The Bottom Line The Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate Silent is aesthetically minimal and truly designed for typing purists and keyboard snobs who have no need for key labels. If the lack of printed letters isn't enough, the $135 price tag will deter casual users who can find a cheaper input device with extra features elsewhere. The Das Keyboard Model S Professional Silent is aesthetically minimal and designed for keyboard purists who miss the noisy days of the first IBM Model M. Its $135 price tag will deter casual users who can find a cheaper input device with extra features elsewhere, but power typists will find comfort, utility, and nostalgia in the Model S Professional's sleek design and springboard performance. Mechanical keyboards are gaining popularity in circles that miss the tactility of the original IBM Model M, and Rosewill introduces an inexpensive version in the RK-9000. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of competitors like Das Keyboard, but the Cherry Blue switches, molded keycaps, and simple-yet-durable design make the Rosewill RK-9000 an excellent, affordable product to start your click-clack keyboard addiction. The Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 is a worthwhile refresh with updates that include a Unifying receiver for consolidated USB port access, rechargeable AA NiMH batteries, and Logitech's comfortable PerfectStroke key design. If you do your typing in the dark, the adjustable backlit Wireless K800 won't disappoint. Fans of Apple's legendary Extended II keyboard will love the Matias Tactile Pro 3.0's sculpted keys and satisfying click. Its sturdy build and laser-etched keys also ensure a long lifespan. If you get past the $150 price, the Matias Tactile Pro 3.0 makes a solid replacement for the stock Apple keyboard.
