I've been using one for several months now.  Works great, no more dust problems, takes a bit to get used to the feel of the buttons.  The buttons can teter-toter as you push them down if you're not pushing directly down on the middle of them.

Got my keyboard today, postage was a bit slow but, well its here now so.....
Anyway it is very nice to use, the buttons feel great and so far have not found the teeter-totter that Scott mentioned above. Mine is a different make so that may explain it. Going to get another couple, one for the mill and the other for the workshop computer.
Well impressed :D

Not sure if they ship.

Be aware these keyboards or orange'ish in color .
Its like a Salvage electronics place.
