Pros: Keyboard has a small form factor (the size of a smartphone) and is light which made it easy to hold. The keyboard buttons were responsive as well.
Cons: The mouse functions were the fatal flaw. It works OK most of the time but the frustration when trying to actually use the precision of the mouse cursor is what made it not useable for me.
When trying to make the small careful movements needed to place the cursor in the middle of a word (i.e. between two letter) like if I accidentally capitalized the fist letter of a word, it was very frustrating to use. I plan on giving a Raspberry Pi with one of these keyboards to my parents and I think they would not use the Raspberry Pi at all if the Air Mouse keyboard was their only option.
I bought a keyboard with a track pad (a VisionTek Candyboard) in the same order to try out both. While the track pad is not perfect, it is much easier to use. I plan on exchanging for the VisionTek and would not recommend this product unless improvements are made to the mouse control.
Other Thoughts: I guess if you only wanted a small keyboard, this could work for that purpose.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The antenna works well by itself, meaning the antenna attached directly to the Wifi card (not using the extender cable/magnetic base). I found with no antenna attached at all, the strongest signal was -95 dbm, with the antenna that came with my wifi card (2 dBi) that signal was -58 dBm. I tried the Rosewill antenna with the extender cable and the signal dropped to -75 dBm. With the Rosewill antenna attached directly to the wifi card, the signal went up to -52 dBm (the best).
The Rosewill antenna does have an elbow joint to change the angle of the antenna.
Cons: I found that the extender cable had too much loss in it, and made my situation worse.
Other Thoughts: My current setup has a USB extension cable attached to my Edimax Wifi card with the Rosewill antenna attached directly to that card. I used the free tool "inSSIDer" to do my measurements, I would strongly recommend it.
I will buy the Rosewill antenna with out the cable in the future, and save some money too.
This review is from: Aluratek ADPF07NF 7" 480 x 234 Digital Photo Frame
Pros: Worked right out of the box. For the money, this works just fine. The pictures look good (don't expect HD), the device uses about 6 watts of energy, and I can have pictures running off of a USB Thumb drive as well.
Cons: None, for this price range.
Other Thoughts: Note no memory card is included so you'll need oneREAD FULL REVIEW
