Aurora Micro Wireless Keyboard Review

In the right situation this keyboard is absolutely a solid winner, and for my setup it solved a lot of issues I was having and let me take back control of my Windows Media Center (MCE) HTCP. I was able to work in the Windows Vista MCE environment, completely wireless and with precise accuracy and all within the confines of my lap; this included watching movies, playing games and surfing the internet. For those who are used to typing on a laptop you will find yourself inclined to feel that you are using that same type of keyboard and you will probably like the typing functionality of the Aurora.

I myself really was not all that interested in the keyboard aspect of the Aurora when I first began this review as I was more interested in the new Laser Trackball feature, but I have to admit the keys are smooth and very responsive to even light touch. Considering all the very cool things about the Aurora Wireless Mini keyboard, and its performance and control in the MCE environment, I am a very satisfied end user. . Logitech may make a few cool gaming mice, but the Aurora kicked my $79.00 Logitech system in its electronic crotch, and at the same price point it deserves and Editor's Choice Award. Good job on this Enermax, the Aurora Mini is a bit on the pricey side, but worth it if you don't want to hassle with ergonomics and functionality. Just a note though, this keyboard is geared and only fully functions within the Windows Vista OS environment, and even can turn on the PC by one of its hot keys, so keep that in mind when deciding on your purchase. That being said in the Vista MCE scenario this keyboard is totally cool.
