hmmm. Thanks for the tip :D hadn't thought of that. I use QWERTZ etc for 1-0, but making a numpad actually makes a whole lot more sense

hehe, maybe. I'll see how this works for now. It is actually kind of confusing to not have a number row :D The feel of the split is kind of awesome though, and these Tipros are real well built! Nah, no hole. I just removed the side covers :) It's just for testing, if I decide to keep this configurat...

Did you made some holes in the case in order to attach the Bus? At least its locks so.

I *think* the problem with that setup would be that the modules are not able to share the same layer configuration, so if you shift to layer 2 on device one, device two will not shift to that layer. I need them to share the layer config :/ Oh bummer. Anyone to confirm this? I'm not quite sure what ...

Well, seeing as how most ALPS switches actuate at about 65-70g, and BS at about the same, there isn't really another readily available, realistically priced alternative for lighter switches, now is there?

I had a clear board, but sold it since I felt it was too stiff. Never tried clears with black springs though. The browns pretty much force me to stop mashing the keys. A light touch is needed, otherwise, they'll just feel like raspy linears.

The browns grow on you. I hated them at first as well, but after using a board with them for two months, I actually think I prefer them to blues. You need to be/become a light typist though.

It looks like you need a real Tipro cable for that :/

Check page 9-10 (13-14 pdf count) in http://www.perimatic.fr/documentations/ ... Manuel.pdf

They mention a split cable which I think will connect to the 'Tipro'-port.

Here you go :)

From left to right, Cherry doubleshot, Cherry thin PBT, SP doubleshot, WASD, PLU

Even though they look kind of thin, they feel real rigid and solid. Haven't tried them on blacks, but I think they'd be nice there as well.

I plan on using two of them to make one complete keyboard, as depicted by the attached picture, so I think I'm going to have to come up with a way to make the connection external, perhaps jack the existing PS/2 connectors??

kbdfr, do you know if you have to use the small internal 6-pin connector to chain these modules together?? Or is it possible to connect them some other way?

GAH! Haven't gotten mine yet. You guys aren't making the wait any easier! :D To wire them together, I think you need to open the side of the unit or something and connect the 6-pin connector directly in to the slave module of the other unit?

I'm sure the sharpness round the edges will fade after use. Most lasered keys I've used have looked fairly similar until they've been broken in a bit.

I ordered the full set for $49.99, but used the number pad area to get samples of the different colors and the additional orange-colored WASD-cluster.

WASD keycaps!

Got my first order of WASD keycaps yesterday, and put them on my cheap & cheerful (it really is!) PLU ML-87 with browns. I opted for a more classic look of white against light gray with RGB modifiers. I chose white as the main color even though I was ripping on ripster (#"¤%!) for gunk that could ge...

That's a damn shame, thanks for the heads up. I was a bit suspicious of the sheer amount of buyer information Obook provided me with (I didn't bother reading it all, figured it's only 70 EUR, so it was worth the risk), but it worked out in the end.

If I'm not mistaken, Cherry resets their serials every year. So the 5000 would be the first one produced in 1998, and the 3484 the first one produced in 2006.
