I got my Internet Pro keyboard to go with my Celeron-based system running Windows '95. My previous keyboard was also a "multimedia" keyboard--a rebranded unit made by Chicony.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. The construction is solid, the typing feel is very good, and it's quiet. I cannot put my Windows 95 system to sleep with the sleep key, although my previous keyboard allowed me to. I tested the new keyboard with a system running Win '98 and it goes to sleep when the sleep key is pressed.
The IntelliKey Pro software is pretty good, especially the multimedia features. It worked flawlessly. I would like more control over user-defined keys (only three or four are programmable, depending on how you count), but this is a gripe I would levy against every custom keyboard software I've seen.
The only caution I would give a potential buyer relates to the USB: This is not a keyboard that'll work on a "legacy-free" computer. It is a PS/2 keyboard with a USB hub, <not> a USB keyboard with a USB hub. Although my Windows 95 OSR 2.5 software states "USB support" on the CD label, the keyboard does not function with USB under Windows 95. This is not the fault of the keyboard and the software requirements on the keyboard box clearly state that Windows 98 is required for USB support. By the way, I was using a USB mouse for testing. The keyboard itself uses the PS/2 port and has an extra plug (a USB pigtail) for its built-in hub.
USB suppoort under Windows 98 seemed to work OK, although I did not have time to check this out fully. I understand there are a few glitches when using this keyboard with a USB mouse that happen when waking from sleep mode.
Overall, a good keyboard choice. Have reasonable expectations of USB and you'll be very satisfied.

Well i was searching for a keyboard online for a [less expensive] used price. And i found one. I was not specifically looking for a microsoft one, but i was hoping on getting it, and well i got it. When i was looking for more info on the keyboard i noticed that i couldnt get much info, especially what are the buttons functions, so I am going to tell you it. There are 19 buttons which do activity's. The activity's are or as microsoft calls it the Hot Keys are Back, Forward, Stop, Refresh, Search, Favorites, Web/Home, Mail, Mute, Decrease Volume, Increase Volume, Play/Pause, Stop, Prev Track, Next Track, and Media(lists all entertainment type programs such as real player, winamp, cd player etc.), My computer, Calculator, and Sleep. I found that the only buttons you can change the activity with is the mail button, calculator button, my computer button, and search so far. The detachable palm rest is not comfortable as my other palm rest so i dont use it. The keyboard lists keyboard shortcuts on the side of the corresponding keys such as if you were trying to copy a word you would press cntrl+ c, and on the side view of c you could see it says copy. The keyboard comes with PS/2 and USB cable joint together. The keyboard has a built in 2 usb ports. The keyboard allows you to disable some keys, if you wish to. Well I liked the keyboard, and i bought a used one, and found a great price for it too...

This is a fine, sturdy keyboard that works with ME (despite the previous review). I'm using it on ME right now. You need to download the ME driver from MS though.
The key pressure is just right, the size is fine (not too small, not too big). The extra buttons are helpful. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I'd like the wrist rest a little bigger.

It's a pity and a shame that Microsoft discontinued this keyboard. Their newer keyboards look nice, but they're a little too flashy for me, and I'm not a big fan of the new keyboard layout. If you're looking for the functionality of these newer MS keyboards but with less of the nonsense, this is definitely the way to go. It sports a not-likely-to-offend beige finish and the old-school 104 key layout. Even has a built-in two-port USB hub, the perfect place to plug your USB mouse and game pad. (It's not a powered hub, so don't try plugging in things like printers and hard drives.)

The lower-end Internet Keyboard has 10 additional keys; this thing sports 19. Use them as marked for one-touch access to web browser and media player functionality, or reprogram them to your heart's content. The pain-free driver install and configuration makes this a cinch. And key response is just about perfect; if you don't already know how to touch-type, learn it, and you'll appreciate this even more.

If you can find it, get it. It's more than worth the time and effort.

I have had my keyboard since 2003. It's now 2015 and my keyboard has yet to disappoint. I do an annual cleaning of my keyboard by taking it apart and washing the components in the sink (not the electronic components, that would be stupid). My keyboard still works like new. The best thing about this keyboard is the layout. The keys are not like the modern keyboard layouts where they moved the HOME, DEL, INSERT and other keys around. I can't stand modern keyboards. I work on computers for friends and family. Having a PS2 plug and a USB plug both works great. I don't have to keep adapters around. I am a heavy typist and occasionally have rage issues. This keyboard has taken more than its fair share of closed fisted attacks. If you want a keyboard that will stand the test of time, this is definitely the one for you. I have tried so many other keyboards but always resort to bringing my keyboard to the workplace as they never seem to have good keyboards.
