You know the problem - there's dust everywhere in the house.
I use the "Compressed Air Cleaner" to clean my PC keyboard which seems like a magnet for dust and rubbish. Besides, I can clean some parts of my guitars which are tricky to reach etc.
There's also the ability to clean your computer's inside if you want to. I think this is also necessary to prevent your computer from overheating.
The product itself seems valuable and costs about £6, which I think is a good price.
It work's fine in general. But I also bought some of these, which made a extremely cold fluid (due to the expansion of the gas), so it is a bit risky to use this cleaner on electronic products.
The cans had lasted me for 1 month each and only for £6 for a can its worth the money. But as I wrote you should be aware that it can cause damages (-> handle with care!).
I saw this stuff at a super-cheap price a few weeks ago and, having never tried it before, bought a can to keep by for when I wanted to give something electrical/hard to dust, a really good blast. Fast-forward a few weeks and I'm very glad I purchased this when I did!
Basically, I got a tiny amount of water inside my iPhone's headphone socket without realising, and the phone started reporting that I had headphones plugged in, when in fact I actually didn't. After blowing into the headphone socket, plugging headphones in and out, and resetting the phone in case it was a software fault, I suddenly remembered the air duster I had purchased recently.
I attached the straw to the nozzle on the can, and inserted the tip into the phone's headphone socket. I gave a who blast to begin with, as I was worried about damaging the socket somehow, although the concentrated blast of air did note really feel too powerful, when I felt it with my finger. I noticed a tiny amount of water spray back out of the headphone socket, so I wiped it away and gave it another blast. Two seconds later, my phone was back to normal again, with a perfect headphone socket and has been fine ever since!
I have since used the air duster on my computer keyboard, iPhone and iPad dock connector ports, and various other electrical bits. It's a great way to keep dust, crumbs and fluff out of your beloved gadgets, and works very well.
I would recommend keeping a can of this stuff in the drawer, as you never know when it might come in handy! At full price, I'd say it is far too expensive, but if you can get a cheaper alternative, or find it on sale (mine was only £1!) then it's a great buy.
@ About, Power, Cleaning ability @
I bought this compressed air because I needed to clean in-between grooves and small areas where dirt builds up and I have used it mainly for my computer keyboard too. It is somewhat powerful but not great. Getting to the more stuck on dirt and debris is difficult because this wont get it off, its more designed for loose dirt and dust build up rather than stuck on things. Getting dust off is easy and you don't need to spray for more than a second or two to blast the dirt away. The can comes with a little screw in plastic pipe, which can make it easier to get into the harder places to reach, and this really helps when getting into the grooves of a keyboard.
The stalk is solid and quite durable when you drop it or try to squeeze it with your fingers, but will bend easily. You can just twist or push the plastic tubing up or down which is really annoying when it accidentally gets bent inside a small area. The can itself is made from very thick metal, it cant be depressed or dented unless you throw it very hard onto the floor and I have never experienced any problems with jamming or getting stuck with a dirt build up in the tube.
The air blasts out a reasonable of power and is enough to move a small post it note across a table if you want to waste the expensive air inside, id recommend conserving the air at £12 - £15 per can. The can will last for months if you just clean a standard QWERTY keyboard once every week and it takes seconds to use, just remember to shake it up well before use. This is suitable for laptops because there is not enough power to break anything underneath the keys and so long as you are careful not to jam the plastic pipe under keys it wont break the clips holding them in place.
@ Overall @
This can of air is quite expensive (£15) for what is basically a metal container of what's already around you and it seems a bit of a rip off for what you get. This stuff is everywhere though I see it in many good retailers but its not actually any good, its not that powerful so not recommended. Why not just use something else like folded paper?
I saw the Lindy Compressed Air Cleaner in my local electronics shop one day adn was intruiged by the idea of cleaning out my keyboard. My keyboard works just fine but having read other reviews about the amount of gunk inside an ordinary keyboard I just had to buy it to find out.
The cleaner itself isn't actually a cleaner, it is just a compressed air cylinder similar to your usual can of WD40. This is quite a good selling point as I'm never too happy spraying odd chemicals onto my expensive piece of electronics! Also with it being simply air there is no slimy residue left on your keys or hands, meaning you can do a quick cleanup and get back to work in no time.
