    not to waste time with cheaper alternatives.

    what about k400

    •  

      There is a comparison on the Amazon product page of the features, but deal breaker for me was no backlight and not rechargeable (requires 2AA batteries).

      I think the K400 also requires a Unifying receiver (doesn't support Bluetooth), not sure if this is included or not.

    the type feeling is terrible. even microsoft all in one is better

    •  

      I love the feel on mine. I also have the Microsoft one in a different room and that is way worse.

    •  

      Microsoft one with the touchpad buttons as part of the touchpad is absolute nightmare to use.

    I've got this keyboard (bought from the Good Guys three years ago for $99). It's the only multimedia/living room keyboard I've owned.

    The backlight is a great feature and the battery life is surprisingly long, but I do have a few criticisms:

    There is only one 'Fn' key, which is located at the bottom left (but I guess this is a problem for a lot of keyboards anyway).

    There is no LED indicator for caps-lock.

    The bottom of the keyboard is smooth and slips around on your lap or the sofa. This is easy enough to resolve though, by sticking something non-slip on the bottom of the keyboard.

      Thanks for sharing your experience, there's definitely a few painful niggles there that I wasn't aware of.

      I won't be relying on the keyboard for heavy use, most of the time I will be using a controller, and if I were to play something more keyboard/mouse intensive I would get a proper wireless gaming setup.

      I noticed the Amazon description says 'V.2', no idea what this means… can you see any differences between it and yours?

      Not sure if you realise that the Fn key is to activate the function keys along the top?

      These are a good keyboard in my experience anyway

    I have a few of these I bought for the kids to use with their school laptops when at home. In true Ozb style I bought them used off eBay for about $30 each with no dongles (I needed to use them on BT anyway so meh).

    One of them had a faulty key right away. I had to take it apart and kind of bend a piece of plastic backing to get that key to work properly (after getting a full refund from the seller of course).

    Other than that they seem well made and easy to use and decent quality. I have other lounge style keyboards, incl the k400, and this is much nicer quality feeling that that.

    I have one of these that I bought a few years ago to use with the Nvidia Shield. Great HTPC keyboards.

    Does anyone know what's new in "v2"?

      V2 includes Bluetooth, original version works with the dongle only.

    I got 2 of these on clearance at Dick Smith when they were closing down for $29 each, awesome keyboards
