Questions and Answers
One word of warning: This is an ISO layout, rather than an ANSI layout. ANSI is more common in the US, while ISO is common in Europe/Japan. (You can see the wikipedia page on "keyboard layout" for more information).
The thing to be aware of is the position of the enter/return key. On most US keyboards, it's horizontal, next to the quote key. On this keyboard, it's vertical, with an extra key squeezed in. You can easily get used to this layout, unless you change keyboards often. In that case I would recommend making sure all your keyboard match, particularly in the position of the enter key.
PROS: Good functional keyboard at a good price
CONS: Very stiff action on the keyboard. Clunky response. Stops working occasionally, particularly the zero key on the 10-key pad. Wouldn't buy again.
This is a very common key to use in a Linux terminal.
What you wind up pressing instead of the pipe is the enter key.
So, while you're stringing together a nice bash command you wind up executing it early before you pipe it to something.
PROS: Cheap price, and it works.
CONS: Non-standard position for the vertical pipe character "".

PROS: The keyboard is slick and black design. It's very sturdy and there's seems to be no problems with the keys. It'd a nice keyboard if you need a fast replacement and has a good deal too.
CONS: My only problem with this keyboard is that maybe the keys are a bit too sturdy, but it seems to be running down after a while. I hear this spring also from the space bar, maybe because it's new
PROS: All keys work, feels well built, attractive, cheap, works in windows 10 tech preview.
CONS: I'm sure some major gamer could tell you everything that is wrong with it.
PROS: Good price
Buttons have good resistance, feel
CONS: ENTER BUTTON IS TOO SMALL, TOO FAR AWAY
PROS: I bought this keyboard primarily because it had large enter key. It has a touch that pleases me along with a fine layout.
PROS: Very well designed. Has options for a fan. Key lockable. I don't need the fan or the keylock for my application however, my favorite feature is the in use light. When you have three of these trays and you want to know instantly which one is being accessed, the LED turns from Blue to Pink to show it is doing it's thing.
