Total Dissapointment

Anonymous, Newegg
19 December 2014
  • Summary: at one time KeyTronic made some of the best key boards around but sadly now they produce junk. Perhaps just going for the fast buck and forgetting the high quality they once put into their workmanship.
  • Pros: very nice layout and sturdy for the VERY short time it did last.
  • Cons: i had the same exact issues with this piece of junk as the previous person stated............... failed after just a few months of very lite use. Some and then most of the keys stopped working.

Great keyboard, great price

Anthony O., Newegg
29 June 2014
  • Pros: This is a large, tactile keyboard that makes you feel like you're using a computer from, perhaps, last century. But that is a good thing. You don't get the tactile click, but you do get the nice travel and feel of the buttons. Very solid product and super for gaming (not programmable) and just typing.
  • Cons: It tends to stop working when the cat pukes on it and no one cleans it up until I get home. (buying a second one, and the cat has been banned from the computer desk)

Best OLD KLUNKER type keyboard

Anonymous, Newegg
3 September 2012
  • Summary: I have used this model to replace 100 of old keyboards that were either the same kind but PS/2 (and finally died after 10 years) or the keyboard that came with the new towers (lost keys in 2 days) No ISSUES, No Driver, no learning curve, no complaints In Fact, We bought several in beige, distressed them, and secretly replaced the keyboards at certain workstations where the OLD DOGS wanted "THEIR trusty keyboard" fixed and not replaced.
  • Pros: This is that classic big keyboard design and feel from the PS/2 and % DIN days. it has the old kind of "spring" in the resistance of the keys and "clickity" sound that any old school data entry person can identify with. and is built like a brick in comparison to those soft key letter popping ones that came with the tower. BUT this one comes with a USB plug to work with all those computers and laptops that no longer have a PS/2 plug
  • Cons: Absolutely NONE

great basic keyboard

Brotzman I., Newegg
10 July 2012
  • Pros: I've worked with computers for 30 years, having worked for a computer dealer through the 80's before moving on to another business where I build my own computers and type on a computer keyboard all day. If there's a better basic keyboard out there than a Keytronic, I haven't run across it. The arrangement and touch are great, and they're built to last. I've just ordered a new one to replace my 8+ year old Keytronic keyboard. The old board is still working great, but I...
  • Cons: Made in China. That's the only negative I can think of.

Very nice

Clayton H., Newegg
26 September 2011
  • Summary: I own this and the more expensive KeyTronic CLASSIC-U2 Black USB version. They two models are identical except the location of the "\" key. This one has "\" next to a shortened backspace key, the Classic has it next to a shortened Right Shift key...both to allow a larger "L" shaped Enter key. I was concerned this would be a cheapened model because of the price difference and the "Lifetime Series" denomination. It is not.
  • Pros: Solid build, excellent key action, no extra nonsense buttons. The buttons are tall and rise/slope from bottom to top, making it very easy to feel where your fingers are, unlike the typical flat, cheap feeling, mushy and way overpriced keyboards by most manufacturers...Logi*cough*crosoft.
  • Cons: No wrist support, short cord.

Not bad backup.

Scruffy M., Newegg
20 August 2011
  • Summary: Ive used this thing for I want to say 5 years? and its still works. granted its only been my "main" keyboard for 2 out of those 5 years. It should be noted this keyboard does not have the full standard format. It has a reverse L shaped Enter and a short backspace button (to move the " \ | " key next to + = key.
  • Pros: It was cheap and lasting me a good amount of years.
  • Cons: Nothing really...

  • Pros: Nice layout
  • Cons: Quality has suffered over the years. This is not the sturdy keyboard of 5 to 10 years ago under the same model code.

Best keyboard for the price

susan d., Newegg
6 November 2010
  • Pros: One of the best no frills keyboards around. Simple and rugged, its taken years of gaming from me and still feels great pulling off 120+ wpm. Keytronic has, and still does, keep the quality up and the price.
  • Cons: none.
