The G-Lab Keyz#Meca + Jixian Blue review

I take a look at a cheapo keyboard with a switch not often talked about...probably because they're terrible, especially in sound.

Re: Alps Appreciation

About a month ago, I posted this teasing to do an Alps build. Well, here's that. It's also my first ever keyboard build, so I made a few mistakes (i.e. crooked switches as seen + mismatched keycaps). Still satisfied with though. Alps switches are bloody awesome!

Re: Alps Appreciation

This beauty just arrived today! It's going to be a while for another keyboard to top this.

It's not a complete board; just a plate with the switches and keycaps, so it doesn't work. But hell, I love Alps now...I'm itching do an Alps build soon haha

The switches are supposed to be 'dampened', but they're still quite loud imo (and some click on the upstroke, don't know why). I can always watch a resto guide though :D

Re: Gateron Brown switch review

Oh yes, absolutely! It’s a straight upgrade from the MX Brown. And it’s also cheaper.

I don’t understand why Gateron switches aren’t readily available in budget mechs; all I see is Outemu or Kailh, but not Gateron.

The only company I remember using the Gateron switch is Cooler Master.

Honestly, I think it’s an underrated switch. The Cherry MX Silent Red is the one that gets all the attention for some reason.

Re: Cherry MX Silent Red switch review

One problem with silent reds—which I otherwise quite like—is their extra creaky springs. MX does have a creak to it, but silent reds seem to really bring it out. My silent red Filco is anything but silent on many keys! We discussed it recently here . I experienced this for the first 3-4 days which ...

Re: When did you first start appreciating keyboards?

I hate to admit it, but it wasn’t until recently…I’d say around 2015, when I was introduced to “mechanical keyboards”. Up to that point, I was using a crappy dell rubber dome keyboard with some the legends starting to fade. It took some hard self-convincing, but I saved up to purchase my first mech ...

Re: How do you fix a broken stabilizer on a vintage keyboard?

I managed to "fix" it by using duct tape with a piece of small plastic from another keyboard. It doesn't feel as nice as the other keys, but at least it's stabilized...somewhat.

That looks bad! Try and paste it with some adhesive and see if that works, Otherwise, I don't see any fix to this.
I tried to tape it using double sided tape, didn't quite work as well as I thought. I can try duct tape actually.

I would recommend to stick with some glue. Should be an easy fix as you have the broken piece still partly attached.
I lost the piece shortly after, looks like that's it for me.

How do you fix a broken stabilizer on a vintage keyboard? [SOLVED]

The little plastic nub that holds the stabilizer has broken off. It happened when I removed the keycap.

What are your methods to fixing this?

The keyboard just arrived an hour ago and I've already broken it :(

Back of the keyboard says "IBM" on the model, but it doesn't look like a Model M or Model F that I've seen.

Re: [Interest Check] 75%Keyboard:Cyberboard(With Color Option form)

The 75% layout is my favorite layout, but this honestly just seems absurd. In terms of styling that is. I'd be more inclined to purchasing this if it had a more "normal" styling. I know it's all for a "crazy" look, but if you guys have a more standard look in the works, I'd be interested.
