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?Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
