Re: i-rocks K76M Fun review (i-rocks clicky)

Just noticed you've used this already but I had a White one, from two years ago that I never used much. The LEGO surrounding was the turn off for me simply because I have never liked that awful toy and what it stands for. Sometimes if a company wanted to sell something, don't include irrelevant desi...

Re: Steelseries Apex Pro review (OmniPoint Hall effect)

I purchased an Apex Pro keyboard because I was curious about it. I have never before used a hall effect keyboard or a linear switch keyboard. Was going to but completely forgot about it due to the current Xmas spending on pallets of booze and food. Still having a yearly celebration despite this Cov...

Re: Chyros's Holy Panda switches review

Wondering how they compare to Zaelios v2s. Do they feel simular? Have both the Holy Panda's from DROP (regrettable) and the Zealios V2 'Silent Tactiles'.

Re: Unicomp SSK delayed, new Model M design coming

Why they're using a proprietary firmware is beyond me. Because they have already used it before hence no money to spend on anything else.

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?
