Would be a good keyboard if it worked properly
on March 22, 2009
This keyboard has a lot of potential, but it has a fatal flaw. It would work just fine for a while, then it would go into a mode somewhere between caps-lock and normal, where the wrong keystroke is sent to the computer. Toggling back and forth between caps-lock and the regular setting would not get the keyboard out of this state and the only solution I found was to reboot the computer. My guess is this has to do with a bad software driver, but I was using the most up-to-date driver downloaded from Adesso's website. After trying to use the keyboard for about a week, I finally unplugged it and went back to my old keyboard.
The keystokes feel pretty good. I was disappointed with the buttons below the touchpad that act as left or right mouse buttons because they make a very loud click and require too much pressure.
If the flaw the prevents the keyboard from functioning correctly were corrected, then I could increase my rating from 1 star to 4 stars, but in its current state, the keyboard is unusable.
