That's impressive. It also has a "Low Battery" indicator light. Still loving this keyboard!

Last week we had someone stop by with their 5 year old.
The kid picked up the keyboard and started buzzing around XBMC like he was born to it.
Always amazed at how fast the little ones pick this stuff up.

Ultimately,..I think this speaks volumes to the intuitiveness of XBMC and also to the ease of use of this particular keyboard.

In the UK that keyboard on Amazon is equivalent to $83 at today's exchange rate.

I have this KB now too and I love it. To me it is the best one on the market right now and if it only had a backlight it would be perfect.

Hey David

You can get it here much cheaper £35 + delivery

[EDIT] Forget that, shipping is £10!

Nice to see that others also have good things to say about it,...my original keyboard is still going strong!
