Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good product, bad range.

 

Spend a bit extra on the bluetooth model. This one is usable, but the short range is frustrating.

The size is just right. About the size of a regular TV remote, but the keys are large enough that they aren't a pain to use. I also found the remote part easy to program

The range is terrible. It works fine from about 3 feet away, but at 10 feet (about the distance to my couch) it gets really spotty reception. It will also occasionally get stuck on a particular input so it will type the same letter until you turn it...

Very bad execution

 

Good design, in theory ; Battery life is very good

Range is very poor; it struggles to send keypresses to a reciever 6 feet away, behind only glass, and only works consistently when held at a certain angle ; Keyboard doesn't "wake up" unless you agressively press a key either for a full second, or...

Almost Perfect

 

This device is a great idea that almost works beautifully. The touchpad and all keys work well. I love the lightweight and compact size of the Candyboard. If the IR for TV power on/off worked more reliably and the transport controls were discrete...

For the most part, touchpad works well for cursor control ; Illumination works well and all keys are easy to read ; 4 direction d-pad is nice touch and provides viable alternative to touchpad for control within WMC ; Included IR learning feature is...

Transport controls (play, pause, stop, etc) must be used with function key to work-Clumsy ; TV power on/off via learned IR does not work consistently. Multiple button presses required, even within a few feet of the TV

Good product but range is useless

 

I bought this product to use on my HTPC. It has all the features I need including a remote to control my TV and amp. The remote function is a bit flaky but usable. The keyboard is small but that's all I need for HTPC use. Mouse pad is quite sensitive...

Outstanding Product

 

This device does everything is says. I am very impressed with the range, 30ft. The size is very surprising, it's much smaller than I thought. It's very easy to type on, the keys have a very positive feel to them, then click real nice when pushed....

I don't want to use it as a remote control, wish it didn't have the remote control buttons on the back. No big deal, I just wanted a keyboard only

VisionTek 900507

 

Multi-use, trainable with all remotes tested, charges fast and lasts weeks between recharges

Layout difficult to use for more than a few minutes, mouse buttons and drag-drop with mouse-pad exceedingly cramped and hard to hold. Used this to replace same companies mini-keyboard with mouse-pad in the center that lasted for years. That one is much...
