Broken K60 > Project keyboard

Hey guys, I've been too busy with university and life in the last times, and sadly I left the forum. Now I'm back and I'll try to stay active again :) I'm sadly writing this on a rubber dome :( My only "modern" (USB) mechanical keyboard is fried. What I'm gonna do is probably sell some classic keybo...

Hi everyone, what is a Model M2 worth? I don't want to sell it, I'm just going to paint the case so I'd like to know if I'm ruining a collectable or not

I'd go with DSA caps, they are lot easier to find and probably better than completely flat caps.

I've tried for the first time DSA caps this week and they're really awesome, I like them a lot more compared to Cherry profile!

If it IS broken, it's almost certainly due to the capacitors. Simply solder in new ones and it should work. Yeah I'm not that much worried about it working or not, indeed. I just hope to have the right capacitors at home and not having to go out and buy them :lol: My only concern was it being rubbe...

Yup, that's an M2. Rare to find one nowadays that works - only one of my three worked, and that only partly at first. Did you have yours tested? Here's my review on it, if you're interested: It will be shipped to me next week. I've seen that it's prone to failure, I hope it works and if not I'll tr...

What I think is you're lucky. It would be much better for me to waste less time lurking on deskthority or reddit, and not spending all my money on keyboards

If I were in your position I'd probably consider other options. I owned a Quickfire TK and if you often change between numpad and arrows it's not that good, it was pretty annoying for me to go on the arrows with the numlock still active and write numbers all over the place. I think arrows and/or num...

Hi everyone, Not so recently I acquired two G81-1000HAU, both without the sticker on the back. Now I started working in a typography, we print stickers all the time, and I'd like to print an accurate replica of the label. Does someone have a G81-1000HAU with the sticker in nice condition? Could you ...

Got mine aswell. Looks good. But I got the caps from the G81-8008LPAIT aswell without realising that all the mods have a strange stabaliser... It was the mods I was going to use on regular MX board... :o :( Anyway, that was my own fault for not checking it up. :oops: Thanks for organising this acol...
