2 out of 5 eggsnever buy a belkin keyboard

Pros: wireless, programmable to function with other things like your tv, built in mouse.

Cons: This keyboard is nice when you first get it... but after a while it just gets worse and worse. They designed it so the buttons push down on little rubber contacts which eventually at one point begin to get sticky and make it much harder to type. Everyone other than myself who has used my keyboard complains about it. I originally didn't want to bother writing a review, but after my "O" button stopped functioning I just had to share my terrible experience with this product. (right now im using the on-screen keyboard to type O's) Also the arrow keys at one point kept sticky (which I eventually figured out was my problem and removed). Basically what im saying is, DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Other Thoughts: Waste of money even though I only paid $40 for this.

2 out of 5 eggsCheap alternative to more expensive integrated mouse keyboard combos

Pros: Works. Mouse is easy to navigate. Great all in one solution for your living room.

Cons: On Windows Vista, I constantly get a "low battery warning" every 5-10mins. Seems like a Vista issue, and other sources online support it.

Won't work on your lap if your laying down, signal between keyboard a receiver becomes week.

Cradle connection is a bit iffy. You need to put the keyboard back in a certain way and wait a couple seconds for the charge light to appear.

Other Thoughts: I have changed the rechargeable batteries on here to make sure it wasn't just a dead battery. No change in low battery warning. Even switched to alkaline batteries (not connected to cradle) and get the same warning.

Belkin's tech support sucks, but I have to give it to them, they are one of the few companies that seem like they aren't outsourcing their entire CS staff to foreign countries. Too bad they hire lazy people, who take five calls to actually get something fixed

4 out of 5 eggsworks well, could work better

Pros: Pretty much indispensable for my living room setup. Works well as a handheld mouse for browsing, with a keyboard when you need it. Works fine at 20 feet. I'm pretty good about placing it in the dock when not using, so battery has never been an issue.

Cons: Keys are small, sticky, sloooow to type with. Once the O key stopped working for a while; now it works fine. Several times a week usb cable must be unplugged and replugged. The extra hotkeys are difficult to program.

Other Thoughts: It's a better mouse than a keyboard, but the keyboard works fine for occasionally filling web forms, renaming files, etc. A good product, but maybe a little pricey.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for media center

Pros: Keyboard/mouse/remote are all together. Range is better than my old microsoft wireless keyboard. Small.

Cons: I have had the keys quit working just like other users. To fix just take it apart and wipe with a dry cloth between the layers of plastic that make up the circuit board that the keys press together. Works fine again.

Other Thoughts: Newegg may replace it if, but i believe belkin has discontinued support.

4 out of 5 eggsA bit overpriced but good

Pros: Lightweight and feature rich. Can program a few custom remote commands with the IR learning feature. The addition of common media keys like volume and playback are nice. Docking bay is easy to use. Have not had any disconnect issues as others have. Mac and PC key labels are a plus too.

Cons: Price. For the price, it could have a better keyboard tactile response but it is adequate for HTPC usage, not office usage. Mouse is a bit slow even when accelerated in control panel.

Other Thoughts: I chose to get mine via a popular online overstock reseller for about half of what it normally goes for in June of 07. I wouldn't pay full price for this since I'm cheap but it is just about worth it anyways for the average HTPC installation.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Idea, Terrible quality!

Pros: Smaller than standard keyboard.

Cons: Everything else.
From day one the number five key occasionally sticks.
The keys as a whole have very poor feel and sticky movement.
It's wireless range is very poor less than six feet without occasionally missing key strokes.
This is by far in away the worst keyboard i have ever owned and i have purchased some pretty cheap keyboards in the past.
Stay away from this one !!!!

2 out of 5 eggsGreat concept, poor execution

Pros: Has a keyboard, mouse, IR remote all in the same package

Cons: Battery charge only lasts about a day
Frequently loses connection with PC, requiring reattaching the USB connection
Programmable function of IR remote only works with certain keys. i.e, you can't program the codes for the volume control or power control.
The mouse is almost useless because it is too slow and inaccurate.

Other Thoughts: This could have been the ultimate media center control solution, but it fell short by far.

2 out of 5 eggsRandom Disconnects - like several other reviews

Pros: Has a mouse, keyboard and IR remote in one package - great idea if it was really reliable.

Cons: Like other reviewers, I have the problem with this keyboard disconnecting from the PC. Only a physical unplug and replug of the USB cable fixes the problem. This makes the wife/girlfriend support factor impossible. If you are a techie and buying this keyboard only for yourself it is OK. If you are buying it for a HTPC that several people will use, look for another product. Several calls to Belkin yeilded no help. I tried two of these keyboards on two different PC's - both exhibit these random disconnects.

Other Thoughts: A friend who has this keyboard also has the random disconnects - he has a theory that cold temperatures cause it to happen more often.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent MythTV Companion

Pros: Zero configuration for standard use under Linux. Range is excellent. Can control a whole range of A/V devices through it's IR port (uses RF for communication with the base station). Rechargeable batteries. Small form factor.

Cons: Programming the device codes for the A/V IR remote requires hooking the device up to a Windows or Mac box. Keys feel a little cheesy, but not a deal breaker. Belkin does not specifically support Linux.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried to get the keyboard's extended keys to be recognized under Linux, but that doesn't mean that they can't be.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good, with annoying caveats

Pros: The thumb mouse takes a bit getting used to but not as nice as IBM's UltraNav button on ThinkPads. Programmable AV keys are great but every AV function is accessible only after 2-3 keypresses (procedural tasks like mode switching, context selection, etc).

Cons: The keys are super stiff, don't expect to fly at 100 wpm on this thing. Also, the keyboard tends to become virtually disconnected several times throughout the day (non responsive keypresses), which only a manual plug/unplug from the USB port could fix. This is very annoying and can really test your patience. Not sure if this is a hardware or software issue but it doesn't happen with any of my other USB peripherals.

Other Thoughts: This was the only HTPC-targeted wireless keyboard I found while I was shopping around 6 months ago. Overall a decent product but I am keeping my eyes out for something better.
