Targus PAKB010U Black 104 Normal Keys USB Wired Standard Keyboard

 

Very nice keys. Soft to the touch. Comfortable on the wrists.All around good quality

What ruined this for me was the backspace. It is the size of a standard key unlike most keyboards where the backspace is larger. I found myself making several typing mistakes as I normally do, but whenever I tried to backspace it just made things...

Basic, no nonsense keyboard

 

I am a fan of the old school, tactile feel from keyboards, where the keys are kind of clacky and not mushy. This keyboard does have a little bounce to it, so when I first got it I was disappointed. But after prolonged use I found that the bounce does...

This keyboard is no nonsense, no frills, and that's the way keyboards should be. I was deciding between a gaming keyboard and this, and I decided to go with the classic keyboard. There's less that can go wrong. The keys have a little bounce to them,...

The only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is the price. For a standard keyboard with nothing fancy, I wouldn't expect to pay more then $15

Excellent keyboard

 

It is so nice to have a basic no frills keyboard. It seems like this is the only one.

A sturdy keyboard. I read the reviews of this being a flimsy keyboard and I decided to risk it and try it myself. I found it to be very sturdy. It is made of plastic but unless you want a keyboard made out of steel, I think this will be sturdy enough....

I tried it with a PS2 adaptor, did not work. May have been just my own experience though

Clean and Simple

 

While gamers and bling seekers should look elsewhere, I have found this to be a good no-frills product. It looks nice on my desk with a black monitor and black speakers. I'm sure there are boards with better feel for more money, but this one suits me...

Sleek black styling with a professional look to it. Keystroke feel is good, with tactile indent but without sponginess. A good choice if you type a lot. Takes up minimum space for a full-sized board

Housing is not sturdy enough for ham fisted typists, but those who touch-type won't care. Not as good as my old IBM PS-2 click-master from the 80's, but they won't work with modern PCs

Consumer review by:

Good

 

Works good, long cord, comfortable to type on ; L" shaped enter key

Legs that prop it up could be a bit more sturdy ; Did not work with my MSI S754 board but probably not the keyboard's fault

Consumer review by:

Too Flexible

 

There are other keyboards in the sea...

Nice clean look, small footprint for fullsize

Too flexible. Keyboard is all plastic and very light. The keyboard has no support in the center so it "bounces" as you type. Does not live up to my expectations

Consumer review by:

very nice

 

Smoothe, slightly resistive keys with good bounch return.

Consumer review by:

No-nonsense

 

If you're used to the backslash and backspace placement and just want a simple 104-key keyboard, this is EXACTLY what you want.

It's a keyboard. No crazy extra function keys to worry about. Minimal desk footprint. Wrist rest detatchable

As stated, any deviation from your known key arrangement can cause a little initial confusion
