The aesthetics of it are driving me nuts and the cord clutter is causing some minor issues.
As I would really like to make my setup a bit cleaner and more professional looking I was curious if anyone had suggestions for a wireless KB/M that works well with the pi. I would prefer to spend as little money as possible while still maintaining a base level of longevity and reliability (I've had expensive mice go out on me after <1 year of usage and I've had $10 walmart mice last me nearly 7 years) In addition to eliminating the cords for aesthetic reasons I also have some potential use cases where I would like to be able to sit across the room (8 feet/2.5m) while controlling my Pi.
Was actually looking at that exact keyboard and trying to decide between it and a slightly different one.
The K400 is great...have 2...but my fingers do poorly on the trackpad so I would go for a M325 mouse which would work with the "K400's "unifying receiver". There is a neat Linux utility for pairing things with the USB receivers called Solaar...there is another one as well but I don't recall the name. I use the K400 for quick and dirty hookups to RPi's but I pine for the look and feel of my ageing Logitech UltraX's (wired) which I use on my x86 boxes.alphanumeric wrote: ↑Sun Aug 04, 2019 11:37 amA Logitech K400 is what I use most of the time. The keys are a nice size for my knubby fingers and it has a built in trackpad where the number pad would be. This one goes from Pi to Pi a lot. I'm a trackball type of guy so I don't miss not having a mouse. I could link one of my M570's to its dongle if need be. If this keyboard actually ended up being permanently assigned to a particular Pi I likely would tie one of my M570's to it also for ease of use.
Energizer has a warranty against damage caused by leakage. You could try and file a claim with them.
I am using the same and can recommend it to get access to a RPi on site. It is small and handy.
