Kensington SlimBlade Media Notebook Set - Review of the Kensington SlimBlade Media Notebook Set

 

This skinny mouse and keyboard make a good--but not great--companion to your notebook's confined touchpad and keyboard.

Mac/Windows XP and Vista compatible, • Stylish design

Uncomfortable after long use, • No keyboard stand option, Mouse Weight: 4 ounces, , , , , , , Sleek Design (Maybe Too Sleek), SlimBlade is an apt name for Kensington's new line, as it successfully cuts down the size of a peripheral keyboard and mouse...

Kensington SlimBlade Media Notebook Set review

 

A media keyboard with a twist, but does it work?

Good quality keyboard

Expensive ; Extras are not well made

A good idea in theory, but Kensington have a long way to go before they can pull this one off

Kensington Slimblade set

 

EVERYTHING about this keyboard set is quality. Very nice keys; quiet, positive feeling. Keyboard function even works in BIOS, meaning it's recognized as a USB keyboard and appears to the I/O as "present". Mouse does, as well, but not on all...

Wireless range is fantastic. Lightweight. VERY compfortable mouse and positive feeling short-throw chicklet keys. Excellent battery life

The mouse ball cannot be cleaned

Perfect combo

 

If you're not big on gaming or anything this is a great keyboard for you. Personally I like to save space on my desk so I love that this keyboard is slim and portable -- do not purchase this if you're looking for a full on desktop keyboard with all the...

Slim, great design, works flawlessly from 10 feet away. Detachable keypad is helpful since I do not use it, it saves space

None so far

One Sweet Keyboard!

 

This is a rugged keyboard (I own 3, and yes, they have unique frequencies) great battery life. The BEST feature is SILENCE. It is small enough not to be a desk hog, yet large enough to not be cramped. I use a trackball, so I cannot speak to the mouse....
