Mine are pad printed ABS, but i do know that some models had double injected key-caps.

Also some of these same models also had Alps clones used, so be aware if you choose to purchase it that it might miss out on being Complicated White Alps (like mine).

These companies went all cheap and vary in between switches and key-caps that were used. Just the way they operated in a market where keyboard standards started to plummet into the depths of garbage and uselessness.

NIB G81-8904HPBRB

good for the keycap set. MY switches unusable. can expand on this keyboard and the information if needed. ABS DS for english and Pad Printed Red cyrillic that has been proved by cherry employees to last 10+ years of daily use.

not sure the market or interest for these.

I'd say maybe 200 to 250usd, considering there is a big cache of SAV available and multiple easily available GMK keyset with such pad prints, I'd guess only a collector would be interested and not at a too high price. Though I maybe be wrong.

thank you, i heard a similar number from a friend. quite sad to me as things were different a few years ago haha.

i suppose for a collector that is value because of the back label and it's a POS Russian NIB Board. but that would only apply to those in that niche catagory.

A GH80-3000 PCB might work in there for the keyboard at least. Don't know if the card reader is built into the main PCB or not.

30-40$ or less outside ebay. Usually people harvest the switches and caps from the AEK, here only the switches would be sought after.

One or two other NIB ones were sold recently for much more than that, around $400-500 IIRC.

Yes. Shuangmu also had one for sale. But you are right, I'm not sure they actually sold, I just supposed it based on the fact that they stopped advertising them, and that might be completely wrong.

How much would a Japanese AEK go for these days? I remember selling my NIB JP version for $100 a few years ago but it seems AEKs have gotten more expensive for some reason.

last ANSI AEK NIB I bought was for 170$, I would probably pay 200$ and over for a NIB Japanese one.

Hi :)

I have a cool set of doubleshot Keycaps I had totally forgotten about. I think they're quite awesome and of high quality.

I took them off an old Chicony keyboard (with German layout). If I remember correctly, the board had MY-switches, and that is why I ended up giving it away to someone who wanted to have it.

I love the F-keys, they are super tall and give the keyboard a unique look. I took a few pictures, they're in the album below. Also, the space key is huuuuge!

I'm thinking about maybe selling the caps, because I don't really need them. What do you guys recon I might ask for them?
