Limited Life Cycle - Fragile

Strengths:

* Volume Controls at Top of Keyboard * Price

Weaknesses:

* Duration of key labels remaining readable and intact (lack thereof) * Responsiveness of the keys at normal typing speed.

Additional Comments:

This one is on Microsoft; they are a large global corporation. It's not the fault of the retailer (Memory Express)The price point of this product and its basic features attracted me to give it a try. I made the purchase on August 5, 2019. I also purchase another (higher end) keyboard (entirely different brand) as a reliable backup, just in case, at the same time. By the way, the keyboard makes an audible click sound on pressing each key (alright) but the keys feel a bit spongy sometimes - not tight and responsive. At the time of this review (August 25, 2021) there are 11 keys that no longer are labelled (worn off?) I keep a clean office environment. But the duration of the key labels is particularly substandard to what I would normally expect over a span of 2 years. Secondly, I am continuously having to proof-read what I type since if I type at my normal typing speed, it will skip letters. This has progressively worsened to the point where I am about to retire the keyboard permanently and send it off to the electronics recycling bin: another addition to Our Planet's e-Waste challenge. If only product could be manufactured to meet a minimum life span. Yes indeed, we all need to move on from planned obsolescence. I do fault myself in this equation - eventually the consumer has been taught to blame themselves - "you get what you pay for". Why manufacture it in the first place? The other keyboards was not Microsoft. Go ahead and buy realizing that it is only a limited stop-gap measure that has a very abbreviated life-cycle. Perhaps Microsoft should do the honorable thing and recall the product. Thanks for reading.
