I disagree.  I prefer the 5c and 6 to the type 5.  To me, the type 5
feels mushy.  Solidly constructed, yes, but i don't like the key
action.  (this may just be that all of my sun keyboards were bought
used, and type 5's are just old and worn.)

That said, after getting used to my Kinesis contoured keyboard, there is
no other keyboard that i ever want to use full time.  It was worth every
penny, even if i had paid retail. (which I didn't, got mine on ebay for
$125, iirc)  I thought they had sun adaptors, but i don't see them on
their website right now...
