I had an actual buckling-spring keyboard for a while in the late '90s and can't deal with that kind of clatter anymore.
I had forgotten how nice it is to have a keyboard that doesn't feel like a tray of Jell-O. The position of the USB connector is (still) every bit as bad as indicated by JBI, but on my desk that shouldn't be much of an issue since the keyboard doesn't get moved around much. The only other annoyances are the blue LEDs for the (n)-LOCK indicators. At some point after the warranty expires, I might change those to a dim green or yellow.
I'm loving mine. Wish I could afford to buy ten and put them everywhere I need a keyboard.
Though some good white backlighting might be nice for some applications; I keep my gaming setup a little off-kilter, and finding the home row isn't always reflex, let alone finding specific keys.
