4 out of 5 eggsYou need Touchfreeze

Pros: see other reviews

Cons: cursor jump while typing, location of certain keys, read below for solution!

Other Thoughts: this keyboard is pretty nice as others have said but it has one big flaw where as your typing the cursor will jump to other places since your thumbs will graze the touch pad making typing a harrowing experience. for months I endured this torture and even looked for a replacement until I found an awesome little program called TOUCHFREEZE. problem solved! this program simply senses your typing and disables the tap feature on your touchpad for a second effectively preventing any cursor jumps errors! so plan on getting this program or you will probably be frustrated. Also there are programs that will easily remap keys so you can have everything where you want it i.e. delete/backspace.

3 out of 5 eggsBest in a field of bad products

Pros: -Wireless doesn't disconnect
-Touchpad works fine
-Convenient as a wireless lap keyboard with mouse
-Keys feel OK

Cons: -Duplicates keystrokes!!! Lot's of typo's
-Everytime it wakes up (well almost everytime), it turns on num lock -- stupid!
-Wireless dongle looks like its from the 80's (HUGE)
-Not in the least bit ergonomic

Other Thoughts: -This seems to be the best wireless keyboard with touchpad product on the market, but it's not too good. You will typo like a crazy person if you use this to do any extensive typing.
-Not sure about range. I use this so I can sit a few feet further back from my desktop so I'm not far away at all (3 or 4 feet?). It has never disconnected from thiis distance.
-So far, battery life is good. Haven't changed them in nthe month+ that I have owned it and I worked at computer all day long.

3 out of 5 eggsMoving on

Pros: It's a wireless keyboard with an integrated touch and scroll pad. I bought it for my HTPC. Battery life is good.

Cons: Like another reviewer mentioned, the antenna only works well for me if you tilt it upward at about a 20d angle. Otherwise the keyboard misfires and is unusable. The mouse is also jumpy. This angling upward is required even though I'm only 6 ft away. The function key needs to be moved. It's not natural.

Other Thoughts: If I didn't have to tilt it off my lap every time I use it, I would have given it 4 stars.

4 out of 5 eggsThe Best

Pros: Small.

Exactly what I wanted for an HTPC keyboard. I have hundreds of compadres in the IT industry and have used dozens of HTPC combinations. I envisioned this product and googled to see if it was in existence. Found it and bought it. Had a wild ride getting to where I am now, but am thoroughly satisfied and convinced I have the BEST HTPC keyboard for media.

I do a lot of sys admin work with this thing and love it to death. I will admit, one time, when the battery was running low(read cons), it changed my shutdown option from log off to shutdown... Whoops!

Cons: First one was essentialy DOA. Sent it back to manufacturer, they said they would send me another. Waited 1 month, no keyboard. Contacted Manufacturer and they apologized and promised to send me another. Two days later, I received my keyboard. Two weeks later, I received a second keyboard. I called the company to let them know they sent me two, the said, 'because you were such a good customer, it's on us". Sweet!

Battery cover broke. Contacted Adesso... TWO Days later, two new battery covers.
Sweet!

Used to have all kinds of wierdness when battery power dropped below a certain level. Mainly inverted trackpad and weird touch recognition. Flipping the batteries generally helped. Bought 100 AC/Delco batteries from F(censored)ry's for 24.99$, put them in, issue has never replicated and the device seems to last 3x as long.
Perplexing and sweet!

You cannot type a research paper on this. It will misfire.

I tore off the home key because it drove me insane.

No on/of

Other Thoughts: If you have an HTPC with Boxee, netflix, vudu, pandora, grooveshark, etc., this will rock your world.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible Keyboard

Pros: It did not take long to find out how cheap it was made so the Pros are NewEgg will take the thing back!

Cons: Wake-up time is way too long (will not wake from mouse touch only keyboard input)

The number lock is always on by default so every time you wake your keyboard you have to turn off the number lock to enter a password and log in.

All the pieces seem to snap together everything shifts around (IR sensor, the trim around the mouse pad , etc.)

It misfires letters or I am getting interference within 3 feet of the computer, tried rear and front USB ports.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Multimedia System

Pros: I love this keyboard for a TV multimedia system. Lightweight and easy to install. Still using the original batteries over a year later. I have tried on 4 different PC's with everything from XP through Win7 and all worked perfectly.

Cons: Occasionally the function keys will get locked on by accident. (Quick Fix) The slide on the touchpad will move you where you don't want to go if you hit it without watching what you are doing!

Other Thoughts: Great for the "Couch Potato" with a Huge Screen. Internet on 1/2 the screen and Football on the other!

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: - Perfect size, weight, key distribution (except for swapped Fn and Ctrl)
- Mousepad is perfect size sensitivity, etc.
- Keys material feels good

Cons: -Keyboard was defective almost from the beginning. ESC, F1, etc. don't work.
- Range is not so good
- Receiver is huge

Other Thoughts: I bought this keyboard for my HTPC. I almost never use it because I have a remote control, but sometimes I need it to change something in the BIOS, or edit some file in the console using VI (ESC key is used a lot in VI).
This would be the perfect keyboard for me if only it WORKED.
I would buy another keyboard from this brand, except I don't trust them anymore after spending so much money on this and getting this quality in exchange. Next time I'm getting one made in Japan.

1 out of 5 eggsYou Can't Change every Neighbor's Router Settings !

Pros: Laptop keyboard-like experience, accept for the touch pad

Cons: Touch pad glitchiness makes it useless. I'm calming down from the idea of breaking it over my knee and returning it today.
If reconfiguring the local wifi settings is all which is required to get the link to work "silky Smooth"... then I can't reconfigure every neighbor's router for 300 feet in every direction.
I'm going wired :\

Other Thoughts: Touchpad fails, to varying degrees, 40% of the time. I ran a few tests.
If I ever live far from any neighbors, I'll try this product again.

4 out of 5 eggsBuy It; only minor complaints

Pros: Just what I needed

Cons: -Mouse moves at 1/3 speed of my laptop mouse.
-When will they learn that there is NO NEED for an audible CLICK for any of the keys. The mouse buttons are excessively loud. This is non-ideal for meeting room use or while someone else in the room is trying to sleep,...
-Touch pad is a little tacky and a minor irritation to fingertip. I covered it with a sticky note. Hey, it works...

Other Thoughts: Upon 1st Connection:
-It switched left/right mouse key functions. Just had to change in mouse settings.

Other;
-Electric tape around receiver to block incessant Blinking.
