Don’t buy this keyboard

A bit of a warning for you today: do not buy the Microsoft Comfort Keyboard 2000. It’s not being mainstream sold any more as the 3000 is out, but just don’t buy it.

As you may have guessed, I’ve got this keyboard, and the Caps Lock key is stuck (not physically, but it won’t turn off and yes, I have unplugged and plugged it in). I think it is a problem with the circuit board – the key no longer works, and it stopped working when caps lock was turned on. Other people have also had this problem.

This problem means I have had to write this post with Shift pressed in… all the time. This is truthfully the first Microsoft product I don’t like… I thought I could kinda trust the company.
