It was the shift key.

I tried out 35 keyboards at Fry's, and ended up buying more of this one on-line.

If you just need the cheapest, jankiest keyboard to get you through some hard times, this keyboard will type "misery loves company" in a way that makes you sing the blues with utter satisfaction. But if you're merely trying to cut corners and use your computer for hours each day --work sucks enough already: just spend the extra $10 and get something that wont make you insane.

To give you an idea of what I am going through to type this review for you: The key action is slightly better than a manual typewriter from the 1940s but is worse than an electric typewriter from the early 90s. Maybe if it made a typewriter-like sound I wouldnt complain about this. It produces many fine typos because half the time you press a letter or the space bar and nothing happens because you didn't jam your fingers down hard enough, or apparently perfectly straight enough. Guaranteed to slow your WPM (Words Per Minute) and speed up your RSI (Repetitive Stress Injury). Its like using a toy that pretends to be a keyboard. I wouldn't even give it to a dog.

When I moved back from Korea my nice Samsung Korean keyboard was missing from my luggage. As a replacement I bought this keyboard for around 7 dollars from my local computer store. I just wanted the cheapest black USB keyboard they had. I used it for about 6 months before deciding I wanted something a little nicer. It's alright - nothing special. The keys are high profile and hard clicking (noisy). They are also beveled so there is a comfortable amount of room between the keys. If you have not bought a new keyboard in the last few years, you will not have a problem with this one.

The construction is not the greatest. There is a considerable amount of flex in the middle of the keyboard. The keys I used most often show a lot of wear and I believe I would wear a hole through the space bar if I continued to use it for another 6 months. On a positive note, there is no wobble and the feet raise it to a comfortable level (the logitech keyboard mentioned below's biggest failing is that its feet do not angle it sufficiently).

I upgraded to Logitech Classic Keyboard 200 USB, another cheap basic keyboard. I was really shocked by how nice it was in comparison to this one. Soft click, low profile, faster typing, and it just looks really nice. In a store, if you are going by price alone, then you'll save around 7 dollars with the imicro. Online, unless you are buying a large number of them as a builder, you'll spend more (because of shipping) and are better off getting the Logitech. I would not go back to this one.

(BTW - this is the North Korean keyboard of choice. Search youtube for "North Korean children learning computers" and you'll find this keyboard featured. Just thought it was funny.)

This keyboard came with a refurbished computer that my boss purchased to replace my desktop when it crashed while I was away and she was in a hurry to get it back up and running. For about a month I have been attempting to work with this keyboard. Here are some of the most common things it will randomly do:

1) Suddenly stop registering any input as you type, then a few seconds later allow you to type again.
2) Suddenly stop registering any input at all, so that you have to unplug the USB connector and re-plug it back in to get it to restart.
3) Suddenly indefinitely repeat a letter you just struck, even if you lift your whole hand away from the keyboard, until you hit the backspace key to get it to stop. It particularly likes to do this on the "e" key (or "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" key) - but hey, how often does an English-speaking typist use the "e" key anyway, right?
4) Turn off the "Num Lock" toggle for no apparent reason. Repeatedly.
5) Randomly perceive input from a function key you didn't press, resulting in strange behavior like minimizing the window you were working in with no warning.

The stress this keyboard will put you through in just one afternoon will eat up any possible benefit its low price will bring you.

And eventually you'll give up and buy a different one. That's what we're going to do.
