A solid, compact business-like keyboard that brings a laptop-like feel to the desktop

Excellent keyboard

 

I have 2 of these keyboards and have not experienced a single missed spacebar (or other keystroke). I can hit the spacebar anywhere and it works every time. My kids love the cherry blue keyboards, but I find them far too loud. I have always wanted...

As close to my lenovo thinkpad keyboard for a desktop as I can get. Excellent and positive response with quietish feedback my favorite desktop keyboard ever. Audio shortcut keys are wonderful and work with windows media player nicely.

none that I have experienced. If I have to pick something, perhaps having backlit keys would be nice.

What I wanted and more.

 

Semi-mechanical laptop style keyboard. No giant noisy keys. The media keys actually work, and adds a very nice volume overlay. Keypad on the side. Wired. Nice matte finish. Basically, it's perfect.

No backlight, although some might consider that a pro!

Cool keyboard!

 

Like I said in the pros, this keyboard is very heavy so it doesn't move around on my desk at all. I love that. If you move your keyboard around a lot or set it on your lap, this might not be the one for you. Great keyboard!

Very Heavy(stays put). Quiet keys. Long cable.

None.

defective

 

I didn't buy this from newegg but I thought I'd write a review anyways.

Nice setup, flat keys.

Unresponsive keys. Space bar, b, n, and several other keys would periodically go dead althought it is permante this time.

Great Keyboard

 

The picture on the newegg site at the time I purchased and the box itself shows a german layout. The description on newegg says it is a normal layout, and thankfully, it was.

Scissor switches, which I prefer the feel of. Spill Resistant. PS/2 + USB supported. I prefer the PS/2 to keep more usb ports free and perhaps some lower latency. Very slick looking, and slim too. Media keys, but just the 6 most important ones. Some of...

Pad printing for the keys. I don't mind though. No nkro rollover or anything like that.

I may have to buy one of these...

 

I never have been one to spend much on a keyboard (usually just get an inexpensive microsoft one or something similar) but this keyboard's look and feel is impressive. Heck, I am writing up a review for a keyboard! I think I am going to have to get one...

My wife just built her first computer with a bit of help from me and this is the keyboard we ended up getting for her. I have been using it while taking the computer for a test drive and I LOVE IT! Here's why: It seems very well constructed and is...

None that I can think of, really. I prefer a dial for the sound control, but I can live without one.
