Das Keyboard Ultimate, blue Cherrys.

Clocked about 7 million key presses over the year I've had it.

I use a Filco with Cherry switches. It is glorious.

BTW, I type faster than you.

Whoa! Nice to see so many people using mechanical keyboards. But no IBM Model M users out there?

I'm really loving my Model M. The clicky noises and the tactile and aural feedback are just so pleasing.

Logitech Illuminated

Sexy.

[I have some IBM mechanical keyboard I got from a friend which feels awesome but it doesn't look as nice...]

Remember to clean the gloss every 25 minutes.

Just joined. Just got into the audiophile bizz after acquiring an AKG/Grado. That's my mini-introduction.

I have 3 keyboards, actually. I have a 6 year-old Saitek Eclipse (I, not II), Logitech DiNovo (not the Edge), and an Apple wireless mini keyboard. The Saitek has been the most reliable keyboard I've used. I've never had an issue with it. But after 6 years, the tactile response and dirt and grime (as well as the difficulty in cleaning it) between the keys are starting to really get to me. I'll most likely be upgrading to a G15 or Razer Lycosa.

The DiNovo and Apple keyboards are both wireless. I use the DiNovo when I'm not gaming and there's a ton of clutter on my desk, main keyboard for gaming and everything else, and the Apple for when I'm in bed or feel like stirring things up over IM, since it's the easiest to type with.

I use an $8 crappy keyboard that doesn't always work all the time. I'm too cheap to get a nice keyboard but if I do it will be a Unicomp, which is the IBM Model M, just rebadged (Unicomp bought the rights off of IBM).

I'm using a Cherry G81-1800. I love the response!
Just give it a small tap and it response with a nice tactile feel (though some would probably call it mushy or heavy) and it must weight five or so pounds and could probably be used to defend myself. I like not having to feel like I'm pounding the keys like membrane keyboards.

I think it's great to see all the mechanical keyboard users in general!

I talk on skype a lot with friends, it gets so much spit on the gloss that I've had to wipe it down every day.

I use a Unicomp Customizer 104at home where I don't worry about noise. This is basically a USB Model M with Windows keys.


At work I use an MS Comfort Curve 2000 which is really an outstanding keyboard for $20.

Trusty Logitech G15 Been great for the 2 or so years I've had it for. G19 looks nice though. When they came out they were $299, now $179 but I don't think I need it right now. All it is, is a G110 with a LCD screen for $90 more.

I use a Matias TactilePro V3 with Alps mechanical (buckling spring) keyswitches, and my V1 has been transferred over to work. I have a spare V3 at home just in case. Great keyboards, even if the pair of them cost as much as a decent netbook.

g15 here. had it for about 2 years i think. works great but i dont game anymore so... all the extra features are kind of a waste.

Same as mine! But mine is with printed characters. Because a lot of people won't be able to use my pc otherwise =/

Of my three "summer upgrades", which were the Eclipse II, Razer DeathAdder, and Grado SR60i, the Eclipse II is by far my least favorite. I find it mediocre at best, probably not worth its $40 price tag at the time. I love the DeathAdder, very comfortable and accurate and I don't think I can live without a pair of thumb buttons anymore. The SR60i, of course, needs no explanation since I wouldn't be posting here without it.
My Saitek Eclipse II has never let me down... Sounds like you got a dodgy one. I have had mine for 2yrs without any faults at all.
