I bought this keyboard as a replacement for the original one came with my HP computer which is a USB wireless. I liked the original one but it can't be used with rechargeable AA for a long time. I had to keep recharging constantly. And I didn't like the idea of wasting throw away batteries.
This new keyboard is just as compact and light as the original, it's a minimalist's dream. Key stroke is very quiet and requires very short stroke kind of like using a notepad keyboard. Plug & play operation is extremely trouble free, you'll need no instruction at all. Some of the photos I have seen showing PS2(old type connection) adaptor included but mine didn't include it, which wasn't an issue for me. There's a special key for "calc" but I didn't have a problem starting it in a couple of key strokes, so it's not a big advantage. Another feature is its "spill-resistant design". It's nothing more than a several slits under the keyboard. If you spill water, it may help drying quicker, for anything else, you'll have a hard time getting it clean, probably never completely like any other keyboard.
Over all, I like everything about this keyboard with no negative opinion. Only thing I don't know about it is its durability but from the way I feel, it seems well made and will last for a long time.
The photo showing on this page is misleading. It comes with keyboard only without a mouse.

This is a compact keyboard and I do not feel that anything in the description of the product mentioned that. There is approximately 1/16" less space between keys. I noticed that I was having trouble with typos on this keyboard and that is because my larger fingers have a tendency to hit the side of the key next to the one intended. Next, most of the keys around the perimeter are very rounded off on the top making it difficult to execute the key unless you hit it right on. Examples of these keys are the cursor keys, ALT, Ctrl and spacebar. The function keys are only 1/4" tall, so you need to pay close attention when aiming for the key. The keyboard is quiet. If speed is not important, then it is an OK keyboard. It has Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll lock indicator lights and a button which brings up the windows calculator.

It seems to be getting really difficult to buy a decent keyboard. I bought two of these based on the reviews here. I wanted something that was quiet to type on, and the volume controls were a plus. But after using it for several months I don't find it to be all that quiet. And the stylish rounding over of the front edge, along with all the front keys (space bar, arrows, etc.) is quite aggravating in actual use.

I find the arrow keys on this keyboard to be the most annoying. Along with the left, right, and down keys being so rounded over they are difficult to use, the up arrow is rounded in the opposite direction. So when you try to use these keys, the rounded section actually dips below the top! The function keys are really small and hard to press too. Add to this the black motif, and you end up with a keyboard that is very difficult to use in low light conditions and almost impossible to use in games.

I replaced this with a Targus AKB04US, which costs a little more but is quite a bit better.

As stated in other reviews here, the keys go below the body of the keyboard when pressed making it difficult to use. Besides the recessed keys, the entire bottom row is rounded off on the bottom. Why does Microsoft think the bottom row of keys needed to be aerodynamic, this is not a car. This is a terrible design to use even if it's "sleek". Sigh.

I ordered four of these keyboards because I do an extensive amount of PC repair in the field. I purchased six of these keyboards about five years ago and they are all still functional. When you need a quick economical replacement keyboard, this one provides a quick solution every time. The part I like best is the calculator key that instantly prompts the calculator function when you are in a hurry. It also has the ability to increase, decrease, or mute the sound when you need a quick adjustment if the phone rings or when you want to adjust the sound level. I highly recommend this keyboard as I am an Industry Certified PC repair technician. You really don't need to spend a lot of money when you go to buy a replacement keyboard. This one averages only about fourteen dollars which is a great price when you have several computers at work or at home.

I use this keyboard every day at work, and I highly recommend it. Don't listen to the negative comments about the angled keys. The design is excellent and it's one of the best keyboards I've used. I work in IT so that includes quite a lot. For a little more than ten bucks, this is a great buy.

Also, despite the other reviews, this is a thin / slim keyboard! Keys are low profile and very easy to depress. It's even a little better than my Logitech Access 600 (although I do really like the redesigned home/page/delete keys on the Logitech better).

This keyboard is a replacement for my 6 year old HP keyboard, that finally bit the big one. This keyboard has many great little features, like volume control buttons for those of us who have a monitor with built in speakers, and in particular those of us whose monitor speaker volume button broke, and can only control the volume via the windows icon or the keyboard *ahem*. It also has a little calculator button in the corner. As someone who is studying for his engineering degree, this little button is already coming in handy!

The keyboard itself is quite ergonomic, with the keys gently curving to enable faster typing. It's taking a little adjusting for me, as I'm used to the old fashioned keyboards that are flat, but I'm already noting a faster typing speed than before. The other nice feature, which I mentioned in the title, is that the keyboard is so quiet! My other keyboard clackety clacked, and the volume buttons were loud popping noises, but this keyboard and it's buttons are super quiet. This is what ninjas use when they have to Google their targets. Nice and stealthy.

As a final note, let me also say that the build quality is solid. This keyboard looks and acts like a keyboard that would cost significantly more than the $19 I paid for it. If you're looking for a balance between quality, features, and price, this is the keyboard to buy.

All in all, I love this keyboard, and I'm glad I finally gave in and bought one. I highly recommend it.