Individual cans cost £10 or so on Amazon but if you are working in an office then I'm sure the office supply company can work out a discount if you're willing to buy in bulk. I can't see any way of refilling them yourself so you're stuck buying new cans. This is a bit of a disappointment really as in a big organisation you could go through quite a large amount of product cleaning an entire department.
Using the air cleaner is simple, just point the long 3" straw at your keyboard and press the nozzle. The air burst is pretty powerful and will clean out even the deepest keyboards. I was worried it might be a bit much for my thin laptop keys but there was no damage done whatsoever. The pile of gunk and mess left on your table however is another story. I could never believe so much rubbish could collect under a keyboard. Food, skin cells and odd bits of paperclips and pencil nibs all came flying out of mine during cleaning.
The gas seems to last a relatively long time, I've cleaned my laptop keyboard 4 times now and it seems a little more than half empty. This will obviously depend on how long a cleaning takes on your particular keyboard but you should get a number of uses out of it before having to buy a new one.
Good product that fills a particular niche that I never knew needed filling.
We use this product at work for cleaning keyboards and our IT department use it when they rebuild machines. It is one of those items which is completely genius but, for me at least, rather gross at the same time due to what it produces from the depths of an item which I use and touch for around 8 hours a day.
Effectively this is a can of compressed air in an aerosol which has a thin plastic tube attached to the nozzle in order to effectively aim and direct the air as it comes out. You can buy a single can via Amazon for around £9 but we buy them in bulk as office supplies which brings the price down considerably. If you run a small office then one can is probably enough as they do last a considerably long time and one can will probably suffice for less than 10 or so keyboards - but in a large organisation, faced with the cost, it makes sense to order them in bulk.
I suppose it is testament to the fact that many of us spend most of our working day sitting at desks banging away at keyboards. Although my work machine is actually a laptop, I use it on a docking station with an attached full size keyboard as per our health and safety guidelines (?). I actually find I am a quicker and more accurate typist on a full size keyboard so I do not mind, in fact I use my home laptop in the same way (and should probably clean out that keyboard too, thinking about it).
As we use our keyboards constantly they tend to collect dead skin cells, dust, crumbs of food and even the odd bit of stationary under the keys (I recently had to work a paperclip out from under my number pad - I have no idea how it got there). What this pressurised cannister of air does is literally blow them all out quickly and efficiently, leaving a pile of detritus on your desk and a clean keyboard with fully functioning keys.
The first time I used this I was gobsmacked at how much utter nastiness came out. Bits of food (a consequence of literally working through lunch), debris and dirt came flying out and made me feel quite grimy. As a result of this I now blast my keyboard every few months and there is always a pile of bits which emerges from the exercise.
Well worth keeping a can of this handy if you work on a keyboard all day, expensive but effective and prevents a nasty build up of grime in these essential bits of kit.
This is the most powerful can of impressed air I have used, but it is also the most dangerous. You have to keep it upright at all times even when spraying because it will otherwise release a very cold, crystallised liquid that can really sting you.
I have a particularly deep keyboard so this needs to be powerful and also have a long straw to get the gas out. For power it really is Terrific, you can blast bits of dust out of the keys from half a yard away.
The straw is long enough to get into a corner and still be effective about 3inches deep which is perfect for a keyboard but makes it useful for around the house too. Quite the multiple purpose product really.
I wish the straw was a bit thinner though, it has to be thick enough to let a lot of air out, but is usually can't fit it between my num lock keys because it is so tight, and the keys are too close together. The straw does detach though so you can make your own make shift straw to suit your purpose, and modify it.
It's the cheapest can of compressed air I have seen and it is roughly the same size as the. Others. Most of the compressed air is liquid to start with but you can shake it before use to get it to the top, and blast out more powerfully if you need it.
This is recommended for hard to get to places but just remember it is not only for keyboards. It's perfect though for keeping your board clean.
At work I use a desktop computer rather than a laptop and find that the desk top style keyboard gets a lot dirtier compared to that of my laptop I use at home, I think this is mainly due to the keys being much thicker and more raised. I often find that the keys appear to be very dusty and I dread to think what sort of dirt is between the keys. Recently we decided to invest in something to give our computer keyboards a good clean, after looking through the various stationary catalogues we have and also online we came across the Lindy Compressed Air Cleaner, perfect for what we needed and not overly expensive, not that that mattered too much as we weren't the ones paying, but still it was reasonably priced and I would have been happy to pay out for it myself.
