“Hello Telikin Staff,
I am a 79 year (old-young) lady. After using a Gateway computer and becoming frustrated with it, I decided I did not want a computer. Christmas of 2010, I received a Telikin as a gft from my daughter. I was not sure I wanted another computer.
The Telikin changed my way of thinking about a computer. I could not believe just how easy and enjoyable using a computer could be! The support team made such a huge difference as I could call and learn about it. The Skype feature, with built in camera and microphone, is wonderful! I talk to and see my 83 year (old-young) brother in Florida just about every day. I also talk to and see our grandchildren who live in various states. That is only one of the really terrific features of the Telikin. If I listed each feature, I would be writing a mini-book. Using the Web is so easy. I never thought I would be able to get so much interesting information.
Thank you Telikin people for a computer that I truly enjoy using and all the great new software you continually add to the Telikin. It keeps me in contact with my family and friends as well as keeping my mind active. Keep up the good work!!”
–Frances T., Easton, PA“I love this Telikin and its simplicity” More
“Thanks so much to tech support for all their help and patience with me. I love this Telikin and its simplicity…Thanks again!”
–JoAnn D., Elgin, NE“Telikin brings the people I care about just a touchscreen away.” More
“The Telikin has had a major impact on my life. Using a computer is so much easier now with the touch screen, as I have limited use of my hand. I am on my computer every day video chatting with family and friends, watching movies, surfing the web, and sharing photos. The Telikin has helped me to stay connected and I can’t imagine not having it. I was introduced to The Telikin when our rehabilitation department at United Hebrew of New Rochelle invited me to be part of a research project with the Telikin company. I loved it so much, I called a relative and he bought me one and donated two to United Hebrew. They are in the library and now other residents can enjoy them too. Thanks Telikin, for creating a computer that brings the people I care about just a touchscreen away.”
–Pam L., New Rochelle, NY“…the best thing of all, being able to Skype with them long distance.” More
“My parents in Omaha have a new Telikin in their home. I've become their first tech buddy. I like the easy to use touchscreen interface. But the best thing of all, being able to Skype with them long distance. I live on the west coast, and love being able to login to their PC from my laptop, and being able to show them where things are, and help with tasks. Right now we're working on email,Facebook, pictures, and Skype. I showed my mother Pandora, and she just loves it. The card games are fun. I must admit, I actually logged on the other day and played "21" on their computer in Omaha through my laptop in LA . It truly is s very cool thing. Thank you Telikin.”
–JanMacPet - purchased her Mom's Telikin from QVC“The support is excellent and I strongly recommend this product.” More
“I have been using Telikin for three months and find it to be relatively easy to operate for a novice using a computer. Information is very clear to understand and the screen is very bright and easy to see. The support from Venture Three is excellent and I strongly recommend this product.”
–Walter Z., Lansdale, PA
“my sisters and brothers and I bought the Telekin for our mother's 90th birthday present. she had been asking for a "grandma computer" that she had seen on TV. We have bought her computers in the past, Windows and Mac, and they were always too complicated for her. But she loves the Telekin and is busy sending e-mails and saving photographs and watch old TV shows on YouTube.”
–James A Civarra - Amazon Review (April 14, 2014)
“I had already bought this computer for my 98 year old father and after seeing how easy to was to read and use, I decided to get one for my mother-in-law who is 92 and uses the computer a great deal. She was thrilled with its speed, and genuine simple operational format.”
–Vivian Lobel - Amazon Review (March 13, 2014)
“We tried all the tablets and notebooks, they were all too complicated and had more capability than he was looking for. He only wanted word processing, email and internet. The Telikin arrived, we set it up, and he was in business. He turns it on every day and is able to order sheet music, and he can easily learn more new songs for his hobby of entertaining in nursing homes.”
–Readsalot - Amazon Review (December 19, 2013)
“I have had my Telikin for about a week now and I love it. I have a Mac Mini for the heavy stuff, but for web surfing, email and chatting it is great. Simple to use and you aren't alway being bugged by upgrades and updates. Once you learn to system, it doesn't change every few month. You don't have to put all those extra duties like a Windows Machine. I use all four of my email account on it. One review said it doesn't run Windows. That is the beauty of the Telikin. It is a limited use machine, not a jack of all trades. I don't use one tenth of the stuff I have available on my Mac. I love the Mac but why should I pay for all that stuff I don't need or use. For its target users, I think it is great. I would recommend it to not only seniors, but anyone that wants a basic computer that is simple to use and don't have all the bells and whistles of a main line machine. Before you were locked into Windows or Mac. Now you have a third choice. Also the support is great, all stateside personnel.”
–Jon E. Brubaker - Amazon Review (November 21, 2013)
“I bought this for my 89-year old mother who had been using WebTV for many years with a dial-up connection. When she was informed that WebTV was going to cease to exist in September, she was afraid she'd never be able to operate a computer. It is amazing how fast she has gotten accustomed to high speed internet, Skype, and now even Facebook! With a little help in the beginning she is becoming more and more adept at using it. There is a great feature called Tech Buddy whereby I can log in and access her computer and move the cursor around myself even though I'm in Nevada and my mother is in Texas. This computer is fairly simple to operate and with the ability to enlarge the font as needed my mother, who has macular degeneration, is able to see everything she wants to. I highly recommend this computer.”
