Typing with Speed and Luxury + Videos
I just got the Unicomp 104 Space Saver in the mail today!! This thing is simply amazing. I am really glad that I got the Space Saver model because I do need the desk space. It is so funny that I have something now so close to what a typewriter is but in digital format. The only thing that I will have to get use to is using the PC style keyboard with my Macbook. I don’t see much change besides not having the volume buttons, which doesn’t bother me too much. The keyboard was supposed to come last night but I missed the UPS guy. So with the note that he left, I signed it and wrote to him, “Please leave package to the left of door.” The whole thing is since I’m living in apartments right now they don’t like to leave packages at the door unless you have a note (Which I just found out today!) I have been missing the UPS guy a lot since I have lived here and I wish that I knew a while ago that all I had to do was leave him a note. Oh well…
Back to the keyboard, this thing is amazing. I love the way the buckling spring feels below my fingers. It is so just much smoother than the crappy rubber domes keyboards, just a bit more expensive and louder. I like the fact that I know when the key has made contact by a audible click. It is pleasant and reminds me a lot of typing on my typewriters. Another thing that I wanted to mention was that I find it much easier to type without looking at the keys. I think it has something to do with the way the keys are positions on the different levels, again, a lot like my typewriters.
In my opinion I love this little thing. The thing that made me give in was that I knew once I bought it I wouldn’t have to ever buy another keyboard. I can have this thing in service for quite a while. Once this computer is out of date this Unicomp keyboard will live on. That was the main selling point for me. Now I have something that is very pleasant to type on doing my Nano revisions. I would highly recommend this lovely keyboard to anyone here at the typosphere. This thing, with all of the schoolwork that I have to type up this week is going to have quite a lot of work to do. I am faithful that this thing will be able to accomplish my every task with out any problems.
