Nice Keyboard

 

Otherwise, it's nice and fine for me, taking into account my typing ability. No major issues. I recommend it for light to medium use or for hard-handed typists plus its multimedia functions. I can't live without a mute button! Have not tried any real...

Probably one of the nicest looking keyboards you can get and pretty solid overall. Multimedia keys! All worked great including ones for e-mail, home, etc. Weighs next to nothing. Cord length not a problem for me

I am a two finger hunt and peck person. After just two or three months, three or so keys started to stick and get a touch squeaky, for lack of a better description. After a bit longer, one or three more joined in. Cleaning around them with a q-tip and...

AKB-130PS

 

Would work well for those you have the puter right next to or below the keyboard. Otherwise think about getting an extension cord.

All the multimedia and power management keys work in ubuntu 8.04. ( used one of the a4tech keyboard layouts) ; Keys have a good tactile feel. Low noise operation

As far as I am concerned a seriously short cord. Couldn't put keyboard in its slide out drawer and reach the back of the computer to plug it it in. The puter is on the right end of the desk about 2.5 feet from the keyboard. Had to use a ps2 cord...

It's a PS/2 Keyboard -- A Vey Nice One

 

It's been very hard to find a decent PS/2 keyboard for the past few years without having to buy a USB keyboard that includes a large, unwieldy USB-to-PS/2 adapter (which feel like they could easily snap the PS/2 mini-DIN socket off the motherboard)....

Has a decent "touch" -- fairly quiet without key clatter or rattle -- and *much* better made than any other pure PS/2 keyboard I've used in the past couple years. Has a reasonably solid feel to its construction. Fit and finish of its parts is well...

These don't bother me, but others might consider them (why I put them in the "Cons" section) ; Stroke is about 2/3rd that of a traditional desktop keyboard with slightly shorter key caps. Tilt with the legs extended isn't quite as much as a traditional...

Great but needed some tweaking

 

I really like the feel of this keyboard. It's solid and doesn't make that loud 'klickity-klack' noise. I'm sure my Shift key issue was a rare occurrence, but for that reason I gave a rating of 4/5.

Compact, attractive, nice quiet action on the keys. I like the large Enter key and the overall key layout (I prefer the Delete, End, Pg. Down etc. keys to be in 3 colums and not two).

The right shift key required an abnormal amount of pressure to activate, so I decided to open up the keyboard and have a look. I believe the pad that makes contact with the membrane was sliding back into the recess of the key and not applying enough...

Good Keyboard

 

Very nice looking and feeling keyboard. I've gotten compliments on just how nice it looks. But mostly they are people who are used to the Dell keyboards that our school uses. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a good keyboard under $20

Nice colors. I don't think I have ever seen anybody go wrong with silver and black 2-tone on anything. The keys are nice and strong so you don't get a lot of mistakes while typing at a fast speed. It feels like it should be a lot louder then what it...

1: The black mirror finish at the top shows dust easily

Great

 

I accidentally pressed the Power key when I was going for the F12 key. Boom! My computer shut off. lol

Great keyboard. Silent keys, nice layout and the Enter and Backspace sizes.

The book doesn't say how to use the Fn key. Does anyone know?

ADESSO AKB-130PS Black/Silver 104 Normal Keys 8 Function Keys PS/2 Wired Standard Multimedia Keyboard

 

Feels nice and matches my computer case

Keys around the oversized enter key are a little different

Solid keyboard

 

You get what you pay for, and I'd definitely purchase this board again.

They keys themselves are solid feeling, responsive, and overall easy to work with. The media buttons are "fun" to press, and there isn't useless shortcuts to everything you never use anyways.... The simplicity

The giant enter key is different than what I'm used to in a key layout. The backspace and right shift button can be a pain at times because of their positions. My biggest quarrel with this board, would be the backspace button, I can't just throw my...

The best keyboard i ever owned

 

Matches my monitor and my desktop, as well as my speakers and my mouse, perfectly!!!

Space consuming keyboard. A lot of the keyboards i see are so huge and have so many useless features. This has all the basic stuff plus the 8 shortcut buttons on top, i love the way they feel especially the Play/Pause button. I also love the black and...
