2.0 out of 5 stars Wireless keyboard, terrible range., 25 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seemingly no manufacturer can make a wireless keyboard that works from 1.5m away with no obstructions. This holds true here. The perks of having a wireless keyboard are lost for many buyers when you no freedom to sit any appreciable distance from the receiver without *constant* drop-outs. I have tried everything, even going as far as to use a male-to-female USB lead to mount the receiver higher up on my TV to try and get better range - to no avail.

Therefore, this keyboard has no appreciable benefit over using a wired keyboard, butcomes with the downside of requiring batteries. It only gets two stars because the buttons have a nice tactile feel to them.

I have since moved the receiver even closer (1m range) and it STILL has frequent drop-outs.

Magnetic tip is very useful for getting those screws out of even the most cramped spaces!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor range and connectivity., 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably alright for some devices that don't require a perfect connection, but for use with a gamepad is terrible. Drops out continuously at ranges over a meter.

Don't know how the manufacturer can possibly advertise this as up to 50m range, it's a straight up lie!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor range, poor layout., 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Typing this from another keyboard.

I will preface this by saying I wanted to use this for light gaming from my couch.

This keyboard looks stylish, but it's about the only thing it has going for it. The main problem it suffers from appears to be that of incredibly poor range. From just over a meter away this keyboard seems to frequently drop out for a second or two - which totally writes off this keyboard as a viable solution for even light gaming. Further to this, the keyboard suffers from an INCREDIBLY poor layout - which is *partially* my own fault for not checking in the pictures (although it is advertised as 'UK LAYOUT'). There are no Fn keys for turning off the touchpad, there is no PrtScn button, whilst there are KEYBOARD buttons for LMB and RMB (funnily, in a terrible place). Why the manufacturer decided to give separate keys for mouse buttons despite already having that functionality on the touchpad, whilst NOT providing simple buttons like 'PrtScn' is beyond me. The left control key is also moved to accommodate these mouse buttons, meaning it is a pain to get to. The apostrophe key is moved to the very bottom right of the keyboard, meaning it is also an absolute pain to get to. The space bar is packed painfully tight to Alt, AltGr, and the Windows key, meaning whenever you type you run a HIGH risk of randomly opening up other windows or doing things you don't mean to do constantly. Many of the keys are infact SO SMALL that even with concentration, it is pretty hard to only hit one key at a time (for example, the arrow keys are so small that they are LESS than an index fingers width - and I have skinny fingers, promise!).

Incredibly, incredibly dissatisfied with this keyboard, and am immediately returning it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its made for hardcore fans,, 16 May 2014
And if you are a hardcore fan, then you will love it.

For anyone saying its too short - it took me 18 hours to 100% it, for £20. Hell, I barely play some other SP games for half that long but pay full retail for them. The gameplay and graphics are absolutely fantastic. Even after completing it, I still play it often because it is hands down the best game available for the PS4. TPP is gonna be amazing.
