Out of the box

 

The keyboard is what Newegg described

The keyboard came in a different package. The cd that was shown as part of the package contents did not get shipped with it. Now I am forced to find the driver via internet

Best quality Ergo keyboard in the lower price range

 

Nice flat layout to this keyboard but the center is raised a little. This is not one of those with the extreme 'wave' design to it.

Good solid feel to the keys. Everything works ; Just the basic features you want in an inexpensive ergonomic keyboard. Cheaper ones just don't compare

The four way directional arrow keys are compact. Not my favorite ; No free toy inside

best pratical keyboard I've seen in a long time

 

I started using a belkin split keyboard a long time ago and feel in love. They (belkin) replaced that model with an all around piece of junk and since then I've been looking for a replacement. This is the best I've seen in years. I've never liked the...

I've been waiting for this!!! Feels really solid (like you could run over it with a mack truck,).The keys feel just right to me, not to hard or soft. A few usable shortcut keys (I hate when a keyboard is loaded down with them). It's doesn't take up the...

nit picky but ; I would prefer the arrow keys in a, one on top, three in a row, configuration. left, down, right on one row ; Lastly, I don't use the function keys frequently so I don't mind them being slightly smaller but the home, end, pg up, pg...

Great Ergo Keyboard

 

Got this to replace a Belkin board I had used for years. This one is ever better, great looking, good placement of "bonus" controls. Oh, and it IS a USB unit.

Elegant, great feeling keys, handy extra buttons in an out of the way location

None

absolutely 5 stars / USB

 

MINE IS A USB KEYBOARD!!!

Amazing feel, fits just right ( i have large hands ) ; detected and installed without even restarting the machine; I plugged it right in. No need for a driver disk ; the keys have a plush and responsive feel ; This is my first transition to ergonomic...

the plastic is not black its dark gray, but admittedly its still very nice

Consumer review by:

Not a PS/2 Keyboard

 

I checked the item number on the bottom of the keyboard. It is indeed a 59501. But it isn't what the specs say. I am not very pleased with it and I may be sending back for exchange.

It is a nice layout. Very comfortable to use. Has the extra function buttons. Keys have a very good feel ; I gave it 3 eggs because it is a good keyboard, but it isn't what was discribed in the specifications. Had it of been, I would have given it 5 eggs

Mine was NOT ps/2, it was usb with no adaptor to change it to ps/2 ; Not a big complaint, but I did order it because I wanted ps/2 connection ; No Install CD came with mine either

People are too nitpicky

 

C'mon keys sticking?! Try not to spill that tank of Pepsi on it and I bet you'd get much better functionality.

I've had this keyboard for over a year now and it is great. I purchased from NewEgg (No issues - as always) and it has been great to use. I enjoy the low profile (Laptop Style) keys as well as the multimedia keys, they come in very handy

Doesn't make me breakfast in bed

Consumer review by:

keyboard

 

the keys are like a laptop keyboard. not very high keys and they are each smoothed into the next.

small and cheap

some of the keys stick when you press them. when you type fast and 1 key sticks, its very anoying. it isnt a specific key, they just tend to stick now and again

Consumer review by:

Pfft

 

All the keys work

Function Keys do not Function, even after having loaded the drivers, and they are not user programmable. This keyboard is not good for gaming. The use of any key other than the one you are using (for forward or backward movement for example) will kill...

Great Product/Poor Shipping

 

Keyboard is great. Great product for the price

I'm glad this order was just a keyboard. The package came smashed from UPS. I don't know what the Big Brown Truck people were doing to the box, but it was terrible. If this had been sensitive electronics im sure none if it would of worked. Terrible...
