5.0 out of 5 stars Good value light-weight all-in-one keyboard., 11 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: POINT USB 2.0 Media Centre Slim Keyboard With Touchpad
We use this POINT keyboard with mouse-pad to control a tiny computer connected to a large living-room TV, so it gets a lot of use in the evenings (especially when using an online TV guide to argue over what to watch/record that evening) and it is inevitably dropped more often than most keyboards. But after five months regular use it is still working happily - and pretty quietly compared with some keyboards, which is helpful.
Key action is light, as is the keyboard/mouse-pad assembly itself. Not a lot of feel for a touch-typist, and not quite as good as (say) the Keysonic ACK-540U+ Black Mini Keyboard with Integrated Smart Touchpad which we have had for a year longer. The POINT mouse-pad is also not -quite- as good, and the mouse-pad switches are a bit less positive than the Keysonic.
But the Keysonic is currently two and a half times more expensive, and not significantly better for our usage with the living-room TV. So the POINT keyboard wins our vote for this application.
Recommended for its intended purpose - controlling a Media-centre TV setup.
For more formal use such as adding serious typing/mousing facilities to a system which is used all day we would probably prefer the Keysonic, which is a good bit heavier too.
.
PS We prefer a wired connection for keyboards and mouse-things and joysticks etc. Wireless ones have been a joyless experience for us, with lag, frequent new batteries/recharging and unreliability spoiling the experience. Add the wireless price factor and we now stick with long USB leads routed under the furniture. They Just Work.

The better quality Keysonic keyboard mentioned in the review is now within a pound of the price of this one. So that's what I'm ordering now!
