Great keyfeel, great noise, ~$100 for a completely new one. Other new fullsize mechs that price are mostly RGB junk or a barebones Cherry G80 without a backplate. meh... keyfeel is a quite subjective factor so I'll leave that out... but im not a fan noise? no thanks And in my opinion there aren't a...

I feel the same way for a somewhat different reason... I now have everything I want in this hobby. I do love the community though, definitely worth it to stick around for just the fellowship.

Just ordered two Cherry MX G80s. One G80-11900LTMUS and one G80-8113LRDUS-2 both NIB. I'm pretty sure they'll have vintage blacks so it will be interesting to see how NIB vintage blacks will stand up to NIB SKCC greens. They'll also be my first MX boards so I guess If I don't like MX black Ill be a...

Just missed this strange beast ("vintage PC in a keyboard") - my bid came in second. Possible blue ALPS? It also has weird colours on some keys (e.g. green tab and enter legends, blue horizontal and red vertical arrows?!). I'm beginning to really regret not having placed a higher bid - but as I was...

Instead of linear box switches I would always recommend retooled Cherry mx black switches, they are smooth and as we know for over 30 years now they are designed perfectly. And with 20ct per switch they are also the cheapest option out there: https://www.arrow.com/en/products/mx1a-11nn/cherry-ameri...

I noticed a similar bleaching on the LE logo with mine. a friend recently retrobrited it for me, and the red faded from the logo. I just replaced the logo with one from a dc-2014 I scrapped for switches awhile back. here's a potato pic of the finished product.

is the case severely warped or is that a trick of the camera?

I can provide you a pinout of the cable if you need it.

There's no need to pin it out, it's standard AT protocol. All you need is a DIN-5 to PS/2 converter (and a PS/2 to USB converter if you can't use PS/2). Alternatively if you want to remap keys you can buy a pre-converted cable from Orihalcon that converts straight from DIN-5 to USB. no? pretty sure...
