Re: Stuff you just bought

I got a Cherry G80-3000HFD from the chunk box, serial 043893 - is it 1993? It is my first MX-blue board. As I have some clones, razer green and outemu blue, this is really different from what I expected. The keyfeel and sound is completely different and rather reminds me on the ALPS SKCM orange or w...

Who still uses it as daily driver? Why/why not? I would but as my sleep schedule is rather erratic thanks to chronic insomnia and a lifetime of that "I have an awesome idea that I must act on immediately!" at 2am... well yeah, it keeps my gf awake and she gets grumpy about that, curiously enough.

Re: romer g, cherr mx or razer switches?

I have got a Razer Tournament 2014 and an Ultimate 2014. Their switches (yes - both green) feel totally different. On the Ultimate (Kailh?) they are very smooth and need a lot more actuation force. Some of them remind me on my vintage MX blacks somehow, just with a click. Very inconsistent all over ...

Like this Emiralite banker's lamp? That's just fine to put on the desk when you mother in law is visiting, or when you want to sell your house.

Model M appreciation

Mother of all recent keyboards, you are just perfect as you are. All the others will be judged by your standards, and modifying you will be seen as sacrilege. Is this the reason for (subjectively felt) thin reception on DT? Or is it, because if you once start, you will look for even fancier stuff (l...

Re: Shall we have a DTA 2019?

Re: Tell me about your experience with dome boards

I started off all my searching for the perfect board - which finally made me landing here - with an old keytronic rubberdome (do not know the model). The problem was the right shift key stopping dead when pressed off-center (as I always do with this key). After one year of experience, I did the whol...

Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

I have mine for all day use (orange switches). I prefer the keyfeel to anything new on the market at the moment. It can easily be converted to USB with an eg. pro micro and the layout has only minor drawbacks. If I was looking for a decent board for typing and I only can choose between a new - let's...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Which system does this derive from? Cable is missing. I can only post the pics, please just imagine how it smells.. and for the keyfeel: worth to post it in the ugliest keyboard thread. Thank you!
