I’m a fan of mechanical keyboards – but a frustrated fan, because to date I have not found one in an ergonomic shape I can use. That’s why I’m excited about Matias, the Canadian keyboard maker that will soon be releasing its sure-to-be-amazing Ergo Pro. Alas, when I contacted the company, I was told that samples are not yet available. In the interim, they recommended that I review one of their “standard” models. Having famously low resistance to trying new devices, I agreed.
Matias, the mechanical keyboard company
In its press releases, Matias claims that it is “emerging as the #3 keyboard manufacturer,” behind Microsoft and Logitech. Its main claim to fame is the Tactile Pro, which is designed to feel very much like a certain vintage Apple device. Then there’s the Quiet Pro, which is basically the same thing without the racket. Given my choice of review units by the company, I picked the miniature version of the latter – the Mini Quiet Pro. With a small footprint, low noise level, and of course easy-on-the-hands mechanical action, I figured the Mini Quiet Pro would give me plenty to write about.
