Good deal for the price!

As others have pointed out, this keyboard is smaller than most, with less keys than typical PC keyboards have, however all of the most important keys are there. The backlighting is excellent, but you just about have to keep it constantly lit since it is almost impossible to tell what the keys are without it.
My only big complaint is the backspace key - it is a single key size rather than the double-width size that is standard on most keyboards, and it is placed right next to the "home" key...if you are a less than perfect typist like me and use the backspace key a lot, it is aggravating because you will find yourself hitting that home key all the time. That will send the cursor back to the beginning of the line you are on, requiring you to stop and use the "end" key (or worse, repeatedly hit the right arrow key) to get back to where you were. With practice, hopefully this will get better.
All in all, though, I am really pleased with the keyboard despite the minor complaints. I thought the price to benefit ratio was excellent and even if the keys wear off in a couple of years, it is cheap enough to just buy another.
