Kensington Mouse and Brando Keyboard : Kensington Ci10 Fit & 2.4GHz Entertainment Slim Keyboard with Smart Touchpad from Brando

 

First a wireless notebook laser mouse from Kensington with the catchy Ci10 Fit name. Second a keyboard from Brando with Smart Touchpad for those who spend their days typing in figures or using their fingers in controls.

This is just slightly smaller than a standard mouse at 10.5x6x3.5cm. The 4.5x1.5x.5cm receiver fits into the base of the mouse when not in use and this saves the possibility of the mouse and receiver ending up in different places. The mouse is black...

Great value

 

This keyboard is very slim and light, making it ideal if you need to move it around a lot for whatever reason. The keys are pretty shallow and flush against each other, facilitating fast typing. The keys have just the right amount of depth and...

Low key travel, functions mapped to F keys accessible through function button, dedicated volume keys, slim, light, cheap

None that stand out

Second One

 

This is the second K72357US that I've owned, I replaced my previous one after almost 5 years of service. In the realm of non-mechanical keyboards, this is hands down the best bang for your buck. Many prefer full size keys, but using this on a desktop...

Cheap Slim Simple / No bull layout Sharp, tight feeling key feedback. Fairly durable.

Keys will break if you're not careful while cleaning.

Good Enough

 

Why the giant delete key? Maybe because they had to make one large and figured delete key would be most useful.

I'm pleased with what I got for the price. Good for a chicklet kbd. Sturdy for a kbd of this price. Plenty of MM keys for those who use them.

Odd layout, but that is part of how they made it compact.

Great keyboard

 

Slim, small footprint, very comfortable keys.

Meh.

 

Bought this keyboard because it had multimedia keys and because the layout was closest to my laptop (alt key placement was a concern). The feel put me off immediately, and I never did get used to it. Because of how stiff the keystroke is, after 18...

Thin and flat form factor allows for less vertical kink in the wrists if you don't always lift your arms like you're supposed to (like me, that is) ; Multimedia keys and laptop function keys are useful ; Key caps have a "stepped" shape, making it...

The black plastic shows dust and crumbs easily (which all seems to collect in the dado formed by the stepped keys). Must be cleaned semi-regularly ; Keys require a lot of force, have short travel, and have an unpleasant "thud" at the bottom of the...

Highly recommend

 

* I never had this layout with the big delete key and the insert key on the same level as the F keys. I like this change, so it's a pro for me. They also didn't make the mistake (in my view) of putting the Fn key in the bottom left corner instead of...

* Bumps on F and J keys aren't raised that high or thick and no key lighting. These are miniscule problems.

Smooth and Silent!!!

 

Windows 7 had to load drivers for it to be recognized, which was something I didn't expect (probably due to the function keys). I totally love this keyboard after only a day. Hopefully, it will be as durable as it is smooth and silent.

Smooth typing and nearly silent keystrokes. If you are tired of loud clacking keyboards, get this and never look back. Volume controls and additional function keys are just a sweet bonus to an otherwise awesome keyboard. It's very much like a laptop...

Slightly non-standard key layout for navigation keys and Home/Delete keys. Not a huge issue for me since I am not a touch typist. I actually like the oversize Delete key.
