Media centre controller? Work presentations? ...Keysonic! AR ...
23 June 2011
Summary: ))--Reason for purchase--(( I have a laptop sat under my TV which i use as a media center. Basically i have my HD TV plugged into the HDMI socket on my laptop and use my TV as a giant monitor and what movies and stream TV over the internet. I needed an all in one wireless keyboard and mouse so i could communicate with the laptop from my sofa. The Keysonic was an excellent purchase at a very affordable price.
Pros: Cheap, durable and works!
Cons: number lock is on by default, no media player shortcut keys
Summary: This really is a fantastic little peiece of kit. Over the last year it has made my life(whilst using the computer at least ) so much easier and more comfortable. I am writing this very review from the comfort of my own bed across the room from my PC. All of the main features you could want from a keyboard are right here and work fantasticly well.
Pros: Good range, Simple layout, Really good quality
Cons: Lacking some more advanced features such as music and browser buttons
Summary: I have been using this keyboard for about a year now and have found that it has performed very well. The keyboard itself looks like a laptop keyboard without the screen. I have my home computer hooked up to my television and the wireless functionality of this keyboard means that I can browse the internet from the comfort of my sofa. Its also a useful remote control when watching or using media online.
Summary: I have purchased this a few times for a number of media centre systems I have built for people. I also have one for my media centre, which I use alongside the Microsoft remote. This makes general surfing and package exploring a much more comfortable and efficient experience than attempting to use a keyboard and mouse where a suitable surface me not be available.
Excerpt: "It's a bit creaky and cheaply built but the range is excellent as it battery life. There aren't many keyboards with a built in mouse pad so you don't need a mouse as well for armchair surfing and emails. The Mouse buttons have a horrible click to them but the keys are pretty good. Very small keyboard so great for storage. Uses 4 AAA batteries. The USB dongle is a little on the large side so rear mount is preferrable unless you have health insurance. ...
Pros: Small and light, touchpad, great range, good keys
Cons: Numpad operation fiddly, tacky mouse buttons and a little flimsy for some
Summary: A really good keyboard. It is a stylish compact elegently designed piece f technology. it has a laptop style touchpad, with the scroll function, ideal for browsing text docments and internet pages with ease. The keyboard set up is great. Every button in a full sized keyboard is on there, but this keboard is a third shorter. The wireless ability is great.
Excerpt: "After using this product for the best part of a year, i think it is only right to write a review. There are no major problems with this product, yet it does not stand out as one of the best in the market. It has a great range of use, being able to be used upto ten metres away from the sensor. As for spywade's problem above, i experinced this, but by simply holding down the ''FN'' button and pressing num lock, you can turn this off, and switch to letter ...
Pros: Sleek, stylish, easy to use
Cons: scrool part of touch pad a little too sensitive
