Great Keyboard!


My wife and I are IT people.... we go through keyboards like underwear. The Focus 2000 keyboards we used in 1999-2005 were the BEST... MS Media Pro's are still good and usable (used since 2009)... curious as to how long these will last. We love the...

Got one for my wife and I.... we had the Microsoft Media Pro keyboards with the reflective keyboard stickers on them ; These blow the MS keyboards away! Great illumination, GIANT letters for us old folks, hahahah ; This keyboard requires a little...

keys are slick, but not bad

great keyboard, non removable wrist rest


my keyboard tray has a built in wrist rest, so to use this i had too cut the wrist rest off the keyboard with an x-acto knife and sand the edge down.

large print ; backlit keys ; 3 color selections ; traditional layout

wrist rest is not removable ; illumination cant be turned off, even with the computer in hibernation

Couple keys stick, Lights stay on when computer sleeps
