Wave QWERTY USB Keyboard recommendations

My Keyboard at work has finally packed in.
(12 year old Sony Vaio one. Very comfortable to type on.)



All the other ones are stupid thin Dell ones with flat-ish keys with hardly any travel.

So I'm looking for a new one.


Spec:
  • OS: Windows (7)
  • USB wired.
  • Full keyboard with numeric pad, function keys and separate cursor keys etc. (ANSI style >109 keys)
  • QWERTY US
  • No stupid volume controls or an media keys and such like.
  • Preferably full-travel keys. Not chicklet style laptop keys.)

Did I say it has to be US QWERTY?


Oh. And it needs to be US QWERTY.





Ta.

Can't help you. I only know of QWERTY UIP keyboards. The S and the B are on completely different lines.

If you're right into your keyboards, you want to look into mechanical keyboards (as long as you don't mind the clicking). There's some right fan boys in that area -and they can cost a fortune. I know that 'cherry MX' stuff is massively well thought of. They have different colour coded key switches for different levels of 'feel'.

That'll teach me not to be a smartarse. (No it won't.)

I mean, really, how do you manage to mistype something which is literally just typing the keys next to each other?

This one looks good, but too expensive, I feel...

Seems good quality full-travel keyboards are now known as "Gaming" keyboards. ()

That's lot of money for a second-hand keyboard!
