Introduction

Today we’re reviewing the Leira Wireless Multi Touch Media Center Keyboard from Koribo. The Leira is designed to be used with a HTPC but you can obviously still use it with a normal desktop computer or even a laptop if you so wish.  The Leira features a whole range of media center controls and a touch pad to make your media center experience completely wire free. Let’s see how good the Koribo Leira is.

About Koribo

“At Koribo, we believe that the computer is a key entertainment component. Today’s computers entertain us in our home and office, when we go on vacations, and even when we’re on the road. The problem is that you can’t use an office computer and input devices in your living room or in your bedroom. If you can’t understand why, we bet your spouse, friends or family will tell you. This is where Koribo fits in. Our products will not only provide you with the best technology available; we bring you cutting edge design and lifestyle too! Don’t be shy with your mini wireless keyboard – place it on the living room table, it is beautiful! Wow your friends as you control your media applications with single clicks. Don’t hide the keyboard for your HTPC; Use a micro wireless keyboard and when you’re done – place it in the drawer with the rest of the remotes, it is the same size! But that’s not all; we’re not in the business of selling ornaments that don’t really work. Koribo was founded by expert engineers who wanted to harness technology to serve everyday people. We apply strict standards from the IT industry along with vast experience to provide you with the best lifestyle technology solution.”
