2.0 out of 5 stars Functional, but cheaply made, December 12, 2008
This review is from: Adesso MINI SLIMTOUCH TOUCHPAD USB KEYBOARD SILVER WITH BLACK KEYS ( AKB-410US ) (Personal Computers)
This keyboard does function fine on windows XP without any drivers. We have this on our media center pc connected to a largescreen LCD TV. It is used to select media on the hard drive, or on the net. Often we simply play MMORPG games on this PC from our couch.

However it is very cheaply made, and not much fun to use. The keyboard is very light, which is not all bad, but some weight would be helpful when using this in your lap. The mouse keys, have a dreadful feel to them, taking a lot of effort to push down. The touchpad is tiny (as is most of this class of keyboards), making playing games very difficult. Why can't someone build a small keyboard with a touchpad at least the size of the average laptop? A larger laptop sized palmrest would also greatly improve the design.

We purchased both the *Motion* brand and the similar *Odesso* brand and compared side by side. The top plastic is different color, but other than that they are identical. They obviously came from the same assembly line.
