Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

PS: It is a Solidtek ACK-700, but I still don't know if it is rubberdome or not :( based on the number of screws on the back and the fact that the keyboard case doesn't look that deep (except the top where the controller, cable gutter and legs are located) it is most certain a rubber dome The more ...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

The above requested keyboard is from "Inputronic" or "Solid Year". I have never heard of them and seems to have an AT-connector. But I am totally unsure if it is rubberdome or not.

The plan is, that maybe after some time she will probably tell me, which switch she likes most. Unfortunately, the plan does not seem...

€30 for an ANSI Model M that just needs some key caps sounds pretty reasonable to me.
I thought so as well, but only one potential buyer, who did not pull the trigger although I suggested to split shipping costs of 16 Euros.

Yes, Sir ;)
