Cons: - Bluetooth is kinda shotty

Pros: - very light- long range- Trackpad
Comment:
Good keyboard, very light, works out of the box but it doesn't play nice with some bluetooth adapters so you might need to re-sync every so often.

The compromise is that you don't get a numeric keypad but my computer has built in Bluetooth and an HDMI port so this allows me to use my computer on my TV with only this lightweight keyboard on my lap. It's designed for the PS3 but works well with Windows 7. Just try and find a BT keyboard with a pointing device with this quality and price!

I bought this keyboard for my PC. Works perfectly. The keys seem a bit cheap compared to another Logitech KB I bought for only $30 and I wish the touch pad was bigger. I like the two

To all you people out there saying this keyboard is useless because it doesn't have the R1, R2, R3, L1, L2, L3, and PS3 buttons, show me a keyboard that does, and we can talk again. That aside, this is a great keyboard. It it light and the buttons feel great. Overall, a great product.

I bought this to use with my PS3. It was easy to set up and works great. I agree with another review that the keyboard should have a way to turn the PS3 system on. If it can turn it on I don't know how to do it.

I bought this product to use with my new HDTV and laptop with HDMI running between them. The product works great as a bluetooth wireless keyboard. I sit about 10 feet away from the TV when using it and actually experience better reliability with this keyboard than with a more expensive bluetooth keyboard I have in my office. I like that it is thin and light, and that the touchpad is incorporated in to the board. Touchpad works very well. Also when computer is asleep moving the mouse with trackpad wakes the computer and screen in very short time - about 3 seconds. Very occassionally, the bluetooth keyboard seems to lose connection and takes about 30 seconds to find the computer again however I have never had to re-link the keyboard to laptop. Would definitely recommend this keyboard for use with media center in living room for someone looking for full size keyboard with incorporated mouse function.

I purchased this keyboard for our PS3 and it worked exactly as I expected. For the price, I'd say it was an excellent bargain.

This keyboard misses essential buttons (R1, R2, L1, L2, PS3) and the top buttons (power and media stuff) feel super cheap. Would be okay if this was a 50$ keyboard, but I paid 80 freakin' bucks for this!

I am sorry but for all the 5 star reviews I have to wonder if anyone has actually used this thing Fact is the console support only has 4 of 11 buttons from the controller mapped. It does NOT have R1, R2, R3 or L1, L2, L3 or the middle button. Also even though it is blue tooth it will not power on the console. Since most people would be getting this for the web app and media remote functions, missing those options makes this keyboard all but useless. The makers should be ashamed to have brought this to market in such a gimped fashion much less then sell it for 85 bucks

It's a light keyboard; I haven't used it much, but it paired with the PS3 without any problem.

Needed a keyboard and mouse for my HTPC (Win7.) This was the perfect solution. Paired with a RocketFish Bluetooth reciever. Runs great on Win7 64b. Love the touch pad on the side. Turns on and connects immediately. No waiting or manual intervention. Just pick it up from under the couch, turn in on, and you have the power!

Bought this keyboard for a MythTV HTPC. Had a couple issues of the Linux side getting it to pair up, but since then works great. My one issue is the 5 'media' keys return the same scan keycodes as the first 5 function keys instead of the expected XF86PLAY etc. keysyms.

The keyboard and touchpad are great. The two batteries last forever (like 3 weeks with rechargeables). I used it on Linux and Mac without any worries or need for extra driver. Highly recommend it, but like every bluetooth product it's a little overpriced.

This thing performs great, where it used to run at about 65 degrees C at idle it now runs at about 55 under a full load. The plastic feels somewhat cheap and flimsy, however it hasnt broken yet so I think it'll do great.

Cons: No PS button to turn on/off the PS3, weak instructions, can not adjust the mouse speed on the track pad, feels cheep.

