Testing and Conclusion
Over the course of the past few weeks I have been using the Rapoo 8900P Advance Wireless Mouse and Keyboard Combo at work since this is an productivity setup. Which happened to work out good since my keyboard at work recently stopped working. To get the Rapoo 8900P Advance combo installed all you have to do is plug in the Nano Receiver than Windows 7 or 8 will auto recognize the combo. But you also have to make sure you have to make sure you install some batteries into the keyboard and also the mouse.Now that we have the batteries installed all we have to do is turn on the keyboard by flipping it over and moving it into the On position and also the same with the mouse. Lets test out every day usage on the 8900P Advance Wireless Mouse and Keyboard Combo.
One of the first things you will notice while using the Rapoo 8900P Advance Wireless keyboard is that it has a nice and sturdy build to it. This is thanks to them using brushed stainless steel aluminium for the top part of the keyboard. This also gives the keyboard a good weight to it so it won’t just slide around the desk with the added help of the rubber feet. Typing on the keyboard is about the same as a chiclet style laptop keyboard. It however does not flex when typing like a laptop keyboard does. The media keys at the top I was always forgetting they were there since they don’t light up until you touch the panel. Using the Rapoo 8900P keyboard for long periods of time I did not seem to cramp up at all or have other typing issues. Another one of the cool things is that the keyboard multimedia area gives you tactile and vibration feedback to let you know the buttons was pressed. Rapoo seems to put a good amount of time into the design of the keyboard. I haven’t had any issues to this day with any batteries running low but I have only used it for about a month, so only time will tell.
Using the w Rapoo 8900P Wireless mouse was just as simple as turning it on. Being able to switch between two different DPI profiles with the press of a button and also 4 way scroll wheel. One of the things I originally thought would be a good features I ended up not liking at all due to always hitting it. That was the Zoom bar which is next to the Left click button. I would have to stop doing what I was doing and fix the size and then start over, it turned out to be a pain. The forward and back buttons worked great with no issues. The overall tracking and response of the mouse was great for office usage and would only work out for some light gaming. Rapoo did a good job of making a nice keyboard and mouse combo which has an amazing build quality. I would really like to see some of the other products they will be releasing.
Currently you can find the Rapoo 8900P Advance Wireless Mouse and Keyboard Combo for around $100 at online retailers. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Rapoo 8900P Advanced Wireless Mouse & Keyboard Combo an 8 out of 10 score.
