Aren't Cherry browns quiet?
They arent especially when coming from a rubber dome keyboard, in the cherrys there's nothing that dampen the end of key travel and even if you won't get a click you still get the clack.

you should buy oen with MX black switches, heavy switches so you dont bottom them out easily and near no noise, best part is they will last way longer becuase it is mechanical.

cherry's are the brand cherry and ALPs are ALPs..
cherry did not and does not own ALPs
cherry makes MX and ML switches..

There's a popular sc2 player that streams with one of those and you can constantly hear his keyboard through his mic. Any type of mechanical keyboard is going to be a bad choice.

This actually just reminded me to try the dental band mod on my Cherry MX switch boards to see how much quieter they are.

For those suggesting a new wife...you're not married, are you? The problem is that the computer is located in the bedroom, and she already has a hard time staying asleep.

I've heard a lot of suggestions so far but not a lot of consensus. It could be that I phrased my question too broadly. I want a keyboard that will last more than few years without being louder or more click-tastic than the day I got it. Or at least, one that won't increase all that much.

Thoughts? Worst case, I get another Eclipse II -- by the time it wears out, I should have the computer separate from the bedroom.

The Xarmor U9BL-S is very quiet and has back lighting.
post #28 of 44
honestly, my Saitek Eclipse II was one of the quieter boards I've owned.

The Enermax Aurora, and Logitech DiNovo Edge are very quiet IMO. Very spongy keys, but excellent dampening. They're scissor style, so they don't feel like typing in mud too.

Agreed. And if you type with one on your lap, you feel it too...

+1 for an apple aluminum keyboard. You can test it out at an apple store but from my experience it is much quieter than my microsoft rubber dome keyboard. The loudest button you will gear is the space bar, and it is no where near as load as clicking any other button on a rubber dome keyboard.

FYI: Is suggest getting one with the numpad and if you are always open to saving a few bucks the wired aluminum ones with the numpad go on ebay used for $35. I got mine new so I cant tell you what to expect but just throuwing it out.

Anyways, great quiet keayboard and almost dead silent if typing at a medium pace and gently, something you cant do on another keyboard.
