Xebec Tech HTPC Bluetooth and Onyx Bluetooth keyboards review

By holding down the Fn key, the top row of keys serves as shortcuts for multimedia actions as well. For example “6” will start the DVD player application, “9-0” are the zoom/x-zoom buttons and so on. Of course these functions need to be supported by the device; there will not be a DVD player application if the HTPC Bluetooth is paired to a mobile phone, for example.

Three LED lights can be found at the left section of the keyboard. The top LED light is the CAPS lock indicator and the middle LED is the Fn key/Bluetooth pairing indicator. The lowest LED light is the low battery indicator and comes on when the batteries need replacing.

The back of the keyboard is made of soft, corona treated plastic which gives that "rubberized" feeling to the user. Xebec Tech has been paying attention to the details, as for example the grooves which keep the user’s fingers from sweating, improving the handler's comfort when using the keyboard for prolonged periods of time. There also are two buttons at the underside of the keyboard, situated at a position similar to that of the trigger buttons found on game controllers, which however function as mouse buttons.

At the top side of the keyboard one can find a tiny on/off switch with which the keyboard can be turned off in order to avoid draining the battery and accidental keystrokes.
