When you write copy for over 1200 products a year, you’re allowed to be particular about your keyboard, right? We’ll admit that we were smitten by the Qwerkywriter when it came out. Yes, we bought one. But we keep it at home, because at work we need the keypad. There are Excel and Google Sheets to be tackled in the Timmyverse.

But this Ncore Retro Mechanical Keyboard looks like a typewriter plus has the function keys and keypad of the 104-key US layout. The round keycaps are chromium-plated and laser-etched, plus the switches beneath are rated at 70 million keystrokes so this keyboard is going to last a long time. The manufacturer says they went with Kailh White switches because they are the closest to the feel of a classic manual typewriter with an audible click. We’re just hoping we don’t have to deal with getting our fingers stuck between the keys when we’re not paying attention. Man, that pinched. That, and when you’d go “asdfasdf” get all the type bars (the little arms with each of the letters on them) stuck together? That sucked.
