First of all, if you're looking for a cheap chiclet style keyboard that works and you're not worried about quiet typing or the "feel" then this keyboard is great. Under Windows 7 it was recognized quickly and the media keys (excepting sound on my laptop) worked right out of the box. The advantage to this keyboard and what it really has going for it is it's heavier than keyboards that are similarly priced. I.e. the Logitech at this price point is too light. Light keyboard sound like a fantastic idea until you put them into practice and they slide or move when you type. Amazon's is the right weight to stay where you expect and respond to forceful typing (hey, it happens).
I've been looking for a keyboard replacement for my Apple Aluminum full keyboard. Even though it works in Windows/Linux just fine, the opposite placement of the "windows/command" key and the alt key make for annoying maneuvering. Its F-keys aren't full compatible either. So I decided to take a chance on this Amazon thin profile keyboard.
I won't be keeping it for my home computer as it's noisy in my opinion and the action feels "cheap." It's smooth and everything, and if I only used my computer for email/internet browsing/maybe some gaming I would absolutely keep it. But I'm extremely picky about the way it feels to type on a keyboard since I do it for 8-9 hours at my day job and 3-4 hours at home working on my own stuff.
For $10 or $11 you really can't go wrong with this if you want something that works great and is attractive (it's an elegant keyboard design compared to most clunky looking keyboards in this price range).Read more ›
"Did I just say "Basic"?"
"That's a magic Amazon word. I wonder if AmazonBasics makes a keyboard?"
So I looked up AmazonBasics, and lo and behold, they make a really stylish keyboard and it's dirt cheap. So I overnighted mom a new keyboard. She called me up after the Brown truck dropped it off and she asked if I or one of my kids could run down and "install" it. I told her it would be an hour or so before one of us could run down there, but would she like to give it a try herself? I described a USB port to her and she "installed" it herself. ;)
Mom was thrilled with the look and feel of the keyboard. She said it was way nicer than her previous Microsoft wireless keyboard. Then she asked "what do I owe you?" and I could almost hear her rolling her eyes at the thought of an expensive gadget. (As if I would actually bill mom anyway!) I told her how cheap it was and she just laughed.
And as always, AmazonBasics saved me a few bucks. Whether it's a USB cable, an HDMI cable, an iPhone case, or now a new keyboard for ma', AmazonBasics completely slaughters their competition in quality and value. If you're patient enough to wait a day or so for the Brown truck, you'll really see some savings.
PROS: inexpensive; frustration free packaging; plug-and-play; Mac compatible; 107-key keyboard with extra media keys; light weight; excellent non-skid pads beneath; surprisingly good responsive feel (not mushy); white labels on black keys large and nicely visible (long term durability of labels not known); depth about an inch less than other brands of PC keyboards
CONS: tilt not adjustable; 12 small function keys not separated into the usual three groups (to me the most serious defect); ESC-key not isolated; not ergonomic; no USB port; no manual (none really needed); keys minimally sculptured (this perhaps giving one the impression the keys are slightly smaller than usual)
PRO or CON: audible keys; slight built-in tilt (not flat); standard PC arrangement a possible CON for dedicated Mac users but a PRO for people using Parallels or VMware on a Mac
CONCLUSIONS: A good inexpensive alternative for people who can't adapt to Apple's Mac keyboards. A nicely done product that would be a real winner with a redesign for an isolated ESC-key and larger function keys in 3 groups of 4. And really desirable would be a large L-shaped ENTER-key with the |\-key moved down two rows and located to the right of a smaller right SHIFT-key.

And the keys are flat and of short stroke. The decision will be based on personal preference, but I don't like such keys. Also the angle of the keyboard is fixed and there is no adjustable legs. The keyboard angle is very flat, which I don't like again.

The body of the keyboard is pretty solid, not flimsy. I like the low-profile chiclet type keys. The keys have the right shape and almost a hair too tall for chiclet. Read morePublished 10 hours ago by Mark Nadig

I have no complaints except the cord is shorter than most other keyboards and it isn't really angled at all. Otherwise it's solid for a budget keyboard.Published 2 days ago by Resmai
Great keyboard for ~$12 shipped. Some of the keys dont 'click' when you type with them. My 'TAB' key needs to be pressed a little harder than normal which isn't a deal breaker,... Read morePublished 3 days ago by Brad
