Re: Regarding the Cherry G80-2511 and the Kaihl Box switches

People like these things that much? I've been consistently underwhelmed by Cherry boards, they are frighteningly lightly built and the switches aren't much to write home about. It's not like I would do anything destructive like those dickheads who chop the numpad off IBM boards or put RGB lighting ...

Re: Regarding the Cherry G80-2511 and the Kaihl Box switches

To add to what I said earlier, you got the box switches from ebay so it's harder to tell if they've actually been retooled or not, as it's from a rnadom ebay seller not a trusted source (I assume atleast) so my suggestion is to keep the board the way it is and sell off or cancel the order on the box...

No. Do not put fucking box switches into a g80. We've had atleast 3 threads on why this is a bad idea.

Note the realforce bottom row. ive come quite comfortable with it
The left-side numpad and the supranumpad cluster need some work.
Sorry... I added the extra 4 keys to the tip of the numpad at the last second. I refuse to put another key above esc tho. Sorry

Re: WTB Amiga 2000

I think there are other keyboards much more suitable for harvesting switches. People get these for it being a mechanical Amiga keyboard or for harvesting the keycaps, before they think of the switches. I regret that I once bought only the set of keycaps from a forum member instead of the whole keyb...

That's Stockholm Syndrome at it's best. Innovation isn't an excuse for pathetic QC and selling products as "MX compatible" when they are really not is CLEARLY Kailhs fault. It's just shows how little they care about specifications, testing, quality control and actual compatibility. The larger stems...

Thinness is one of the most important factors of laptops. Boomers will disagree and use their heavy chunky laptops on their legs. But I feel like whatever makes a laptop thinner is the right step to go to. I don't enjoy chic keys but if the laptop is light and thin then I don't care about missing so...
