Re: Great/Interesting Finds

What's so funny? Scams are serious business. That's why I warned everyone that it was a scam :| If you think that buying a REAL keyboard today, on Flebay gets you that item, then you've been smoking too much whacky tabacky ;) . Far better to buy from here within the DT forums, than waste your time ...

You think the legends are what makes Razer awful? Ha!
Legends, Keys, Stabs, cheapo casing, junk supplied software called SYNAPSE :cry: .

Yeah, if you actually think Razer Corp(se) is worth the money in owning and using them, then why are you here on DT?

Re: Razer BlackWidow + Razer Green review

"Ugliest Legends even Uglier"

That quote alone is worth remembering for every single Razer keyboard, that was ever made.

Thank you for once again, showing what an awful Company this truly is. Kudos for this.

From unicomp's facebook:
We are frustratingly close but, under duress, marking time right now. I can assure you no one wants to ship this product more than us!
Maybe keep it, until 2021.

Hoping next year will be better, going by my own 'delusions' here ;) .

Re: [WTB] XMIT - Massdrop Hall Effect keyboard

Re: Unicomp Ultra Classic dropping rivets too quickly...

Anyway, going back to the topic, unicomp engineers don't want to fix a flaw discovered 30 years ago. That's laziness. It's probably an indicator of a state of mind that involves other products too?

I don't own a Unicomp, but yes, Unicomps are of a lower quality. Hence why they sell so cheap, even during 2020.

Perhaps the SEXIEST Alps based keyboard, that was ever made. Would still choose that over any other keyboard made today, if I was ever that fortunate in having a choice at all. Although that off-white coloured space bar, would OCD me to death. Would most probably spray it with a plastic paint coatin...
