I needed a new keyboard a few months ago as my last one I had spilt coffee on the keyboard and a couple of the letters had stopped working - notably the E, one of the worst letters to stop working lol, so the next day I popped into Argos to have a look at their keyboards and what was available.
The keyboard I chose was the Logitech K120, costing me a mere £9.99. I chose the cheapest keyboard there was because I have no need or use for a more expensive one, and as most of the time is spent typing, this is all I needed it for anyway.
WHAT'S THE KEYBOARD LIKE?
The keyboard has a USB lead, so you can just plug it into a USB port on your computer, which I found easy and simple to use. It installs easy enough and is ready to use more or less straight away. The lead itself is quite long and find there is enough lead to read from the USB port at the back of the computer to the keyboard.
The keyboard is black with white lettering, and the Logitech logo in the top right hand corner of the keyboard. Across the top are the F1 - F12 keys, Esc key. On the right hand side is the insert, home, page up, down, delete, end, print screen, scroll lock, the arrow keys and pause break keys. And to the right of that is the number pad, which is useful.
Underneath the keyboard is too little flaps which you can bring out to put on your desk. This will put the keyboard on a slight tilt for ease of use when typing. I find this particularly handy when typing. It makes life a lot easier for me when the keyboard is tilted slightly. There is a caps lock, numbers lock and pause/break key too.
For me, this keyboard does me. It has everything I need. It has the handy number pad on the right, the little flaps underneath and the F keys on the top. Personally, I am happy with this keyboard. As I say, I've had this a few months free and so far is stain and coffee free. The keys are easy to type with, and I find this a quiet keyboard too. Some I've found to be a little noisy with the clicking, but this one isn't like that.
If you want a cheap and cheerful keyboard, I would highly recommend this one. It types well and is easy to use.
Thanks for reading.

I have been using this keyboard at work for the past 12 months now and so thought I would share my experience. The keyboard is currently available to buy from Amazon for a price of around £8 which I think is good value for money.
The keyboard is black in colour and made from plastic; as are most keyboards. However, there is nothing 'cheap and nasty' about this keyboard. It is clear that the plastic keys are of high quality as they have a more expensive feel than cheaper keyboards. They keys are a good size and are easy to see. The keyboard has a USB connect which means that you can simply plug it in to your computer and away you go. It's works straight away which is good.
The keyboard is lovely to type on; I find that when I am typing, it flows nicely and smoothly. The keys don't stick and they only need a light touch. I like this keyboard as the ability to type smoothly, without the keys sticking means that it is great for fast typing. There is nothing worse than a keyboard which keep sticking and prevents you from typing fast.
The keys are quiet when typing and don't provide too much of a 'clickety' sound. They are not sound free however, the noise they make when typing isn't enough to distract other people in the office too much. So that's a bonus point.
I would definitely recommend this keyboard; it's a nice, simple yet good quality keyboard which I am really pleased with.
