Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

That's a lot of effort to get rid of the battery peins, but maybe worth the connectivity you get (compared to a Pro2 BT mod).
A really good solution would be an aftermarked bottom case.

Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

I'd say the battery compartment is the biggest issue yes, the new case design is also something people have mixed feelings about, I personally don't think it's a good looking case. However the real innovation is the programmability and connectivity, I also like the dip switches on the bottom side an...

Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

Innovation in Japan is slightly different and I understand this, however I wouldn't necessarily say that PFU is "Doing an Intel".
The new product iteration has some sort of innovation, but it's not the one I personally was hoping for and I believe some people feel the same way.

It's for an HHKB where beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder, and nowhere else ;) .
True, but let's be honest. PFU dropped the ball this time.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

I've never in my life seen an HHKB that yellowed, and I own a very yellowed one!

Check this out: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124021219427

It must have sat on a sunny windowpane the entire time.

Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

I'd say the bag itself is the best part of the entire set, however you can't buy just the bag. I like this one as well: https://kbdfans.com/collections/keyboar ... rying-case

HHKBs should be about simplicity, nothing else.

Re: Deskthority Awards 2019 ~ Phase 1: The nominations

It has an MX mount, so it's not that useless. ... The value is mostly that you can't sell it and it's not easily reproduceable (although, y'know, Chinese guys). Sure, agreed, but why a wing nut? Apparently because nuts and bolts are symbolic of 'mechanics'. I reckon that's why it was chosen to repr...

Already have 12 of them.

From the oldest to the newest releases.

But having an HHKB done with 104 standard ANSI key layout, now that would be worth acquiring for my collection.
Maybe an HHKB sticker for your RF is what you need?

Re: Realforce R2 PFU Limited Edition

The split right shift is the true powerhouse of the hhkb layout, I couldn't agree more. Even if they would leave the rest normal, with that fn key and programability the keyboard would really be something!

Re: Deskthority header images v2

I've just checked the header.php the quality of my images seems to suffer a bit, did you had to upscale them? I've purposely downsized them on 1200x400 but I can add higher quality pictures. So that it doesn't look too pixelized.

@ Hypersphere I totally get what you mean! Once in a while I get my hands on cherry mx boards with a metal backplate and almost all of them ping and resonate because of the metal backplate.
