Customer Reviews

First one was defective, and sadly so was the second one as well. I usually like Kensington Products. They aren't necessarily top of the line, but they are not the worse either. Sadly I have to give this one star. The first one I received from Amazon, the Space bar and the "F" key would work intermittently.But things happen to even the best of products, so I figure I would return it and get another one. Amazon as usual was quick and seamless with regards to the return/exchange process.Sadly my replacement, has problems as well. This time it is the backspace that worse intermittently. Not worth it to exchange again, so I'll get another keyboard. Sorry but I cannot recommend this product. 1Solid and elegant keyboard with all the functionality you want, at a damn good price. I recently switched from a Mac to a PC and I immediately missed the flat Macintosh keyboard with its quiet, equally flat keys. The Kensington Slim Type Wired Keyboard is more than a mere replacement more than twice as heavy as the Macintosh keyboards, is has a very solid feel to it. Its hefty weight, paired with rubber pads on the bottom, also prevents the keyboard from being moved around accidentally; it stays where you want it until you lift it up and reposition it. While the look is very elegant and minimalistic, the Kensington provides all the functionality you'd expect and want in a Windows keyboard, with the addition of shortcuts to some of the most commonly accessed functions (mail client, My Computer, etc.) as well as volume controls and even a "Sleep" button that eliminates the need to access an onscreen menu. Last but not least, it has an indicator light that tells you when CapsLock is activated particularly helpful when entering passwords. Typing is whisper quiet (a drawback only for those who like the acoustic feedback of a more traditional keyboard). If you yearn for elegance, functionality, and the exact opposite of flimsy, this keyboard's for you. Last but certainly not least, it comes with a very attractive price tag, to boot. 5Good travel + firm keypresses + slim profile = great keyboard I'm a software developer, and I really enjoy typing on laptop-style "chiclet" keyboards for their low-profile keys and swift travel from one key to the next while typing. When searching for chiclet style external keyboards for my desktop computer, I came across this this model which seemed promising, and figured I'd give it a try.I first purchased one of these Kensington keyboards about seven months ago for use at home when working on personal projects. I used it often, and I liked it so much that I later bought a second one for use exclusively at the office. The slim profile is great, and the keyboard looks very sleek - but most importantly, it's a pleasure to type on. Each keypress resists just enough to feel firm and require a deliberate press, but not so much that it becomes a burden over time. The keys are thin and travel is quick, which makes typing on this keyboard very easy and fast for me. I easily get around 100 wpm or more on this model, which is about 10 wpm more than I normally get when typing on my Logitech G15 gaming keyboard. Additionally, the keyboard generally feels to be of good quality, especially given the price point. The keys do not feel too plasticy, and they barely wobble when pressed.One con that I will mention about this keyboard is that the layout feels a bit off on first use, and took a little getting used to for me. It seems as though the keys from the center to the right of the keyboard are slightly shifted from where I would expect them to be based on my usage of other keyboards, and the function ("Fn") key on the lower left is a bit wider than on most other keyboards that have one. Fortunately, I was able to get used to this rather quickly, and it ended up not being an issue for me in day-to-day use. I also feel that the keyboard is not quite as ergonomic as I would prefer, and I think it would have benefited from the inclusion of a palm rest - this is of course subjective.Overall, I think this is a fantastic keyboard, especially for those who do a lot of typing throughout the day. For the price, there's not much to lose in giving it a try. 5Quiet and very high quality Keyboard preferences are obviously personal, but this one was perfect for me.Positives (for me):1. Very quiet; no clackety-clank2. Quality feel, similar to high-end Mac keyboards3. Longer throw than most chiclet-style boards but shorter than typical "mechanicals"4. Weighted base and rubber feet hold it still5. Low profile6. Two tilt positions (flip-out props)7. Price -- I like it better than "mechanicals" at 3X the price8. Black with easy-to-see lettering and graphics -- premium-product looksNegatives: Made in China(Nothing personal, the Chinese make some wonderful products, but I'll pay more for American.)This keyboard has every bit of the quality feel of my Mac bluetooth board but with a full complement of keys and slightly longer throw.I'm using an IOGEAR switch to swap this among 3 desktops and whichever laptop or tablet I happen to plug in. One of the desktops is an iMac and one laptop is a Mac; the rest are Windows. I have about 10 keyboards, and, after a month of use, this is my (hands-down) favorite. 