Fantastic keyboard, typing is a pleasure. I'm delighted with it.

Excellent customer service - i accidentally put the wrong address in my order and Helen was quick to reply and very helpful. Very fast delivery too :)

I am really happy with the unicomp keyboard. I have used the original Model M and this is just like it. I am glad that I opted for this and not a restored IBM model M.

Highly recommended.

I got a little scared when opening the box, as some keys had visibly fallen. I was however quickly reassured by the notice that was also in the box: this was perfectly normal, and I just had to put them back into place.

Now, as for the keyboard itself, I must say I am very satisfied, both with the build quality and the feel: my cherry mx blue boards now feel like cheap toys in comparison.

However, be aware that the noise this keyboard makes might be too much if you like quiet ones, as this might be the loudest thing before an actual typewriter (it's far from being as loud, but still... I'd say about twice as loud as a standard cherry mx blue board).

One fault though: the right windows and altgr keys are reversed. Not much of a problem with autohotkey, but still very disorienting.

All in all, I am still very satisfied with my purchase, and I would recommend getting this keyboard if you want to feel the keys and flood the room with a satisfying click clack noise when you type.

These are superb keyboards and a joy to type on. I have one of unicomp's larger 'classic' keyboards which is still going strong after a decade of daily use - bought this for space saving and its just as good.

Fantastic well built keyboard, I can see this lasting years. Coming from blue switches which I found were a tad too sensitive for my clumsy fingers this keyboard is spot on!
The staff at KeyboardCo were very helpful at advising me about the product before purchase, right through ensuring the keyboard was delivered on time and I was to my satisfaction thereafter.

This is the second one in the office now - a fantastic keyboard - and generates a tremendous amount of noise when we both get up to speed :)
