Re: homing bumps on other keys!

I use an apple aek at work with bumps on d and k. Just an adjustment period. When I switch to another board, it maybe takes me a couple minutes to adjust. Not a big deal now. It was however weird for like the first week or 2 for me.

Re: A little love for Unicomp

Hot take. My 2015 Unicomp M feels better than any of my IBM model M's. I'd buy more from them if I could. That being said, their new cases are definitely more creaky than OG IBM cases. That kinda makes me sad.

I'm sure its been discussed, but is it different plastic?

Re: I visited Unicomp a couple days ago, typed on their new Mini M, and asked them some community questions. *long*

I saw new model M's mentioned a few times. I have one from like 2014 or 15. Custom 103 key. Are the new M's newer than this?

Re: When did you first start appreciating keyboards?

Worked at Geek Squad retail about 10-12 years ago. I had heard about mechanical boards, but had never tried one. Lady came in to recycle some stuff including a IBM Terminal M and a Chicony KB-5181 w/Monteray blues. Never got the M converted, but I used the Chicony for a long time, and I was hooked. ...

Re: Overall opinions on the IBM model M2

I have one in poor shape, but I really like mine. My probably unpopular opinion (don't kill me) is that it feels like a hybrid between a model M and a model F. I quite like it. I'd like to get a good condition one, or a refurbed one to use, as working on them is dreadful, and the construction is qui...

Sure do. Learned basic skills my freshman year in High School, but wasn't great. Then I started Playing Diablo 2 and quickly learned that typing fast was a invaluable skill, so I quickly honed my skills, and learned to spell much better in the process.

Always thought these boards looked interesting for lack of a better term. Love me some battleship keyboards, but these always looked quite boxy to me vs ibm 122 keys.

Is the enter key worn or due to camera angle? It looks quite shiny.
Also I take it it is converted to usb?

Black on black is beautiful. I've been wanting the DAS branded one for some time.

Edit, to answer your question, IMO it is a keeper, though idk the value of one. I'm sure there would be lots of interest in it, if it really isn't for you.

I like the feel of the M2 over the M. Feels more crisp to me, and closer to how an F feels. Build quality is bad though.
