PC Keyboards ⌨

These reviews are design analysis with respect to pure function and efficiency (less focus on fashion), and a meta summary of reading hundreds of user's comments from amazon and other keyboard forums.

Basically, i do not recommend non-ergonomic keyboards. Those who prefer non-ergo keyboard do not Touch-Type, which is alright. [see Touch-Typing, a Relic of Keyboard Design?]

However, non-ergo PC keyboards are pretty much all the same. As long as you have mechanical keys, which type of switch mechanism does not matter that much. The keycap quality and other issues, are not critical.

Of these flat keyboards (which i don't actually use since 2006) [see How to Avoid Emacs Pinky], the qualities that gets high rating for me are:

Other issues, such as whether it has numerical keypad, how compact it is, how light weight or heavy it is, wired or wireless, what color LED light show it does, is up to you.