5The keyboard works perfectly and the keys are quiet If your looking for a keyboard that is actually quiet when you click the keys then stop and just order this one. I spent hours looking for a quiet keyboard where the product description says the keyboard is quiet or reviews that said "this keyboard is quiet" just to go watch a YouTube video of someone testing it to find out that it's really loud when you click the keys. That is not the case with this keyboard. This keyboard is quiet when you click the keys. Sure there is a little noise but it is certainly nothing compared to the keyboards that clickety clack. The spacebar does make more noise than the keys but it still is quite quiet.The cord is about 6ft long and seems to be made well. The keyboard also seems to be made pretty good. The keyboard does have two little kick stands on the back so that you can raise it up or have it lay flat. The num lock, caps lock, and scroll lock each have a light that turns on when they are activated. The keyboard also has shortcuts for raising and lowering volume, changing songs, the calculator, and putting the computer to sleep. I find these to be very convenient.The keyboard also does come with a warranty but just be aware that I read the fine print and you need to ship back the old keyboard (you pay) and then you get a new one.Overall though this keyboard has saved my ears and sanity and I love it. It works perfectly and I haven't had any problems with any of the keys not working or anything. Also if you are looking for a quiet mouse then save some time and get this one Kensington Silent Mouse-for-Life Wired USB Mouse - Black (K72110US). It is from the same brand and it does still make a little clicking noise but it is much quieter than nearly ever other mouse out there. 5Quieter, but not quite silent - good enough for now! I was looking for a QUIET wired keyboard because I work from home and often have conference calls where I need to type - hearing the clicking of a keyboard is extremely distracting! I did not want wireless, because I would never remember to charge it (batteries might be okay though). It took me a long time to find an actual quieter keyboard, I went through at least 10 keyboards that claimed to be quiet or silent and were not. It was frustrating search! Although the keys on this keyboard are set up a slightly different than what I'm used to, I decided it was worth using it for a while to see if I could get used to the keyboard layout - I did, so this is the one I kept. It's not 100% silent, however, it is far quieter than any other keyboard I tried that claimed to be quiet/silent. In fact, my 9 year old son came into my office space one day and remarked that my typing didn't wake him up (as it usually does in the morning). This keyboard is very nice to type on - I feel like I actually type faster, and my fingers don't seem to get as tired. I'm going to order another one for the office, so that in the rare event I'm there, I have the same keyboard! It's quite slim - I had to get a wrist rest that wasn't as think so my fingers didn't have to reach down when typing.Pros:QuieterComfortable to type on (I can feel the keys depress, but my fingers don't have to work so hard)Cons:Keyboard layout is not typical - took about 2 weeks to really get used it itI would have given it 5 stars if the layout was typical. Maybe one day, someone will make a truly silent keyboard (obviously, your fingers/nails will make noise, but otherwise silent) , but until then, this one will work nicely. 4Fantastic to type on, but squeaky keys. I have very mixed opinions on this keyboard. Most importantly, its wonderful to type on. The keys have a lower actuation force than Apple's chiclet keyboard and have a great feel for typing. The keyboard looks good too and its very thin. The feet put the keys at a comfortable angle for me to type on as well. When typing you'll notice that the scissor switch keys are quieter than the basic rubber dome office keyboard is. The keyboard does have a nonstandard modifier layout but its something you'll adjust to very quickly. It has convenient buttons for mute and volume up/down.My biggest issue with this keyboard is the quality. After using this keyboard daily at work for about 9 months the backspace key has begun to squeak loudly. Its very obnoxious and ruins what would otherwise be a 5 star keyboard. However the typing performance for the price has led me to order another one for use at home. If that one stands up better over time I'll add stars to this review. 3If you enjoy POUNDING keyboards, this one is for you!! If you want a QUIET keyboard, this may work for you. If you want a keyboard that requires POUNDING to achieve keystrokes, this may work for you, but if pounding isn't your typing style, KEEP LOOKING!!! I would have maybe given this keyboard 2 if reviewed the day I received it, but after using it for several months, I have come to hate it -- would give it minus 5 stars, if I could. My accuracy and speed dropped dramatically because I don't pound keyboards, and this requires very heavy fingers to achieve keystrokes. The spacing of the keys is also just a little off, which a person does learn after using it awhile, but it still isn't quite "there". I finally bought a new keyboard (Xcellon KU-AH300B) and cannot believe how fast and accurate my typing is!!! I have had other Kensington products which I absolutely love, but this keyboard is a big miss. I would never buy it again, and would only recommend it to someone looking for a keyboard which requires a pounding style of typing. 