Though there are many people that are pretty serious about their keyboard, most of us view a keyboard as a utilitarian input device. For many gamers, as long as it has a working A, S, D, W, space bar, and arrow keys, it is an acceptable keyboard. How many of you are still using the keyboard that came with the HP or eMachines you used in a former life?

Personally, I very much appreciate a keyboard with a nice touch, as I spend as much time typing as I do most anything else. I really can't describe the feel I like, but I know it when I feel it. Soft, but with a distinct “snap” when a key is pressed. My current keyboard feels ok, but not great.

The keyboard tray on my desk is not that long, and I keep my mouse on it too, so a gaming keyboard is usually a pain, being significantly longer than a regular one. I have a couple of nice gaming keyboards, but to be honest, I don't use the programmable features on them enough to make it worth knocking my mouse on the floor every time I place the keyboard on the shelf. Most keyboards I've used had some kind of multimedia keys, but I usually forget to use them. I spend most of the time with the keyboard in my lap, so I really like a long cord on a keyboard, preferably six feet or more. Up to this point, I haven't used a cordless keyboard that I liked.

So, it stands that I am pretty particular about the keyboard I use. Though to be honest, I really don't care that much for the one I am using right now. It does ok, but the keys are a little mushy, and the raised notches on the F and J keys aren't pronounced enough. I actually type in high school fashion, and often in low light (a few years ago, a retired typing teacher saw me at work typing in this fashion and greatly complimented me on it). I wasn't going to attempt to RMA a keyboard just because I didn't care for the feel of it, because other than that, it works great.

So will the Logisys Ultra Slim Soft Touch Keyboard meet my requirements? Let's see.
