My biggest problem with this keyboard is the key placement. Somebody, probably someone who doesn't know how to type or use a keyboard, decided that the keys could all be spaced differently. So what you have with this keyboard is all the letters packed as efficiently as possible. The backspace key is shorter so you can't tell where it is unless you look at the keyboard. Assuming you aren't already looking at the keys because you can't find the 'delete' key with your pinky. All the F keys are packed nice and tightly so there's little to no space between the keys, again making it difficult to find any of the F keys (F5 for quick save, F9 for quick load in games, F11 for full screen, etc.).
I paid $9.99 for this thing, but i wouldn't be any happier had i paid the $6.50 they're charging now because i simply want to beat this keyboard on my desk every time i hit F12 or home (happened trying to type this) instead of backspace.
I hate this keyboard. I've been typing for 20+ years, and this keyboard makes my head hurt when i try to type. Not hurt from having to learn the keys, but hurt from anger knowing my finger placement is now wrong because somebody wanted to shave 2cm of plastic of this thing. It must have been cheap plastic too, because after having this thing less than 30 days, one of the feet broke. I've never..NEEEEEEVVVEEERRRRR....had a foot break on a keyboard...so i pulled the other off and i use a book to adjust height.
In summary...$10 keyboard, so you get cheap materials, but that's acceptable except someone tried to make a better mouse trap with this one so you have to relearn many key placements to use. I say we just quit buying redesigned junk that doesn't meet the high standards of the '80's.
