      Cool, think that's the best price?

I had heard some bad things about the Zippy keyboards, but now that I have mine, I have no complaints. It's not as easy to type on it as a regular full-size keyboard, but it's no problem. It's a lot like a laptop keyboard. I gotta say that I was amazed at how small the thing is. Even looking at pictures and measurements, it's smaller than you think.

          The only thing I don't like about it is that the backlight comes on automatically when you turn on your PC. I haven't found any way to make it stop that. I want it to be off by default. So I can either wire in a small toggle switch myself, or just leave it unplugged until I want to use it.

            Hmm, I'm wondering if I should get one of these then w/o the backlighting.

            This one is the same as the EL-610 but w/o the lighting

              I always thought this one was really cool, since it is aluminum and has aluminum keys. It's a little more expensive at $40, but has a big cool factor.

              If I wasn't interested in the backlight, I would have gotten either the WK-610 or the aluminum one. The WK-801 is nice, in that it has additional USB ports, but it's thicker than the WK-601.

                I've been looking at that keyboard on eBay, and searched for the best price... newegg was the best I found, too... it's even cheaper than eBay.
