Pros: Works like a normal keyboard.
Has a touchpad.
Cons: touchpad less sensitive than most laptops. finger movements track poor.
no back light. HTPC users, you want this.
sync button on back gets hit accidentally losing BT sync/
Other Thoughts: works well overall. Bought for a HTPC but wouldnt buy again since i cant see buttons at night. Get a backlit model. For any other use, it works great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plays HD-DVD and Blu Ray. Thats easy to figure out.
Cons: Drive performs great. A minor thing to mention though is that the blue light ont eh front of the drive is fairly bright in night time viewing. I use this in a HTPC and luckily I have a front cover. If you don't, no big deal but I thought I should mention in case this is a problem for anyone. Really not a big deal but it does flash a lot.
Other Thoughts: It comes with power dvd 7. This is good, but power dvd 8 ended the hd-dvd support and as of writting this there is no working hack to re-enable it. The one all over the internet was diasbled with the current version of power dvd 8. From my testing (on power dvd 8) it played blu ray great. Although if you are buying this drive hd-dvd is probably something you are after like me. Check out win dvd 9. Plays both perfectly with no problems and you won't be stuck at power dvd 7 forever. A quick note about total media theater which you see being mentioned a lot with the other two players I mentioned. That one liked to hang up a lot for me when playing hi-def content. Could just be my htpc. But check out win dvd 9 (or current release) if you like me need a stable dual format player.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This keyboard is great. Having the touchpad attached to the keyboard is just wanted I wanted. Range is excellent as well. Keyboard can be set up via bluetooth without another attached keyboard. Attractive and super slim.
Cons: The only thing that I could think of that really isn't the fault of the keyboard but that is that it wont work in DOS or your system BIOS. This is a bluetooth limitation. While I am used to the synaptics touchpads this keyboard touchpad does most of the same things but does not have the same nice configurations as found on most laptops.
Other Thoughts: Remember this is a mini keyboard that I use for my HTPC so it stays on my coffee table. It is only 6" x 9" so if you are not sure how small that is, it is about 1/2 as wide as a regular keyboard. The nice thing is it has all the same keys but remember in order to make them fit the keys are smaller. Not a big deal but you are not going to want this to write novels on.
Also it doesn't state if it includes a BT adaptor but it doesn't so you will need to order one as well.
