Reviewing the wired Dell keyboard because why not

I primarily work off a laptop every day but sometimes I’ll hook it up to a couple of monitors, mouse and keyboard to be more efficient.

The keyboard I have is a Dell Wired Keyboard which should not be confused with the multimedia version that includes volume buttons. Why am I reviewing this? Because it’s my blog and I don’t adhere to one topic. Plus this keyboard has 4.5 stars on!

A closer look at the keyboard and you’ll notice it has a full layout with chiclet style keys to allow for efficient, comfortable typing. They advertise it as excellent for everyday usage even though it’s not an ergonomic design.

The dimensions of the keyboard are 0.96″ x 17.4″ x 5″ and comes weighing in at 1.1 lbs. It’s light enough that my daughter will often grab it off the desk and start pounding away at the keys.

Other features include:

  • Keys layout: QWERTY, Hot keys function and a very intuitive Windows button that brings up the start menu.
  • Interface: USB
  • Wired compact keyboard offers a convenient keyboard solution for everyday home or office computing uses
  • Features a durable build and quiet keys to provide comfort for the everyday demands of desktop usage
  • Weight: 1.1 lbs.
  • Comes with 1-year limited warranty (that I’ll probably never use)
  • Full keyboard functionality

The keys are definitely not as quiet as they make it out to be. There’s certainly a noticeable click sound. The built-in keyboard on my Mac and my PC laptops are quieter.

Overall, it does its job and was really cheap. It’s bare bones as they come. There are features I wish I had like Bluetooth connectivity, some volume buttons and an ergonomic design but I didn’t want to spend more money on a keyboard. I’m cheap when it comes to keyboard.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog. If all goes well, maybe I’ll quit blogging about food and have a completely dedicated keyboard review blog. If so, then I’ll really need to upgrade the keyboard.

    Thanks for this review!

    Because of your comments, I tossed out my Logitech G910 and dusted off my old Dell keyboard, much like this one!
