New Keyboard

Posted in Blog, and Computers

For the last five or six years I’ve been using an Azio “MK HUE” keyboard, which worked fine up to the point it didn’t; some sort of internal fault caused half of the keys to stop working.

Luckily this happened after I’d acquired an Azio “Retro Classic” keyboard from my roommate; he’d acquired it years ago but didn’t use it much because he wore off the keycaps and isn’t a touch-typer. He’s since moved to using the default Apple wireless keyboard, which makes me wince, but to each their own I guess. 🙂

Anyway, I found it during my final walk-through of the old duplex where he’d left it behind, so I picked it up, decided to clean it up, and buy a new set of key caps for it.

So after spending $60 on a new set of keycaps and having my regular keyboard die, I started using the “Retro Classic”… Unfortunately while it looks neat, it sucks as a keyboard.

So, last weekend I picked up a new Logitech G815 keyboard, and it seems to be pretty nice.

It’s a little cramped for my huge hands, but it types well and I’m almost settled in on it… I really like the big volume ‘knob’ on the upper-right of the keyboard though, that’s the killer feature for this model in my humble opinion.
