Lightweight sleek black affordable wireless keyboard
3 weeks ago
Summary: It normally costs 30$ for a bluetooth keyboard in the store. and around 20$ online. This one costs me 13$ (no tax) and its very cute, small, lightweight, black color, professional looking, and will fit my laptopbag. I use a laptop elevator and hence a wireless keyboard & mouse r mandatory. The keyboard is super thin, there is a nice On/OFF button on the back as well as a connect button. It was a breeze to connect this to my XP laptop after I connected the USB dongle in.
Summary: I'd been looking for an external keyboard with a trackpad to hook up to my Macbook Air, and was really excited when I discovered this. However, I had to return it TWICE due to problems. The first time, the mouse kept jumping around the screen, and the second, one of the keys broke off within three minutes of using the product. I'm very disappointed because I really prefer a trackpad to a mouse, but sadly, this is just too poorly made to be a viable product.
Summary: I have this keyboard for over a year. My biggest complaint is that it doesn't stay connected. It often loses connection and i have to reconnect and type in the code on the screen. My other bluetooth device that I use with the my mac (Apple Magic Trackpad) always stays connected.
Summary: My biggest complaint about this product is Adesso's decision to reduce the number of batteries from 4, as in its PC version that comes with a separate USB dongle receiver, to 2 in this keyboard. It is just not enough juice. After about 30-45 minutes of continuous use, the keyboard becomes sluggish and the cursor's movements erratic. A good keyboard otherwise: very nice keys, light and sturdy. Need to go back to four batteries, better yet, make it four AA batteries.
Summary: This keyboard is a relic. It does not work with Mac OS 10.7 (Lion). This rather important information does not appear on Amazon's website, so everyone who wants a Mac trackpad keyboard gets to waste their time discovering this and mailing the item back - a rather thorough waste of time and money.
Summary: This is the only Mac-specific keyboard with a touchpad in front. I hate constantly switching between keyboard and mouse, so this is the only keyboard for me. Pluses: Only Mac keyboard with a touchpad. This is much easier to type on than Apple's tiny aluminum keyboard. You can find the keys, and you can feel them respond. Wireless (you can indeed use rechargeable batteries; I use Ni-Mn ones with no problem). Minuses: The keys are too weak.
Summary: Would be the perfect home theater keyboard but has a very annoying lag when moving the cursor. It takes some getting used to and sometimes temporarily loses bluetooth connection. Otherwise great product for Mac users.
