Mac look alike – Rechargeable 78-Key Ultra-Slim Wireless Keyboard + Batteries Power Wireless Mouse Set (2xAAA) Reviews

posted by Budapest on 09/15/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Keyboard works very well - very precise Ctrl + Fn key correctly placed unlike certain brands Short travel scissor like action - v.precise and fast and accurate for touch typing Almost indiscernable difference to the apple keyboard with the advantage of functional PC keys
Cons:
On repeated startups sometimes the wireless signal is not picked up The scroll region on the mouse is a very narrow strip and will not respond even if your finger is placed slightly out of the sensitive band The major critism is the left and right click is very difficult to activate - the sweet spot is very narrow - needs excessively firm pressure Keys does have a slight gap - can pick up dust unlike the apple KB which is sealed
Other:
Unusual that instructions insist that the USB dongle is paired w/o batteries in the either the keyboard or mouse The mouse tracking functions with no light ( tracking is fine though) and tracking is lightning fast (v.high DPI ) The keyboard is a faux metallic paint finish on plastic - not aluminium like the apple - but does not detract from its functionality
Bottomline:
Keyboard is great - cannot fault it Biggest letdown is the form over function mouse design - the L & R clicks are not smooth and very hard to activate THe Scroll is very frustrating to use and frequently poor response to finger touch especially on the backward up sroll ( always an issue with all touch sensors rather than mechanical action switches) Keyboard 5 stars - Mouse only 2-3 stars
