This keyboard is in today's office depot weekly ad so you could try to do a price match at a Staples store and then use the $5 off $25 staples coupon in staples ad, YMMV on them letting you do a PM and using a coupon.
Literally just bought one of these YESTERDAY, and the Q and Y do not work.
got one when it was $12(?) at BB a while back. worth it for that, probably not for $20. for a little more you can get something nicer.
dont get me wrong it does work, and solves a problem for most folk (mouse and keyboard on the couch). but neither the trackpad positioning nor the keyboard layout do you any real favors. i wouldnt ever want to use this as a primary keyboard. even a proper laptop keyboard feels more natural, the keys on this just feel small and cramped when they shouldnt be for its size.
I agree with you; not only do the keys feel cramped, worse than on an 11" Acer ultrabook even, they also feel cheap.
But what would you suggest?
FYI post, typing this on the one I got one at amazon. Smaller keys but I find that it works great, touchpad is sensitive and effective on win7 with good range. Key layout a bit dif. but easy to get used to, I wear large sized loves.
I have made it my primary keyboard vs a logitech k800 except when I need the backlight. Only thing I feel its missing is a number pad.
If you have any use for multimedia control or to lose a few wires, gain deskspace it's definitely worth considering at this price.
I have many Logitech mouse and keyboard. they have good quality. I had this keyboard, but had to return it. it is cheaply made. touchpad is barely usable. if this keybard costs $10, I would not event buy it.
When buying this keyboard, make sure it has the Windows 8 icon (like this http://icons.iconarchive.com/icon...o-icon.png ) instead of the wavy Windows 7 icon (the button between CTRL and ALT). This way you know it will work with Windows 8's dumb swipe from sides stuff if you ever need it in the future. The old one might not work for that so better to get the newer version that has Win8 compatibility than try your luck with the older one.
I bought this thing a year ago. I was reluctant because it's basically a no name item, in fact several people sell with a different name on amazon. Only posting this because it is a smaller option and it has worked surprisingly very well on my home theater PC. One thing it lacks that would be nice is backlit keys: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...00_s01_i00
