Default Key Sticking

Hi All

Does anyone know why keys stick from time to time on a keyboard? Yes the board was only 20.00 but still Id like to hear opinions on the issue?

Regards

Berne

When I eat around my keyboard, keys seem to stick from time to time.

yes, this takes about 5 minutes max, then the next 2 hours is spent trying to get the keys back on right...
