      The product works well over specified distance.
      The PREVIOUS model from IOGEAR, was FAR superior to this model. The keyboard is too small, you tend to enter the wrong keys. The trackball is Horrible.
      The trackball/mouse buttons are located too far from the trackball, the buttons on the bottom left are awkward to use when using the trackball for positioning. And the buttons on the top edge on either side of the keyboard almost always end up pressing other unwanted keys when used due to their location. Close to a lot other keys.
      The trackball itself doesn't work most of the time. If you press down on the trackball it doesn't make contact and nothing happens. You have to have a VERY LIGHT touch for it to work.
      The Older slightly larger model was 100 times better. The engineer that designed this one, should be out looking for another job, selling fruit or something their qualified for!

        Just what I was looking for. Small enough to look natural in the living room. And just large enough for touch typing.

          I use it to navigate the screen of my 32" LG Smart TV for internet browsing. It saves me a lot of time and frustration by being able to type on a keyboard rather than point and click on the on-screen keyboard.The track ball moves slowly and with some difficulty in the up direction, but well otherwise. There is no power switch but turns on if any key is touched and off if not touched for 30 minutes - not great for battery life.

          I purchased this keyboard mainly because it had a built in trackball. The keyboard is perfectly sized to us handheld while I'm surfing my Samsung Smart TV. Previously, I was using a wireless keyboard/mouse combination and the mouse kept getting misplaced. This works out perfectly for me.

                      All in all, it is a good value. It works and is convenient for home theater PC setup. It could be a couple inches bigger and the trackball could be a little more smooth. Also, seems to default to numlock on when it starts up.

                          This used with a smart HDTV to avoid the onscreen virtual keyboard. The built-in trackball eliminates the need for a mouse in your lap.

                          Only downfall is I can't find a key that will function as the 'HOME' and 'BACK' keys from the LG remote.

                          Goes to sleep, which saves batteries and prevents unwanted input when watching videos.

                            Comments about IOGEAR 2.4GHz Wireless Compact Keyboard with Optical Trackball and Scroll Wheel:

                            Used as a coffee table keyboard. I can use it one-handed, with a finger on the ball so my thumb can reach the Left button or Enter key. It is the only wireless product I can find that does this. It has the edge keys so you can hold it with two hands if you wish. Track ball works well in spite of its small diameter, except it is a bit slippery. You have to click L or R to wake it up.

                              It's a nice keyboard, easy to type on. The scroll wheel is a weak point because it didn't move very smoothly. Worse, the keyboard is not Mac compatible -- my Mac Mini always told me it couldn't recognize the keyboard when it booted up. And the scroll wheel stopped working when the Mac was awakened after sleeping.

                                Takes a bit to get used to the small buttons and the tracking ball isn't very smooth but overall it does the trick!
