First of all: if you have the Arvo keyboard
, I would like to hear your short opinion of it, no exceptions.
Why do I ask? I am currently the owner of a Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 keyboard (for the low, low price of â‚¬19.99!) that has served me well for typing documents for a living and gaming as a hobby
. The CC2k is "good enough" in all aspects, such as typing sounds, key response and size. The budget price shows a bit in the feel of the keys and the letters wearing off some of them.
Recently I have been miffed by the cheap feel and the initially-wonderful "ergonomic layout", and would like to get something more solid. I must point out I came to the CC2000 after spending â‚¬80 on the Logitech G15v2 that turned out a sloppy, gargantuan slab of plastic that I was disappointed with, so I simply sought out a reliable budget one instead. The Logitech UltraX I found pleasant to use at first, but the laptop-style keys were just too hard and oversensitive in the end.
Now I'm ready to spend again, and the Arvo looks good: very compact in size (no arrow keys/"sixpack", trimmed rim), the key response is said to be informative, the keys are half-height and the construction is said to be solid (just look at those grip pads!). I say "said to", because I have yet to meet any owners and have just read reviews; reviews sang praises for the G15v2 as well, but I found its response to be sloppy, keys unsuitable for typing and the design to be ridiculous.
So chime in if you own the keyboard or have an opinion on it
- or would like to recommend a keyboard you own instead. I type a lot
and play games actively.
