Good overall performace
3 March 2013
Summary: Good overall performace. Plug & Play, smooth gliding touch pad that only require low pressure taps. Keys are tactile, quiet, only problem I have is the ENTER key is small and there's only one CTRL key. It takes some getting used to before you becomes intuitive of their locations especailly if you're used to keyboard commands.
Summary: Cherry makes some of the finest mechanical switches around, and this keyboard has a great feel. Clearly sturdy, it was a replacement for an earlier Cherry that lasted more than 10 years. If you like a keyboard with a touchpad, this is the one to get.
Summary: This might sound a little funny but I first noticed these keyboards at my local Staples store. The cashiers were using them at the registers and at the UPS hub. I loved the small footprint and the sound of the keys. I purchased a number of other keyboards but ended up going back to my Staples store and asked the cashier for the model number on the underside of his keyboard. I really, really like this board.
Summary: keyboard switch is no need to comment;but the up down left right key's arrangement is a bit strange, needs some time to be familiar with the touchpad feels of high quality, but a bit small; good product!
Summary: Nice plug&play with windows xp-home :) Having the touchpad on the right hand side, close to where I used to have my mouse (only closer to the key board) was a dealbreaker when I decided to order this keyboard. At first it wouldn't let me adjust the pointer speed which was very dissapointing, it was set to the slowest speed:( ,but that solved itself once I rebooted my system :p The arrow keys to the left of the touchpad is nice for scrolling the page.

Summary: I selected this keyboard because of the built-in touchpad as an alternative to a mouse. (Hate using a mouse.) The touchpad works fine. Keyboard action is on the loose side, which some typists may or may not prefer. Tor a touch typist (like me), the one significant negative is that the right shift key is small (i.e., not oversized). No problems using this product as an external keyboard for my MacBook Pro.
Summary: While a bit expensive compared to other keyboards, the size and builtin touchpad are perfect for those with limited desk space, or limited mobility as in my case. My Windows XP Home recognized it right off, and everything worked without installing any drivers, which was good because mine didn't come with any. Once I got used to it, the touchpad is far, FAR better than the optical trackball I was using. So if you can afford it, I definitely recommend this keyboard!
