i also jumped on that amazon batch. i am not sure if i got the R or not. I did not open the shipping box yet.
So no more Volume controls now? that sux if they replaced them with something else.
the half-width shift key is not only your problem. it's everyone else's problem. we are all using both left and right shift keys.
so is it really "an upgrade" version or not?
We do have vol control just that position is changed..
Also all key size etc remains the same,just that 400r has layout different..
Also if i remember i did check boxes of both 400 and 400r and saw only latter one had win 8 logo somewhere on side of box.
Local OD only had 2 and they're the old version.
Its almost the same in layout and build quality as the google TV keyboard that Logitech was selling, except it has actual important keys like alt, F keys, and a right mouse button. Still got the left click on upper left corner button so that's good.
Well, replaced my 15 year old IR keyboard/mouse, so I don't have to sit in front of the TV to control it now.
I picked this keyboard up on black friday, and overall I really like it's portability with my HTPC. The on/off switch is invaluable with small kids in the house. It's got a couple issues that people should probably know about going into this purchase though -
1. The right shift key is half-width to allow space for the arrow keys. This is a major PITA for me as a touch typist. I really have to make a deliberate effort to extend my pinky WAY over to the right to hit the key.
2. The trackpad seems to be "sticky". I'm using Win7, so this may not be the case in other OSes, but when I move cursor to somewhere else on the screen, the pad occasionally registers the initial touch of the swipe as a click, and starts dragging what the cursor is directly above on the screen. This tends to move or copy files or drag icons around the screen when I don't want it to. It happens often enough to be a pretty major nuisance too. I'm hoping I can somehow deal with this in software or something. Anyone else experience this?
Overall this is a nice keyboard though.
There's a way to turn off the tap-to-click and only let the hardware button click.
