ok so my mom does medical transcription as a business and has used the same keyboard for about 10 years now and the spacebar is finally giving out, so i am looking for a keyboard that has a good bounce in the keys and will be able to hold up to constant abuse...doesnt need bells and whistles...just a number pad and standard keys in it...just looking for one that has good feel and bouncy keys (no short keys like u see in some slim design) and no keyboards like u would find on a laptop...i know its picky but hey the faster u go the more money u make

thanks for any suggestion...price range is whatever...am willing to pay more for quality but no more than lets just say $100 but remember i may be able to stretch a little i understand u get wat u pay for

thanks for any suggestions!!!

I'll go you one better. How about one for under $30?

I am also very fussy with keyboards. Always used the very best wireless Logitech models. Not cheap, but great. Then I had trouble on one of my systems with the bluetooth connection and after looking around I decided to try the Logitech 600. Liked it so much I bought two more - just as backups for other computers. I think it's great - and as I said, it's cheap. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-920-000021-Access-Keyboard-600/dp/B000O656FE

Oh - and if you don't like it (and I'll bet you do), there's no better company than Amazon when it comes to returns.

Personally I like the ergo keyboards
They take a little getting used to at first but I can really fly on it and they are really comfy too.
I never get tired using one.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Gotta agree with Eyesee. If a lot of time is spent on a keyboard as it would seem your Mom does then Ergo is the way to go. After a little learning curve they can`t be beat.

Wrist strain and fatigue are real. A well laid out work area set around an Ergo keyboard will pay dividends.

A good quality wireless mouse\keyboard should not suffer from lag. I know many who play FSP games using wireless. They would be the first to complain if a good wireless suffered from any lag.

I like the Microsoft ones. The keys have a good feel & arent mushy.
I tend to wail on my keyboards pretty hard and have a very unorthodox typing technique & they work well for me.
It takes a little getting used to at first. You have to figure out where to put your hands.
Once I got used to mine I can really go on it.
In the beginning there was the command line.
