Pretty good keyboard – 78-Key Compact Slim USB Keyboard - Black (160CM-Cable) Reviews

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.
Other:
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! (?)
