Since I never had the chance to try the space invaders, I'd say the Unknown best fits the description :-)
Also, being able to simply connect it to a PS2 port is a huge benefit as I have no idea how to convert the other ones.

I meant huge. As in lots of planks fused together.
Or it could be a cutting board and a set of knives.

It's similar but not the same thing. Chyros never reviewed the XMIT Hall effect board but he did film a review of a board very similar to XMIT round 1. That keyboard was produced by the same Chinese company that XMIT used to outsource production, so in effect, it's a XMIT round 1 keyboard without al...

Need help from a Parisian

Hi,
is there anyone from Paris willing to do a local pickup (not a keyboard but a small Hi-Fi amplifier) and help with sending the stuff to Croatia? I will, of course, send the money in advance so you don't have to risk anything buying the thing.

[Help needed] Interesting typewriter models

After much talk and ebay listing spamming on DT Telegram channel ( https://t.me/deskthority ), we decided it would be very useful to pool all the little bits of knowledge from everyone's heads into a single thread, later to be transferred to a wiki page. The idea is to have a single resource listing...

Here is what I would consider a great finished thi...
