[Photos] Goodies from China

Laser wrote:@Mr.Nobody - don't know if anybode else already said it, but - nice offer! :)

I'd be interested in some cheap (i.e. under 50$ total) Unitek keyboard, ANSI layout, with non-yellowed keys ... is there something like this? Actually I'm only interested in the keycaps (cherry mx, not doubleshots, but lasered) - I like them because they are thick, sharp and they make a nice sound.

Thank you, by "50$ total" you mean including shipping overseas? I will keep an eye on unitek keyboards for you.

Here is what I got yesterday ,this one is NOT FOR SALE of course. A beige unicomp 122 with win key and blue sublegends,ps2 cable, as a diehard Buckling Spring fan boy, this is what I have been coveting for quite a while, the seller just listed and I believe if I were 3 minutes slower, it'd be somebodyelse's...it's just a little dirty, a can of compressed air will solve the problem.
Sorry for the crappy mobilephone shots, I will take better photos after I clean it up.

That Focus like keyboard looks to be a clone. They cloned the case style off Focus and used clone MX Blacks!

38 appears to might be a Key Tronic keyboard, probably F&F switches though. 41 might be USw_LXBB01 or some variant of it. 46 seems to have Futaba clicky switches.

since this is going overboard, I'm asking... Mr.Nobody offered to sell stuff without releasing any other info apart from pictures. Should this simply go under "marketplace"?

no offence Mr.Nobody, you are doing a great service, but I believe it would help with the mess. Otherwise post the source and everybody's happy.

also, let's keep "ass licking" for your private life.

Perhaps it is worth reminding you of what you wrote here just a few days ago about what would happen if a Chinese company was insulted in a Chinese online community:
Mr.Nobody wrote:It might be screened out automatically due to keywords cencoring, otherwise your comment might be deleted buy moderator manually for fear of inducing unneccessary trouble to the site.

Are your insults not "inducing unneccessary trouble to the site"?
Or does it just not matter to you because we enjoy free speech here - even for apologetists of censorship?

:lol: @matto

I won't object moving this thread anywhere, but it's not accurate to say I am selling anything, the items in pictures are not mine, how could anybody sell anything he dosen't own. This is more like a Chinese version of "Identify the keyboards + Great/interesting finds" Anybody needs any link about any item,just PM me I won't withhold anything, but I won't post links unnecessarily under every photo to increase my hardship and waste my time, as you can see, 95% of the viewers are not interested in 95% of the items posted here...

@KBDFR
Don't attempt to entice me to turn this thread into another political debate? :lol:

#42 Futaba complicated linear
#44 No, it's not a Focus, looks much more like the Tai-Hao or SKB.
#45 KT F&F
#46 Futaba clicky switch
#48 Siemens STB-11, gorgeous board btw

Indeed, with the idea of only shipping the keycaps - if the entire keyboard would be worthy, then - maybe more than 50$ (but not too much :D ). Thanks.

This one is Cherry mount, but some of the legends are weared off. Most Unitek keyboards are Alps mount...btw you are the first person I know who seeks specifically for laser-engraved keycaps. You are welcome!

(about lasered keys)

Yes I know - I am not a fan of lasered keycaps in general, but some Unitek's have keycaps that are thick and sharp (as in sharp edges) and actually feel & sound good when typing. Something like this pic (from a seller on mechmarket): http://i.imgur.com/bjpQcCK.jpg

How about come to China Chyros,we have plenty keyboards here for you to review,and you can make a million annually with your PhD. in Chemistry seriously.

A friend of mine (from Ireland) is actually moving to China this year. Not for Chemistry, but computer software. Quite uncommon but it sounds like it will be very interesting for him!

Have you ever tried Leopold's PBT Cherry MX mount caps? I have a white set that's front printed (pad printed, but I don't care because my fingers never touch the front of the caps anyway) and very square, sharp edges.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/PBT-Keycap-Set-f...SwRLZT4TFY

I've used them on both a Cherry MX Blue keyboard and they are now the standard caps on my CM Novatouch cause they sound even better on Topre...certainly a hell of a lot better than the stock ultra-thin abs caps that come with the Novatouch.

Yes! I have a blue-navy set and it's great :) And yes the Unitek (Dah Yang) keycaps I'm searching for have the same shape (but are made from ABS). It's probably just a whim I have - one of my first keyboards had these type of keys and they felt and sounded awesome - probably I just try to re-create the feeling :)

That one has something that looks like a dome with slider system I saw at some point, but I'm not very sure about that one.