When the Lindy compressed Air Cleaners arrived they came in the form of what looked like a furniture polish can, quite tall and thin with a spray button on the top. There was a label wrapped around the can which was mainly red and white, it showed a picture of a computer keyboard with a hand spraying the can at the keys. Written at the top of the label are the words Lindy (in white letters) below this was the word Clean written slightly larger (in black letters) and just below this was the words Air Cleaner, this was written in much thinner and a lighter black writing. The label wrapped all the way around the bottle and on the back was various pieces of information about the product including directions for use, what the product does and also warnings about using the compressed air cleaner. The Compressed Air Cleaner comes with a detachable nozzle, this simply pushes onto the smaller nozzle on the front of the can and is designed to get into the hard to reach places and between the keys on your keyboard, being able to detach the nozzle is also handy as it means you can easily clean it if needed which prevents it from getting blocked.
Using the Lindy Compressed Air Cleaner if very easy, you attach the nozzle to the front on the can, point it at the areas you want to clean and press the top of the can just as you would any regular spray can. The can shoots out the compressed air very quickly resulting in all the dirt, dust and grit flying out from between the keys on your keyboard, the air comes out with such a force that it instantly removes the dirt from the keyboard. The nozzle makes it easy to direct the compressed air into the tight corners of the keyboard and any other hard to reach places. The Compressed Air Cleaner does not just have to be used for cleaning computer keyboards it can also be used for cleaning most items of office type equipment whether that's actually in the office or in your home, the can contains pure air so is safe to use on most pieces of equipment which has difficult to reach corners/ areas which get dirty and dusty.
The can contains 125ml of compressed air and measures 6cm x 6cm x 19cm and weights just 100g, it is a similar size to regular spray cans used around the house making it easy to store. The Lindy Compressed Air Cleaner is 100% Ozone friendly so you can use this product and know that you are not harming the environment.
There are various warnings which come with this item such as keeping it away from heat as it is flammable, do not pierce the can or spray directly at yourself or others, the warning are pretty much standard to that of aerosol cans. One thing that I will say about using the Compressed Air Cleaner is that after prolonged use the can does get extremely cold!!!!! I have found out from experience that holding the can for too long whilst using it results in you burning your fingers due to the can getting so cold!!!! I have found that the best way to use it is to either use it for short periods of time which is ok if you only have a small area to clean but personally i have found the best way to use it is to wrap a cloth around the can itself whilst using it, this creates a barrier between your hadn't and the very cold can meaning it cannot burn your hands. This is not actually written on the back of the can but I feel that it should be as I learnt about this the hard way.
I ordered our Lindy Compressed Air Cleaners online from Amazon and they cost us £9.05 each plus postage, OK they nearly £10 sounds quite a lot for a can of air but I was very impressed with how well the air cleaner worked, I was surprised at the amount of dirt it removed from between the keys of my keyboard, it is scary to think how much dirt is hiding in there. So personally I would be prepared to pay this price for the Lindy Compressed Air Cleaner, I have even borrowed the one I brought for work to try on my laptop, whilst it did remove a lot of dirt, it removed more dirt from my works computer. I found that they keys no longer had that dusty look between them which they had had previously which no amount of cleaning would remove. The air cleaners are now a regular thing in our office as they do an excellent job at keeping the computers and various other pieces of equipment clean. I would recommend this product to anyone whether it is for use at work or at home, probably not the cheapest of things to buy but it does work and is successful at getting into all those hard to reach places and removing the dirt.
Lindy compressed air is a can of air that I have used to get dust and debris removed from my computers, tvs and remotes. It is very easy to use but not cheap to buy.
The compressed air works as it squirts out a jet of air under pressure to get at small hard to reach places that I can't get to without its help. This removes the dust.
I think its good for cleaning behind the fan of the desktop and can remove lots of dust with no damage to the system. Its much better than trying to get to that by other means.
The lindy air in a can is in a spray can and comes with a small straw which goes on the nozzle to help me aim it better. Without the nozzle connected to the straw it is not as good as it just sprays everywhere with no real direction.
When I got this I was shocked that it was a lot of money but I looked around and paid less. In the end it cost me just under £7. It can be much more, as much as £11. I think thats way too much to pay even though I like it.
