If you like your laptop keyboard...


I've used this keyboard as my main work keyboard (programmer) for 8 months and it's been flawless. Love the feel, love the slight clack of the keys (it's pretty quiet), love the key travel (almost none), love the price. I will be buying another as a...

this is the keyboard for you. After years of working at least 8hrs/day on a Sony Vaio laptop keyboard, the 'q' key started to act up, so I wanted to switch to a standalone keyboard. After trying some of the buckling-spring, clunky keyboards around the...

Good looking, but I wouldn't call it "stylish ; Media button thing is kinda silly, works fine ; Buttons feel slightly cheap--but $20 is cheap

Looks Great


Use a soft LCD cleaning solvent and cloth to keep this clean. It shows every fingerprint and dust. I really loved this keyboard at first then it started showing its true colors after about 6 months. It is for looks and browsing, not gaming.

This keyboard is beautiful and has a real nice finish to it. I also love the folding cover that flips up and hides the keys. Looks real tidy on the desk when everything is clean

Well about 6 months after I owned this I got into a game that used the WASD keys and about played it for about a month and noticed each one of those keys are cracked down the middle. Cheap keys ; Then my own stupidity I spilled my coffee and some got...

Happy with this keyboard


The wrist pad that's built into the keyboard is not nearly as good as a standalone one, but much better than nothing.

Great compact keyboard. Inexpensive, comfortable and takes minimal amount of space when folded. If you want something smaller, you'll need a rollable keyboard

not really

X-Slim Finally dies


First I dropped it down the stairs 3 times... Second, I accidently dropped a fully loaded antec nine hundred on it. Third, I dropped it aproximately 5 feet high thanks to a tourney I lost...(anger problems? lol) Last but not least the last thing I...

After almost 3 years of owning this board, today it finally died ; Don't think it's a bad board because it stopped operating after two years, this board went through some serious abuse ; I mostly used it for games, many people thought, "Why not...

It finally died :( so now I have to buy another one, because all the other keyboards are pointless. What the hell is the point of a glowing keyboard, I freakin memorized the keypad already

Sleek Black Beauty.


The sleek design is very attractive. If you like flat laptop-like keys, then you may like this keyboard. I prefer standard keys so I'm in the market for another keyboard. I'll keep this one for a spare.

I like the PS/2 plug on the end of the cord. It fits nicely into my PS/2 input port without an adapter. The two adjustable rear feet are sturdy enough. The audio controls work well and the wrist pad is soft, attractive, and well-made, though the...

Sometimes I have to press a key several times firmly to get it to work

Good enough


This is a very good keyboard, and I would encourage anyone who wants to have a laptop keyboard for use with their desktop computer to purchase this. Most of the cons to this keyboard are minor and are either overlooked after hours of use, or are so...

The keyboard has an excellent feel due to the laptop-style keys. The arrow keys and home key block is integrated into the main keys, so the keyboard is rather small. The folding wrist rest works well, and the typing position is excellent, but only if...

Limited media keys; I would like to have a mute button instead of volume up/down. Awkward positioning of the media keys: it would be nice if they were on independent buttons instead of a d-pad setup. The wrist rest isn't very durable, and I can't see...

One of the best!!!


Its a great keyboard for the $$ and I suggest it to anyone looking for a great keyboard at a low price.

This keyboard is great. Laptop style keys wrist comfort... and even a little media control pad in the top corner... It also has a travel form sorta.. It folds up and it is great for carrying it around and just when your not using it

None at all i love it

Consumer review by:



I am glad someone copied this design and made a cheaper one. I include these with the custom computers I build for people

laptop style keys, folding wrist rest/dust cover like the expensive keyboards from another brand. works properly. laptop key layout plus a # pad makes it very useful but compact

hmm... some might not like the glossy black for fingerprints etc

Great keyboard!


Great feel with a short throw. This keyboard feels just like a laptop. This is what I've been looking for. I'm going to order a couple more before they disappear

The wrist pad is starting to go a little. I didn't buy it for that and the feel more than makes up for it

A KB that fit my needs.


Now if they would come out with a 1U version of this in a combo that would be sweet.

I looked all over for something that would work in a rack mount rig. finding something that had a cover was awesome. Nice slim line keyboard and very much like a laptop keyboard. Right size and shape for what I needed, a nice low-pro for a rackmount setup

A little pricey but it's a specialty item. Plastic but compared to other similar performers for what I wanted it was about 300.00 USD cheaper
