Great mini keyboard for HTPC,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: iPazzPort™ ProMini Bluetooth Mini Wireless Keyboard, Backlit with Multi-Touchpad / Laser Pointer for Google Nexus 7 / Google Android TV / iPhone 4 4S 3GS 3G / Samsung Galaxy S S2 S3 / HTPC / PC / Iphone / Android 3.0 Tablet / Mac OS KP-810-10BTT (Electronics)
I bought this keyboard with the intention of using it on a HTPC, and so far all expectations have been met. The HTPC setup I have is a bit different than most folks; instead of a dedicated HTPD computer I'm running one W7 Ult computer with a monitor in my office and my flatscreen in the living room. Life is good, until you want two keyboards and discover the functionality issues caused by driver conflicts (my other desktop is a MS wireless). On a whim, I went with this bluetooth mini keyboard hoping to get past the conflicts, and the result was exactly as hoped for. Installation of this product is easy, simply insert the bluetooth dongle into your computer, up comes the driver installed/bluetooth setup window in windows, turn on the mini keyboard, click on bluetooth setup window in the appropriate location to enable bluetooth device search, and press bluetooth device on mini keyboard. The bluetooth setup window in W7 displays a unique to the keyboard number, type this on your mini keyboard, and you're done.
Working distance between the keyboard and the computer is ~20 feet, HOWEVER, I am going through a wall and a TV set when the mini keyboard is used in my living room for the HTPC. A usb extension cable could be in order to get that last few feet of range or move the computer in the office to eliminate the TV from shielding the signal. I also noticed that the ins and prt screen buttons on the mini keyboard don't work for some reason, but this is not really a concern on a HTPC. Also, it is possible that my running two keyboards on one computer is causing this.
All in all, a great product that works very well. Buyers take note that the previous rendition of this device, model #KP-810-1-BT had a variety of complaints, including range. This does not seem to be the case with this model.
