From the Manufacturer
Like all technology, keyboards have continued to evolve and adapt as user’s needs and wants have changed. If you’re still using the keyboard that came with your computer, you may not be getting the best experience possible. Before buying a new keyboard, it’s important to understand your own specific needs. Is a lack of cables important to you? Would you rather have specific function keys? Do you perform a lot of calculations, making a numeric keypad a necessity? With virtually thousands of options, buying a new keyboard can be a confusing process. But there are several things you should definitely consider as you make your decision.
Corded vs. Wireless vs. Bluetooth
Traditionally, keyboards have had a cable that connects the keyboard to the computer using a USB port, hence a corded keyboard, and using a corded keyboard has its advantages. Being connected means you’re free from lag and interference issues, and you don’t have to worry about changing batteries or charging your keyboard, as the keyboard draws power from the computer. However, you are limited by how long the cord is, and the extra clutter of a cable may bother you. If your computer has limited USB ports, using one for a keyboard may be a concern, and you may want to consider a wireless option.
Wireless keyboards are either receiver-based or Bluetooth-based. Receiver-based keyboards connect to the computer via a nano receiver that plugs into a USB port. Without cords, you are free to position the keyboard where it is comfortable for you. Typically, wireless keyboards operate on a 2.4GHz connection, meaning there is virtually no lag. However, if you need to be completely lag-free, e.g. you’re a serious gamer, you may want to consider a corded keyboard to eliminate lag altogether. There is also the chance for interference, as many other devices operate on a 2.4GHz connection. Another consideration is battery life; as wireless keyboards don’t pull power from the computer, they either use batteries, which must be replaced, or the keyboard itself must be recharged.
Bluetooth keyboards connect to your computer or other device via a Bluetooth connection. You can also use them with other Bluetooth-capable devices such as some smartphones and tablets. Using this connection means they don’t tie up a USB port, which may be an important factor for you. Bluetooth keyboards also have the advantage of mobility – with ranges up to 30 ft. you are not limited to direct proximity to your device. However, as with standard wireless keyboards, lag can be a concern – especially at greater distances.
More to Consider
Keyboards, next to displays and mice, are the most used parts of your computer. Your hands go to it every time you sit down and it’s probably the last thing you touch. And using a poorly designed keyboard can lead to pain and joint inflammation. Several features can make keyboards more comfortable. Wrist rests can help cushion your wrists as you type. Slim, low profile keyboards and keyboards with adjustable tilt and height can help keep your wrists in a more natural alignment. Or, if you need them, full ergonomic keyboards are also available.
A full-size keyboard will generally give you more functions, such as a full numeric keypad perfect for calculations, or additional features like brightness and volume controls and full-size function keys. Full-size keyboards can also be more comfortable to use, as they allow for more natural hand and wrist alignment while typing and have the size to accommodate more ergonomic features.
If you’re an avid smartphone and/or tablet user, choosing a keyboard that’s compatible with your mobile devices may be important to you. Mobile keyboards can take your device from leisure to work, as answering emails and editing documents on your mobile device becomes as easy as working on your computer. Most mobile keyboards work via a Bluetooth connection so they will require charging or replacement. These keyboards are also generally smaller and more portable so you may not have all the functionality of a full-size keyboard. But, if working on the go is important to you, buying a keyboard that is mobile-compatible may be the answer.
If you listen to music while using your keyboard, selecting a model with music and media controls may be important to you. Having the ability to play, pause, skip tracks, and adjust volume directly from the keyboard means you can virtually control your music without ever leaving the screen you’re working on.
Smart Function Keys
Some more advanced keyboards now have Smart Function keys, either as separate keys or as a function of another key. Every keyboard will vary in this aspect, but some of the more common smart functions include: adjusting the brightness, cut/copy/paste, and search.
Top Customer Reviews
I do agree with prior review comments regarding the differently-sized keys that are on each side of the keyboard split (particularly the "G" key being 1/3rd smaller than the "H" key next to it and the "B" key being a 1/3rd smaller than the "V" key next to it). I'm sure there's a reason for this but...looking at the keyboard carefully I can't figure it out. But it does feel a little weird. For the most part, the keys are basically the same size as those on the Apple wireless keyboard, although they're all right next to each other as opposed to the spacing between the Apple keyboard's keys.Read more ›
There are no directions for pairing with an Android device, so here are the steps:
Turn on blue tooth.
Scan for devices.
Turn on the keyboard.
Push the "Pair" button with a pen.
Select the keyboard.
It will ask for a 4 number password. Enter any 4 numbers.
Enter the same 4 number password you entered in Android.
Also, this keyboard is nearly exactly the same as the "Freedom Pro Bluetooth Portable Folding Keyboard". It looks the same and has the same internal packaging. The only difference is that the Freedom keyboard has a switch to change from HID to SPP. From the directions, I gathered that SPP is for Blackberries. Also, the printing on the keys was different. Otherwise, they're twins. Oh, and the Freedom is thirty dollars more expensive. I bought both.
The fatal flaw I mentioned in the title is the keyboard layout. Its sort of laid out like a standard keyboard, and they tried to make up for its size by making the letter keys larger and the number and function keys smaller. Even so, the relative positions are off slightly from a standard keyboard, and not all the letter keys are the same size. The V key for instance is twice as wide and the adjacent B key. The 1 key is centered of the W, not slightly to the left of the Q, that's where the escape key is on this one. Also the tiny backspace and tab buttons throw me off and I find I often am hitting keys I don't intend. I have only used it for a few hours, but I still haven't gotten used to it. I can't seem to keep my fingers over the keys I expect them to be over and I find that even if I watch my hands while I type, its still a bit cumbersome. I am very familiar with typing on a keyboard, so this isn't a user-related problem.
Bottom line is that I got this for the tactile feedback of a real keyboard while using my iPad and trying to avoid sacrificing the portability. The reality is, that it is easier to type on the iPad than on this keyboard.
If I find I get used to it, or if I find it so unusable that I decide to return it, I'll come back and post an update.
I couldn't get used to it. I returned it.
There was nothing very bad for this item, so I decided to give it a shot, given it's not a high investment.
From the moment I opened the package, I was happy with the product. The packaging has a good presentation. The product just made it even better. Great material, sturdy and the good attention to detail.
The item also comes with a little travel bag to protect it, which is a nice touch.
Now for the keyboard functionality, usability, etc....
The keyboard is a full keyboard with some changes to accommodate the portable design. Top and bottom keys are smaller than the middle ones, but adaptation is not that hard. I have small hands, so it's hard for me to tell how good/bad it is if you have big hands.
I've been using this with my iPad and the bluetooth connection is almost instant. It pairs very fast, especially after the first pairing.
One very cool thing about the keyboard is the integration with iPad media keys, like volume, preview/next, play/pause and also a button that corresponds to the home button on the iPad.
The keyboard is like a laptop keyboard as far as touch and feel goes. And once you start getting used to it, adaptability is definitely not hard, especially if you know how to type fast. You might have to slow down a bit at the beginning, but nothing that would compromise performance.
Also, I don't really consider it a downside in the product, because there's not really much more you can do with limited, compact space. That's why I chose a small keyboard in the first place!Read more ›
