Classic Quality


I am really enjoying my new keyboard. I will note that the picture says IBM but on the actually keyboard it says lenovo which is great for me because my computer is a lenovo. I see my self using this keyboard for a few years. It is very sturdy. The...

Keyboard that lasts


I have used this keyboard for around five years. I have used it on four computers, each of which was my primary computer at the time, so that should tell you something. The only problems after all this time are dirt, the markings wearing off of the...

Good key feel (even after years of use), multimedia keys, USB hub, durable

On my older model, USB hub is only 1.1. Not sure if it's 2.0 now. Also, the shortcut keys need to have the app installed for them to work (the multimedia keys work out of the box)

Unless your desktop doesn't have a PS/2 port, don't buy this thing. It's just not stable enough for normal use. Get a good old fashioned PS/2 keyboard that won't fail.

Typical IBM/Lenovo keyboard feeling and styling. 2 Port USB hub integrated into keyboard. Quite a few useful buttons

I'm running Vista Business 32-Bit and I'll be darned if this keyboard likes it. The controller software for the hot buttons always crashes and renders the buttons (I mostly just use the volume control) useless. I am using it with a Lenovo Desktop so...

Solid Keyboard


Well built keyboard. usefull shortcuts without going overboard. USB hub is nice for mouse. works in well in Gentoo Linux

When using with XP 64-bit version, it did not work until the drivers were installed (which means a PS2 keyboard/mouse is needed to login)

Just what I was hoping.


None really, a keyboard is a keyboard.

Feels just like a think pad keyboard, which is great for those few of us who love them. The track point is absolutely the best I've used across many laptops, it'll save desk space... and it comes with a nifty leather carrying case. There is also a...

Very expensive

Poor build quality


When I switched from my T42 to T61, I also noticed a slight downgrade in keyboard quality. Something in the key travel was off in the t61, and made me uncomfortable. This slight difference was not too noticeable, but definitely there. But compared with...

slim ; ultranav ; matches your thinkpad in the dock ; I recently purchased one to use with my T61 while docked. Paying a premium for that 'thinkpad feel,' I must say I was deeply disappointed. I was expecting great, but only to the extent that it...

cheap plastic casing ; too much flex ; variable key travel ; The best way I can describe it is a cheap build quality. I don't know, this keyboard has been out quite a while, but maybe they switched manufacturers? The keys have a distinct 'cheap clicky'...

Bought it from a thrift store for 2$


For the money, it was in brand new condition. It is amazing. Good keys. Mechanical in general. Also it takes a bit of getting used to, but it's very easy to maneuver your fingers around on and to type on, and for gaming it's ok.
