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

Is Focus FK-8000 (w/ some Alps clones) in a rough shape worth any attention?

I imagine the only attraction is the calculator, if someone can make it work, but I could be wrong.

Re: [WTB] Thick DCS WYSE keycaps

FYI some Silitek rubber domes (models with 4100 or 8801 in the codename) had early DCS keycaps.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

I'm not sure if I have the exact same model, but mine are sort of low-profile spring over membrane, very quiet, with the PBT keycaps having an interesting texture and blurry dyesub legends.

Worn blacks vint blacks are ridiculously smooth though
If wear was the deciding factor, commonly used keys would feel significantly different from rarely used keys.

I haven't noticed that, and my finest keyboards have been in pristine condition.

the only reason that vintage blacks are so highly praised is because they are vintage, and have been used a lot.
That doesn't explain new-old-stock keyboards.

I should have quite a few sets from Chicony and other OEM keyboards. Some could be doubleshots. Probably big-ass Enter, though.

his ad said something like, "Looks like white Alps, but can't confirm," which, of course, is code for, "They're not Alps switches."
The opposite happened to me twice. It was green and blue Alps respectively. They were just dirty.

As a heads up, I had one of these and it was surprisingly well-made despite looking similar to the flimsy Chicony KB-5191 on the outside.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

I have swapped APC/Tai-Hao leaves (from older models though) into Alps SKCM Black and it improved the tactility quite a bit. The keyboards had okay doubleshot keycaps as well, but that's about it.

Re: GameBall allegedly finishes its gaming trackball for launch in Q1 2020

I can live without a wheel (or equivalent), but at least three buttons are a must.

I'm not too fond of proprietary wireless devices either.

Re: GameBall allegedly finishes its gaming trackball for launch in Q1 2020

I would love a modern, more portable ambidextrous trackball.

No way will I take my L-Trac or Slimblade out to use with a convertible.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Does anyone know anything about the cheap point-of-sale keyboards on AliExpress?

For example, this one is 13×6 grid for ca. $40.

The switches are MX-mount, actuation at 2±0.6 mm and 60±20 cN, rated for 12M cycles.

One of the fancier Dell keyboards had a very similar cross-like kind of stem.
