I have exhausted all forums and IT help.

I was impressed how the keyboard felt better than my Apple keyboard and how it feels great like the quick and light touch keyboard in the Lenovo Thinkpad laptops.

So it is not the range of the bluetooth connection.

My beloved TrackPoint is back finally in a wireless implementation, but it just lacks the range and reliability to use as an HPTC remote control. As a desktop keyboard or tablet companion, it's perfect.

The boys over at CNET can't stop hating on the TrackPoint, but it makes sense for one reason: touch typing. For those of us that touch type at better than 50 WPM, it's easy to control the mouse with the TrackPoint stick, since we don't have to move our hands off the keyboard.

For me, any kind of finger-joystick control for the mouse is better and more enjoyable than a touch pad. A touch screen is a different story, but if you type a lot, give this old design a chance.

There is a learning curve, but just go into the settings and crank the TrackPoint sensitivity down all the way. In time, you'll be able to turn the sensitivity up, and eventually you'll be able to use it faster than a touch pad.

But this keyboard just lacks range. At 6 feet from my laptop, the mouse connection becomes wonky and drops a lot. My computer could never do Bluetooth well, so hopefully your mileage will vary. I really wanted this keyboard to act as my HTPC remote, replacing my current favorite, the Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 with Built-In Multi-Touch Touchpad (920-003070).

Also please consider the original USB version of this keyboard, the ThinkPad USB Keyboard with TrackPoint.

This is essentially the same "island style" keyboard included in the current generation of Thinkpads, including the latest generation trackpoint. The typing experience is probably 90 or 95% as good as the laptop, dinged only by how small and light the keyboard is, so it likes to move around. The battery will last for 2-3 days of moderate use before needing a quick recharge. The major letdown is the radio range. I sit about 3 feet from my laptop in its dock, and if I move the keyboard even a few inches further away, the mouse begins to lag or even stop working. If I go a full 4 feet away, even the keyboard stops working. I know bluetooth is a short range protocol, but the range rating on the BT radio inside the laptop is 10 meters, so you'd think the keyboard could manage at least 2 meters (~6.5 feet).

I've ordered the wired USB version of the keyboard as a replacement for this extremely disappointing implementation.

I am a huge fan of the trackpoint. Since I work very rapidly and also type at roughly 100 words per minute, I find that using the trackpoint which allows me to keep my hands on the keyboard while moving the mouse pointer is really great.

The keyboard looks pretty nice and typing is soft like laptop keyboards - that's something I like. I don't like it when keyboards click a lot.

The poor rating results from the awful bluetooth connection. They keyboard is situated roughly 4 feet away from my laptop. At its worst, it gets cut off every now and then, requiring me to stop using it for roughly 10 seconds before it becomes operable again. The trackpoint also lags very frequently: the mouse pointer continues moving for roughly 0.5 seconds which is a considerable amount of space, given that I use it on the most sensitive setting. Note: it stalled 3 times while I typed this review.

It's truly a huge disappointment. I wanted to like it. I love my laptop's trackpoint and wanted to find something like it for desktop use. Unfortunately, the frustrations this keyboard creates are greater than any benefits it provides. Going to return it to Lenovo right away.

It just awesome... everything works fine, except that in my ubuntu OS it is still impossible to use FnLk so I have to use Fn if I want to press F1-F12. In the Windows it works OK. Anyway the keyboard is good and I hope someone from Ubuntu community will suggest some workaround soon.

Pros: 1. identical to your Thinkpad laptop keyboard, you don't need to develop a habit to a different layout; 2. very high quality mechanism: short travel, distinct actuation, low noise; 3. Trackpoint tremendously increases my productivity: i'm a touch typist and now i never ever need to move my wrists!

Cons: 1. impossible to swap Ctrl and Fn keys as you can do on a Thinkpad laptop; 2. my keyboard had a defective key, i had to perform a surgical operation to repair it; 3. pairing on Linux is a pain, consider buying a wired variant for Linux.

I would probably put four stars if there were a TrackPoint-enabled alternative. But there isn't a single competitor, so this keyboard is a king.

It's pretty rare to find exactly what I'm looking for in any device. This is a welcome exception.

The Trackpoint and keyboard on this device perform exactly like their laptop equivalents, which I consider top of the line. No wasted space on a clumsy trackpad. Build is solid, as small as it could possibly be while providing a full keyboard experience. MicroUSB rechargeable battery is a big plus. Just realized that it has a NFC radio built-in for pairing the device (works on my Android phone and tablet).

The device worked right out of the box with my Nexus 7. Provides a cursor and keyboard input as you'd expect which can be further enhanced/tweaked via External Keyboard Helper app.

My only gripe is that I don't care for the position of some of the keys. Delete, PgUp and PgDn keys, in particular. And what the heck is PrintScreen doing between right Alt and Ctrl? But these are the same as the laptop keyboards.

This keyboard is worth the cost.

[Edit] The Trackpoint does seem to experience much more than normal drift. It's annoying, but not a show stopper in my case. This seems to be a design flaw rather based on some other comments and reviews.
