Square slider integrated domes are awful. Round slider is much more pleasant.

$3,160.67 UPS Worldwide Express :lol:
For that price you could launch that keyboard lot into low earth orbit in a Falcon Heavy.

Wait, a pre-flipped space bar? I think you lose all credibility as a designer with that bit of nonsense.

What I've gathered from reading the literature is that this was designed for the modern, contemporary, avant-garde enthusiast. Does that describe you? If so, you may want to hop on board.

Don't write off the SMK switch so quickly. It's one of the better clicky switches out there. And I wouldn't consider it an Alps clone really. It is rather unique. You might even like it better than white Alps. Has Chyros or some other individual, done a video showing these switches in action as of ...

I only have one keyboard with (blue) Monterey switches, a Mitac in well-used condition. I'm personally biased towards Alps, but others may prefer the Montereys. Thanks for the heads up, didn't even know that you have these so-called Alps clone like switches, inhabiting the Keyboard world. The funny...

Also note that this particular white SMK switch is clicky. It is not the tactile variant found in ADB keyboards.

Are you planning an auction with a reserved price? From what I saw in the last couple weeks, if the auction starts high, it won't sell. Also, do it! :evilgeek: I thought about it, but I think reserve auctions charge an additional fee based on what the reserve price is. But only if it sells. Putting...

It doesn't appear that he was the winner for the one that recently went for $375, but this most recent auction is a match. Interesting. So he paid almost $340 for this most recent AEK II in the hope that he can maybe eventually resell for $400, which is really about $348 after fees? Whatever is goin...

I think it's the same couple buyers that are always in on these boxed Dell AT-101s. The runner-up with the ridiculously high feedback score I recognize for sure, they've won several over the past year or two. No idea what the motivation is.

A proper Alps revival would be great, as long as we're not too nostalgic about it. We don't want to do a perfect reproduction of a switch that has poor wear resistance and longevity. Better plastics and tighter tolerances at the very least. I disagree. Remember we're talking about keyboards from th...

The Beamspring market is truly screwed now. It'll come down eventually, after sellers start flooding the market, but there should be a permanent increase. Somebody design a low profile Beamspring already :cry:
