Anyone know what the range on this is?
I have a K400 plus and it gets a bit jittery when I try to use it from where my sofa is.

edit: Screw it, gonna buy one and try it out. Good deal!

This seems very expensive considering you can get the K400r (or whatever the latest model is) for like £15-£20.

As far as I can tell they both use the same receiver. I use a short usb extension with my k400r to better place my reciever/dongle from my media pc.
As above, use a usb extension so it has clear sight of the keyboard.

It's a Bluetooth / wireless keyboard, not Infrared (needs clear sight like older TV remotes) so uses radio waves, not light waves, so doesn't need line of sight, as long as its within the stated range & doesn't have signal interference.
Doesn't hurt to use an extention lead if it helps get a stronger & more reliable signal though.

These devices have quoted distances of 10-15m with clear line of sight. If you put it behind the TV, inside the cupboard, near anything metal it drops to 3-5m. It's why radio and TV transmitters sit atop massive masts... Is what I meant.

All fair points. Thanks for the clarification.
