I realize that I definitely have a thing for nice input devices. I’m always on the lookout for a good keyboard and mouse (especially at work), since I type and sit all day long. Recently I had the chance to review the Rapoo E9070 Wireless Ultra-slim Keyboard, so I took the chance since I already use a Rapoo 3100P wireless mouse at home and really like it. Let’s take a look!

The first thing I noticed when opening the Rapoo E9070 is how ultra-slim it actually is. It measures only 5.6 mm (0.22 inches) thin!
Other technical specs are:
- Wireless transmission up to 10 meters (32.8 feet)
- 2.4G wireless connection
- Fn key media controls
- Dimensions: 4.3″ x 13.35″ x 0.22″
- Requires: 2 AAA batteries (included) – They claim 24 month battery life
The back of the keyboard has a stainless steel type finish. Quite nice, but why have that on the back where you don’t normally look at the keyboard?
The “bump” in the back holds 2 AAA batteries and the on/off switch.
The Rapoo E9070 has a 99 keys layout, with small arrow keys and a slightly shifted number pad. Rapoo’s website states the keys are a “scissor-key mechanical structure”, for even typing and pressure. The keys themselves are full and have a soft sound when pressed, unlike your average mechanical keyboard. I prefer a bit more space in between keys, but typing on it was still comfortable.
I really enjoyed using this keyboard for my daily tasks. I tried it on a Windows PC, Mac, and Chromebox, and it worked well with all operating systems. The media controls worked with Windows and Chrome OS. The Rapoo E9070 Wireless Ultra-Slim Keyboard comes in black and white, and is available on Amazon or various online retailers for about $33 – $39.
