Not a good keyboard


Well packed comes in a nice box. Can connect to usb or ps2 socket. Keyboard feels light and flimsy. It has no substance. Keys are very light also if you like that sort of thing. Not a nice keyboard. Have purchased half a dozen cheap keyboards from...

Perfect keyboard

Solid Keyboard


No nonsense USB keyboard. Bought to replace annoying logitech internet keyboard. I dont miss the media keys at all. I personally like the keys as they are soft but you can tell when youve pressed them.
