I bought this keyboard about a year or so ago; I picked it purely for the reason that it was the cheapest available in the shop I went to. It cost £9.99 on its own but with the computer system I bought, the price came down to about £5. I can't justify spending horrendous amounts on a keyboard, unlike my son who bought one that lights up!! If I see it on here I will do a review.
The keyboard comes with a PS/2 USB connecter, which fits most old and new computers, it also works on our Xbox (when using WWE 12, typing storylines in with a keyboard is a lot easier than using the controller to type). The keyboard is black and the buttons are also black with white/cream letters and numbers on. The feel of the keyboard is nice; the buttons are easy to press and spaced out well. Some keyboards the buttons are sticky and you need to use a fair amount of pressure to get the desired key to perform, this keyboard is not like this. There are three extra buttons at the top: Mail, Web/Home and Search, I can't say I have used these buttons but they have always worked without the need for programming. When I first used the keyboard, I plugged it into the back of my computer tower and it was automatically recognised by the computer which saved a lot of messing around trying to configure it.
The keys are relatively quiet, and it has the extra number pad on the right hand side as well as the normal three lights for Number Lock, Caps lock and scroll lock. They are a light green colour which isn't my favourite colour but for the amount of notice you take of these lights, really is of no consequence. The spacebar is quite short compared to some other keyboard models; I found this quite off putting when I first started using the keyboard as I had a longer bar on my old board. Now I am used to it, it is easy to get along with. It is a reasonable keyboard, does everything it is meant to do.
Not a fan of some microsoft products - namely mouses. Anyways about the keyboard - well it is quite a bargain. Retails at Tescos for £9.99. It is curved with a sense of ergonomics behind its design. The keys are well spaced out but does not have an additional set of keys beyond the standard - no programmable keys here.
As far as typing goes,the keyboard is on the quiet side but does feel very responsive to keystrokes. The space bar is a tad on the small side - if you like big space bars.
It is a wired part that comes with a PS/2 USB adapter so you can use it on older machines. There really isn't one outsanding feature to talk about but it is a budget keyboard and one that functions adequately for the price.
Prolonged typing is fine but don't expect it to be great for gaming - although your typical FPS will be fine to play with this.
I would probably sum it up as a quiet, comfy and somewhat easy on the hands sort of keyboard. If you need a keyboard and have a low budget you cant go wrong with this.
Out of the box and into your system, this affordable keyboard sets up in an instant, with no software necessary. Plus, the Wired Keyboard 200 has the features you need, like the 10-key pad and a Windows Start button. When you want to kick back, simply adjust the height of the keyboard and type comfortably. Life should be this simple.
