Trust LYRA Wireless/Bluetooth Keyboard & Mouse 

Image of author
This set is a little different, it can be Wireless or Bluetooth and does not need any batteries, it can be connected to up to three devices, the mouse is small and the keyboard even smaller. While the alpha and numeric keys are full size the other keys are small and the top row and function are on a rotation basis so don't lose the User Guide or you will be scratching your head for a while.

The mouse is 10.5x6x2.5cm and weighs only 66grams. The Keyboard is 28x12.5x1.5cm the last measurement is at the back at the front it is only .8cm. The keyboard has 82 keys but as the top line doubles up it could be 96 as actions vary. The keyboard can be set for iOS, Windows, Android or macOS.

Like so many User Guides today it’s all in illustrations and the keys you press to get to certain scenarios even smaller it took me a while to work out how to get to Alt Print Screen for screen capture.

There is only one LED and even that has different colours for different things.

The internal battery for the keyboard is charged very occasionally (stated to last up to six months between charges) by the supplied USB to USB 'C' in the back of the top of the keyboard.

I used this set mainly via Wi-Fi the dongle is found in the underside of the mouse where batteries normally fit. Just plug it in to a USB port on the PC and providing you have moved the small slider on the back of the keyboard and underside of the mouse they are both recognised almost at once.

Apart from the rotation on the top line there are six other keys that do more than two things and getting used to the keypresses required does take a bit of getting used to but they are not things that you are likely to use that often and providing you have either 20:20 vision or a magnifying glass the User Guide is clear enough in how you get them on the screen.

As I have a normal full size keyboard on my other PC then I do have the odd word to say to myself when switching between the two.

I have made a lot of the differences but for normal typing of documents there is no difference between this and any other keyboard. Using the normal functions of a mouse is no different.

At the time of publication the Trust LYRA Keyboard and Mouse set is available from Amazon priced at £44.99.
