    it is based on cherry gold crosspoint contacts and adjusted coil springs, very similiar to the legendary IBM keyboard.

    and it claims to be even faster because of reduced (30% less) key stroke distance.

    so maybe this one is worth a buy ?

    definitely get it, as long as it can handle as many simultaneous inputs as you can throw at it.
  3. how much is it? i was eyeing this keyboard awhile back but couldn't bring myself to pay $150 for a keyboard
  4. the special thing about this keyboard is that you can press as many keys as you want simultaneously:

    here is there advertisement text:
    the true problem remains that it sells around 100 euro... way too expensive for a keyboard i think.

    but there is the "normal" cherry G80 keyboard with those gold crosspoint kontacts - maybe this is equally good except those 30% shorter key-strokes found in K1 .. who knows.

  6. this raptor K1 is not cheap,it comes in around 100 euro in germany, so i thin it will be slightly over 100 doller in usa.