I only need to give a light press on the nozzle to get enough air out to lift dust from small areas on the computer. It works well to clean behind the keys on the keyboard.
When one of the tvs was looking very dusty at the back it was good to have the lindy air in a can to blast away the trapped dust with no damage to the tv.
The can you get holds 300mls of the compressed air and its ozone friendly which is good to know. I think even one can lasts well and can be used lots of times for cleaning all kinds of hard to get at things.
I would recommend lindy air in a can because places that are very hard to reach when cleaning need a solution and the lindy product can be a big help. You do need to use it with a light pressure or you will waste it and it will go twice as quick.
Recently I was having problems with my computer PC, as it appeared that either something had become lodged between the keys or general dust which I had been unable to remove had simply remained.
This can be incredibly irritating when writing and the letter 'S' refuses to go down, so I needed a solution, from reading the reviews on this site, I thought I would give Lindy Compressed Air Cleaner a try. We use something similar at work and although it always ends up with somebody spraying someone else with compressed air i've been impressed by how it really does make a difference to keyboards.
I purchased 300ml from Staples for £9.99, it should also be available in PC World and is £10.94 for 300ml on Amazon.
The cannister is like a furniture polish can, long and thin with a picture of the areas of a computer you can clean with the spray. Sellotaped to the top is a straw, this is actually to be attached to the nozzle to direct the spray clearly.
The way to use it is simply to give it a shake and then spray over required areas, it lets out a jet of compressed air at some speed which basically forces any dirt on your keyboard to fly upwards and out of the keyboard.
The first time I used this I specifically concentrated on the areas of the keyboard that caused most trouble and on spraying really did see it remove a lot of the build up. Two sprays and the keyboard was as good as new. It may seem expensive but working without a keyboard or buying a new one would have been much more expensive.
The item is incredibly easy to use, just fit the straw and spray, it does a great job and is easy to store in any draw or cupboard.
It is expensive but it works so it kind of covers itself on the grounds of quality.
I use this spray once a week now just to keep everything clean and tidy, its perfect for keyboard maintenance and easy to use, it has lasted me 3 months so far, it feels like it is nearly empty but i'll definitely buy another in due course.
If you need a cleaner for your keyboard, this should be it.
I have come to the conclusion that there is only so much air in my lungs, and if blowing up a couple of balloons is enough to make me short of breath, then trying to blow all of the muck out from underneath my keyboard is not going to be good for my health. My wife is likely to find me passed out on the floor with a small corner of the laptop looking somewhat more dust-free than the rest.
Luckily, I needn't bother, as you can actually buy air! Now I know this sounds silly as it's basically all around us anyway, but what this little gem of a product does is compress it for you, building up the pressure, and all you have to do is push a button, and it does your blowing for you, and at a much higher force than you could ever muster with your lungs and head rushes!
It costs around £10 and is available from most computer places, as well as amazon.co.uk. for example. You get a basic canister that's not unlike a deoderant can, really, along with a thin pipe that you attach to a nozzle on the can. Once you depress the button on the top (again, just like a deoderant can), then the air shoots down the nozzle, which concentrates it into a powerful thin jet of air. You'll be amazed at what happens when you aim this at your keyboard!
Personally, I'd suggest doing this with the computer off. It's handy to manoeuvre the end of the pipe right close to your keyboard, maybe even pressing on some of the buttons to get underneath the ones next to it. The laptop I have has virtually no space between the letters, so this is essential to get the muck out, and it really is surprising just how much muck there is in the keyboards.
I really hadn't thought about it before, but the amount of times I've probably dropped crumbs on the computer or the dust has just gotten under the keys, or my son or wife have done the same, really must be quite numerous. When you use this jet spray of air, there's a ridiculous amount of muck that can come out. I find that turning the keyboard/laptop upside down is often the best way of getting the muck to come out, otherwise you might just be bludgeoning it all into a corner. If, like me, you have close buttons, it does get a bit trickier, and I'm sure there's still a ridiculous amount under those keys, but I feel happy that so much has come out.
It is mainly crumbs and dust that forms in there, and it's amazing what this little device can do. I'd say it's probably more useful on independent keyboards, which tend to have more gap provision on them for easier usage, and aren't restricted by laptop size. I have seen similar products used on keyboards and the stuff comes flying out. At work, we have dozens of computers that students use on a daily basis, and there must be all manner of things lurking underneath those keys, so I'm seriously thinking about getting one of these for work.
