Great little keyboard


My fingers were getting 'confused' switching between keyboards and this one is the answer for me.

Great keyboard, snappy feeling keys, email, internet homepage, volume and other multimedia keys are convenient. Compact size with a full standard layout and NO over-sized enter or delete keys. Feels like Mac and laptop keys so if you switch back and...

About the only thing I would have preferred would be volume keys that would not require holding the Fn key, but then it might have been larger

Good so far-- nice change of pace


I did a 180 with this one, switching from a buckling-spring mechanical keyboard to this lappy design. I've been typing so much on laptops lately that my old mechanical beast started to feel like work. If this lasts it will be a good deal...ordered a...

Looks sharp, good key feel, USB ports work, very thin design, metal

Not all extra keys work in Win 7 (not that I expected them to). Sits low on desk so may be uncomfortable to some typists

Nice Elegant Aluminum Keyboard


Would really like to see the same thing but with led back-light keys for working in the dark or playing games with on/off/dimmer function.

No wasted space on the desk ; Very clean design ; Made well ; One of the only aluminum keyboard I could find

Takes a day to get used to the flat keys

mac keyboard clone


Anyway, with a few improvements to this design, I'd pay even twice the amount for this keyboard!!

After test driving a mac for a couple months, I wanted a similar keyboard on my PC... this is the closest I could find and while it's not quite as nice as the mac version, it is good enough ; I like that it is black instead of white, I like the blue...

I wish it had dedicated media keys instead of having to use Function (Fn) + F7-12... also, that Fn key replaced the right windows key which I sorta miss. I wish it was backlit as well (maybe with a nice blue LED color like on the lock keys

At first not being able to adjust the height of the keyboard bothered me, but after using it for a bit now I realize that any adjustments made available would take away from the nice low-profile design. Being able to remap some of the shortcut keys...

Best keyboard design I've seen. Very clean, solid design. It might sound strange, but it's actually a joy to type on this. The resistance of the keys is perfect. The sleek design is great. Before I wanted to hid my clunky keyboard, but I put this one...

I see what some were talking about in regards to the num-lock key light "bleeding" into surrounding keys. It's not a BIG deal during the day, but in the evening hours it's noticeable to the point where I removed the key and blacked out the surrounding...

Bought a replacement


I wish there was a bigger gap separating the function keys. A few keys can sound creaky. Different ones on different keyboards (this is my second). Not a huge deal.

THis is actually a pretty good gaming keyboard. THere are a lot of little pluses about this keyboard that will go unmentioned. As you can see, I seem to drag the shift with this keyboard, but that could be my fault. It has features like: you just plug...

Well I had to return it, so that makes it more expensive and a hassle and disappointment ; You end up typing differently, like with the flat of your finger, instead of the tip. This can make your fingers sore for a while at first

This i-rocks keyboard ... rocks !


Lightweight, simple, solid keys, aluminum cover. This Keyboard is the best. I literary bought and tried 9 different keyboards before this one. (From Logitech and Microsoft). This thing is amazing. Soft keys, pressing the corner of a key doesn't feel...

Cannot adjust inclinations

Awesome keyboard if you like Mac keyboards


I switch between Mac & PC a lot but have always preferred the Mac style keyboards.

Slim, stylish, love the black mac style. If your used to a Mac keyboard you will love this

Waste of money


I like the scissor switch keyboards like the Fatal1ty (discontinued), and the Logitech Illuminated keyboard. You can hit the scissor style keys at a slight angle and they will still work perfectly. They feel pretty alright, and don't make nearly as...

looks sleek, not bad key feel, media keys, full size, but small frame, USB slots could be useful for some ; I liked the simplicity and they key layout mostly. The Fn with the left hand and the media keys with the right. But, I'd prefer it was the...

The spacebar is probably the root of the problem. Mine came crooked. I'm not sure if it's missing the membrane under one side, but it's slanted in and seems to miss my strokes. So, it's slightly defective, and now I have to return it, unfortunately ; I...

excellent keyboard


The numlock and capslock light is bright and bleeds out, but it is neither a pro or con. This was $43+ 7 shipping when I bought it, now it is 35 w/free shipping. Boooooo!

I was looking for a PC version of the mac extended keyboard, and this is it ; The keys are nice and responsive, and the layout is the one that I prefer. The enter key is not an "L"; and the arrow keys & the home, end, etc keys are well spaced, not like...

Didn't work with my aging KVM switch (my old USB keyboard did) ; The USB ports on the sides are not recessed. If you plug a mouse into it, the plug sticks out at the side. If you have a wired mouse, this is less than ideal. as I keep my mouse directly...
