Customer Review

On my Macbook in the office, I use recently an original Apple keyboard, after I've been working for months with a small BT keyboard, which is but constantly came to erroneous entries. Since then helps the chic design anything.
The Apple keyboard is naturally processed and great looks stylish but has a decisive disadvantage: it has no numeric keypad. Although I once learned, with 10 fingers to write blindly, but have only visited the beginners course and therefore the numbers can not blindly tap, I like it much better when I have a separate number pad. In addition, my job and lives on with numbers and so I often tap in my computer just such.

This brings us to the topic:
The Speedlink keyboard keys are in the usual size (so to speak full frame). So I can write wonderfully blind here. In addition, the keyboard has the long lost to me keypad. There is finally back for me real arrow keys and other keys (Del., Etc.), which certainly has never missed someone who has never worked with a small Apple keyboard.

Is fired the keyboard of two AA batteries, which the manufacturer has kindly packed to equal.

The connection via Bluetooth worked right off the bat, this was necessary take a quick look in the manual. Prima: As expected, the keyboard connects immediately again when times longer time was pause. That's when cheap keyboards usually not the case and can be annoying really.

The keyboard fits snugly on the desk thanks to the rubberized Füsschen and can be placed at the top of something.

The keyboard can be operated simultaneously with a simple switch (Fn + F1-F5) with up to 5 devices. I have tested this with the iPhone, the switching is complete without delay on the stage. A good feature if you need them for.

Prima: there is even a UBS cable, if a BT connection is not possible or desired.

Identifies the key top is glued, which unfortunately provides significantly. Well, maybe that's the time.

Unfortunately my Apple keyboard disappears from the desktop, Speedlink has taken the reins ...
I give brief but deserved in my eyes 5 star because the keyboard does what it should and this without a murmur.
