Fujitsu LX900

RH Numbers

The Fujitsu LX900 has all the features you'd associate with a higher-end keyboard. But other than 128-bit AES encryption and spill resistance, it doesn't exactly rock my boat. It just looks too square and has a fairly inexpensive appearance. To be fair though, it's an all-round decent keyboard and was one of the quieter models to tap away on. It's sponginess felt great and typing was better than my first impressions led me to believe it would be.

The hotkeys run along the top in the form of strip membrane buttons, which feels a bit tacky. There is a battery indicator though and it comes with a dinky dongle and decent mouse. Its rubber coated base feels lovely too, and while in deep thought between sentences, makes a great alternative to stroking one's chin hair.

HP Wireless Elite

RH Numbers

HP's Wireless Elite is a fairly smart-looking, full-length keyboard, with a matt finish and compact feel. It's very light, ultra thin and sits nicely on my desk without taking up huge amounts of room. The F keys double up as the hotkeys, but there's separate volume and mute buttons and although no indicator for battery life on the device itself, warnings do appear on-screen. When typing, the feel is definitely above average, with fairly flat nicely-shaped keys and the action isn't so plaquey. The keyboard is splashproof too and comes at a reasonable price.

The huge downside to this one though is the moderately large dongle. The annoying aspect is not the size, but rather a completely unnecessary blue LED, which lights up every time you hit a key. If it was tucked behind a desktop out of sight, it wouldn't make a difference, but in the line of sight, it's distracting and for all its plus points as keyboard, you soon grow weary of the blinking thing.
