Unboxing Lexking Sirius Keyboard 無線藍牙鍵盤開箱/試用文

In the beginning: I purchased and wrote an article on Lexking bluetooth keyboard. The manufacture found it, and invited me to write a review on their new product. A free sample is received.

緣起:零北寫過一篇Lexking藍牙鍵盤的開箱文,被廠商看到了,於是邀請我再為他們的新產品寫一篇開箱文。零北有收到一份免費測試用樣品。


The Usual Suspects:

In a nutshell: The Wrong Way/收納圖:錯誤的示範
The support should be stored the other way around, with the smooth rounded edge outward. If stored the way shown in the picture, the support might be stuck at the edge when you try to take it out. The micro USB wire, which I normally leave behind unless overnight, is for charging the Lithium Ion battery.
支架應該反過來放:圓滑的邊角一端朝外。圖中的支架的方向在取出時可能會碰上女神(卡卡)。Micro USB 線是給鋰電池充電用的。除非要過夜,否則我不會帶出門。

超級比一比/Compared with the "old" standard size keyboard and a standard size business card:
Though slightly smaller, the size doesn't matter. Rather, it is the slightly different positioning requires a little bit of getting used to.  This is the price paid for folding keyboard in half. BTW, this hotel is a horrible place. DO NOT stay there, not even in the NEIGHBOURHOOD. The name Thanh Liem is stolen from a credible establishment. Stay AWAY from 217 De Tham block.

然稍微了一點點,但是需要習慣的不是大小,而是稍微不同的鍵位。這是折疊鍵盤的代價。順帶一提:這家旅館很爛,千萬別去。Thanh Liem 其實很出名,但這家是山寨。離 217 De Tham 那小區遠一點。

Compared with Kohjinsha SH/再來比一比:工人舍 SH
Size does matter now: it is much more comfortable than Kohjinsha alone, due to improved "fat finger" factor.
這裡大小就有差了:遠比工人舍的鍵盤好用。零北的手指舞卡粗勇啦!(謎之音:有需要比中指給你看來證明嗎?)

他馬的「中國大陸」進化到「中國製造」,不知道是看到了零北的幹醮,還是老闆自己開了竅,終於有了國際觀:

Compared with a standard business card, folded/折疊後跟名片比:
非廣告:打狗文史再興會社對打狗文化的貢獻高雄打狗市文化局多多了。

Smaller than 3 business cards when folded/折疊後,比張名片


The verdict: Recommended (duh...)
結論:(當然是)推薦。

Reasoning:
  1. From manufacture's point of view: A keyboard is a keyboard is a keyboard is a keyboard. This product does what a keyboard does, and fulfilled all of its requirements, response, touch, comfort, accuracy included.
  2. From a consumer's point of view: It is perfect if you type only in roman alphabets. For Chinese input,  when using Android, you still need to touch the screen if the computer's guessing is not good enough. This occurs mostly when quoting ancient Chinese or proper names. This is a limitation of Android devices, not the fault of this keyboard.  The input method tested is Google Pinyin. Getting used to its deviation from standard keyboard is a reasonable price paid for improved potability. Should you disagree, Lexking also have a standard size bluetooth keyboard available.
  3. Icing on the Cake: Yes, you can use this keyboard as a remote. This is particular useful if your computer is linked, say... an HDMI cord, to your display.
  4. Pour votre santé: Using a detached keyboard much for your health when using a notebook computer, for ergonomics sake. Please review the video clip below.
  5. Compared with Asus Transformer: In addition to ergonomics, you also get to keep your keyboard when retiring your tablet. The keyboard of a Transformer cannot be used as a remote for the tablet.  An Asus Transformer keyboard also costs almost twice much as Sirius. Do you really need (roughly) 16 hours straight of juice on your tablet/notebook?
  6. One Keyboard, Fits all: (almost) all of your bluetooth capable devices that is. In my case, two cell phones, two computers, and one tablet. Worth every penny.
藉口原因:
  1. 從廠商的角度出發:啊~鍵盤就是鍵盤,啊不然你還要怎樣啦?啊不過就是觸感、反應、正確性?啊~這就是個中規中矩的鍵盤啦!
  2. 從消費者的角度出發:用按桌椅時,如果只打羅馬字,那就很完美。但是如果要打漢字,就可能要常用到觸控螢幕,尤其打文言文、人名時。這是按桌椅的問題,不是鍵盤的錯。零北用的是孤狗拼音輸入法。不完全標準的鍵盤是方便攜帶的合理代價。如果您不同意,Lexking 也有賣標準大小的藍牙鍵盤
  3. 意外好康:可以拿來當遙控。比方說:將電腦用HDMI線連到大螢幕時。
  4. 健....................................................... 康:用筆電時,使用分離鍵盤比較符合人體工學、比較健康。請參考下面的短片。
  5. 超級比一比之變形金剛篇:除了人體工學外,換平板時不用換鍵盤,還有遙控外。變形金剛的鍵盤要三千耶... 你的筆電/平板真的需要(大約)16小時的續航力嗎?
  6. 一盤打盡:(幾乎)打遍天下藍牙手。對零北來說,那是兩隻手機、兩臺筆電、一鍋平板。反正零北一次只用一鍋,值啊...
