My new keyboard: Unicomp SpaceSaver 104
30/5/2011 Filed in: News
Time for a new keyboard. I wanted a new keyboard, my old Logitech G15 was just disgusting to look at and a bit worn on some keys. I wanted a new keyboard, but with the old IBM Model M feel; in other words... buckling springs!
These keyboard are not made by IBM/Lexmark anymore, but I found a company called Unicomp, they are located in the states. Turns out Unicomp bought the rights/patents and tools for building the Model M keyboard; a.k.a buckling spring technology.
This keyboard is absolutely amazing, and I do not regret my purchase in any way. It's not exactly the cheapest keyboard -- but I find the price reasonable. All in all, if you are a programmer, or just a person who use a keyboard a lot, then you aught to get yourself a decent keyboard. The buckling spring technology is amazing. Also, the build quality is actually pretty good, it does not look particularly well built, but it is build to last! A tank in disguise. It's a LOUD keyboard, makes the feedback even better, but not in a uncomfortable way in my opinion -- guess I'll hear from my neighbors sooner or later :D
If you want to make a purchase yourself then you can head over to Unicomp's webstore.
