HP Wireless Elite Keyboard

Pros
  • Wireless at a budget price
  • Sleek design
  • Nice key feel
Cons
  • Long-term durability is an issue
  • No caps lock indicator
  • Bright receiver light
  • Some users report wireless connectivity issues

Budget-level keyboards like the HP Wireless Elite aren't reviewed very often -- and when they are, reviewers usually prefer more expensive models. Nevertheless, the HP Wireless Elite scores well among user reviews on Amazon.com, due to its sleek design and wireless capability. Users praise the HP Wireless Elite's small desk footprint and key feel, despite its recessed look. That said, some reviewers take issue with the Wireless Elite's long-term durability, and the wireless receiver's bright LED light is a constant annoyance for many. A wired, more conventional alternative is the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 (*Est. $35) , which features Microsoft's trademark split-ergonomic design. It also offers a built-in wrist rest and quiet keys.

While there are no professional reviews of the HP Wireless Elite on major sites (and few of budget keyboards in general), hundreds of user reviews are available at Newegg.com and Amazon.com.
