I've had this keyboard for a few years and I've not had any problems with mine (and I am a heavy typer)
How long is the cable?
Wot, no PS/2 connection?!

I think they are trying to make USB-C the future, still USB though

No harm done. I do actually have a PS /2 to usb adaptor just in case!

Dome switches, what every cheap keyboard will use. If your asking that, this isn't the keyboard for you
I rather pay more for volume keys.
navisoul0201/05/2020 14:49

I rather pay more for volume keys.


More of them? (A greater volume of keys)
Louder? (Noisier keys when using them)
Or with keys that operate the volume of your PC? (volume up, volume down)
We need to know!!

You plonker - now everyone knows your password is S T I G B I T
Thank you! Was looking for one as WFH and didnt want to spend stupid money on a keyboard! This is ideal and cheap! WOOP!
Personally I'd rather spend a few £ more and get one with additional features. This Microsoft one is £7.99 ebay.co.uk/itm…ATd

Apologies for annoying you

Honestly, if you're using your keyboard enough that you're wearing it out, treat yourself to a quality model. Paying 10x this amount might sound like a lot, but a quality £60 keyboard will last you for years, and see you through however many hundreds of thousands of keypresses with speed and comfort, and with the added convenience of things like media keys, or macro keys. This keyboard will do the job as a spare or something basic just to fill a space, but it's bottom-of-the-barrel stuff, and not an upgrade by any stretch of the imagination.

It's a Qwertity keyboard.
Cheers OP just bought two. I really can only use a keyboard that has the big chunky type of Enter. They seem to be phasing them out more in favour of the US Standard Layout with the much slimmer Enter Key.

Probably they do it so that it is harder to accidentally press "Enter".

I was about to say the same thing - if you are a heavy enough user to wear out a keyboard - spend a little less on reduced goose fat or 3 easter eggs for 50p and get a good keyboard.
I bought this as I needed something cheap and cheerful for my new build. It's extremely basic, but I don't mind.

What would be ideal is if I can somehow create a volume shortcut for this keyboard as I can't currently use it to control the volume. Does anyone know if this is possible?
