Tiny Escape Key and F-Keys

Amadeo Q., Newegg
28 April 2014
  • Summary: As a developer, I use the Escape and F-keys regularly, and so the key size and travel issues mentioned were deal-breakers for me. Since I got the combo on sale, it was worth it to keep the set for the mouse alone, so after a week of trying to live with the keys, I boxed the keyboard and have used only the mouse since purchasing it. Buyer beware, if you use the Escape or F-keys regularly, do NOT buy this keyboard/combo!
  • Pros: Keyboard Pros:
  • Cons: Practically-unusable Esc and F1, F2, etc. keys. They are about a third of the height of a standard key, and have a fraction of the depth in key travel, so pressing them is an exercise in digging the very tip of your finger into (and I do mean INTO) the keyboard. Feels like you're pressing something that shouldn't normally be pressed, like a reset button on the computer.

Terrible, cheap, ergonomic as a brick, save yourself the trouble

stumblessf, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: This is hands down the most un-comfortable office product I have ever touched. Even after paying extra for the "business model" it felt cheap and about as ergonomic as a 2x4. Doesn't work w/ a Mac. I had it out of the box for 5 minutes before I sent it back. ALSO - The USB receiver is HUGE.

Decent keyboard

WAM, officedepot.ugc.bazaarvoice.com

  • Excerpt: I really like the look and feel of this keyboard, EXCEPT the function (F1 - F12) keys are tiny and hard to push. If you use F- keys a lot, don't buy this keyboard.

microsoft keyboard 5000

workingman, Officemax
2 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I would not recommend this wireless keyboard and mouse kit. The keyboard could not keep up with my fast typing. The mouse was bulky and the left and right finger buttons are very stiff and hard to click. I returned it back to officemax, with no-hassle return. thank you officemax. I also tried the keyboard 3000, also returned to officemax. if you type fast, stay with a wired/usb keyboard.
  • Cons: Features, Design, Dependability, bulky

UK Version - tiny tiny left shift key and tiny function keys

Laughing John, Amazon
7 March 2014
  • Summary: This keyboard is not bad on the whole, but on the UK version the large-ish shift key from the US version is replaced with two keys, one with "|" and "\" and the smallest shift key I have ever seen. As a coder this is very annoying as are the small function keys, personally I prefer them the same size as the other keys on the keyboard.

A very Frustrating Keyboard

J R Mathieson, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: I've had this Keyboard a few weeks now... Initial thoughts Were mixed. Its a sleek design and Lots of great Media Keys... However The Ergonomic keys takes some getting use to if you are a touch typer as the keys are elongated in places and shorter in others. So some misplaced strokes were about. However this does sort itself out as you get use to it. However The Biggest Issue is that I keep finding that the keyboard does not register some key strokes...
