The NY Times wrote in july of 1985: "The KB-5151 (for the I.B.M. PC, XT, AT, PCjr and A.T.&T. 6300) has many advantages over the PC keyboard. First, the left-hand shift key and the return key are normal size and in the proper places; for some perverse reason, I.B.M. chose to use the shift spot for a backward-slash key, and even after months of use many people have not got the hang of it. Unlike the PC board, the KB-5151 has separate pads for numeric and cursor keys, eliminating the frustration of having two crucial but diverse operations on one set of keys. Function keys, which let one button do the work of many, are in a row on top of the keyboard instead of in a clump on the left. Red lights let the user know when the shift- and number-lock keys are activated. The key layout can be shifted from qwerty to Dvorak for those who fancy such idiosyncracies."
