Back in one of the old offices i used to work in, we used to use the Kensington Slimtype Keyboard. After un boxing one of these keyboards from the box you can see its safely stored in a plastic bag which is secured in a white foam mould to protect it from moving freely in the box to avoid damage.
The keyboard uses a simple plug and play feature, so you need simply use the wired USB connection from the keyboard and plug it into a free port on your laptop or desktop pc. Not only using the common QWERTY keyboard layout the keyboard has a variety of other functions such as a sleep button, internet browsing, multimedia, mute button and volume control.
While using the keyboard, you instantly notice the fairly average sized keys which have a slightly rough feel to them, which at first are a little stiff but through simple wear and tear they soon loosen up. The other first impression is the black coloured style and sleek modern slim line design that makes this a perfect office keyboard or home keyboard and suits any environment.
I had used the same keyboard for around 2 - 3 months, and still didn't have any problems with it. However the special added function buttons did become a little bit harder to use, as during use they have became a little bit stuck during use and can sometimes tend to get a little stuck, and need to be pressed a few more times in order to loosen them back up again. Which can be a bit of a problem during use.
In my opinion i feel this is a good all round keyboard, perfect for an office environment or a home computer and is perfect for general every day computing. I had a look around for the price of these and they retail at around the £17.00 - £20.00 mark. I will say this keyboard will need to replaced maybe after a few months of use but still a good, back up keyboard or for use for basic computing.
Summary: A good keyboard for everyday computing for an amazing price
