5.0 out of 5 stars very nice htpc keyboard, October 11, 2011
By 
This review is from: Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 with Built-In Multi-Touch Touchpad (Personal Computers)
this keyboard is perfect for htpc, big touchpad surface, left click button on the upper left of the keyboard for hand held operation. came with batteries, so everything was ready right from the box. this thing gets great range, i tried muting and adjusting the volume in the next room of my home and it worked.

three things i would like to see added to this keyboard would be a right click button on the upper left next to the left click button, a vertical scroll wheel, and backlit with a toggle switch or button.

one thing that bothered me at first is that i couldnt turn off the tap-to-click but once i updated the setpoint software a whole new menu opened up for the k400.

options include:
-turn off tap-to-click
-adjust pointer acceleration
-pointer speed
-enable smart move, and pointer trails
-scrolling size
-set F key commands
-disable caps lock, windows start key, scroll lock and insert keys.
-view battery level
-on screen status indicator for low battery, vol changes, lock keys on/off.

i upgraded to the k400 from an rii mini wireless keyboard because the touchpad started to jitter and i got tired of its crappy range.

I have a keyboard similar to the rii, its absolute crap quality if still semi functional.

I love ur review, but i want to clarify something.

You said you can set the F key commands with the set point software. Do you mean like set them to do volume up and down, play, pause etc?

also

Would you have to hold down the fn key then press the f1, f2, f3 keys to access the command set by you?

------------------

Again thanks for the great review but for a HTPC keyboard its surely lacking on the Multimedia keys aside from the vol up vol down. It certainly has all the navigational buttons for sure. I hope i get more than 6 months on the batteries thou. My older Logitech keyboards gave me in excess of 9 months on a single pair of batteries.

Out of curiosity, does this device work prior to the OS loading (say in the BIOS or trying to select a specific OS start up option)?
