Re: De-Lurk Yourself

This post (or something similar) should be on the front page, or somehow pinned in the Spy or Board, so that it would always be visible when one visits the forum to encourage people to de-lurk ;) Great idea :)

Cherry G80-3000 HGD

Decided to create this post in order to have a reference for the Cherry database and to check if anyone might know anything about this particular boards article number. This board originated from one of Wodans recycler hauls, and he was kind enough to sell it to me as my first Cherry board, so a tha...

Thanks for making this GB happen and for all the work you've put into to it :) I'm in for a BoW kit myself and I'm really looking forward to it. Hopefully BoW reaches MOQ :)

Re: Realforce R2 PFU Limited Edition

Inspired by this review of the factory silenced R2 I decided to pull the plug on a silenced Realforce. I however finally landed on the 87UW(S?) or "Low noise" version. Mainly because I personally like the old case design more, but I was also curious about the variable weighting. I must say I was ver...

Re: Recommendation (Tactile switches board)

Are there custom keycaps for the Realforce 87U that you'd recommed? Readily available custom aftermarket keysets and keyset for Topre in general are unfortunately kinda scarce. The only one I can think of is the Kbdfans 9009 set. Don't know anything about the quality of the set though. I use 88U 45...

Any particular Keytronic boards you guys could recommend? The ErgoForce really stood out for me. All their other RD boards that I tried were very mediocre. It is the best one to buy.

I have a Compaq board with NMB dome with slider and the keyfeel is quite solid imo with decent tactility and weighting. The board itself is quite hefty and sturdy for a rubber dome board. I use it at work from time to time. As a daily driver I use a 88U with 45g switches and it is the perfect switch...
