    The flash drive has a blue light that is annoying for my peripheral vision and I don't think the keyboard will operate with out it, but "why" does it have to keep flashing? Am I doing it wrong. I've called HP and I got a "foreign" person on the line, who had no clue about this. She kept asking me the serial and product#'s and I ended up hanging up, it just took too long, and she never did find it.

    • A. the blue light drives me crazy too, nothing a little electrical tape won't fix. just wrap it around the dongle, wont effect the range or function. Just eliminates the light.

    • A. Its not a flash drive. It is the wireless transmitter/receiver that communicates with the keyboard. It flashes to confirm that it is working. If it bothers you, you can either plug it into a USB port on the rear of your PC, or you can get some sort of sticker or tape to cover it. Black vinyl electrical tape would work well.

    • A. It flashes because its pretty. Anytime you type it flashes. You can solve this problem by putting it in the back of your computer. That way you don't see it.

    • A. That's actually a "feature" of the keyboard. It flashes whenever you press a key on the keyboard, which is intentional. I'm not quite sure why they added the feature (as there is only limited use for it), but as far as I know, the only way to disable it would be to take off the plastic cover on the dongle (which I haven't tried) and break/remove the LED light in there.

    • A. I can answer my own question. I see that I have a port in the rear of the tower, and so its out of sight, and I no longer see the blue light.

    I bought this keyboard because I disliked the stock keyboard HP sent with my desktop, and I wanted to lose the wire. I am completely satisfied with the decision. The keys are crisp and provide good feel. The keyboard itself is a little smaller than the original but feels exactly like a fullsize. I installed the usb on the back of my computer so I don't see the blinking light that bothers some users. One note: there are no lights on the keyboard to indicate when Num Lock or Caps Lock are engaged, but you can have icons in your notification tray that advise you of their status. This is a good product at a good value.

    Great keyboard with a "fatal flaw" for some. Design: 5 stars. Ease of use: 5 stars. Blue light on dongle, hello Mr. Tape. I like the feel, the look, just a really great keyboard... but (you knew that was coming). I bought just the keyboard, since I needed a mouse with more features then the one HP bundled with it. So I bought the Logitech wireless mouse Lx8. Installed the mouse first, and it worked great. Then I installed the HP Keyboard, hello? Is this the path to conflict purgatory? The mouse worked eratically, and just refused to work. Yeah, after much trouble shooting (switching keyboards & mice, fresh batteries, moving dongles far apart, invoking the gods of PC's). Came to the conclusion that the frequencies from both the keyboard and mouse were in conflict. The HP frequency (though the same 2.4 ghz) was stronger and messing with the Logitech frequency. HP & Logitech have been no help. Probably will need to buy a HP mouse, or return keyboard and get a logitch keyboard.

    The HP Wireless Elite Keyboard works great! I use it with my Playstation 3 for editing and texting. The keyboard is very THIN (like the keyboard of a laptop). When I use the HP Wireless keyboard, it's a min distance from the PS3 of 15 feet. Plus, my PS3 is in a hidden cabinet with a wooden door between the PS3 and the keyboard. I am very satisfied with it...

    I was looking for a wireless USB keyboard that would replace my older, wired USB keyboard that I used for chat on my PS3. I sit 10-12 feet away from the PS3 and this keyboard works great. Just plug in the USB dongle into the USB port on the PS3, and it's ready to go. No need to worry about drivers with the PS3.

    I bought this keyboard because I just upgraded my video card so I could use to different monitors with different applications simultaneously. As a result, I am constantly moving my keyboard back and forth from one side of the L shaped desk to the other. I've got the usb keyboard-receiver plugged into a hub about six feet from where I normally use the keyboard. There are no problems with signal reception whatsoever. Also, the low profile of the keys is similar to what you find on many laptop and netbook PC's. Since I am not a big fan of laptop keyboards I was skeptical. But the low profile keys are quiet and have a solid, durable feel. The only thing that took some getting used to was the lack of a number lock and caps lock light. But I am very happy with the performance, price, and ease of setup with this product. It works perfectly.

    First, if you already have a wireless mouse, and you just want to add a keyboard, do not buy. It did nothing but interfere with my wireless mouse. I ended up having to return it to get the same keyboard with the wireless mouse. Outside of that, no issues.

    Love the feel of this keyboard. It's much like the Mac keyboard. HOWEVER, the receiver on mine is funky...it randomly takes 3-4 minute timeouts. Started out once in awhile, now it's 5-8 times a day. HP Service? What a nightmare. ONE HOUR on the phone for a warranty replacement. On hold for 8-10-12 minutes at a time. Two days later they're still emailing me, processing this, evaluating that....it will be weeks before this thing is replaced. If ever. If it weren't for a quirky problem with the receiver and the HIDEOUS "support," I'd give it 5 stars. I returned the wireless elite keyboard/mouse combo, though...noisiest mouse click EVER.

    First off, I was skeptical in replacing my default factory keyboard that came with my newly purchased HP desktop, but I wanted a keyboard that was easier to clean. Hence, I figured I'd purchased a HP keyboard instead some other brands so that I wouldn't have to deal with their installation CDs. Anyhow, it came down to a few select choices and I decided upon the HP Wireless Elite Keyboard based on (1) wireless. (2) slim, (3) sleek & black, (4) easy to clean, and (5) price. The wireless was a given, however, I was amazingly surprised at just how slim it really was when it arrived. In addition, it does seem to have a quite a stury build to it - not the usual cheap plastic feeling, etc. Also, it comes in a nice sleek black color. The keys feel very responsive (tactile). The only drawback I found to it was that there is no indicator anywhere on the keyboard to indicate whether or not caps or num lock is on which can be frustrating at times. However, this minor issue diminishes once you get accustomed to the keyboard and its set-up, etc. Overall, I highly recommend it!!!

    I have been using this keyboard for over a year now and have grown to love it. The keys have a very short travel which may take some getting used to, but they have a comfortable feedback which makes typing effortless. It is solidly built and heavier than it looks, considering how thin it is. Extra features include controls for a media player, monitor brightness, and volume. This may seem somewhat limited, but I have no need for calculator, email or browser hot keys as they're already easily accessed via mouse. Surprisingly, despite regular and near daily use, it is still running on the original set of batteries. My only complaint is that the USB dongle has a completely unnecessary blue LED that flashes every time you make a keystroke. I would have preferred no light at all, or at least a small light that remains solid as an indicator the dongle has power. As is, it can be very distracting if your computer isn't hidden inside or under a desk. In my case, the issue was resolved with a small piece of black electrical tape. That said, I heartily recommend this keyboard.
