  • Please recommend a RF keyboard+mouse kit

    Hey everybody, I'm looking for a wireless RF keyboard+mouse kit
    Is there any kit which will suit my needs:
    ---

    1. Regular keyboard - I want Ctrl, Alt, Insert, etc. multimedia keys are optional.

    2. Regular optical mouse - I wouldn't use it while driving, so I don't want a joystick or such.

    3. I want a switch to turn off the mouse (so it wouldn't annoy me and move the cursor while I'm driving the car) --- Problematic?

    4. No need to sync the mouse/keyboard every time the power is off --- Problematic?

    5. Good, reliable RF connection

    6. Works well in cooperation with a Lilliput touch screen

    7. Preferably black, and easily mountable. I would prefer to mount the keyboard below the passenger's seat, but I still don't know how

    Unless you just want a mouse you may try a keyboard with a trackball built in. (not a joy stick or thumb pad) I pickup on of ebay for about $25.00. I use IR instead of RF you just have to find a good place for the receiver.

      You should take a look at today's woot. $39 (+$5 SH) for a compact RF keyboard with a matching gyro mouse. No pad necessary -- you just wave it in the air.

        Damn, I missed the deal (Woot!)

        I don't want a trackball (don't like it) - I want a mouse + keyboard.

        Other suggestions please?

          try the gyration pro suite. (bit expensive but good) It's what I use for a keyboard. Don't actually use a mous I have a wired trackball in the ashtray. See Website below for pics

            Sorry for the late reply. Haven't been around for a while.

            The Gyration is WAY too expensive for me

            Is there any solution to fit my needs from Logitech, Microsoft, or similar companies?

                I use a BTC wireless mini keyboard that has a nice thumb joystick for mouse control, very happy with it as I know many others are which was why I bought it.

                    That'd be a Scorpius P20. I looked for a Scorpio P20 for about 5 minutes with no success before I figured it out.

                      Whoa, the Scorpius P20 does look very very nice!
                      I seriously consider getting one.

                      I like the BTC wireless too, but it only comes in white

                      Any other ideas?

                        You never said small so:
                        MX3100

                        1. All the keys + multimedia.

                        2. Laser mouse. 20X better than optical (so they say) I love mine, you can use it on any surface perfectly.

                        3. Can turn it on/off with a switch.

                        4. nope.

                        5. Fast RF. Works perfectly.

                        6. Yep it does.

                        7. Black and dark grey.

                            Humm... where is the switch to "disable" the mouse/keyboard?
                            On the mouse? on the receiver?

                            (I'm afaraid that the mouse will start moving when I put it in the glove apartment)

                              It's on the bottom of the mouse.
