Pros: Well, I needed a PS-2 Keyboard with a Built-In PS-2 Track-Ball, and this fit the bill nicely. Solid Feel, I like the way it 'Feels' typing - Not 'Cheap' or 'Mushy' at all - I really like the size, positioning, and feel of the Track-Ball overall, and the Big 'L-Shaped' Enter Key & Big Backspace Key were Very Welcome - I HATE the tiny ones. Feels SOLID, like it will last forever - No Cheap Feel here!
Cons: Cons - Well, there's the obvious - The Price! I mean, sure, it's a Premium Keyboard, very solid, with a Track-Ball, but come on! About Fifty Dollars higher than a similar KeyTronics Keyboard, without the Track-Ball? Also, they chose to place the 'Back-Slash' ( \ ) Key to the RIGHT of the Right-Hand Shift Key - Very Odd, and took a while to get used to. No Multimedia Keys, and the Track-Ball uses Old-School Roller Technology. See 'Other Thoughts'
Other Thoughts: OK, time for a confession - I'm a VERY Loyal NewEgg Customer - For Computer Stuff, they're my First and usually Last Stop - Not this time! ::hangs head in shame:: I LOVE their selection & services, and their prices are USUALLY unbeatable, but I just couldn't justify THAT much money for a keyboard - I found one 'Open-Box' elsewhere, for less than half price - But, I'm glad I bought it! I run 4 computers through a PS-2 KVM Switch (haven't found the 'Right' USB Model; PS-2 is Fast & Reliable!), and I really NEEDED a Track-Ball Keyboard, and this is ALMOST Perfect! I added easier-to-see keyboard labels, and added white paint to the ring around the ball & the mouse buttons for visibility. Also, I wish they hadn't put the Back-Slash to the Right of the Shift Key, and I would have preferred an Opto-Electric Track-Ball, but frankly, this really feels Good, overall!
