Re: Datalux Space Saver keyboard review (MEI T-15)

Chyros has another excellent rant about those. All my kids LOVE his rantings about certain keyboards. It's more entertaining than watching some professional shows on TV or in the Cinema these days, due to his unflinching honesty. Something Hollywood, has never known in it's entire lifetime.... or e...

Re: Why are alps keyboards not as popular?

Suspect the OP wanted to know why ALPs switched based keyboards are not popular and have instead lapsed altogether into history, which is extremely unfortunate for those that still worship them.

Already have 12 of them.

From the oldest to the newest releases.

But having an HHKB done with 104 standard ANSI key layout, now that would be worth acquiring for my collection.

Let's face it, you can't go wrong with an HHKB, be it pro1 2 or BT, they are all solid choices.
Only if it could be re-designed for 104 keys, normal-sized instead.

Now that would be something...... :) :D

Re: Modern Beamspring? - The Silo Beam Switch

IMHO The mechanism for the beamspring is sufficiently mechanically different that interchangeability might not be 100% from tactile/linear to clicky. Further to get such a mechanism in such a small shape with good feels, reliability etc etc is hard. Oh not going to ignore buying this, due to NOT ha...

I don't see anywhere you can specify which stock HE switches you want (linear, tactile, or clicky) to come with the keyboard though. That's a bit confusing. That's what keeps people away because THEY never provide details about what you are actually PAYING for. Of course not even saying via print, ...

The 108 keyed model has taken my interest here.

Also your Key-caps seem quite good from the pics provided. Glad that there is no RGB sickness being pursued with this model range, seems some manufacturers decided to ignore this horrid disease of putting disco-lights in everything.
