Vidabox Premium Wireless Keyboard ReviewTheScavenger - October 19, 2008
The overall appearance of the Premium Wireless keyboard is pleasant, but plain. The black and grey color scheme is vaguely reminiscent of an older laptop keyboard. Regardless of aesthetics, the keyboard layout is practical and well thought-out. The key positions are similar to a laptop keyboard in their proximity to each other.
The feature that makes this Vidabox keyboard stand out from most other keyboards, is the integration of a laser trackball into the upper-right keyboard surface. In addition, left and right mouse buttons can be found in the upper left-hand corner. This particular arrangement of the trackball and buttons suggests that two hands are needed to fully operate the mouse. This 2000-dpi trackball is very sensitive, so consider turning down your mouse sensitivity.
After flipping over the keyboard, you can access the battery compartment. The underside of the keyboard also has rubber feet to prevent slipping.
In addition to the standard array of keyboard buttons, the Vidabox Premium Wireless keyboard has 11 hotkey buttons. From left to right, these buttons are: keyboard synchronization, Windows Media Center, volume mute, volume down, volume up, pause/play, stop, track back, track forward, Microsoft Outlook, and web browser.
While the lack of a traditional number pad seems evident you can press the numlock keyand the number pad is shown in the blue circles on the keyboard. The delete key is located next to the insert key on the bottom row of buttons in the traditional laptop keyboard location.
