GRANDTEC FLX-2000 Black 109 Normal Keys USB Wired Slim Virtually Indestructible Keyboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Not as good as it used to be 12/07/2010

This review is from: GRANDTEC FLX-2000 Black 109 Normal Keys USB Wired Slim Virtually Indestructible Keyboard

Pros: Silicone, easily to clean, durable.

Cons: Stiff keys and some goofy key placements.

Other Thoughts: I've owned two of these. The first I got maybe 2-2.5 years ago (a previous model) for my home computer. It was odd at first, but had very smooth typing. Loved it.

I got this model about a year ago at work. Much stiffer keys, making typing more error-prone. It did loosen up after a while, or maybe I got used to it. Still not smooth like the old model. They also messed up some key placements, especially the right Ctrl key. Still annoys me at work.

For those complaining about air pockets, there is a little valve on the box where the cable comes out. Look for a little circle cut in the skin, its a plug you can remove. Then you can work the air out and replace the plug. The plug may be attached by a strand of silicone inside, so don't just yank it at first.

My older one finally lost function in the X and CapsLock keys (maybe others, haven't tried them all). Thinking I might try one of the other silicone keyboards NewEgg sells. Hoping to get smooth typing again.
