A good keyboard

Tech when I need to be, Staples
6 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Replaced another older PS2 interface keyboard. USB connectivity makes this a no-brainer. The fact that it is a wired connection is not a bother in the situation where it is used. It is part of a docking station setup anyway where there are a whole lot of USB ports available for use.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable Performance

Not a replacement for a split keyboard

Philip E., Newegg
13 January 2013
  • Summary: This would be an awesome keyboard if you're coming from a normal keyboard and want something to alleviate wrist strain. Coming from a "true" split keyboard, the slanty angled keys aren't enough; the whole thing is just too cramped.
  • Pros: Good keypress feedback, good sound, no useless extra buttons like "browser", "order pizza", "email". I like that the connector is USB with a PS/2 adapter rather than the other way around.
  • Cons: Coming from a split keyboard (the bog-standard Microsoft Natural that seems to be permanently out of stock these days), this keyboard is just too cramped. It's mostly okay to type on if I'm looking at the keys, but trying to do anything while looking away (type, game, etc) and I find that even th...

Recipient loved it

  • Summary: I got this as a gift, and the person loves it! Her keyboard broke, so she was dead in the water, but this is a lot better than the one she had (even when it worked).

User Review

Corey R., Newegg
14 August 2012
  • Pros: Incredible keyboard. I've owned one for years, and I don't foresee replacing it with another. I use the \ key a lot (programming + shell use (unix)) and I actually prefer its placement under the Enter key. This keyboard is extremely comfortable. Using any other makes my wrists sore after an hour ...
  • Cons: A wee bit loud. Indicator lights too bright for my taste (I'm always putting capacitors into everything I buy).

THIS KEYBOARD IS PERFECT

SCOOPNJ78, TigerDirect.com
22 January 2012
  • Summary: Like my headline says THIS KEYBOARD IS PERFECT !!! The alignment of the keys fits the hand, the key action is perfect, ordered 2 of them, will order them again as needed. The keys are angled so it is easy for the fingers to find the correct keys, less typos.

GREAT KEYBOARD!!!!!

Adam H., Newegg
22 December 2011
  • Summary: shipping was quick. arrived on time. fully functioning.
  • Pros: I REALLY LIKE this keyboard. I used this model at work for 2 years and it took everything in me to not take that one with me. SO... I ordered the exact same model (this model) for my new job and still love it. It takes very little time to get used to, reduces wrist strain and is ideal for people ...
  • Cons: NOT GOOD FOR GAMING!!! If you are a gamer this is not the keyboard for you. This is the only reason I won't give it a 5 rating

number row DOA

Ian U., Newegg
28 January 2011
  • Pros: Awesome key layout, has a nice feel. I would have loved to be able to use this keyboard . . . .
  • Cons: Every number in the top row does not work except for the 5 and 6. I play Starcraft. That's not going to work for me.

A satisfying keyboard

Michael P., Newegg
12 November 2010
  • Summary: The keyboard is solid and comfortable. My only complaint is that the Enter key displaces the backslash, making it difficult for working with TeX and some programming languages.
  • Pros: The keys are firm and produce a very satisfying click while typing. The keyboard is fully compatible with Mac OS X and you can assign the Windows and Alt keys to Alt and Command, respectively, to have a traditional Mac keyboard layout.
  • Cons: The large enter key takes up the space properly occupied by backslash. This is pretty annoying as a working programmer, and forces me to remap forward slash to backslash when working with TeX. It is a major flaw in an otherwise solid design.
