Pros: Mac/Windows XP and Vista compatible; Stylish design; Simple setup
Cons: Uncomfortable after long use; No keyboard stand option; No volume control on keyboard
Verdict: This skinny mouse and keyboard make a good--but not great--companion to your notebook's confined touchpad and keyboard.
Sleek Design (Maybe Too Sleek)
The keyboard itself is spacious, and the flat keys are soft to the touch, but they still feel as though they belong on a notebook. Aside from the number pad and five hot keys, the keyboard is free of extras. It has no volume adjustment, no connection button for the RF adapter, and no feet on the bottom to adjust the typing angle. Propping up the keyboard with Post-it notepads improved our wrists' position, but we still found it uncomfortable. An optional media remote--available for $20--makes up for the lack of media and volume controls.
Test-Driving the Mouse
We liked the BlackBerry Pearl-esque trackball on the mouse, which replaces the traditional wheel; it was easy to scroll Web pages vertically and horizontally. The best part about the mouse is that you can throw it into a laptop bag, and quickly connect it to any notebook. After we plugged the dongle into a Dell XPS, the mouse and keyboard worked instantly, although installing the included Kensington drivers provides greater control.
This innovative mouse offers a new way to play the latest games but falls short on ease of use.
