Rated 3 out of 5 by 3
Rated 3 out of 5 by Gjgug I bought this just to use with my LG smart TV. Not all functions work with my TV such you cannot copy and paste. Also you have to push the keys down hard. I have no problem with the mouse as some reviews were negative on the mouse. For me it works Ok.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeep67 Worked Great For Over A Year!
I use this to control my laptop through my TV, so it is basically a TV remote for the most part. I don't have cable, so I use Netflix through my Blu Ray and things like NFL Rewind on the laptop. I do scroll the web and check emails, but not as much as I do with my PC. This keyboard has worked great for over a year now. Two of the key tops just came off, but I can be a bit rough with it. I can still push the exposed rubber buttons, but I'm going to replace it with the same model. Some people complain about the track ball mouse, but I find it a great feature and I've never had a problem with it. It is a little loose but when you get used to applying a little pressure, it works fine. It's convenient to control that with the right thumb and the mouse buttons with the left. It's big enough to type like a full size, but it is a bit shorter. It's huge for a TV controller, but I can't control my laptop with a TV remote so it's worked fine for me. I take it with me when I take my laptop anywhere because I like it better than my laptop's keyboard.
As for range, I'd say my laptop is 10 ft away, maybe a little more. When I'm in bed I can pull my knees up and rest it on my legs and it still gets the signal even though it's slanted in a more upright direction and with my legs in the way. The receiver device is smaller than a thumb drive and doesn't get in the way. It has on/off switch, but I usually forget to turn it off and it has long battery life.
I'm giving this unit high marks because it has done what it said it would and anything in this price range that lasts a year or more (maybe two) and is used on a near daily basis and takes the kind of beating I give it deserves a good review. I can't count how many keyboards I have been through for one reason or another and the keys popping off of this after so long is to be expected at some point. I've thrown it across the bed and can't remember how many times I've rolled over on it or let it slip off the bed. For those reasons, I'm getting another one exactly like it.

Wireless Keyboard range awful . You must have the keyboard practically against the eye for it to work
