My youngest daughter has a netbook which she has had for just over a year, I don't know what she has been doing with it but just before Christmas she told us that the keyboard on it wasn't working properly and she had downloaded some kind of virtual keyboard and was using the mouse to chat to her friends. As you can imagine, this is not the best of scenarios and I was pretty upset that may be the netbook wouldn't be any good to use at all before long. What with it being just weeks until Christmas too money was tight and there was no way I could afford to buy a new net book.
I had never heard of this before, technology was running away from me, but I decided to have a look on Amazon as I still had some gift balance in my account . I was thinking these new fangled keyboards would probably cost the earth to buy but I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw one of these Saitek Compact USB Keyboards for just £2.25! I thought may be they had made a mistake but no, it seemed this was the going price. Then I was wondering whether there might be a problem with them or something seeing they were selling at such a low price so had a look on other sites and it seemed legit and I couldn't find any bad reviews about it so decided to give it a try.
We didn't have to wait long really, it came just after the Christmas holidays were over. The keyboard is very striking to look at. It is a very bright luminous pink colour with all the keys being black. She certainly won't be able to lose it in her room even the mess she sometimes gets it into.
She plugged the keyboard into her netbook and it worked right away, windows added the hardware the same as it would a camera or something else that's plug and play. We didn't have to install any software with it which is good because I was a bit worried about this as the netbook doesn't have a cd drive in it.
I am giving it 4 stars seeing that it only costs a couple of pounds to buy and does the job its intended for.
If you have teenagers who have this problem with their computers or more especially their net books and you need a replacement keyboard I would highly recommend one of these. They do them in black as well as pink so would suit a boy or girl.
