Split-spacebar design makes backspace more accessible, Comfortable layout, Sturdy wrist rest

Keys felt mushy and too deep, No key backlighting, Function and shortcut keys are small, half-height

While there was much to like about the overall design of the Sculpt Comfort Keyboard, we can recommend it only with reservations. For some, the key size and depth won't present an issue, but for others, it could be a deal breaker. We suggest a...

Basic keyboard - good price - new model has changed

 

This is a wired USB keyboard. I purchased a Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600 in November of 2011. It worked well, but I spilled coffee on it (which had a lot of sticky sugar) and the keys would on rare occasion stick and I would have to unplug the USB...

Low cost Simple without unnecessary frills Nice key action Spill resistant

Keys are not lighted

Great Keyboard.

 

Ive been using this since 12/11/2012, and I have not had any issues with it yet. The keys are pretty much standard so it feels very comfortable to use. It's quiet and easy to use.

Great kid resistant keyboard

 

Purchased this to replace a keyboard that had been fried by water damage. One month into ownership, my 4 year old spilled her juice on it while sitting in my lap. Cleaned it up and it still works 11 months later! This is a great basic keyboard at a...

Spill resistant! (My 3 kids and I can validate this!) Soft touch and quiet keys. Basic short cut keys are great for what I need. You can also download MS keyboard software to customize what the keys do.

None.

simple

 

for the seller, they have a great hustle for the payment process and getting it out the door for the mail to take over. the only issue i have, is again as stated in the cons is the paper paying wrapping. huge wade of brown thing paper on top of the...

Simple clean office look for a generic office. for my employees in this small business, it makes us feel a little larger. simple plug-n-play and no broken keys!!! holds up to the price being sold at 17$

none really. just the seller needs to put the stiff brown paper "around" the product not on top of it.. shipping is important. is the box fell on a corner and the bottom hit, well i wouldn't have a new keyboard to get to my employees. but the keyboard...