I've used it about three or four times now, and although I haven't exactly sat there for 15 minutes trying to eek out every last bit of dust, there seems to be a decent amount left in the can. I'm not sure exactly how long it would last, but it's definitely cheaper than taking it into your computer shop and saying it needs a bit of a clean. I also use it for blasting the fan at the back, which gathers quite a bit as well, and there has been the odd occasion where I have used it for other hard to get places around the house that can get a bit dusty or grimy and just need the occasional blast.
So, really, it's a very useful thing to get hold of. Its primary use is to blast away bits and bobs of dust and food, etc, that gather in and around office equipment, mainly keyboards, but its uses can be numerous if you use your nonce, and ultimately it's a very handy thing to have at your disposal. Recommended.
We regularly use this at work on the computers. We have three computers and three quite grubby keyboards in the main office and due to the office almost being on a building site at the moment there is a lot of gathering dirt on our equipment.
I have often used a compressed air cleaner from Jangro which was cheap and awful. The straw that shoots out the air kept breaking off with the pressure! It was really frustrating so I decided I would get this quality cleaner instead and see the difference it made. I was quite pleased I did so because this cleaner worked perfectly everytime. It cost me 10 euro in Soundstore and I also made sure to get wipes too to pick up the residue it would blow out.
The can itself is 300ml and consists of air which shoots with force out of a straw attached to the nozzle which is pressed for action. Its really easy to use. You just insert the small straw included into the nozzle and place it on the keys of the keyboard and blast away. The force of the air escaping the can will then shove all the dirt and dust out of hiding and outside the keyboard. You would really need to use wipes too though because this flying debris seems to land all around the keyboard.
After a while I lifted the keyboard and turned it facing down and then I sprayed. This way the dirt landed on the desk and I could see fully what was coming out. Also by doing this there was no dirt landing on the keyboard again. Its amazing to see how much dirt is in one keyboard. This is also encouraged because people can catch all sorts of sicknesses from touching dirty equipment in the office.
On really quiet days I like to take every key out of the keyboard and blast the base with this cleaner. I find this is the best way to get it perfectly clean. Even if it does take a bit of patience!
I would recommend this to everyone who has a keyboard in the office at home that are past their prime and need a blast to get rid of all the gross grime.
After reading a review on dooyoo a good few weeks ago now i decided to get the lindy compressed air cleaner as i had been looking for a solution to cleaning my laptop.
My keyboard is always grubby not helped by my kids touching it if left open on the table.
The lindy compressed air cleaner cost nearly £10 from amazon.
The canister holds 300ml of compressed air and comes with a long straw.
To use the canister you have to attach the straw to the nozzle on the can, it is a little fiddly to push it in but once done it is ready to use.
The little straw can be placed along in the crevice of the laptop keyboard and push the nozzle down.
The air comes out the straw with force to lift the dirt, dust and crumbs but you can only hear a quiet swoosh from the can.
I like to think i kept my laptop quite clean as when it got dirty i used cotton buds and wipes yet the dirt and dust that blows up from the keyboard when using the can was amazing.
The can contains air only no chemicals or cleaning fluids so will not damage the equipment.
I have used the canister only ones and still feels full so think it will last a good while. I think you would only need to clean the laptop or pc a few times each year as it gives a good clean may take while for dust and crumbs to build up again.
I feel the lindy compressed air cleaner is reasonably cheap and i highly recommend it.
Gosh! I actually went out and bought air. It feels silly, but from past experience entirely essential when owning a PC. I first came across this product when my computer when in for a quick virus clean up at my local computer store, when I went to pick it up the entire inards, usualy a beastly mess of spider cobwebs, copious amounts of dust, the odd crumb and random oddities, came back sparkling clean. So obviouly I asked how they did it, because obviously using regular dusters and cleaning solutions would be really really daft and liable to break your computer quicker than you could say uh-oh. Anyway, they showed me Lindys Compressed Air. After a quick demonstation I ended up buying a can to take home.
Basically, the same as a deoderant can you press down the button on top and the contence, in this case air, comes blasting out with some ferosity. It is this ferosity which swiftly banishes any dust and cobwebs away from the air stream. It can be use anywhere on the computer because as it is just air it is harmless to the compents. Regular areas I use it on include the fan, keyboard, mouse and inside the Pc case. 1 can does last a long time when every thing is dusted about once a month. Mine has lasted more than a year, but obviously this depends on how often you clean.
