What is the worst keyboard youve ever used
« on: Sun, 18 December 2011, 15:45:39 »
mine is the g81-1800  it feels like you are typing  on apiece of wood, solid, but it feels like garbage, the only good thing about it are the doubleshots that come with it which you should rip off imedietly and throw away the board.

Funny you said the G81. I had a MX 8100 that just flexed like crazy and felt like ass.

Probably not as bad as the hideously warn RD on the receptionists computer though.

I am with you on this one. If you hit the keys from an angle that **** jammed there and wouldn't go down. the enter key was the worst since it was wobblier than dubstep and almost impossible to press.

Only good thing about the Lycosa is that it infuriated me enough to make me consider paying more money than I'd usually want to for a keyboard and get a superior mechanical. (And I kind of liked the audio jack in the keyboard to be honest except the awkward placement of it.)

That "china buckling spring copies" board i bought at a flea market. It was really worn down but i just grabbed it :) Bad idea and half of the keys was hard to even press down at all, hehe. And on top of that it had arabic on the keys cluttering it up making it hard to see the normal text.

That would be low profile, but not scissor switched, rubber dome Samsung keyboard my parents were given as a free extra while doing some computer related shopping few years ago (I think around 2005). It should still be somewhere in basement and i will make some pics and maybe even video of this piece of poo. It was absolutely impossible to type on that without making typos as keys were not registering if you didn't hit it in middle and bottom out, they were also sticky, sometimes locking up pressed. Disgusting.

Packard Bell - I can't remember the model number but it was an ancient foil and foam, and the foam had broken down to grit.
After Trumpís speech, Trumpís team sent out a mass email to his supporters (supposedly directly from Trump) soliciting half a million dollars in donations specifically for something named as the ďOfficial Secure the Border Fund.Ē  The email asserted that the half a million needed to be raised in one day, and that there was a 9 PM Eastern ďdeadline" for the funds to be donated.  The email went on to say that Trump had directed his staff to bring him a list of ďEVERY AMERICAN PATRIOTĒ (all caps in the original, of course) who had donated.  (Never mind wondering how he would have time to read such a list after 9 pm, when his speech began.)
At the end of the email ó my guess would be in smaller print ó was a disclaimer that all donations would be given to Trumpís 2020 re-election campaign fund.  Thatís right ó NOT to some alleged ďOfficial Secure the Border Fund.Ē
After the speech, a second email went out to supporters who had not donated, asserting that when Trump reviewed the list of donations, ďhe noticed that your name was not on the list.Ē  (I kid you not.)  Therefore, the ďdeadline" was being extended so that the singled-out supporter could have a chance to donate to the ďOfficial Secure the Border Fund" and get on the list.

I've heard many people say the old Keytronic foil and foam keyboards were crap, but I've got a Victor 9000 keyboard from 1982 and I'd list it as one of the best keyboards I've tried. Maybe Keytronic later changed the foam materials or something to a cheaper version that felt worse and failed quicker.

I used to have a Wave as my main board (and I still use one at work) and I didn't find it that bad. Whilst the key feel admittedly wasn't great, the position was fantastic for me. They changed the key feel a lot for the newer version (450), I'm not sure if I prefer it, but it wasn't great in the first place so...

The worst I've ever used is probably a well worn Microsoft 4000 (that crazy split board). Really nasty thing.

I learned to code in BASIC using an IBM PCjr, with the amazingly stiff and unresponsive chiclet keyboard:



Luckily, my dad realized this was a piece of junk, and as soon as the newer keyboard was introduced, he got one:



Which, by the way, would be cool to be able to find one and make it work with a modern PC. :becky:

The older one was wireless though.

Like my Apple Aluminum.  Nice keyboard the Apple Aluminum Wireless.

Oh, the newer version was wireless too, but you could plug it in also. I never liked the IR aspect--the novelty wore off in a couple of weeks (and I was 13). Both keyboards shared the same basic internals as far as I know, but somehow the 2nd version improved the feel a lot. Like, you could actually type on it.

You have no idea how many COMPUTE! program listings went on my keyboard...Ah, the memories.

I have two of these HP boards.  KB-0316.

They have a nice weight to them, but after a while they just wear and suck.  This is the keyboard I'm using which made me look for the mechanical dream.  It's the standard board that comes with their business PCs.  It's better than the nasty cheap consumer $10 board, but not much.

HP's silver and black keyboards vary a lot. Certain ones are decent as far as rubber domes go (the sole SK-2880 I've used, another one whose name model number I can't recall), and others are terrible (KB-0316, SK-2885).

HP SK-2565 was pretty bad - the keycaps were pretty wobbly and key feel was mediocre, and the space bar had binding issues. This seems pretty typical of late 80s-early 2000s Silitek boards though.

Apple's pre-chiclet white keyboard was also pretty terrible, especially when dirty (e.g. in a public environment).

Second only to those nasty rubber mat keyboards, it's a well used Logitech Wave keyboard.

