4 out of 5 eggsDelivers what it claims

Pros: Bought this for my wife who loves her slimline keyboards. She is a writer and does an obscene amount of typing and usually ends up wearing out keyboards within a few months. I held off on the review a little to see how this one held up and so far it is doing great.

Cons: The price is a little high compared to other keyboards in this range, but it is made up for by the extra quality that this one seems to have compared to some others that we have had in the past.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat keyboard for a programmer

Pros: love the low-profile of this keyboard, excellent key feedback, makes a subtle and satisfying noise when you hit the keys.

this has probably been the best keyboard i've bought (i have a few logitech kbs and also a g15 and g19 for my gaming pcs)- for programming this is the best keyboard i have ever used simply because of the key placement- the page and and page down functions are actually useful the way they are placed (right next to the enter key, i can easily hit them with my middle or pinky finger to browse up and down sourcecode).

i bought 4 of these total (i recently built 2 pcs and i use 2 currrently, but the keyboard impressed me so much that i picked up a few extra ones after the first one came in just in case i can't find them when i need to replace a keyboard in the future).

a great keyboard and the price is great too. i dislike wireless keyboard because i find they aren't reliable.

Cons: the only con with this keyboard is that the usb cord is relatively short, it wouldn't reach my tower on the ground. i had to also buy a 5$ cord to extend the usb length another 3 feet.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little keyboard

Pros: Nice style, very slim and neat looking. Keys are just like those of a laptop, with short travel lengths and low profile, which I really prefer. Feels good and puts your hands at a decent angle when typing. Nicely done overall.

Cons: No caps lock or scroll lock indicators! Perhaps they could have put a small LED inside its key like is common on laptops....

Other Thoughts: Volume control buttons even worked out of the box with Linux, which was a nice surprise.

4 out of 5 eggsits nice

Pros: All i can say if your looking for a smooth transition from a laptop keyboard to a desktop BUY this. This thing can prolly get run over buy a mac truck and still work. i dumped my mountain dew on it and it still worked but was kinda sticky so i figured need to clean it out so i ran it under my faucet wiht hot water for about 5min didnt really have anything to lose, because i wasnt playing with a sticky keyboard, dried it off and presto it worked like new.

Cons: the picture for this is very misleading the keys dont light up its just a blue sticker on each key, plus there are no keys that tell you that ur caps key is on so thats annoying.

Other Thoughts: puts some lights on it for the indicators for caps and what not you cheap kensington PEOPLE, every keyboard in the world has those, I think, but i guess i got what i payed for.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing keyboard

Pros: Keys have much better response than most slim keyboards. Construction is solid. Low profile is more comfortable than other keyboards. Worked right out of the box on Win7x64, media keys and all. Types much faster than my old keyboard(was also laptop style, but had "mushy" keys)

Cons: Keys don't seem to come off, so crumbs could be troublesome if you got any stuck in it. I thought the blue lettering was LED, but it's just paint, worried about how quickly the letters might wear off. With the feet down, it kind of rattles against the desk.

Other Thoughts: Great keyboard for the price, stylish too. You won't regret getting it unless you prefer the big 80's style keyboards.

4 out of 5 eggslove this keyboard

Pros: pleasant clicking sounds and great key feel
slick low profile

Cons: dark lettering on keys can be hard to read in low light situations.

Other Thoughts: i replaced with a keyboard that has glowing keys. at night my office can get pretty dark, it was hard to read the blue text on the keyboard. i'm pretty good with the keyboard but would have to search for the f-keys or page up page down.

4 out of 5 eggsDepends what your looking for

Pros: Slim, nice soft keys, stylish, good brand

Cons: the key layout is the only problem honestly the Apple key isnt much of annoyance but its the home key its a lil too close for my taste and i hit it on accident sending the cursor back to the beginning lol

Other Thoughts: Impressive slim-ness and stylish quiet keys. the back bump is meh but adds character. If your looking for a laptop style board this is you but for large hands its not the best choice. impresses everyone who comes over and uses it though.

3 out of 5 eggsNon-Standard

Pros: Small and unobtrusive. This keyboard is more of a "show" keyboard and looks stylish. It's Mac compatible. Has volume controls which is convenient.

Cons: Where to begin? The keyboard looks good, but the keys themselves are in a non-standard layout to accomodate the size. The keys also feel like a cheap laptop keyboard. There's not a lot of travel (though admittedly some people like this) so don't expect to use this if your livelihood depends on lots of typing. There's no place to rest a pen, either. It also feels flimsy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: This is a great keyboard! I use it at work as my main keyboard, I use it 8-9 hours a day 5-6 days a week, so it has stamina as a keyboard as well.

Cons: It's a little heavy, that's all.
