If you have fond memories of the sound and feel of the IBM Model M keyboard, R&B Mods has a treat for you; the rest of you membrane fans can pretty much skip their review of the i-Rocks Cherry MX Mechanical Keyboard.  This 97 button keyboard uses mechanical switches for key depression, but not a buckling-spring keyswitch, so it isn’t quite the same but still offers feedback.  It is a shiny black USB board however, and it sports a pair of USB plugs and blue LEDs under the three lock keys, which does make it a lot more modern looking.  Take a look and see if you can satisfy your clicky key lust with this new board
