Pros: This is a great little keyboard. It fits my big fingers very well, and has the keys where they are normally found. I had one that went bad, then I got another one, but it was not just the right shape and size, and the keys often did not respond to my touch leaving out letters. But this one is really, really good. Great touch, excellent accuracy in touch typing.
Cons: It has a few accessory keys in somewhat strange places, but that doesn't affect touch typing.
Pros: I stated that there was a number keypad you could access thru a switch key, but upon inspection, there is not. It is present on the SIIG keyboard I use also. SIIG uses a FN key to switch letters to numbers on the selected keys.
Summary: Unless you have some special needs like macros, or number keypad needs, I think you will like this size and brand. I usually don't buy them unless they are on sale, or under $20 or so. They do last pretty good, tho not as long as the big standard ones, donno why.
Pros: Works good for gaming, as I game, I don't use macros or other special key uses. Is compact for small desktops. I use two of this size along with two MS Precision Pro mice cause I have two towers I use for gaming and general use. I switch tween the boards and mice physically, works ok. I use the same monitor for both. Limited desktop area is the reason.
Cons: Doesn't have number keypad. This is ok for me, I don't use one, but you can switch some of the letter keys over to a kind of number keypad tho.
Excerpt: I have a A4 tech KL-5 mini slim compact keyboard which I enjoy writing on very much. I got it last year and I think I made a good deal because it only took me back about $13. I remember that I was looking for a slim keyboard and could not find one that I liked in my home town, so I had to ask a friend to look for one. He lives and works in a big city that has a lot more stores than here, so he agreed to search for this.
Summary: If you need something in this class of tiny keyboard, I have been reasonably satisfied with the MCK-91.
Pros: It has a nice look to it and the price is right.
Cons: I foolishly did not notice that it has an "L" shaped Enter key (which is a sin against humanity AFAIC), but beyond that the less obvious flaws are that the CAPSLOCK key has a funny partially raised shape to it.
Summary: I'd buy it again. It's not quite as comfortable for my large hands as a full-sized keyboard, but it's close.
Pros: I wanted a keyboard to take with my laptop to save wear-and-tear on my laptop's keyboard. I also wanted to reduce the risk of an unpleasant result from a spilled drink (which seem to be magnetically drawn to all of my keyboards, for some reason.)
Cons: * only one CTRL key. I wish they had ditched the right-mouse-button-menu key and added another CTRL key.
Summary: Other mini-keyboard types cheat, like putting small keys for the "alt", "ctrl" or "win logo" keys. Or even worse, some other mini-keyboards use tiny keys on the ENTIRE keyboard. But this keyboard is AWESOME if you have large manly fingers.... I have since ordered 4 more of these keyboards to use everywhere I work...
Pros: Initial unit has lasted more than a year. Nice large keys for big fingers. Quiet. Small footprint on my desk. No malfunctions of keys. USB is truly PnP in WinXP.
Cons: Uhm...can't think of any...honestly...ok, well there is just one wish - how about a all white keyboard instead of all black? Sometimes it is hard to find keys in the dark, since I can't completely type by touch at 2AM in the morning.
