I use on my PS3 and home theater PC and can't believe how stinking easy this was to set up. It works on a bunch of platforms and is just cool, small and easy to use. One device for two systems! The range is great, i'm at 30 ft minimum. Touchpad is a nice touch also. If you have either of those systems i would highly recommend...

Small, yet effective

by JR on 6/30/2011

The keyboard is a perfect size, not too big, yet not too small where bigger hands will have an issue typing. The range is not the greatest, around 10 feet, but the trackpad makes up for it. The included bluetooth adapter is very convenient as well. Read More

VisionTek CandyBoard 900335 Bluetooth Keyboard Review:

Wireless Bluetooth mini-keyboard delivers big performance in a small package

My entertainment room doesn't have a lot of table space, so I try to limit the number of remote controls and media center keyboards used to managed the home theater. My Sony PlayStation 3 has a remote for when I play Blu-ray discs, and the HTPC uses a media center keyboard. While each of these peripherals serves its own purpose, I've always thought it would be nice to have something that combined them into one small device. As if someone knew exactly what I wanted, the VisionTek CandyBoard 900335 Bluetooth mini keyboard materialized into what might possibly be the perfect solution. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests this Bluetooth mini-keyboard for range and performance on both PC and PS3 systems.

My initial interest in the VisionTek CandyBoard came from its petite size, and its ability to transmit wirelessly over the Bluetooth network. Knowing that my Sony PlayStation 3 had its own built-in BT receiver, I wasn't expecting to use the included USB button receiver. Then it occurred to me that I could replace the large wireless media center keyboard on my nearby Home Theater PC (HTPC), and use the Bluetooth receiver there. It turned out to be the perfect solution for my needs: one device to control two (or more) platforms.
