PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The back has five small rubber pads to help stabilize the keyboard, and that's it. Notice something missing here? There are no flip out stands to elevate the keyboard. I like my keyboard to be elevated, so let's move on to testing and see if that becomes an issue for me or not.

 

PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



Installation is a breeze, simply plug in the keyboard to a free USB port and the OS will do the rest. Blue indicator lights will let you know when num lock, caps lock, or scroll lock is activated.



Testing


Since this is a keyboard designed to be used with laptops, I hooked it up to my old Dell Insprion 1100 that I use for email and web surfing and began typing away. The keys were quiet and very lightweight without being too sensitive. The key spacing looked almost a bit wide to me at first glance, but once I began typing it was evident that the spacing was just right. All the keys I frequently use are right where I need them and the short travel distance really helped keep fatigue down when I typed up a long document.


As much as I liked the keyboard, there is one thing I couldn't get past. I strongly prefer my keyboard to be elevated so it's resting at a slight angle. Without any flip out stands to make this happen, after a while I began to notice it and it became uncomfortable for my wrists. Keyboards are a highly subjective product though, and I realize that for some people this may not be an issue at all. For me though, it is.
