Re: HHKB Pro 2 Type-S, Kinesis Advantage2 QD, Kinesis Freestyle2 Blue, Thinkpad Bluetooth Compact

I'm selling them because I changed jobs - as a contractor I was moving around a lot plus dealing with RSI issues, so having a flat bluetooth keyboard w/trackpoint to use was a godsend (working out of hotels, conference rooms, etc). Having two was nice so I could keep one in my bag and one at the of...

My amazon history says I bought them in August 2018, so they're relatively new.
Nice. Sort of as an aside.
Why selling them?
They work fine I assume?

Also, why’d you have 2?
(Just curious)

Very interested in buying btw

Re: Does Your Ideal Mouse Exist?

@Spearra

Great call on the RollerMouse Red

Those things are really unique and totally can be a dream come true for RSI/other point device related pain.

I like the way they feel/react for short spurts and window navigation/shortcuts, etc, but I'm really not into them for longer term typing.

Sorry for bumping and old thread, but has anyone used one with a Mac and specifically seen what could be done to tweak the tracepoint settings with BetterTouchTool perhaps?

Just an another example, I'm right now, in 2 seconds each time, switching my Plum back and forth between BT connections with my gaming HTPC (win10) and my iPad next to me for iMessage responses.

So awesome..

I use the Plum Nano 75 on my iPad and with my media center and have to recharge it every two weeks I'd say.

I really do wonder if all legit Topre's would be more popular if they had MX compatibility.

I think the keycap switching is a big deal in the mech keyboard demographic.

Yeah, as much as I enjoyed legit Topre boards over the years, the options on these Plums just blows them away for my needs. 1. Much cheaper entry price 2. Form factors not available in genuine Topre 3. Full programmability (also not available unless a custom HHKB or something) 4. Bluetooth wireless ...

Very nice! Thanks for sharing!

I also just procured a 2nd 45g Nano 75 RGB (lightly pre-owned)

I'm not sure they are going to make anymore.
Mech Greenhand had commented in a PM to me somewhat to that effect, but maybe I misread what he meant.

Yes, you can assign FN anywhere you want. I currently have it in the Caps Lock position and I also have it swapped with R-Alt so that R-Alt is where it usually is (next to the spacebar) and FN is the next key over. Keep in mind that your remapped keys only work when the keyboard is switched over to...

@slyker:

I think the Chinese sellers get down to "x amount of inventory left" and jack the prices.
That is my impression after watching a variety of prices on a few of the AliExpress stores over the last year.

MechGreenhand was nice enough to provide me with a copy of the Plum Nano 75 English Instruction Manual.

So others can easily get a copy, I thought I'd upload a PDF copy of it here (attached to this post).
