Re: Great/Interesting Finds

The key feel is quite awful - like poking a mattress, but the SSK layout looks interesting. What do you think? Should I give it some care and post more pictures or is it trash/not interesting? Yes, please don't kill it of just yet. We would like to hear more about the "Sun SSK" :D The layout looks ...

Re: //gainsborough's sale thread

That F122 is such a beauty :shock: A lot of work has probably gone into that board :)
I wish I had the some extra funds atm :cry: Also shipping that thing to the EU would certainly not be cheap either ;) Anyway, GLWS :D

Edit: I also wish I had a bigger desk to fit that huge board :lol:

Re: Reasonable?

3 months?? Thats sound way to long. What model(s) was it, Pro2 or Type-S? Was it pre-order? I bought a Type-S in the beginning of December (which I ended selling in February as the layout was sadly not for me) and the Type-S arrived at the end of January without to much of a delay. I myself haven't ...

Hello everyone :) I would like to sell my stock HHKB Pro 2 Type-S. The board is about a month old and has seen moderate usage during that time.

That sure is a beautiful board, simple and elegant :) The wider case/bezel design of older Topre boards look so good imo.

Oh you bet it is. I love my Bluetooth HHKB . By far and away my most practical, and therefore used, of all my keyboards. I think Vometia’s ISO dependency is about the *physical* ISO Enter key vs. ANSI, not a *logical* remapping of other keys in the layout. If so, an alt controller would make no dif...

I’d give the cheaper FC660C consideration, as near on everyone loves those. But again with the ANSI and off standard layout.

Does the Leopold have a plate? Yes or no will make a qualitative difference. Its absence certainly does in the HHKB, which feels the lightest 45g of all. The FC660C also has a plate. Before I bought the FC660C I tried a friends stock HHKB, and now afterwards when I can compare it to the FC660C the ...
