Gamers will appreciate its optimal tuning for 'Larry the Lounge Lizard' and the included PS/2 adapter makes it perfect for checking out PacMan on IBM's original PC.

Less racy folks who dislike spending more on basic input then they did on their £30 RaspberryPi may even appreciate its price tag a little more. Its basic but it does the job.

Free delivery if you throw in a packet of cable ties (always useful) to make the checkout price to a fiver before vat. Free delivery is usually a couple of days.

It is the nameless LK500 model you may find cheaper on fleabay if you are prepared to wait a couple of months for delivery from the Middle Kingdom and do without customer service in case you want to return it.

You might get it lower by juggling the sizes ;-)
Now, 401 things to do with a cable tie?

Heat just for the middle kingdom comment.

IBM's original PC keyboard used a DIN serial connector, none of this new-fangled PS/2 rubbish.

Yes! Why spend more than you need to? If its just to enter a few CLI characters or click a menu. Its the computer that's supposed to be doing the work.

Of course if you are typing the next great British novel I have been tempted to spend 30 or 40 quid on a really nice one. But it didn't make it any better <:-(

**brainsys** for what it is worth I use a Wireless Keyboard K350 for Business UK layout
Logitech and a Logitech MX Anywhere Mouse (Tracks on Glass)

Slightly cheaper if you go via this link

My first PC had an AT keyboard, I thought PS/2 keyboards were dead modern.

And I use Keysonic Wireless KSK-3201 on all my company computers. They are beautifully compact and feel great. Except you can't get them anymore. But wasted on an RPi for my little grandkids who will break anything real quick plus mine! Also I have one as an emergency server console keyboard in the garage.

There is a place for 'nasty' but cheap keyboards. So this is ideal. YMMV.

Voted cold and expired - both the deal item, and the cheaper version Chada posted, attract a £2.50 plus VAT "handling fee" when you go to checkout. That £5.08 item is actually £8.08 at checkout - a 60% higher price

That's why you have to add the cable ties to take it over £5 (ex-VAT) for free delivery.
