Keyboard help

New keyboard needed. £50 or under. Robustness is more important than features I'll probably never need. Likely to have heavy use so reliability matters. Keys well spaced for someone with big hands! Everyday use-nothing cutting edge. Thanks in anticipation people.

The keyboard I am using now is about 3 years old and cost £5.

It is used every day for a lot of typing. My typing speed is 70wpm and I do a lot of typing for students at the UEA. Roughly about 4 hours a day.

If I ever need another one I can still get one for £5 from: click here

This is my local supplier.

Still a 'thing' about keyboards..:)

I'm afraid so.

Mind you, the one I'm using now (and have been for some time) will take an awful lot of beating - it's by far the best I've ever put my hands on, and at this price it should be.

Logitech, not a favourite manufacturer of mine, keyboard looks to be the best at the moment. However the price tag seems a little worrying...

The price is a shocker, but when you open the box and fire it up you realise that you have a seriously good keyboard. As you say, I have a thing about keyboards, mainly because I spend so much time using them. I've tried literally dozens of them in my time, but this one wipes everything else off the map.

It looks absolutely beautiful, and it is a dream to use. I've had mine for about six months now, and I wouldn't be parted from it - it's the Rolls Royce of keyboards as far as I'm concerned.

Hmm. Maybe a good prize to win in the next competition?
