Re: Unidentified POS keyboard restoration and retrobrighting

Great job bring this back to life! Hopefully you can use a converter and get some more functionality out of this POS terminal board. I've bought DIN to ps/2 and ps/2 to usb converters, all seems to be working fine. The trouble is the software I need to program it. You might want to pickup a teensy ...

Re: my opinion on Apple Wireless keyboard

FEM is heavy computing load that makes both the CPU and GPU stressed, as well as the ram and the hard drive, we know it, but for a 2500 euro laptop claimed to be "top gun" you won't for sure expect a shitty cooling system under the hood. unfortunately it's a problem with many new apple PCs. the new...

Could anyone indentify the switch in the photo? I do not have the keyboard, but I'm considering purchasing it. To me it looks like dome with a slider type, but I can't identify which it is.

Thanks!
Can confirm NMB dome with sliders.

On a side note I just got done putting red 40A-L o-rings in my Ducky One with MX Clears for work. It did quiet it down a little, but not by as much as I had expected. It also made the already somewhat mushy MX Clears feel even mushier to me. I really crave harsh mechanical clacks in my typing. Can'...

I love the non-green SKCL switches, they’re among the rarest Alps finds.
How does these creams compare to the greens? Heavier? Lighter?

Congrats!

I would have to say that they are on the heavier side of greens but not by much. Something around 5-10g heavier.

Blue Alps are not hard to find. They're just expensive. The Dell AT101 has come down in price SIGNIFICANTLY after the big inflation of two years ago as well. Blue Alps will also go down at some point, I think. That's what I love to hear! :D Brown Alps have recently dropped in price as well. Prices ...

Re: Switches with quiet upstroke ?

The only downside to Cherry Silent Reds, as I've discovered on a number of boards I have with them, is that by eliminating nearly all the bottom-out and upstroke noise, the shuff-shuff-shuff sound of slider friction suddenly becomes very apparent. I'm sure a lot of folks don't mind that sound, but ...
