BASIC KEYBOARD BUT GOOD QUALITY
Logitech Deluxe 250

Logitech Deluxe 250
Advantages: Good quality basic keyboard. Small size.
Disadvantages: Some might consider it pricey for such a basic keyboard.
This is similar to the keyboard in the Logitech Wireless Desktop 1500 set, except the keyboard has a wire of course and no media buttons. It still has the new Windows Vista style Windows keys. And the glossy black end caps. It's a really nice keyboard to use and I bought it for £7 from eBuyer in January 2008 but you can probably get it for a bit less than that now as it's been out a while.
Since I have the 1500 set I knew this would be a good keyboard and is perfect if you don't need to move the keyboard or aren't worried about the lack of media buttons. This actually makes it a little smaller in size than the 1500 keyboard so will save you some desk space too. It is USB but comes with the adapter so you can use it on the PS/2 socket instead if you wish. I know I had to do this when setting up an old computer to enable USB legacy support and then I found out I ran out of USB sockets so had to use the adapter all the time in the end.
The keyboard is well built and feels like something that will last. The keys require a comfortable amount of pressing to activate. It has the newer (smaller) style caps lock key and num lock key to help prevent typing errors. This does actually work as I find on Dell keyboards the caps lock button is trimmed off on the right but nowhere else it means when pressing shift you can activate caps lock- well the Logitech solution gets round this problem by trimming off the bottom of the key too.
The only other feature it has is the "spill-resistant" drain holes. I haven't tested these yet though, fingers crossed. I don't really see how they resist spills but rather get the liquid away before it can do any damage so it should be more like "spill-damage-resistant" drain holes.
Summary: Overall this is a nice office keyboard with no special functions. One of my trusted brands!
