Why it is called Periboard 106 "M"

Why it is called Periboard 106 "M"

If you pay attention on Perixx's products, it is not difficult to spot that the letter(s) following the model name refers to its colour. For example, Periboard-612W the "W" means white, Periboard-713PK the "PK" means pink.

Then, what does the "M" mean in Periboard-106M?


At the very beginning, I don't know either. Therefore, I went to ask my big boss, Jonah, the founder of Perixx. And he threw me back to 1980s.

"Do you know Model-M?"

Obviously, I don't. I shook my head.

"Then, you search IBM and Model-M."

OOOOh, now I get it. I nodded my head.

Step back into the golden era of keyboards, and you'll undoubtedly encounter the iconic IBM Model M. A true legend among mechanical keyboards, the Model M made its mark during the tech-savvy 80s and 90s, becoming a staple that no enthusiast could overlook.

What sets the IBM Model M apart is its timeless combination of durability and design. The keyboard boasts the coveted buckling spring key switches, delivering a tactile sensation and that satisfying audible click with each keystroke. 

The distinctive sound and feel of the Model M are like a trip down memory lane for many users. Crafted with a robust build and a steel plate inside, this keyboard stands the test of time. 


While the original Model M is no longer in production, fear not, for Perixx has stepped up to the plate with a modern-day homage – "Periboard-106M." This contemporary rendition not only pays tribute to the classic but ensure the spirit of the Model M living on in a keyboard that embraces both the past and the present.
