Matias started almost three decades ago, in 1989 in a small basement in Toronto, Canada. For a company operating on smaller scales of operation relative to the gaming keyboard market giants, it is a testament to their brand and products that they have not only survived the years but gotten stronger. The two co-founders, Edgar Matias (hence the name) and Steve McGowan, still manage the business, including day-to-day operations, and Steve was in fact the person who helped make this review possible in the first place. Their biggest claim to fame are potentially their Matias switches, which are inspired by the old Alps design, and today, we take a look at their keyboard featuring their Quiet Click switches. Thanks a lot to Matias for providing a review sample.
The Matias Quiet Pro is for the typist who values a great typing experience and no more. It is a full-size keyboard with a modified ANSI layout that includes some dedicated media buttons as well, and Matias claims this to be the quietest mechanical keyboard in the world because it uses their Quiet Click switches. Let us begin our look at the keyboard by going through the specifications in the table below.
