Cherry, known for their popular Cherry MX key switches, has announced the release of their new mini low-profile wireless keyboard, featuring both 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth. If you want a compact keyboard that’s as comfortable to use as a full-size one, the KW 9200 MINI is the ideal choice. The KW 9200 MINI fits into any bag, no matter how small, when being taken from one place to another. At the same time, this little gem comes with a protective carrying case made of recycled plastic.
Smart Functions For More Productivity
If you think the compact, minimalist design means you’ll have to do without the advantages of a full-size keyboard, you couldn’t be more wrong. The little all-rounder has plenty of useful functions up its sleeve. For example, you can access special functions such as picture or volume control by pressing the FN key. Multimedia functions such as play/pause and track selection haven’t been forgotten either. If you want constant access to the special functions, simply press to lock on the FN key.
The integrated battery status display is extremely useful in everyday work. The wireless mini keyboard flashes its LEDs to indicate in good time when the lithium battery needs charging. The status LEDs integrated into the keys are also extremely useful in everyday work. They indicate when the shift key or the FN lock key is activated. This makes annoying searching for active functions a thing of the past.
The Recipe For Success – The CHERRY SX Scissor Mechanism
Good typing characteristics are crucial for any keyboard. The CHERRY SX scissor action makes typing on the compact wireless keyboard a special highlight. The laptop-style keys are slightly concave, so your fingers find their way around them without you having to look. CHERRY’s proprietary SX scissor technology provides a very quiet, precise typing experience and lets you glide your fingers effortlessly across the keys.
Minimalist Look With Ergonomic Benefits
The KW 9200 MINI may be small – but it’s still a full-fledged premium keyboard. Of course, it’s ideally suited for mobile use, but it also plays fully to its strengths on your work desk. Thanks to its compact dimensions, it takes up very little space to help you keep your desk nice and tidy. This even has ergonomic advantages: Compared to standard-sized keyboards, your mouse arm is closer to the keyboard. This automatically leads to a better shoulder posture and can counteract tension.
The KW 9200 MINI is a perfect example of how design and function can complement each other perfectly. The wireless keyboard makes your desk look tidier and is 100% in keeping with the spirit of the times. The combination of ultra-slim dimensions and keys with a discreet red background looks elegant and modern at the same time. The minimalist design philosophy behind it extends to the packaging, which contains no plastic and is kept as small as possible.
Compatibility – A Real All-Rounder
There are virtually no limits when it comes to connecting the Cherry KW 9200 MINI to an end device. Thanks to its multi-device capability, the keyboard can be connected to up to four different end devices simultaneously via different channels. Using the F1-F4 keys, you can easily switch between the connection modes and control the desired device.
Two channels are available in Bluetooth mode. Whether with a desktop PC, laptop or tablet – the KW 9200 MINI works with practically any device that supports Bluetooth. For example, you can operate your laptop via the first Bluetooth channel and in a matter of seconds switch to your tablet on the second Bluetooth channel. For RF mode, simply plug the included nano receiver into a free USB port on your PC. Press F1 and you are directly connected.
The included cable with USB-A/USB-C connector is not just for charging the integrated battery: Select cable mode on F4 to activate data transfer via the cable as well. It’s perfect for environments where wireless transmission is not wanted. The mini keyboard is also very economical even in RF or Bluetooth mode. One battery charge lets you work for weeks without recharging. Of course, you can carry on using the keyboard while it’s charging.
