Small, light and portable
on 4 February 2013
This is a small keyboard by most standards and uses two provided AAA batteries. There is a small LED indicator in the top right-hand corner which flashes alternately red and green when not paired with another device. Once paired, the light expires. On the underside and all gathered towards one top corner is the battery compartment cover and its release button, the pairing button which needs a pen or something with a blunt point to operate, and the power switch which is small and needs a sharp fingernail.
In my instance, the keyboard did not pair when the button was depressed for a few seconds and repeating it a couple of times more. It was manually paired when choosing to Add New Device through Windows' Control Panel. It took about a minute or so and needed a generated code to be entered on the keyboard. The process completed in a few seconds more.
Buyers should be aware that this is a fairly slim and flat keyboard that does not utilise any risers and therefore sits rather low on the desktop. Due to its small size, it could be used on the floor, on your lap or anywhere, as long it remains within the normal Bluetooth range of about 10 meters.
No software is provided, nor is it needed and it is assumed that Bluetooth is incorporated within whatever device with which it is to be used. A PC/laptop without Bluetooth will require the purchase on a USB adapter, which will be usable on many computers whereas an internal card adapter may not.
Not quite perfect although there is nothing obviously or seriously negative about it, 4.5 stars is probably a realistic rating.
