    Ergonomic Joystick Keyboard is a delight for PC Gamers everywhere.
    No it's not.

    Actually, i don't trust this ad:
    1) They dont specify the type of wireless connection (RF, IR, bluetooth). I see a receiver, so I'm guessing IR, but it would be nice to know for certain.
    2) The seller listed it under Logitech on Ebay, but it's obviously not a Logitech product.
    3) mini-keyboards like this (and the one that I have) are NOT ergonomic whatsoever.

    The seller has good feedback and it's not a bad price.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    This is an RF keyboard based on freq specification. The ~15' range would be adequate for a car. At the price, it would be worth trying out.

    Good question.
    5 meters is what I read which is 16' 4.79999999999998"
    That conflicts with their stated 9.8'
    - Effective distance : 5 m/9.8'
    I wonder where they learned math. Either way it would be enough for my car.

    BTC has another similar black version of the keyboard. I have it and i really think its convenient. It has handles which makes it look like it was acutally made to be used in the car. The integrated mouse is very conveniently placed. Only thing i dont like is the right click button location.

    Yeah I realised that after I posted that but decided not to correct myself. Maybe its 5m if your anywhere but the USA and 9.8' in the USA the keyboard must have a gps system built in to determine where it is and adjusts its range accordingly.

    if my memory serves me, that keyboard could hardly be considered "mini".. right?
