First mechanical keyboard was a Das model s ultimate back in 2011! Always loved it since people would freak out about the letters not being on  the caps. Don't have the board anymore but will always remember it!

Awesome! Thanks for the giveaway  :)

The first keyboard I ever got was a Logitech K120. Well...I didn't technically purchase it, my mom bought it for me out of the kindness of her heart  :-*

Have to admit, this keyboard has lasted a long, long time. It's been through a lot...almost all of college, many many gaming sessions, ragequits, etc. etc....

The first I remember purchasing was an Apple Wireless keyboard. This was my main "portable" keyboard throughout college. Before native Bluetooth HID support was a thing, I fondly remember rooting my Moto Droid just to install the needed files to get it working. I got quite a bunch of looks for using a keyboard with my phone. Even used it a few times to take notes during class...people looked at me odd then, but now we all use keyboards with iPads and whatnot.

Then there's the Razer Blackwidow I bought for my 21'st birthday. Mac layout...backlit...it was (and is) quite a special board to me. I'm actually selling it so I can get some cash for a HHKB, but that might be slightly unrelated. :blank:

My first keyboard was the old ****ty dell that came stock with Dell computers. Eventually we all migrated to laptops, but I still used that thing to play with games. I still used it up until 2 summers ago when I got my Razer BWU. Here is a picture of it :) :

My first "keyboard" was actually a typewriter that I wrote on when I was about 5 years old. The typewriter was one that belonged to my Grandfather when he was a CBS reporter in the 50s and 60s. My mom has told me that my Grandfather would be up late typing pretty much every night, and that her and her siblings would fall asleep to the sound of the keys. I still own the typewriter in question, and I'll update with a picture if I can find it.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Here is a picture of my first keyboard! I bought it because I liked the slim profile. However some of the keys started sticking after too much gaming so I eventually switched to a mechanical keyboard (Max Blackbird).

My first keyboard I ever owned was a rubber-domed Dell that came with my first computer. I was young, and my keyboard was an amazing multi-purpose tool; acting as a window to the wonderful world of the internet, controller to play LEGO Pizza Island, and as a trashcan all at the same time. Unsurprisingly, it didn't last long, but boy did it open up Pandora's box. I'll admit, I've upped my keyboard game quite a bit, but I doubt I'll ever be able to have another keyboard that can act as a trashcan (mainly due to the fact that I'm an adult who actually cares about keyboards now) so even though I no longer have it, it'll always be special to me in at least a nostalgic sense.

My first keyboard coincided with my first gaming console --- The Atari 2600



Brings back good old memories as I spent so much time playing Donkey Kong and Pacman on the Atari.  Anyhow one day, my dad brought home the Compumate.  Basically what you see in the picture is what you get. 

I remember spending a lot of time with my brother playing their compose music game to make what a 5 year old would consider to be "Mozart" like music at the time...  garbled midi music with no beats and ton of random high pitched notes just to get a good laugh!   :))

Looking back at the layout, it's very similar to a Poker in the way that you had to combined the "Function" key to access the important navigation arrows on the keypad.  The navigation keys was essential to be able to add and modify the pitch of each note.  Of course the keyboard was pretty crummy in comparison to a standard keyboard.  I recall having to press those keys really hard to get them to work!   :p

Thanks Martin for the giveaway!

The first keyboard I ever bought that didn't come with my computer purchase was a ROCCAT Isku. I thought that thing was the slickest back in the day. It had blue LEDs everywhere, had some dope customizable settings, and had media keys galore. Many nights in high school and college were spent playing games on that keyboard.

I look back now and wonder what I was doing with my life.

My first keyboard, some random Logitech board!



This keyboard lasted through various PC upgrades and I had some great times playing Battlefield 2142 on it. This was pretty much the keyboard I used through middles school and early high school until I purchased a Razer Lycos for $20 at a local garage sale.

Wow, I barely remember my first keyboard.  It was attached to the "computer", which then connected to my TV for video output.  I want to say it was from the Tandy family.  This would have been 1986 or 87.  It went out with the trash sometime in the early 90s.  :(  My "second" keyboard was part of an Apple IIe and it belonged to my elementary school's "computer lab".  We mostly used it to play Mario Brothers.  :P

Since I can't show either of those I'll show my first keyboard build instead.

