That keyboard I mentioned buying in the last post either came in on Friday or that's when I saw the package. I was freaking out when I brought it upstairs to open. The package has the Unicomp logo on the side. after using it for a few days, I think I'm ready to give it a review. Here goes nothing.
I bought the keyboard with the trackball on the top-right of the board. It's comfortable to use when you hold it from the side. Can't say if it's good for gaming or not but the DPI is like 2. It skips around the screen when you move it. (see image to right) Even if the trackball is kind of outdated, the typing is amazing. You can feel and hear the spring inside the key mechanism buckle. Dad says it's about as loud as a 60s typewriter, but like I don't have one of those so I can't really say for sure. The thing's really loud, though. You could probably hear this thing from the basement. (which my brother says we have but I have NOT been able to find it)
This keyboard is about as solid as it gets. Projected lifespan of one of these things: forever. You see? The facts all line up. It's on the heavy side, though, with around five pounds of tank. After I ordered it, I was worried about the "two-key rollover" that people said it had. I immediatley assumed this meant that you could only press two keys at any given time, but that isn't the truth. Playing Minecraft, I was able to hold Control, W, A, and Space all at one time. The rollover thing is confusing and I don't want to talk about it anymore.
All in all, should you buy one? No. They're a niche and handmade. This means they are EXPENSIVE. I bought mine for just under $130 USD. They don't suck, or at least in my experience they don't. Really, it's your decision. Don't let me make your choices.
