Ouch. I could really use these here in the machine shop to keep them free of graphite dust, but I can get a lot of cheap replacement keyboards for $700.

As they said, these are especially made for the instant messenger needs of high-flying, amazingly-courageous fighter pilots. So you can see the reason behind the price, now...

Sorry but what exactly needs to be "sealed from weather" in a basic $10 PS/2 keyboard off ebay? Think only a fool would spend $700 on a keyboard

Couple of months ago I was working with some people on development of shipboard computer for purposes of daily fishing reporting to central government. You can probably guess the severity of conditions these babies will operate in.

Well, this keyboard wouldn't stand a chance in our configuration, since the project specification required IP66 + IP67 standard to be met (needs to withstand submerging in 1m of seawater and still function properly).

And, although we had an adequate keyboard, superior to this one, it only cost us around $150.00 per keyboard and additional $470.00 of NRE costs, since we ordered specific keyboard layout. And our order was for only 100 PCS. So, $15,470.00 total.

I really don't get the price tag on this one... :wtf:
Maybe it's those shiny lights.. we had none on ours... :(

Btw, only universe in which I would give $700 for this keyboard is the one in which it kicks criminals' asses all by itself...
