This review is from: Lenovo ThinkPad Black USB Wired Ultimate Compact Keyboard with TrackPoint - US English

Pros: The keyboard itself is a real T400 series keyboard. If you are used to this, nothing else is going to suffice.

Cons: The chassis that the keyboard is built into is really really cheaply made. Oh, and the sticky shift is there, though you have to be a really really fast typist for that to be an issue.

Other Thoughts: To make this feel like a real Thinkpad keyboard, I opened it up and packed the inside with Dynamat, which is dampening goo used by car stereo guys to keep their cars from rattling. This deadened everything, and gave the keyboard a more substantial feel, and if thickly applied gives some more support under the keys. Then, I removed the little rubber feet from the bottom and replaced them with a large rubber mat that covers the whole bottom. This allows the keyboard to be supported over the entire bottom so it does not give so much when you press a key. Doing these two things will make Thinkpad users feel like they are typing on an actual Thinkpad keyboard. It is too bad Lenovo could not be bothered to make this a little more solid.
