Very handy, though a bit expensive
6 September, 2013
I ordered this keyboard to use with my computer rather than with an entertainment system.
The wireless keyboard is quite a handy accessory that provides a good deal of freedom from being tethered to a desk. This is particularly useful in places where space is a constraint and where setting up an ergonomically friendly computer desk is not possible. With this keyboard, one doesn't need to have the keyboard tray at a certain height or a chair with provides flexibility in terms of height adjustment for arms. Even when using a desk, this keyboard is better since the user doesn't need to move her hands between the keyboard and the mouse and I have found this ergonomically convenient as well.
I was expecting it to be lighter, but still its weight is decent - not light, but not heavy either.
The keyboard worked out of the box on Windows, Linux and Mac. No additional setup needed. Just need to press the Ctrl key to bring it out of sleep.
Keys are soft, have a good bounce and work well in general. Time will only tell how long this will last.
The response lags a little bit, but only a little bit, hence the 4 stars. Multi-touch works just fine.
I have not tried this, but I imagine multiple keyboards cannot be used in close proximity due to the range and lack of wireless channels.
I also imagine this wireless interface is not secure and hence someone could snoop. May be important for those for whom that is important.
I expected an accessory like this to be in the Rs 1000-1500 range. But depending on the utility of this accessory, the Rs 2500 price tag might be worth it.
