Advantages: nice design, comfortable to type on
My keyboard is white and measures at 456mm x 160mm which is about average for a computer keyboard. It has the Microsoft logo on the top right hand side of it and it is raised up slightly at the back so the keyboard is at a tilt. It is very light to hold and overall is quite basic looking but it fits in nicely as it isn't overly advanced but simply a keyboard with a wire coming out of the back of it. It has green lights going on when hitting caps lock etc which again is nice enough and it looks stylish to me which is what I wanted.
MICROSOFT 600 KEYBOARD
The keyboard needs to be plugged into a machine running on Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 and my computer runs on Vista so I didn't have any problems installing this. This is a USB keyboard so all you need to do is find a free USB port and then you can begin to plug this in and start using it. The minimum hard disk space needed to plug this in is 60MB. The keys on this have a rubbery feel but I do like this as it is softer to press down on the keys and when typing it is a lot quieter than most keyboard so that it isn't distracting for people around you.
The keyboard is apparently spill resistant which is fantastic so it has been created to withstand a spill but I wouldn't really want to test it out as I'd be scared it still damaged it. The keys being quiet is a built in feature as they thinner keys but still responsive so I do not have to hit down on the keys too hard to get them to type out the letters which I also love. The laptop comes with a limited 3 year warranty in case of any problems with it and there is no software required for this keyboard being plug and play.
The keyboard comes with hot keys so you have ones for play/pause, adjusting the volume and putting the sound off completely. This is really handy, especially if watching a DVD and you just want to change the sound on things. The keyboard has all of the numbers to the right as well as at the top, as it is a wider keyboard. There is a hot key for the calculator so that as soon as you touch this key, it accesses the calculator instantly, rather than fiddling about with menus.
There is a windows start button on here also to launch that so that if you want to access any software you just hit this or also if you are wanting to shut the machine down this speeds up the process. The keyboard is easy enough to clean but being white and having rubber keys, I feel dust doesn't really show up as much on this which is great. I never really have any problems with this when typing as it seems to act fast and always works right away. When you hit caps the light shows so that you know it is on.
I think this is a great keyboard from a very reputable company, I have a Microsoft mouse and so to have a Microsoft keyboard to go with it, seems like the perfect match. It looks nice and is so easy to get up and running that you cannot really fault this as a far as keyboards go. It is not hard to use if you are light on your fingers, being quick to response and also it is soft to type on which is nice for fingers, as well rather than hitting down hard which can be annoying as I've had issues in the past with laptops.
This keyboard is currently being sold on Amazon, the white one is £8.49 free from Amazon but there is a longer wait on this or the black model is dispatched from Amazon for £8.69 and it is currently in stock right now.
The official Microsoft website is http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-gb where this keyboard is listed.
