It's a bit smaller then it looks.

I hooked this to my 8+ year old laptop (MS Windows 7) that is serving as my Home Theater PC / Skype machine. The dongle plugged right in, autoconfigured in seconds and the keyboard was functional right away.

I purchased this one because not many keyboards have mouse buttons on the opposite side of the track pad. In this case, there is an addition set of mouse buttons on the left side of the keyboard, as well as two buttons on either side of the track pad. So no need to move and readjust the keyboard to use the mouse (ie, click and drag). It does this VERY well.

The battery is a common rechargable battery (Blackberry I believe), and therefore somewhat future proof.

Very nice little unit. Wish I could have it in black. But that's clearly a super minor deal.

I had a regular keyboard for my Google TV in the living room. It's big and clumsy, pain in the neck to move around. Earlier this month, after a coffee incident by my wife, the space key stopped working and i finally got the excuse to retire it.

The size of the keyboard is ideal. My not so giant hands can handel it well. It fits perfectly in my entertainment center drawer along with all my other remotes, where it belongs. Setup is a breeze and it works like a charm with my logi tech revue . My wife likes its simplicity and easy to use. What can i said.

The price is about right: I don't want to spend $60-70 on a name mini-keyboard unless you want to use your keyboard 45 feet away from the monitor - which is rather absurd.

I was looking for a mini keyboard to use with a Win 7 computer, a Bluray player/media hub and Xbox 360. This keyboard worked great with all three and was more comfortable to use than the N7. The ONLY reason I didn't give this keyboard five stars is because it is not backlit; but I did like it enough to order two more.

This works well with my windows 7 64bit and W8 64bit Home Premium PCs. A good little device. I would recommend buying one.

A wireless keyboard/mouse that uses a user-replaceable rechargeable cell phone battery that goes into standby mode, with media shortcuts,a touch pad, and ergonomically shaped to not hurt your hands while you thumb away at adequately spaced keys? Shut up and take my money.

I use it with my Raspberry Pi and it is very helpful, easy to use and was fairly intuitive in its layout.

The mini keyboard works nicely with my mini stick PC. It was easy to set up and it was picked up quickly by the mini PC.

works great but has a few issues such as the mouse pad is a little jumpy, but once
you get use to it it works fine overall one of the best out their for the price. Fyi- this is
the rechargable model so keep that in mind when buying.

The size of this device is perfect. The quality of the materials seem durable and are nice to the touch. The button layout on the keyboard could use some work. I dislike the location of the "/" and the Delete button being above the Backspace button is problematic.

The capable distance for the remote is bad and you have to be in the line of sight of the remote receiver. If your foot, a glass on your coffee table or anything else gets in the way - the remote craps out.

The track pad's location is in a convenient spot, but moving the mouse around in a precise way can be clunky - mind you, my cursor size, the screen resolution, the DPI settings have all been increased in Windows 7 to make tv navigation easy as possible, but I still find myself spending more time trying to get a mouse to hit an "Ok" or "cancel" button than it should take.

I would recommend the Android app "Unified Remote" with an Android phone that has a keyboard (like a Droid4) over this product. With Unified Remote, the phone screen is used as a much larger track-pad and the screen glass is a far nicer surface to swipe upon. In Unified Remote, a two finger tap on the screen right clicks and a long one finger press "grabs". This seems far more natural on a tv rather than the old laptop approach the Esky remote takes by having actual left and right click mouse buttons to be used in conjunction with the trackpad when you want to grab and move something.

The screen-as-a-pad in Unified Remote for Android is far more precise and speedy than the touchpad here on the Esky remote. Unfortunately, phones are generally one-person items that stay attached to the owner and not something you want used as a general remote control for your livingroom.

I think this Esky remote is probably the best HPTC remote you're probably going to find on the market - but someone really should come up with something based on Android and the Unified Remote server/client software. It's far more precise, faster to use and has lots of extra goodies that a plain remote doesn't have. Also - by working over your wifi you don't have to worry about being in the line of site of your device nor worry about being more than 3-4 feet away from the remote receiver.

I wish I knew about Unified Remote before I purchased this product. If all i was doing was running XBMC, then this remote would do. But I need to actually use Windows, a browser, and other applications and while this device does everything i want - i just feels it does it badly. I almost prefer a full sized mouse and keyboard.
