    remote keyboard for media centre?

    didn't know where to put this, im after a remote keyboard for my media centre, ive seen something on buyer which is like a laptop minus the screen, the only downside is the keys aren't backlit, does anyone know of one or what do people use? The buyer link is KeySonic 2.4Ghz Wireless Keyboard with Integrated.. | Ebuyer.com

    Cheers

    I use a Logitech diNovo Mini for mine. It's not a full keyboard replacement (doesn't have some keys, including F-keys) but it works very nicely both for Media Center and also walkthrough demos on a projector when you need more than a PowerPoint clicker.

    Myself I would get a Bluetooth one. I have used to standard wireless ones with a media pc and the range isn't good enough for me. The Bluetooth ones tend to be more reliable.

    A mates got one of these. Had it for a few years now and its still going strong. Range is fine, his living room is fairly large with the kitchen behind, no range issues even in the kitchen. Batteries last forever. For these reasons, personally, Id go for this over bluetooth.

    At least the apple bluetooth keyboards are - am sure this will go down well, like a tonne of bricks at least on this forum with anti apple lol

    Keysonic KB's are the only one I've ever used for my media center PC's. They're not the cheapest though. As they say, you get what you pay for.
