Well, it’s the end of our little keyboard extravaganza. I thought I should summarize and link to the various reviews in case you missed one and are in the market for a nice, shiny new keyboard. Click the pictures to check ‘em out, or click “more” to get the capsule version of each review.
Pro: Gorgeous. Touch controls work great. Backlit. Anti-ghosting on WASD. USB and audio ports. Very customizable software.
Con: Feels breakable – not cheap, but breakable. Slightly shallow key travel.
Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 7000
Pro: Customizable touch keys work great. Wireless. Many extra buttons if you like that.
Con: Weird key layout, tiny Ctrl key. F-keys not separated. Bundled mouse sucks.
Pro: Bombproof. Works with little or no configuration. Unlimited keydowns. Mechanical action means it’s durable and comfortable to type on. USB and audio ports.
Con: Heavy as hell. Media keys work but are kind of inconvenient. Wrist rest not up to the keyboard’s standards. No customization possible. European-style Backspace/Enter keys.
Pro: Strong, clicky type. Mechanical action plus audio and tactile feedback. Simple if you like that. USB ports.
Con: no media controls or customization options.
That’s all for now, folks. Hope you found this helpful!
