Ah man, had this been the backlit one I'd give an unreserved "go in on this". Using the newer model as my HTPC remote and like it quite a bit, but the lack of backlighting makes it significantly less practical for media playing in a dark room.
Logician1313 said: FYI this is the older non-backlit model. Thanks for catching that, I forgot to put that in. The Camelcamelcamel and the Google Products are based on the backlit, I just missed putting it with the deal. Oops.
We have the non-backlit version and love it. We always have some light in the room where we primarily use this device to control the media center PC. Beats fumbling a clunky wireless keyboard and mouse while sitting on the couch.
I tried to order one. I am stuck in "order" loop. Meaning I get to the final "order" button. I clicked it, I got auth request into my CC. Then I am looped back to "order" button page. I clicked it again, my CC got hit with another auth request.
I contacted CSR, they said if there is no confirmation email, they have no record (which I can understand), therefore they cannot help me. They didn't offer to order it for me while they have me online with them. I guess they didn't want my $$$.
BTW, no firewall, no blocker, etc. I am on Linux I just installed today, so super clean.
This keyboard was unusable with my middle-age eyesight and no backlight. I settled on a Logitech K400 keyboard with touchpad, and use that exclusively. It also works great with a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black.
The Hausbell Mini H7 at Amazon looks like an interesting alternative, with touchpad, for $16 and prime eligible, 4-star with 448 reviews.
