Customer Reviews

The drivers on the disc for Windows 7 did not work.

The only drawback i've found is sometimes the functions of the touchpad for zooming, scrolling, etc. just don't work.

And to enter the windows password, I have to hit the first key several times until it gets recognized.

This was a purchase made two weeks ago now that I can't decide if I regret or not. The keyboard does work and works well a good range (10 feet room is not big enough to try farther) from the computer. The media keys work very well, the install was simple and efficient, and the touch pad calculator is bar none awesome.

However, not all the keys work consistently, I have a Logitech S 510 wireless desktop that I have had for two years and it never drops keys as far as I can tell. I do write quite a lot, thousands of pages a year not joking, so I am picky about my key board. I would never hold this item up to the same standard however dropping approximately one key in ten is not acceptable for typing more than a search into Google. There are days that the keyboard works better than others as well, which I just can't figure out.

I have no idea how fast it eats batteries, it still seems to work with the ones it came with two weeks later. Finding "home" on the key board is also rather difficult, for touch type'ers out there, as the razed points on the keys are rather weak all the keys feel the same. However in defense of this key board it is nice and compact feels sturdy and pushes keys together to make the whole contraption more ergonomic.

It also goes to sleep, wakes up with Esc key, which takes getting used to but might be saving batteries which I like.

Final verdict touch pad great, media buttons awesome, calculator key pad absolutely ingenious, and keyboard for "typing" sucks!

I bought this keyboard to use with my HTPC. I was in need of a wireless USB keyboard and mouse that was affordable and reliable. Having been using notebooks almost exclusively for the last five years, I have really gained an appreciation for the touchpad. I was so glad to find a low priced wireless keyboard with a touchpad built in. What's even better is that it supports a number of different gestures. I really like using two fingers to scroll and being able to quickly increase the text size from the pad.

I have been using it for a while now and it has been, for the most part, reliable. I was noticing a lot of dropped keystrokes but I thought that I was too far away from the USB dongle or something was obstructing the path. It has gotten to be quite annoying, though. I have to type much slower in order to avoid having to go back and edit every couple of words.

A previous review mentioned that it was hard to find home on this board. I hadn't thought of it like that but I agree completely. It took quite a bit of use before I finally started being able to type comfortably with this keyboard. It's like riding a bicycle; once you finally get used to it, it isn't bad at all. It was upsetting, though. I've never had that much trouble adapting to a keyboard.

My latest issue with this keyboard has really caused a great deal of frustration. For some reason, I am now unable to drag and select the way I used to. I can still make selections but it'll stop as soon as I lift my finger off of the pad. This makes it nearly impossible to select large masses of text; I can only select whatever I can drag over in one sweep since I can't reposition my finger. This also makes it hard to move files from one folder to another. I can barely put up with it now.

For what it's worth, this product is in fact known as the Ortek WKB-2000; drivers are available at the manufacturer's website.

After receiving the product I anxiously plugged it in and tried it out.. Windows 7 installed the driver software.. It was working great, then I put in the installation disc that came with it "not recommended" The device stopped working.. I tried re-installing several times and also completely uninstalling all software and drivers.. Still could not get it to work again.. I had to do a system restore before the point where I used the disc that came with it.. It started working again right after the system restore.. SO DON'T USE THE DISC... Win 7 will find it and install within seconds... Other than that, when the board initially boots, the numeric lock key will be engaged, you'll need to turn it off to type.. I'm using the board about 15ft. away from my pc.. there has been no connection problems from this distance.. I'm very happy with the purchase..

I bought this 2 months back and it's so cool that the wireless keyboard comes with a smart touchpad. It's very easy to install. I connected my notebook to my LCD TV and it just works great for me sitting from the couch. The only issue I faced was after installing Win 7, the smart touchpad wasn't working with the scroll and other finger features. Other than that, I just like this for the money I paid.

The CE Compass wireless keyboard is a really satisfying purchase for what you get. I'll divide this up in a pro vs con:

Pros
First off, the price point is very good. For $40 you get a wireless keyboard with a slew of multimedia keys and probably the biggest draw, the smart touchpad. The touchpad is fan-freaking-tastic. It is my favorite part of the whole keyboard and is PERFECT for a home theater setup. Great sensitivity and the pad space is decent. Range is very good, with no lost input at a distance of 15 feet. Keyboard returns from sleep state very quickly. Keyboard layout is super convenient, which is what I'm looking for when I want to watch a movie. The location of the mouse pad and the multimedia buttons allows you to hold it like a game controller, and it is overall effortless. While it is primarily focused on the home theater arena, it makes for an excellent tool for work conferences (Convenience of not being limited by a cable!).

Cons
Honestly, for the price it is really hard to complain about anything. I am however extremely picky about keyboard finish and construction quality, which I have to knock a star off for; the overall feel of this leaves me unimpressed. Very simplistic and not very exciting to look at. Keys and multimedia buttons wiggle in place, multimedia buttons are boring. Keyboard makes noises if you shake it. Those who like tactile key reponse and noise will like this. I like buttons and keys to be firm, silent, and have some degree of interest. While I dig how the USB receiver tucks in nicely on the back of the keyboard, the receiver can stick out far if using front USB ports (Making it an easy target for shins and knees!).
