Matias FK418BTLB Overview

  • 1Description

The Backlit Wireless Aluminum Keyboard from Matias is made from aluminum and has a slim, lightweight design. With wireless Bluetooth connectivity, it's compatible with a wide variety of platforms including macOS, iOS, Windows, Android, and more. Additionally, it can be paired with up to four devices and switch between them with the press of a button. For your convenience, it has Mac-friendly function keys that can also operate normally if needed. Each key is backlit and adjustable in 10% increments; however, unlike most backlit keyboards, this one features a dedicated battery for backlighting. Should that battery run out, this keyboard can still operate via its main battery.

Brightness Control
Adjust the backlight in 10% increments by holding down the -/+ backlight key. You can also select a brightness level directly using the same shortcut key and pressing a number instead. e.g. 1 = 10%, 2 = 20%, etc.
Rechargeable 1-Year Battery Life for Bluetooth
This keyboard is built with a 1600mAh battery for up to one whole year of use on a single charge.
Second Dedicated Battery
For those who use backlighting frequently, Matias has installed a second 1400mAh battery just for that. If the backlighting battery runs out, the keyboard will still continue working off its own separate battery. This second battery is rated to last between one to two weeks between charges with normal use.
Pair up to Four Bluetooth Devices
This keyboard is compatible with a variety of platforms including Mac, iOS, Windows, and Android. Moreover, it can be paired with up to four devices and switch between them with the press of a button.
Mac Function Keys
With its built-in function keys, you'll have quick access for adjusting screen brightness, volume, accessing iTunes, and much more. You can also use the Fn key to revert the function keys back to their standard uses as needed.

    Matias FK418BTLB Reviews

    Backlit Wireless Aluminum Keyboard (Space Gray) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love this keyboard so badly... I tried really hard to love this keyboard... and theres a lot to like. The design matches up with Mac hardware nicely, the battery life is fantastic (as far as I experienced in my short time with it) and the backlit keys are something that Apple should have included with its own keyboards.  But... the most essential functionality of a keyboard is, well, the keys. I constantly find myself having to re-press keys after it failed to register the first time and subsequently subconsciously teaching myself to use more force when typing than I have had to do with any other keyboard in recent memory. Ive found that if I dont hit the key dead center with an abundance of force, I run the risk of a missed letter or command. It doesnt feel like a defect, it feels like a design and engineering oversight. When I compare the sensitivity of the keys to those of my MacBook Pro (2014) the difference is very clear and shows a lack of quality that I wouldnt expect from a standalone keyboard with a price tag of $135. That issue is more than enough reason for me to return the unit and continue my quest for the perfect keyboard that looks as good as it performs.