1This is THE one! I spend several hours a day at my computer. My business depends on my rapid response to email inquiries from my website(s).I'm also a speed typist. I guess that's why I shy away from texting, because I don't like to communicate at 10% speed!My old Sony Vaio keyboard has been passed down through several iterations of new computers... tossing the $5 keyboard that came with each new machine in favor of Sony's tactile feel and real rotary knob volume control. However, I finally had to admit it was time to retire my beloved keyboard. Skipped keys, and most all of the lettering worn off the keypads.After a lot of research, I settled on this Kensington, based on many other favorable reviews.Well, I'm just in the first few hours of ownership, but I'm already in love, and the old VAIO keyboard has already been relegated to my Smithsonian collection!Things I love about this keyboard:*) Nice mechanical tactile feel of the keys*) A good full-sized keyboard with ample spacing in between keys to accommodate my less-than-delicate paws*) Quick and responsive. I can't seem to get "ahead" of it, as was sometimes the case with the old one*) 9 different angles available with multi-height front and rear supports (well.. if you consider front UP and back DOWN a useable typing position!)*) Effortless installation.. Take it out of the box, plug in to a USB port, and start typing*) PERFECT permanent wrist pad in front. Now I can toss my separate dirty foam wrist pad which always winds up on the floor*) BEST OF ALL: Those pre-programmed buttons at the keyboard top. And, they work perfectly from the git-go.. no programming, no device driver disk, just works. Buttons are available to: a) Bring up the My Computer File Explorer window (I only do this about 50 times a day) b) Start a new window of your default browser c) Bring up your default music/media player and with dedicated play/pause/skip/stop buttons d) Volume Mute/Up/Down e) Bring your default email program into focus f) Open your computer SEARCH screen g) CalculatorI would buy this keyboard again just to have all those functions available. I can see this is going to save me substantial time daily.Finally, according to the included paperwork, this keyboard has a LIFETIME (limited) warranty!! Really? In these days of 90 day warranty for multi-thousand dollar devices? Just amazing.I almost feel like just going ahead and ordering another of these keyboards just to have as a spare it case they quit making them.I think this must be the very best keyboard available at any price. Why didn't I get one of these keyboards two years ago! 5Whisper quiet, solid construction **updated 05/17** I'll never order Amazon Basics or $12 Logitech keyboards again, for myself nor my office. This Kensington keyboard is *super* quiet! I am a quiet keyboard aficionado - I tear down keyboards and lubricate them with ultra-expensive DuPont lubricants just to experiment with noise reduction. I roll my eyes at what the novice user deems to be "quiet." Believe me - when it comes to something straight out of the box, this keyboard is as close to dead silent as I've found. It's slim, sleek, and the keys have a low profile. It is noticeably heavier than the above-mentioned economy keyboards, but I attribute that to higher quality construction materials.Be aware of the added Function key (Fn) between the CTRL and ALT keys, next to the windows key. If you're not accustomed to this type of keyboard layout and do a lot of copy/pasting, then you may find yourself WIN+C instead of CTRL+C as a product of muscle memory, or vice versa.You should also know that there is no good way to take apart this keyboard for cleaning. You can remove the rubber stoppers on the back and behind the legs to remove the back half of the frame, but the front piece is firmly affixed to the metal frame. This means cleaning has to take place from the front, which is both a PIA and somewhat risky due to the delicate nature of the chiclet keys. For those who do want to try their hand at disassembly, know that there is no screw behind the foil sticker on back center.My advice for cleaning is pick up the OXO Good Grips Electronics Cleaning Brush as a less-than-$5 add-on item and do the following in this order:1) With your system off or keyboard unplugged, use the crevice tool end to clean debris off the keycaps' stepped edge.2) Hold 3 or 4 keys down with one hand and use the brush end of the tool to loosen debris under the edge of the keys above. Example: hold down ASDF to very gently brush away debris under the lower end of QWER.3) Flip the keyboard upside down and tap the back a few times. Don't lay the keyboard down on its keys - keep it raised off of your typing surface.4) Turn the keyboard back over and blow out all loose debris with canned air.Do this every week or so instead of waiting until they keyboard gets gummed up and it will work well for years.** Update May 2017 **My first keyboard failed shortly after I got it and was replaced at no cost under Kensington's warranty. It was a dud; it happens sometimes. But the replacement keyboard has been running strong for nearly 3 years now. This is my office keyboard and I work in IT, so I code and type emails on this thing for ~8 hours every weekday. I wish Kensington made a TKL (ten keyless) and/or wireless version. 5
