Good but...

 

Well balanced and curvy slick. Small and shallow

Keys sit very low, like on a notebook. Mushy. There appears to be enough room to make the function keys full size yet they are half size

Good enough

 

Reliable. Very inexpensive. Key response good, but of course not as crisp and consistent as the best high price keyboards

Keys slightly wobbly. Doesn't harm anything. If it cost four times as much as it does I'd complain, but for the actual price it's OK

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
