Let me put it this way - gaming on a big screen TV through a home theatre setup ROCKS. You have not really played MechWarriors: Mercanaries, MotoRacer and Tomb Raider 2 until you've played on a big screen through a home theatre setup.
Ok, you lose on the resolution - some of the small text can be quite difficult to read; but you get a much more "immersive" gaming experience from the big screen.
It is not really a typists keyboard and the keys feel a bit rubbery; but it is fine for casual use. Let's be honest here, nobody is going to use it to write the next "War and Peace" in their living room using the TV as a monitor.
