I have swapped APC/Tai-Hao leaves (from older models though) into Alps SKCM Black and it improved the tactility quite a bit. The keyboards had okay doubleshot keycaps as well, but that's about it.

I really like the older mechanical APCs (I have and Orteck MCK-101 with some branded/unbranded ones, best clones I've tried), but the membrane based ones are really only good for the novelty, the caps and possibly the click leaves.

Dunno, are those caps doubleshot? The lettering sure looks sharp.

The layout reminds of the Wyse 85 terminal and DEC LK201 Keyboards.

Looks like datacomp, I know some of those came with green and blue alps, I have one of the 515AT's and that had blue alps and the same arrow keys.

The bold arrow keys say Datacomp, but that Caps Lock keycap suggests something other than Alps. I'm guessing Futaba MA switches, but that's only a maybe.

edit: looks like a Datacomp DFK-501:

Could be also wiki/Datacomp_DFK555 it looks the same (I have one right now). Futaba MA switches inside.
Also I have a problem connecting it to PC for some reason and some users on this forum had similar issue.

Just found this DFK-515, apparently there *were* Alps Datacomps with the big step on the Caps Lock key:

Anyone has experience with this one?

The seller says it's Harris C1100 but I can't figure out what switches are in it. Thanks!

What sort of switches do you all think this Panasonic Business Partner 150 uses? I can't find any info through Google/Wiki on this specific model, but the Business Partner 286 used primarily Blue Alps.

I can almost guarantee that is some sort of dome/scissor switch.

Makes sense, the caps are very short. Cheers

This looks a bit like NMB (space invader), but I could be wrong

Looking at the the big old style numbers you might be right actually..

Never have an F&F. I know some people really hate it... I suppose I should start looking for an xwhatsit
