Thanks to those jerks (a) the final value fee is now 10% and (b) it is applied to item cost plus shipping. Argh! :mad:
That just means I usually add weight to an item to get a little of that cost back. $10 for shipping on something that only costs me $7 to ship helps pay those fees.

Chyros I have two. I can send you a brown alps switch.

And yes, it does have brown alps. Brown alps to me is a firmer version of topre.

EDIT: Chyros where did you go

In the shipping options I am also seeing $50 expedited shipping as an option, still expensive. It doesn't really matter though since people will bid accordingly.

I meant to send it as a PM xD .

That's awesome! I could definitely use one, I need it for a video I've got planned :D . And I'm just really curious about them, of course :) .

Cheap, untested terminal M. All it needs is a pinout change to work with PS/2 to USB converters, assuming it works at all.

Korean custom + aluminium case + limited production number = very high desirability by people who want to have bragging rights

There's something fishy going on here, Dezemel found them last weekend, bought some, made a bank transfer payment and now I see they're up again ? Hope we don't get screwed.

If we do get screwed, we'd like a proxy for 2 keyboards as well (me + derzemel).

Don't think you need to worry. Seller mentioned that he might have more available while I asked him about terms of payment. Someone bought the remaining 8 while I was waiting for a reply. And the pic he sent me showed a unit with Nixies.

True, he did not accept 40, so after waiting a while I bit the bullet and went for 50 as well. Decent price either way, since most of us missed the first offer.

Are you sure they are Nixies?
Found the listing quite a time ago, googled them with the number on the label and found this:

I hope I'm wrong, and good luck to you all (3 remaining at the moment :mrgreen: )

HaaTa's one seems to have different "F-row" caps, the 2.0 unit ones along the top of the keyboard... I sincerely hope they're not the same, though. :oops:

That's why I asked him to take a pic, kbdfr. I had the same suspicion.

Well, I sincerely hope he isn't trying to f*ck us over with the picture. Are parts of the keyboard visible on your pic, guk? As well as the clear-top switch?

I highly doubt we could blame him for false advertising since he only shared the picture with you, not everyone.

I based it on this : http://imgur.com/a/WopIO

the first row of numbers is identical and the second row should be the serial number.

edit : also asked him to confirm that all of them have the same product number.

Don't know if this is something special/mechanical, but the keycaps look nice :D
