Re: Great/Interesting Finds

I don't think I would personally classify 500 and 800 as "in the same league." That's a 60% increase.

Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

Starting to seriously consider selling my NIB kb-101a/tk. Though the box has been destroyed, unfortunately. I have a value in mind but I'm pretty sure it's unrealistic.

Yo that 2014 is sick! GLWS, though I don't think you'll need the luck - it's priced well for being ready-to-use!

I've been trying to figure out if it's blue alps for the last like 10 minutes. Makes me so upset when there is no picture of the back label. Not even a pic of the back of the board!!

Re: is it possible to have a custom keyboard for around $200

This pre-built tofu comes close: https://kbdfans.com/products/fully-asse ... 0-keyboard

If you add switches it is around $200. You can get some cheap taihao caps to throw on there.

Re: How did you found your internet nickname?

The original final fantasy VII changed my life - I would not be who I am today without that video game helping me when I was younger. Every online name I've ever used has stemmed from that game.

I recommend an omnikey 101 - or any model omnikey, really. The ANSI one is nice though!

Re: Deleted

It’s true most people who’ve been “around the block,” as it were, definitely ask the seller about switches on eBay, but a lot of new people in the hobby won’t have a prior bad experience from which to think that asking the seller is that important. By replacing the switches in the 5140 you’ve altere...

I think the timeline you've laid out is mostly accurate - but I think the comments you've quoted are the consequence of being somewhat overbearing as well as seemingly being into this hobby for exploitive reasons; it's a direct result of those "bunch" of posts you've referenced. There are some other...

Prices aside, what’s more telling of character is the way you conduct yourself in the face of disagreement. You gotta understand that these off-the-wall remarks you are making are to potential buyers - and worse, is part of a small sample size of comments on this website for which serve as the basis...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

not much to gamble. Should be blue alps. Great price too. Blue Alps models, don't have STAFF in the model name. Is that exclusive to the k2AX? I was able to find one picture of a counter example, but it's a K101 board. I think e3e has a k9AX with STAFF in the name as well, but i'm not sure. https:/...
