Consumer review (newegg.com)

My favorite keyboard EVER!

 

Slim, clicky, cheap

A, S, and D key labels have rubbed off because of heavy gaming use, but it's okay because I don't need the labels

Perfect for the price.

 

I bought this because there was a instant savings deal on it. Got it for a great price and it's a good keyboard. My only grief is those LEDs, I think I'll just put something over them to tone them down.

Slim, laptop style keys, doesn't need drivers, overall nice design

The LEDs for num lock, caps lock and scroll lock are extremely bright and blue which bothers my eyes. Reminds me of an LED flashlight

I am the Key Master

 

I would like it better if it wasn't slim, but I knew it was when I bought it so I can't complain.

Blue LEDS, working keys, and slim to boot

Had a little scratch on it beneath the windows button, but hey what's a scratch

You get what you pay for

 

You get what you pay for.

Looks and feels like a laptop keyboard, minus the compact physical dimensions. But the keys feel like I expected

Misses keys sometimes. And I don't mean I miss keys due to the feeling of it, I mean I can hit the return key twice very quickly and I only get one return on the screen. It's cheap. Spend more and get a better product

A good one!

 

For 7 bucks, I can't go wrong. It's sturdy, matches my current set-up and again, is compact and very quiet. Great purchase!

Very quiet - Has the laptop keys, so it produces next to no sound. Not like your typical keyboard ; Slim - Extremely thin design. No more than .5in thick ; Feels to be of really good quality. Extremely happy with it

None to speak of. I've not experienced any of the problems people have mentioned with the lights yet, but I guess give it some time and we'll see what happens

Sleek and cheap

 

Very pleased with my purchase. Cheap and cost effective without sacrificing quality.

Quiet, good key placement, overall good quality for the price. Also very easy to type at on either height(unlike a previous review said). Got compliements from all my friends when they saw it, which is great considering how inexpensive it was

The only issue i had was with the S key. It was not reacting properly when prssed, it would not pop up in the same way. This was causing me to type a lot of ssss by accident as it would press with slight pressure. However, after removing and putting...

Great Basic Keyboard

 

LEDS for the num lock, caps and scroll a wild shade of blue.

Plugged in USB and has worked like a charm since. If your used to the old IBM style "click" keys you may not like the keys on this board ; The keys are more low profile and have less travel. I myself prefer typing on this style of keys

None so far

Great keyboard overall

 

It's a good keyboard overall, and well worth a few small defects, especially for the great price.

This keyboard is very quiet, and (once I got used to it) improved my speed a bit. It's impossible to use flat, but the stands on the back are just the right height

The LEDs on it are unreliable; the NumLock LED went out within a day of me owning the keyboard. Some of the keys are also slightly misplaced, for example if I push the spacebar on the left side then the spacebar goes down at an angle and doesn't...

good keyboard

 

Comes with fairly standard keys up top, although some of them don't work right out of the box (which is no big deal because about the only one I use is the sleep key)

Fully functional full-size keyboard. The keys are laptop-style (low profile). They give good feedback. This is a great way to give your PC that "laptop feel" or for an extra keyboard for your laptop

Don't get this if you want a standard-feel keyboard. Could be a con if you don't like laptop keyboards
