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.
