  • Pretty good keyboard

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - VERY nice typing feeling.

    - VERY thin... although it has a non-slim protuberance in the back to provide certain inclination. See the pictures carfeully.

    - Seems durable.

    - Decent cable length.

    - Small factor but standard-size keys.

    - "Fn" laptop-like key.

    - Has hinges :D.

    - Hinges lock on the keyboard base with metal pieces. Never seen that in a keyboard.

    - Looks nice.

    Cons:

    - Mine came with a tiny impression defect in the "H" key. No functional problems, of course. May be I just had bad luck.

    - The surface of the base keyboard (not the keys) is glossy plastic. If you stick your finger in it, you'll be able to clearly see your fingerprint on it.

    - The keys are somewhat rised, so if you look at the keyboard obliquely, you'll see the hinges that support the keys. It isn't ugly (in fact I kind of like it), but the dust gets in fairly easy.

    - The cable seems a little thin to me, but i've seen them thinner.

    OtherThoughts:

    I'm pretty happy with the keyboard but i'm still getting used to it. I work as a programmer and i use pretty much ALL the keys in the keyboard, but I still hadn't the oportunity to try to use it for coding. Anyway, I have a good feeling about it.

    Bottomline:

    Rock on! (?)
