Customer Reviews

Not the best wireless keyboard First let me state that vendors who list multiple versions of a product on a single page makes it very hard to scan reviews pertaining to the version of the product you are actually considering. This keyboard and its reviews pertain to wired and wireless versions, with and without a mouse. The products are similar, but not identical between the wired and wireless versions. For clarity, I have the wireless keyboard and mouse combination.The keyboard itself is okay in its basic functions, size (maybe a little small, but I was looking for a compact keyboard) and ergonomics. No indication of shift-lock, no LED or anything, occasionally a pain. (Apparently the wired version, or some previous version included in the reviews does have an indicator LED.) No separate numeric pad (I rarely use one) and a function key to access some things mapped to "normal" keys. Again text is what I mostly do, including programming, so it works fine. That is, it would if it worked. After a couple of weeks, it started having "fits" where it would fail to register keystrokes while at the same time spitting out multiples of some keys. I am sometimes able to get it back to working by taking out the batteries for a couple of minutes, but it always seems to happen again, usually when I am engrossed in writing or coding, which breaks my train of though (at least.)The mouse is not so hot either. It sometimes fails to track well, and seems to bind and not glide smoothly across the surface. I sometimes get fed up with it and go back to my old wired USB mouse.Battery life for the keyboard and mouse have been very good (haven't needed to replace them yet, and the batteries test well.) I did replace them with new ones long enough to determine that the batteries were not the problem. Not that battery life matters given everything else.So I knew it was cheap when I bought it. Now you know why. Currently looking for a better option. 2Keys quit working after 6 onths, then my husband fixed it. Soe keys quit working after 6 onths inluding period ooa (comma) and return ditto shiftLearned y lesson this keyboard is too heap.A week after I wrote this review, my husband took it out to his shop, took the screws holding it together off, separated the top and bottom, then, shook things a little. He found that he could press the little plastic bubbles on the piece of flexible plastic inside the keyboard and they appeared to work correctly. So he put the two halves back together and now it works perfectly. Problem solved! I hope all of you can get this same result. But I am not offering to loan you my husband. You will have to provide your own magic touch. 2Excellent with one quirk Needed a smaller keyboard so that it and the mousepad would fit my new desk and so tried a couple of different brands.The Perixx was the best and after a month continues to work flawlessly. It only took a day or two to get used to the small mouse and my relatively large hands continue to struggle with the smaller "shift" and adjacent "arrow" keys, but that is an issue common to any compact keyboard.The one quirk is the default return to numbers lock "on" whenever you restart your computer; makes passwords a real adventure until you get used to turning it off right off the bat on restart.No issues with battery life yet.Overall an excellent keyboard and mouse.Update:Perixx informed me that " The default computer BIOS setting is on with "Number Lock" feature because it assumes that you are using a full size keyboard. With mini size layout, you will need to disable it with manual setup." I did and the numbers lock quirk is now gone. Easy.Update #2:There is a link to how to change the NumLock setting in BIOS for Windows; in the comments.The batteries died on the mouse after two months of daily use; the keyboard is still going strong.Update #3: After about one year the mouse became fairly random in where it wants to put the cursor at times, taking on the characteristics of one of those mice from the nursery rhyme. Unfortunately it's wireless so I can't even cut off its tail with a carving knife. 5This keyboard is just right for my smallish hands and ergonomic needs! I've been struggling with hand/wrist problems for years. Even though I'm right-handed, I switched to a left-handed mouse for a long time. When I recently began to have trouble with my left wrist, I switched back to a right-handed mouse. Unfortunately, with that configuration and a full-sized keyboard with number pad on the right side, the reach was too far to mouse with my right hand and I began having elbow trouble. Ugh!I ordered this "mini" keyboard with some trepidation but was delighted the minute I first felt the keys and began using it. The only thing that feels "mini" to me about this keyboard is that it doesn't have the number keypad. Since I didn't use that often, the better positioning of my hands and arms is well worth the trade off. I like the feel of the keyboard action, actually like the sound of it, and appreciate the full range of function keys. If you have especially large hands, this might not be they keyboard for you, but for small-handed people who don't need a numeric keypad, I highly recommend this little