Product Description

Finally, there exists an amazing mechanical key switch keyboard without the noise normally associated with mechanical keyboards! The Quiet Pro Keyboard uses Matias' new Quiet Click mechanical key switches, which were over 2 years in the making. They deliver a feel that is unmatched for comfort, without sacrificing the tactile feedback you need to type really fast. Also includes 3 port USB 2.0 hub, Mac option symbols printed on keys, special anti-ghosting circuitry so that the keyboard keeps up with the fastest Mac typists, laser etched keys so the characters don't wear off, and traditional sculpted keytops for comfort and speed.

It is quiet, sturdy, and feels great.

Finally a keyboard that feels like my old IBM Selectric, a very quiet tactile feel, quick reaction time and so low stress on the hands.

I don't know that they're the best keyboards on the market for everyone, but they certainly are for me.

I needed a new keyboard, and needed it to be tactile. Tried the Matias Pro that was NOT quiet. Very nice keyboard, but it was WAY TOO CLACKY for me. Noisy. I sold it on Ebay.
Then I ordered the Matias FK302Q. I got it out of its box and compared it to my old but beloved Macally keyboard. Same basic key layout, but slimmer sides and sleek.
And it matches my iMac for looks.
Started typing. Wow. I can really fly with this new keyboard. It feels right, and no more noise than my old keyboard.
But BONUS: the keys have special alternate characters shown right on the keys. You don't have to remember or guess. You can see it in front of you.
And the little lift legs under the keyboard allow you to give a bit of an angle to the keyboard if you like. Which is what I prefer.
I am loving this.
I feel like Goldilocks finding that perfect bowl of porridge that is JUST RIGHT.

I had the Matias Tactile Pro Keyboard for Mac, and really liked it. It's more noisy, clacky, but I like that. It was a true writer's keyboard. Unfortunately, the spacebar suddenly died. Everything else works, but no spacebar. So I looked into getting a new keyboard from Matias, and discovered this Quiet Pro keyboard.

After about a month, I like it. It is, indeed, quiet compared to the Tactile Pro. I think I prefer the overall touch of the Tactile Pro. Plus, the sound buttons don't work. Actually, you need to hold down the "fn" key and then hit the volume buttons. That is VERY clunky. BUT, I can live with it. I do wish they had a control panel or something so I could customize the keys (at least the function keys). Some customizing works, some doesn't.

So yes, I like it, but don't love it. As I think about it, I think I did love the Tactile Pro (which I still have on my home computer).

UPDATE April 2014:
I previously wrote that my Tactile Pro's spacebar stopped working, so I got the Quiet Pro to replace it. Well, the Quiet Pro has now started doing weird stuff, typing multiple characters with single keystrokes, and it is unusable. So that makes two Matias keyboards that have broken during the past year or so--and these are WAY too expensive to risk me getting another. I do still have a Tactile Pro at home, purchased when I got the other one (for work), and it's still humming along, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. There appears to be something fragile about these keyboards. That said--these have by far the best touch of any keyboard currently on the market (at least for me, a writer and lifelong typist). Matias: I'd love to be your biggest fan, but I can't keep spending big bucks on fragile keyboards.

I've been a mechanical keyboard user for years and wanted to get a quiet mechanical keyboard to use in areas where the sound would be bothersome to others. I've tried Das and other quiet keyboards but was sold by the hype around this one. I must say I'm disappointed. As another reviewer has said the keys tops move around a lot. The springs are also soft, so much so that I sometimes depress the keys by just resting my fingers on the keys. Giving up the sound, I would expect the keyboard to make up for the loss by giving better feedback to the fingers. To me it doesn't. In my opinion, I believe the scissor switch keyboards give better tactile feedback. On the plus side the USB ports are nice.

Finally a keyboard that feels like my old IBM Selectric, a very quiet tactile feel, quick reaction time and so low stress on the hands. I am back to writing quickly without mistakes and without annoying the person next to me. It has a very solid feel, the keys don't wobble as one of the reviewers stated (perhaps they got a raw deal by ordering an open box item?). This keyboard is worth the extra money, too bad it doesn't come in a blue tooth version also.

I can type on this keyboard all day. It is quiet, sturdy, and feels great. I personally could do without the numeric keypad. But since it's there, I use it. Everything about this keyboard is top-notch. I'm so relieved to finally find an "elite" keyboard that is QUIET. Bravo!

This keyboard is the best option I've found as far as a mechanical keyboard for a Macintosh office environment. I have used mine for just over a year here at the office.

I am a computer programmer by trade, and was unhappy with the Apple Bluetooth membrane keyboard. I have issues with tendonitis in my wrists, and so I have been through a few keyboards - I tried the Razer Black Widow, and it was pretty good, but far too loud. This one feels wonderful. I've also become accustomed to having the extra function keys, and I've used the free Karabiner app to map them (thank you, Matias, for not requiring extra software to map those, like Razer does).

The tactile feedback is as good as it can be without the extra noise that people associate with mechanical keyboards. In fact, the Apple keyboard is nearly as noisy as the Quiet Pro, depending on your typing style.

As for the customer service, one previous reviewer mentioned that the only support is through email. I can attest to this, but that wasn't an issue for me. I have to say that I suffered a space bar issue (like another previous reviewer) - it would not register, and then it would stick. Of course, I was two weeks past the warranty period, and so I emailed Matias to ask about repair options, and they elected to replace or repair it for free, since I was just out of warranty. The customer service was a very good experience for me.

A year in, I'm very happy with Matias products, and I have even bought an extra Tactile Pro Mini for home (the noise wasn't an option for me at work). I don't know that they're the best keyboards on the market for everyone, but they certainly are for me.
