If target size is 150 x 50mm the official keyboard is much too big at ~ 280 x 120 mmErnst wrote: ↑Fri Oct 11, 2019 7:01 amhttps://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/offici ... ard-mouse/
If you like the retro feel of ZX Spectrum dead-men's fingers
Very true. I am a huge fan of the Logitech K840 series and it definitely ticks the "nice" box. Is also wired. Sadly I doubt it would tick the "compact" box, nor the quiet box that some folks seem to require. I do find it somewhat ironic that I have a $85 mouse and a $80 keyboard connected to a $65 SBC computer.
They hardy seem comparable keyboards. Rubber and conductive pads are about the cheapest way to make a keyboard. The Huntsman uses unusual mechanical keys which are surely a lot more expensive that a sheet of silicone.DougieLawson wrote: ↑Fri Oct 11, 2019 4:19 pmIf you like the retro feel of ZX Spectrum dead-men's fingers

it rolls up small enought to fit in a poacher's pocket in a coat.
I struggle to see why that roll-up keyboard is tenner while this silly expensive keyboard is a 150 sovereigns (unless it makes tea and answers the front door bell).
The only keyboard worth any sort of silly money is the IBM M-series. They are still being made by Unicomp Inc.
Seconded. Unicomp keyboards are what my wife and I use at home.DougieLawson wrote: ↑Sat Oct 12, 2019 1:04 pmThe only keyboard worth any sort of silly money is the IBM M-series. They are still being made by Unicomp Inc.
Their keyboards come in at under USD$100.
That's a step on from the IBM Selectric golfball typewriter (which is quite simply the best keyboard in history).
