This keyboard has a GREAT tactile feel. I am a big fan of the Apple aluminum keyboards, and that's still my main keyboard. I bought one of these SIIG as a cheap one to keep at my desktop at the house that I don't use much. It's perfect. I can't believe it was ~$10. I like it almost as much as the Apple one which was $50. If you're looking for an inexpensive keyboard I highly recommend this one. It feels way better than most of the stock Dell, HP, Sun, etc. I'm a huge fan.
