It‘s not an official DT chat, just a keyboard related chat group on Telegram. The DT references have long been removed because it‘s too much work moderating the chat decently.
I understand this little drama is a great opportunity for you to get some attention but it‘s unrelated to DT really.

My impression was that each keyboard MODEL got it's own serial number range.

So it would appear you've got #18 of the model G80-3000LQMDK

Can we get a short typing demo on that keyboard?

My impression from these entry level chinese clone RGB board was that they are commonly unpleasantly loud with high pitched plastic noise.

Just wondering if that thing happens to be office proof sound wise because that would really be a steal ;)

MX Clears causing stress marks - on what caps? GMK is well known for using MX clears in their industrial boards and this would mean the OG Skidata caps should have a few cases of stress marks.

Here's my input: I don't care what you think about Model M's. I mean, you're just some person off in, what, Denmark?

There's been a UK based GB of MX Silent Black switches a while ago and they were like ... roughly ... 0.35€ iirc

I bought a few thousand and mostly harvested them for the HOUSINGS ... if you are interested in some MX Silent Black stems let me know.

Okay so I _think_ the QFR and Rapid-i mark a big change in design. While the QFR was Costar stabs, the Rapid-i has Cherry style stabs. Norbauer cases are Rapid-i and Novatouch compatible as well as Masterkey (better double check that) but not QFR compatible. So I assume CM moved to a new case design...

Yes! Practically a clone of the G80-3000 with a plate is what I had in mind.
But your main keyboard is supposed to be a Wyse WY-60.
That's pretty much a G80 with a plate and a bit weird layout

Afaik there are Wyse models that have more standard layouts.
