Pros
Stylish
Feels solid
Backlit keys with Wireless!
Battery life isn't bad
Cons
Expensive
Summary
Summary
This keyboard looks great, feels like it'll last a long while, and the battery life isn't that bad considering it's a backlit wireless keyboard. The customizable numpad is a nice touch, but you can't change the pictures on the custom screen even though it's an LCD screen.

I've been using it for a HTPC, so a wireless and backlit keyboard is perfect for me. It's really annoying that it's so hard to find one thought. This one was a bit pricey, but it was the only thing I found that would fit my needs. The trackball mouse is a bit annoying to use at times, but I think after a while you get used to it, and since I'm using it with a HTPC, the mouse isn't really that important so I can live with it.

Overall, I love this keyboard, I just wish it would've be a little cheaper.

Pros
Lights up, easy to find in the dark. Slider for the volume.
Cons
Battery Issues, poor range.
Summary
It's a good keyboard if you get it cheap. The lights are bright and typing is easy. the different keypads are useful on my HTPC.

My first unit had a stuck key and NCIX switched it for me, but over the past few months the battery has been very inconsistent. The battery gauge on the display always says it's full.

Recently it completely stopped working for a few days then mysteriously started working again just as I was about to mail it back. I expect it will stop working permanently not long after the mfr. warranty expires.

I paid $50 for this, I think it was too much, but I would probably buy it again if it was $20 or $30. Definitely not worth the original $150 price.

Pros
Works incredibly well, super easy setup and works right off the bat.
Cons
Not sure how to allow it to Wake pc after sleep mode.
Summary
Using it as my media pc keyboard and I dont think i couldve found anything better, if this wasnt on sale I still would buy it. If anyone knows how to allow this to wake the pc msg me , would make the keyboard 100% amazing haha.

Pros
Light, compact, and volume controls are useful
Cons
the reception is bad and touch keypad presses random keys when power is plugged into the keyboard
Summary
My desktop is connected to my TV in the living room so I need to use a wireless keyboard. The keyboard is just 6 feet away from the receiver and I made sure nothing obstructs the connection in between, but sometimes it just disconnects for no reason. Sometimes it's really bothering me when I'm typing because when the reception gets cut off, it's the same as holding down a key. So instead of typing "ncix," I get something like "nciiiiiiiiiiix."

Also, when I plug the power into the keyboard without pressing the key that locks the keypad, it keeps on pressing one of the keys. I forgot to lock the keypad one night and the next day it opened the same webpage so many times that it crashed my new desktop that's running phenom II.

When it's not acting weird, it's a decent keyboard.

Pros
Very nice thin wireless keyboard with nice features
Cons
No possibility of using usb cable instead of wireless
Summary
Bought this as a special price of 29.99$ for my HTPC. So far, it works great for that purpose with the included trackball and the numeric pad which can be used as well for multimedia control (Windows Media Center and Youtube). You can't get wrong with this one but it's not as nicer as the Logitech Dinovo Edge.

Pros
cheap, very convenient, feels likes its built to last
Cons
battery doesnt last long, trackball is too small and not precise enough, and when I plug it in it keeps making clicking noises as if your changing the volume and when I type it adds tons of periods so typing goes like so ........da............v.............i............d works fine when not plugged in.
Summary
worth it if you get it on sale wouldnt pay more than 30$. Only reason I got this was because it was on sale and I only use it for typing online when im laying on the couch, I would recommend this for uses like that if your a gamer i wouldnt recommend this keyboard because it doesnt support wired mode for reasons unknown to me.

Pros
wireless
nice size
trackball
Cons
not detachable battery
lights up while charging, cant turn it off either
somewhat unreliable wireless connection
almost useless touchpad
Summary
I recall it was once on sale for $19.99, I regret that I did not get this for that price. Doesnt mean $39.99 isnt a good deal, though. It still is an OK wireless keyboard to use on a HTPC.

Like I have mentioned on Cons, although it does function with wireless, it is somewhat unreliable when I connect wireless receiver at the back of my HTPC. I thought it shouldnt matter, but it did. When I connect it at the front side, it works pretty well.

When I connect this keyboard with wire to charge, there is no way to completely turn off the LED, which is frustrating. I try to turn this thing off, it wont. After I finish charging, I have to disconnect it then turn if off.

trackball isnt too precise, but its not impossibly hard to use when you get used to it. It took me about an hour or so for me to get used to this.

Touchpad seems nice, and its nice to see a software that allows me to program some of the touchpad keys, but I find myself almost never use the touchpad. Its somewhat hard to "press" the keys, and most of the time, I can usually use my keyboard hotkeys instead. So its almost useless, but it makes it look fancy.

The keystrokes feel just like most other pentagraph keyboards, not extremely better, but not extremely worse, either.

when you turn this keyboard on, you feel seconds of lag as it needs to connect to the computer every time you turn it off or put it on sleep mode.

after listing all these, It looks as if this keyboard is actually pretty bad, but its not. I think it is one of the best wireless keyboard you can get for this price (~$40). It looks sleek, and the trackball makes this keyboard a perfect match with a HTPC. I just hope this keyboard lasts at least few years.

Pros
- typing feels great
- touch screen is very cool. the ability to control your music and activate different apps is very convenient.
- it was charge, plug and play essentially. no problems with connection or drivers
- includes a usb cord as well. even if the wireless magically had a problem the keyboard can still be used just as before with the usb cord. im extremely glad they included it. some of my other wireless devices are not so consider and are left dead if the wireless fails.
Cons
- if you pay full price i doubt you would think it was worth it
- the mouse ball is hard to control. there is no way you can do anything precise with it.
Summary
amazing deal for $40. so many features, by far the most advanced keyboard ive ever owned. id add to my cons that i got mine on sale and i didnt even know it had a mouse ball so it was more a pleasant surprise.
