BTC 9029URF III Gray/Black 86 Normal Keys 17 Function Keys RF Wireless Mini MCE Keyboard for Windows XP Media Center Edition

 

The rubber part of the joystick thumb track comes off. Then the evetually the keys doesnt respond anymore.

I like the feel of the keyboard, no skipping of letters ,range is pretty good, the placement of the joy stick is comfortable

It keeps resetting on it own so I have to reset it with its usb RF wireless receiver ; Its a bit heavy ; No scroll ; the RF reciever is bulky . the Windows media button is too close to the left and rt click of a mouse on the left upper side of the...

Very good for it's intended purpose

 

This is a good addition to an HTPC that you would normally control using the MCE Remote. You wouldn't necessarily want to use this as your main keyboard on another type computer, but it's easily stowed, works well, and the pointer and "mouse keys" are...

Good range, great optional control for Media Center - adds a keyboard for rare times you need it. Allows you to exit or minimize Media Center on an HTPC and actually have a useful tool in the Desktop without finding both a mouse and keyboard. I like...

none really... I wish there were a better "mouse alternative", but what is it? Trackballs, touchpads, "joysticks" - they all suck. I knew how this keybaord worked before I bought it and I can live with the way it is

Interference

 

If your using an Ethernet cable you should be fine. I believe the other reviewers thought the lag in the point was due to range, tested several times in different methods and I concluded its due to interference. On another note I even have usb...

Its small has a pointer built in. Range is actually very far. 10 meters easy if its in an unobstructed living room. Although see the Cons

If your using ANY form B/G/N wireless adapters do not get this keyboard. When your downloading or stream videos the pointer gets extremely laggy to the point you can't use. Works fine immediately after you finish downloading. Tried 3 different adapters

Good deal!

 

Great price! Don't need an MCE remote to use (in comparison to MS's MCE k/b).

The layout is a little wierd, and takes some getting used to.

Nice range but...

 

If they could fix the 'joy stick' issue this keyboard would be a great addition to a media center setup.

The installation was very simple and it worked well with my Vista Media Center (no driver needed). The battery life seemed good while I used it

The 'joy stick' mouse takes some getting used to. The 'joy stick' mouse works fine when it works but I have had to return my first keyboard and now my replacement has failed. It seems that the 'joy stick' is not durable and fails rather easily

Not worth it

 

Great layout and size

I was willing to give this keyboard a shot after reading the reviews of the joystiq mouse breaking after a short period of time. Today I heard the pop while using it and had broke. You can still halfway use it by pressing hard on it but worthless. They...

Buy something else

 

Will give it to my 2 year old son to play with. Useless otherwise.

Weak range, flaky mouse

Great keyboard

 

Excellent wireless range, low price.

The mouse pointer broke after about a month, but I was able to fix it after some tinkering.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not recommended.

 

N/A

Highly recommend you find another keyboard unless you like headaches. I have RMA'd this product twice due to the mouse breaking the same way each time. It is connected by a thin piece of plastic and I was not able to repair. Also, wireless range is not...
