AC Ryan Wireless Mini Keyboard Touchpad $19+Shipping

41

Was shopping for a new remote for my HTPC and came across this highly recommended if not the best mini keyboard/touchpad.
All other places have it for $55 and up at the moment.

Mod: This is not Bluetooth.

    I have the Rii Mini I bought years ago for about $55, it's essentially the same as this one although mine has a laser pointer on the side, not sure if this does. Anyway I'm here to say these things are really handy for the occasions you need them, for $19 this is a steal if you have a need for it.

    Can these pair up with Android devices like phones?

    •  

      probably not phones.

      Potentially, if it has USB host mode and you plug in the dongle. Not what you want on a phone, but maybe a tablet.
      Definitely one of those Android HMDI dongles.

      Wireless is better than RF.

      •  

        What exactly is the difference between wireless and RF? Wireless can mean anything

        •  

          RF is a type of wireless. The most common types are RF and IR.
          RF is generally better. In fact the word wireless and the RF are virtually interchangeable most of the time - since the days of sitting round the wireless (RF = radio frequency = radio)

      •  

        rofl that is one of the most awesome quotes in history
        wireless generally means RF, unless it is light (IR/Laser) Based
        WiFi is RF, Bluetooth is RF, logitech unified remote is RF, mobile phones are RF, cordless phones are RF, TV transmission is RF
        Priceless

      It doesnt that one is better, for keyboard funtionality.

      The item listed here is a good keyboard, but nothing like a dinovo mini

    •  

      RF and bluetooth are effectively the same on this if using a PC. Same keyboard, same operating distance. The wireless protocol being used makes no practical difference.

      However, I have a BT one and it always needs repairing after sleep mode. Which happens after 10 mins of inactivity. Ie: constantly. It makes it utterly useless.

      I might buy the RF one hopefully it works a heck of a lot better.

      However, the RF one isnt going to work on anything other than a pc with a supported operating system.

      PS: I've owned the dinovo mini and its much much worse. The key layout on it is utterly illogical. Just try alt-f4'ing on it, lol. It's an incredibly poorly thought out piece of crap.

    If it's not bluetooth, does anybody know if it comes with a RF USB dongle for it to pair with?

    i received mine just this morning. it was purchased from ebay, under $15 delivered.

  •  

    I personally brought the Noontec Version (which is RF), very straight forward product.

    Comes with Dongle (that is packaged in the keyboard, eg slide out), plug and play after 1 touch (left mouse click on keyboard to turn the link on).

    If you do get one do the following otherwise it will show up as an error Vista +:
    Charge device for around 1-2 hours minimum
    Plug dongle in wait about a minute
    Switch keyboard on

    The link automatically cuts off after about 5-10 mins but is re-established by a left click
