So I found this at the thrift store, fairly weird keyboard, but it's mechanical, doesn't appear to have any branding anywhere on it, also the keycaps are freaking massive, you can probably tell by the switches, which are of a fairly average size.

My new keyboard arrived. This time I know what's the keyboard called but I need help with identifying these switches. They are linear and little scratchy. Also some switches have more yellow color and feel better. Thank you

I have the same keyboard only branded as Unitek K-260.
Overall keyboard build quality is shitty IMO but it can be scavenged for those switches for some custom build (and I rather like them)

I've spotted a Samsung SEM-K20S but don't know anything about the switches/keycaps. Any ideas?

It's rubberdome, the keycaps are dyesub but use a proprietary mount iirc. Based on the few pictures I could find the board uses a barrel plate + membrane backed by bent steel plate similar to model m/fujitsu peerless, it seems like a decent quality board for a rubberdome.

Isn't the second one from a Compucolor II? At least I can say that it has SMK J-M0404 switches.

You take that back, Mr. I Got Opinions, or inevitably someone will thwack you with a battleship for maligning their 17th most favourite switch!

Heh, more likely white Alps, and one per, but you never know...

There were many versions of those lunchbox PCs, from XT clones with red plasma screens to 486SXs with pseudo-VGA. This one is a 286, so it's pretty early. I have one of those keyboards here, never used, just the PC board and switches/caps (brown and beige version). It has white SKCM Alps, but about a third of the keys have completely lost their click for some reason.
