Consumer review (newegg.com)

pefect HTPC companion

 

This was the perfect solution for my HTPC needs. I recently got a Lenovo IdeaCentre 300 PC-on-a-stick that I have connected to my TV. Running Kodi on that with this as a controller is just what I need!

It's small size makes it perfect to have laying around the living room for a PC connected to a TV, yet the buttons and the mouse-pad are very usable. The keys on the keyboard feel good, and allow for easy typing. The mouse-pad touch is smooth and the...

The little d-pad on the bottom middle works great as arrow keys, but the button in the middle, I want to instinctively use that as an "Enter" key after arrow-keying around.. but it doesn't work that way.

Solid Product

 

The battery on this product varies in life, and seems to use more life doing the same things one day, then having a shorter or longer life the next time I do those things, assuming it was fully charged both times. It's not a massive fluctuation, but...

This is a great device for controlling my htpc or my laptop ; It provides potential for the ultimate level of convenient laziness ; I can sit and browse the internet or control anything I need on the big screen my media pc is connected to, or I can...

The only thing I don't like is how deep inside the touch pad is from the surface. I was surprised that it wasn't on the same level, but that's just a personal silly issue, and nothing to detriment the actual functionality of the device

Not Worth Half The Price

 

None so far

When I ordered this keyboard, I expected a Mini-Keyboard, not a Cell-Phone-Sized Keyboard. On top of that, there is no included software or drivers, so you can't disable tap-to-click, and you can't increase the sensitivity of the touchpad, which is...

One Year later

 

For $ assume it will last a year and is that worth it? If looking for longer term, buy better brand.

Its compact and has secondary keys for media functions. The dedicated light button and backlighting are great for movie watching. Many keys available. Works with Linux ubuntu 12.04 . Can flip vertically for touchpad use.

Need to hold FN key to scroll. Setting for touchpad size does not stay. A few days after warranty expires, 1 year, the battery seems to be crapping out. Battery is fixed and non standard, BLC-4. From inside of batter it seems to have almost caught a...

Works okay, nothing exceptional

 

Wished I would have purchased another miniature keyboard input device. This device doesn't appear to charge properly and has an extremely limited working distance.

Compact

Limited working range

Amazing little toy

 

great little wireless keyboard I love not having a board across my lap all the time to use a regular keyboard and mouse now

This thing is great. i can sit in my recliner with my feet up and relaxed instead of sitting at a desk

-no shift on the right side. it's really annoying having to reach over to the left side with your right thumb. -Sometimes keys don't register so you have to press it again. -mousepad sometimes jumps around a bit

Love it

 

Touch Pad takes some getting used and I wish it had arrow keys. Perfect for HTPC and wireless range reaches everywhere I want to go.
