$99 keyboard! Holy crap!

Is this really $89 better than a $10 keyboard?

Does it do laundry and dust?

I just assumed since I’d bought 2 things yesterday that woot! wanted to see how gullible I really was.

Hmm, from reading the description, I’d say that this compares to the keyboards offered by unicomp. The price is expected, if this is true. They’re built like keyboards used to be, back when computers cost $3000. It says it’s mechanical… but is it buckling spring?

I’d love to have one of these, but I have not yet been able to justify the cost. I’ll keep typing on my old IBM Model M.

I plan on buying this $99 USB keyboard just after my new Bentley and Learjet arrive in the mail.

A $10 keyboard is utter crap and in no way compares with a mechanical keyboard


Here is some light reading

This keyboard is worth $150. It is the most durable keyboard I have ever owned. Mechanical keyboards are far more superior than a $10 keyboard.

Since I am a full time web developer and a PC gamer on the side, my Das keyboard gets constant use. I could never turn back.

Mechanical keyboards are worth the money

Reds aren’t exactly the same as an oldschool buckling spring. I’ve only typed on reds, blues, and blacks. Supposedly the greens are very similar to your M, so you might want to look elsewhere.

As far as the price tag, $100 is about what you can expect to pay for a Das, so you aren’t missing a one in a lifetime deal by skipping this.

Your $10 and even $50 “gaming” keyboards are all silicone membrane based, which wear out and tear over time, making individual keys feel collapsed or otherwise broken. The cherry switches are nigh indestructible, and just feel great.

If you aren’t sure about these, the Das model S is, in my opinion, the easiest way to transition from a membrane board found on any laptop or any keyboard under $80. I wholly recommend trying out the various keys before purchasing though, some like the ‘tactile’ or ‘bump’ switches whereas others like the linear switches.

Only if you ask it nicely.

The keyboard is the part I touch the most so its probably the most important part of my computer.

I have Model M (dated January 19, 1989) that works great, and will probably will continue to work great for quite awhile. Unlike the rest of my computer, a good keyboard will last decades.

I am intrigued by how this keyboard is “Quiet.” My Model M makes a beautiful racket, thats OK because I am in an office by myself. Is this keyboard any quieter.
