Summary: Overall Keytronic boards are excellent, but skip this particular model.
Pros: I'm a big fan of Keytronic keyboards, this is my sixth or seventh one over a few years/jobs. The shape shamelessly clones the IBM Model M which is a great layout. Despite using rubber dome switches, the key action is solid.
Cons: As other reviewers have noted, even after having this one for 7 months, some of the keys don't respond all the time. In this case the o key and the 0 on the numpad don't always respond and require a second keystroke which is frustrating.
Summary: I've been using various models of Keytronics keyboards for over 10 years, both at work and at home. I have always loved their action and good solid/higher tension springs under the keys. This model is no exception to that fine tradition. Not as hardcore as an IBM Model 101, but I prefer these better. Todays keyboards, whether ergonomic in one way or another, or simply a soft/squishy action, reduce my typing speed on a physical (and also I think subconsciously.
Pros: I love all of Keytronic's keyboards. They are solid, study boards, with great key action. Perfect for programmers or transcriptionists who need a great performing board and can't afford or don't want to spend the kind of money necessary for a decent mechanical board. I recommend these keyboards highly.
Summary: It took me a few days to get used to the "clicky" sound of the keys but after a while it does not seem to matter anymore. The quality is superb, and I know it is going to last me a while, unlike a Logitech keyboard I owned not too long ago and lasted me three months. This keyboard is full size and stays sturdy on my desk; it does not shift at all because the extension feet are covered with rubber.
Summary: This is supposedly the same as the DAS KEYBOARD, with text. Thats why I bought it, as I use DAS, and wanted a secondary unit with letters and numbers printed on it. THIS IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO DAS KEYBOARD. There is more to DAS than fancy packaging, the action is leaps and bounds improved over this. Get the DAS. Learn to type with no text. Its worth it.
Pros: Simple layout. Thats about it.
Cons: The action of the keys leaves much to be desired. The space bar for example, is hit-or-miss, especially during gaming, where you may utilize the corner of it. Spacing is pretty cramped, especially given the height of the keys.
