Do any of you use a mechanical keyboard? The kind where there are real springs behind each key - as opposed to the type they typically make these days where the keys are on some kind of cutout that just isn’t that springy?
If so - any advice on them?
I have read that a lot of programmers and gamers use mechanical keyboards because they are much more responsive and many give you that clickety-clack sound that you either love or hate.
I’ve started reading up on them and am convinced a mechanical keyboard is the answer to the rage that has builds in me every time I used a “regular” contemporary keyboard. However, even though I live in a large metropolitan area none of the computer equipment stores keep them in stock, I need to order one online - which makes comparison really hard since it is feel and sound that I am looking for!
I’m a programmer, no interest in gaming, and I know I want a full keyboard with separate keys for the arrows and number pad area. Probably not too loud as I sometimes record screencasts of what I’m typing.
Since programmers gather here, I am hoping some of you use one and can offer some suggestions/advice.
