The AURORA Micro Wireless, from Enermax, is a wireless compact keyboard featuring total media functionality. With integrated trackball, left-right buttons, and a scroll-wheel, this wireless compact keyboard is looking to be one of the best solutions for using media center and home theater software. This product won the prestigious “red dot design award: product design 2009″ against 11,000 submissions from 61 countries in 14 categories. With the sleek brushed aluminum look of the keyboard and the laptop feel to the keys, it is impressive right out of the box.


The Enermax Aurora Micro Wireless Keyboard is simply a great device, it has all the functionality of a full-sized keyboard plus all of the robust controls needed to operate within the  Windows Media Center environment in Windows 7. It has a very appealing aesthetic that will blend in to your home theater setup without skipping a beat.


We found the Enermax Aurora keyboard to be not only well built but easy to us due in part to the small foot print of the keyboard. The fact that the keyboard has both a mouse controls and a variable speed trackball. We really liked the feel of the keyboard in hand thanks to the great handles that have been molded using a simple redesign of the base of the keyboard. The tactile feel of the keyboard is very nice and we found it far easier to use than say a laptop keyboard. If you are looking for a keyboard to be used in you entertainment center this is the keyboard for you. It will match any decor and is tough enough to take a fall of an end table.


The Enermax keys have a near-standard layout, which is very good as little adaptation is required of the user.


Top-notch looks.
High-quality trackball.
Scroll wheel is an excellent addition.
Works out of the box with video game consoles like Playstation 3.
No extra software is needed to operate the multimedia and function keys.
You can feel and hear the keys being pressed.
Low battery indicator.


I myself really was not all that interested in the keyboard aspect of the Aurora when I first began this review as I was more interested in the new Laser Trackball feature, but I have to admit the keys are smooth and very responsive to even light touch. Considering all the very cool things about the Aurora Wireless Mini keyboard, and its performance and control in the MCE environment, I am a very satisfied end user. . Logitech may make a few cool gaming mice, but the Aurora kicked my $79.00 Logitech system in its electronic crotch, and at the same price point it deserves and Editor's Choice Award. Good job on this Enermax, the Aurora Mini is a bit on the pricey side, but worth it if you don't want to hassle with ergonomics and functionality.
