Firstly there is nothing here to tell you that this keyboard has a BRITISH layout. For anyone living in New Zealand that means it's different to anything you've used before because we have a US layout here. The symbol keys such as @ and # are available by pressing shift+2 or 3 respectively like normal, however the symbols printed on the keyboard itself do NOT reflect this. The only gripe I have with this keyboard is the left shift key is half the size of usual US keyboards meaning every time I go to use it I hit the \ key instead which has been plunked in where the other half of shift should be. Once I find a workaround to make that key function as a shift key I'll be fine with this keyboard. It's just not as user friendly at first as you may think. Also, the description mentions "multimedia keys" but there are NO play/pause/back/next keys, only volume. The other function keys are pretty much useless unless you are working in an office with this as they are email and word processing hotkeys. Not gonna lie I'll probably never use them and I hope I can find a way to reprogram them! Also, the picture makes it look like this keyboard is wireless. It isn't. It has a long cord and doesn't feature stand risers either. It is a very low lying keyboard. Overall, if I had known this info beforehand I would not have bought it, it was the sleek design that fooled me into thinking this was a half decent piece of hardware.
