Good: Very simple to setup and start using. You just plug in the dongle to the USB port of your receiving device like a computer or in my case a FireTV. I plugged in the dongle, turned on the keyboard, and it just worked no syncing or setup processes it just worked.
Good: It has a full keyboard which makes it extremely easy to input text for searches and long web address. I like this for Kodi because if you are trying to install add-ons this makes it very easy to input the addresses needed to access those sources.
Good: It has a touchpad and this is vital because the keyboard works as both a keyboard and a mouse. If you are using this like I am with a streaming box (The FireTV in my case) and you want to sideload apps you will need a mouse for many of them to work properly and the Aerb Mini Wireless Keyboard with Touchpad will give you that mouse functionality and get those apps working properly.
Good: The Keyboard comes with a rechargeable battery installed and to charge the battery you just have to plug in the included micro USB cable.
Good: Inside the battery compartment there is a storage space for the USB dongle. So if you need to take the keyboard and the dongle somewhere you have a safe place to store the dongle so it doesn’t get lost in transport.
Bad: The keyboard has to use a USB dongle. This is a problem because it means you can’t use it with some computers or other devices. For instance, the current MacBook no longer has a traditional USB port on it and only has a USB C port. Also if your device only has one USB port then you can’t use the keyboard and another USB peripheral at the same time. This has been a problem for me with the FireTV. I have to swap out a thumb-drive I often use and plug in the keyboard dongle.
I would say this is a cool little keyboard which is more than just a keyboard its also a wireless mouse an in a lot of ways a remote control. If you have a streaming TV box that has a USB port on it then a keyboard like this a big plus. I would definitely recommend the Aerb Mini Wireless Keyboard with Touchpad its simple to setup and use and makes many task much easier. The one downside is that you have to use the dongle. I wish this keyboard was Bluetooth because it would open up the possibility to use it with many other devices and use it in conjunction with other accessories. However, I like it and will continue to use it.
