    Ok temporary replacement keyboard

    My Apple keyboard had problems, so this was s quick, inexpensive alternative for an old iMac. Keys are quiet and I like having the alternate number keypad (calculator style setup) on the right side. Only problem is that the keys for volume are also keys for shifting screens and I can't figure out how to use them to change the sound/volume. Very strange.

    Great Keyboard

    I needed a keyboard to use at home when I hooked up my work laptop to a monitor. Didn't want to spend a fortune to get bells and whistles, just a keyboard that worked with my computer, was easy to use and sturdy. This keyboard meets all the requirements. Unless you think a $60 keyboard will help you type faster, this is the way to go.

    Decent Office Keyboard

    This keyboard functions well in an office setting. The keys are slightly raised and don't make a lot of noise when pressed. Obviously, if you're looking for a gaming keyboard, this ain't it. This is just a basic keyboard without a lot of bells and whistles.

    This is a great basic keyboard. The cost of $12.99 is good for what you get. There are some shortcut buttons not included on this keyboard, like a sleep button, but it's easy enough to just manually go to start & hit the sleep option. I can't say I know how long it will last, but it's been fine for us for about a month now. Time will tell if it lasts.

    Bought this keyboard after a few keys on my laptop quit working. I had decided to go with a wired keyboard over wireless since the batteries on those don't last as long as one would like them to. The keys are very responsive and you can't get much more simple in a set-up than just plugging into a USB port and going from there.

    When you're in a pinch and need a working USB keyboard, this is the one to get! It actually feels quite good despite the low price and is much better than other low-end keyboards out there from brands such as Onn and HP. Works perfectly.

    My Toshiba Satellite Laptop's keyboard suddenly stopped working. This easy to use, inexpensive, and functional peripheral did the trick. Now I don't have to spend $100+ to fix my 5 yr-old laptop.

    Bought this wired keyboard to practice my typing after repeatedly losing dongles to my bluetooth keyboards. Tactile feedback much better than comparably priced models (keys not “sticky”/“heavy”). Also, CAPS and # locks light up—again better than other keyboards I own that cost a little to much more. Great keyboard for the money!

    This is an inexpensive USB keyboard that I bought to replace one that died. It's very basic, with no wrist rest, but serves the purpose well. Key travel is just about right for me--I'm pretty heavy fingered when I type. It's slightly noisier than I like, but to get one that is really silent would cost at least $40 to $50 more.

    Some keys on my Apple MacBook Pro stopped worked (o,i, u, y). It's 7 or so years old, so I've bought a new one to the tune of over $2000. But! The old MacBook Pro had CD/DVD, and other features the new one doesn't, so I still wanted to use it. So - this keyboard plugged in to the old MacBook Pro is a perfect solution!!!

    My MacBook pro's internal keyboard stopped working one day. I bought this keyboard to see if I could get it to start working again. The internal keyboard isn't working but this USB keyboard worked just fine. I just pugged it in and it was recognized right away. Now I just use this keyboard in place of the built in one.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to use this keyboard with my either my Mac desktop or my MacBook Pro so it had to be returned. It might work if using Windows.. therefore my lack of recommendation is only for people looking for a keyboard for use with Apple products.

    I give it 4 stars because there is not a little light on the "caps lock button", which makes it not as obvious that it is engaged. So you have to retype because it's all in caps and you didn't want that. Otherwise there hasn't been any problems

    My new keyboard works well and we use it every day! The old one wasn't working well; the keys stuck or did not print at all. The new "Insignia" is very smooth and sharp. Older folks may even need larger letters to see what they are typing. Happy New Year, Thanks, K

    Face it, keyboards are pretty simple and easy to use. Recently however I have purchased several other brands and they did not always work. With these Insignia's I purchased them in bulk to replace the keyboards at many of my stations. Every one worked every time and the staff loved them. Price was awesome also.

    I wanted a USB keyboard for little money so to use on a console gaming setup. I really didn’t want to spend much and this keyboard was the cheapest one. On top of that I got one that was open box for even less. I don’t use it much but it definitely does whatever I need it to do. Haven’t had any issues.

    I ordered a bunch of these for our office, and all of them are neat, clean, and are easy to type with. All of my staff have commented about how they are pleased with them. If you are as cost conscious as me, and want a good product, these are your boards.

    I was looking for a low cost keyboard that my wife could use with her Mac laptop. This one initially worked but after a couple of hours, it just stopped. If I unplugged it and plugged it back in, it would work for a while. This had to be repeated a couple times per day. I took it back the next day.

    wired keyboard that does the job

    Wife forgot her keyboard at work and I needed to buy an inexpensive replacement so that she could work at home. This product proved its worth. It's wired, so you can't walk around the room typing but having this meant that she didn't have to go into the office to retrieve her work keyboard. Worth the minimal expense.

    Multimedia keys do not work

    This keyboard only works strictly as a regular keyboard and that is it. None of the multimedia keys work on it. No real troubleshooting...flimsy little pamphlet, no information on real troubleshooting. Being used on a brand new Win 10 PC.
