Consumer review (



I don't have any problems using it, but some of my friends who use it don't like it.

Nice flat, compact design. Good if you are used to typing on a laptop

Area around the arrow keys is a bit cramped. Right shift key is tiny. Not for someone who likes tall keys

the print of key A and D peeling off


Mine didn't come with PS2 connector as advertised, but who cares?

The same as the last reviewer. (I am the last reviewer.)

The print on my A and D have peeled off after two days of non-stop FPS game. (hehe quater ended) I never have to look the keyboard while Im typing, but that makes it doesn't look cool

not bad


I use this keyboard for FPS game and it replace my "old" Saitek Eclipse. It works pretty well and I love it much more than Saitek's. I found use slim keyboard would make you response faster than full size keyboards in FPS game. However, fingers won't...

It feels exactly like a laptop keyboard. Nice Quality

The left SHIFT is too small. The left WINDOW is completely useless, I would like to remove that Win Key to make room for SHIFT. Besides, PgDn and PgDn are commonly used keys, it would be better to separate these two keys

Strange problem


Like chris heath down there, I use FEDS for gaming, and I faced the same problem as him. I decided to attach this to my media pc, so I wouldn't always need to use my kvm to switch over and control it, but still, I need to buy another keyboard to use...

Pretty, small

High class low priced keyboard


Once I got used to the squished shift and arrow keys, this is the best keyboard I have ever owned.

This keyboard is sleek, slim and has an incredibly good action on the individual keys. I receive compliments about it all the time

The single biggest complaint I have about this keyboard is that the right shift key is teeny. This WILL take some getting used to. I found it very frustration for the first two weeks using it. My typo count went up drastically

AOpen S-500 2-Tone 100 Normal Keys 13 Function Keys USB or PS/2 Wired Standard MULTIMEDIA Keyboard


Very silent, I use this for FPS gaming on the time, and the only bother I have had is the buttons being crammed together. But it's easy to mess with the key config to get it working well. The last review mentioned the hump under the spacebar, but I...

I was searching for a ps/2-usb semi-compact keyboard for my notebook dock and saw this model. It responds well and feels solid. Fast shipping by NewEgg. Multimedia keys interfaced with my notebook with no additional drivers.

AOpen S-500 2-Tone 100 Normal Keys 13 Function Keys USB or PS/2 Wired Standard MULTIMEDIA Keyboard


I bought this to use with an Acer laptop and it is a PERFECT match (color, keys and everything). XP identifies everything in it, including extra keys, once connected. No need to find drivers elsewhere. Super quality keyboard.

This is a wonderful keyboard, wafer thin! Sleek design, beautiful feel and touch. The key feel is amazingly quiet and light. Really like the blue L.E.D. lights and multimedia functions on the upper rim of the board, would definitely recommend. A+++
