    I stumbled over this vital informative video while thinking about buying a new keyboard. Because this one is so worn down even a blind typist can smell the cheesus.

    The next one will have proper microswitches and mechanic properties that are actually worth the price.
    Any recommendations? (typing this from a Razer Omarosa or whatever)

    I like my Filco majestouch 2 with brown switches. Bit pricey but quality kit.

    OK. 200+Eurons and only 12 F! keys. Anger management just became expensive.

    Still use IBM Model Ms on all my machines. Haven't had one fail in 30 years.

    Logitech K120 for me. Nice feeling key action for touch typists, cheap as dirt and easy to clean: toss it and plug in another one.

    The only problem I have ever had with them is that the letter decals on the keys sometimes wear out. In this order : etaoin shrdlu.

    Not really -- I seem to lose the N first and the A and the S next. Just the decals; the keys still work fine.

    Yup, sometime in the 1980s, manufacturers moved away from double-shot keys to dye sublimation. Cheaper, but inferior.

    My Model M keys look like new, but for a shine developed from wear.

    My Filco has the letter labels on the front of the keys, which is odd at first; when you stand up and look down at it, it looks as if there are no labels.
