Summary:  I found a keyboard of another brand locally that meets all of the criteria. A lesson learned...
Pros:  Good key touch and response as expected from a Keytronic keyboard.
Cons:  The flatness of the keyboard stance may appeal to some ... but, I find it uncomfortable. The "feet"/stand is a loose sideways folding design that does not lock into place. The design being different and I think cheap, it loosely folds sideways and randomly does so while typing. I worked for a guy in the early 1990's ... he had a knack for making products cheaper ... not better ... this keyboard reminds me of him.
Summary: It's light and the rubber feet are inadequate, so it slides around. I don't push it, though, and it doesn't go anywhere.
Pros: Small, basic, nice cord, even, good sound. I did a bunch of research before I bought a keyboard, and this one seems the longest-lasting. Nice big letters. Standard "Print Screen / Sys Rq", etc. (I'm a linux guy), along with the standard Start Menu button for Winblows. Amazingly cheap. Possible to take apart, clean, and put back together.
Cons: Backspace key is smaller than normal. I push backspace a whole heck of a lot more than enter; why it has to be 1/5 the size of the latter makes no sense. Still getting used to it.
Pros: It was cheap and on the smaller side. its perfect for traveling i lug a 20+ pound mid tower around everyday and i love the fact that this keyboard can easily fit into the side pouch on my carrying case its lite weight and it has a big enter key i hate the small thin ones.
Cons: none so far i use it heavily every day this company has a good reputation for building strong keyboards i hope it holds up to my abuse
