New Stealth Industrial-grade Keyboard

Post by Ralf Hutter » Sat Sep 04, 2010 6:22 am

**This forum seems to have become the default location for quiet keyboard posts, so I'm posting this one here**

Stealth announces new ruggedized industrial keyboard. While not pushing it as "quiet" the ad copy does mention " keys with silent tactile feedback" so maybe it's worth a look: ... yboard.htm

I think everybody's mind is boggling trying to figure out where this would actually be practical to use.

I think it's awesome looking.....

with built-in optical trackball :shock: I wonder how does that feel within my fingers but i guess i'll never know considering the price 700 bucks !

On the same register (noiseless keyboard) some time ago i wanted to buy this one It's water/dust-proof, flexible, and keys are silent since it's made with silicon and the best: 15 bucks only

holy shat :shock: :shock: :shock:

that's the best keyboard I have ever seen.

dang hommie

700 is not bad. I would consider it at $250. I have spent like 200 on keyboards in past 5-6 years, im sure this would last longer than that! I never find a decent keyboard. My original one with a bad K key, is best but It's falling apart. I have gone through 2 logitechs and now 2 saitek's. nothing really floats my boat.

laser etched red keys ftw

$700? F that... My $20 UltraX keyboard is quiet enough and has tactile feedback that I'm sure this overpriced keyboard can't touch.

I suspect the reason this keyboard costs so much is because it is intended to be used in an industrial setting where resistance to water, vapors and dirt are important. It might excel in that setting, but I'm sure it would suck to use for a desktop.

The strong design might mean that the keys require more force to press than normal, which is a sure way to RSI.

Just recently had an ultrasound and that keyboard looks really similar to the one used with the computer connected to ultrasound equipment. I guess when you're spending thousands of dollars on equipment, spending $700 on the keyboard isn't as big a deal. :P

Regular keyboards are a good breeding ground for germs. This is probably why in a hospital examination room you would see such special keyboards.
