Good price but annoying it only has PS/2 connection. That is like soooooo last century.

Voted warm.
banned#3
Keyboards are available this cheap or cheaper from pretty much anywhere. And its PS/2 - it wont even fit in most new computers

Just goes to prove that HUKD'ers will vote any old **** hot.

Seriously.

alot of cheap keyboards have that connection I found a usb connection one in pc world for £4.99 so was pleased with that!:) Although some of the lettering has come off haha!!! Does me fine the now though, I was always wireless but omg we were burning the batteries real fast!

It's a good deal for 4.99. This included shipping so you don't have to go out to buy one.

I have no idea why, but most new computers still have PS/2 port.
#6
I don't know what the fuss with PS/2 is about :roll:. If necessary, just use a PS/2 to USB adapter/cable for peripherals with no native USB connection:

Slim USB 2.0 to PS/2 Adapter Dongle = $2.56

USB to PS2 Cable = $3.50

I use the latter & it works very well :thumbsup:

Btw, there are cheaper ones around, e.g. this one @ $1.07, but read the 2nd review by indask8 to avoid possible disappointment.

P.S. xe.com for approx currency conversion if you must convert, you HUKD cheapskates :p

Really, £4.99 for a bog-standard keyboard isn't very good... Not to mention the lack of multimedia keys and the silly misplacement of the '#' key (above return with an elongated return, as opposed to beside it with a taller return key). You can get better keyboards for the same or not much more in other stores (without looking, I'd say savastore and ebuyer probably have them). The only plus is free delivery, but a cheap rubbish keyboard is still rubbish. Sorry, but cold from me.

Just noticed, the backslash key has also gone for a walk... Why do they change these things? :/

Ah yes, I probably bought the same one, less than a year old and half the text has rubbed off, still it's teaching me to touch type, which I could never do before. :)

The wireless ones do seem to vary drastically, the Dell one on my wife's PC is about 4 years old, keyboard batteries are still originals, mouse batteries last about 9 months. A cheapie one I bought from PC World, mouse batteries lasted about 3 weeks.!

I doubt if there are many mainstream PCs less than 5 years old around that actually have PS/2 connections, the 3 in my house don't anyway.

Very, very cold. You can buy a standard USB keyboard for no more than £2 at Tesco on the end of the isle deals.

If i can have a picture proof of this or you post it as a deal then i would be happy to accept what you are saying.

Labtec is a good reliable company, were not talking Tesco Value here ;-)
#12
er, well, let's not go too far - Labtec are not a good, reliable company... Their stuff tends to be better than other no-name rebranded products, but not by a huge amount (I say this after two nicely designed but now broken Labtec low-profile multimedia keyboards)
#13
Labtec is owned and controlled by logitech so therefore has at least some reputation and some experience behind it, its their 'no frills' brand i guess
#14
Cold.

Pretty much the same price everywhere - and in fact cheaper everywhere else pretty much if you exclude postage.

Certainly not cheap for a bog standard entry level keyboard - have to agree with the above poster in that it isnt exactly "reliable" - just marginally better than a complete no name.

how this has hit the front page I'll never know.
#15
just bought one, pointless wasting the petrol to go to town to buy one.

hot IMHO

Well ask the people who have voted hot for it. Seems its just a minority who finds this such an awful deal to vote it cold.

Over 100 degrees cant be bad ;-)
#17
I notice no-one has posted a link to anything cheaper, delivered. it'll do me for a cheap keyboard.

I'm not going to vote but I have the multimedia version of this keyboard and it's rubbish. I ended up throwing it across the room and plugging in my 6 year old keyboard instead. The keys kept sticking and sometimes they wouldn't respond. They don't have as much feedback either but that's more of a personal preference.
#19
Not very often I vote cold as I appreciate the time it takes people to post up, but sorry this is not exactly a mind-blowing money-saver. Cheap keyboards can be had from pretty much everywhere now and not much call for PS2 at that. USB is the way to go these days. Cold.
#20
People will vote anything hot.
#21
My no-name from novatech was not only cheaper than this but came with those gimmicky 'sleep' and 'power off' buttons as well as a completely obsolete way to change the autorepeat speed without going into control panel.
Cold.

Sorry friend but not even on HDUK do logical fallacies mean a deal is a good one.
#22
PS/2???....lolololololol!!!!!!!

Since when has £5 for a standard PS/2 keyboard been a good deal?

The only good thing about it is that it's delivered, for those people that don't have anywhere nearby, or are just too lazy to go look.

This kind of thing drives me nuts, why can't they stick to the conventional layout? "Hunt and peck"ers probably won't be too bothered, but if you touch type these stupid keyboards make life difficult.

If anyone is after a reasonably good quality keyboard with the keys in the traditional places then I can recommend the basic black Kensington PS2/USB keyboard e.g. the one sold by ebuyer. It's just over a fiver + delivery, but is leagues apart from the average no-name crap and has taken a pounding on my PC for the last few years. Not in the same league as an IBM Model M, but good enough for most people.

In general I suggest people avoid the crappy cheap multimedia keyboards, since you inevitably have to install extra drivers to get the extra keys to work, and they are most always unsigned, unstable rubbish.
#28
Firstly, if someone could explain to me how a USB over PS/2 connection improves a keyboard's performace, that'd be great.

Secondly, since when do motherboards not come with PS/2 sockets any more?
A random selction of 2 (1 AMD, 1 Intel) fairly new motherboards gives me:
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Asus-M4A78T-E-AMD-790GX-AM3-PCI-E-20-(x16)-DDR3-1600(OC)-1333-SATA-II-SATA-RAID-ATX-VGA
and
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Asus-P6T-Deluxe-V2-Intel-X58-S1366-PCI-E-20-(x16)-Triple-DDR3-2000(OC)-1866(OC)-1600(OC)-ATX
Both with PS/2 sockets...
