Decent Media PC Keyboard
Pros: The Azio KB338BP Bluetooth keyboard works well enough for my purposes, which is as an infrequent keyboard/mouse for my home theater PC (HTPC). Most of the time, I am using my Harmony 700 remote. The keyboard does have Windows Media Center keys that make some HTPC tasks easier. The keyboard is small enough to easily slide into one of the shelves of my TV stand.
Cons: The keys are not back-lit, but I knew that when I purchased the keyboard. It is not a concern for me. The Bluetooth connection between the keyboard and the PC will often drop, and I have to re-establish the connection. Since I use the keyboard infrequently, this is only a minor annoyance, but if this were a primary input device, I would be extremely annoyed. The placement of the Internet hot keys is very inconvenient. I do not use these keys, but if your hand naturally rests against the side of the keyboard, you will inadvertently trigger one of the hot keys. For me it is most often the mute key, which is very annoying in a HTPC application!
