Alcatroz Jelly Bean A2000 Review

Introduction
Remove all the wire on Alcatroz Jelly Bean U2000 then you will have A2000 model. Yes, Jelly Bean A2000 has totally same keyboard minus the wire. Therefore, you still have all 96 unique rounded soft and silent keys. UV coated slim and low profile keys. Same 1200 CPI optical sensor for the mouse but different shape this round. Much slimmer too. How is the performance of these wireless keyboard and mouse combo? Stay with me to find out…

Package Content & Design
There are user manual, 2 AA batteries and 1 AAA batteries in the package this round.

Of course, you have Alcatroz Jelly Bean A2000 keyboard and mouse as well. Again, build quality is decent for this budget combo. Do take note that the keyboard has different layout than the usual one. Shorter too. Having the same lovely design. There are other colours to choose from – black, white/pink, white and white/green too.

4 anti-skid pads only at the bottom. Stable on normal use. No complaint here. No height adjust here but it’s good enough thanks to the bump there. You can keep the unified USB dongle behind keyboard (magnetic) or inside the mouse.

A slim small mouse indeed. Great for storage to carry around. Suitable for both hand. And have shiny surface as you can see.

On / off switch in the middle while optical sensor on the left of the mouse. Why not swap their location?

Performance Result
Jelly Bean A2000 keyboard performance is the same as U2000. As expected, key strokes are quiet. You won’t hear much noise unless you are hitting it really hard. Again, typing experience is good once you get used to the round keycaps. Learning curves is there since the insert, delete and direction keys are not in their usual location. Example, Ins and Del are on top right corner. And others in Fn mode near numpad. Direction keys are a lot smaller than usual.

Same like the keyboard, there is learning curve on the mouse as well due to slimmer than usual mouse. Optical performance is good. Working correctly on multiple surfaces including slightly shinny and reflective ones. Wireless range is working up to around 6m by the way.

Advantages

  • Low-profile & silent keys

Limitations

  • Keyboard layout needs time to adapt, mouse too
