EFO Bluetooth Handheld Keyboard and Mouse Touchpad Review

Reviewed by K.C. Kim

I have reviewed the EFO RF and Wired Keyboard/Mouse Touchpad before but this one comes with wireless Bluetooth. The main difference between this one is the Bluetooth that has a 33 Feet range which makes it perfect for sitting back on the couch and navigate your HTPC on your big screen TV.

This model is similar to the RF and Wired versions. It does have slightly different keyboard layout. The chicklet buttons are fine for typing out words to surf the net. The keyboard has a backlit so it works fine at night as well. The mouse functions remarkably well with a large touchpad and up and down scroll along with right/left mouse buttons.

The device comes with a Bluetooth dongle to connect with your PC. I simply connected the Bluetooth dongle. And then I click on the Bluetooth icon and selected "My device is setup and ready to be found" checkbox and then hit next. The computer will search for the device. I had to turn the on/off switch to find the device. It asks you to choose a passkey. I chose 1234 since you had to type it really fast and then click enter/arrow key. If you can't get Bluetooth to work the first time try to "Reset" the device using the bottom reset button. Once I got Bluetooth working it was much easier to connect the next time.

The EFO Bluetooth Handheld Keyboard and Mouse Touchpad is a perfect all in one keyboard, mouse, and remote for your HTPC. It is slim and works very well for its size. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to ditch the bulky keyboard and mouse for an all in on remote.
