5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, what's there not to like?, September 30, 2007
By 
This review is from: Logitech Classic Keyboard 200 USB (Personal Computers)
Pros

- Price. Unless you want to go for the old noisy Dell stock keyboard, you won't find keyboards for much cheaper. Only problem with this 1 is that it doesn't have free shipping, which is why I went elsewhere to buy it.

- Keys. Most of the keys (except for the 6-key group which has delete, insert, home, etc) are where they usually are on most keyboards. Also, the keys are fairly quiet as when compared against a lot of other clattery keyboards. Quiet enough so that my parents next door who are separated by a wall aren't easily woken up by my typing, provided of course, that I make an effort to type quietly.

Cons

- No media keys. I don't really consider this to be a con on my part
as I don't do any heavy online gaming or multitask at lightyear speed.
If you're reading this and you're looking for a gamer's keyboard, you'll have to look at spending $50 on a lucky sale day on a wireless
keyboard with all the extra comfort and extra keys.

- Not the quietest keyboard on Earth. I might sound like I'm contradicting myself, but believe me when I say that I'm doing no such thing. Again, this isn't really a con for me, but more of a warning for people who have sound-sensitive roommates and desire a super-quiet keyboard. If you want a REALLY quiet keyboard, then you won't go wrong with Saitek's newer eclipse keyboard. I would know because I bought this keyboard to replace my Saitek, which just broke on me as a result of my own carelessness. That keyboard served me well on nights when my roommate would be in need of quiet. It just costs anywhere between 3-4 times the price this keyboard is going for. My suggestion: look up bargains, go to Circuit City or BestBuy and try out their keyboards. Compare and see which one is the quietest.

Other thoughts: After some research, I had my choices narrowed down between the Logitech 250 and this Based on the pictures, this one looked a bit sleeker, even though it was a dollar more. I will probably use this keyboard for up to a year, and give it away along with my computer and monitor in a year or two.
