Took a gamble on a Monterey K103 last week and it just arrived today. Was expecting white Alps but hoping for Omron Alps-styles, ended up with blue Alps. Never expected to get blues for less than $200, especially not in such a nice board. Good build quality, doubleshot keycaps, 2u backspace, deliciously thick arrow key legends; couldn't ask for much more. The keycaps are filthy but the switches are surprisingly not bad. Shouldn't take more than some air duster to make them feel close to perfect. Unfortunately my phone's camera is broken so I can't get any pics of it aside from the ones in the ebay listing.

A few weeks ago I acquired the same Monterey board. Indeed, nice build quality and keycaps.
However, it doesn't work with my cheap no-name PS/2 - USB adapter. May I ask what DIN to USB adapter you are using.
I use a 5-pin DIN to USB Soarer's converter from Orihalcon. My Hasu PS/2 to USB converter works fine as well.

Thanks! I will check the Soarer's converter from Orihalcon.

Just found a Silitek SK-0002-1M at my favorite junk store. White Pine SKCM (1991, not the early ones), and immaculately clean inside. It was literally laying on the ground outside, but not a bit of yellowing. Multicolor Taiwanese (?) legends on printed caps. Serial number is 910100011, probably the 11th one built in the first week of 1991? I've seen these with a Liteon label, and I found one a year or so back that was sold as a Northgate, but this is the first time I've seen Silitek (the actual manufacturer) branding. The only damage besides a slightly crushed DIN plug is a bit of road rash on the three right side keys on the numpad from being stepped on. Should be the same as an AT101W, so no big deal.

I decided to get one of these because I'd been on the lookout for a decent 60% hotswap board with a standard ANSI (i.e., Pok3r) layout, and after watching Chyros' video review I decided this was the one to go with. So far it is working quite nicely with my iPad.

Nice catch! Is it an Argentinian terminal layout?

I'd like to see a better picture (but I'm willing to bet it's gonna be closer to a Spanish (Latin America) layout).

Sorry, the listings just disappear when someone buys the product and I can't check the pictures again. I don't really know :lol: when I saw a model F for that price I got mad and bought it.

Ok, show us the pics when it does show up at your door (let's hope it's indeed an F122 and not an M122).

Dont' worry, I will. I can confirm it's a model F because of the metal backplate. and the rusty spots under the keycaps.

I finally got it. I think the owner had alzheimer or something. Smells like dog but feels very good.

Seems like a modern super linear according to video reviews:
- so little wobble like filmed retooled blacks
- so smooth every unlubed more than the retooled blacks
- sounds like the Cherry blacks with these housings

Looking forward to someone with a build with these fully lubed

Just like IKEA you have to assemble them yourself.
