Vidabox Premium Wireless Keyboard with Laser Trackball Review

by The Review CrewMay 30, 2010

If you’ve shelled out for a home theater PC, don’t try to get by with a standard keyboard and mouse. The Vidabox Premium Wireless Keyboard with Laser Trackball gives you a small but attractive and full-featured input device. Above the main typing area, a row of multimedia keys provides convenient control of movies and music.

The trackball, though super-small, lets you move the cursor effortlessly, and two buttons provide full mouse capabilities. The wireless, which has a range of 30 feet, doesn’t require a line-of-sight connection and works well, for the most part. In an environment full of wireless devices, though, you’ll want to resync the keyboard from time to time to minimize wireless hiccups. Of course, since this is a compact keyboard (0.97 inches high by 12.83 inches wide by 5.04 inches deep and 1.13 pounds), you’ll have to make some adjustments: There’s no dedicated number pad, and the slightly cramped keys (some of which are in non-standard locations) along with the trackball take some getting used to.

This input device doesn’t match high-end HTPC keyboards like the diNovo Edge, but it will suit couch potatoes who don’t type much.
