good key feel, that's about it

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: This USB keyboard was given to me by Gearhead to solve a mouse problem with their CA-2150 USB-PS/2 mouse & keyboard adapter. It does not. Gearhead tech support does not seem to understand their own products or how computers work in general.
  • Pros: very good clicky feel to the keys, almost silent
  • Cons: 3 annoyances: 1. The keyboard slides around on hard surfaces because it's so light and its rubber feet in front don't make good contact when the legs at the back (also slippery) are extended to tilt up the keyboard. 2. The backspace key is narrow, making it easy to accidentally hit the "\" key just to the left of it. This is an ancient layout abandoned by IBM in the mid-late 1980s and by about everybody else 20 years ago, so I don't understand why Gearhead chose to us...

  • Summary: Keyboard is a good one for the money you pay. However, it does not work when the OS is not loaded. Like getting into the computer's BIOS at boot time for example.

Buyers beware

Brent J., Newegg
17 October 2013
  • Summary: I am on a tight budget and needed a few inexpensive keyboards. There aren't that many cheap keyboards to choose from so I purchased three of these keyboards. The first one I opened, the "J" key is defective. Just resting your hands on the home row and barely touching the keys, the "J" key acts like it is being pushed down all the way and, thus, types a never ending stream of "J's". No way of stopping this unless you pry off the key.
  • Pros: Somewhat inexpensive, but not even worth that. USB connection. Keystrokes are very quiet.
  • Cons: Defective. Cheaply built. Too much pressure on any part of the keyboard and you will break it. No adjustable legs. Backspace key is the old style tiny key and enter key is huge. See other thoughts.

Worst Purchase Ever

Robert, Office Depot
14 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought one of these keyboards on 10/3/13 at the Office Depot in Huntsville Tx. After 3 days the i, k and comma keys stopped working. So, on 10/12/13, when I was back in Huntsville (it's a distance from my house so I wait until I have other things to do there) and exchanged it for another one (same model). As soon as I got home I plugged it in and the q, a, and z keys did not work. Avoid buying one these keyboards.
  • Cons: broken

User Review

Kevin P., Newegg

  • Pros: It makes letters and numbers. Purchased mainly for setting up a new build/and possible temporary backup. This keyboard is the cheapest i could find that could be shipped to Illinois!? tried to purchase a Rosewill but apparently those keyboards violate one of our draconian laws.
  • Cons: for the price, none that I can see
