The Amiga was a great machine, I had a 500+ and then an A1200 with a (wait for it) twenty meg hard drive - that was unheard of in those days. though I don't recall much about the keyboards themselves. It struck me that the C64 case was a great shape, and would do really good as a nice input device. ...

Has anyone ever...?

This video is slightly off topic but do bear with me and have a look then please continue. 0wDtxYeJdzg I never had a C64... Spectrum 48k all the way here and I don't think there's too many of us on this forum who'd love that particular keyboard. And the Amiga, which was my best ever computing experi...

Coolermaster Masterkeys Pro L

So I thought I'd write a preliminary review of my new keyboard since that's what a large part of this site's about. The first thing I noticed was the weight. This is significantly heavier than any other keyboard I've owned, and it feels solid, quality. Despite that, for a 100% keyboard (105 keys I b...

one of the things I liked about this one is that it's backlit - I often game in a dimly lit room so I enjoy the immersion within the game - but on my other keyboards seeing the keys has often been... challenging. This works really well at that purpose. Apparently you can programme profiles depending...

Interesting response. Encourage a novice to provide in depth encyclopaedic knowledge. I think you have a cunning plan! Same mistake everyone seems to make: to believe that they have nothing to contribute. And there it sits. Don't think of it as a mistake, think of it as a lack of knowledge. Which, ...

Oddly it was watching Thomas' videos that got me to consider it's something I could get into. I have to say I'm very pleased with this keyboard. Not too flashy and showy but interesting and useful I think. Especially if I can get the lighting to work to be a functional tool, but yes I can already se...

I've considered this question. I'm very new to the whole "keyboard love" thing (that sounded much better in my head than in print, to be fair) but having thought about it lots, the burning question is "where the hell do I start?" :lol: I guess I've used keyboards as a functional necessity until very...

Hello

Hello good people. I've just joined here - interesting place. I've found myself suddenly (and somewhat unexpectedly) captivated by the concept of keyboard modding and doing interesting, clever and weird things with them... and I found this place in a search so... here I am. I've been building my own...
