Re: Possible Unicomp SSK

Not even a fan of 10 keyless, but I think I'd buy one, and then get a seperate 10 key pad. (wish unicomp made one)

Re: Mechanical Keyboards Are Thriving Because Apple and Microsoft Don't Make Them

I like my keyboards like I like my women. Thiccc and pleasant to the touch. Typing this on an AEK with salmon alps. Probably one of the better products Apple ever made.

Re: Input Club Beamspring-like? new board

So assume I don't do the kickstarter. Will I be able to get one at a later date, (likely for a higher price). I've unfortunately used most of my reasonable disposable income on video games. :|

Untested, presumably works. I might have some software for it somewhere. I can test specific things on request. Have no idea what these are worth honestly.

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. Thought I should edit before I get hate, my opinion is unpopular and subjective. I would always recommend trying one, but for a daily usage board I wouldn't recommend one due to ...

I would love to have one.

My holy grail nmb board would be ANSI with windows keys and a split space bar. though I don't think that exists. so I'd settle for a split space bar ANSI. 1u backspace is a killer.