This is was the last straw for me.  It was using this keyboard that put the nail in the coffin for me buying my first  mechanical.  The keyboard made me want to cut my fingers off.  And that was AFTER I fully dissembled it, and washed it out.  It was used by a previous co-worker who left for another team.  I stole his discarded Performance MX mouse and Wave keyboard... the keyboard had to go.


My roommate prefers his to any of mine. He says he likes the ergonomics. I can't wait to see his review of a kinesis when I finally get one.

For me, it's the bottom-end logitech one I used daily before I found the model M in the attic. The keys are pretty worn.

By far, the hp ku 0316. This lad sucks. Absolute sucks.  I do not like it at all and it is clacky, loud and annoying. I destest this with my robloxian soul a lot. People type so slow on this thing and it makes an ugly clacking sound. Keep in mind that iíve never typed on cherry mx nor a mechanical switch, just tested out the arrow keys for cherry mx blue in a store. You have to press it so hard that itís not even funny, and it is made out of cheap plastic.
My school board purchases this because itís only 15 bucks. Even worse, look at the customer reviews, saying itís great when itís really not.. ;)

The plastic Apple Aluminium clone? My school has these, and while I hate them too.. if you think that's a bad keyboard - have you tried a HP PR1101U? Or even worse - a worn KB 0316?

Thread necromancy and double post in a single post, yay!

I can't decide what keyboard is actually the worst, so here are many keyboards in different categories:

Worst keyboard I use on almost daily: HP PR1101U.
Rubbery, flimsy, stiff, ISO. 500g of plastic. Feels like typing on breast implants. Very dry and hollow breast implants. The desk vibrates when you type on it. It's fairly responsive, as if you don't need to mash the keys everytime I press a key. You can't use it as a weapon. And it's not even that cheap (20 bucks retail price).
Honorable mention: Genius KB-110X. Same as above, but it's horribly spongy and is actually reasonable priced (only 200% the manufacturing cost, instead of 500%)

Worst keyboard I have at home: A4Tech KD800L. It's a chiclet (or at least the chiclet clone where there are no key stabilizers. Speaking of key stabilizers - after a year of use the Enter is the wobbliest I've seen. It's like 5 degrees when you look at it wrong. And 10 degrees if you type on it.

Worst keyboard I've ever laid my hands on: Tie between some brandless wireless keyboard, an Apple Wireless Keyboard and. The first is cheap, flimsy and feels like typing on an actual kitchen sponge. Kitchen sponge covered in rubber. AWK is expensive, kinda study, feels nice to type on... but I can't type on it because it's a chiclet.
Honorable mention: Post-2014 Razer Blackwidow, because someone at Razer thought that a linear ear buster (Razer Green) is an amazing idea.

Honorable mention: Logitech K120. If it weren't for the actually quite good typing feel, I'd not recommend it to someone who "just wants a keyboard" and shelling out 30 bucks for a Masterkeys Lite L is too much for him/her/it. Flimsy build quality (as in light and all plastic, but at least it has actual screws in them) and still quite expensive (20 bucks for ISO model because everyone and his mother complains about ANSI),

Razer BlackWidow v2.

I returned it 4 times, and asked for money back after the 5th one.

The first one had several 'sticky' switches that were hard to press unless you had the finger exactly on the middle. The second one had several weird keys where the cap felt like 'falling' to the left or right on bottoming out, even though both the keycap and the switch visually looked fine. Third one had a very weird spacebar that literally hurt the finger on its 'spring-back' movement. Unless I removed the finger after pressing the spacebar instantly, I got a strong 'shock' back - wasn't present of the first 2 boards. The fourth had #1 and #2 issues combined.

The fifth was bent. Initially I noticed that it wobbles on the desk, and later tried to actually check the back side for bends, and it was horrible:


Returned it for money, bought a Corsair K95 Platinum, got a bit disappointed by it too, now waiting for my local store to get the latest TKL Leos and Varmilos to make the final choice.

Has anyone tried one of those projection keyboards?

For me, its this abomination. Chiclet, horrifically pad printed crap with the most diseased bottom row of all time

As far as mechs.. I was pretty bummed the first time I tried stock topre (hhkb). THEN I tried 55g domes with purple silent sliders and fell in love.

By far, the hp ku 0316. This lad sucks. Absolute sucks.  I do not like it at all and it is clacky, loud and annoying. I destest this with my robloxian soul a lot. People type so slow on this thing and it makes an ugly clacking sound. Keep in mind that iíve never typed on cherry mx nor a mechanical switch, just tested out the arrow keys for cherry mx blue in a store. You have to press it so hard that itís not even funny, and it is made out of cheap plastic.
My school board purchases this because itís only 15 bucks. Even worse, look at the customer reviews, saying itís great when itís really not.. ;)

Yeah, I can agree with you. iíve Typed on a worn one before.

The plastic Apple Aluminium clone? My school has these, and while I hate them too.. if you think that's a bad keyboard - have you tried a HP PR1101U? Or even worse - a worn KB 0316?
