I consider the X6 the keyboard with the worst feeling ever tried, and altough I've never touched an X4 it's membrane looks exactly the same.

I.E., space bar is the stiffest, the F and J, and A, L, P, and Q are the easiest. As well, the keyboard is very precise for a rubber dome, with a satisfying click coming from bottoming out the key, and none of the squishyness that cheapo keyboards have. It's also built like a tank, I've punched mine in rage, spilled a bottle of vinegar into it, and dropped it down the stairs and it works fine.

And it's eighteen dollars.

Top that, logitech lovers.
My backspace is bigger than yours

fujitsu keyboards are the best, a nice firm 90g keyweighting for the middle section going to a a soft 50g key weighting for the pinkie keys, nice and tactile.
and unlike that keytronic toy has a proper sized backspace and enter key.

I liked the feel of the cherry cymotion alot.
it has reduced keytravel, and the keys sit very firm in their places.
Also the keycaps are probably the best keycaps of all keyboards ever.

Every nickel test I've seen shows the Keytronic considerably stiffer than a Topre.

Got any nickels?

Keys on a Keytronic are wobblier than Amy Winehouse before she joined the 27 club.

I have a Malaysian made Dell Quiet Key but it is not that great of a keyboard. Nothing jumps out at me as above average.
