Keyboard.....
Which one? Mechanical? Regular?
Any recommendations? Only thing I need is it to be silent and not glow like a lamp. Mostly for coding work stuff, 0 gaming.

    If you're trying to be silent then a mechanical keyboard clearly is the wrong choice :D

    Mechanical keyboards are always louder than normal ones, though for some people(like me) that's a bonus, I just like the sound of it.

    That said they are great for typing and the cheaper ones usually only have a very basic backlight that you can switch off anyways.

    Aside from that maybe some ergonomic keyboard might be your cup of tea, but I don't have any experience with these.

    The first mechanical keyboard was some cherry MX which is suuuper great, then I bought some random chinese mech. KB but some keys were registered like 0-5 times. Bought a IBM model m 2 weeks ago and its the best one I've ever used!

    In school we have random rubberdomes and I get aids every time I have to use it

    @b3b3 Not to mention school keyboards tend to be not very hygienic.
    Pro tip: Don't ever turn these things on their head or shake them too much.

    @Vitz Any good keyboard with membrane switches. Go for Logitech or Microsoft one. They are portable so that u can take it with you if needed. And try to get a bluetooth KB.

    @b3b3 you could bludgeon someone with a model m and still type your senior thesis on it

    I always used the regular Logitech or Microsoft keyboard but now I'm ready for the next level. I was sure people here would recommend me better keyboards for long coding sessions. But now I noticed that most of the users here are gamer kids...
    Was looking to spend 100$ on a nice keyboard.

    @Vitz Well i will be honest i have a Logitech G810 Spectrum. But i got it because i like mechanical keyboards but i dont like loud mechanical keys. If u really want silent mechanical keyboard go for Logitech one. They use romer-g keys which are silent (compared to cherry-mx). And i understand why people say get a $100 keyboard. Its because if you get one of the good one, you will get value for what you are paying for. Mech-KB have a good lifespan. Also if u finally decide to go for mech-kb, dont go for Razer. The quality is not good. But given what you require u can still work with regular kb. Totally depends if u want Mech-kb or not.

    For programming/typing, I personally would not recommend mechanical keyboards. Most of the time, the keys tend to be tilted, which makes it hard to type fast. There might be some mechanical with different kinds of keys, but that's just my experience with mechanical.
