Good quality Silent, or near silent keyboards?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
what are some keyboards that are silent, or atleat really close to silent that are pretty nice as well. Also, can be mechanical or non, although I prefer mechanical. (not sure if the lighter switches are quieter, as I've only used blue)

Sound is the most important factor though, my gf is ready to murder me frown.gif

Any non-blue mechanical keyboard switch with o-ring dampeners is what you'll want:

If you want a non-mechanical, without o-ring hassle, this is a really good and silent keyboard:
