Shift key does not work properly
6 February 2014
Excerpt: Shift key does not work properly (intermittently). To get a capital letter, I sometimes have to hit the 'Caps lock', type the letter and then hit the 'Caps lock' key to return to lower case - irritating! It worked fine for the first week or so. Other functions that need the shift key to work, do not, such as the 'control/alt/delete' combo.
Excerpt: I thought this would be great but NO...abnormal placement of hands while typing and keys are abit too small and close together.........after typing for over 50 years this is a pain in the you know what. I think I will take it back for something else.
Excerpt: It is a terrible keyboard. It is constantly missing typed keys and I spend way too much time correcting my typing due to the keyboard not functioning. I keep it literally 6 inches from the computer and it still misses keystrokes non stop.
Summary: This is a very cheaply made keyboard and has a terrible touch to it. It might not be very expensive, however, I would suggest going with a no name brand over this one. I have five dollar keyboards that are better than this. I am very disappointed with it.
Pros: It was not very expensive
Cons: I have to agree with the person that wrote that it is: cheap feel, mushy keys, warped frame.
Summary: All ergonomic keyboards take some getting used to, but sadly the point of learning a new way to type is lost here because this is less comfortable even than standard keyboards, nevermind the superlative Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 (UK) (which I recommend you buy instead). This model seems like it is meant to be a halfway house for those scared to go all-in for the 4000.
