Wireless keyboards, mice, Wi-Fi, cameras and other interesting peripherals....
Examples = we use the following in our office for testing:
    Logitech Wireless Keyboard K330

Help the users pick devices by adding to this list

I've added a page on the eLinux wiki for Parallella_VerifiedPeripherals. It would be great if as well as posting here people could add notes there, and perhaps also adding sub-sections for peripherals that have been confirmed to not work.

Cheers,

Andrew

You might also want to add a sub-section for HDMI and Ethernet too, I've bought a Duronic HDMI switcher (and cables) along with a Netgear 1000 Mbps Switch (and cables) in preparation so far,
only another ~3,300 backers in front of me, sigh.

Done!

I've also added a few notes to the wiki page, and set this thread as sticky so it's easier to find. If we could announce/discuss here and keep the wiki updated with a canonical list.

It seems that almost all the USB peripheral drivers are disabled by default.
We have to rebuild the kernel to enable various drivers.

I've tested a USB keyboard, Gear Head KB3700TP.

This is a keyboard and touchpad combination.

Works fine.

I will probably mainly be accessing the Parallella via ethernet, and a window on my laptop,
but to bring it up and do initial configuration I am using two directly USB connected devices :

Keyboard : Genius KB-06XE : Desktop Keyboard with Palm Rest, from Maplin
Mouse : Maplin Wired BlueTrace Mouse
These are connected via a (very old) passive USB 4 way hub, and work fine.

I first tried the following wireless setup, and it did not seem to work, but works fine when I try it now :

Cerulian Technology : J69JX Mini Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Deskset, from Maplin.

This uses a common wireless dongle, and being so neat is great for travelling with these small credit card boards, for demonstrations at meetings.
I will put these on the wiki.

My Parallella is running well. Did not expect that. I am Using Logitech K120 Keyboard and Logitech Mini Mouse M-UAE55 together with an unpowered Hama Easy Line Card Reader with USB Hub. SD cards do not seem to be recognized by the card reader but the usb-hub functionality works. I need to plug off the hub while booting. I use the power supply from the Parallella Accessory Kit together with an adapter for german plug socket.

Today i tested another usb-hub (inmac USB 2.0 HUB 4 port) and i just have bought a used monitor (Hanns G HG216D) that works fine with the parallella board connected over the hdmi cable provided with the accessory kit. Before that i connected the parallella to my television (Funai T800M) which was horrible because the tv only accepted full-hd-resolution even so it is just an hd-ready-tv with an resolution 1366x766. So i just could see the center part of the desktop. Pretty annoying. When i changed the resolution (i tested nearly all!) in the preferences the tv always went black and gave the warning that the display format isn't supported. That meant a lot of rebooting. A bigger reset button on the parallella board would be nice ;) !
