Belkin's iPad 2- and third-gen-iPad-friendly YourType Folio + Keyboard case takes a solid if uninspired folio case design and adds a keyboard for one of the better protective solutions around.
RIM's new BlackBerry Mini Keyboard quickly converts a PlayBook tablet into a virtual laptop while adding protection and a lot of style.
Logitech's unique Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad 2 seems perfect for an executive desk, turning an iPad into a miniworkstation with eye-opening elegance. It's a shame the keyboard doesn't work as magnificently.
The Logitech Keyboard Case for the iPad 2 does exactly what it promises, offering a highly portable Bluetooth keyboard for use with an iPad; however, it's a better keyboard than it is a case.
The SteelSeries Merc Stealth gaming keyboard updates an already innovative design by adding lights and a USB hub. Though the design may not be for everyone, the Stealth Merc should satisfy gamers who want more than just a unique key layout.
The $100 Matias Folding Bluetooth keyboard would make a good sidekick for the Apple iPad and other portable computers; however, its unforgivable design missteps and an oversize footprint make it clumsy and awkward. You should pass this by and spend less to get the official Apple Wireless Keyboard.
We like the idea of an LCD touch screen, but the one on the Eclipse Wireless Litetouch keyboard has a laundry list of issues.
The Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate Silent is aesthetically minimal and truly designed for typing purists and keyboard snobs who have no need for key labels. If the lack of printed letters isn't enough, the $135 price tag will deter casual users who can find a cheaper input device with extra features elsewhere.
The PS3 Wireless Keypad is the best way to chat with friends and browse the Internet on the PlayStation 3.
The Logitech diNovo Mac Edition looks sexy and is comfortable for typing, but it's a pricey upgrade for a keyboard that lacks integrated USB ports and backlit keys.
The Xbox 360 Messenger Kit makes for the best text-entry option for chatting and messaging on the Xbox 360.
Microsoft's Wireless Media Desktop 1000 will provide you with a perfectly capable wireless mouse and keyboard for a more reasonable price than its competition. We just wish Microsoft would give more thought to the design and overall feel of its hardware.
The Kinesis Advantage Contoured Keyboard requires a significant investment of both money and time, but those who make the investment will be rewarded with a more comfortable typing experience.
Razer's Lycosa gaming keyboard has a lot of promise, and it mostly delivers, thanks to its solid feel, smooth typing, and powerful macro capabilities. We wish Razer had paid more attention to the LED lighting, but for strong touch-typing gamers, we think you'll like the Lycosa once you put your hands on it.
It's not as fancy as any of the higher-end multimedia input devices from Logitech or Microsoft, but we found the straightforward features of Trust's DS-3250 Optical Wireless Multimedia worthwhile and easy to use. And at less than $70, its price is right, too.
The Logitech Cordless MediaBoard for PlayStation 3 is currently one of the only Sony-certified--and totally compatible--cordless keyboards for the PS3, but it's really not a true PS3 keyboard.
If all you want is a backlit keyboard, Saitek's Eclipse II does that very well. We wish that Saitek had also refined the key feel and added a few other features. Aside from lighting up, it doesn't offer gamers much to get excited about.
The Celluon Laserkey CL800BT definitely has wow factor with its laser-projected keyboard, but it works with a only limited number of PDAs, and the lack of tactile keys may be a turnoff to some.
