The design of mainstream keyboards today is intimately connected with what passes as mainstream computing. For example, it is impossible to be productive in Microsoft Word without the use of cursor keys and the nav cluster. The same is true for Microsoft Excel, with the addition of numpad and functi...

I don't like how USB connectors jut out the back of some keyboards. So with my 60% keyboards I use a cable with an angled mini-USB connector. Angled adapters are also quite handy, but a little more bulky than when integrated into the cable itself. Both the POK3R and the V60 have mini-USB connectors ...

I believe OLKB sell the correct plate-mount CherryMX-style stabilizer. But agree with chzel you shouldn't need to replace your stabilizer if you haven't tried lubing it.

I picked up a set of 90 rings from Hypersphere. With shipping to the UK and import duties, each ring came out to about £0.52. So I would say this GB is a pretty sweet deal. Needless to say they are high quality rings, as RexS attested under microscope.

Yes. In Round 5A the red ISO return key is not a standalone key. The smallest kit that includes this key is the HONEYB/ISO/RED kit. You get three other keys with it.

I'd like to hear, if there is still any possibility to order a red ISO return key (HONEY/JRET/RED)? :)

I see none in stock in Round 5 Leftovers. However it seems you can get one as part of HONEYB/ISO/RED.
