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.

Inside the box is a wireless keyboard, a wireless mouse, a USB receiver, batteries for both the mouse and keyboard, and the driver disk.
The keyboard is about 18" wide by 5½" deep by ¾" tall.
After installation, I unplugged my original keyboard, a traditional Microsoft one. I am currently typing on the Verbatim keyboard. I also have a Wacom Intuos4 Medium Pen Tablet and have found no hardware conflicts.
I have some customer images to show how it compares visually next to a traditional keyboard and mouse.
Here's what I like and don't like about the Verbatim Wireless Slim Keyboard:
It has a nice weight to it so it will not slide around on a desk too easily.
The keys are nicely responsive. They are smooth and spaced a little apart making it easier to hit the key you want and not the one next to it. Other keyboards have the keys so large with no gaps so that it is easy to hit multiple keys in one stroke.
It is small, not so much in width but in depth. My traditional keyboard is two inches more in depth.
It takes up less desk space and has no cord to get in the way.Read more ›
1. Small form factor, both the board and mouse are nice and slim
2. very responsive keys, they have a great feel to them and are very easy to get used to.
3. full keyboard !!!!! It's not often run into a good full wireless board with a number pad for a nice price.
4. mouse, very precise and tracks really well.
5. mouse, comfortable in hand (I typically prefer trackballs but this mouse is rather nice).
6. mouse, scroll wheel is click-able to use the mouse to move around faster up and down pages or around images.
1. auto-shutoff doesn't seem to ever occur, not even sure if they do ever shutoff on their own.
2. no manual shutoff switch.... Why wasn't this included so that when you walk away or take these with you you can just shut them off... Instead you have to take the batteries out. it's a pain in the butt.
I've been using this product for some time now and they batteries do seem to last a pretty good long time in the mouse and keyboard. I still ended up installing a switch to cut the power in both products as I like to take them with me to my presentations as the keyboard is very light weight and the mouse works pretty good as well. So the issue of not being able to turn them off when in a bag without a switch is still a big issue for their design, though I do have to say that I've left the mouse on for considerable amounts of time (months) and the batteries were still good.
Still a pretty good product and worth having and if you aren't as stringent as me and don't travel with the board and mouse then the lack of power switches wont be an issue for you.
There are 3 parts (the CD and instructions were not needed on a win7 desktop): USB receiver, keyboard, and mouse to evaluate
The receivers are pretty basic - just a stub that plugs into any usb port and looks like a keyboard/mouse on the system. Since few bios's recognize bluetooth today, we are stuck with USB receivers that mimic a real keyboard and mouse. A true bluetooth wireless system can't be guaranteed to work until the o/s is up and running which limits it to number pads on laptops with builtin BT. Microsoft has a unique feature that when you are not using the mouse for an extended period you can remove the receiver and snap it into the bottom of the mouse which powers off the mouse light to save batteries. The Verbatim has a manul 'connect' button which in most cases is not required. Neither product has had a problem here - they are plug and play out of the box with no need to use any connect function.Read more ›
