Re: IBM 3278 Beam Spring

I'm really sorry if I'm doing terrible things community wise, you have to remember I have been here for 2 days and joined mainly to sell keyboard that has no value for me personally. Don't be sorry cKype. In fact, we're the ones that should be apologising. You've just witnessed the ugly side of the...

Re: Shit, I fell for it

That’s people though right? No, just this one particular person. "Read my listing wrong the first time? You fell for it, no cancellations, even if the request is immediate!". Nobody conducts business like that; it's a total scum move. Within the eBay guidelines? Sure. But scummy nonetheless. It's a...

Re: [WTB] Various Cherry keyboards, especially OLD-STYLE G80-3100

Bump! Still ESPECIALLY looking for an old style G80-3100, can offer trades or cash. If the Cherry logo key is missing like the G80-3100HAO below, it doesn't matter to me. I've managed to get a spare one to fill its place :mrgreen: I'm also not fussy at all about the condition, so long as everything'...

Re: What is with the cherry G81 misprints?

They're extremely rare, I've only seen a handful crop up myself out of thousands of G80/G81s. I'm sure you're correct, but are you sure they aren't the black MY Type 1 switches?

Thanks for the feedback! The keycaps themselves are called RBT, not cherry, to clarify. Or did you mean the key caps to which I am comparing are not cherry? So, I slightly misunderstood your pitch. I thought you would be offering both RBT and Cherry profile. When I said "don't call that Cherry prof...

You should work on your models, they're ugly. And don't call that Cherry profile, it isn't.

@photekq Is A profile higher at the front edge? If so, I won’t likely like it, but options are always good. You won’t be alone in your preference (whatever it is!) Yeah, A-profile/R5 is the steeper bottom row profile that was used on most winkeyless vintage Cherry boards, like that G81-3100SDU you ...

Without A-profile support I'd consider buying one set for a HHKB layout board. With A-profile suppo...

I would go with the Leopold. It has better build quality. Leopolds are more rigid and heavier than Cherry G80s thanks to the metal plate. If you like the typing feel/sound of a rigid keyboard, then the Leopold could be a great choice. They're good keyboards - no doubt about that. ...And vice versa,...
