back to basics

 

If you need solid basic keyboard, this is it!

1. Basis keyboard without "extra' keys ; 2. After 5 year of heavy daily use and countless coffee spills, works like new ; 3. PS/2, does not need USB

NO

A steal for the price

 

This keyboard is solid. It has a smooth keystroke with a soft feel, making it almost silent when typing. I couldn't be happier with it

Whoa

 

WOOT more green lights

This keyboard is a well made keyboard without any extra bells and whistles. It works perfectly, the keys are quiet and press nicely. Good quality cable, standard layout and a nice finish

This thing is only $6.99!?

 

The keyboard being PS/2 could come as a con OR pro. I personally see it as a pro. I know I've heard of some motherboards that still need a PS/2 keyboard for the BIOS so this might come in handy. On top of that... PS/2 always always always works and I'm...

Alright so how is it that a $6.99 keyboard comes with an excellent stroke feel, texture and overall build quality and then companies like Saitek that charge 6 times as much for their fancy pants light up keyboards manage to have problems with quality...

Not a single diddly doodly one! ...Maybe the cost of shipping? Ironic that I payed more for that than the keyboard

Great value, but not quality

 

The keys are less than ideal. They don't make a hard click when pressed, they sort of slide into a press and slide back out. My roommate described it as a "sticky" feeling. I don't know if that makes sense, but if you've ever used a keyboard like this...

Soooo cheap, normal key layout (not the old layout with the gigantic "Enter" and the tiny "Backspace")

Keys are kind of...."sticky

Fantastic keyboard

 

Buy this keyboard instead of wasting your money on more expensive keyboards. Word to the wise: if you type more than 40-50wpm, you'll hate wireless keyboards, because they often miss keys. If you're debating between something expensive and this, get...

This is an amazing keyboard. Another reviewer used the terms 'quintessential' and 'zen master of keyboards', and I would quite agree. The keys are nearly silent, and they require just the right amount of pressure to depress. It doesn't have a bunch of...

I still have to use my fingers

Surprisingly good

 

If your looking for a basic keyboard and don't use all the fancy audio stuff, this one is worth the price.

Simple black keyboard with no logo's on it. Good texture feel to it

None for this price

Consumer review by:

Really really nice!

 

For the price, this is a fantastic, easy to use, comfortable keyboard! You can't go wrong with this purchase

PS2 only, no usb

IT'S DECENT

 

It works fine. Decent sensitivity, and it's quiet to type on ; Quiet operation ; Back-space key is the correct size! (Other kybds have a small key)

NONE

Non-rice keyboard

 

It's loud. This didn't go in the cons section because being loud is part of being a disc drive.

It's a keyboard. It's fairly quiet, it doesn't have bright lights, it doesn't have bright colors, it doesn't have ANY logos ; This is exactly what I look for in a keyboard. I want it to sit on my desk and do everything it can to not draw attention

None
