We have been using this keyboard for about three days now and ended up liking
it much better than even some of our Logitech keyboards. The keys are easy
to press and because of its flatness, it’s very comfortable to type on.
As for gaming response time, there is no problem. After all this is a wired
keyboard so there should be no issues about keyboard lag. Also we know some
of you out there are wondering about how loud this keyboard is. Well we can say
it’s probably the quietest keyboard we’ve yet encountered. The soft clicks are
only slightly louder than the keyboard on a IBM T21, but certainly quieter
than the two Logitech keyboards we commonly use. The keyboard also has three
purple LED’s that indicate num lock, caps lock, and scroll lock. In the
dark they look very cool, as we've never had a keyboard with purple LEDs.
The only problem we had with this keyboard was
the multimedia keys. They are small and quite deep. Additionally the multimedia keys wouldn't operate under Linux with the 2.6.12 kernel.
This is a very nice keyboard for anyone looking for a high quality,
quiet keyboard. The aluminum face is certainly very impressive. The keyboard
is also very flat, which helps keep the wrists straight. After typing for extended
amounts of time on this keyboard, we felt that it was a good improvement over
some of our previous keyboards, such as the Logitech multimedia keyboard. Overall
this is a very nice keyboard and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it
to anyone searching for a flat, quiet keyboard. As always, thanks to our newest sponsor, Hiper Group, for providing
this sample for review.
