We can not say that Cherry has overstepped the mark when it comes to design: Stream Desktop Recharge is a prototype of sobriety, so it looks tough on a desk. The black keyboard is made of slightly beautiful plastic, not very aesthetic, but has the advantage of not retaining fingerprints. Note that there is a white version of the package, but it is necessary to return to the QWERTY setting of the keys.
Despite this “all plastic” construction we have to admit that the whole is very hard and no part is brittle, which is not the case with many competing models.
The keyboard is medium size (46.2 x 16.2 x 2.3 cm), the absence of the palm gives it width, which is detrimental to comfort. It’s not awkward, however, but its retractable foot allows it to lift at the back. These legs are particularly resistant to back.
Apart from these, there is a box for 8 non-slip pads and two rechargeable AAA batteries under the keyboard. They are definitely interchangeable during trouble, which in theory gives the keyboard a much longer service life.
The on / off button and the USB-C socket for recharging are located on the front edge, as well as the LED indicating that charging is going on when the cable is connected. Note that you can use both the keyboard and the mouse when recharging.
As for the keys, we don’t really dwell on them because the layout is classic. They are surprisingly well anchored in the switches, which is rare enough to be stressed. Above the number keyboard are some shortcuts (especially open browser, emails or calculator) and 6 multimedia keys on the top of the keyboard. Unfortunately, like most wireless models, there is no backlight.
On keyboard / mouse packs, the mouse is often overlooked in terms of design and function. Here, it is not so and cherry offers a mouse certainly relaxed, but decorated with some interesting elements.
It has 6 buttons: 2 key clicks, the wheel button and 2 buttons on the bottom left of the thumb. Indicates that the last button on the back of the wheel is an LED mouse charge. This button allows you to adjust the sensor sensitivity (1000, 1600 and 2400 dpi), which can be very useful for adjusting to different screen resolutions or to your preferences or current software. Unfortunately, you can not assign another function to different buttons on the mouse (or keyboard), Cherry only offers configuration software for its models. Sports.
The main left and right buttons are not generic: they do not release “clicks”, so they are silent. Your office neighborhood will thank you for it, but it also comes at a loss of implementation speed. So we do not recommend you to use this mouse Sports – This is not its primary function anyway.
At 11.6 x 6.4 x 3.8 cm with dimensions, this mouse is also medium sized, which allows for grip of the type Palm gripEven for big hands. Its weight is 115 grams on average and is very suitable for office automation.
By turning it on, we can see the sensor on / off button, the location of the rechargeable AA battery and the magnetic housing for the Cherry USB receiver. It allows you to connect a mouse and keyboard to a computer (PC or Mac).
Note that this tool is not Bluetooth Dongle So wireless connection is essential. Unfortunately, this receiver is associated with its original pack, so the loss is irreparable!
