Enermax Aurora

£52 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Enermax

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Fifty quid and upwards is a major outlay for a keyboard. For that sort of money you'll be expecting a pretty serious feature set.

Fifty quid and upwards is a major outlay for a keyboard. For that sort of money you'll be expecting a pretty serious feature set: media-centre functions, wireless, the lot.

The odd thing about the Enermax Aurora is that while it can't boast any particularly top-end functionality – it's got more ports than you'd expect, but that's about it – you don't feel short-changed in the least. This is a product with unmistakeable class.

It looks great for a start. The black aluminium finish is wonderfully elegant, set off by polished, unpainted edges around the keys and along the top. You've got no excuses for letting the keyboard lose its shine, since Enermax bundles a cleaning cloth with the product. The Aurora's slender body sits low on your desk, raised up to a comfortable angle by two rubber feet. These, along with the device's reassuring weight, keep it rock-steady amidst the most manic of typing frenzies.

The keys have a soothing, responsive action and make very little noise, adding to the overall air of understated quality. There are no specialist media keys, unfortunately, but the Aurora does boast audio and USB ports for your convenience.
