MS Keyboard Closeup from End

I decided that I would write this review with the product I’m reviewing, the Microsoft All-in-One Media keyboard, and I’ll tell you right from the start that it is likely the last thing that I’ll type with this keyboard.

When I was a kid, I used my mom's old Underwood typewriter to write my own stories and newsletters that only myself and my sister read. I loved that typewriter, fitting in a piece of paper, twisting the knob on the platen to position the paper, pressing down the keys and seeing the individual type [...]

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 [...]

There are all sorts of cases with built-in keyboards for iPads and Android tablets. But the problem with 99% of them is that they aren't designed to allow you to use the tablet + keyboard on your lap like you can with a laptop computer. Another problem is that most of the keyboards used with [...]

When it comes to PC gaming, one of the sounds you hate to hear is that "beep!" when you've pressed down too many keys. This is due to most average keyboards having a set number of keys allowed to be pressed at the same time. The way to combat this is to pick up a [...]

During my vacation planning this year, I decided that I was going to leave my 13in Macbook Air laptop at home and only take my Nexus 7 2013 Android tablet. I figured it was a good way to keep me from wanting to do real work while I was supposed to be relaxing on Sanibel [...]

None of the laptops and keyboards I've had in the past several years has had a separate numeric keypad, and I still miss them.  Even for something as simple as entering my ZIP Code, I often begin to reach for the right side of my Apple Bluetooth keyboard before I remember there are no number [...]

I haven't had a keyboard with a numeric keypad in many years, but my hand still automatically starts to move to the right whenever I need to enter numbers.  I considered buying Apple's wired keyboard with a number pad, but it's too big to fit on my desk and allow room for my mouse.  Satechi [...]
