Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

I think this has to be, hands down, one of the worst keyboards I've ever laid my hands upon. However, the price does reflect that. The keys are horribly shaped and ooze tack, matched by the not so great typing experience that also generates a fair amount of noise. The hotkeys even wobble when tapping the main keyboard and the fact that some of them – such as the e-mail client key – didn't even work, doesn't bode well.

The huge chunk of plastic that acts as the receiver box is as big as the mouse and totally unnecessary in this day and age. I hardly have anything positive to say, except there is a battery indicator and for the small price of £15 you get a mouse thrown in. I suppose sometimes when you urgently need a keyboard that will only be used once, then it has a purpose.

Now here's something worth talking typing about, a keyboard that runs on solar power. So now I can be green-fingered without the requisite gardening skills and it's a fantastic keyboard too. OK, so it does have calculator-like characteristics, but it feels great to type on. I do like a good chiclet, and this is a quiet one, with a thin, but durable body.

There's an on/off switch to conserve power, with both the internal rechargeable battery and light levels checkable through an on-screen app. There's also 128-bit AES encryption to keep your pinkies' patter ultra-safe.

Not everything is peachy though - the body is a serious fingerprint magnet. It may come with a cloth for wiping the dirt off, but why anyone would make keyboards with gloss-black bodies, I'll never know. Other than that, and the fact the FN key is to the right of the spacebar, it ticks every box for me and the price isn't too steep for what you get - a quality keyboard with the bonus of never needing to change the batteries.
