Nearly all keyboards will have exactly the same issue.

IME, it's only keyboards which are specifically marketed for gaming
which have a diode for each key. For gaming, it's common for keys to
be held rather than pressed momentarily. Coupled with a desire to
allow the key assignments to be customised, this makes phantom keys
far more of an issue than for normal use (i.e. typing).
