Good construction

  • Pros: Good construction, washable.
  • Cons: Not as easy to type on as standard keyboards, and the print screen button is close the backspace button.

Practical Tec, not Grand

Robert A., Newegg
6 August 2011
  • Summary: I am glad that I now own this keyboard but plan to retire it soon to serve as a back up unit awaiting the next time my cat or I am klutzy enough to kill my main keyboard with a spilled drink. If I were to use it as my standard keyboard it would slow my typing significantly and increase my typos.
  • Pros: This keyboard is slim and portable. One can roll it up into a small space. Though I don't plan on spilling tea onto it as I did with its late, lamented predecessor, I'm confident that it would survive the shock.
  • Cons: One needs to be very positive in pressing each key which slows down typing. A light tap of a key won't register the keystroke and a little delay in releasing the key can result in repeat letters. Manufacturing vicissitudes have created some oddities in the layout. For example, the shift bars are ...

Aptly Named

ITek, Walmart
18 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard for my son's computer, since he had made a mess of his old one due to eating at his computer. The name fits. It is virtually indestructible. If you are a touch typist, this keyboard will slow you down quite a bit.

Garbage

  • Pros: Flexable, quiet.
  • Cons: Zero key sticks, even though rubber part is not stuck to electronics. Don't buy this. It's a piece of garbage.

Not as good as it used to be

Michael C., Newegg
7 December 2010
  • Summary: I've owned two of these. The first I got maybe 2-2.5 years ago (a previous model) for my home computer. It was odd at first, but had very smooth typing. Loved it. I got this model about a year ago at work. Much stiffer keys, making typing more error-prone.
  • Pros: Silicone, easily to clean, durable.
  • Cons: Stiff keys and some goofy key placements.

Odd for a touch typer, great for kids

Cindra E., Newegg
21 October 2010
  • Summary: Got this for my son's computer as my youngest (2 years) kept removing the keys from his previous keyboard. When I first unpacked it, he spent nearly an hour trying to figure out how to remove the keys. Didn't work out for him.
  • Pros: It's indestructible, my youngest son can't remove the keys from it (read below), my oldest son can pour whatever he wants on it and I can just run it under some water to clean it off, cheap when compared to the other indestructible keyboards.
  • Cons: For myself, being a touch-typer and very used to normal-feeling keyboards, I find it kind of a nuisance to type on this thing. My son hasn't started learning typing, though, so he's perfectly okay with it. I wouldn't think of starting my son with learning how to type on this keyboard since it jus...

Latest models are throw-aways

Glenn X., Newegg
15 September 2010
  • Summary: The CTRL key has been a lower right, bottom-most standard for decades, but GrandTec finally some how got it wrong. The rubber is way too stiff to type accurately or at all the o of the control button. What are they thinking?
  • Pros: I've been using The FLX series GrandTec boards for almost a decade now, and have even converted my office to use them for silent productivity. The original models were quick to adapt to and had volume controls in-place of three useless nubs. The second revision removed the volume control, but int...
  • Cons: With the latest reversion, however, GrandTec has turned a classic into a complete dud. Key presses simply do not register without full and forceful contact. It has taken a 90+ WPM user down to less than 30 thanks to constant corrections. The most egregious change of all is a move of the CTRL key ...

INDESTRUCTABLE

QuickLoLBoost, Newegg
6 September 2010
  • Pros: It is so easy to store and will not get damaged from pressure or falls. I tried to rip this thing with my hands and it still works! It is very easy to clean and any accidental spills will not short out this keyboard.
  • Cons: The placement of the buttons on this keyboard is unorthodox. There is more than one shift and space button. It takes a while to get used to it and the buttons can move from side to side instead of bouncing up and down so be wary.

Finaly broke one

Anthony L., Newegg
13 July 2010
  • Pros: Because of the price, i got this for my wife as a keyboard for her to use, she spills everything on them and i was tired of having to replace normal keyboards. I finially had to order a new one after almost 7 years of using it. I can tell you she will never use a different keyboard on her compute...
  • Cons: belive it or not, the only con i've ever heard is that it doesn't come in other colors.
