The big package to you is 3-5days everyone else is 2-3days. Thought you guys would like to pay the amount you did, not 130gbp+vat.

In the packing instructions it tells you how to remove the packing instructions!

Luckily it has pictures, otherwise I wouldn't be able to read it and remove the packing.

I'm still sad I missed this. Now that I see the pictures it's getting worse again.

EDIT: I call super-Überdibs in case somebody wants to sell his! :)

I can do another 10 if anyone wants. I can also give you his email address and you can get 1 yourself but postage/import charges get expensive.

AFAIK, HaaTa will do one, he just has to find the time. We could also nag Soarer as he has one as well. :)

Image The rest of the keyboard (numbers and blank section) is the same I think.
I'll take pictures of them side by side later if you want.

It's enough, I can compare them now. How do the switches feel ?
I have an old Chicony with the same old green Alps.

Best linear switch I have tried with some of the best keycaps I have tried. It's why I have 2 and am looking at getting a third. Wouldn't buy more than that as it seems like a good backup number... I don't know if I will use it as much as my model F's but I will get use out of them when someone makes a converter.

In feel, they are smooth with 3.5mm travel, it does feel shorter travel than most keyboards. I didn't know it was shorter until I pretended to type on it and it felt weird.

My daily driver is a terminal F, so I would experience same thing as you.

Indeed, one of the best linear switches in my opinion as well. The short travel distance needs to get used to but after a few minutes I was typing away nicely. The board has a lot op "ping" though, sounds almost like a tuning fork.
The key profile is also rather interesting, kind of Signature Plastic's SA family but different:

What is the PN for the Chinese version ? For the JP, I saw that's 5954339.

There is more than one number for each type. I'll dig out my numbers later tonight.
