Review: Adesso Wireless USB Trackball Keyboard
Don’t you hate it when you buy a new gadget and don’t have the batteries it needs? This new keyboard from Adesso avoids that let down. Batteries ARE included. No more scrounging around for those AA Batteries that you need just to get this keyboard to work
This little keyboard is great for the multi-media user. With the 100-ft range you can sit on the couch, relax, and set up your music without having to get up and go to the computer. Or if you are that Fortune 500 CEO and you are doing a presentation in the conference room. You can now walk around the room and still control your media presentation. Even if you are just the basic computer user you will find much utility and love for this little guy. It is an easy to use, plug-n-play, keyboard that requires no
Logitech is probably the first name most people think of for input devices like keyboards, mice and hubs…and why not, they’ve been around since 1985…pretty much from the start for mainstream computers.
Logitech posted some interesting information about selling their one billionth mouse after being in the market for 20+ years. The first mouse from the Switzerland-based Logitech was the P4 (pictured above), which began mass production in 1985 at the company’s birthplace. Logitech reached the 100 millionth mouse mark in 1996, and subsequently, topped 500 millionth 7 years later. The company is now selling at a rate of 376,000 mice per day and 7.8 million every month.
Most of us are typical PC users or laptop users and have become accustomed to our keyboard size and key locations, but for a select few, you run off a table PC or Netbook. If that’s the case, then you’re probably looking for a nice, compact, portable travel keyboard. Today we found your item.
The Atek OnBoard USB keyboard is compact in size, layout like a full QWERTY keyboard and sturdy case for portability. The OnBoard uses a slide out protective case during transit and an inflatable wrist pad for once you’ve settled in. The keyboard uses a USB cable to connect and has a tight wrap-around storage area for the cable iteself.
Atek is proud to divert away from the traditional portable USB keyboards such as fold-up, roll-up and miniature keyboards.
The OnBoard has 99 keys (missing are the Print Screen, Scroll Lock, Pause Break, and right side Ctrl and Windows keys) together with separate numeric keys and a full (if squashed) F-key row. It weighs under 1.4lbs. The ‘board measures 14-3/4 inches long and the cover can act as an angled stand.
I am all for spicing up the computer world with cool designs, colors and shapes, but sometimes even the most valiant effort fails. Case in point: The Nishi-Ki keyboard is the ugliest keyboard you will ever see, despite it’s attempt to be a beautiful piece of artwork.
At just a glance, or even long stare, you can’t guess what’s printed on the keyboard. Just ugliness.
Apparently there are unique and customized butterfly and flowers painted on to each key. Wow – that takes time, and to justify those wasted hours Nishi-Ki is charging about $155 per keyboard.
