Hey guys, just got my Zino HD and I need a keyboard with a trackpad included..

I've seen this one: h**p://www.adesso.com/index.php/en/whats-new/new-arrivals/126-wkb-4000bb

It is with bluetooth and I heard it's better than IR.

But, it has no backlight and I heard the quality of adesso gives a cheap-feel?

Do u guys know how is the response time on bluetooth of the trackpad and keyboard? Also, any better keyboard with integrated trackpad and backlight?

Thanks!

I have one of these for my HTPC in the computer room, and it works awesome. (http://www.xoxide.com/moneual-wireless-keyboard.html) Hope this helps.

Dang it, tried to buy it but they are out of stock and I can't find anyone else who has it available for purchase.

Looks like a good one to me.

No backlight, but I have this one and I think it works great, even with the RF receiver.

Apple Macbook or Macbook Pro has the best keyboard with trackpad. Though when I load Windows on it the trackpad seems to not work as well.

Still I would take an Apple wireless backlit keyboard with multi-touch trackpad over most anything out there...if it existed.

I'm another user of the Moneual MK700 keyboard for my HTPC for 3 years now. I got mine from www.quietpcusa.com.

It has great range, and is easy on batteries. I couldn't find a way to reprogram the function keys at the top though. Small gripe.

I have a logitech diNovo mini. Built-in trackpad that doubles as directional arrows with the flip of a switch; backlight in two colors to indicate different functions; bluetooth; super-small (not for serious typing jobs); good software support from logitech as usual.

Highest recommendation, but it ain't cheap.

Here is another link for the Moneual Lab keyboardhttp://(www.monshopper.com/shop/mk700-p-37-c-25_28.html) It cost a little more,but I think it's still worth the price. I would like to get another for the lining room.

Cool thanks. Just bought it. $50 all in with shipping, still cheaper than most keyboard options around this size.

Glad it worked for you. I really like mine. It has a nice solid feel to it, and the keys, trackball all work really well. The one minor anoyance is the keyboard goes to sleep rather quickly. All you need to do to wake it up is a quick click down on the trackball. It has a on/off switch on the top edge of the keyboard.I use it on a Win 7 64bit system. Hope it works well for you.

Thanks for the heads up on this moneual keyboard. Found a used one on Ebay and for $25 bucks its a steal. My htpc is in a bedroom 15' away from my plasma tv and this beats walking to/fro accessing the pc to open folders/files to play my ripped movies on the hdd. The trackball feels pretty good and the keys ain't that bad(I'll hardy need to use the keypad though). If only it was back lit but since I'll only use the trackball and left/right mouse buttons it shouldn't matter much.

I have this as well and it is top of the line. I'm not aware of anything that can match it and it almost qualifies as a work of art. However your going to pay over $100 for it like IAM4UK mentioned, not cheap.

no trackpad and not backlit, but this one is on sale today and has a trackball, two buttons, and scroll wheel:
IOGEAR Wireless Multimedia Keyboard for HTPC w/ Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel $38

I ordered one tonight to replace my little Lenovo handheld that drives me nuts...

This is an old thread but still relevant.

Just thought I would give the thumbs up to the SMK-Link Wireless Ultra-Mini Touchpad Keyboard. http://www.smklink.com/index.php?id=ODA3

I picked it up from Amazon. It works pretty well with a HTPC. Well it got a tick in the WAF box anyway...

Pictures make it look bigger than it is. It fits in your palm of your hand and would be harder to type if you hand big large thumbs.
