In light of COVID, I’ve been experimenting with my home office setup a bit and lately my target has been keyboards. When you work 40+ hours on a keyboard a week you run into issues that perhaps a more casual user wouldn’t. I’m 100% pro-mechanical myself. My favorites so far are as follows (and in order):
- Das Keyboard Prime 14 with Cherry MX Brown switches USB
- Corsair K63 with Cherry MX Red USB
- Unicomp Ultra Classic White Buckling Spring (IBM Model M clone) PS/2
- Velocifire VM01 with Outemu Brown (cherry clones) USB
What have you used, and what do you prefer? What’s your use case? I do some development and a lot of DevOps work so I spend a lot of time writing emails and config files. Do you prefer smaller form factors or a full with tenkey layout? ANSI or ISO? QWERTY or DVORAK? PS/2 or USB? Let’s geek out.
