[Photos] Alps LCM30 keyboard, Toshiba branded

Scored a Toshiba branded Alps Bigfoot keyboard.
Note: it has windowskeys, a rather strange bottomrow and a industrial grey case.
Keycaps are lasered ABS (but the feel rough like PBT and are nice to type on, not that thin)

*edit: It is a LCM30 keyboard not a bigfoot.

Nice find! I've always liked the look of these, perhaps more so than the Bigfoot.

Funny how that spacebar is stabilized though, I don't think I've seen anything like that from Alps.

Ah ok, I already asked me why the case is different to my other "Bigfoot" finds (Dell old Logo).

I watched your video, the double lasered caps are really strange.

They're probably the worst caps I've seen in my life xD .

I think they are kinda nice, the lasered legends are not my favorite, but I think with single lasered legends they are ok. First I thought the keycaps are PBT, the surface (rough) and look is exactly like my lasered cherry PBT keycaps.
