Either that, or my fingers are getting stronger... lol) I like a little heavier switch myself.

B-Stock 10-keyless keyboard

Edit- Forgot to mention that the B-stock keyboards are really "clicky"! they are noisy! But that might be another reason that I like them.

Just another note... I see that Das also sells ear plugs on there site...

If I recall correctly, the At101W has a matrix issue that doesn't allow a strafe-jump combination of keys.

Can someone help me figure out if the Cherry RS 14000 (G83-14000) uses mechanical switches? I doubt it'd be easy to figure out what kind, if they did, though. I think it might be membrane..

G83-XXXX are rubber dome keyboards.

Tested around a bit, and if I hold "asdfg" only two keys will register. Pretty crappy, eh?

Thinking about getting the ABS M1. Is $30+$12.50 shipping a good price for one?
EDIT: Hm, it's USB. Exactly how big a drawback will that be?

Just get a USB to PS/2 adapter. Native PS/2 isn't necessary for NKRO, but the connection to the PC being PS/2 is.

Btw, could anyone suggest some good hand rests for the tenkeyless Filcos?

I would preferably like something that's a slope and textured hard surface (kind of like how the steel series mechanical keyboard hand rest is)

Thanks

I've read that the M1 won't work through a PS/2 adapter.

How do you figure it's not necessary? If the controller in the keyboard is programmed for USB only, how the hell is it going to output more than 6+4 keys?
