Satechi Aluminum Bluetooth Keyboard REVIEWS

In order to work productively, I think it’s important to enjoy using the equipment you’re working with. My main equipment ends up being my laptop and its accessories external monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I’m extraordinarily picky about the keyboard I use. I really enjoy the butterfly switches that are a part of the Apple MacBook Pro keyboard, but I also enjoy a standard mechanical switch on an external keyboard. The only issue I really have with mechanical keyboards is that they are bulky. I have a compact desk environment and so I need compact equipment to match it. I recently started using the Aluminum Bluetooth Keyboard for Mac by Satechi, which is one of my favorite accessory companies. They do a great job of making products that are complementary to Apple products and that makes it easier for me to enjoy them.

USER EXPERIENCE

I’ve not had any problems using the keyboard. It’s stayed connected as long as I’ve been using it. The only time I’ve had an issue was when the keyboard was low on battery power. When that happens sometimes I started getting double keystrokes when I only made one. I found that if I kept the keyboard plugged into power, then I stopped having issues. Even though this sort of defeats the purpose of it being a wireless keyboard, I preferred having the keyboard connected to a wire rather than losing a connection while I was in the middle of an assignment.

As I mentioned before, Satechi does a really nice job of creating accessories that match Apple products well. I got the Space Gray version of the keyboard and it matches my Space Gray MacBook Pro perfectly. The keyboard looks really slick sitting next to it on my desk.
