Anyone knows what kind of switches are in this Acer 6511-TW model ?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-6511-TW-1 ... :rk:2:pf:0

I know 6500 are rubber domes, but I wonder about TW model ...

T relates to the type of case (Acer used several at once) and W means it has windows keys :) . It's just a rubber dome keyboard I'm afraid!

In that small-footprint case and made in China? Doomed to be domes!

Filthy domes! :shock:

I suspected this is the case,
but I wonder why they list it as 'Mechanical Switch' on ebay...

I doubt they did any sort of research and just threw some keywords in to rake in the page views in the hopes that some schmuck would buy it

Yup, everything's a clicky mechanical keyboard on eBay.

The F4 site on that Acer 6511-TW looks like an impact crater with a debris field.

Indeed. The would-be Seller of https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223237079419 really hedged their bets:—

Because the "CLICKY" mantra has been sold off to the masses quite effectively.

Nothing gets sold, unless there is a that special word to help sell it off quickly (to the ignorant).

they look engraved, and they're not made by Cherry, so I doubt it comes from a specific article number of a Cherry board

Really? I wonder how they incorporate a tactile click into foam and foil switches

There's a little click leaf in the recess on the side. I'll be showing mine sometime in the new year :) . There are other clicky foam and foil designs as well.

Does anyone know what this switch is? It has two holes in it and each one has a letter mark on itself, a whole alphanumeric table, but they aren't arranged to correspond to the letters on the keycaps.

What do we reckon this is? The stickers on the back don't give away anything. I'm sure I've seen this keycap shape before but can't place it...

Nice carpet by the way! So the layout isn't the only clue to what country the keyboard lives in! :lol:

It looks like it's a rebranded Datacomp with Futaba MA. Those keycaps are extremely distinctive, and I haven't seen them on anything else yet.

Looks like a NTC product to me, but I can't find any others with that kind of shortcut card.

It looks like a banking terminal keyboard. Like the X3315-002 in this thread but in a "deluxe" casing. Given the modifiers I asume is an earlier model.
