Most keyboards today offer an array of multi function buttons, and extras. Today, we are taking an exclusive look at the newest keyboard that hasn�t yet hit the market, the Zippy Aluminum WK720. It was nice to see the simple approach Zippy took with the wk720 keyboard; no shortcut buttons or scroll wheels just the basics needed in a keyboard, which was very nice to see since I never use the multi function buttons on my current keyboard.

I was very impressed when I opened the box; this has to be the best looking keyboard I have ever seen. The bottom half of the keyboard is made of black plastic with the top being made of aluminum with plastic silver keys.
The build of this keyboard is great, and the aluminum gives the WK-720 a very solid feel as opposed to plastic. The WK-720 uses a USB connector and the cord measures in at 1.5 meters more than enough length for the average users.
