Hi All,

Here is some background information about this keyboard:

This keyboard was designed to be mounted in a server cabinet along with the server that it has the ability to be plugged into.

The keyboard is fully steel including the mounting plate that holds the switches making this thing weigh a lot. The built quality is top notch and has a very unique sound because the case is quite hollow and fully metal.

The New Old Stock White Bamboo Alps are the switches that came in this keyboard and sing in this chassis because of it's hollowness.

This keyboard uses a 5 pin Din plug and uses the AT protocol. The keyboard can be used with a simple PS2 to USB active converter but, this keyboard doesn't like a Soarer's converter for some reason.

I use mine as part of a standing desk setup. Fits a RollerMouse with room to spare, and is pretty comfortable at the right height :)

Nice! I use mine as an extra keyboard when I have to turn my desk into a workbench I will post pictures later. I really should try this out though with the roller mouse. I have heard good things.

Any chance of a sound demo? I bet that case makes it sound great
