I go through a keyboard about once a year. I’ve bought really expensive keyboards and really cheap ones. It doesn’t seem to matter what I pay for them – they wear out, or a certain key loses its sensitivity to my touch, or whatever happens that makes it a stumbling point for me in writing.
I tried a different brand last time — a gaming keyboard designed to take the impact of a gamer, and the keys lit up in a neat way. It had wonderful sound when I clicked the keys. They were a little less sensitive to touch – I had to press a little harder – and in the last year I had it, the pain in the joints of my fingers has increased. I don’t know how much of that has to do with my age and my profession, or the keyboard.
I went back to my old brand for my new keyboard. I paid a fraction of the cost, but it feels perfect as I type on it. It’s like my brain remembers exactly how to press on the keys. The clickety-clack is what my ears is listening for. The longer I type on it, the more familiar it becomes and the faster my fingers can fly.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