I guess my first keyboard would technically be the one on a sony vaio that I bought as my first laptop. I was in 6th grade and it was just my birthday, and I saw the laptop during a best buy black friday sale. Ugh I loved that keyboard. My first aftermarket keyboard was a Leopold FC200R, it was my first mech and I had bought it on reddit from /u/kudos_and_godspeed . Still have taht board and I use it often :)

Rosewill RK-9000i with Cherry blue switches

Since I have no idea what my first keyboard ever was, I'd rather just post my first mechanical board. I actually just sold the Rosewill to my good friend because I have my new KUL-ES 87 with Cherry clears, and I bought the KC60 with Gatron blacks off Massdrop

Happy Hacking Keyboard Pro2. Black on Black.

That was maybe 3-4 years ago and was a departing gift given to me by a company I used to work for. It was one of the best things ever because it led me down this somewhat expensive, very cool road of mechanical keyboards. The board now has a HASU controller which makes it even more awesome.

I actually just recently re-acquired the M2 from my parent's house. Amazing that they held onto it for so many years.

My first keyboard was a wireless Logitech rubber dome. Not a great keyboard by any stretch of the imagination, but it was dirt cheap, and it served its purpose admirably. Also, unifying receiver is great.

My first mech was an ES-87 with clears. I was originally going to buy a CM quickfire xt or rapid (I had a $15 discount code from the switch tester), but they were never in stock on CM's store, so I figured I'd try the clears and get a quickfire with browns later if I didn't like them. Turns out clears are awesome. clears4lyfe

Pic-related is the first dedicated keyboard I bought with my own money. Before I had only laptop keyboards, and when I graduated college I was working on a novel and wanted to get a good keyboard to use. I heard a special on NPR some time in 2009 about the IBM Model M and did some research on it afterward.
Since I didn't have a desktop yet I wanted one with USB, and that's when I heard about Unicomp. Bought one and it's been my daily driver since. It's still in immaculate condition because I'm OCD about it.

First mouse and keyboard would have come with my first computer.  The keyboard was a Dell SK-8110 while the mouse was a Dell M-UR69 manufactured by Logitech.  While they were the basic OEM models included with every computer, in hindsight they weren’t all that bad.  I've been exposed to a number of OEM mice and keyboards since then that were infinity worse.  (I still actually have that mouse beside me at work so when an unsuspecting colleague tries to use my computer for a minute and can't figure out how to use my trackball, they can grab the mouse and keep on going.)

As for my first mechanical keyboard, that would be a Coolermaster Quick Fire Pro with MX Browns.

I'm going to talk about the first keyboard I bought when I was fairly young for my first gaming build (I did use a basic dell board prior to it but not for long). The first board I bought was a rubber dome Logitech g15. It was around $100 and with being around the age of 14 it was fairly expensive. This was the board that had a tiltable display screen at the top and a bunch of macro buttons. This board was my weapon in many hours of vanilla WoW and Counterstrike: Source. One day however when I was cleaning up my computer area a bit I moved my hand to fast and spilled a glass of orange juice into it. Without any guide for dealing with the spill all I did was unplug it but it was too late. :( rip G15

My first two keyboards were the standard apple keyboard for their computers at the time of purchase: the A1048 and the A1243.

[ Guests cannot view attachments ] [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

After a few years of the latter keyboards, I bought a Razer Deathstalker. (Bad idea)

Once annoyed by the bad design, I decided to research what these 'mechanical keyboard' things were. Then I bought my Rosewill RGB80, which is my current keyboard.

My first keyboard came as part of keyboard and mouse kit that was a combo deal with the case I chose for my first build.  It was a Chieftec wireless KB and mouse combo that was the same color as my green Chieftec case.  It was approx 2002-2003 at the time.  TigerDirect still has the item up: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=485335

I've been searching for the past 45 minutes for a picture of my Acer 500+ XT with no luck. I got it with a keyboard that had the function keys (all 10 of them) on the left side and not on top. I really don't remember if it was mechanical or not, although I doubt it. When I sold it, it was really yellow looking. Wow, that was like 24 years ago...

Thank you for awakening some memories.
Real men do it with a keyboard.

My first keyboard, that wasn't attached to a laptop, was a Logitech K350. Was wireless and let me play pc games while sitting on my couch   :). Thanks for doing this Martin.

This is the first keyboard I remember using

I used that thing from about age 3 to 10. Then one day the letter E stopped working and it was about time for a computer upgrade anyways

My first keyboard was on the commadore 64 that my parents bought at a garage sale.



I remember typing out BASIC programs to make ASCII birds fly across the screen.  Eventually, my dad gave me pirated copies of such classics as Mr. Robot, Space Taxi (still have fond memories of that one), and Gauntlet.  Good times.
