THE KB178RT ADVANTAGE

  • The Perfect Size: The purpose of a keyboard is to input data to the PC. Unfortunately for most HTPC keyboards, they are either too small to touch-type or too big to thumb type. The KB178RT is designed to be perfect sized keyboard for thumb typing.
  • Easy to Navigate: Built-in trackball, left/right mouse buttons, and multimedia hotkeys makes controlling your HTPC a breeze.
  • Rechargeable Batteries: One of the biggest drawbacks of using a wireless keyboard is replacing the battery every so often, especially if extra batteries are not immediatelyavailable. With the KB178RT. this situation can be avoided. Simply connect iy to the USB port of your HTPC periodically and it will always stay charged and ready for use.

Pros
Thumb trackball, nice sized keys, great signal strength
Cons
ALT-F4 requires hitting ALT-FN-F4, doesn't have a windows key
Summary
I've had a couple of HTPC keyboards and this one is by far the best. It has a strong signal, doesn't miss keys often, and re-transmits if it does miss.

The trackball is by far the best and fastest way to navigate your HTPC. I've tried keyboards that have touchpads built in and they just don't work well, with jittery motion that often doesn't get transmitted.

The keys are a nice size on this board. Some such as the Candyboard are very very tiny, almost like an early cell phone. Not good if you have fat fingers. These keys are maybe 2x bigger.

The only defect is my trackball appears to be made of plastic, while other reviews I read on other sites said theirs was metal and felt like solid quality. As a result, the ball seems to have a small defect or imperfection that prevents moving left from time to time, but it doesn't happen often enough to be a huge bother.

It doesn't have a windows key, which means you have to press CTRL-ESC to get the start menu if in windows. That also means you can't use WinKey shortcuts. I don't seem to use them at all on my HTPC anyway but it was a concern for a friend who exclusively uses shortcuts.
