Oh yikes, don't pay that much money for mechanical keyboard with a USB
If that old-style mechanical feel and sound are important to you, it is
relatively easy to find those old AT DIN5 keyboards for free.
To connect one of these old keyboards to a modern computer is relatively
easy. All you need is a AT DIN5 to PS/2 converter, then you need an
"active" PS/2 to USB converter; the key ingredient is active... not the
passive models that you are more familiar with. These two components are
easy to find on eBay and cost under $20.00.
If you want specific part references, just ask. :-)
