It's free +? Does this mean you get a free board and a gift, as well? :o I'll take one then, I think.

That's probably a really nice "macro board", right?

[...]New doesnt mean it was made in the past 5 years. Its been sitting in a box. The box is slightly mauled so there is a bit of dust, but the board is unused. Thanks again for the boards, but funny thing: I think this board really was made in the past 5 years (approximately, or at least it's possi...

I can't say this is the right mouse or best mouse. I'm more empathizing with your situation since our requirements are similar, and this is just what I chose recently. One day of using the mouse and I am finding zero problems so far. There's only so much information that can be explained in text wh...

I just got some Steelseries Kinzu (ver.1) from the eBays for fairly cheap because I wanted a plain-looking, basic mouse to replace my Logitech RX1000. I would like this mouse more if the logo were nonexistent. Compared to the RX1000 (great for fingertip-gripping with small hands) it's wider and con...

What's a nice allround mouse?

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a new mouse, since I'll (hopefully) get my first mechanical keyboard this week and need peripherals for my new PC. I've been using a (probably rather) cheap Logitech M-BJ69 which is a very basic optical mouse with two buttons and a wheel (also a button), and a A4 Tech Op...

Methinks these mice are meant for the hipster kind, for these are utterly impractical.

Hmm I think the 'Vim' button on the far right might be a bit troublesome for hjkl as discussed, but bringing Control to the Homerow I'll think about. I wouldn't want my keyboard to beep repeatedly. :? What do you mean? what would cause the beeps? I was referring to the beeps Vim makes if an error o...

I dont mind giving you a money back guarantee as long as you pay return shipping. that way you could try them out. Yes, I was referring to the Berlin 1800s, I used to work for the guy.

i have a new boxed 3000 with blues you can have for 35. I also have an averagely used one for 30. [...] In this case the new one really sounds tempting, but at the moment I do not really have access to a bank account, so I could not transfer to you right now, but I will be at the end of next week. ...

Typos depend on how good of a typer you are - they're DE layout, so if you have to hunt and peck, glhf with working it out, but I know all the keys\modifiers too - so it's no bother for me that it's DE layout. ;) The quality as you can see from CeeSA's pics above, if you pop the caps, casing, etc, ...

If you can stand a used board, I have several g80-3000 boards with blues or blacks Im selling for 30€ per board. DE layout of course. I can also throw in a din ps2 adapter for free :) Yes, I think I would be OK with a used board, at least for such a price. But that actually depends on how used they...

The boards are pretty good, they just need a good scrub when they arrive. I'm personally using them as my daily driver at work, and really enjoying blacks, some say that they find their fingers getting tired after a while, mine don't, I guess it's because I have awesome man hands, and not dainty gi...

Yes, I know, I meant the Leopold(s). (Sorry, probably a little misunderstanding :D) Here, I can get new G80-3000s for around 50€ incl. postage (cheapest offer I could find). Yes, I am from Germany, hence my assumption that a Leopold would cost me a lot, since the only shop I know that sales them is ...

I've ordered several of the USB models. The reason I chose USB is because I'm guessing they'll be slightly newer given that USB is the more up to date technology. Also, based on the model number, I think there's a good chance that they'll be combined USB/PS2. But I won't know for certain until they...

Cherry serial numbers are confusing, so you want to read that entire wiki page again. You must decode them piece by piece, going from left to right: G81 means it uses MY switches. 3004 means it is another version of the 3000 model, in this case a custom one for Peacock. HAD -> the H stands for doub...

I'm thinking of buying one of these keyboards as my first mechanical just to try them out. It will probably be more like a test of whether a new mechanical would be a worthwhile investment for me. :geek: Are there any differences between the USB- and the PS/2-version other than the plug? Is one vers...

Ah yes, those are indeed vintage Cherry MY switches. I have two keyboards with them, but they are just way too stiff for my taste. They can be considered "mechanical" but they offer only a linear feeling (it's just two springs pushing the key up, no extra friction like the MX switches). They are co...

G81-3004 HAD / 10

Hello everyone, I am lurking this forum for a couple of weeks now and decided to finally de-lurk a few days ago. Through this forum and geekhack (I like this site more, a least from my lurking-experience), I have gained interest in mechanical keyboards after I originally google'd for "ergonomic keyb...
