Re: Looking for a very specific setup

Re: WTB Cherry g80-2100H*D keyset(full or partial)

This is a sad example of a very, very rare keyboard having obviously been butchered for its vintage black switches. It has the same layout as what in the wiki I called the " first generation" G80-2100 , i.e. with the Cherry key in the programming block itself (instead of in the cursor block like in ...

Re: [WTS] Cherry G80-0777H/7

Even if in your price check thread I said I couldn't give an estimate,
I would concur that particularly given its US layout, a $150 price tag seems reasonable.for your keyboard.

Re: Price check on my vintage keyboard

According to the Cherry documentation , the G80-0777 is the US version, while the G80-0778 is the German version (and the G80-0779 the French version). There is also a similar version ( G80-0832 ) with dedicated keycaps made for the engraving machine manufacturer Gravograph, and also a rack mount ve...

Quite Siemens style keycaps, 30€ still okay.
30€ is the price for the Desko keyboard. Do you have an opinion on that one ?
If its cherry MX black, then definitely worth it...
As it has lasered caps (recognizable by the bars on the F and J keys), it will most certainly have MY switches.

[…] I don't get why with the billion 3x4 macropads out there, nobody's doing a 2x6 explicitly designed to bolt to the left side of a keyboard, or a 2x12 to sit on top, so you can convert an ordinary 101/103/104 to something close to a MCK-142 or Omnikey Ultra.
