KeyTronic CLASSIC-P2

 

decent membrane keyboard

overpriced membrane keyboard

critical layout for programming, repair free

 

this has the split-right-shift and \| to right of that. makes programming and commandline FAR easier and safer than with a standard 104-key keyboard. I bang on my keyboards and this thing has been pretty good, nice solid feel I like. this is the UK 105...

had to repair 2 keyboards of 4 had spacebar needed to be redone. shipping cost $18, repair cost free wand they pay the cost of shipping back, so that' nice. I think it's why they call it the lifetime series, they will repair it for a lifetime? a large...

Looks great, terrible to use!

 

I mostly game and don't type a whole lot. Once I'm in a game I can forget how bad the keys feel, but typing is so bad, I've already ordered a mechanical board. It'll be my first one, hopefully I like it. At ~35$ it's not quite worth the effort an RMA,...

Appearance and layout are easily 5 eggs. I picked it out because it's got a nice, plain, old-school look that I feel at home with. I'd hoped it would have that old-school feel, or at least be as good as my old, (and I do mean old, it was a Packard...

The keys are so hopelessly wimpy. I didn't read the description of the "Ergo Tech" closely enough. All the letter keys must be the lowest resistance at ~35 grams, and wobbly to boot. If all the keys felt like the stiffer F1-12 and NumPad keys, I would...

Okay

 

Keyboards work for a while. The most used key will fail first. This keyboard worked for a long while. Plain solid keyboard with no shortcut keys. Most of the keys don't torque, so they feel crisp. There is no gaming ghosting. Key depression is rather...

The keys that failed first were left ctrl, and right numpad +...but this thing with broken keys feels so much better than 1X$ buck JEE keyboards... that i just keymapped around the use broken keys for a while. I am buying another-- not cheap, not perfect.

Less typing mistakes!

 

Nice to see that KeyTronic still makes good stuff.

As a VERY picky keyboardist, the more I type on this thing, the fewer keystroke mistakes I make. Simple, no frills, keyboard that makes me want to type on it. Have typed on old keyboards with a better final "thunk" at the end of the stroke, but this...

Only four stars since it isn't absolutely "the best" keyboard I've ever used. Right hand Shift Key could be wider.

The best keyboard value

 

It bugs a number of other reviewers (see the USB version), but I find the placement of the '\|' key to be one of the best features of this line of keyboards. In Linux (my primary OS) and in programming the bar symbol '|' is used constantly, and I find...

I now have three of these keyboards, one for work, one for home and one as a spare. IMO these are the best value keyboards on the market--no silly multimedia keys, a great feel, and a long key lifetime. The first one I bought four years ago is still...

Although the lettering on each key is molded in, it does fade over time. Not so much that you can't see it, but more of a medium gray as opposed to white. The difference is noticeable when you compare the CAPS LOCK key to the SHIFT key, for example....

Nothing special IMHO

 

It works and is black so it matches the rest of my equipment.

I was expecting a lot more based on what I have heard about these keyboards and the price. Overall, there is nothing special about this keyboard that I can see or feel. I feel like I wasted my money on this purchase.

Keytronic Works

 

Keytronic keyboards will probably outlast your computer.

Great keyboard, wonderful 'feel'!

The price... but I buy them anyways because they feel good to type on and they NEVER stop working.
