Back to School with Washable Mouse and Keyboard: Unotron Review

Friday, August 20, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I often have a drink or a snack right next to my keyboard. Coffee, soda, the occasional glass of red wine. Crackers, fruit, chocolate. You get the picture. And while I have not drowned my PC yet, I have had a couple of spills. No red wine stains on the carpet - yet!

Cleaning the PC and its related accessories is a chore I do not enjoy. I've tried those air sprays that are supposed to get the dust and crumbs out. They do work but I never feel something is well cleaned if I cannot dunk it in soap and warm water.

Now I can take my keyboard and mouse to the kitchen sink and wash them to my heart's content! Yes, thanks to Unotron, my PC accessories have never been as clean. I received Unotron's corded keyboard and an optical mouse.

Both products use patented SpillSeal® Technology, providing protection from dust and liquids. Should you be curious about the tech stuff, Unotron uses "laser welding technology to create hermetically sealed casing". The keyboard I received also has antimicrobial protection. The three-button optical mouse is the first washable mouse to incorporate a removable scroll wheel. That needs to be taken out before washing the mouse. Both products came with an extension cord, and can be plugged in an USB port as well as in the spots traditionally reserved for a mouse and keyboard on the back of my PC.

In addition to being so happy to be able to wipe and wash them, I enjoy using them. The mouse has a good solid feel in my hand, and the buttons click softly. The keyboard does not make my fingers ache from typing - again, soft clicks, and comfortable. It has a removable wrist support - another plus in the comfort area.

Oh, and since the keyboard is washable, it would not stick and fizzle if I spilled my cappuccino all over it. Or my red wine. And the kids' sticky little fingers are no longer a threat. I'll still make them wash their hands  though.

In case you are wondering what you can clean the Unotron mouse and keyboard with, the answer is pretty much anything: soap, bleach, disinfectant, antibacterial cleaners, washing-up liquid, non-abrasive cleaners, general purpose cleaners, and surgical spirit. Water temperature should be under 176 F. That is, please do not boil the equipment!

Unotron products would be great for kids, college students, and adults. In case you prefer a cordless keyboard and mouse - personally, I can never get around the battery issue - Unotron has those, too.
