Improvement over my RF keyboard for the most part

Pros: Has all the buttons I need to control Media Center. It also has much better range than my RF keyboard that I have to get up and stand within 4 feet of my computer to use. Programmable TV power and volume buttons.

Cons: One thing that my RF keyboard has over this one is the mouse toggle. On that one, in addition to the mouse buttons on the left side of the keyboard like this one has, you can also left click by pushing in on the toggle itself. On this keyboard, however, you have to put pressure on the toggle just to get the mouse to work.

Also with the mouse toggle, I am having much more ease using my index finger to control it than I am with my thumb, which feels like it should be the natural way to grip the keyboard. Hopefully, as others have said, the mouse will get "broken in" and become easier to use with time.

Other Thoughts: At first I thought my mouse was broken because the volume down button was not working. Then I figured out it could learn signals from other remotes, so I programmed it with my other Media Center remote. The documentation says it comes pre-programmed to control the volume of your PC, so I don't know if running Windows 7 instead of XP like the documentation says it was designed for has anything to do with that.

Batteries

Pros: Works well with Windows XP MCE, Vista, and Windows 7.

Cons: The battery compartment should have plastic between the circuit board and the batteries, so when the batteries leak they don't kill the keyboard

Other Thoughts: planing on buying another one soon but will take the batteries out when I'm not using it.

I don't want to put it down

Pros: So nice to have a good keyboard instead of trying to get my RF keyboard close enough to work reliably... Its so beautiful, feels great in your hands... It's almost like it was made by Apple.

Cons: As noted, the mouse button thing takes some work, but after a weeks its already moving smoother than out of the box.

That and my IR receiver hunt, but that got sorted (see below)

Other Thoughts: I figured I'd be all set with IR reception from my two other remote receivers, (IR603N from Diamond Remote RC118N and OVU104007/00 from an old Dell Remote RC6ir) but neither blinked when pushing buttons. After playing the Driver Hunt game (no help from MS) and lamenting my Win7 x64 Ultimate for not working, I stumbled across a friend's receiver he wasn't using, and it instantly worked...

Came with his HP m8100n, receiver is OVU422000/06, HP part number 5070-2584...

Great IR Wireless Keyboard!

Pros: Works Great with Windows 7 Media Center, good range, can learn functions from other IR Remotes, works with my WinTV HVR-2250 IR Receiver and it’s not a bad looking Keyboard.

Cons: The Mouse Joy Stick is awkward to use at first but over the last few days of use I have gotten a little more use to it. In a couple of Weeks it should be no problem.

Other Thoughts: To Jeskickin, how could you possibly give this Keyboard such a bad rating for being IR Wireless when it is clearly stated in the product description and the Product Specifications that it is an IR Wireless Keyboard?

It’s like buying Monochrome Laser Printer and then giving it a negative Review because it doesn’t print in Color.

Because it is IR Wireless it has the ability to Learn some functions from other IR Wireless Remotes.

I programmed my Microsoft Remote ZV7-00009 to turn the power on and off for the TV and to control the Volume of the 5.1 Surround Sound Receiver. That was the only thing I used the other Remotes for.

IR????

Pros: Designed for Media Center

Cons: IR interface

Other Thoughts: I would love this keyboard, except for one glaring fact, it is IR. That means it needs Windows drivers to work. On that note, goodbye using a boot disk, goodbye editing CMOS.

You need two keyboards if you own this one.

This is a good case of technology over common sense. Technology is simply how, where common sense is why, where and when. Why Microsoft?

Mouse bad, rest good

Pros: IR, no wireless 2.4Ghz interfering with all the other wireless signals. This is the best wireless keyboard option I could find as my existing wireless keyboards use the over crowded 2.4Ghz band and performance was poor.

Cons: The mouse "stick". You have to push down on it with a reasonable amount of force to move the mouse. Takes a little getting used to but it's okay for occasional use. Would have liked a scroll wheel too. Line of site only but I don't need to use it anywhere I'm not looking at the TV that has the sensor on top of it.

Other Thoughts: No drivers necessary, Win7 x32 with existing IR receiver for remote. Just put in the batteries and it worked.

Mouse is a pain, but overall good setup

Pros: IR works great, so long RF distance problems, full lean back experience, media center buttons are well placed and useful

Cons: Mouse is very difficult to use... wish they had an on/off button as opposed to the always pushing down method required, however having read the other reviews I was aware of the deficiency going in.

Other Thoughts: happy with it, don't think I would get another though, still looking for the h*ly grail media center HID.
