Disadvantages: Can't find think of any for an amazing price
So i needed a new keyboard a while back to use with an old desktop computer i finished cleaning up from my younger years and thought I'd add some style too. I thought back to when i was using the computers in my universities library and began searching for some similar models. I looked in PC world as they had some big deals on for Logitech devices.
It was then i came across the Logitech k200. Its sharp black colour and sleek curved design caught my eye. I then had the bonus of being able to try it out there and then as well as other models of keyboards right there in store. I fell in love with it instantly! The keys seemed to be at the perfect space for ease of typing and comfortable to touch. I just had to get it and for only £19.99.
Bagged up i took it home to try it out properly. I began un-boxing straight away. On the cover of the box is a simple photo of the keyboard whilst on the back is photos of it in use and on desktops. Upon opening i pulled out the keyboard sealed in protective plastic packaging to stop the keyboard from being damaged within the slightly thin cardboard box. The usb cable was nicely and neatly tied up, bound with a cable tie for added protection. Also included in the box was the warranty booklet and a brief help/set-up guide.
When pulling out and removing the packaging i noticed how light the keyboard actually is. The size 45cm X 15cm makes it a perfect fit for standard computer desks and fitted perfectly on mine. The black complimenting the fine oak wood.
I fired up the pc, running Windows Vista Home ready to use the new keyboard. I plugged it in to a free usb port and it was instantly installing. Using simply plug and play there is no fussing around with CD's and software/drivers to get it going. After around 20 seconds i got the message the device was ready for use. Simple fast installation and i was ready to go.
I fired up word just to try it out and i was quickly typing away. The keys are almost perfectly spaced apart for fast typing with a slight curve on the keys to give a comfortable fit for your finger tips. When typing at first it can feel a little like hard plastic however i found its very quick to get used and you can almost forget the keyboard is there. A feature i later realised from on the box was the spill resistance feature which i have yet to test however from closely looking at the keyboard i've tried it hard to find anywhere leakages could get in.
Another great feature of this keyboard it the hot key buttons for sleep, internet, calculator, volume and mute buttons. However i've yet to consistently try these out. I've tried the sleep and internet button which both seem to be quickly responsive, the internet button swiftly opening up your default internet browser. The usb cable is of a fairly good length and could easily reach the back port of a computer from a desk with ease. Also built into the bottom of the keyboard is 2 tilting legs, which i have found that i always use which raises the keyboard up from the desk at a better angle for use. However it all comes down to your preference.
I've used this keyboard for around 8 months and yet to have any trouble with it. The sleek curved design of the keyboard makes and excellent wrist rest for your hand. Even with the long periods of use and typing i've yet to experience any hand pains or distress. The keyboard has also been knocked a few times and pulled out and still there has not been a problem with it. Its highly reliable and resilient especially for the price i originally paid. For a simple keyboard with a few light media and quick press buttons at an amazing value for money this keyboard is a must have. With simple plug and play on any PC or laptop any computer users of any level should be able to handle this keyboard with ease.
Summary: A logical solution for a simple keyboard.
