The Arteck 2.4G wireless keyboard was originally purchased by me to deal with a faulty laptop keyboard, but eventually it became my preferred way to type passwords, homework assignments, and more. The keyboard fits a surprising amount of functionality onto a relatively small board without sacrificing comfort or the quality of the keys. The board contains all the keys necessary for my daily work unless for some reason a numpad is necessary (which it often isn’t). The main complaints I have with this keyboard is with how the board deals with some aspects its small size; However, this small keyboard easily punches above its own weight compared to other budget keyboards for most people.
Arteck got a large amount of aspects of this keyboard right when it comes the shape and construction. The lightweight and sturdy body makes it light enough to use on the go and strong enough to endure being tossed around inside a backpack. Arteck managed to put a rechargeable battery in this device that in my experience can last up to one and a half months of daily use without recharge. Finally, the keys themselves have a travel time that feels better than my own laptop with a short to medium travel distance.
Arteck did make some decisions about the keyboard that puzzled me quite a bit. The first puzzling decision was the choice to use micro-USB to charge the device especially in the age of USB-C becoming more and more common. The charging cable itself is also rather short which can make charging the keyboard annoying if you are also working at the same desk. The keyboard packs in many functions using the function key system which I neither hate nor love. Function keys can get the job done but can also create key combos that require weird hand maneuvers (which can ruin your typing rhythm). Finally, a minor grievance is that the volume media buttons are in a reversed order.
As a whole package the Arteck keyboard provides a large amount of benefits for a miniscule amount of issues. The overall form and key construction are superior to most other keyboards I have tried. The long battery life makes using the keyboard daily a breeze. The only big issue I have with the keyboard must deal with how it is charged and luckily you should not have to charge it for multiple weeks on a single charge. I will give the Arteck Keyboard a 9/10 and a heavy recommendation.
FINAL SCORE: 9/10
- Good key travel distance and construction
- sturdy chassis
- long battery life(1+ Month before recharge)
- Micro-USB charging
- reversed media volume keys
- short included charging cable
I heavily recommend this product to anyone needing a wireless keyboard.
