     Beware the connection is not USB

    I ordered this to use with a laptop. The ad didn't say what the connection was and the leaflet inside the box when it arrived showed it with a USB connection. It isn't a USB connection it is a PS connection so I have had to send it back!

     It may be cheap but it does the job

    Just got this 5 mins ago plug and play no install. Has some handy buttons but I do like the volume control as it saves waiting for the bar to pop up which has annoyed me for ages old PC. Nice and compact big space bar but a good keyboard for it's money. Only gave a 4 star as if you want better it's out there but will cost you a lot more highly recommend this buy.

     Cheap but not great to use

    I bought this for about £12 from the high street. I liked it because it was slim and not too cluttered. I didn't mind the P/S2 connection as my old keyboard was the same. This was bought to replace a microsoft keyboard that had drink spilled into it - this one says it has special channels to divert water away - where I don't know.

    For the first few days I hardly used the keyboard but the other day I had to type a large document, after about 15 mins my wrists were aching like never before. I noticed that the legs keep the keyboard much lower than other keyboards making it really unconfortable to use. I have a cheapy unbranded £6 keyboard on my other main pc which I use for hours every day without any issues.

    A week after purchasing I complained to Microsoft and within hours I received a reply offering me two alternative keyboards, one slightly higher specification and another new model which was £40 more.

    I was happy with the small slim keyboard but it is not worth the pain.

     Good keyboard

    Nice chunky keys and reasonably compact though could easily be more compact but certainly better than the hideous multimedia keyboards. Very stylish match for the black M$ Microsoft Habu Mouse.

    Well positioned play, pause, mute and large volume buttons perfect for gamers using headphones. No next/previous buttons for those that use the PC for music. Support legs too small if you like an angle.

    Otherwise perfect.
