Mushiest keyboard I have ever used

Dan H., Newegg
9 May 2015
  • Pros: It's a keyboard and it technically works. USB hub seems to do what it's supposed to.
  • Cons: This is the mushiest keyboard I have ever used. I've use an IBM PCjr keyboard. This was worse. It's like the keys are mounted on play-doh. Fast typing is basically impossible.

gets the job done

Charles E., Newegg

  • Summary: Not sure about the issues in the other reviews. Of course when Ibought it, I knew it was not ideal for gaming or fast responses especially at such a low price...but I am definitely suprised that I had none of those problems. Ive never had keys sticking or problems with getting fast responses.
  • Pros: Gets the job done. Usb ports for reduced clutter. Media keys and standard keyboard size. Works and is affordable.
  • Cons: After about half a year, the cord connected to the keyboard came loose and pulled out. It wasnt a big deal as it didnt completely fall out n I just taped it down. It isnt a gaming keyboard but it hasnt given me problems altho 3 years later it sometimes stops being recognized at post bootup. No bi...

Terrible Keyboard

John E., Newegg
6 February 2013
  • Summary: Do not buy this keyboard or any other by this manufacturer.
  • Pros: It has a working usb port.
  • Cons: It is by far the worst keyboard I have ever encountered. The keys have no "spring" to them. A couple on mine actually need to be lifted back up.

  • Summary: smooth keystroke and like the name said quiet . The two USB hub is a nice touch for expandability . Has 17 built in multimedia keys on the top. Browser, email, sound , calculator, turn the PC on and off as well. Nice keyboard for the price.
  • Pros: nice profile, nice flow to the feel of the keyboard when typing. Multimedia is also a nice feature as described in the summary below
  • Cons: none

Wish I could return it

Tammy M., Newegg
3 February 2012
  • Summary: Overall, it's not a bad keyboard, but since I tend to type quickly, I need a better responsiveness from the keys. It's not horrible, but I do find myself making more typos that aren't my fault but the keyboard's not registering the buttons I pressed.
  • Pros: It does work, mostly... I love the USB ports on the top and the media keys. It's not bulky and fits great on my desk.
  • Cons: The keys are not very sensitive. Maybe I'm just used to my laptop keyboard, but I feel like I have to really press down on the keys in order to get them to work. Also, the key response time isn't optimal for gaming.

Decent for the price

  • Excerpt: I found the space bar needs to be hit a bit too hard, so I have to go back and put in the space between works. Otherwise, it works fine.

  • Excerpt: Would have been worth the [$] I paid for it, if it wasn't for the loose spacebar key. It was loose in the bag when I received the keyboard. I put it in place, but there seems to be a missing spring or something.
