Eugh! I would have only been buying the Allegro board for the doubleshot keycaps, but you've just confirmed my suspicions about the awful feel and quality. I think I'll skip it and wait for something nicer to come up. It's not all bad, you know. As I said, I'm pretty new to all this mechanical stuf...

Are you by any chance selling it on Allegro.pl? If so, I've been thinking of buying it for a while now. :D I'm not selling it, and I don't recommend buying it. My second impression is really not that favourable. It seems my sample of the keyboard is well past its prime. There are two click-leaves i...

I actually found one of those APC keyboards in my own closet! It's DTK-branded and its FCC ID is GOGAPC21. It uses the "Type II" switches (with one wide and one narrow click-leaf). Overall it's a nice quality keyboard, it clicks nicely, but some of the keys are sticky for no apparent reason. Maybe s...

I believe Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator (MSKLC) is the official solution for making keyboard layouts for Windows. I used it successfully to create my own layout with some common typographical symbols (such as « » ® © “ ” ’ ‘ —) readily available. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb96466...

I suspect you are correct. I was caught out by the "ALPSCL" (as in SKCL), but it has a reverse curve case, not a banana case. It's the same shape as this: http://sandy55.fc2web.com/keyboard/wang-5181.html Rubber domes with sliders. And it actually has the same FCC ID. Well, I guess it's still a rat...

$5 for the lot? You didn't mention they were all from one guy! I bought three of them from one guy for $3 and the fourth one from another seller for $2. You're all but guaranteed to find a nice mech or two among them. Good, old-school, score! I really hope this is the case, but if not, I certainly ...

I see you have keycaps labeled in Ukrainian, very nice! It even has a symbol for Ukrainian hryvnya!

that´s quite unusual to find three keyboards like that all with Cyrillic legends. I think he "only" found three keyboards Mu! Not very unusual, actually, since I live in a country which uses Cyrillic script... :-) Anyway, I decided to bite the bullet and bought all of these keyboards for a whopping...

Keyboard identification

Hello. I'm new here and new to all this mechanical stuff. Recently I decided to switch to a mechanical keyboard. But before buying something new and expensive, I first decided to sift through our local eBay-like sites in search of vintage treasures. I have found four keyboards that look promising, b...
