    Looks like a 1990s cash register

    $185 isn't that bad actually. Those keycaps are not easy to manufacture (although they are laser engraved vs. doubleshot).

    Dedicated function keys and they still feel the need to retain the Fn key together with the messed up placement? Sure it's the traditional IBM layout, but I never liked it.

    Nice if you like that sort of thing.
    Not my bag, but credit to them for trying... Hope it fills a gap in a market somewhere.

    For a niche mech keyboard it's hardly the craziest, but that's still a lot of money. Unfortunately there's not a lot of devices with the same functionality. Logitech K400 or Rii Mini-keyboard are 10x cheaper but are nothing like a nice mechanical keyboard. I hope we'll see more decent media keyboards soon.
