Keyboard review – how uninteresting does that sound? Quite a bit. On a second thought, when was the last time you saw a review on a keyboard? In fact, I dare to say that the keyboard must be one of the most underestimated computer parts out there. Read on as we take a closer look at the Zippy Electron Luminescence Keyboard.
I have never been what one might call "gadget happy". I do like being able to use technology to make my life easier. However, it is very rare that any one piece of technology grabs my interest to the point where my inner voice screams at me "Now there's something I have just got to have!"
When Bytecc first sent the Zippy Electron Luminescence Keyboard (EL-610) to me, I wondered whether I had found that next rare item. The keyboard, with its lightweight design and sharp look, definitely had the requisite cool factor. It turned the heads of just about everyone who saw me using it. The question to be answered was whether its value was purely as eye candy.
