Best HTPC keyboard hands down!!!
This is the best HTPC keyboard out there for your Windows machine. For starters, I am using this on my Windows 8.1 Pro custom built HTPC in my living room. I sit roughly 10-15 feet from my 55 inch TV.
Touchpad - I have had zero problems with the touchpad and it works flawlessly for my application. The movements are smooth and precise. Perhaps many users do not know that they can change the mouse/touchpad settings in Windows?? The touchpad is very responsive and tracks my movements precisely. No issues whatsoever.
The keys “feel” great when typing and it is comfortable. This is a multimedia keyboard so comfort is not top priority but it does the job well enough.
The multimedia keys on top and on the side are perfect. I can quickly control the volume, mute, play, rewind, etc. my movie/video and then at then end quickly put my HTPC to sleep all without touching an additional remote control. All the keys are extremely resonpsive.
I cannot comment to well on distance. I sit (or sometimes stand) roughly 10-15 feet from my HTPC and everything has worked perfectly without lag or a disconnect. I don’t have the need to take the keyboard beyond that distance so I have not tested it.
The construction is one ofthe best features. It feel extremely durable. I have dropped this many times being that it is a couch surfing keyboard and each time there has been no damage (not even scratches). Plus I have spilled water (and other beverages) on the keyboard by accident (it is lying on the coffee table next to glasses). The keyboard is water/liquid resistant. A simple wipe off and the keyboard is still working.
I would highly recommend this keyboard and would purchase it again without hesitation if I needed to, fortunately I think this will last many years to come!!!
