Pros Great product, except for the mouse.
Cons Mouse is the worst POS ever.
Summary If it weren't for the virtually unusable mouse, this product would be a 9. It has an eraser-style mouse that is the worst I've ever encountered in 20+ years of computing. It is absolutely unusable...incredibly difficult and frustrating to use. Doesn't somebody test the early production examples to see if they actually work?
Otherwise, it has great range and layout. The only other thing that keeps it from being a 10 is there is a fair amount of unused real estate that could be the home for some additional useful keys for a web browser or e-mail program. Additionally, the keyboard itself isn't backlit, only the remote control keys, so typing Messenger messages in the dark still isn't possible.
Pros Very well layed out and feels great
Cons Mouse stinks, have to type real slow to get it to recognize it
Summary I got this keyboard about a week ago, made myself try it for at least 2 full weekends, and plan to return it today. It's well designed and feels great, but there were just two things I couldn't get past. First, the mouse is unuseable... I found it utterly useless and I use my laptop's pointer and touchpad primiarly... couldn't believe I couldn't get used to to this. Also when I was typing, it would miss every few letters... even when I was within 10' with a clear line of sight. It's too bad because I really liked it. Really should be Bluetooth with a trackball for a mouse... that would just about nail it for me.
