Good deal but what are you going to do with 10 of them?

Throw them at the people in front of him who place large orders in the drive thru when all he wants is a soft taco and a caramel empanada!

Has the new standard for a PC motherboard dropped PS/2 connections yet, newest I have still have them. I like some of the better quality old keyboards and keep an eye open for them at swap meets etc. I don't think anybody makes a really good keyboard anymore (typed from my vintage Micron).

Yeah, good deal. I will select one that the price is right. The cheapest would be unreliable, I think.

Off topic, but my burgeoning collection of quality mechanical keyboards begs to differ. I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for, but take a look at deskthority or geekhack for discussions of the current best-built boards.

Also, you can buy PS/2 to USB converters for about the same price as these keyboards if your motherboard is legacy free.

Also also, this is a steal, even if for no other reason than to use as test boards.

I know that sometimes, these cheap generic keyboards don't last more than a couple of years (or possibly less). But for under $3 ea, you come out ahead buying a few extra at a time. I supply all of my friends with keyboards (if they want them), and I bundle them with computers I sell. (Which hasn't been that often lately, but I just gave away a PC yesterday, and I didn't have a spare "cheap" keyboard and mouse to give away with it. I ended up giving them a keyboard and mouse that came with my current pre-built PC, that I wasn't using.)
