Trust Keyboard/Mouse

This Keyboard and Mouse set from Trust is sold as 'silent'. Like almost all keyboard/mouse sets these days they are 'wireless' so you have a far greater area available available to use them.

The keyboard is 44x13x1cm you can raise the back from 2cm to 3.5cm with the provided lift out step. The keyboard has 107 keys with the top line the function keys having a further 13 actions via a two button action. It is powered by two 'AAA' batteries already inserted and waiting to be activated by pulling out a short paper lead. There is an on/off switch just above the numeric keypad and to the left of the three LED's.

The keyboard is indeed silent in operation but the movement of the keys is quite large so you still know you have pressed them.

The mouse is 9.5cm from front to back and a maximum of 5cm wide towards the front, its a maximum of 3.5cm tall near the middle and has two push buttons and wheel in between. It has a single 'AAA' battery in the rear where there is also a small on/off switch but I found it turns itself off after a few minutes of not being used a touch of the wheel will wake it up. I found it quite responsive if a little smaller than most mice.

The initial setup involves placing the supplied USB dongle into a port on your PC and removing the paper battery saver from the keyboard and the mouse, a few seconds later you should be up and running.

For anyone trying to work in a room with other present then the silent keyboard will be much appreciated by them as the sound of a keyboard when others are doing other things can be quite off putting. Also anyone doing spreadsheet work will appreciate the separate numeric keypad.

A nice set at a good price.

At the time of publication this keyboard/mouse set from Trust is available from Amazon priced at £18.99
