Enermax is one of the most famous power supply manufacturers, but what most people don’t know is that they also manufacture high-end keyboards. Today we are going to take a look at their new Aurora Micro Wireless, a small wireless aluminum keyboard with an embedded laser trackball, scroll wheel and multimedia buttons, targeted to home theater PCs (HTPCs) and video game consoles like the Playstation 3. Let’s see if this keyboard is a really good product or not.

Besides Aurora Micro Wireless, Enermax also has other high-end keyboards: Aurora Micro, which has the same size of Aurora Micro Wireless but isn’t a wireless product and doesn’t come with the embedded laser trackball but has two USB 2.0 ports; Aurora Premium, which is an aluminum standard-sized keyboard; and Caesar, which is an aluminum standard-sized keyboard with a more aggressive looks with the addition of a mesh.

Aurora Micro Wireless is available in black (KB008W-B) and silver (KB008W-S) and we reviewed the black version.
