Question about keyboards

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello guys I have a Gateway keyboard that I got from a pre-built computer a while ago... Eww I know..

I noticed people talking about this couple times so I decided to do the test. It takes 13 nickles to push down one my keys. Is that too much?

I just tested my old Dell (a White "Quiet Key"), and it takes exactly 13 as well.

I also tested my Microsoft Digital Media Pro and it also takes 13.

It would appear this is about the norm for the membrane keyboards? It's odd how the latter feels weaker/softer/easier to press, yes took the same amount as well.

ah word.

I never liked this keyboard, but since I got used to it its hard to switch over to a new one. Typing on this keyboard also very weird ... I wish I never threw away my keyboard I got back in 3rd grade.... That think was legit..

It's all a matter of preference. If you find the resistance of the keyboard comfortable, then it's not too much.

The big thing I've noticed since I got a mechanical keyboard is that now, my skin crawls when using some membrane keyboards. They just feel too... squishy, I guess.

Ive only used mechanical and laptop keyboards, but I cant type very well on mine.. feels too stiff when I try to type fast. I will have to look for a new keyboard soon.
