2.0 out of 5 stars Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy **Update below**, 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dell Inspiron 1545 Black UK Replacement Laptop Keyboard (KEY49)
I was delighted that I was able to get this so cheaply online, I only needed to replace two buttons and it was more cost effective to replace the entire keyboard.

After reading a very helpful review I saw on here that I could change this myself with an online tutorial. It was a cinch, literally took me less than 5 minutes.

My laptop looks like new!

The reason I have given is 4 out of 5 stars is that the letters themselves are not as clear and bright as on my original. They are a more subtle shade of grey so stand out less. Plus it seems noisier than my original keyboard, it's as if there is no softening behind it. That's a tad disappointing. I even repeated the installation process to see if it would improve... Sadly not.

Overall though a fantastic product at a fantastic price.

***UPDATE - 2 WEEKS LATER***
There were times when certain buttons stopped working so I repeated the installation process which would resolve this. Unfortunately this morning the four buttons on the left hand side ceased working altogether. I attempted approx. 10 times to fix this, eventually having to replace the keyboard with my old one (minus few buttons - good job I kept it for spares!)

If I hadn't kept it I wouldn't have been able to log on to my system as I couldn't type out my password! Not good. Cannot replace only refund...
