3 out of 5 eggsI should have bought something else.

Pros: It looks great. It has a usb-ps2 adapter.

Cons: The keys are extreamly large. So much in fact I stopped using it and have yet to find anyone that will take it for free.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap vibrations, but still very good

Pros: Very comfortable typing experience, with a great layout. Feels almost exactly like a laptop, with shallow keystrokes and good tactile feedback. Sleek, slim, and low-profile. High-tech look.

Cons: Keyboard resonates and flexes during typing, making it feel and sound a little cheap, and not as solid as a laptop. It sounds like two thin pieces of metal tapping agqainst each other.

Other Thoughts: The entire keyboard and keys are silver, and the band across the top is silver-grey with a slight hint of purple. The resonance and flexing are the only faults in an otherwise excellent design. I'll probably learn to ignore it. The keyboard feels good enough that I'm willing to try.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice keyboard

Pros: The keyboard looks very nice, and the keys are very responsive. The keyboard is very slim, but is still pretty durable. The laptop-style keys give a very tactile response, but the keys are still full-size.

Cons: Takes a little getting used to, though a lot less time than most laptop keyboards.

5 out of 5 eggsslick and sexy

Comments: i bought this as an addon for my sony vaio TR2. i attach a 19inch monitor and mouse to my laptop when i am at home. I've very happy with it and the keyboard has the "laptop feel." as matter fact the key placement is identical the to laptopkb. only down side to it is that it doesn't have stands on the end to slant the keyboard, so it lay flat on the desk. its about 3/4 inches tall.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: This keyboard is pretty good, I haven't had much keyboards, but this one is pretty good, its just like a laptop keyboard, the only problem so far is that one button is squaking a little bit, and when I hit enter, or shift too fast, I hit the wrong key, being used to my previous one. This keyboard is definately worth a try.

4 out of 5 eggsSilvery little bugger.

Comments: First off, the picture here is somewhat misleading. It makes the keyboard look as if the bulk of the board is the typical off white of most peripherals, when in actuality the board is a moderately shiney silver.

But not a real big deal. The poster below me did say something about it being silver (I was thinking the gray parts in the picture were what was silver...nope, those are gray), so it's not like I was terribly shocked. ;) Fortunately I also go a new Optorite mouse which has silver on it, along with this KB. So all is good. Now I just gotta get a silver LCD when it's time to upgrade this CRT. Curse you NewEgg. =)

Now for the rest of the review:

This board is deffinately slim; naturally. The rear height of the board is about 2cm, so it also sits completely flat on your desk. And coming from my old Logxxxch keyboard, which was at a reasonable slant, this will take a little getting used to. I've been typing on this new board for about 20 minutes now, and I'm already typing better. When I first started I was missing keys all over the place and constantly looking down to make sure I was hitting the ones I wanted.

Since the board is so slim, if you're a button-masher, it will flex just a bit with your keystrokes in the middle. Not a whole lot, since it sits so close to the table top. Just don't abuse it and you should be fine.

Can't think of anything real negative to say about this board. I'm deffinately liking it so far.

Though, I am hoping the silver finish is nice and durable. Looks pretty rugged from what I can tell. A friend has a mouse with a similar finish...it now basically has a hand-print on it due to the paint wearing off.

I'll pop back in if the W, A, S, D keys start to wear off. ;)

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost awesome

Comments: Keyboard is light, amazingly slim, and great looking (unless you are not so much into silver). Furthermore, the responsive keys make it the best feeling board I've ever typed on. If you are not used to the layout of a laptop keyboard, this may take a little getting used to, but it otherwise seems very natural.
I've only had two major issues, and one of those is based on preferences. As far as actual flaws are concerned, the board's front middle body is level with and hinders depression of the spacebar. This will probably take some getting used to, especially for those with larger hands (I was having issues for the good part of a week). The other issue is the placement of the function keys on the far right (excluding the number pad). Delete feels like it should be where Insert has been placed; but despite being one of the more important keys (as far as my preferences go) it has been placed on the upper right out of reach. Also, the separation of the Home and End keys is also bothersome. Their placement almost drove me crazy until I worked up the motivation to remap them through the registry. With those two problems out of the way, I've never been so comfortable or quick when typing (the wrists were hinting at carpal tunnel with my older board).
