    I purchased one of these and it's awful: https://www.amazon.com/Rii-FMKBTL1-IV1-Wireless-Bluetooth-Backlight/dp/B01GCPVZDW

    I didn't really realize how small it would be, especially the touchpad which is unusable. Not only is the pad tiny, but it's annoyingly inset and the resolution/accuracy is atrocious. You have to press right in the middle of the space bar too.

    Anyone bought something like this that's actually usable?

    I third it. I have both Logitechs, the K400+ (touchpad) and the K380 (no touchpad)

    I use the Rii and the K400 regularly and love them both. The Rii I use on an NVidia Shield Pro in the bedroom, while the K400 is on the HTPC in the living room. To me they are perfect for what they are doing, the Rii small form factor for watching videos or whatnot in bedroom, and the K400 for the HTPC with some surfing and light gaming.
