Very Good KB have these at university

Seems a good USB Keyboard to me for under £9 delivered. Would be interested if anyone had more feedback re: the "Curve" - If they use a different KB all day at work say.

I use a diff keyboard at home and the above at university. Ordered the above for home too

Very good keyboard. Would recommend. Although they may look odd, they are a hell of a lot comfier to type on than others. Heat added

EDIT: Also its worth mentioning, the volume up and down + the play pause buttons at the top are extremely useful. They work in almost any program (itunes, spotify, media player etc) even if minimised. Great for £9.

I bought one these for home a couple years ago, after using it at university.

The only keyboard I'd rather have is the Apple keyboard.

+1 Agreed

Ordered :thumbsup: Nice one :-D

Highly recommended, I use an even more ergonomic one now (Microsoft 4000) but I got on well with it and it is still useful to me as a second keyboard for use with consoles etc

ms keyboard for 9 pound is worth

The Asda Smartprice keyboard at £5 is all you need.

I can recommend this keyboard. We got one of these in at work and we were so impressed now almost everyone has one. It is very similar to using a laptop keyboard in terms of the keys being very light which is great if you spend all day touch typing.

The hotkeys are also fairly good (*although could still be better) - calculator, and multimedia keys.

I would recommend spending the extra and getting one of these over a generic USB keyboard. It is much better build quality too and will last you well past what I consider £8 worth of value.

The ASDA generic keyboards work fine but they also break fairly quickly - they also have fairly small keys on the bottom row (CTRL, WIN, ALT, et al) that my little finger just cannot reach. Spacebar on them is fairly good. If you type more than very casually I think it is worth the extra £3 for a real keyboard with a full sized keys however...

Plus the calculator button is fun.

Very comfy keyboard, much nicer to use for normal stuff than my Logitech G15. Never really use the Media keys but other people seem to when using my computer. Touch typing on these is very nice, keys are all placed nicely.

I just need to learn how to touch type and not just one finger on each hand! Any tips?!

Make it impossible, even if you look down, to see your keyboard. Literally put a barrier between your eyes and keyboard. Then type - as you normally would. You will likely discover that you already know how to touch type and looking is just a habit you have... Might take two weeks but after that you will never try and look at your keyboard again.

hi guys, honestly cant believe all the positive feedback on this keyboard! we have a load of these at work, prob about 400-500 or so, and i know thats a lot but we have had probably 10% of that number coming up with faulty keys and have to send them off for replacements. staff hate them (as they are flat keys as opposed to the chunkier old style ones) and arent as easy to type fast on. also there are some odd shaped keys, not all standard square size and i for one always mis hit keys which i wouldnt on a normal one (main example is the small "enter" button not a larger one)

they might be decent for home/consumer use but in a heavy use environment or for touch typists i wouldnt reccomend them, theyre pretty poor imo. cant comment on price as these are pretty disposable for us lol!

not trying to bash the deal, not going to vote hot or cold either way, but just hope this helps someone!

Thanks, can you teach yourself how to use all your fingers aswell? Maybe some kind of DVD training?
