  • Perixx
    • Periboard 716 Wireless Ultra-Slim Keyboard with Touchpad (Debian 07-Jun-2012 on Production Model B)
      • (Raspbian Wheezy, 2012-12-16, Prod. Model B, Rev 2) Has the "sticky key" issue as reported by other users with other keyboards. Seems to be somewhat related to power when directly connected to the Pi. Using a 2A PS makes it MUCH better, but not completely fixed. When/if it happens again, unplugging and reinserting the USB dongle brings it back to normal. Did not try with powered USB hub.
    • PERIBOARD-502 wired keyboard inc built in touchpad (model B/Raspbian Wheezy)
    • Periduo-707 Plus (Wireless Keyboard and Mouse) works fine most of the time. Does suffer from dropouts and glitches though. Usual "drawing too much power from USB" problems show up as well - dropped key presses or constant autorepeats. These can be cured by pulling out and reinserting the dongle in the USB socket. The keyboard sometimes hangs after power on when used with my laptop - it seems to need 30 seconds of non-use before it works fine. Again, remove and insert the dongle cures it. Works fine vi my Benq monitor's USB Hub.

Problem USB Keyboards

Note that generally PS/2 keyboards with an USB adapter will not work directly on a Raspberry Pi port, due to the fact that PS/2 keyboards are designed for normal 5 V +-5% range, while USB keyboards must be designed to work with 4.4 Volt, and generally USB devices on the Raspberry Pi may receive less than 4.75 Volt. PS/2 + USB adapter keyboards might work behind a powered hub, which does provide the full 5.0 V. Some of these keyboards work when running the latest Raspbian, but not when using the overclocked XBMC version of Raspbmc, probably due to the overclocking drawing more power away from the rest of the support system devices.

  • A4 Tech
    • Model GL-6 USB Keyboard, 20 mA. Part of wireless keyboard/mouse bundle GL-6630 (GL-6 + G7-630 + RN-10B) - suffers from USB flakeyness. Even on a powered hub. No problems on other computers I have tested it with.
    • A4Tech 2.4G VTrack USB Mouse and Wireless Keyboard (7300N)- Keyboard suffers from missed keystrokes and "stuck" keys with and without USB hub.

Touchpad barely moves cursor around. Problems evidenced if plugged into USB hub, powered USB hub, or directly into one of the RasPi's USB ports. As for typing into a terminal window, sometimes characters never appear, usually the trackpad problems keep the terminal window from being in focus. Avoid this pain in the neck.
