Inspired by @yukikaze’s intro post, what’s your current keyboard? Whether cheap, pricey, mechanical, rubber dome, just your laptop, or Dell, post it.
I’ll start, this is one of several keyboards I’ve spent too much money on. I like it a lot thought honestly prefer the Matias that I have at work and have been unable to use for months. Much like my love of tabs for indentation I also have niche taste in key switches and ALPs-style switches will always be the best in my opinion.
Hmm, not sure I’d take keyboard advice from a tab user. I type my spaces on three different keyboards. At home I (used to) type on a Roccat Ryos with Cherry MX Black switches. As a long-time Cherry fan, I went with the rather utilitarian Cherry MX Board 3.0 for work. This time with the more tactile Brown switches.
Having to share an office with a rather loud typist at home now, we invested in what my research brought up as one of the quietest options: Two Logitech K800. I have to say I am almost a convert. The feel and feedback are fantastic on it. Best keyboard I had for typing, and decent for gaming. The BIG downside is that it’s Bluetooth only. Even when you plug it in, it only draws power from the cable, no data. And I have a lot of trouble with Bluetooth (both for my Headset and Keyboard) so if I were to buy another keyboard, I’d get a Logitech with the same keys, but a good old-fashioned cable.
Yeah I don’t get the tabs thing either—that’s just crazy talk. I’m a big fan of ALPS switches too; the Apple IIc keyboard is still by far my favorite keyboard of all time. But I ultimately settled for Das Cherry Browns…I didn’t find Matias keyboards as enjoyable to type on as I thought I would. I would have definitely gone with Blues if I didn’t think everyone around me both in the office and at home would murder me.
