Yeah, I sure didn't miss the noise when I eventually got a Compaq keyboard in the late 90's. Although, strangely enough, my favorite keyboard is a cheap-o model from iTronic, the Scorpius M1
, which was $12 in 2005. It lasted about 6-7 years, but I damaged the plastic-circuit board cleaning it one too many times. Unfortunately, the only place you can still get them is in the England and Ireland, and no international shipping. Should of picked one up when they were still available in various European countries that *DID* do international shipping.
Now I'm making do with a Corsair K40, which I like quite a bit more than my old Logitech G15, although the back-lighting on the G15 is much brighter.
