AS-002 Micro Mini USB Keyboard is a USB mini-keyboard from CD-R King. It’s a local store in Philippines were you’ll find cheap computer and electronic utilities. That said, I was able to give it a try because I bought one for my laptop that seemed to be having problems with the keyboard.
At first, I was really excited. Because I thought it was cute and all. Of course, I was a fan of “cute things”. We were able to give it a test at CD-R King, SM Megamall to find out if the keys were working and it’s good all keys were fine. Then I tested it on my boyfriend’s net book. I had to wait because it installs really slow considering that it’s supposed to be plug and play. Microsoft is taking a long time looking for its drivers. Then finally gave it a go.
Typing is hard. I must admit, I have small fingers but it’s still hard because for one, the keys were arranged differently. Tab key doesn’t exist, it’s just a function and then lastly, functions do not work as they do with your laptop/netbook (you know how laptops have their functions right? And I use them most of the time)
Overall, it’s good if you’re on the go or with a broken laptop like me. Heehee. Unfortunately, our “broken laptop” won’t turn on. So I wasn’t able to test it there. My intention for buying it was to be able to use that old laptop. Oh well~
Price is 880 PHP or so (I can’t recall). For its price, it should be just 500 because really, you’ll end up not using it x) I would still prefer an original keyboard in the end. But it’s worth the try Handy when some keyboards are acting up.
