Our Verdict A decent budget keyboard, with enough to make itself appealing at the price. Hiding the RF receiver at the back of the PC is a recipe for jumpy mouse tracking and poor typing response. Opening up the box you are presented with the keyboard contained within a polythene bag, a driver CD, instruction manual, USB dongle and a pack of four Energizer AAA batteries. I’d get one, no problem. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as rubberised keys have a tendency to wear out quite quickly and often leave keyboards looking shabby.

Hiding the RF receiver at the back of the PC is a recipe for jumpy mouse tracking and poor typing response.
The range is extremely short and is easily impaired by large objects. Around the back of the packaging, Keysonic have thankfully gone into greater detail, displaying a full image of the keyboard along with a specifications list in three European languages. Opening up the box you are presented with the keyboard contained within a polythene bag, a driver CD, instruction manual, USB dongle and a pack of four Energizer AAA batteries.
While the track pad feels like one taken from an early laptop, it’s perfectly adequate for browsing files and Web pages, but users who 62 higher precision will become frustrated at its unresponsiveness.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as rubberised keys have a tendency to wear out quite quickly and often leave keyboards looking shabby. Its a nice looking keyboard, and a cheap combo at that, but, touchpad mice just aren’t my thing. I do have to agree with you on the aluminium touch-pad surround being removed too as it also looks out of place may be the colour. If you run into any problems, just drop us a message on the forums.
What a nice looking compact keyboard.
Our Verdict A decent budget keyboard, with enough to make itself appealing at the price. Small, easy to stash, and touchpad to the right, as opposed to under the spacebar which is a pita imo.

Against Not the most comfortable to use Feels cheap. At akc top of the keyboard are a total of 11 hot-keys.
The main body of the keyboard has a rubber-like texture that makes the keyboard slightly more comfortable to use than if it were hard plastic, but the keys themselves are fairly standard. If I were in the market for a wireless keyboard I think I’d certainly have a crack at one – you’d be mad not to at the price. The keyboard itself is no ergonomic masterpiece, and feels like you’re working on a laptop. I’d get one, no problem.
There are also the usual play, pause, volume and track skipping buttons along the top for easy control of media playback, together with four customisable hot keys that can be reprogrammed to suit the user.
Unlike many keyboard and mouse combos, the mouse in this case is a laptop-style track pad on the side of the keyboard. Unfortunately, there are problems with the KeySonic that set it apart from its more expensive counterparts. News Reviews Insights TechRadar.
Overall, the KeySonic is a cheap, easy fix for anyone who needs a small compact keyboard for the living room environment for simple file and Web browsing. While power users will bemoan its cheap feel, it’s a real bargain for casual media players. I bet u could use it with ur right thumb.

It’s quite ef to see that Keysonic have included everything to get you up and running and haven’t even tried to cut costs by bundling in a set of cheap-o generic batteries.
Now I know which one to buy for my Media Centre Quote.
