Xebec Tech HTPC Mini Bluetooth Keyboard Review

Rating: 8.0.

At the beginning of this year we reviewed the Xebec Tech HTPC Mini Wireless Keyboard, today we are looking at the new Xebec Tech HTPC Mini Bluetooth keyboard. If you have a media center in your living room you have probably been looking for that perfect combination of wireless keyboard and mouse … because for many media applications a TV remote just doesn’t cut it.

There are a few other media solutions available today, including the Xebec Tech iTouchpad Diamond Series. Unlike many other models on the market today however, the Xebec Tech HTPC Mini Bluetooth Keyboard uses a Bluetooth connection, not a 2.4 GHz wireless connection.

There are several advantages with Bluetooth, including better range and less interference problems to deal with. Obviously the system needs a Bluetooth receiver installed but this is commonplace today with a media system build.
