What advantages does this keyboard have?
This compact keyboard and touchpad is great for controlling your Smart TV or writing an email on your phone. The compact 120mm x 99mm x 9mm controller can replace the use of a keyboard and mouse. When it’s off there are no markings on the sleek black and chrome unit. When on, the keys are heighted by a blue light and the touch sensitivity converts your presses to writing with no keys to wear out or make a noise. The keyboard/touchpad is powered by an internal rechargeable battery and comes with a USB charging cable. Save power and avoid accidental inputs with an on/off switch and sleep button.

How do I use the touchpad?
With the keyboard/touchpad you can switch between modes by swiping the dotted line. The touchpad can replace the use of a mouse. Move the cursor around by dragging your finger, tap to click, use multiple figure gesture for more options including zooming and double click without raising your finger on the second click to drag. The keyboard uses a QWERTY letter set up with alternate functions for some keys to get in as many keys as possible.

What is this compatible with?
The keyboard/touchpad is compatible with a great range of devices including Windows, Mac and Android tablets and smartphones, as well as some Smart TVs. Compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, this is a great keyboard for anyone with multiple devices. Get a reliable connection with 2.4GHz wireless which lets you use the keyboard up to 10m from the receiver.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Almost Good but serious flaw It seems well made, its very neat and for many purposes it works well swipe switches between mouse and keyboard mode and its all pretty logical. However it seems to incapable of one of the most basic mouse moves of all - to click hold down and drag. It just won't do it: want to move a window? You can't. Drag something to the trash? You can't. It's a quite unbelievable that such a serious omission was allowed to happen. I m very happy to be corrected and will modify this review, maybe someone will find a software workaround but I think it will have to go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's just seamless :) I bought this to use on a mac mini media centre. It's excellent! Both the 'mouse' and keyboard functions work excellently plus the pinch zoom is an extra bonus. Small enough to hold in one hand and operate with the other, or just use it on your lap. It uses radio frequency, so no need for line of sight. Switching it on wakes the mac from sleep mode. The battery lasts at least a week with evening use, maybe more I just charge it weekly. It charges via micro USB just like most mobiles, so I can use my phone charger too. I'm going to buy another one for my phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! I called into the local store to get a combo wireless keyboard and touchpad suitable for my new android media center, saw this and thought it would be much better than a bulky keyboard. I'm rocking the android interface now with this, I don't even think I'll be using the limited input remote now. One thing that has caught me out, I've always had physical buttons with touchpads before this and it took a while to figure out how to click and drag. I think the instructions could do with more info on doing simple things like this without buttons. Overall I think it's a nice bit of kit for the price and perfect for my use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from it works ok just charged up fine on first try but having problems with the second charge battery not having it. The keyboard is brighter one side than the other and the blue back-light needs to be brighter found no brightness setting on instructions found trying to right click under mouse function is hit and miss. Great idea and nicely put together but much room for improvement, suspect it will have to go back to the shop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced and flawed Bought this recently and was foolish enough to not keep hold the receipt, wish I had. The mouse functionality seems to work well enough, the keyboard isn't as responsive as I'd expect given the price and doesn't seem to be capable of recognising multi-touch on the keyboard (using ctrl, shift or alt funtions for example)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor range Looks the part and works well, if your close to it lol. I've got it connected behind the TV, but it doesn't work until the receiver is sticking out above the TV, stutters after your 4 feet away, even in line of sight, maybe I've just got a dodgy one

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Nice piece of kit. Works well. To drag an item, double-tap but don't lift your finger after the second tap. Drag the item where you want it, then lift your finger to drop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Recognised by Windows 8.1 Laptop Bought today but no matter what I do I can`t get my Toshiba laptop to recognise it. Need a full refund on a poor quality device.

Just purchased one, and I went to charge for 2 hrs, but the charge light went out after about a minute of connecting. Is this usual?

Asked by: IDtenT
Regrettably this does sound like a potential fault, and as such I would suggest contacting our Customer Care Team who can advise on the options available to you if the item remains within our standard 12 month warranty period. If your item is now outside the warranty period please do still contact the Customer Care Team as they may have alternative options available to you. Please contact customer care by telephone on 0333 400 9500 – Option 2, or email customercare@maplin.co.uk It will help to speed up the returns process if you have your receipt details / proof of purchase and postal address available at the time of contact.
