It is a great remote if computer is connected to TV.
Libby G. Padgett
Placement of the mouse's Left and Right buttons should be BELOW the trackball...not above.
Candeass
Ignoring the mouse it feels well made and looks fairly nice with satisfying key presses.

I bought the Lenovo wireless keyboard to compliment my Dell Zino HD as a hometheater pc. I even waited to set up the Zino HD until this keyboard arrived.

What I do Like:
The size is right. Installing was a complete breeze. No drivers required. Worked right out of the box on Windows 7. Keys on the keyboard are quick and responsive (if you're pushing the right one). It aesthetically compliments the Zino HD with the Tangerine lid flawlessly.

What I don't Like:
While the size maybe right the weight of it is not. It's very light and it almost gives it the feeling of "cheap." The scrolling ball for the mouse is ultra sensitive to the touch. While the device is light enough for one hand, the mouse feature makes it feel like a two handed job when resizing a webpage or moving things around. It would be much better if the Left Click and right click buttons were on the back of the device, like a trigger and or if the mouse scroll ball could be tapped to execute as well.

For crying out loud, if you're going to push it for what I know everyone is purchasing for, "a home theater PC," the keyboard should have been backlit. Who can search hulu in a dark room with this device? I found myself continuously using the on the screen keyboard because I couldn't see in low light situations. The key buttons have a slight beveled feel and aren't raised, which makes it a little harder to type. I have small hands, so I know the fat fingered person might want to skip this one. There are no function keys, (F1,etc...) at least as far as I can tell. I had to plug in another keyboard to access the F12 feature of my computer. Picks up fingerprints easy on the gloss part of the finish.

Overall, it's just "OK." I wouldn't spend $60 on it, so I'm glad I got it for half price.

I bought the Lenovo mini keyboard/mouse to use as a remote with my HTPC, after a few days of use here is what I have decided.....

First of all the tracking ball is too light on its feet. If you try to operate it with one hand you end up moving the mouse while attempting to click the button. Which moves me to my next complaint; as others have mentioned, the left/right click buttons should have been placed underneath for the nice video game "trigger" functionality that we all love so much. Also the unit is extremely light, which makes it feel like a kids play toy.

My biggest problem is the range. I have my computer mounted behind an LCD on the wall and sitting about seven feet away I am constantly fighting for signal. To make matters worse the keys are tiny and the unit is not back lit, so navigating in a dark room is pretty much impossible.

Despite my complaints, there really is not much else out there at this price point. I think I may take the advise of another review and just use my Iphone with the logitech app, which is far from perfect, but it is free. . Note: for 30 dollars the lenovo unit is fine, not worth 60 dollars though, wait for V2 with back-lighting and trigger mouse and bluetooth for added range.

I am also considering purchasing the Logitech dinovo mini, which runs about $120, or the gyration air remote

I bought one of these for my HTPC to replace a larger wireless keyboard/trackpad combo that was getting in the way. First off, the form factor is fantastic. It fits perfectly into your hand and, when it works, makes for easy navigation of menus and the web. That said, "when it works" is the issue. I have a small media room and sit about 6 feet from the entertainment center containing my TV and HTPC, and at that range I am constantly fighting with this thing to get my commands in. The mouse pointer lags or stalls completely and key presses are missed repeatedly. If I walk over next to the computer, it works fine, but since the whole point was to control the HTPC from my easy chair, that's mission failure.

First, I didn't buy the Lenovo N5901 on Amazon because I found a great deal on it through Lenovo Direct. Big mistake, but we will come to that.

Summary: Very difficult to use, very poorly designed, almost non-existent documentation, and no manufacturer support. Worst new product experience ever.

The device was almost unusable for me. The trackball is very imprecise, and don't even think of trying to use this thing one-handed. Every time I got my pointer over what I want to click, tried to left click (assuming right-handed operation), I'd brush the trackball, because you have to reach over it to click. Left click with left hand and right click with right hand was the only way I could do anything. The click buttons are smooth and slippery, and not actual buttons, but rather a flexible part of the plastic body and took quite a firm press to make them work. This makes the accidental brush of the trackball more likely to happen, even when using two hands.

There is no scrolling feature at all, so off to the right side of the screen you must go for the scroll bar, or use page up/down or the poorly placed arrow keys. The page down thing sounds easy enough right, well, it isn't, and we'll come to that shortly.

No backlight, and while it is a qwerty keyboard, all your other keys are in different locations, making it unusable in low light for most everything because you can't find the @ : or / easily. I'm sure if you used it long enough you would eventually commit it to memory. In my case, I wasn't planning to use this enough to "get used to it", because I would use a real keyboard and mouse for anything significant.

See those little tiny rounded shift keys in the lower corners. Good luck pressing and holding those.
