Control your PC or Mac with this wireless handheld keyboard with touchpad

on September 25, 2009 10:26 am

efo-wireless-keyboardWe’ve all seen compact wireless keyboards that you can use to control your computer or HTPC from several feet away, but this keyboard from EFO looks like a great alternative. For one thing, it has a much smaller form factor and is backlit. It also has a built in touch pad so you can control the cursor. It requires a USB dongle and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux. You can get one for $40.

    I like the looks of this much more than what I currently use for my “living room PC” which is hooked to my TV. Currently, I use a full sized wireless keyboard. I think this would be much better for what I need.

    Any chance of getting a review of this item?

    Thanks!

    I would also love to see a review of this. The touchpad on my current wireless keyboard is unreliable and I have been looking for alternatives.

    I’d hook my Mac Mini back up to my TV to test this keyboard… :) I’ve asked them to allow me to review it. Keep your fingers crossed.

    I bought a Logitech DiNovo Mini for this purpose. Works great, and I like the fact that I can choose between using the provided dongle or the built-in Bluetooth. Of course, it also costs more than twice what the EFO device does.

    What I’d *really* like to see is an Apple Bluetooth keyboard with a built-in multi-touch touchpad. That would be just about perfect, both for desktop use and for home theater Mac use.

    There is also a great keyboard app for the iPhone / iPod Touch called Air Mouse Pro that also allows Mac and PC keyboard and mouse control via the touch screen. A less expensive alternative if you have one.

    I bought one on impulse. Not bad actually. Range is pretty good and the quality seems fine (though not great)
