Too bad it would be an absolute abomination to type on.

Using a no-nonsense Microsoft 600(wired) Keyboard
Effortless typing,quiet,Had its fair share of "accidents"(Milk,soda etc)
And still typing smooth and quiet!I love this thing to death!
And only for about 15 euro

Got my keyboard yesterday.  Built like a tank.  Still getting used to it, but am liking it a lot thus far.
 

 



That trollface escape key is pretty awesome.
 
Hmmm, I might have to get custom keycaps for my Model M...  Might be time to replace all the letter keys with blank ones, too, for extra 1337-ness.

I think you're confusing the Optimus Maximus with the Optimus Tactus.

Optimus Tactus does not have physical keys, which means there are no restrictions on their shape and size.

Looks like its pretty much just a touchscreen to me.

I have a question: can you suggest a good keyboard (possibly with a clamshell option) to be attached to 3.8-4 inches Android touch devices? I have read of some stuff a few months ago, but I'd like to understand which are the best available.

Thank you,
Tony

You'll probably ruin your hands if you try typing on it to much.

I was thinking similarly because i wouldn't be used to typing on something that comes back up after i press it and i hope the response time would be good on it.

howdy gang. I'm finally fed up with my logitech illuminated keyboard, and I'm looking for a mechanical keyboard.
 
I have looked around at the various guides, and I've figured out that I'd like the blue cherry keys, or perhaps brown keys. 
 
Now, hopefully someone here could give some advice. I'm only willing to spend $100, and I was looking at this keyboard.

Is there a flaw on this keyboard that I don't know about that some of you might? Or should I look for a different model perhaps?

Ducky makes solid keyboards, the one you linked to would be a good choice in my opinion.
In terms of  keys, my opinion is:
Blue: Really nice crunchy action, great for typing, but they really are very loud.  I'd get one only if I had a room to myself to use it in.
Brown:  Probably my favorite switch, fairly lively action and good for both typing and gaming.  They're a lot quieter than blues although still make a nice sound
Red:  My newest keyboard has red switches, they feel like browns but just without any tactile bump.  They're noticeably nicer for Starcraft and gaming but I preferred typing on browns more.  My roomate told me that the reds are quieter.
Black: Same as reds but require more force to push down.
