5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Replacement arrived, all keys work. Love this keyboard, it saves so much space. Gearheads QC seems to be a little lacking but overall a good keyboard, great key action.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If you get just the keyboard it ships in a plastic bag like wally likes to do and the keyboard is very loose in the box, no padding. upon trying to submit this the actual spelling for wally was highlighted as an inappropriate word, I agree, too funny Newegg, made my day.

3 out of 5 eggsok...maybe

Pros: its very small, it's 11 and 1/4 wide, 5 3/8 deep. looks and feels well built, metal bottom, keys have a good action. i would be and will be fine using this all the time.

Cons: the first one i got, the one i'm using now neither of the shift keys work, waiting on a replacement, which was no hassle.

Other Thoughts: would be nice if the function and control keys were swapped but will get used to it. not sure why there two back slash keys, ones to the left of the space bar, its a blank key in the pic, would be nice if the space bar was a bit longer there.

4 out of 5 eggsSmall

Pros: Small

Cons: Small backspace.
I hate that the bottom left button is not the control button!
I have to hunt for the DEL button - Read below.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to throw in a keyboard tray under my desktop with a mouse in tray. Not my primary keyboard, or I would be annoyed. The bios had to be tweaked because the number lock was on at boot. This would cause the JKL buttons to be numbers and not letters at log in.

Does exactly what I bought it for. I can't expect same keys as a full size keyboard for 11 inches wide.

4 out of 5 eggsDesktop Saver for Professionals

Pros: Small size, works with KVM switches, saves precious desk space, It works. Fairly easy to keep clean as the buttons are really close together - not a lot of material can fall between the keys. Its pretty solid, simple, and cost effective. It's a clean, professional-looking design.

Cons: Small size. Compressing the side buttons to fit in the small package feels odd at first and takes time getting used to.
Number Lock interferes with the normal keys (u,i,o,j,k,l,...). Remember to check for the first LED light.
I would not use this keyboard to play computer games.

Other Thoughts: I have to control multiple computers at the same time. One, my workhorse, two my office dell, 3-4 test and reimaging computers. At any given time I may be working with multiple platforms with varying degree space eating.

I don't have a lot of space on my desk to do all these things. I have computers on the floor, monitors on monitors. With that said, I've been looking for ways to control all of this clutter. Using the other Dell keyboards are far too wide for my needs. This keyboard is LESS than a Foot across. Less than Half a foot high.

Really, it makes a difference when you've got a lot on the desk.

I orginally bought mine from a retail store in Charleston, loved having it so much i'm picking up another soon and felt like writing this review.