–Karen G - Amazon Review (September 21, 2013)
“This computer is great for older parents who mainly want to have email and web access. It boots up to the home screen with large buttons that always stay on the left side so the user can always get where they want to go. I like that the user can use the touch screen or mouse or alternate to move around the screen. The 18" is definitely large enough, so the larger screen was not needed for my parents. I work in an older adult community and will definitely recommend this to our residents.”
–Nanette - Amazon Review (September 18, 2013)
“This is a wonderful computer if you are not going to do much. For the older generation there are no complaints. It is very user friendly. No cords to mess with, and the simple touch screen is pretty much self explanatory. I would reccommend this product.”
–Amazon Customer - Amazon Review (August 18, 2013)
“I love this computer. My Dad bought this to learn on and it's very easy for him to use. I love the fact that I can be his buddy and guide him when he has trouble. The only thing that I found that was a little confusing to understand was the way you have to bring up your saved pictures. I would recomment this to anyone and I may just buy one myself.”
–Vickie Little - Amazon Review (August 2, 2013)
“ok, this is possibly the best purchase i have ever made. My mom 88 , just lost her husband of 66 years and is sad beyond belief. my dad had a computer, i have a tablet, my sister has an ipad and we have all tried to get my mom interested in the technology to give her a vehicle to participate with all her children and grandchildren. this is the one that has drawn her in to enjoy what technology has to offer. she does not fear that she will fail because she sees how easy it is to understand. she wants to try because she is not intimidated by it. i don't care how good an interface is, if a person is intimidated and feels stupid using it, they will not even try. my mom loves her telikin and i am so happy that it works for her. thanks you for giving my mom something to look forward to each day. the facebook pictures, video chat and email are all so fun for her. and she loves the news and calendar feature as well. she did email me and say "typing is hard, but thanks for helping me, love, mommy" she likes the keyboard better then the touch screen for emails and she is learning to use it. thanks again for helping me to help my mom through such a tough time.”
–Frances R. Sorem - Amazon Review (June 19, 2013)
“My mother was given a regular computer a while back and was utterly frustrated by it. At age 80 she couldnt even master email on it. She was lost. I was a little skeptical about the Telikin after reading one of the reviews. However, at Christmas, the family gave her one as a gift. I was amazed at how much more quickly she picked this up. Now she emails me regularly, Is able to save photos, listens to Pandora effortlessly, bookmarks favorites, plays bridge online, and surfs the web. It is a lot more intuitive than a regular computer. I even enjoy using it when I come to visit her. She is very set in her ways though. I was just trying to teach her to use the middle scroll dial on the mouse and she insisted that the best way to scroll was by dragging the scrollbar on the right of her moniter with her mouse. LOL. Mother knows best. I highly recommend it for the elderly.”
–Quiltbat - Amazon Review (July 10, 2012)
“At last a computer that is easy for me to use. a keyboard that is easy to read. I am 86 years of age and this is the third computer I have had, and by far the best. It also helps me not having the third party installations.I was getting awfully tired of all those unwanted ads. The opportunity of using a touch screen as well as a mouse is a great feature also. ”
–Elise Smith - Amazon Review (June 17, 2012)
“Really pleased with the Telikin! We purchased this for my mother-in-law who doesn't have a clue about a computer. We are geographically separated. While together, I was able to quickly set it up... get her an email account, facebook acct, skype, etc. Once that was done, we were able to get show her how to use the computer and then she did the functions for herself! The user interface is perfect for a non-computer literate person - it just makes sense! The touch screen is responsive and layout is intuitive. My only word of caution is that whoever is setting it up must have more computer understanding than the intended user. The non-windows/non-MAC OS will not recognize any CD/DVD containing the needed setup/installation .exe for routers, printers, etc. It is really important that you have a PC/MAC to establish the wireless service and then the Telekin will gladly join the network. This is apparently the trade-off that you make to get a system that the end user doesn't have to worry about viruses & the like. So far, she is very happy & we are finally able to communicate with the latest technologies. Perfect for the senior citizen.”
–M. Monahan "chelle" - Amazon Review (June 5, 2012)
“Believe all of the glowing reviews. Telikin has perfected the interface and hardware for seniors. And they didn't leave any useful applications out; Pictures, Skype, Facebook, Weather, Mail... I grin at the home screen notifications that tell you everything you need to know in one place. Usually I don't do reviews even when requested, in this case I went out of my way to write this one, before I was asked. This purchase was for my sister in law, can't wait for my Dad's MS XP computer to fail so we can get him one of these. Oh, and I just tested the power consumption, less than 30 watts! Leave it on all day without having to worry about paying your electric bill.”
–mike4bev, - Amazon Review (May 11, 2012)
“My husband's elderly mother wanted a "simple computer" so she could use email and the Internet to stay in touch with family and friends after moving from one coast to the other recently. She is not at all technically adept and had only a little experience using a computer in the past fifteen years. We didn't think there was a "simple computer" and had resigned ourselves to trying to help her learn PC basics, and then we read about Telikin. Wow--it sounded too good to be true! We ordered it for her. My husband has done most of the "training" and helping her learn how to use it, but so far she has been emailing successfully, checking news and weather around the country, saving photo attachments to her albums--and she has only had it for a couple weeks! As she becomes more confident, he will help her do more with it. The touch screen and easy navigating are just what she needed as she had a good bit of trouble navigating with the mouse. At this point, we couldn't be happier with the Telikin.”
MaryinOLY - Amazon Review (August 31, 2011)
“Purchased the Telikin after reading an article / review in our local newspaper... This desktop computer delivers what they say... User and senior friendly, easy to set-up and go! My mother is a first time computer user, and is very pleased with Telikin.”
