Re: Keyboards banned from work

We still had two people in our office using some sort of IBM terminal keyboards 20 years ago, and man were they loud. I could hear one of them clear as day halfway across the office. Our office has been remodeled twice since then, and we keep getting squished closer and closer together. I never had ...

Re: Topre Type Heaven - Second-owner cleaning, rebuild, (postmortem?) guide

Yeah, the Type Heaven is a different keyboard than the regular Realforces, and comes apart slightly differently. I have both, and I think that the Type Heaven is a more solid keyboard, but the perfectly smooth black finish is more delicate than a Realforce's textured plastic. I've taken the keycaps ...

Re: What are Topre Switches Like?

There really isn't anything quite like them, but I agree with others that they're closer to a really refined rubber dome keyboard than any kind of Cherry MX switch. I'd almost describe them as boring, but they're extremely pleasant to type on. Cherry MX switches feel pretty rough and unrefined in co...

Re: EnjoyPBT Keycaps?

I've had a couple of EnjoyPBT keycap sets, and they've all been fine. The spacebar is the only thing that's ever been an issue for me on any of the PBT keycap sets I've had, and even then, warpage is usually minimal. The worst one I had was from a Tai Hao set, but the seller exchanged it quickly. I'...

Re: Tried ALPS for the first time

My dad bought a Macintosh SE/30 back in 1989 with the Extended Keyboard II. That was our keyboard through several different Macs in the '90s, and I still have it, along with another AEKII, and a regular Apple Keyboard with orange or salmon Alps switches that I picked up at a computer surplus store y...

Re: Realforce 87u discontinued?

Looking at their website, it sure looks like they used 87U as a model number for the old R1 version. The 87U and the 87UB are all the way at the bottom. The new one is called the R2TL, with a bunch of other letters and numbers after that to denote other features. http://www.realforce.co.jp/en/produc...
