2 out of 5 eggs Nice looks, but some problems. 08/24/2012

This review is from: GEAR HEAD KB5150W Black USB RF Wireless Standard Desktop & Optical Mouse

Pros:

Wireless keyboard, nice look, perfect layout.

Cons:

While the looks and form of the keyboard are great, there are two fairly major issues with this keyboard for me.

First of all, the keys are angled backwards slightly, even with the feet on the bottom of the keyboard raised. This means that the top edge of each key is slightly lower than the bottom edge of the key.

It's seems very minor, but it definitely took some adjusting to. Touch-typing was more difficult at first than on any other keyboard I've used. It forced me to change the angle of my wrists slightly while typing, which causes some cramping in my hands after extended use.

Another issue is that the keyboard has a tendency of losing the connection with the transceiver. Especially if it's been idle for a while, it can take ~20 seconds of pounding random keys before it starts responding to anything. It never cuts out while it's actively being typed on, though.
