Re: Reasonable?

Yes, I did say CandyKeys refunded me without any fuss whatsoever. CandyKeys, I STILL want the board, so if you have it, I would still like to buy it.

Re: So what's new?

There's basically nothing new. A couple of keycap sets, a couple of new gayming keyboards and that's about it.

just to sum up — hey guys, I'm going to order a couple of HHKBs, do you have them? — SURE! Go ahead! — Great!

Re: Reasonable?

I would like to update this topic in case some wanderer from the future comes here via Google and gets the wrong impression; candy keys has returned my money and that was no issue at all. Like someone else mentioned, the guys over there are good and have good intention, but perhaps lack some experie...

Re: Does Your Ideal Mouse Exist?

Yeah, the third mouse button was not great there. But it's also not great on G502 and neither on the MX master and I have a feeling it has something to do with the hyper scroll wheel.

Rest of the mouse was, for me, fantastic.

Re: Future of DT

I was going to mention that to me, it feels like the interest in mechanical keyboards has lowered since maybe 7-10 years ago. But Google Trends tell me my feelings are wrong. I don't know. I don't have any accounts to various social media platforms and I don't understand them. I get nothing out of s...

Re: Does Your Ideal Mouse Exist?

Anyone else misses the G9x? I'm loving the "new" Pro from Logitech purely aesthetically, but I can't live without the hyperscroll wheel. Dang it.

I've been using the G502 for several years now and while the mouse is outstanding for me, it's so unbelievably ugly and tacky. But it's so useful.

Generally, I find laptop keyboards atrocious. However, I find the Microsoft Surface keyboard surprisingly OK.

Re: Reasonable?

Yeah, I don't just hate candy keys now or something. I think what they're doing is great, but the whole reason why I bought from them was because they seemingly had the boards in stock and already in Europe, which means I would be getting my grubby hands on them as soon as possible. It was actually ...

Thanks for the answers. I ordered it as "in stock", I sent an e-mail before hand "are they really in stock???" to which I got a reply "yes", but was notified after ordering that "oops, we actually don't have one, well we do, but we have to give it to someone else for RMA". Which didn't sit too well ...

Reasonable?

I bought 2 HHKBs through candykeys and I've been waiting for 3 months, but it still hasn't showed up. What would you say is reasonable time to wait for a purchased good to arrive? Am I being unreasonable if I'm thinking about requesting a refund? Both candykeys and me are in Europe, the shipping tak...

What an incredibly stupid comparison. Not really worth my time to dismantle it, sorry.

I'm also sorry you do not understand how someone faster behind a computer will be more productive than somebody who is slower, given all other circumstances are equal.
