Good keyboard, but...

Sep 29, 2008
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Nice feel, nice wrist rest, nice split design. Everything as advertised.

Cons:The worst thing, however was that the buttons started rubbing off. Inexcusable for a keyboard.

The Bottom Line: The keyboard gets 2 stars for fulfilling it's requirements of being comfortable & nice to use.  But if keys are rubbing off, no dice.


I had every intention of loving this keyboard. When I went shopping to replace the last one that didn't make it through the dishwasher, I had aspirations of a simple wired split keyboard. Period. Not a terribly critical application, so I felt safe getting this one, reading the reviews I’d seen online.



This keyboard fit the bill, if a little expensive. Didn’t have a “sleep” button, and had a few extra buttons I didn’t need, but all in all it was basically what I was looking for. The keyboard worked as advertised for about 1.5 years with relatively no complaints, and then one day the "R" rubbed away overnight. Then, within a few months, 3 more letters rubbed off. Having letters on a keyboard is a it's MAIN FUNCTION, and it's failing. I have never had a keyboard with this issue in the past 15 years. Please keep in mind, neither my wife or I are journalists, or heavy-handed typists. We surf the web, write emails, and a few other things, but are not aggressive typers.



So now I have to find a new keyboard. Thanks Microsoft. I don’t know if I got a dud, or if this is a common issue that happens over time.
