Can someone recommend a sturdy keyboard with big, durable letters?
I Google'd and Amazon'ed but am confused as ever.

Current keyboard has a problem connecting from cable to keyboard. I
don't know how longer my "fix" (shoving cord into keyboard) will prevail.

Thanks!

Thanks, Cindy. I'm still unsure. EZ by DC has had fewer sales so far,
therefore fewer negative reviews. The AZIO seems to have more one-
star ratings percentage wise but lots more sales.

Will think about it. Thanks for the research!

I did read the reviews but I am going by what my two customers have told me.
Neither one of them have complained about any keys sticking and both of them
enjoy the very large letters.

I have to confess, I like the backlit keyboard so much that I have actually considered
buying one of them. I also love the larger letters.

I don't do well looking for a particular key. Putting my fingers
on the keyboard to find it used to be much faster than hunt-
and-peck. But my typing and memory skills are aging along
with my knees and back. I'm sure I'll be delighted with the
back-lit and large-letter keys!

Just got it. Fantastic!

I played j-jitsu in vain, trying to get the keyboard cord to the back
of my computer table (impossible to move away from the wall)
and then to the separate USB on the table (have mouse plugged
in there also). So the cord is just hanging, plugged directly into
the USB, looking for mischief. I'll have to wait for my neighbor
(he's a pilot and away at lot) to help me install it.

With the USB plugged directly into a separate electric socket,
will the lights wear out before the keyboard? I wonder if we'll
have to install the keyboard cord into the computer tower?

Of the 5 back-lit keyboard colors, I think I like the blue one best.

Will take a while to find "home base" on the keyboard and stay
there. I went from many manual to carriage-shifting electric to
Selectric typewriters over the years; I'm sure I'll tame this one.
