It's a solid keyboard for the price with a very good warranty.

Keyboards in this price range (from reputable makers) are all mostly going to be roughly the same quality. For around twenty dollars you don't get mechanical switches --you get bubble membranes, as in most keyboards. Kensington executes that sort of a keyboard entirely competently, which is to be expected since the company has been around for a while. There's nothing outstanding, but that's a good thing. There are no goofy shaped space bars annoyingly small right shift or anything other little things to bother you. It's just a full sized keyboard.

It advertises itself as spill resistant, but most cheap keyboards will rinse off fine and continue to work after drying out so that's less impressive than it sounds.

Where it stands out is in the warranty. You won't get anything like it with other cheap keyboards Kensington isn't some fly by night operation, they've been in business for a while and I doubt they're going anywhere. If your keyboard breaks, they'll send you another one. That's pretty handy.

Does the job, but you can tell it is poorly made...Too much light escapes from around the keys and the only way to eliminate that annoying glow is to type looking straight down to it...Lack of quality is apparent in how the keys sound when struck and the overall lack of finesse...

I bought this for my parents, and they don 't have any issues with it, but when i type on it, the keys arent high enough, and i feel as if its tough compared to the keyboard i bought from a local electronic store, which has high tactile keys which i purchased for the same price.

Give this a shot, but i recommend you try your local electronic store first.

This is just a standard keyboard, and although it's not mentioned in the product description, it's fully functional with my MacBook Pro. (Mac users take note, there's no Function key, as you would find on a Mac keyboard, and I haven't found a way yet to assign it to another one.)

Side note about it being "for life". They make this claim because the internal circuitry is sealed, so if you spill liquid on it, it won't short out. Just had a small (accidental) test run of this feature, and it seems to be working fine.

At $15, it's hard to find anything wrong with it.

Edit: 4 months (and 2 spills) later, I can say the keyboard still works fine and has saved me considerable aggravation. It's a keeper.

Great keyboard March 16 2006
By JTM - Published on Amazon.com
I ordered this keyboard because it was cheap, USB, and looked nice. Upon receiving it, I'm pleased with it. Installation is a breeze, there are no drivers with it, XP recognizes it and installs it with no work on my part. It has an extremely slim profile with the legs down, and the feel and response of the keys is very nice.

Two things keep me from giving this 5 stars.

1. The space bar squeeks sometimes when it is pressed. I haven't been using the keyboard for very long, so we'll see if it goes away or gets worse.

2. The backspace key is smaller than my previous keyboard's was. Because of that I end up hitting '\' quite often instead of backspace. Odds are I'll get used to it though.

Outside of those two things, Kensington makes a decent keyboard, which will hopefully last for quite a while. All in all, it's a nice keyboard with a great feel to it.

Beware...Kensington Changed The Design Feb. 24 2009
By Mark A. Manolio - Published on Amazon.com
I just bought a second one of these but it is NOT the same design as the last one. The model number now has an "A" suffix: K64370A instead of K64370. It is a new "slim profile" design without the metal backplate but is actually sturdier, especially if the rear legs are opened, due to its use of molded plastic "spines" instead of the "tacked on" metal backplate of the previous model. It is not as heavy but seems even more solid. The main keys are the same full size but are quieter (less "clacky" and not as wobbly) and slimmer. The "F" keys are now smaller and the key cluster above the arrow keys is now only 6 keys instead of 9. Yes, those pesky "power" keys are gone. It still has the "limited lifetime warranty" and sealed membrane to resist spills. I actually like this design a bit better so I am going to keep it. Amazon does need to update their listing though with a new description and photo. It is however beginning to look like the end of the road for those that really want a real, old-style full-size keyboard.

A good keyboard... Feb. 6 2007
By H. L. Berger - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
We were looking to replace our current keyboard with something that would do the basic things we needed it to. This keyboard is the most basic, but you would expect that with the price that it is. When we got it home and hooked it up, we discovered that the keyboard did not have "legs" on the back to angle it upward (our previous one had done that and it made typing more comfortable). It lays perfectly flat, unless you prop up the back some other way. Otherwise, it works fine for what we need it to do, and it has served our purposes. In the future, we wouldn't buy this one, however, because it does make typing less comfortable.

mushy, inconsistent keys Oct. 19 2007
By C. Cosner - Published on Amazon.com
The keys on the one I received do not have a consistent feel across the keyboard. Several don't respond to the same level of pressure as the other keys. This makes the keyboard useless for someone who really types fast.
This keyboard also mushy, in the sense that your keystrokes decelerate more quickly at the end of the stroke into a mush rather than a solid tap.
In contrast, good keyboards for fast typing give increasing resistance up to a point and then less resistance down to solid contact at the bottom. You get a feel for where that resistance breaks (and the letter types), and you can type without hitting the bottom hard on most strokes. On a mushy keyboard like this one, you're never sure if your keystroke has registered, so after typing several sentences missing half the letters, you hit the keys harder to compensate.
The spillproof design is interesting though. Not sure why more keyboards don't feature this.

bakc\\ckspaec\\ key, I loev\\ it Jan. 8 2007
By R. P. Henerey - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this for the spill-proof bit after ruining a few kbs. Ironically since then - a year - no spill has tested it LOL.

But for a cheap unit it has a nice approximation of the clicky-ness of an IBM Model 5 (still the best). I've used a lot of cheap units and the extra metal spine on this gives a slightly more solid feel. I don't mind the extra keys above Home etc, no prob, but I must admit htign\\\\itting the backspace key accurately has been a problem. And I'm not even a touch typist.

Other than that, well worth the bucks.
