2.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect a laptop-quality keyboard - this is poor, 10 April 2013
This review is from: Emprex 6310U Chiclet Ultra Slim USB Keyboard with 4 Hotkeys for Media Control/Sleep Function - Windows 7/Vista Compatible (Electronics)
I ordered this keyboard for the office, to help alleviate a strain / joint problem, having noted how much better it's been since using my Samsung Chromebook a lot out of work. Low-travel keys clearly help, and are quick also.

This keyboard falls squarely in-between a normal keyboard, and a laptop one. At first I thought this was an improvement on my standard, medium-travel length keyboard, though nowhere near the level of a modern laptop like my aforementioned Chromebook. The latter has extremely short-travel keys which spring up instantly. This keyboard has a more 'clackety' feel, the keys are a bit noisy and not super-stable, and the travel distance is, again, somewhere in the middle. And, I soon found a serious fault with the space bar, which would not depress unless you strike the upper half of it. I remedied this somewhat, by removing it and scraping away the uneven finish beneath, but even then, the overall responsiveness of the entire keyboard proved
troublesome. Eventually, I discarded it and went back to my old one,

Overall I realise now I need to pay considerably more for something approximating my laptop's feel.

A disappointment - though a trained touch-typist might find it OK perhaps.
