far the most short cut keys of any keyboard we have seen to date. The
Viewsonic comes in a black and silver colour scheme which matches
ViewSonic's LCD flatpanels if you are into that level of coordination in
your peripherals. For some reason, even though the integrated palm rest
is really comfortable, I don't find the keys of the KP202 quite as
comfortable to use. The return is good, but the down stroke on the space
bar is paltry and that just takes away from the feel of the rest of the
keys. The chrome plated special keys are eye catching but I suspect the
silver will ware off quickly.
The integrated CD-player controls are really well done, but since the
back of the keyboard is hollowed out, the unit is not that great for
grabbing hold of, or using on the lap. Because of this, the left hand
side cursor control seems more superfluous as we were only confident
using a mouse with it. Typing comfort is pretty nice, but build quality
feels a bit light.
