2.0 out of 5 stars Better look elseware..., February 23, 2005

This review is from: Adesso Wireless IR 88-Key Mini Black PS/2 Keyboard with Built-in Trackball ( ACK-573PB ) (Personal Computers)
Ok, when I saw this, i was thinking that it would solve my problem with a faulty mouse and a dead keyboard. oh god was i wrong. it uses IR signals, so you cant even type with your knees up! for $75 you would expect at least some RF. go away from this product, leave your money in some other companys claws.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wireless Keyboard has a sticky mouse, February 22, 2007

For the amount of money I paid, I believe the Taiwanese could have supplied a mouse that doesn't constantly get stuck. It's frustrating and annoying to rub the wheel back and forth until I finally manage to fit the cursor into the little square.

Furthermore the receiver doesn't always receive. The range is not what they say, it is much less and it is not reliable, you can be typing away and it all gets lost no matter how precisely you point the lights.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor IR range., December 21, 2009

Will not work unless you point it right at the receiver. You can't sit on the couch and keep it in your lap because it will be pointing above the TV and the receiver won't pick up the signal. Solution would be to put the IR receiver above the TV. It shouldn't be that sensitive though.

Also, if the IR beam is broken while typing, the receiver will get stuck on a key and keep pressing it until another key is pressed and connection is re-established.

Very poor design. Gets a 2 instead of a 1 because if you point it right at the receiver, it does actually work quite well. It also seems fairly ruggedly built. However, since this is supposed to be used in your lap, it cannot be used as intended and only gets 2 stars.
