Thanks Chyros, I should have remembered. I actually have one sitting in the basement, I think.

@Monster-Toys: That's exactly what happened to me. You'll get over it. ;-)

Might still have it, you never know with vintage boards - or I could be wrong and it's not even a DFK555! When you get it, please do let us know though, for future reference :) .

Of course i will (but after seeing some pics i am pretty sure that you are almost right, i might also be a DFK-501F/502F ... still futuba switches tho).

I think futaba MA are great switches tbh, its rare to find them in an actually good chassis :)

Yeah, should keep the board and wait until they get hyped, too (and then sell for an insane amount of money) :D

Saw this in a "viral" video stop motion of a man eating his previous keyboard.

Anybody got an idea as to what this board may be?

Really? :O I had one of the beige ones and gave it to a friend for free. I'd love to try the switches NOS. I sent them an email and asked if they do indeed still have them, namely the black ones.

Edit: They got back to me and confirmed they don't have any in stock anymore.

Looks nice (keycap profile especially), anyone owns one of these? Looks like some cherry mx clone switch.

That is soooo weird. Looks like Ajazz have went with the increasingly-popular vintage keyboard theme and mixed it with a gamery, angular case design with RGB.

ok thx in principle, I thought so, but they told me that there could be SKCC green

That is indeed SKCC. It could very well have green, but all the ALPSaver's I've seen have used cream.
It looks like it is in fantastic shape too!

I wonder if it could be a computer or Word Processor with built-in monitor, kind of like the Bondwell posted further down but with a printer. Especially Word Processing machines would have been built that way, although those did not often come with a numeric keypad, but a few actual all-in-one computers or terminals did have built-in printers like that.

Hi, Yes I should have been more clear above. This definitely looks like a word processor or very early laptop-esque sort of device

Sometimes you just over think it and you look too far in too many places.... I think its just a IBM 6770 Wheelwriter System/40 Typewriter

Looks exactly like a Datacomp DFK555. Should be Futaba MA.
It arrived today.
100% correct. DFK 555 version 4.0, Futuba MA... i do not like them at all *shudder*.
If any german user wants to have it for shipping + optional voluntary donation PM me, else i will throw it away next week (i do not have enough space to keep keyboards i do not like).

Edit: New owner found, board no longer available.

Speaking of Futaba MA, I heard somewhere that you can "restore" the clickyness in some of them by pressing them super hard with a flathead. I tried this on a completely dead Chicony 5160XT with inconsistent switches, and ended up completely removing the tactility by doing this, while some switches did become very sharp and tactile.
