While there is a massive shift to cable-powered mice and keyboards, the need for wireless solutions remains.
And in this segment, the choice of quality products is small.
The wireless kit is manufactured in the Republic of China.
The set is packed in a perfectly tolerable cardboard box.
The box contains: keyboard, mouse, batteries, transceiver, and documentation.
There is a lot of documentation, as usual.
The keyboard itself is ergonomically shaped.
The keyboard panel has a glossy finish.
The keyboard contains 105 main keys and 19 additional keys. Vendors have very different values for the number of keys. I'm too lazy to count.
The upper row of auxiliary and multimedia buttons is made in the upper part of the keyboard case. They have a clear and distinct click. Unlike auxiliary keys, the main keys have membrane technology. It is no different from millions of other rubber-matrix keyboards. Of all the keyboards, I didn’t like the one with the plunger mechanism.
The wrist rest has a rubber-like, grooved finish that is large and very comfortable.
On the bottom edge, some keys have hints for key combinations. The font on the keyboard is glued, so if the user has claws like a bear, he will quickly peel off.
In addition, the keyboard has separate legs on the bottom, there are also five legs for the stability of the keyboard.
There are also holes on the bottom of the keyboard for the discharge of accidentally poured liquid onto the keyboard.
As usual, the keyboard contains a warning about the risk of acquiring an occupational disease from using the keyboard and mouse, and it is recommended that you read the manual on "Principles of Safe Computer Use".
Keyboard specification sticker. Interesting for myself is that the keyboard was released in 2015 and the keyboard has a current consumption of 50 milliamperes. The claimed 15 months of battery life is hard to believe.
Despite the fact that from an engineering point of view it is difficult to find fault with the kit, there are flaws in the Chinese assembly.
The keyboard comes with detachable legs that can be installed both on the bottom of the keyboard and on the top.
The legs have a durable rubber coating.
The legs are attached by pushing on the case and turning in the direction of the arrow indicated on the keyboard case.
Due to the fact that the legs on the keyboards are constantly breaking (especially on Microsoft keyboards, which constantly had to be glued and reinforced), this solution is just a pleasant surprise for users of Microsoft products.
The mouse is small in size and nevertheless, due to its shape, it fits perfectly even in a large palm.
The upper part of the mouse is absolutely glossy.
The mouse keys fit perfectly under the fingers and have good tactile feedback.
The mouse wheel has a rubber coating and has additional buttons with longitudinal pressure.
On the left side above the thumb is an additional control button.
On the right side there is a similar one. Since the mouse is intended for people with left and right grip, all elements are symmetrical.
Most of the mouse, including the back, is covered with a rubber coating.
Retailers claim mouse accuracy up to 988 DPI. The cover contains a compartment for attaching the transceiver (transceiver) and easy portability. It should be noted that the sliding legs are well-designed - they are made as sectors of a circle, so there will be no effect of the mouse jumping on an uneven surface or with uneven grinding of simple spacers to slide over the surface.
The mouse is powered by 2 AA batteries. There are no straps for quick removal of the batteries - a system a la "Break your nails". Data available for up to a year of operation from one set of batteries. It's hard to believe too.
The included transceiver and batteries are tightly rewound with tape - very competently, nothing will be lost.
The transceiver has the Microsoft logo, which will not be confused with a USB flash drive.
The transceiver has an encryption system that will not allow intercepting a signal from a mouse or keyboard. The declared range of work is up to 10 meters. Nice kit. Everything is spoiled only by the dark blue Cyrillic font on the keys, which is practically invisible in a dark room.
