Enermax Aurora Lite Keyboard Review
Published: 5th January 2012 | Source: Enermax | Price: |
The packaging is fairly simple, just showing the keyboard off which is as much as can be done.
Whereas the Acrylux was a piano black affair, the Aurora has the same basic design but with a very classy brushed aluminium finish. This certainly looks like it should cost much more than the £30 asking price.
As well as getting the keyboard the only accessory in the package is the biggest cleaning cloth we've ever seen. It's so large it can double as a dust guard for the keyboard. A nice touch that doesn't raise the price.
At either end of the very low-profile design we have a USB 2.0 port which is always handy. The Aurora only uses a single USB to draw power, so you probably couldn't run anything mental off of it, but for just sticking a USB stick in it's more than enough.
The Aurora is a very attractive looking keyboard. We have the fairly standard short left-shift key, but otherwise the left hand side of the Aurora is exactly what you'd expect.
Something that varies wildly between different designs is the right-shift/Return/backspace sizing. Thankfully the Aurora has what we'd consider to be the "norm" for UK layouts, so it's easy to get right up to speed with it.
