My Take on the Keyboard
I have been using this keyboard for the past few weeks and have to say that I have been impressed with how well this keyboard worked. I was far more impressed than I first thought I would be. Why? Well, I have tried mini USB wireless keyboards in the past with mixed results. I did not know how well this would connect, but I reserved my judgement until I put it through some paces.
I found that this keyboard did connect well via WIFI and held the connection well. Even though it was small I did not find that the keyboard was an issue in regards to being able to type out what I needed accurately.
I liked the fact that it came with a retractable USB cable as it made it easier to charge and allowed me to be able to move from place to place without having to bring extra cords or fearing to forget the cord along the way.
All you need is a USB port on your computer and as long as your keyboard is charged up you can make your keyboard work without fail.
I also found that the keyboard holds a charge for some time. I did not have any issue with it holding a charge with frequent use for over a month or more.
One piece of advice is to always remember to use the on/off switch though to limit the draw from the battery.
Overall, this has been a great keyboard thus far and if you are looking for a keyboard that is sturdy, easily portable, and works amazingly well, this is the one for you.
