4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Fits well in hands. Keys have a nice button feel to them.

Cons: Mouse Joystick takes a while to get use to.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine at a store (newegg won't let me post here) for $59.99. I'm leaving a comment here to let others know that the range isn't as bad as people say. Sometimes after leaving the device on for a while it will have some trouble. All we do is power the device off and back on and we have great range again. I can go 30ft away from our media box, and it still works well.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy this

Pros: * Looks nice
* Sits well in your hands and has a solid feel to it

Cons: * The reception is terrible. They advertise 30 feet reception, but I was lucky to 6 ft. My couch is only 6 feet from the TV/PC, but apparently that's too far. To get it to work, I had to move within a couple of feet, and even then reception comes and goes.
* Because of this reception problem, keys get dropped constantly, even when you're up close. Every few keystrokes a letter won't register, so you either have to type very slowly or go back and insert the missing character. It's super frustrating. Moving further away only exacerbates the problem.
* The mouse joystick is not analog like you would expect. It only has two speeds fast and slow; moving it farther doesn't make it go any faster. And it's not directionally analog either, it only has 8 directions.
* It chews through batteries very quickly. It has an on/off switch on the back, presumably to save power, but even with only mild use I've had to change the batteries monthly.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: don't buy this keyboard. It looks cool, feels cool in your hand, but it just doesn't work. Trying to use it will drive you crazy.

I bought this at a brick-and-mortar store on a whim and have regretted it ever since. I'm reviewing it here on Newegg to hopefully keep someone from making the same mistake I did.

2 out of 5 eggsSignal Lost all the time

Pros: The form factor is excellent. I love being able to click and drag files from one computer to another requiring holding down the left click button and moving the cursor. There is also a right click button that allows me to access on screen controls in Windows Media Center. The weight and feel in the palm of the hand is good.

The buttons are set up so well that by mapping movements to the arrow buttons you can almost play 3D video games using this thing. Ecept for the cons listed below. I could easily pull it off.

Cons: First is the signal. It cuts out so much I often have to repeat characters while typing into hulu, or netflix search. It will even cut out while I am dragging video or picture files around.

There is also some type of wake up period. If the keyboard is sitting around it most likely wont start working as soon as you pick it up and start using it. I often hold down the function button for about 10-20 seconds before it responds. Then I can use it, with key presses working about 75% of the time.

The mouse is not at all analog. It has a slow speed, and a fast speed. It makes it almost impossible to click on search buttons, or on videos you would like to see.

The mouse is also very X,Y oriented. You can get the cursor to go diagonal a little bit, but it is easier to go left or right then go up and down.

The scroller next to the joystick, well it scrolls just like expected until I lift my thumb off of it. Then the page jumps to where it was befor you started scrolling.

Other Thoughts: More cons: The doors for the batteries are held on by a couple of thin flimsy peices of plastic. I bent one on accident once, almost breaking it off. Of course the door would not go on right with the little plastic tab bent out of shape so i had to carefully bend it back with my thumb nail. One wrong move and the door would have been broken forever.

If this had a good connection signal, woke up properly and timely, and had an analog thumb stick this product would be amazing. I could use it for games if I wanted to, but that is only a fantasy pipe dream. I guess I will go for the Logitech diNovo next time.

1 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: Good form factor for HTPC use.

Cons: Aweful ability to keep signal. Need line of sight and less than 10 feet...the slightest obstruction and it stops responding. Could be interference...but after re-pairing at least 10 different times the problem persisted.

Other Thoughts: Found at a local brick and mortar for a little cheaper than newegg...so picked it up. Not happy with my purchase...will be returning for something else worthwhile, possibly a full size keyboard with touchpad.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy this product

Pros: - compact design
- reasonably well laid out

Cons: - range is unacceptable; signal is lost constantly
- not back-lit
- mouse stick has only two speeds, when rightfully it should be analog [like a game controller stick]

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and get a competing product. I wish I could recommend an alternative but since I'm out the cost of this device it'll be a while before I can try out something else.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed feelings

Pros: Small enough for the coffee table to use with my HTPC. Good range, most of the time. Only uses two AA.

Cons: Almost too small, 6” wide. Very difficult to see keys in average room light with my eyes. No info at their website! Not backlit.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my well worn mini that isn’t offered any more and looks just like the SIIG JK-WR0412-S1 that I tried last month from NewEgg. I had to return that (twice) do to media button problems. I have mixed feelings because it’s small enough to be inconspicuous on the coffee table but too small to use without putting on my reading glasses. I don’t want to type like the first reviewer here, just control my HTPC with the occasional typing. The joystick is touchy but I’m getting better. I’ve been going back and forth between the two. This thing is small at only 6” wide compared to my first mini that is about 14”.

I only gave 3 eggs mostly because of the lack of details here and at their website. If I knew it was this small I wouldn’t have bought it, over $80. I dare you to find anything at their website that mentions the size of this product or anything about it!

And the range is good most of the time. That was the problem with my first kbd, but this does work at 25’.

3 out of 5 eggsMostly Good

Pros: The keyboard fist nice in my hands and has a nice weight to it. The keys click when pressed. Joystick is responsive, though difficult to get used to. The left and right mouse buttons at the top are a nice touch. It makes it easy to click and drag, which is difficult on most combined keyboard mouse devices. The keys are spaced far enough. Anyone used to typing on a smart he will have no problems. It has caps lock and function lock and indicator lights for both.

One additional note "alt" and "del" are together on the bottom right of the space bar and "ctrl' on the bottom left. This makes it very easy to send "ctrl-alt-del" by holding 'alt' and "del" with one thumb and "ctrl" with the other. All in all well laid out peice of hardware .

Cons: I really like the keyboard and would have given four eggs but.....range is terrible on this device. It is plugged to the front of my computer and I am sitting not 12ft away and it still drops signal sometimes. If I move it to the back I get nothing.

It is not backlit. Would be nice to have that.

Other Thoughts: It does feel similar to a cell phone keyboard and I find myself trying to use it as such. It would be nice to have software that did predictive text, auto caps and insert period when double spacing. This device and any like it are difficult to type on. I have used it for this review as a test and it has been tough
