BTC Wireless Multimedia Keyboard Review

Bring comfort, style and wireless freedom to your desktop! This BTC Wireless Keyboard features 12 multimedia hot keys, and its comfortable design with low profile keycaps provides additional comfort and reduces keyboard noise to a minimum.

The BTC Wireless Multimedia Keyboard is the first keyboard I have ever used made by BTC. It was extremely inexpensive for a wireless multimedia keyboard, and I managed to buy one off of Amazon for less than ten dollars. It has a really thin, sleek black design, and the keys are low profile and easy to type with. The “media” portion of this keyboard consists of music controls, allowing you to skip ahead, back, pause, play or change the volume right on the keyboard. Really, I think that the multimedia label for this keyboard is a bit liberal, as besides these music keys the only other hot keys are for launching programs and applications. The keyboard connects via a USB receiver, and I have not had any issues with connectivity from about 8 feet away.

The low price and wireless functionality are great, but there are some downsides to this keyboard. The layout is slightly different from the traditional computer keyboard layout. For example, the arrow keys are dual purpose, doubling as the page up, page down, home, and end keys respectively. This does take some getting used to, as you will often use the key for the wrong function, but it doesn’t really hurt the functionality of the keyboard at all. Additionally, the right shift key is the size of a regular key, and is very easy to miss. I have often put apostrophes and numbers together when I thought I was writing an email address, or adding a dollar sign, but once again, this is simply a feature that takes a little getting used to.

The battery life with this keyboard is very good, lasting well over 5 months (the period of time that I have had this keyboard). The built in battery level indicator is a welcome feature, though I have not had a use for it as of yet. It will light up, alerting you to when the battery needs to be changed. The keyboard runs on two AA batteries, and the long battery life is in fact quite remarkable.

In short, this is a basic, no frills keyboard that is very inexpensive. It is high quality, standing up to the Logitech MK320 that I use the most, and fulfills the basic purposes of a keyboard. To call this keyboard a multimedia keyboard would be a gross overstatement, but for the price, this keyboard is well worth it.
