Testing

To just test this against my usual setup with my G15 keyboard and Cooler Master mouse I thought would be a bit unfair, since the G15 is a full keyboard and well, the mouse isn't exactly a touch-pad. To be fair, I decided to also compare it to the setup used on my laptop, which is still isn't that fair since it also has a full keyboard, but does have a touch-pad to compare with. For testing, I felt that comfort using the keyboard and touch-pad, touch-pad speed and accuracy needed to be compared amongst different setups, as well as testing how far the wireless keyboard reaches. All tests are based on a scale of one to ten, with one being the least comfortable, least accurate, or slowest and ten being the most comfortable, accurate, or fastest. I also decided to test the distance the wireless range covers. Sadly I could not locate a tape measure any longer than 10 meters so I can only test for half the distance. For this test I hooked the PC up to a TV and tested how well it worked from a distance.

In terms of comfort, the keyboard felt a little clunky to me, probably because I'm used to a full keyboard. It took some getting used to, in order to be able to type like I can on my Logitech G15. Of course, a touch-pad can never contend with a mouse in terms of speed or accuracy, but compared to the Synaptics touch-pad included on my laptop, the touch-pad on the Rosewill keyboard held on pretty well. I also cannot complain about the wireless range, which seemed to go far enough for my purposes and when measured, it definitely went as far as 10 meters or about 33 feet. The media keys also were a nice inclusion and provided functionality similar to the G15 media keys, allowing me to control media on my PC from a distance.
