My cheap old LiteOn keyboard is starting to wear out so I want to replace it with something a bit nicer. Unfortunately there aren't any shops near by that have anything to try out. I don't need to see the keys when I type so it doesn't have to be backlit. I'm not entirely sure about mechanical keyboards, are they very loud? Are any in this price range really nicer than equivalently priced dome switch keyboards? Here are some of the keyboards I have been considering.
