Following up on the state of technology, use, and economics.
My current keyboard, Saitek Eclipse II (2006) has seen hard use in 11 years, but has outlasted three different desktops during that same time period. I'm about to get a new kb as this one is dropping "h" and doubling "e", and failing to space from time to time. Makes coding more difficult as the typos double the time spent proofing.
On a secondary machine I have a $5 generic that types like krap (touch typist from the pre-computer days on manual type writers, then electric, to Selectric/DEC), but still does the job. But is not something I want to use for hours at a time.
Recommendations for what I can find in the $50-70US range that is miles above generic but not in the realm of gamer boards for which I have no use. The dollars are bang for buck as I rarely have keyboards last more than eight years.
Would love mechanical keys, but that's not usually available in that dollar range.
Meanwhile, what are you using, how has it lasted, and while comfort/ease is subjective, how responsive?
