Perfect!

Old Pops, Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: Due to a birth defect, I am somewhat disadvantaged when it comes to typing. On a regular keyboard I type at about 30 wpm. On this device, with the oversized keys, I can type at more than 65 wpm! The keyboard is sturdy, seems to be built well, and operates perfectly.

great for those of us who suffer clumsy, fat fingered dexterity

Douglas E Seitz, Amazon

  • Summary: large keys are great but noisy. location of USB ports on right side interferes with using a mouse or trackball. Otherwise, it is the right solution for those like me that almost flunked typing class 3 times.

Great for the disabled

  • Summary: My disabled brother has been using one of these at school for a while so I decided to pick one up for the house. He loves it and I was able to get it for a better price than the school. Excellent purchase!

Jumbo Keyboard

G. Stone "Gregg Stone", Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: This keyboard is very kid attractive however, the keys are so large that their little hands do not gain typing skills. It is limited and common keys like "escape" are not placed normally. I have a 4 and 7 year old and they do not like the keyboard. I am purchasing a different keyboard immediately. I will donate this keyboard to the local library or school for children with disabilities. It would be great for a sight challenged individual that needs to see the keys.

User Review

  • Summary: I bought this keyboard for my step-son, who is low-functioning autistic and has difficulty with fine motor skills. At first this seemed like a dream - he could actually hit the keys he wanted without assistance, somthing he can't do with a regular keyboard. Unfortunately, we kept having to unplug and then plug the keyboard back in to the computer because it wouldn't stay connected.

Great for Preschoolers

Henchperson "With an H.", Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: We bought this keyboard for my daughter's preschool classroom, after the teacher told us that they were having trouble with the kids frustration after pressing the wrong keys. It's a great tool for teaching kids how to use the computer. The large keys, the colors, all really appealing for little kids. Much harder to use for grownups (forget touch-typing), but it's a kid-keyboard. It's not meant to be used by adults. My only complaint: HOW is this thing so expensive?

Poor Quality

DURV, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: The quality of the keyboard does not match the price at all. Right out of the box, before my son ever even touched it, the keys stick. The ones that do not stick now feel like they will soon. They are not smooth at all. It just seems very cheaply made. I think you would be better off getting a regular keyboard and letting them learn on that from the start.

works great for my dad

Alex Ho, Amazon
17 February 2010
  • Summary: My dad has really bad eye sight and i got this keyboard for him and it has been very useful. The keys are super big so he has no problem hitting the right keys. There is no numeric keypad section on the right side though and that would have been nice. When i tried using it however, it can be a little difficult to get used to.
