ADESSO AKB-230 Black 109 Normal Keys USB or PS/2 See Details Flexible Full Sized Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The pro's of these keyboards is that, while they last, they are incredibly quiet, and by forcing you to hit the keys a tad harder you actually end up strengthening your hands, which if you play guitar like me, is always a good thing. Rolls up easily however if plugged in will sometimes cause keys to be struck erronously.

Cons: Well.... i hate to be the debbie downer, but they say these things cant rip and that they don't wear out. My daily use of a couple hours or so a day, and they tend to stop functioning properly (ie... keys stop working mid typing) about 18 months after purchase. my 2 year old acutally ripped three keys off this keyboard in one grab too. So much for indestructible.

Other Thoughts: i know that the keys are somewhat farther apart but it never bothered me. I wish that the end of this keyboard didnt have that massive lump on the end where the cord is attached, it makes it feel a lot less streamlined.

ADESSO AKB-230 Black 109 Normal Keys USB or PS/2 See Details Flexible Full Sized Keyboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This keyboard is great for parents and people who like to eat/drink at the computer. I originally got this after I broke my work keyboard by spilling coffee on it. I have spilled coffee on this so many times I can't count and it's extremely easy to clean.. just dip it in warm water and pretty much everything comes right off. Now that I have a child, it's even more practical because I can easily fold this and put it up out of my childs reach, and am ordering another one too.

Cons: The only one I can think of is that there are extra keys that have no function, and thats a little annoying, and yes it does take some getting used to the feel of the keys, but once you're used to it, a normal keyboard is annoying.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these, one for work and one for home. When I lost that job, I kept it, and I'm glad I did, because when a letter key stopped working i was able to pull out my extra one. I have had both since 2006 thought, and they've lasted pretty well, no tearing or ripping of any kind.

5 out of 5 eggs Better than anticipated 04/01/2007

This review is from: SCEPTRE X7G-NagaVI Black 17" 8ms LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 500:1

Pros: Plug and play, nice and crisp, defintely takes some getting used to, but for the money I think its a great buy.

Cons: It's a slight effort to adust the monitor's angle, but c'mon people.. it's really not THAT tough. Also I was a little dissapointed with how bright the monitor stays, i actually have to turn it off at night, because even with brightness/contrast all the way down, it's still brighter than the TV.

Other Thoughts: I would just like to say that I was very skeptical about this product when i ordered it, because of all the lukewarm/negative reviews. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that everything worked as described, and no caling to tech support was needed. As I said previously, it's a great buy.
