There is a Topre board at a shop in my area selling for a bit of a discount, currently on sale. But it's a ZA0100 "Type Heaven", whatever that is, lol.tongue.gif

From EliteKeyboards:
"No flashing lights and sideshow features; the Type Heaven is purely a touch-typist's keyboard made for endless days and nights of typing and offers the same excellent build quality and silky-smooth keystroke of Topre's Realforce boards, but at considerably lower price. "

Logitech G510s. The main features that I love are the 18 macro keys (that can hold up to 54 macros or texts) and the illuminated keyboard. I don't need the illumination but an illuminated keyboard is pretty much the only way to get keys that have characters that will not wear off (I need the characters on the keys due to learning disabilities) and get the number of macro keys this keyboard has. I actually bought a spare since Logitech, in its infinite wisdom (end sarcasm), has discontinued the keyboard and I may buy yet another spare.

The next favorite keyboard was the one I got with my first XP desktop computer, a Gateway. It was so good, I used it with my second XP desktop computer, a POS Acer that came with a lackluster keyboard. I used that one a total of ten years.

Actually, no, not this time but I have done so at other times.

Razer black widow ultimate elite before they started "cheaping out". I think it was 2014 model?

Went from gold sc2 ladder to diamond within a week, no BS. Then life happened and had a beautiful son, so the blue switches had to go(by far too loud when my office is next room from nursery) biggrin.gif. Now I play with a corsair RGB with cherry reds and BOY, do I miss my blue switches.

The brown version was sold out for months so I settled on the red version.

Brian's too busy felching himself, better to buy elsewhere when it comes to anything related to Topre.

QPad MK-80 Cherry MX Brown with stock keycaps.

Had it for a couple of years now, built like a tank except for the wrist rest but it's still on there tongue.gif

It was bloody expensive when I bought it the second it was released directly from QPad but it was SOO worth it...

Filco Majestouch 2 Ninja w/ Browns. Types like living in heaven, built like it could surivive through hell.
I have own some other boards but this is the only I don't feel like selling at all. I just love that stealthy black Filco logo on the board!
