Exactly what I was looking for
on 3 April 2017
It works as you'd expect a keyboard to work, and build quality is decent. It's not quite as quiet as a dell 'quietkey' keyboard, but quiet enough.
This is a shallow keyed 'full size' keyboard with a full size Enter key, just without the numpad.
(Note that the box shows a picture of a non-standard enter key and so do some of the product pictures. This has a proper Enter key.)
Compact keyboards with proper Enter keys seem to be difficult to find, and I find the mini ones to be too annoying to type on.
As someone who grew up only using laptops I forget the numpad is even there most of the time, so it's really not worth the extra space for the small number of times I actually use it. And I can't stand clackity noisy fat PC keyboard keys. This feels perfectly natural to type on for the lifelong laptop user.
I tried the Logitech K400 before buying this, and the key spacing isn't right so that's too annoying to type on as well.
This keyboard otherwise does everything it needs to. Probably could have been a couple pounds cheaper considering dell keyboards are even cheaper.
The photo shows the grey/yellow Logitech k400, full size white Dell KB216 and the mini perixx for key spacing comparison.
