Perfect compact keyboard,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perixx PERIBOARD-407B, Mini Keyboard - Wired USB Interface - Piano Black - 320x141x25mm Dimension - Chiclet Key Design - UK Layout (Accessory)
So many manufacturers make keyboards with duff layouts that every time I come to buy a new keyboard I despair that I might not find one that:
has a normally-sized ESC button (i.e. not a tiny one added on as an afterthought)
has a normally sized Backspace button where you expect to find it
has a normally sized Enter button
has function keys that go all the way up to 12
has Home, End and Page Up/Down buttons (incredibly I see keyboards without these)
doesn't have a Sleep button that you can accidentally hit as part of your normal typing (duh!)
has properly sized arrow buttons in the normal arrangement not squashed in amongst 10 other keys.
This keyboard ticks all those boxes and that alone puts it in a class of few. That it achieves this whilst also being a *compact* keyboard makes it very unusual indeed.
It also has multimedia keys accessed via the Fn button, including a Fn+Sleep button which is really convenient. The keys themselves are springy, have decent travel and are well spaced apart.
Oh, and it looks quite pretty too.
All in all it's perfect.
A quick note about the NumLock. In Windows you can set this to be off by default by making a very simple change to the registry:
and set InitialKeyboardIndicators to zero.

+1 and good review but I would like to add my two pennies worth for any gamers who may be considering this deck:
HE QUIK BROWN FO JUPS OER HE LA DOG
[the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog: NKRO test]
I've owned this keyboard for about 5 months now, has passed the durability test, is very comfortable for typing and ok for gaming but at this price lacks the NKRO feature, rendering some multiple key presses useless, which is important for many games.
otherwise I'm happy with it.

I did what you said to try and rectify the NumLock issue but InitialKeyboardIndicators was already set to zero so it still comes on by default on every boot.
