Re: NMB RT101+

VERY nice pictures.

Those outer steppings on Enter (even if BAE), RShift and RCtrl would have been a boon, if they still existed, on compact layouts (65% and 75%).

Re: Micro Switch 53RW4-1 keyboard review (MS magnetic reed)

Besides making a cool case/stand for this keyboard... do ALL the PCB traces actually backtrace to a key that is present? How many more switches (assuming they can be procured) could be fitted into chyros' drop-in module? There is certainly enough unused space... but could it be filled in?

Re: Micro Switch 53RW4-1 keyboard review (MS magnetic reed)

Couple comments on the video: 1) The layout, alien as it is to modern eyes, is clearly for a "Data Entry" keyboard. There's plenty of later keyboards with the same layout for the alphas (even IBM Unsavers). 2) I would submit that the first "truly widely adopted keyboard standard" isn't the XT layout...

an ortho board with only 12u is still pretty workable so 14 should be a piece of cake

Re: Unicomp - New Model M review

Unicomp's current design is the most economical compromise for people who really need 2 windows keys (unsure exactly what you would need 2 for but its there for folks that need it ig) and with a spacebar swap can be switched to 1.5-1-1.5-7-1.5-1-1.5, which is the best 15u bottom row anyway.
