Currently using an Emprex 5105GU

Was basically a budget keyboard to stick in with my first ever PC build, but it's done me good and right now my keyboard is very low on the future upgrade list in terms of priority. Only minor annoyance was that it came with a different layout to the image and had a short shift key, but to be honest it doesn't really make any difference. I know gamers prefer to have the longer shift key generally, but I don't find myself 'missing' it at any time.

Is it the ISO long enter? I used to use that and the ANSI version in the picture is much easier for things like UNIX where you user the pipe "|"

In regard to the enter key i think it's a standard ISO so is missing the pipe. Here's a picture of my own one! (my god I need to dust in here)

Luckily, whether it was ANSI or ISO didn't really affect me but it's probably the only thing to be wary about! Otherwise, fantastic budget keyboard!
