HP Classic Wired Keyboard
Advantages: Good range of basic keys.
Disadvantages: Not a great range of more advanced keys.
Keyboards have to be manufactured to be 100% functional beyond anything else. It doesn't necessarily matter what they look like, though Mac buyers would probably disagree, it's more about how they perform over a long period and how easy they are to keep clean and neat. 'Hewlett-Packard' keyboards are an example of simplicity meeting functionality in a neat looking form which is easy to understand and use. This device combines all the standard requirements and abilities of a keyboard in a standard looking way.
This is a Qwerty keyboard, meaning it is the standard type used by 99% of UK offices and homes. With all the additional keys which aid typing, this product has everything offered. It has: Caps Lock, Tab, Ctrl, Alt, Home, Alt Gr, End, Insert, Print Screen amongst others. Additionally to this, it has F keys, 1-12. What this model is lacking is the ability to change, fast-forward, rewind, pause, etc music and sound without use of a mouse.
Keyboards harvest bacterior in a very efficient manner - this is because they combine all the required elements to produce germs: namely warmth and constant contact with fingers which spread bad bacterior from one place to the next. Because of this you need a device which is easy to clean, and keyboards notoriously aren't. This model has no innovative ideas helping people to clean it, you can't get behind the keys or even in-between them with any degree of ease.
This keyboard is wired. You can now buy Wireless models for a similar price, but these require batteries and can sometimes disconnect. They also take up a USB port within the computer despite not having a wire connecting to it. Depending on your desk top set-up, you may not require a wireless device, and that's where this product comes into play - the wire is the perfect length for connecting to a PC tower located under a desk or on the floor, so there is no issue with length.
All in all then, this product is hard to fault. It is designed to a simple specification and solves no known keyboard problems, but it's cheap and cheerful, and is something you might buy for temporary use or for someone who isn't bothered about the more highly technical products.
Summary: Decent functionality at a cheap price.
