Pros: A lot of features in a compact package. Rechargeable. Wireless. Raspberry Pi/Raspbmc compatible w/ media button support (stop, play/pause, etc).
Cons: Keys have "spongy" feel - I was expecting more of crisp a cell-phone KB button action. Motion sensor lock for "air mouse" mode detoggles on accidental mouse press. A bit overpriced. No physical features to orient you on button placement for low-light/touch usage.
Other Thoughts: This seems to be a solid keyboard for what it is. If you're looking for a compact and fully functional device, this is a good choice. However, for me and HTPC use, I'd go for a larger keyboard with different mouse control options in retrospect. Rated 4 stars on the execution of the device, but would rate lower on it's "fit" for me.
The mouse control is somewhat Wii-like in that a lack of fine motor control (could just be me) means you have to rotate and tilt the KB to zero in on your "target". For XBMC use, I simply toggle the mouse lock and use the arrow keys, but an errant bump of the mouse buttons (top of KB) causes the lock to turn-off.
I have not tried this in Windows, so I'm not sure what configuration options are available. I have also not tried the microphone/headphone features.
Note: if you have trouble finding the "air dongle" part, it's in a separate compartment located on the bottom of the keyboard.
Pros: Easy installation in Ubuntu Edgy x86 using MadWifi driver.
Cons: Range/signal strength seems to be less than other wireless adapters I've used, but I've had no problems connecting between floors in a two story house.READ FULL REVIEW
