Great little keyboard

KolAltai, Mwave.com
27 September 2012
  • Summary: I have 3 of these (one of which Ive refurbished myself) that I use with different computers. Its a well-made, nice keyboard. Light enough so that I even take one along in my carry-on bag when traveling as an external keyboard for my laptop and netbook.
  • Pros: Excellent touch. Touchpad responds quickly
  • Cons: Letters wear off keycaps quickly, use a keyboard protector.

Don't buy this

  • Summary: From the moment you start your computer there are problems. Small irritating ones that drive you made! There is a numbers lock that requires you to turn it off twice, once when you log into your computer and once when you start using the operating system! How stupid is that! And you can not disable it. The touch pad is poorly located and the buttons below are not very responsive. I wouldn't reccomend this to anyone and in fact I sent it back after only two days effort!

new layout hard to get used to

bank-IT, TigerDirect.com
29 August 2011
  • Summary: agree with other reviewer, only 1 Control Key is inconvenient. Bigest gripe is location of basic Delete key, so much different than what I am used to. I am settling in to the different layout but it is taking time. Touch-pad mouse buttons and wrist rest don't work well for me, I'm used to the buttons being AT the bottom not near the bottom. Right away I've had a few keys stick down and tttttttttttype letters when my hand had left the keyboard.

Good Keyboard

muanjai, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: The feel of the keys is quite good, the touch pad, although very sensitive has good action. It is nice to have the vertical and horizontal scroll features on the touchpad. I found it strange that there is only one Control key on the keyboard. So for keyboard shortcuts using a right-control key, you have to adjust to using two hands instead of just one hand. Otherwise the keyboard works well and interfaces with an older computer quite well.

Well built, comfortable, and functional

Jeffer, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: What can I say - it's a keyboard, for gosh sakes. But it's definitely a well built product with a lot of great features. It's used in a tight space, so the touchpad was necessary, and this is a good one. Everyone wants wireless, but if you don't NEED to clear a desk of a wire, get a wired one. And buy this one, it's worth the money.

Great keyboard!

Happy purc, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Very comfortable. Lots of neat features. The touchpad on the right side is great for lefties who want to use both mouse and touchpad. Not so great is the Home button to the right of backspace button on the top right-have to get used to the backspace button not being last on row.