gem! 5Small and works as expected The keyboard functions correctly and is small and attractive. I gave it four stars because there a couple differences in the images. The keyboard is thicker than it appears on the webpage (it is less sleek in appearance but does appear sturdier). As well, the right alt key is labeled "Alt Gr" on my keyboard. It appears to function in the same way a regular alt key operates, however. Other observations (not differences): the tilt is fixed and not very high so you may want to prop it on something. The upper corners where it is lifted is rounded not sharp (at least it appears sharp to me in the image). It does not have a port for a mouse nor does it have a keypad (no keypad helps keep it nice and small though). Lastly, the manual...it only tells you (twice) the function of all the hot keys in 15 languages. There are little icons on each that accurately advise what each key so the manual is unneccessary is but here are the 11 function keys in numerical order anyway: sleep, search, email, internet, mute, volume up, volume down, scan previous track, stop, play/pause, scan next track. Now you can toss the manual and enjoy the space saving of the little keyboard. ;) 4Smaller right-shift key is not an issue I'm super pleased with this keyboard. I was worried about a few things.-Small right shift key.-Feel of the keys (some reviews called them squishy)-Sound of the keysNone of those things turned out to be a problem. I hated the smaller right shift key on a lenovo yoga 910 I had to use. But this key is plenty large enough and well positioned. I have large hands, and a long pinky reach, but my right pinky lands right in the middle of this shift key.I like the feel of the keys. There is a little more travel than most ultrabooks have, and a little less than most full size desktop keyboards. I think it is just the right amount. I also don't think they are "squishy". I've used keyboard that were squishy before. This one is not. I also think the keys have a nice break point, near the bottom of their travel.While these keys aren't as quiet as most laptop keys, they aren't as loud as most inexpensive keyboards.Things I like:-a good layout-important navigation keys (home, end, pg up, pg dn)-insert and delete keys-volume up, down, and mute keys (with fn key)-I really like that it has the num lock key and an embedded numeric keypad under the fingers of the right hand. I don't often need the numeric keypad, but it is nice to have it on the occasion that I do need it. 5Good Keyboard I've had this product only for about 1.5months.It is going fine so far.Installation is nothing. Hook it up and ready to go.I like this keyboard very much for the very standard key arrangement.The large "Enter" and "Shift" keys are must for me.The Space key is not the longest but just right.Many concise keyboards have the "Ctrl" buttons atawkward positions but this one not. The arrow keys,Page Up, Down, Home End are all on the right sidewhich is NOT the same as my full keyboard but at least there.Also what I like is the big "Backspace" key which was atiny key in my previous mini keyboard.Everything is there where and in the size you expect,which is very important to me.Of course it doesn't have the numeric key pads.Thus this small size which I benefit from very much.One thing I'm not too excited about is the key feel.First, I like the "travel" it has. My previous mini-keyboardwas much like one from a laptop computer which was very thinand there was only little travel. Resting your finger tipssometimes resulted in misspelling so you catch yourself beingcautious all the time. This one has a lot longer travel so Ifeel more "secure" (Very important, too).However, the feel is sort of MUSHY.The key only offers a rather simple resistance. It does not have theresistance peak before you hit the stroke end. Some good full size keyboardshave this "Resistance peak before the end" feel which offer nice secure feelingof typing pleasure. This one does not have that feeling. But I gladly take thisproduct for what it is and how much it is.I recommend this product if your keyboard space is limited. 4Perfect size, great quality, and fast shipping. I'm rating this keyboard 5 stars.I ordered this keyboard on May 31st, And received it on jun 9th. (Free shipping from over $49 purchase) When looking at the package, at first I was a bit sceptical about the product thinking it was a Chinese knock-off due to the sticker on the left. (see picture #1 & #2) the package itself was in excellent condition and was not damaged at all.Upon opening, the box contained (1) USB wired keyboard, and (1) User manual. (Pics #3 & #4) After that intense moment of peeling the plastic off, this (pics #5 & #6) is what you get, a slim beautiful simple keyboard.The keys are flat which is preferred, smooth with rounded edges and the white letters don't scratch off easily. It plugs right in and after installing the driver software works perfectly. It types in English, and the sound of typing is soft and quite enough to use for hours. There also is no lag when typing. It has a slim profile and sits nicely and lights up in the corner when certain keys are in use. (Pics 7-10)Overall I love this keyboard and would recommend it every time for anyone looking for a keyboard on a budget.Update!: it's been a month and still no problems. 