IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Not quite what I meant, ancient Greek is different enough from modern Greek that they are still distinct. Similarly, a modern English speaker will almost certainly have problems translating an olde English text.

Se wisa wer timbrode his hus ofer stan.
Þa com þær micel flod, and þær bleowon windas, and ahruron on þæt hus, and hit ne feoll: soþlice, hit wæs ofer stan getimbrod.

Þa timbrode se dysiga wer his hus ofer sandceosol. Þa rinde hit, and þær com flod, and bleowon windas, and ahruron on þæt hus, and þæt hus feoll; and his hryre wæs micel.

Hello everyone could you help me identify these keyboards? Someone is selling them in auction for super cheap. So I wanted to know if it's worth bidding. Thank you

Okay he sent me photos of the keyboards from behind. I think the Lite-On SK-0002 is mechanical with white alps. I don't know about the others though.

Hey.

- Stay away from Compaq boards unless it's the Cherry-made server board with the integrated trackball at the bottom right, which has yummy vintage MX brown switches.
- That particular Qtronix seems to be a rubber dome, as indicated by the 'R' after the model number.
- One is this: https://deskthority.net/wiki/Tai-Hao_APC_semi-mechanical_keyboard.
- This should be the only one worth getting: https://deskthority.net/wiki/Lite-On_SK-0002

Cheers

Hello everyone I have a question. Is this a real deal model F? It's selling for 10$ but it's missing the IBM logo so I want to know if it is really it. Thank you

Looks like it could be an SMK 2nd Gen (Monterey blue), hard to tell because the color balance. You could try to take a pic in the sunlight with a white postcard next to it. Use the postcard to balance the white levels. Maybe pull off a few more keycaps while your at it.

Is it an MCK-101 though? I have only seen those with 3 indicator lights, while this has 4

If it's not that it's a clone; I've seen boards like it with 4 lock lights that even have the same shortcut cards and everything.

@Mike; no way they're Montereys, the whole shape of the switch is off.

Lucent was a division of AT&T. They used comcodes (the cc number on the label). If you want to know what it is used for you can do a web search for the comcode, or if that fails I can give u an email for an old AT&T dealer friend in TX.

Thanks for the information. I don't have the keyboards yet, my brother lives in another town so he has to mail them to me.
I'll check for those codes as soon as I get them.

I believe these have rubberdomes like these, which are confirmed to be rubberdome. It appears to be older, so it might have Siemens STB 21 instead.
