I ended up getting one despite the odd keyboard layout because it's the best keyboard + touchpad combination I've found in terms of touchpad functionality. It supports Windows 8 edge swipes and several two-finger gestures, but there are two funny things about the touchpad:
1) Tap and drag works a bit funny. With a Synaptics laptop touchpad, the drag starts from where your second tap begins. With the K400 touchpad, the drag starts a little bit further out. So you need to start your tap and drag motion a bit off from where you really want to start. For example, if I wanted to move something to the left using tap and drag, I need to start the tap and drag motion a few pixels to the right of the object.
2) Two finger tap for right-click works only about half the time. It's not like independent coin flips either. If it doesn't work, repeatedly doing the two finger tap won't do anything. You need to move the cursor a little bit using one finger then try to repeat the two finger tap.
With that being said, it is still the best keyboard + touchpad combo that I've found. Even with the SetPoint software bug, I would still recommend it because it's better than anything else out there, especially at the $30 price point. It's a sad state of competition really.
