4 out of 5 eggsProbably keep it till the letters wear off

Pros: Sturdy construction with good heft.

While not any louder than my old Logitech the keystrokes are a bit higher pitched. This may make it seem louder.

The USBs are nice, if a bit cramped.

Cons: The lip around the top of the keyboard means you won't be using any fat USB devices with it without an extender or hub of some sort.

This keyboard does seem a bit taller than my last one, making it awkward to rest my wrists on the desk as I type.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard helped me realize how clumsy of a typist I am, and hopefully I'll get used to the sensitivity quickly.

2 out of 5 eggsalmost.

Pros: Good Quality build and good price for what it claims to be.

Cons: Very heavy key switches with metallic ring when a key press bottoms out.
Not a pleasant typing experience. I wish it was.
The PS/2 to USB adapter that i received did not work.

Other Thoughts: Not ideal for most modern motherboards, though i would like to see the PS/2 port on any new MB.

Using for a few months now and i am convinced the specs are not correct. I searched for a few weeks on this product , the most reputable sites all say the MKB 135B uses CherryMX Blue key switches. I do not think that is correct, this feels like it could be 90cN...

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Simple but aesthetically pleasing. Good design , no need to adjust heights .
This thing is tough, It has fallen to the floor a few times and it is more likely to damage whatever it may impact then vise versa. Seriously though the build quality is exceptional.
Very tactile feel and each key stroke is complimented with that cherrymx blue click.

Cons: Blue LED Numlock is is very bright. It shines though a USB flash drive somewhat.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: It is a solid keyboard and has some weight. The feet are great no sliding at all. It is a keyboard that has the feel of an old time keyboard. Think data entry keyboards.

Cons: Little disappointed that one of the keys sticks a little already. Figure I'll give it a few more days to see if it corrects itself before contacting Adesso.

Other Thoughts: As you can see the Y key still registers, but it sits a little lower than the other keys. A couple of taps and it is flush again. Replaced an old Microsoft non mechanical keyboard.

4 out of 5 eggsearly impressions

Pros: So it does have that tactile feel of Cherry MX blue, which i am pretty sure that is what the MKB -135 is equipped with.
Heavy, i like the weight lets me know it is probably expensive to make.
Has minimalist design and is aesthetically pleasing while having a solid build quality. really solid, i mean who needs a ball bat by the door now.
all in all for the price there is not to much that is on par or better.

Cons: Not quite standard size. The "Full Size " is kind of a big selling point for me as i wanted that simple standard shape and familiarity of other keyboards i used. Sadly that is not the case as it the keys are not the same size nor are in the same position as a "Standard" design.
Some keys bottom out with more ease and have a metallic ring that is quite audible.

Other Thoughts: This is the last one for me that i am going to try, the last one was a G710 plus and i really disliked it but returning these things is too much of a hassle so i will keep this and hopefully like it as much as the other reviews stated they did.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Keyboard

Pros: Full NKRO when used with the PS/2 adapter. High quality mechanical keyboard for a low cost. Pretty resilient keyboard, other than the feet.

Cons: Only 6KRO with USB. Feet are flimsy - about the same as the majority of other keyboards on the market. The audio passthrough on the keyboard seems to add noise to anything passing through it.

Other Thoughts: Best value for money full size mechanical keyboard that I am aware of. Compares nicely to $200+ keyboards.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Developer Keyboard

Pros: Great tactile feedback
Fantastic key feel
USB hub!
Headphone and mic jacks
Defaults the function keys as function keys
Standard layout, no goofy key placement
Multi-media functions available

Cons: Nothing major, only a tiny nitpicks:Needs an (included) adapter to hook up as USB (Default is PS/2)

Other Thoughts: This was the first mechanical keyboard that I ever purchased. I loved it, and have purchased 3 more for various computers. Honestly, I didn't realize the gem that I had until I recently tried a few other mechanical keyboards. As I use the others, I daydream about the near-perfect key feel on this keyboard. When I'm using these, I am consistently impressed with how much faster and more accurate that I can type with these Cherry Browns that with other key switches. They improve my typing almost "magically"

If you use multiple computers throughout your week, you owe it to yourself to replace all your keyboards with this gem. You'll thank me.

The low price, the ultra-convenient USB hub and audio jacks, and media control keys really seal the deal. No other keyboard has all of those.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Excellent quality, feel.
Sturdy.

Cons: None to speak of.

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent keyboard. A friend of mine bought a more familiar name brand at the same time, and this is a better quality keyboard. It's awesome to type on, and ruins normal membrane keyboards.

It is a bit heavy, but it isn't as though you're going to be playing catch with it, so that shouldn't be a con.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat low-end mechanical keyboard

Pros: Springy feel.

Click-clacky sound.

USB hub, microphone, and headphone jacks.

"Lighter" key presses than a Model-M.

Very slight shimmer/pearl dark gray "piano" finish. I'm a person that loves to walk through Ikea and touch all the items on display. This passes my test.

Double-size BKSP key, ENTER key slightly larger than double-size and on one row, and a weird 1.5-key-sized pipe key. This is how all layouts should be.

Fantastic legs. These things are double-wide and have a rubber-coating to keep from slipping. Plus, the legs raise the rear of the keyboard up at least 8cm compared to maybe 1cm that current keyboards might make.

Cons: Picky personal preference warning: All of the keys are kind of shallow in reference to the body of the keyboard. This means they have less travel. It is especially pronounced in the arrow keys and the INS, DEL, HOME, END, PGUP, and PGDN keys. If all keys lay flat, how do I differentiate? I like tall keys I cannot lie.

Blue LEDs for the scroll, mouse, caps lock indicators. Why do these things still exist on computer parts?

Windows key only on the left side. For all of us that are used to doing the thumb-forefinger combination for the "lock screen" operation, get ready to switch to thumb-pinky or using both hands.

I am using this at work. I write code for a living. Therefore, when no one hears my keyboard, that means they think I'm not "working".

Other Thoughts: Cherry keys. Apparently, Cherry is a company that makes certain colored mechanisms that power some mechanical keyboards. I think different colors mean different things. For instance, mine are light-blue. I have also seen red and brown but I don't know how they compare.

I picked this up for three-quarters of one-hundred bucks. For someone who wants a "cheaper" mechanical keyboard, this is a fantastic buy.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent keyboard

Pros: Great keyboard at a reasonable price. Good quality key caps, switches all work perfectly, smart layout (function key on the right side so you don't hit it accidentally when reaching for ctrl or winkey).

Cons: It's pretty loud, but if you've done your homework on mechanical keyboards, you know that cherry mx blue switches are loud due to their design. See "other thoughts" for a recommendation on how to use this in a shared environment without distracting others.

Other Thoughts: I use this keyboard in a work environment, and I type at 120-130 wpm. People who had not previously commented on my typing speed started giving me "compliments" about it. I interpreted this to mean that my keyboard was distracting even if my coworkers insist otherwise.

I tried out keyboards with other switch types and didn't find any I liked, so I purchased some red rubber o-rings from wasdkeyboards.com to dampen the sound. These rings take away probably 50-75% of the sound (since the keys bottoming out is the loudest part), but they still feel great and have a satisfying click. I would highly recommend the combination of this keyboard and these rings for anyone in a work or home environment.
