What is the best Tenkeyless Mechanical Keyboard? - Page 2

quality/durability - IBM model M SSK
I own one, and prefer it over my Filco MJ2 or Zero.
If you game 2KRO will hold you back, but the build quality can't be beat.
Don't get me started on Topre...

An IBM SSK would be great, but they're awfully hard to come by... and when they do pop up, they are generally pretty expensive.

One just sold for $450 on Geekhack:

It sold in a charity auction, so that's the reasoning behind the high sale price... plus it came with a rare Buckling Spring ClickClack skull key cap, which also drove up the price alot...

HHKB3.

Any day now.

It was part of my 2012 keyboard predictions I am doing so well on.

Yep, 100% on my 2011 keyboard predictions and my 2012 predictions:
Quote:
- BBS hobbyist forums declining in growth and expertise due to mobile use

- Logitech enters Mechanical Switch Market

- 2012 is the year of thick dyesubbed PBT keys (although Elitekeyboards was SUPPOSED to ship the FC700R in 2012!

- no HHKB3 from Topre, just colored keys

- Geekhack taken over by morons

So, 99% in 2012!
