Simple keyboard

 

It's a simple keyboard, usually listed as for a great price. I use it for MMOing all the time and have never encountered an issue with the keys. Despite the only con listed below (pretty sure its just a fluke), I'd definitely recommend the keyboard

One leg seems to be slightly shorter than the other with mine. I usually keep a piece of junk mail underneath it and that takes care of that. Didn't seem like something worth sending it back in for, since I'd be without a keyboard. Havent had this...

So far so good

 

Replaced my old ps2 usb logitech keyboard I've been using for about 5 years. It didn't break it was just a small keyboard not ment for what I was doing. Lets see if microsoft can build something that will outlive it.

Delivered in 3 days ; Very quite keyboard ; Worked out of box ; No problems so far

None so far lets see how long it lasts tho

Basic, but perfect

 

If you want a basic wired keyboard and mouse this is perfect. Relatively small size and light, works great

No bells or whistles whatsoever. But that's fine if all you want is a basic mouse and keyboard

nice basic keyboard and mouse

 

You can spend more on a keyboard and mouse but they will not do anything any better. Put your money into something that matters.

This is a nice basic keyboard and mouse set. The keyboard does not take up too much room and the mouse feels about right

Hmm...could not find any cons

Consumer review by:

basic and cheap

 

No shortcut keys like volume control. I like the MS comfort curve 2000 better but it costs more. Sorry kids that you get this basic one ;)

Low cost ; This gave me more money to spend on CPU and memory instead

Cheap Chinese plastic VOC smell for a day or two
