I have found that the features of this keyboard might not really serve a person on a desktop well. For instance, the F# buttons can only be used while holding down the "fn" button in favor of having media buttons on the top row. Also, the finger navigation, while it can be convenient, is too unwieldy for use at all times and a mouse would always be preferable to this feature. Cumbersome would be the best way to describe the feeling of using it. I also dislike how the "left click" equivalent is on the top left corner and the finger sensor is on the top right. That forces the use of two hands instead of the one it takes with a standard mouse, which makes it a bit impractical for a desktop user to take advantage of this the finger navigator. These features lead me to conclude that this keyboard would best serve somebody on a home theater type PC or substitute a laptop's keyboard, which is why I'm awarding it a 4 instead of a 3. Also, coming with 2 Duracell batteries doesn't hurt either.Read more ›
But there a so many problems with this keyboard I really can't recommend it.
o It randomly locks up from time to time, even under light to moderate use. No idea why. I'll be right in the middle of typing something or moving the mouse and it'll just die. No power switch on this puppy, so you have to flip it over, pop out one of the batteries, let it sit for a couple of seconds, then put the battery back in to get your keyboard / mouse back.
o The wireless timeout for the keyboard is set WAY, WAY, *WAY* too low, and as far as I can tell there isn't any way to adjust it. The keyboard automatically shuts itself off -- and no, I'm not kidding about this -- HALF A SECOND after your last keypress. Same goes for the mouse. Half a second delay in your movement, and it has to "wake up" before your mouse cursor starts moving on the screen again. I cannot BEGIN to tell you how REALLY ANNOYING it is to have to constantly retype something because the keyboard wasn't paying attention. It's not distance from the system, it's not batteries, it's not interference. It's just a really bad decision on HP's part (pathetic attempt to extend the battery life, I guess) and an even worse decision to not provide a way to adjust it.
o This keyboard should have been using Bluetooth instead of wireless. Bluetooth would've worked a LOT better, IMO.Read more ›
My last HTPC input device, the former champion of couch surfing, was the Logitech diNovo, an aggravating clamshell design with too-small keys, a crummy finger trackpad, and lackluster battery life (thanks to the keyboard backlighting). HP's Mini has none of these problems. By comparison, the HP Wireless Mini Keyboard can be had for 1/2 to 1/3 the price, and is a better device overall. It's so good that I've been writing reviews about the HP Mini across the net, something I've never done before!
This keyboard definitely comes packed with great features for the price. It is about the size of a netbook keyboard, stylish in a minimalist way, and fairly thin yet sturdy and well made. It's just right for on-top-of-your-lap typing. The keys have a nice feel to them and respond well to key presses. The built in optical finger navigation works very well given the size of the input surface and the high resolution of my TV (1920x1080). The keyboard uses two AA batteries and battery life has been excellent so far, a fact that is no doubt helped along by the lack of backlighting and LED toggle indicators.
On the down side, the lack of backlighting could be a problem in low light situations, and the lack of LED indicators makes it impossible to tell if a toggle key, such as Caps Lock, is engaged without actually typing.Read more ›
