I have only spent a couple of minutes banging on it and so far am very pleased. Although it has been over 20 years since I last used the original AT keys, I would say this one indeed is a good emulation and feels good to me. I will be labeling my special function keys and then connecting it to the keyer on the rig. From this first brief test, I am confident I will find that I prefer it over the "modern" sets of keys I normally use.
Thanks for this preliminary report on the Unicomp "IBM_AT_clone" CW keyboard.
Sounds like this will make a fine alternative to the discontinued IBM M AT keyboard.
We look forward to your follow up report after you have used it for a while.
Thanks again Chuck !
Some typist like this board specifically because of the loud click. It is loud! For those who do not listen to their sidetone that probably is fine. I am in the camp where I like to copy my sidetone in real time (even though that leaves me in the QRS region, limited to around 60 wpm). Without headphones the noise would be a problem for me. I need to use headphones anyway to copy higher speeds, so the noise is not a big deal for me, but if anyone wants quiet, than they do not want this board.
to replace the Microsoft comfort curve 2000
that i was unhappy with. I bought the
Customizer 104 which is the same as the
Spacesaver model but has a larger border.
I really like this board. The feel is much
improved over the MS board. You actually
have to press the keys down to generate a
letter as compared to the other board that
spit out letters with just the slightest
brush of a finger. Yes, the board is a bit
noisy but it is no big deal. I also decided
to convert to the Dvorak layout and just
remap it using Windows OS. A bit of a slow
go after only 3 weeks but making progress.
