Default Quiet typing I am

Just noted this keyboard, and as I am aware there are a few connoisseurs on this forum I thought it might be of interest.

http://matias.ca/quietpro/

This model is only available in US layout.

Looks lovely...I paid $7.95 for my newest keyboard so...the quietpro is a bit out of my price range...'-}}

That's even less than my new one! £6.00 is just under $10.00. But it is much better than my old keyboard, so I am happy. Obviously I am not one of those connoisseurs...

LOL!!! I guess I'm not either...'-}}

One reason I look for inexpensive keyboards (other than price) is that the more expensive ones have all sorts of extra doo-dads that I don't like/want or they are ergonomic which I find unusable. The least expensive keyboards are just...keyboards...and that's what I want...'-}}

Why would you have a QR code on a web page? I don't have a smartphone so cannot tell where it goes, but it smacks of a pair of mirrors endlessly reflecting each other!

$129 to Das Keyboard to get a clicky keyboard and now another $20 to get rid of the clicks? How would anybody know I'm alive down here w/o the clicks? ;-)

Before you dump Das Keyboard you could simply record about 10-15 minutes of typing, make a loop and set to repeat. Then you could enjoy the quiet of the new keyboard.
