      Luckily for me I didn't pay for this keyboard as it came with my work laptop. If I had paid Amazon the current price of £12.50 for it then I would have been very disappointed as I believe that you can buy something a lot better for less.

      The keyboard is about as basic as you can get, it has the standard QWERTY layout with the F1-12 keys at the top and numerical keypad on the right. There are no snazzy functions that I have on my personal keyboard e.g. buttons to play, pause, ffwd and rewind videos, launch the internet browser or go to your home page. In fact the only things to show you this keyboard was not built in the 1970's are that there is Euro sign on the number 4 key and the Windows button either side of the space bar.

      Setting up the keyboard is very straightforward. You simply plug it in to the USB port of your computer and it will work straightaway. If you don't want to use up one of the USB slots then you can fit an adaptor to the end of the keyboard cable and then use this to plug it into the standard keyboard port on the back of the PC. With both methods the keyboard works straightaway with no additional install required. The cable is around 1m50 which has always been good enough for me. The only other thing to decide is whether you want to use the legs on the underside to slant the keyboard downwards. You are then good to go, simply rest your hands on the palm rest and get on with typing.

      It's difficult to find much more to say as there is not a lot to it. In the 2 years that I have used it, it has never given any problems such as lettering the keys fading, keys sticking/not working etc and is both comfortable to use and easy to clean. Every few months I simply turn it upside down, smack it a bit to knock out any crumbs and then clean the keys with a screen wipe.

      All in all if you want a robust keyboard that will last you a long time and gives you the basic functions then this could be the keyboard for you. For an office keyboard I can't really complain but for home use I would prefer a few more bells and whistles.
