Monterey K108, also branded as the MteK K108),[2] is a keyboard from Monterey. Some examples are XT/AT switchable;[3] it appears that this switch was dropped with time, as it is absent from the Windows key version.[2]

The keyboard features a big-ass Enter key and single-unit backspace.

The FKD45AK108 FCC ID (with "45" instead of "46") may be a typing mistake on the part of Monterey, as they have nothing registered with the FCC with a product code beginning "45", while most of their registrations have product codes beginning with "46".

FCC ID FKD46AK108W was registered in 1996; however, the Windows version used the same FCC ID.[2]
