Quality going down


Nice layout

Quality has suffered over the years. This is not the sturdy keyboard of 5 to 10 years ago under the same model code

Best keyboard for the price


One of the best no frills keyboards around. Simple and rugged, its taken years of gaming from me and still feels great pulling off 120+ wpm. Keytronic has, and still does, keep the quality up and the price

Good Inexpensive Keyboard


I have owned this for 18 months.

Cheap. Positive action. Decent feel

The keys are a little wobbly

Works well!


I purchased some of these to use with USB KVMs in server racks, where a mousing surface isn't really available. These work perfectly with the KVMs, and the trackball does the trick.

Only one USB connector, easy to pass between machines

None that I can think of

Made a mistake


WHY DID YOU HAVE A HORRIBLE DESIGN CHOICE. I bought this from @mazon not newegg D:

Ok, so this keyboard is pretty nice to type on

Ok, the stupid backspace key is 1 space which isn't life ending, but what is life ending is that the "\" key is on the left of it. Ok I am used to hitting plus there, and I always use the "\" key, so now it's in a horrible spot. And it REALLY slows me...

Can't beat 'em for the $$


These are without question my keyboard of choice. You can spend lot more and get pretty, or dedicated buttons, or more bling, but you won't get a more solid, more reliable keyboard. I beat the heck out of mine and it just keeps on working.

Great feel, no nonsense layout, solid, reliable, inexpensive...what more do you need

Zero. Zip. Nada

They work well and they work for a long time

After a couple of years of very heavy use the lettering on the keys will fade

Heavy Duty Fail


I realized I dislike two things about this keyboard that I didnt expect, I dont like a huge return key and I dont like a small backspace key. I will take those into account when I look to correct this purchase with another keyboard.

There are no media-related keys that take up space. Very simple keyboard the way I like it. It types well, not soft. Those kinda things you really have to learn by usage anyway

One of my requirements was to be sturdy, at this price, I expected it to be. Upon eye inspection and simple touch, it feels heavy duty. Put your hands on either end of the keyboard and twist, it twists very easy

Black, inexpensive, rugged, 104 keys, no stupid useless media keys. For the money you won't be disappointed.

I owned the PS2 version of this keyboard for over 8 years. In that time I logged countless gaming hours. This keyboard has handled all the abuse I could dish out, including several frustrated beatings. If you are looking for a no-nonsense, rugged,...

Some people may complain about the tiny backspace key. If you are that poor of a typer, I recommend you practice. The only real "con" about this keyboard is you have to mod it yourself if you want it to glow
