This probably isn't worth a full post but heck low-posters like me need to compensate.

I bought this bindly for just under one Euro since I tought it might look good next to my Varmilo. :maverick:

Turns out to be a fun little numerical keypad, I never tried Mitsumi miniature mechanical before but I like these green tactile ones. The seller claimed this numpad was never used, not sure about that but it shows little wear.

I never heard of the company CNF before but the PCB is from Costar which is well known. As you can see these Mitsumi's have MX mount, the keycaps are nothing special. This numpad has a really short connector cable so I guess it was meant to connect to a keyboard.

Seeing how I like these switches I guess I have to get a keyboard with tactile Mitsumi miniature mechanicals now. :mrgreen:

That's really cute! Great find for €1!

I have a well-used board with yellow Mitsumi minis. As Mu said yonks ago, they feel great in the hand, but bind like hell with keycaps on. How are the greens in that respect?

Thanks, these are fine very little binding, the "+" had a bit of binding but after I reattached the stabilizer bar it got better. I like the tactile feedback but this is just a small numpad so I might not be so enthusiastic about them on a full size keyboard.
