[Photos] Devlin Pennine POS keyboard

Some months ago, we made a mini group-buy with two other DT members and bought three keyboards like that from a UK recycler.

It has Cherry MX Brown switches and nice thick Devlin double-shot keycaps.

I can't find any info about that little POS board on the web, so here are some pictures. Sadly, I've no idea what is the model number.

Very interesting key profile. Does it feel like a dsa or cherry key or a mix of them?

Yeah, more like a mix of them. It has a profile very similar to DSA but a texture much more like double-shot Cherry caps.

Yeah I'd love having some ISO Enter in this profile to match SP's DSA sets !

Very nice looking board, but ABCDE layout... Meeh :lol: . It reminds me of the train ticket automaton, it just takes me ages to type the station names with alphabetical layouts lolilol.

Nice pictures :) . I didn't know Devlin used Cherry switches. Cool keycaps too, look like they're very high quality!

Their build quality is pretty good. I just wish they made their keyboards programmable...

Cool board - for the two-space keys, do they have dual switches or stabs? Also, does it look like the rows and columns are broken out directly to the header that connects to the daughter board?

Stabs, and yes, if I remember correctly every trace is going to the header directly, which is pretty awesome.
