Keyboards -- the kind you type on
« on: April 24, 2009, 05:43:19 PM »
i am gonna get a keyboard and looking on the internet for the past hour has my head spinning. i know what i want, just can't seem to find the right search fields to produce the results im after.

what i want - a qwerty keyboard with a numeric pad.  wired by USB with 2 additional USB unpowered ports on the keyboard itself. dont need, dont want any bells and whistles. don't want a slim keyboard.

my dream keyboard is the DAS keyboard (blank)

*oh yeah* Budget - $50, preferably 30. don't not sure what falls in that ball park.

any suggestions?

thanks

or just head to your local Fry's/CompUSA/etc and see what's on the shelf

With keyboards and mice, I like to feel the actual product to see how it fits, then make a note of model numbers and do an internet search for those specific models for a better price. That said, if I find something I really like I usually just buy it on the spot unless I think the price is totally out of line. Nothing quite like instant gratification.

true.  i am headed off to the fry's and the mac store.  the wired mac full size keyboard looks promising, we'll see.

my roommate has one of these - the blank one. i thought about it, but could not justify it. he's a programmer, uses it 8-10 hrs a day and loves it.

I like the Microsoft 4000 for use with a desktop.  On remote, I use a flexible, rollup keyboard into an FR2, makes it easy to name files from different takes..
