Interesting, how much did you end up paying? Was it significantly less than a HHKB?

Afraid not - no ADB either.

No Ethernet either which was a bit of a shock.

ALPS don't seem to fair as well as MX with use over time - that's kind of a turn off.

I think a lot of this "topre don't last very long" is down to that silly thread on GH which measured a couple of HHKBs (using a questionable measurement procedure), performed now formal analysis and then generalized to the whole population of topre keyboards everywhere. Annoyingly, I'm sure this thr...

Remember 86u is 30-40-45g. 87u is 35-40-45g. It makes quite a difference. Hmmm, I was always under the impression that even though they marked the pinkies at 30, they were in fact 35. Just like the 87U, EK say in the advert that the pinkies are 30; the 87U anniversary that I had even marked the pin...

I had a 86U that I used quite a lot for just under a year. I thought it felt great, but when I bought another variable 87U and tried that the difference was night and day. I thought that the used 86U was significantly less tactile than the 87U. To be honest, since feeling how much difference I felt ...

Just wondering, does anyone type any faster with the Kinesis, ergoDox, or anything of that shape? You'll type fast on any layout that you've gotten used to. This is more of a comfort/ergonomic thing (thumb clusters etc...). I guess you could argue that you might be able to type faster because its l...
