The Chicony KB-2961 is a rubber dome keyboard from Chicony.


The keyboard is very common, with many different configurations available. One model may come with an AT connector, whereas another model may come with a USB connector. The keyboard is available in three known color configurations: full black, full white, and partial white with grey modifiers. It features a big-ass Enter key and single-unit backspace.

Many of the lighter models use lasered ABS keycaps. The darker models most likely use pad printed ABS keycaps, though this has yet to be confirmed.

It is notorious for being mistaken as a mechanical keyboard. While Chicony did manufacture mechanical keyboards, they also made quite a few rubber dome keyboards, and the KB-2961 is no exception. There are currently no known examples of the Chicony KB-2961 that use mechanical key switches. The keyboard uses pressure domes over a membrane.
