A super keyer  Time owned: more than 12 months
I got my KK 1 about ten years ago. It is an interesting device. You plug an AT computer keyboard into the keyer, and run another keyboard cable to the computer. Then, by pushing Shift + Ctrl at the same time, the keyboard works with either the computer or the keyer.

It has an enormous type ahead memory, and lots of individual message memories.

Problems: The AT keyboards needed a lot more current than current ones, so it may not work with current computers. Also, I had to send mine in for a problem, and it came back updated with a new rom and ram and the features were increased many fold. Alas, the company ceased to function shortly thereafter, so I don't know what it does.They didn't include documentation.

But it's the neatest keyer I've ever seen. I suspect that only a few hundred were made. I will be unhappy when they make further changes in computers so that it won't work at all.
