I am a Technical Writer, which means I am typing all day, every day. Within the first two days of moving to the new office, I began to hear complaints like, "WOW! You type so loudly! Are you hitting the keys with sledgehammers??"
So, apparently I type loudly. Probably because I type about 80wpm with only 2 or three fingers. I never learned to properly touch type.
Anyway... I purchased this keyboard because it has the same type of spring-action keys that a laptop keyboard has, but it's a regular keyboard. It is great! It's certainly not silent, but compared with the standard-issue Dell keyboard I had before, it's about 10 times more quiet.
I considered a silicone roll-up keyboard, but read a lot of reviews that said the keys don't always register the keystrokes evenly. Not so with THIS keyboard... it has a satisfying springy feel to the keys, and registers everything just fine.
I have this keyboard on a wide keyboard tray designed to hold a keyboard and mouse (the kind that mounts under a desk and slides out: 3M Adjustable Keyboard Tray Model Number AKT90LE). I am using the keyboard and mouse together and it fits nicely... this keyboard is *slightly* narrower than the standard-issue Dell keyboard I had before.
I also love the silver buttons along the top that control the Play, Forward and Back, Volume, Calculator, and Sleep functions. I actually use these keys often. The keyboard came with an insert that explained how to set up the sleep function if it doesn't work right out of the box. The instructions on the insert did the trick, and I put my machine to sleep each evening when I leave the office.
The ONLY minor annoyance with this keyboard is that the back feet that pop out to prop the keyboard at an angle are small, so the angle isn't quite as high as the angle I am used to. It's fine though, and I have gotten used to it.
Overall, if you are looking for a quieter (not silent) keyboard, and/or you like the feeling of laptop-style spring-action keys, buy this keyboard.
It's also very attractive... black with a sleek silver border. My coworkers are now happy with the reduced noise, and a little bit jealous of my cool looking new keyboard! :)
The arrangement of keys might throw some people off: The delete, home, page-up, page-down, and end keys are arranged vertically next to the backspace/enter/shift keys, and might take getting used to for people who don't look at their keys when they type (like me). There's also an extra "\" key left of the spacebar that I'm not sure why it was put there and I sometimes press it by mistake, but I really don't find it to be a big enough deal to grade down much on it.
I've had this for about a month and a half now, and I've noticed the "S" key has started to wear off a little bit, but since I don't look at my keys to type, that doesn't really make a difference to me either. I also had an instance where the "k" key would stick and would not type unless I hit it several times very hard. I solved that problem by popping of they key and then putting it back in. Was not difficult. Works perfectly.
I've read a few reviews of people complaining about the supposed chrome border rubbing off after resting their hands on it for so long. I have a wrist support in front of mine, and the keyboard is so thin and short that the wrist support is higher than the bottom of the keyboard, so my hands never touch the chrome at the bottom anyway. And besides, why are you judging a keyboard by its aesthetics if the rest of its design works perfectly fine?
Overall, the keyboard has a few quirks that can take getting used to, but it's worth the money, and I love this keyboard. No extra bells and whistles that I don't need and will never use, just a plain, straight-forward, silent and functional, comfortable keyboard for a decent price. Well done, Kensington!
Overall it is a nice looking keyboard, but the chrome strip is a bit much and textured finish on the keys was not uniform when new. A few months of use has helped homogenized the surface appearance though. However, there is still some noticeable flow marks on the body of the keyboard, but rather subtle. OK, I am nit-picking, this is a great keyboard at a great price.
I am tempted to give this a five star rating, but the small blemishes hold it back, but only by half a star, so think of this as a four and a half star product.
If you are curious, this is running connected to a MacBook running XP. No problems with installation.
