It feels amazing.
The Mini Quiet Pro uses Matias’ new Quiet Click mechanical keyswitches. They deliver a feel that’s unmatched for comfort — without sacrificing the tactile feedback you need to type really fast.
Compact for comfort & travel.
There are several advantages that come with a compact keyboard…
- More free space on your desk.
- Using your mouse is more comfortable — because you don’t have to move your hand so far.
- Easy to pack for trips.
If you loathe your laptop’s built-in keyboard, the Mini Quiet Pro is narrow enough to fit in your laptop bag.
It’s really quiet.
Mechanical keyboards offer the best performance, but they’re noisy — too noisy to use in most offices, or around other people. This is the first one that’s quiet. Over two years in the making, it’s the only mechanical keyboard that keeps both your fingers and your co-workers happy.
How quiet is it? The Mini Quiet Pro is no louder than a regular (non-mechanical) keyboard. Your co-workers probably won’t even be able to tell that you have one.
To hear the difference, we made sample recordings of the Mini Quiet Pro plus three other mechanical keyboards — our award-winning Tactile Pro, a Cherry Blue switch keyboard, and a Cherry Brown switch keyboard. Simply click (or tap) to play/pause. Adjust your speaker volume (if necessary).
3 extra USB 2.0 ports.
Some keyboards have 2 USB ports — most have none. We’re giving you three! You can plug in flash drives, digital cameras, your mouse, and more.
Detachable keyboard cable + a spare.
If you plan to take your Mini Quiet Pro with you, we’ve made that easier to do. Keyboard and cable detach from each other, and we provide an extra cable that you can keep stowed in your laptop bag, for use on the road.
Laser etched keys.
All those symbols are handy, but what happens when they wear off? They won’t. They’re laser etched — burned into the keys with a laser — so they’ll never wear off.
The latest trend in keyboards is to have very flat & wide keys, with little or no space between them. You see this a lot on laptops and netbooks. While they look great, they can also be a little tricky to type on. The flatness makes it very easy to slide out of home row and lose your bearings.
The Mini Quiet Pro bucks this trend. It has traditional sculpted keytops, curved to fit your fingertips, and keep you from sliding out of home position.
Audio & media controls.
By holding down the Fn key, you gain access to intuitively positioned controls for Volume, Play / Pause, Next Track, and Previous Track.
Most keyboards allow only a few keys to be pressed at once, so they can’t keep up with very fast typists. The result is called ghosting — letters missing from what you actually typed, or additional letters that you didn’t type.
The Mini Quiet Pro has special Anti-Ghosting Circuitry (also called n-key rollover) to eliminate these problems. You can type as fast as you’re able; the Mini Quiet Pro will keep up.
