Got a couple of these last week - nice compact size, buttons a bit "clicky" - only real shortcoming is the short length of the USB lead - barely reaches down to the PC - you might need a short USB extension cable.

A fiver because it's carp.

Not keen on the position of some of the keys, but that is to be expected due to the compact layout.
Would agree the keys are a little clicky and don't feel particularly robust.

I am (perhaps unfairly) drawing comparisons with a G-Series, so I reckon it's still a good price if you need a cheap keyboard.

why would you want a flat keyboard btw? only reason that comes to mind for me is if it needs to be quiet due to computer being in front room or something.

cant complain for a fiver

quality keyboard, especially at this price!!

Shorter key travel = faster typing & less effort per key press. You'd probably need to be able to touch type to notice the difference mind.

I used to have this but it drove me nuts after a few months. The buttons are so loud and horrible, so clicky. After a few months the buttons will feel so hard to press. I since bought a logitech compact keyboard k300 which is FAR better.

I am voting this hot though because it really is a good price if your budget is very low.

I've had two of these - great to start out with but within a few months the keys feel crunchy and horrible - best avoided!

Been using one of these for 2/3 years now, I much prefer the flat keys compared to normal ones.

The only annoyance is that the numpad is too close to the main keyboard, but for a fiver you really can't complain.

I'd like to point out the printing on these cheap Logitech keyboards is pretty bad. I accidentally dropped a pen lid on my 'V' key and a piece of it came off.

I can touch-type and personally I find this is a good keyboard for touch-typing. Except the "Insert" key is in the "wrong" position... too close to Delete and Backspace keys. Touch it "accidentally" and you're in over-typing mode. Great value when it's just a fiver.

Had this keyboard for about 18 months and using it now. For a fiver, it's a no-brainer.. It's a quality keyboard.

It depends on your needs. You get what you paid for (~£10 RRP)

This is a sexy keyboard for a fiver.

This keyboard focus toward its style and size. (and the price)

Recommend for occasional user and those who need to carry a keyboard around for whatever reasons.

Probably should use a "proper" desktop keyboard if you intend to type frequently.

there's a reason why offices usually have raised key keyboards (typically those generic HP ones).

raised keyboards > flat:

- adult hands can easily cover all the letters with both hands on a full size keyboard so there's not much a difference in travel time. you're more prone to mistakes on a compact keyboard since you have a slight range for error on full size.
- the pressure aspect makes full size keyboards more accurate also
- more likely to get RSI with a compact keyboard

that's my experience using both types of keyboards for about 15 years in total.

20p extra for this one

A decent, but not great price, for a DREADFUL product.

MS Comfort Curve is WORTH £5 more.

RSI here we come

I have his keyboard and it's pretty rubbish. It's maybe just about worth a fiver; if you need a cheap keyboard for very occasional use then it'll be ok. But if you're going to be using it even semi-regularly then go for something that costs a little more.

This keyboard is uncomfortable to use, flimsy (mine bends in the middle when you type on it), has a short cord and spongy keys with hardly any travel on them. Avoid.

Yes because they're cheaper.

The question was why would someone want a flat keyboard, not a compact one. The travel I was referring to is the depression of the keys not the distance to get to the keys. A full size keyboard with flat keys will blow a traditional one out of the water if operated by a competent user.
