shannonbre A Short Review of the Rii Mini Wireless Keyboard May 22nd, 2011 3:15:59 am - Subscribe

It's called a "mini" keyboard, and that's exactly what the Rii is. And what that means is that in physical terms, it's far smaller than a regular keyboard. Nearly all regular computer keyboard are approximately 18 inches by 2 inches by 8 inches, however this keyboard is merely 5.9x2.3x0.5 inches and weighs in at a mere 3.2 ounces. Someone who puts a premium price on portability will find the compact size and lightness of this mini keyboard a delight, being so handy to take wherever. Typing is rather easy on this compact unit, which fits snugly between your hands.

The Rii Mini Wireless Keyboard is fantastic for using with your laptop computer or PC, and also your PS3 or any other gaming system that supports this keyboard. Because the keyboard utilizes a Bluetooth wireless USB receiver for wireless connectivity, you don't need to mess around with any wires, and many devices are wireless these days, making it simple to hook up this keyboard to your electronics. The Rii has the usual QWERTY layout, and also the convenience of a touchpad like those we know from laptops. In case the environment is dimly lit, the unit comes equipped with 26 LED lights. This mini keyboard is furnished standard with two rechargeable lithium ion batteries, which power it up.

As far as reviews go, there are a lot on Amazon, for the most part with 4 or 5 stars. But possibly this device's first appearances are misleading, because there are as well several ratings falling between 1 and 3 stars. One observation was that the device didn't work right with an Ubuntu system over a range of 30 feet, but it was rather good within that. Nevertheless, 30 ft is quite adequate. Both playlist and volume button controls are furnished on the mini keyboard, which is terrific if the intended use is multimedia in character. Buttons that aren't frequently used also feature on this device, which is superb as they are sometimes needed so it would be an inconvenience if they weren't there.

No device is perfect, and so there are some drawbacks that must be brought up. What is a bit of a bother now and then is that the touchpad is not as precise as we are accustomed to with typical laptop computer touchpads. Another nuisance - which can be circumvented by using the mouse buttons for left and right alternatively - is that the touchpad is a little insensitive to taps. Also remember that whilst it does have the QWERTY layout, the keys are set up in a grid with straight lines vertically and horizontally, whereas conventional keyboards have a bit of an offset in the vertical grids. Eventhough it does take time to get used to it, it is not a big deal.

All in all, this device is a nice device if you're looking for a smaller size that also has a mouse touchpad. There are a couple of small drawbacks but the good things outweigh them, especially at such a good price.
