+ £6.95 P&P in N.Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and UK islands.

EDIT: You beat me to it ElBuc!

Might want to mention the postage is 4.95, puts it up for 5.90 overall.
But then again at play they're around 16 - 20 pounds per, so guess it's not a bad deal.
Edit:
Pah beaten to it >.

I feel a bit bad because it was a first post - divado please don't let this put you off posting. It's usually good to put an example of "next best price" so you can compare the item with others for sale... and add delivery to the title of course.

Aha, whoops @ my awful geography skills!

Good find. Probably a daft question, but does anyone know if there is a USB cable permanently attached to this OR is it a seperate item?

Under my Firefox, if you use the link above, none of the add to basket..etc buttons appear. I suspect this is where the 'out of stock' reply came from.

If this happens, select Sale -> Gadgets & Computing and its the first item on the list.

Yes Sin you're right... also under IE too. NOT out of stock.

I have one of these, and although they're not bad, they can be quite unresponsive. You have to hammer the keys !

You're far too polite. They are utterly useless Waste of money, no matter how cheap.

Isn't expired, can someone take expired off please?

I've had one of these before. I thought it would be ideal as I snack at the computer and end up with crumby keyboards :oops:.

I have never used such a dreadful keyboard in my life. The only good thing I have to say about it, is that it is quiet to type on. You have to batter the keys like mad, and the space bar and return keys are dreadful. You have to hit them exactly where the little sensors are in the keys, and its really difficult to hit them spot on. There are only two on the space bar, at each end, so not naturally where your thumbs hit it. So you will find that you end up with all your words stuck together, VERY frustrating and it never gets any better.

I worked as a secretary for years, and touch type every day, and this keyboard is the worst EVER. Within a week my hands were killing me. I would not recommend this for anyone, it's a false economy.

they are very good in some respects - i got one from dealextreme - i've set it up with a cheap mouse for the kids to use the laptop i donated to them - this way they don't ruin the lappy keyboard and trackpad with crumbs or drink or overuse.

they can work it fine - then again, they're not touch typing.

These are only good as an emergency spare if your current keyboard stops workin.As was said before you need to hammer the keys and you wont be breaking any typing records with it.
As an everyday keyboard I wouldn't recommend this .

Is it ZX81 bad?

utter useless company. Takes the order and then sends the out of stock letters.If you happen to include some other cheap items in your item you end up paying full delivery charges. You need to pay for returns and they don't refund the delivery charges.
I won't touch them with a barge pole in future.
