Final Thoughts

When it comes to what mechanical keyboard I want on my desktop out of the half dozen or so that I have used so far, this Matias solution is by far better than the others I have used. I gave this keyboard a few solid weeks of use and I am going to hate when it comes time to move onto another keyboard for testing. After my time with the Tactile Pro 3.0, I feel my typing in general has picked up its pace a bit and I am in love with the ease this keyboard offers you a huge selection of symbols for coding, writing, spread sheets - just about anything you can think that will take advantage of this will be easier and faster for you with the Tactile Pro 3.0. I am really at a loss of words to try to impress on you just how mice this mechanical keyboard really is.

Mac or PC, it doesn't matter, this keyboard is serious about typing - no gimmicks, no fancy LEDs, no programmable buttons on the side, unlike a mullet, this is pure business with very little party to it. The best feature about this keyboard is that the Tactile Pro is almost plug and play for a Mac, there are some things you need to do when you plug it in to finalize the setup and for PC you simply install a small driver to remap a few keys and you are off to the races.

This shiny yet elegant solution by far wins me over and I have never tried the legacy board this is replacing. I can now see why it was so sought after, even without the comparison to the Apple Extended keyboard, the Tactile Pro 3.0 is keyboard enough to stand all on its own for any potential buyer.

If you are a Mac user, I can't really think of a better solution to your needs. For the PC users, think outside of the box a bit here and deal with a couple of keys that aren't worded correctly and get over it. Matias is offering a keyboard that I really think you shouldn't miss. While this $130 - 150 solution isn't exactly geared to gaming, I had no issues with that, but the real focus is serious typists who are looking for form and functionality over "pretties and bling".

The serious typist in all of you knows I am right about this keyboard and if you are in the mechanical Keyboard market I strongly suggest you give Matias and the Tactile Pro 3.0 a really serious look. I promise you, you will not be disappointed in this purchase in the slightest.