Pros: Easy setup, track pad for mouse movements, range,
Comment:
The keyboard works and makes typeing URL's and message a snap. Its range is great; you can type from your couch without any problems. The major issues I have with it are the weak manual; you just have to start pressing buttons to see what happens (start with the F1-F12 keys). My other big complaint is there is no way to adjust the sensitivity of the track pad. I'm not a big fan of track pads in the first place and this one's not helping the cause. Over all decent buy if you get it on sale, I wouldn’t pay full price for it tho.

I have not test it with Linux yet but it works fine with the PS3. The quality is cheaper than the price suggested but there isn't a lot of choice for HTPC keyboard with integrated touchpad.

Really great product, and for $65 I could't let it pass by. Super easy pairing with the PS3. I'm using it for my laptop. It works really good. Kind of complicated at first to install it, but it was because I had disabled a service and now it's ok. Too bad you can't adjust the track pad. It is a little slow (even more than my laptop's)

Cons: No windows keyDoesn't turn on/off the PS3Have to re-sync with PC/PS3 if you want to use it with both

Pros: Very nice lookingBluetoothMedia keysWorks with PC and PS3TrackpadGood battery lifeGood for HTPC
Comment:
I had the USB version, and it was OK. The wireless would be flakey sometimes, and the silver didn't look nearly as nice as this piano black one. It also lacked media keys. Not really worth the price difference over the USB version IMHO, but the USB version seems to be discontinued.Anyway, this the perfect HTPC keyboard, and it's the cheapest one with a built in mouse/trackpad.

Cons: no softare support. If you don't have a bluetooth device you need to get one to use this.

Pros: compact and light, mouse pad
Comment:
I took a chance on this as I wanted a new keyboard but wasn't sure this was a good choice as it is meant to be used promarily with a PS3. It is much lighter then my old Logitech lx700. It looks really great with the shiny black and silver design. The keys have a nice feel. The touch pad is a cool feature but in truth I rarely use it. You have to have a bluetooth device to use this. They have these super miniature USB bluetooth devices now. I got a Kensington one. It is tiny. I have the Kensington Bluetooth attatched to a Belkin USB extension cable. The keyboard takes two double a batteries which seem to last at least a few months. I turn the keyboard off when I don't use it but I am not sure I think it hibernates? When you don't use the keyboard you sometimes have to hit the keyboard a few times and wait for it to connect if you have been doing something else. Others find this annoying. I don't mind it. Also bluetooth sometimes disconnects also if you completely leave it and do other things. to connect you just double click the bluetooth icon ten click on your keboard icon and select  connect. Then enter the 4 digit number and enter to connect back. It is a very simple keyboard with no number pad and no dedicated program buttons like on other Logitech keyboards. One very cool feature is that to the left of the mouse pad there is a scroll up and down so with your finger you can control the volume on some programs. Some gamers don't like to use wireless keybaords for gaming but I found this fine and fast. This is about half the weight of my old Logitech and feels like the quality I am used to with Logitech products. There is no software by Logitech to set up shortcuts etc. but not a big deal.

Pros: Works great with my ps3
Comment:
I bought this primarily for my ps3 to make websurfing/typing easier and it does it great. Only problem is that I dont have a whole lot of batteries at hand but that was fixed really quick by buying rechargeable batteries. Would recommend to others if they needed a bluetooth keyboard.

Cons: Needs a seperate (but inexpensive) dongle to connect to a PC. No windows key (Why they added mouse keys I have no idea). Missing some multimedia keys (Mute/Volume) but you cant use these on a PC anyways

Pros: Outstanding range, nice and light, built in touchpad for easy navigation. Looks great on the coffee table.
Comment:
Nearly Perfect HTPC keyboard. Bought this as a replacement to my Logitech wireless keyboard that had horrible range (like 6 feet) and a mouse that refused to work on anything but a mousepad. Works great. Using an old Bluetooth 2 USB adapter (over a year old) with no problems in Vista 32bit. Required no drivers.
