HTPC keyboard with trackball.. £9.99p

MADTheOgster (Elite Donator) posted this on Saturday, 24th March 2012, 09:41

just a heads up as i know quite a few of you guys have mini pc`s,  & Maplin are doing one that i think is very very good for the money,  imo, far better than the other ones i`ve had in the past, (& i`ve had about half a dozen lol & all of them £25 +)

only niggle is it`s an american layout, all the buttons are there, but the " & @ keys are reversed, & the £ keys has the hash symbol on it,  but the keyboard itself is excellent, & the trackball is the best i`ve used, very sensitive, & responsive, unlike most of the smaller ones that seem to stick/lag a bit..

& since i was planing on getting one at £30, i`m gonna get another one of these next week, as a spare/for the downstairs pc.

honestly dont know if it`s an affiliate link,  i just copied & pasted both the link from HUKD & the direct Maplin link.

yeah,  i know what you mean,  dont really like them myself due to past issues...  BUT..  i really do rate this keyboard,  if i`d paid £25 for it i would have still been happy with it.   it`s really hard to find this type of keyboard with a decent trackball.

Bought 3 yesterday, one for me, one each for two friends I owe favours and just fired up mine.
Seems responsive enough but the trackball is ridiculous, very small and hyper sensitive, had to turn the mouse speed right down to use it to the point my desktop mouse (it`s on the same machine) is almost unusable!

Still, for a tenner it`s pretty decent ;)

Re= the trackball, tbh, thats what I like about it lol :) I allways use the max res the screen can handle, & I hate slow trackballs,

It would be great though if it was bigger, it`s not the speed it`s the tiny size of the ball itself.

Imagine using that to play Centipede if it was a decent size with that kind of speed response ;)

And as the message I sent to Ogs earlier confirmed, nice to see this works well with the PS3 too :D

i`m seriously gutted i couldnt afford to buy a few of these while they had stock :(  i know you didnt much like the sensitivity of the trackball, but for me thats the biggest plus point, so hard to find one of these types of keyboards with good, fast trackballs...
