[FS] - Czarek's spring sell out: HHKB, Filcos, Duckys, IKBCs, Leopold and Cherry

I figured out I have a bit too many keyboards and I don't use most of them so I decided to sell at least some of them for now. I might add more boards to this list at later point. All keyboards come in original boxes with all original accessories, unless otherwise stated and of course are fully work...

I have brand new unused IKBC KD104 in white with MX Blues I can sell you really cheap if you're interested. It's a very decent keyboard, especially for the price (~300 PLN, negotiable).

I surely can't be the only one prefering Model M sound to Model F sound, right? Feels wise, F is springier and more gentle, but the sound of early M is a joy to the ears compared to my F122 or F AT. Not to mention stupid, rock heavy space bar on XT and AT Model Fs...

I have the same board - 1391401 made in UK, and as a matter of fact, also from 1988. It's very nice keyboard indeed. Surprisingly hasn't lost any of the rivets yet, even though I got it second hand, and judging by condition of case it had very hard life. Not that it's much better at my home where it...

Being extremely simple and minimalistic construction G80s are ones of the easiest keyboards to fix. Just clean it up, dust it off, and if necessary open some switches (no desoldering required) that cause problems and dust off their insides. It's basically just a simple matrix and dumb PS2 (or option...

Why stay away from variables? That way he can try all the weights available in Topre keyboards :) Also typing on that is quite unique. You don't really feel the variable weighting unless you really look for it. Otherwise it's just easy on fingers, making the keyboard feel a bit lighter overall. I th...

Be warned. My experience is a bit hardcore as I'm coding for ~10 hours a day, but 55G Topre made permanent damage in my right hand ring and little fingers after using it for nearly a year. I can feel them hurt when I use heavier switches now, and honestly, 55G Topre feels the worst - hurts more than...

I actually quite like buckling rubber version of this switch. Linears (same switch but with spring instead of rubber) are really awful though.

But yeah my CDTV keyboard was brand new when I got it. There is a video of me typing on it few years ago:

Plenty. The controller is about the same size as the regular or Space Saver Model M so there is plenty of room inside. As a matter of fact I'm sometimes thinking if they did it on purpose in the past with leaving such empty hollow spaces inside keyboards to make them sound better or something. Take ...

Like anything else. Out of Alps based keyboards I only tried V60 with Matias Quiet switches and they felt more solid, with more pronounced tactility without any reverbs in sound, making it sound a bit harsher than normally. Eventually I went back to plastic case as I actually prefer the sound and fe...

I think everyone is different but it's not true that the lighter the better. Tactility also plays a huge role. For me the most ergonomic switches are standard MX Browns with faint (but enough not to bottom out) tactility and 45g actuation. MX Blues have slightly sharper tactility which is more fun, ...

It's higher DPI (4000 vs 1600 DPI of older gen), and supports Logitech Flow which is kind of simpler version Synergy software. I actually always have my mice set to 1600 DPI when using my 3x1080p screens. But yeah, my previous daily mouse was Zowie EC1A and the difference in tracking precission is s...

Daniel, I got it from Logitech directly and as you can see on this picture it started changing colour just after 2 hours of use. That's not acceptable and if people will not return those mice, they will never know they have to research and improve materials they use. I know how this story from the o...

If you can use it daily, do it, otherwise just use it on occasion when you do Vim/Tmux or use macOS as it's very nice on HHKB. I'm on my second HHKB right now and it...
