      Disadvantages

      A Mini Miracle piece of kit that everyone should have .

      My Hubby was having problems with his back , sitting in a chair leaning backwards and forwards whilst using his laptop .We decided he needed a wireless keyboard and duly searched the net for the perfect one.

      There was a multitude of keyboards to choose from , but I believe I have found the BEST .You know what men are like , Masters of the Remote control .The Keyboard I found was perfect .the size of a remote control , but with all the functions bells and whistles included ..( Well not literally ) .

      As anyone who reads my reviews will be aware I am NOT technically minded , it took me three years to work out how to get music into my MP3 player ! But here goes with my review for this keyboard , please excuse the lack of Tech Talk .

      I purchased the 2.4G 2.4GHz Wireless Rii Mini PC Keyboard Touchpad V2 Black from Amazon for a reasonable £34.05 ( free delivery too what a bargain ).

      I was given the delivery date and waited , Unusually the item arrived three days before expected . I eagerly ripped the cardboard packaging ( well done amazon for providing recyclable cardboard ) to look at the contents .

      SHOCKED ...That was my first reaction .this keyboard is the size of a remote control !

      Inside the box was the keyboard and a usb charging cable . That was it !

      How easy it is to set up ...It's so easy even a 2 year old could do it .After first using the usb adapter to fully charge the unit .There is a Bluetooth adapter in the top of the keypad that slides out and you just plug into a port on your laptop or Pc and away you go .Navigating using the touchpad is simple and the qwerty keyboard UK layout means you know where all the buttons are . There are indicator lights on the keypad which tell you when it needs charging and the battery strength and a communication indicator that shows it is receiving the signal.

      The Unit

      The actual unit weighs just 100grams , it has a fully functioning qwerty keyboard , complete with multi media and PC control keys , and here come the bells and whistles ....It has a Laser pointer and a Touchpad which can be used vertically and horizontally ( not that I expect my husband to be making any presentations with it , unless its to point out what gadget he wants next ) and here's the icing on the cake... this keyboard can be used in the dark , the keys Lightup ! No more having to have a light on at night in order to see the keyboard .

      Within a minute of plugging the unit in my hubby was happily surfing the net sitting comfortably in his recliner .

      If you are used to using a Blackberry or the like then this would be ideal .

      For those that want the Technical details I have copied them ...I may one day learn what they mean ...but I'm not holding out much hope .

      The keyboard will comfortably last for 12 hours being used continuously before needing to be recharged , a full recharge takes two hours just plug the USB cable in and wait for the red light to flash..simple !

      Not sure what any of that means but , regardless , If it was possible to give this 10 stars I would . Simple functions and easy to set up even for the biggest Technophobe , Just one request please don't all rush out and buy one till I have bought a spare !
