The new 'original' IBM buckling spring, Model M keyboard is regarded as a timeless and durable piece of hardware.
Many units manufactured since the mid 1980s are still in use today, with a buckling spring key design and fully swappable keycaps, these keyboards have been prized by computer enthusiasts and heavy typists because of the tactile and auditory feedback resulting from a keystroke.

Original IBM Style Keyboard, Black, Blank USB - UB494HA

  Syn  05/03/2020
Bought these because I wanted a modern take on the original model M, and I got what I wanted. The mould is not that high quality and it's rough on the edges, but the blank keycaps (that avoid the popular risk of getting misaligned prints) and the buckling spring system is really impressive for long typing sessions.
Keep in mind that initially I thought there was something wrong with the keyboard when I played with it the first day because it had pressure inconsistency on various keys, but a quick google search and after a few typing sessions I realized that buckling sprinks break in after a while! So don't worry about this for the first couple of thousand words :)
