I've got the same keyboard, works well.  I picked mine up at ergogeek:


There are a few things that I'm not crazy about:

The receiver is a small box that sits at the end of a USB cable

The keyboard is closer to a laptop layout than a typical 101 key in 
layout and feel, which often throws me off when working on the machine 

It's somewhat tricky to do any precision 'mousing' with the stick 
(machine maintenance, too lazy to go to another machine and ssh in for a 
trivial tweak).

Otherwise, I like it a lot.  Even works fine through a wall, battery 
life seems to be pretty good as well.

I'm currently using xhkeys for mine.
