Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

I wasn't sure what i'd think of the MDA profile, but I figured since the "big bone" set had a 5.5u spacebar that fits the NIZ 84 keyboard, I figured I'd give the profile a shot. niz84mdabigbone.jpg The MDA caps are about the same height as enjoyPBT caps. I like the flat sculpted profile, but some k...

Re: Round 5 and Round 6 kits for sale!

When I collected funds for Round4 in 2012, I recall people were asking for refunds when they had supposedly already received them. I'm wonder if anyone made a profit off their multiple refunds? I don't know if this makes any difference, but when I was collecting, I'm pretty sure I never sent any mon...

Hmm, 18 kits sold for the M+ kit (6 for DE, 5 for Icon), with 24 days to go. It blows my my mind that just a few years ago we had to scour ebay and taobao for Cherry doubleshots or dyesubs, but now there are group buys for all sorts of custom keysets.

REALFORCE R2 "PFU Limited Edition" impressions thread

So, resale value isn't a concern anymore? I'd think the latest and greatest switches pre-installed in a board would get somebody to open their wallets rather quickly? Ah, well. I wonder if these "New Giant" switches you've ordered are just more renamed Gaterons?

Hell, pick the switch you want to try out? Once you've had your fill, then sell it. Since you already know you don't want the boards, you can put in switch types you wouldn't normally type on. I meant to to that with a board I put together with Cherry Blues, being a linear switch fan, but ended up k...

Now, Kinesis has revamped things by adding mechanical switches, and doing a kickstarter. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/294674098/freestyle-edge-the-ultimate-split-gaming-keyboard 5e6e068da1e27ac152d5ed3e0adb06...
