Actually, not that bad. There's a membrane board in my house and this one is closer to a mechanical board for sure. I'm getting a board with Green Alps switches, but I didn't once consider it an investment of any sort. I'm just pointing out that durability wise cheap standard keyboards can be fine. Through normal use there's no reason this keyboard wouldn't last a further ten years.
This board requires about 60cN of force to overcome static friction, then 50 cN to bottom out the key from there. It fluctuates a little as it goes along, but it's by far the best non-mechanical keyboard I've ever used. Mechanicals require similar forces but they are much, much smoother if you press them slowly.
It says it's a Dell RT7D20, Although it's getting replaced I'm curious as to what makes it so much nicer to type on than any other non mechanical keyboard
Also; it's 4KRO and allows ctrl alt and shift to be freely pressed with those 4 keys, even at the same time.Edited by Baneat - 1/24/12 at 3:56pm
