How much are you looking to spend?

The ABS M1 fits that criteria for around $50, but a percentage of them have some serious QC problems.

If you're willing to go up to the $100 range there are Das, Deck, and Filco keyboards. The Filco Majestouch 104-key non-NKRO with Cherry MX Brown switches would work for you for $110 once they come back in stock; the NKRO version (any combination of key presses will work) is $135. Das keyboards are good too, but they click. Deck keyboards are backlit. Most versions come with Cherry MX Black switches, which don't click but are very stiff, take a lot of effort to push. There is one version with Cherry MX Browns (light, no click) but it's $170. There's also the Steelseries 7G which has the Cherry Blacks.

This one I have currently has lasted 6 months so far with absolutely no problems. I love the sound the keys make, I love the weight of the board, and I love response.
How is your rollover with the new one? for an example can you play a first person shooter and hold:

Hold W to move forward
Hold A to move diagonal
Hold Ctrl to crouch
and finally will R actually work and reload?

I want to pick one up and really thats all the rollover i would need. My $15 logitech board does this just fine.

Most boards, mechanical or not, can do WASD gaming. The Model M's matrix (which can handle it) is considered the reference matrix for non-NKRO boards. Not everyone actually uses it, but most do (at least on standard 101/104 key keyboards).

Cherry Browns or Black Alps are your two best bets, Cherry Browns being nicer to type on IMO. So you want a Filco, iRocks KR-6230, ABS M1, or any number of older boards if you want to try them out for extra cheap first.

Oh wow, just ran across this. That would be pure awesomeness. I don't get why they are so rare, it's an awesome idea.

Guess I'll have a few firsts in this thread.

I've got a Deck Legend Frost for my main setup.

On a slightly more useless note I have an original Macintosh Keyboard (M0110) which I believe actually uses some sort of capacitive switch. I can't use it unfortunately, since it uses some type of RJ-12(?) connector for output. I've also got the matching keypad (M0120).

I've also got an Apple Standard Keyboard (M0116) that uses ADB and has a slightly wonky layout, as well as an Apple Extended Keyboard (M0115), which I love especially due to the locking Caps-lock key.

I'd really like to get my hands on a Realforce 103UB, and I'd like to give a Cherry MX Blue-based board a spin as well.
