Well its a decent board, but i guess youd like to know why its 150+ euro nice? That i cant tell you unfortunatly. Its got nice switches and doubleshot caps but i for one would not pay that kind of money for those parts. It is not new in box so its also not the collectors value......

Yes I don't know why this board worth 150+ thats right.
So thats all? Doubleshots and nice switches (wich ones btw?) nothing more?

Usually such keyboard goes away for 20-40 bugs. 150 is way overpriced.

I got one set of black DS from an old g81 for 6€+shipping. And a verry nice Cherry Keyboard with white DS for 20€

1.25 Center stem cherry modifiers are the new thing to have ...

Plus it's obviously shiny as hell which means it's seen some heavy use!

Anyone that's looking for such a keyboard - only 100€ at my place... :twisted:

I just washed the keys of mine yesterday, rather scarce are those Double shots with padprinted Winkeys making for 1.25 modifiers as mentioned above. So direct fit without moogle kit. offcenter capslock. But totally not worth a price above 50€ imo.

Pah! 1.25 units modifiers are lame! 1.5 units FTW!

Jean projectiles under the 2006 writings of Nimes takes its black cherry. Question will be deleted.
I'm SURE that means SOMEthing in Hangul. Otherwise I keep thinking I am reading Korean Koans at KBDmania.

I'm just saying I still don't know the reason. :)

Last one with 1.25 modifiers sold for similar price... though it was much nicer shape. White/beige with 1.25 is much harder to find so it gets a price premium.

Live winkeyless. Live easy. Save money. 8-)

(Who wants a Windows logo on his key caps at all? Even if it *was* doubleshot... :?)