I found that after using this my computer fan is much quieter and probably more efficenet. The keyboard is much nicer to use too with out having to stare at all the crumbs loaping around between the keys. Also did you know that keyboards are five times dirtier than a toilet! If that isn't incentive to clean them, then I don't know what is!
I think that like the majority of people who use a computer or laptop once in a while they tend to get a bit messy from certain things. Stuff like eating and dust take a toll on your keyboard but I find it very hard to clean the keyboard as I can't seem to get into the very tricky places. As a result of this I was looking for something to purchase to try and solve this problem.
For this cleaner you will be looking at paying around £7.99 for it. It definitely isn't the cheapest product for cleaning keyboards but I wanted to see if it actually worked. I would put the price to one side and just give this a chance.
The product is a 300ml cannister which will come with a seperate pipe whch you will have to attach onto the end of the cannister to use. It isn't the easiest thing to get on but once you know how to do it you won't find it a problem again. It is a very basic product which doesn't have a sleak design or anything so I was hoping this would work even more so.
After attaching the pipe onto the nozzle it is then very basic with regards to what you do. You simply place the pipe onto the desired area and then press down on the top. You will then get a bit gust of air coming down and it does really blow away any rubbish that was in their previously. The hardest thing is getting it on but even that isn't hard once you get used to it.
Once I used it on a certain area of my keyboard I was actually amazed at how well it actually worked. Even though you do pay for it to work atleast you know this isn't a rip off and it will actually do what you want it to do. If your looking for a keyboard cleaner like I was and don't really mind paying the price it is then I do definitely recommend you going for it. The product actually works extremelly well and I was very pleased with it.
I often find that my computer keyboard and other peripherals suffer as a result of my eating and drinking when working at my desk. I have tried a good many products in my quest to render my desk items sparkling, but most fail the test. When I saw Lindy Compressed Air Cleaner in my local shop I was intrigued by the premise. Most often I resort to cloths or wipes of some description, but using compressed air to sanitise my accessories was a whole new concept.
The product comes in a 300ml canister with a long, thin pipe that must be attached to the nozzle before cleaning commences. What I found difficult to comprehend on getting the product home is that it contains only air. Granted, it is air that is specially packaged, and what you are really paying for is the powerful action afforded by the pressure in the container and the long tube for accurate precision, but it is air nonetheless. Given its simplicity however, I felt more confident about the safety issues, such as ventilation and fire hazards, and another benefit of the product is that it is 100% ozone friendly, so poses no threat to the environment.
Using the air cleaner is very. Firstly you must attach the pipe to the nozzle, which can sometimes take a bit of manoeuvring to get it to slot perfectly into position. When this is done however, all you need to do is place the end of the pipe into the crevice you wish to rid of dust and/or debris, and press the button on top. Air emerges from the canister with a low hiss, and you can immediately see how efficient the product is. Debris accumulates and is pushed in the direction of the air flow. This is particularly useful in digging out dust and crumbs from among your keyboard keys, as even with the best wipes this task is very difficult indeed. This is certainly the best method for the job. Also, when I am cleaning my keyboard I have a tendency to hunch down as I clean to view the process up close. If this product contained chemicals this would be unpleasant and/or dangerous to inhale the mist, but the Lindy Compressed Air Cleaner does not pose such a threat.
I have mainly used the product to clean my keyboard, and was overjoyed with the success. I once tried using it to clean the edges and corners of my computer screen, but was wary of this as I felt the stream of compressed air may damage the delicate screen. Although I did not detect any noticeable damage when I turned the screen on later however, this is not something I would repeat on a regular basis. I bought the cleaner for £7.79 from my local hardware shop, but it is available online from the following sources:
£7.19 from tvcables.co.uk
£7.99 from bestcables.co.uk
£7.99 from lindy.co.uk
The big drawback of the cleaner is the price. At just under £8.00 this is not an inexpensive method of cleaning. This, coupled with the fact that it will last for only two or three thorough cleaning sessions, does not make for a budget buy. If you are meticulous about cleaning and having a gleaming keyboard is important to you, you may deem this a good price. I will continue to purchase the product, but I will use it sparingly. It is, after all, air in a tin.
