Ahhh, good old Model M. Mine actually died after 15 years of service... Not the board itself, mind you, but the cabling at the connector.  Cry

I'm too abusive with keyboards, but I enjoy them while they last. I guess I could say the same about everything else; cars, women, and keyboards, not necessarily in that order.

Unfortunately it's landfill now. Undecided

I actually use a Microsoft Wireless 3000 v2 now, which is the complete anti-thesis to the Model M...

I use a G19 and love it. Only for the feel of the keys and the lcd backlighs though.
It's a complete waste of money imo because it comes in a fancy box that must cost $30 to make, a silly LCD screen that is totally useless for anything practical, the keys light up which is fantastic but you can also change their colour to 1 of 256 different variations, it has usb ports in the back (kind of useful for my yubikey) AND you have to plug it into the wall on a power supply...
Apart from that, its a wonderful keyboard, though my wasd keys are already feeling worn after only 13 months.

Prior to that I had a razer tarantula keyboard, now that was the biggest waste of money I ever spent on a keyboard... never again...

Has anyone here used one of the "new" customizer keyboards from unicomp?

Cherry G81-3000.
No-frills 105-key wired keyboard that's stiff enough for me and doesn't wake the dead.
Cherry MY microswitches = linear actuation, 60g actuation force, > 100g to bottom out.
Sure as hell doesn't beat a model M, but so far it's the best non-clicky keyboard I found.

I don't know how you guys can use keyboards with 'stiff' keys.
I love using laptop keyboards and my G19, fingers just roll over the keys and no effort to push down.
I find with the 'stiffer' keyboards I have to adjust my sitting posture so I am almost sitting above the keyboard otherwise my fingers get very sore.

I still keep a selectric around for typing forms the "softest" keyboard i deal with is my thinkpads

I stopped using mice because I was getting bad RSI.

I love it. It's hard to find a keyboard with touchpad or something similar.

I have a Microsoft Comfort Curve and it's a good keyboard that is waterproof, ideally for coffee/tea drops in the desk day by day and it's not expensive.

Cherry G80-3000



Most affordable while still providing the best quality (gold clickity switches)
There is a double+ priced version of it by razor as a gaming keyboard but this has some crazy layout stuff.

Now most keyboards have the home, end, delete, page up, and page down keys mashed together and sideways while the insert key is shoved up where it doesn't go.

I was wondering what you were talking about and then I saw the Logitech up there. Why would anyone do that?  Huh

Lenovo made that change to their thinkpads following the t400s the ratoinal is here
http://www.lenovoblogs.com/designmatters/2009/06/thinkpad-t400s-key-to-a-better-experience/

 i can say that on a laptop i certainly don't mind it but they maintain the block as it was with the double height delete by moving insert over above f12 the double height escape key didn't force anything though and that i do like
