Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perixx PERIBOARD-407W, Mini Keyboard - Wired USB Interface - Piano White - 320x141x25mm Dimension - Chiclet Key Design - UK Layout (Accessory)
This gets 11/10 from me. Not very clear from the photo but this keyboard is in UK layout. If you need a mini keyboard due to limited space or for medical reasons you will be hard put to better this at the price. I have been provided with a mini keyboard at work through the HR dept and the one supplied is half as good as this and cost over twice as much. The keys on the Perrix have a positive response and normal spacing and the whole thing is very well put togther. I'm sure there is a way to change your computer settings to stop the keyboard defaulting to Number Lock on startup but to be honest it's no big deal to press Fn and NumLk to clear it.
Consider a mini keyboard if you have any joint problems in your right shoulder or arm as getting rid of the numeric pad brings the mouse or touch pad closer in and so does not extend you arm and strain the joints as much. Using the computer a lot at home and work I have found it a GREAT help. If you really need the dedicated numerics for accounting etc just put your existing keyboard back for that time or buy an additional usb numeric pad that can be positioned where is best for you.

Thanks for your review, but the official UK layout has " over the 2 and @ over the '. When you learn to touch-type this is what you learn on in the UK. This isn't a UK layout unfortunately - touch-typing therefore impossible! I agree with all your other comments - a lovely size and saves energy!

The keyboard I have IS a UK layout as you describe and is as shown in product images seven and nine. The other product images are misleadingly of some European layout. If you have received a different model you should take it up with the supplier as it clearly states that it is a UK keyboard and that is what you should have received. Good Luck.
