I agree with you 100% pretty much. However, for 20 bones this is one hell of a deal. Replaced my ooooooold dell quietkey.
Just installed it at home and am typing this post out on it right now. Compared to a Dell quietkey from a couple of years ago that I've been using as a standby, the key layout feels slightly different; it's probably just due to the ctrl keys being a little narrower and the alt/space keys being shallower than the Dell, which had oversized alt key and spacebar.
But goddamn does this ever feel better! clickclackclickclackclickclack
