its not wireless, its not even that expensive. But see if you can find it in your local computer store and type on it for a few minutes. You'll see right away why its been rated so highly by everyone.
I still miss my old IBM model M (everyone's favorite keyboard) though it has long since been obsolete (no USB, too loud, too heavy, by today's standards, tho it had the best key-feel and feedback of any keyboard ever made). I havent been happy with any of the new keyboards since 1986! ;) Until now, that is.

I initially went shopping for a Logitech Dinovo (or the S510, which is similar). After trying them out I decided against, since they were too similar to my toshiba laptop keyboard and I was looking for something less cramped.

I came across this one at the store and liked it right away. For me it has the right balance of key-stroke depth and key-spacing. I feel it has just about all the 'positive feedback' and 'feel' as the old IBM M model. Now, you may ask: this keyboard is whisper-quiet and 'soft', while the M model was loud and clackety-clack-hard. How can they be compared? They can be compared in terms of the 'confidence' with which one can type on them, the equivalent typing speeds and error-free typing that both can produce. In my case, I type as well - fast and error free - on this keyboard as I ever did on the model M.
It inspires typing-confidence.

The keys feel substantive under your fingers, meaning you are always sure where you're finger is going. The tactile feedback is quite positive, though it has been described as 'soft'; I think 'bouncy' might be a better word. (Like the old model M, remember?

I consider this to be a nice, middle-class wired USB keyboard. The media/shortcut/quick launch keys are convenient and easy to configure and rebind. Keys feel firm and are quiet. My only minor complaint is that the zoom slider does not work quite as well as advertised; from what I've tested, only Microsoft Word works with it consistantly.

This keyboard is a very good value at Amazon's price, and a real pleasure to use. The key travel is soft and quiet, and the keys for My Pictures, My Documents, Undo, Redo, etc. are convenient. In addition to five My Favorites keys, you can also reassign any of the preset hot keys to your liking. The media player controls are handy also, with the volume control allowing small increments of change. The zoom slider works well in Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop Elements, Word Perfect, and web pages; these are the only applications where I've tested it, but the Microsoft web site lists others where it should work. I haven't had the keyboard long enough to attest to its durability, but it seems solid and well-made, and the black-and-gray finish is attractive. If you're looking for an upgrade from the default keyboard that came with your computer, this is an excellent choice and you won't be disappointed.

This is a very solid keyboard, as only microsoft knows, they have build the best keyboards for a long time. Its quiet, the keys have the right presure and feedback, its very well design, and it has very good support, with new drivers I havent had a single problem. For mouses i still prefer Logitech, but for keyboards microsoft still the king. Defently recommended.

THis is a nice keyboard with a nice feel. However, if you plan to use it for ANY applications where you need to press three keys at once, and none of those three are ALT, CTRL or the Windows key (i.e. in a game environment you may need to press "W" to move forward, "E" to turn right and "space" to jump all at the same time) then this keyboard will NOT work. It will only recognize two key presses at the same time within the standard keys. According to the Microsoft website solution center, there is no workaround for this because "this is not a valid key press situation."

The irony is, Microsoft Games publishes a ton of games in which this is a "valid key press situation." Too bad you can't play even those games using this product, made by the same company.

Although I love the look and feel of this product, I will be returning it. Not just because of the problem needing a resolution, in my case, but also because of the arrogance of the Microsoft attitude about the problem.

Microsoft's Media Keyboards have always worked well in our house. No small achievement with small kids around and the number of drinks that are spilled in them. When the last one finally gave out, with the pricepoint on this model it was the natural replacement, despite not being an ergonomic model.

As always lets start with the negatives.

- To be fair, the plastic construction can feel a little cheap - especially the silver areas.

- Secondly, the "zoom slider" for example seems particularly useless. Sure it works and all, but I've not run across a single application where I would use it!

- Microsoft have kept the cost down by NOT including a USB hub in the keyboard. If you are low on USB ports in your system you might want to look at some of the higher end models with the USB hub in them rather than this model.

- Finally, and probably the most annoying, as with all new Microsoft keyboards isthe function key lock - or rather the fact that it defaults to the off position. This means that in order to access BIOS functions during boot, you need to remember to press the F-Lock key prior to pressing F2 or whatever to access the BIOS or the computer thinks you've typed ctrl-z instead! (Note: a previous reviewer alluded to the fact that on some systems a USB keyboard can never access the BIOS. I've never run into this, even with older machines, I beleive they may just have been caught out by the F-LOCK mechanism, but if you have a very old Win98 era system it may be worth checking this first).

On the plus side, its a Microsoft keyboard.

- The quality, as I mentioned above, at least for they key mechanisms is always very good.
