I’ll admit that I’ve had quite a few keyboard mishaps over the years that have resulted in me sticking to cheaper models these days because of how often I’ve had to replace them. Of course if I had one of these Stealth Industrial keyboards it might actually stand up to the occasional tumble off the desk or being accidentally drowned in my favorite beverage.

The Stealth keyboard’s case is made of stainless steel and the keys themselves are made from an industrial silicone rubber pad meaning they’re completely waterproof. The keyboard also has a built-in optical trackball which is completely sealed and watertight and even has an adjustable tension ring that ensures optimal trackball smoothness for any user.

It’s definitely an impressive piece of hardware but then when I look at the Stealth Keyboard’s $1195 price tag I once again feel content with the $30 model I’m using right now.

  1. At that price, it should be made of platinum!

    I have a hard enough time explaining to the Mrs. why I need two $400 (each) video cards for “general computer” work….(games!!!!!), but $1200 for a frakin’ keyboard……..I might as well stick my wetted finger in an active light socket….

  2. Andrew, You’re using a 30$ keyboard? Feelling pimp? Im really happy with my Microsoft OEM Basic Keyboard (12 ?). Keys are nice and firm, no thrills, no usb-probs, no useless media-button/screen/player/control, no battery’s to wear out, semi-nice black finish, it’s (until now) rather drink resistant, and it doesnt take up a lot desk real estate. Good value. Only problem is the microsoft logo but i dont mind.

    Now.. i could destroy around a 100 of these for the price of one Stealthboard.

    I actually consider it the overall best microsoft product i encounterd ever.

  3. Does anyone know where I can get a “natural” keyboard? The only one I’ve been able to find is by Microsoft and they want $50+ for it. It has all kinds of extra customizable buttons, but I don’t use any of them. I just don’t want the carpal tunnel syndrome I had going for me before I switched from the standard wrist killer.

  4. Being a gamer, the number pad looks too scrunched into the rest of the keyboard.

    I agree with Nagga that you don’t need an expensive keyboard. The cheap ones work just fine, and they don’t break near often enough to justify such a hefty price tag on the Stealth board.
