Meh.....

 

Been using these classic keyboards for about 15 years, but I have to agree with some of the others~ they wear out. I'm willing to live with them, however, because I love their heft (they don't move around on the desk) and their key action (sort of feel...

Solid, heavy-duty feeling, love the key action

They wear out

Great when it doesn't have problems

 

Great keyboard - only thing is keys start going out pretty quickly, at least for me. It says lifetime series... I wish I could get it replaced :[

I like the look of this keyboard, and the feel of the keys. The keys are spaced apart just right. Some keyboards don't do this correctly and you'll end up hitting keys you don't mean to hit. Not this keyboard. Also, they have that nice slightly curved...

Bottom left control key went out few months after I had it. Which is very very bad since that ctrl key is what you use to open tabs, copy/paste, etc.... Really a pain to use the other ctrl key now. Also the Page up/Page down keys quit working. There...

KeyTronic CLASSIC-U2 Black 104 Normal Keys USB Standard Keyboard

 

Solid build. Quality feel

The Backspace button does not register about half the time. There are some cosmetic blemishes in the finish from poor plastic injection molding

Quality but...

 

I know I could get a wrist rest separately if I want one so bad, but I hate those kind that are not attached to the board, they never stay put. Not to mention I constantly shift my board around depending on if I am typing a lot or gaming, etc.

Solid, quality keyboard with no frills or gimmicks. Does not have a virtual mouse or any of that garbage built in that causes extra devices in device manager. Multiple buttons can be pressed while gaming

There is no wrist rest included! This is not a $12 keyboard. It should have a decent cord and a wrist rest for thirty some dollars ; Cord is about 1-2 feet shorter than most. Will not even reach from my desktop (center) to directly next to the desk if...

Finally a Real Keyboard

 

Old non-curved, non ergonomic design, but that's just a personal preference. Kind of pricey for a basic keyboard. But no other manufacturer makes one like it and with the same key layout. Hope mines lives up to the reputation of it's claimed durability.

Crisp keystrokes, Not one of those want to be mushy laptop key boards. Key layout is the classic L shaped enter key with long easy to reach backspace key. I have been looking for one of these keyboards after going through countless garbage keyboards...

Painted on letters are not uniformly white, looks like poor paint mixing quality or just dirty equipment used for painting the keys

Old school rules

 

Ergo doesn't mean you can adjust the force on each key. Different zones of the board are set differently: http://www.keytronic.com/home/products/Ergo%20Technology%20graphic.htm

I love the old-school key action. Sturdy and reliable. Lifetime warranty

The "ergo" takes a little getting used to, and until you adjust to it you might not be using enough force with certain keys

Good product overall

 

Good solid keyboard

The right shift key is a bit smaller then on previous keyboards . Hard to get used to

An Improved Classic

 

The key touch is fantastic. Light yet definitive. The "Ergo" feature, variable key resistance, is a nice upgrade from the older (AT) style boards. Miles ahead of the "minimalist" keyboard shipped with my new Dell. Worth the extra bucks

The "|\" key is in a different spot. No biggee. I always have to look when I use the character keys anyway
