Keyboard that lasts
Pros: Good key feel (even after years of use), multimedia keys, USB hub, durable
Cons: 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).
Other Thoughts: 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 keys I use most (the A key is the worst; very little of the white marking is still there), and the down volume button sometimes sticks. Overall the keyboard has held up better than any other keyboard I've ever used except the one from an IBM PC/AT.

Pros: Typical IBM/Lenovo keyboard feeling and styling. 2 Port USB hub integrated into keyboard. Quite a few useful buttons.
Cons: 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 there should be no issue. No driver updates available from lenovo or MS for this thing. Also, it's touchy. I always have to go over what I write to make sure a letter wasn't left off. No, that's not from typos, but rather from the keyboard deciding it wants to not output letters randonly. Happens about twice a day. Tried with 2 Lenovo desktops and same result.
Other Thoughts: 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.

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