    As I'm writing this review with it , this keybard must work. Having said that, I wouldn't want to use it as my main, day to day keyboard. Problems include a very flat profile, which makes it easy to catch keys, especially the CAPS LOCK. There's no CAPS LOCK indicator LED either, so when you're typing into boxes like the one this review is going into, it's possible to type a whole lot in upper case and have to delete it re-do it. The keys are also quite long travel, so if you're a light touch on the keyboard, watch out for missing letters in the middle of words.

    I bought this to go in my sitting room as a sort of giant remote control for a media centre PC and for that it's great. I'm only running Vista Home basic, but the multi-media buttons work with iTunes & BBC iPlayer. I like the way that you can hold the keyboard at either edge and use the trackball & mouse buttons: the keyboard is nice & light too. The trackball is a bit sticky at times but the simple solution is to lick you thumb (perhaps you might not want to share your keyboard with others!) or use a bit of hand-cream on your fingers (so you'll have nicely moiturised hands as an extra benifit!). I noticed another reviewer said the trackball is slow but you can easily solve this by adjust the mouse pointer speed in Windows Control Panel.

    Worth the money for what I wanted but not something to replace a properly laid out keyboard & mouse.

    I'm writing this review on the keyboard in question and have no problems typing at an almost normal speed. Occasionally, it doesn't register a space bar hit but it's not that big of a deal.

    The real problem is with the trackball. It seems to be made of a slightly "sticky" plastic. This means that it doesn't roll smoothly, sticking no matter how hard you press on the ball. The most effective method is to press lightly when moving your thumb over it. This causes the trackball to rotate most of the time but sometimes it gets stuck and your thumb just glides over the stationary ball. Pressing harder on the ball simply increases the friction between the ball and its enclosure, causing it to stick even more.

    The only other issue I've found is that it takes an age to "wake up"/register after resuming the PC from sleep, even after the PC has been awake for a few minutes. I'm putting that down to my nettop's performance more than the keyboard although my old wireless keyboard was useable much sooner than this one after wake from sleep.

    There's a slight bend in the keyboard but mostly you get what you pay for - not very cheap materials but certainly not totally solid. The shortcut keys at the top all perform perfectly well, even in non-Windows Media Center programs.

    This is a good enough keyboard for the price and very occasional use of the trackball but if you're going to be doing any more than a few scrolls per session then look elsewhere - it'll drive you nuts!

    Excellent plug & play keyboard with good key layout and right size. the trackball mouse is like all trackballs, a bit of a hassle but is the best ive come across. it works with xbox which is a plus :D Has a longggggg battery life. Works even when im in another room (not sure why thats useful but hey) and is all in all a wicked bit of kit

    As I'm using linux I was slightly afraid this keyboard might have troubles with my OpenSuSE 11.2 and Debian Squeeze box, esp. the trackball. However, keyboard & trackball worked perfectly with OpenSuSE 11.2 as soon as I had plugged the usb dongle in and synchronized. (Haven't tested it with Debian Squeeze yet.) The media keys worked out of the box as well, I'm quite happy with that.

    The keya work smoothely but the enter key is a bit small for my taste. I seem to catch CapsLock more often than on other keyboards which is a bit annoying but might be solved when I get used to this one better.

    The trackball could be bigger (for professional usage I'm still a big fan of the Logitech Trackman) but it's ok for normal use.

    I am missing a scroll wheel and that's the main reason for giving it only 4 stars. With a scroll wheel I could imagine it as a keyboard for every day use (and I spent most of my working hours in front of PCs plus some spare time) but without a scroll wheel browsing or reading bigger documents isn't quite as easy as it should be. Fine for my personal computer at home though, which I use primarily during my limited spare time.

    So far so good with this piece of kit, I am using it in my living room where i have my pc hooked up to my tv, for this it is perfect and was a much needed replacement for the microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse i bought two years ago. The range is great and the compact single unit means I'm no longer playing hunt the mouse when i put it down. The main problems i have noticed are getting used to the compact keyboard, this is most likely human error rather than product error as i have (as my dear friend would say) shovel sized hands. For those of you that aren't freakily sized like i am its sure to not be an issue. The other issue that is again probably more my issue than design is it doesn't have a middle mouse button. i always use that to quick scroll up and down pages. The page up and page down buttons are conviently located next to the track ball so that is a good alternative. Finally the biggest issue and it seems the one a few people have mentioned is the ball does stick a little bit. Time will tell if this eases off over time with more use.

    All in all a great tool for the front room and a great little way of keeping everything together, won't replace the classic mouse and keyboard on a desk set up but perfect for me....and my giant hands.
