Well I have not made that call we talked about but still I'm being honest. It would evoke chaos...

Just consider how many great keyboards your hesitation is destroying every month ...
We could all have a MX5000 if you did your duty!

That is of course true, less energizing for people who don't care too much about any MX package, you think I could find any of this in any german recycling center raid Wodan?

The currentl ModelF yield is 0.

But that might be different in HH :)

I talked to a guy from a recycling center in Hamburg and showed him pictures of Model F keyboards and he said "oh yeah we use those as door stoppers and stabilizing weights for road signs. They are common like rubberdomes here"

I've seen the exact same logo on tons of keyboards but this is the first G80 I've come across.

First thought when I spotted the logo was "I'll be damned, Nixies!" but yeah ... G80!

I had a G8x-1000 with that logo, but the case was damaged beyond repair.
Fortunately the logo was just a badge simply glued on the case :mrgreen:
