Good Keyboard at a great price
28 November 2015
Summary: I've only had this about a week, but so far it works pretty well. I just plugged it into my desktop and was ready to go. I got this to replace the Logitech keboard that was only about 6 months old and the letters were already wearing off.
Pros: This is a good basic keyboard. I like the way the keys feel as I type. Another plus is the keys that are for controlling volume and video pause / play.
Cons: I had a Microsoft curved keyboard before this one and liked it better. Unfortunately, it was no longer made so I settled for this keyboard. I still prefer the curved style as I feel it is more comfortable and puts less strain on my wrists.
Excerpt: So far this has been a great keyboard. I got it to replace the keyboard that came with my computer years ago and had worn out. This one has soft user friendly keys and media control, volume play/pause etc. I was also thought that the price was reasonable compared to other models that I looked at.
Summary: THE TRADEOFFS 1. In order to reduce the size of the keyboard, the right side of the keyboard has been rearranged, meaning the Insert/Delete, Home/End, and PgUp/PgDn keys are in different positions than I'm used to.
Pros: 1. The keys feel great, having the perfect snap to them! 2. The battery life is incredible. I've been using mine for months now, and running on only two AAA batteries, I have yet to change them! 3. Key locations of the keys I use most are perfect: Arrow Keys, Letter Keys, Tab, Shift, Control, Alt...
Cons: 1. Windows 7 issues. I had extreme problems installing Windows 7 with this keyboard attached, and for months had no idea that the keyboard was the culprit. Once I figured it out, simply removing the keyboard dongle during installation solve the problem. Yet I still have Windows 7 issues, especial...
Summary: I bought this to take with me when traveling, to use with my Surface Pro tablet/laptop when I need to get serious work done (i.e. a lot of typing). It works with the Pro with no problems and I love that you can detach the palm rest to make it more compact.
Summary: Oh my Gosh! I LOVE this keyboard. I also really love the ability of changing the space bar into a backspace button. The space bar is divided in half and the left half can be configured to be a backspace key instead. The default is for it to function as a space bar so it is optional.