5Worked well (for a year) I purchased this keyboard back in April 2017 to replace my full-sized Logitech K270, and it was my daily driver at work for a year and nine months (see UPDATE below). Perixx omitted the 10-keypad and relocated the cursor/navigation keys to a single column on the far-right, significantly reducing the overall width of the keyboard (compared to its full-sized brethren). This reduces the distance my right arm must move when switching between typing and controlling the mouse, which was the primary reason I purchased it in the first place.I purchased the wired model for several reasons:1) The wired model costs less than the wireless equivalent;2) I'm using it at a static desktop workstation 100% of the time;3) My Logitech MX Master mouse has already had problems with interference coming from my workstation's USB 3.0 ports (had to buy a USB extension cable to move the dongle away from the 3.0 ports and closer to my mouse); and4) The idea of having two separate dongles for my keyboard and mouse just felt ridiculous.Regarding the overall keyboarding experience, there's nothing remarkably good or bad to report. It's an inexpensive keyboard with membrane switches. Compared to your basic cheap wired keyboard that comes for free with a Dell workstation, the Perixx keyboard requires slightly less physical travel (but slightly more force) to actuate keys while providing slightly more audible and tactile feedback when keys are released (it's not noticeably loud, but this is not a 'silent' keyboard). I can touch-type with very little effort, though I wish the home key "bumps" on the [F] and [J] keys were more pronounced.The only disadvantages are pretty minor:1) Due to some unconventional key placement, I occasionally mash the [Fn] key when I mean to press the [Windows] key. I've resolved this by affixing a tiny square of gaffer's tape to the [Windows] key, so I can differentiate it from the [Fn] key by feel.2) The multimedia functions don't have their own keys (you must hold the [Fn] key while pressing the corresponding F-key to control multimedia features). This isn't so much a shortcoming; it's part of the design to keep the footprint small, but I've found it to be enough of a hassle that I just use my mouse to raise/lower volume or switch tracks on my playlists.3) This keyboard is purely USB plug-and-play (no additional software included or available), so there's no easy way to re-assign multimedia shortcuts or re-map unused keys to other functions (I've used AutoHotKey to re-map the [CapsLock] key so that pressing it launches Windows Task View).4) After over a year of use, the printed labels on several keys have worn away.5) Uhhhhh.... It's not mechanical or even scissor-switch...? But for the price, I can hardly complain.In summary, this is a solid choice if you're looking for a space saving non-specialty keyboard or trying to up your ergonomic game a bit. It's lasted far longer than I expected.2019-01-25 UPDATE: After a year and nine months of near-daily use, the keyboard has developed intermittent issues with several keys not registering when I press them (most notably the left [Ctrl] key), so I've replaced it with a Velocifire tenkeyless mechanical keyboard. Bummer, but still not bad at all for $17. 3Perfect...Compact, Nice Keys, And Solid Footing On It.. This keyboard has turned out to be just what I needed. I have a lap top with Vista that still runs very well, but the keyboard on it has seen better days. Some of the keys stick, and others just stopped working. Some time ago I set up the lap top to be on a shelf with a USB board down in front of me. The one I have been using was purchased at Staples and larger, has old time keys that require a lot of travel, and generally is cheap and frustrating. I sprang for this one that is actually cheaper in price than the one I have been using and couldn't be happier. I like the compact design after using the keyboard on my laptop for so many years, and especially the keys on it that are larger, flatter, and much more like the one on the actually lap top that I was so used too. Setting this up was a breeze. Even with my old laptop I just plugged it in and less than 10 seconds later it was hot...As mentioned before in some other reviews, the num lock is activated with every boot up, as well as when first plugging it in. But that was easily remedied by pressing the FN plus NUM-LCK key at the same time as was suggested. As for it being a plug in, with the set up I have here that isn't any problem since the cord on it just falls behind the table and never in the way. I prefer it over a wireless that needs batteries and can sometimes lose the connection. One last thing. The feet on this are of a nice rubber that really keep it held in place. My other keyboard had so called footing on it but left a lot to be desired. I even added a non skid pads to my other one and it still wasn't as good as this is. Overall this keyboard is really nice quality, the perfect size I wanted, and very comfortable to use.. For a compact wired unit, they don't come any better for the price...Highly recommended.. 5
