Pros

Cons
keyboard to sensitive and mouse not enough by default

Pros
small and unobtrusive
Cons
poor signal strength
poor tactile feel
crummy trackpad
Summary
using it for an HTPC with XBMC for windows. Feeling a little mixed about it. Looks alright with the HTPC setup, but actual function is on the weaker side. very difficult to navigate windows. keys are hard to press and don't feel good. the completely square layout (all keys totally lined up against eachother) is a little disorienting too. it gets the job done.

Pros
small
backlight
comes with built-in rechargeable batteries and charging/usb cable
Cons
Good at first, but started dying after 7 months
trackpad on small side (nitpicky)
Summary
Worked well with my HTPC for the first 7 months but then started
losing tracking and not registering keypresses, even when plugged into charging cable, getting progressively worse to point where it is now completely useless.

Pros
perfect for a HTPC and XBMC.
Cons
none
Summary
I purchased this for my HTPC running XBMC, works like a charm right out of the box.Nice back lighting on all the keys with a push of a button. The touchpad is also very responsive. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a way to control their HTPC.
Works well with Windows Media Center, and XBMC. Solid 10 out of 10.

Pros
small, compact, handy
Cons
battery opperated
Summary
was looking for a small light keyboard for my home theater pc, something that i could use on the couch without a large keyboard or mouse. i found this reasonable for the price considering it was bluetooth. good produce

Pros
compact design good for HTPC
Cons
compact design can be cumbersome
Summary
Pocket sized ,sleek,slim design, good for typing emails,chat and games. Wireless Laser pointer, e-pointer, Touchpad, QWERTY full-function mini keyboard. Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

Initially I had the same problems with characters repeating and delays in reaction time. If I plugged the Bluetooth dongle into a USB dock, the keyboard had problems functioning. But if I plugged the Bluetooth dongle into a USB port on my computer, the problems went away.

Neat impulse item but I will eventually replace it with a wireless keyboard.

Pros
Compact
Good key response
Cons
Touchpad not that smooth
Summary
Compact size makes it ideal for travel. Setup is a breeze. Good key response, but that of touchpad needs some improvement. The laser pointer is a cool addon.

Pros
- Backlight is excellent.
- Laser pointer quality is fantastic.
- Wireless Bluetooth connectivity.
- Come with it's own Bluetooth USB dongle.
- On/off switch, which most keyboard don't have.
Cons
- Poor wireless communication strength.
- Track pad is so jittery, it's useless.
- People with large fingers can only mash keys.
- Key presses get stuck, repeating endlessly.
- Hard time registering multiple keys, like CTRL+Z.
- Sealed internal battery.
Summary
This product can only be exchanged for the exact same model, so make sure it is truly what you want before ordering. I should have researched it more thoroughly and closely inspected all of the complaints by other owners. It seems to work ok for some folks, so it may come down to luck of the draw. I'm not lucky at all, so I guess I just got one of the bad ones. Even if it had no bugs, my fingers are too large to use it effectively. As a result, I have no choice but to sell it online as used. Too bad since it looked like a really great keyboard for HTPC use. If the battery was user replaceable, I might have kept it as a cat toy. My kitty absolutely loves the laser pointer aspect of it. I give it two stars, as I would definitely not purchase it again.

Pros
compact, light, backlight
Cons
range, touchpad sensitivity
freezes intermittently
Summary
i just bought this and i am using it to compose this review. although not ideal, still the best and most compact thing i have found for my htpc.
pros - compact, light,good key response
-backlight, laser pointer
- comes with bluetooth dongle stored in keyboard
cons
- range with bluetooth has sudden drop  off
- i increased the dongle sensitivity by using a usb extension cable routed to the top of my tv
- touchpad is ok but somewhat laggy compared to my wifi mouse
i am still waiting for the ideal htpc keyboard
but this works well for now
a bit expensive for what this is
i would value this as a 20 dollar item
bought it on sale for 55
regular price is almost 70

** July 21, 2011 - I took the candyboard back today and exchanged it for the NON-bluetooth version. Unfortunately, the bluetooth version would intermitently hang/freeze. I think it was trying to renegotiate the bluetooth handshake.

This is documented elsewhere on the net as well. For some reason, the Rii Mini which is the same board; does not mention it in the online reviews. I presume it is a firmware problem
