5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive
Media buttons
Media buttons work in linux (no drivers required for linux or windows)
Comfortable
Quiet
Slim profile
Low-profile keys (could be a con if you prefer full-height keys)

Cons: Low-profile keys (only if you prefer full-height keys)
Very light (build quality feels kind of cheap - expected at this price range)

Other Thoughts: Replaced a wireless keyboard that had given up the ghost. I use it daily for some FPS gaming and medium-duty typing, and I wanted something with basic media keys for in-game volume while playing video games and for music. Since I dual-boot Windows and linux I also needed the media/extra function keys to be usable in a linux environment. This fits the bill perfectly at a great price. All of the media/function keys work in linux with the sole exception of the dedicated refresh key (not an issue for me as I am accustomed to using F5). The refresh key works in Windows. I haven't experienced any key press lag or ghosting issues while playing basic FPS games. Typing is comfortable. For me the wrist rest is the perfect size and thickness. Keys are responsive, but quiet. I couldn't tell from the picture, but the keys are low-profile, half-height. I happen to prefer the half-height keys, but if you prefer full-height keys keep this in mind. Fit and finish is good, but the keyboard is very light, which makes it feel kind of cheap. Typical of keyboards in this price range, so I wouldn't take a point off for it. Overall, I'm completely satisfied. Great value for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Decided to roll the dice on this unreviewed KB because it was one of the only ones I could find that met all of my picky criteria, particularly regarding modifier key layout (ctrl keys roughly equidistant from home keys, basically). Also, it was on sale at the manufacturer's website for 10 bucks. So far so good!

1) I can press the control keys on either side with the palm of my hand from home position. This is very important to me even if it doesn't matter to anyone else. A lot of keyboards have an utterly pointless second Windows key on the right side, or have one of the modifier keys uselessly extended just to get all of the keys on the right side to line up. This throws off the symmetry and makes it hard to hit the modifier keys on the right side consistently and comfortably. This keyboard doesn't do that, mercifully.

2) Function keys are properly spaced every four keys to allow for touch typing. Seems there's a trend among KB manufacturers these days to run them all together.

3) One-key-tall enter key with backslash/pipe key in the right place and a double-width backspace key. All as it should be, yet hard to find for some reason.

4) Full numpad

5) Media buttons

6) Keys feel soft and are fairly quiet. Remains to be seen how this will change with age.

7) Keyboard is pretty thin

8) Has a nice modern look

9) Seems to be fine for general gaming--e.g., no hiccuping when holding W to run forward.

Cons: These are pretty minor, so I'm not removing an egg.

1) Being a full-size keyboard with a palm rest and the media buttons on the sides, it has a very large footprint

2) Media buttons feel somewhat cheap and don't give very good feedback.

3) The button for the web browser has the Internet Explorer icon rather than a generic globe. Feh!

Other Thoughts: Given how picky I am, I would have happily paid full price for this, so the discount was merely a pleasant surprise. If you, on the other hand, are not as picky as me and can no longer get this for 10 bucks, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. There are plenty of good keyboards out there in the ten to fifteen dollar range.
