Re: I'm 99% convinced in buy a topre keyboard, anything I should know before pressing the "buy" button?

I would recommend buying the silenced version when you do decide to buy. In most of the cases I've seen it's not much more, $10 in the case of the FC660C, and the sound is really luscious.

Re: What Are Your IBM Model F Preferences? (XT vs AT vs 122...)

My preference would be the Unsaver! I just got it working tonight. Took way too long for me to get this working but now that I have it together I love it. Now all I need to do is get a solenoid driver board so I can use the peizo buzzer that came with the keyboard. I also plan to make a USB hub wit...

Re: What Are Your IBM Model F Preferences? (XT vs AT vs 122...)

I have never had the opportunity to try an F122, so I can't comment on how well I like that model. But I do own both a Model F XT and a Model F AT. I have to say that I love them both, but I prefer the XT by a slight margin. I like the layout on the AT a little better, and the feel and sound of the...

I have never had the opportunity to try an F122, so I can't comment on how well I like that model. And Kishsavers are absolute unobtanium, unless you're talking about the new reissues that everyone is anxiously waiting for. But I'm not sure that comparing the new reissues with the vintage models wou...
