Center buttons, good grip surface on remote, adequate resistance on remote trackball, RF (and not IR) communication

Lack of user-programmable buttons, keyboard surface is a bit too slippery

great if it worked


This would be a great product if they would fix the accuracy of the trackballs and give the thing some usable range, and of corse make it last longer than a month.

Great ergonmics on the keyboard. Nice that it comes with an addtional remote

The track balls on each suck, it takes twice as long to click on something cuz you can't get it where you want it. True range is maybe 6' if there is nothing in the way, sometimes 2' if something is in the my legs. Then the keyboard...

Love it


Love having a keyboard with a trackball mounted on it. It's a little heavy, but works well. The remote-sized trackball is useful as well. Have had this for over a year now. Battery life is good

Stopped working within 3 months


Great layout and concept

Short life as so many others have stated. Trackball is loose and quite inaccurate. I am looking for something with better quality but same functionality

Simple HTPC KB/MS Combo


Key and mouse layouts on the keyboard and mouse are great and well thought out.

Plugged in. Paired. My lady and I have no issues browsing the web and using the media center features on the TV

Not really a con but the remote puts itself into sleep mode and does not respond to mouse movements until you make a key press anywhere on the remote. Also While watching a movie this could very well be a pro as to not having a cursor popping up on the...

Worked ok for 6 months


Do not buy this product.

Nice product if it would work longer than 6 months. The remote still works at 8 months

The keyboard started to lock up after 6 months. Taking a battery out and putting it back in make it work. Support did not respond to my e-mail and I called them with no response

nMEDIAPC HTPCKB-B Black 2.4GHz RF Wireless Streamlined Keyboard with Track Ball & Remote Combo Set


I would not recommend purchasing this product as there's obviously a problem when a majority of user's are reporting the same issue.

The product design is great! Love the built in track-ball and keyboard combination

I found the range was 10 feet at most, which was frustrating at times but I was overall happy with the product- until it died 5 months later

nmedia wireless keyboards


the keyboard worked great for 6 months ONLY

I purchased two of these. they BOTH died within 6 months. no response. the worst part has been the response from the nmedia. it was impossible to get someone on the phone to honor the warranty. once we got an email response back, we sent both back for...
