This review is from: Microsoft JWD-00046 Black USB Wired Standard Keyboard 200
I bought this keyboard for a spare rig my friends use when they come over, and I'm thoroughly impressed by it. The first thing that struck me about this keyboard was how light the switches were. They are much smoother and easier to press than most rubber domes I've used, and feel absolutely fantastic. I never would have expected such stellar keyfeel from an eight dollar keyboard. I also like the design of the keyboard. It doesn't take up too much space, and leaves just enough room for everything. The LED indicator lights aren't too bright and aren't intrusive at all. I'm also quite fond of the USB cable. It's surprisingly rigid, considering the price of the keyboard it's being used on. So far it has been run over by my chair and is still going strong.
I can't say that I'm very fond of the keycaps. They're made of a lower-quality plastic that looked shiny out of the box. Keyboards I've used before in the same price range have had better keycaps than this, so I'm a bit disappointed.
Even though I'm not very fond of the keycaps, I refuse to take an egg off for it. This keyboard is so stellar for the price that it's nearly impossible for me not to recommend it to all my friends who need a new keyboard and are on a budget. I'd even go as far as to say that this keyboard is on-par with some 40 and 50 dollar keyboards I've used in the past. I even like it more than my Razer Arctosa! I can safely say that when my current keyboard breaks, I'll be replacing it with this.
