Definitely my new favorite alps switch, I just couldnt get on with the other alps linears like yellows and greens. these however are super nice, due to the weighting and the softer bottom out.
I'm still missing bown Alps i my collection although I have some waitnig for me i the US. Real nice your Epson.
SKCL brown? where did you find those? this was the first reasonably priced one I have seen in the last year or so.

Yup, I personally don't like skcm brown that much. They are too tactile for me. People compare them to topre BKE domes.

I believe that. Generally all Alps are less prominent over here. We got way more Cherry MX's.

I had to put in a spoiler since this is our Alps thread. You'll find one, it only took me four years and the kindness of elecplus.

This board is so clean. I finally know the feeling of pristine alps. It's so beautiful. :shock:
That is very nice. Is that one from the stock of NOS ones they found a while ago?

(typing this on my green Alps Zenith)
I found this on ebay a few weeks ago. It was the cleaner of the two listed by the seller, and aside from a ding on the case and inside, it's spotless :)

Once I get the right adapter, I'd love to bring this to work and unleash the ping. :twisted:

Yep, always good to bring in a unique keyboard but are you worried about anyone else damaging or worse, pinching it?

Never underestimate human depravity under any circumstance.

I'd be kinda hesitant to use a super pristine board like that at work. I use a rather broken-in one myself, that way I don't feel guilty for wearing the keyboard away eventually xD .

Agreed, I'd have that at home in a box and just enjoy it sometimes.

Sure if you like. It's not really Dolch though to be fair but similair nonetheless.

I wish my modern laptop had Alps... But then I guess my laptop wouldn't be so thin. :P

I actually love the Dolchiness of it.

Whilst most everywhere wants every coloured key-cap under the sun, I actually like the Dolch colour arrangement far more as I get older. Have bought a LOT of key-caps over the years but I always return back to a Dolch, as it calms me.

Only key-set colour that settles my hideous rage far more than any other.

Pity these days most laptops suck in usage, all because some moron though it a new idea to shrink-size all laptops into paper thin rubbish, instead of making decent laptop's to use with your fingers.

Too sad they are pad printing caps, otherwise, I might have bought them.

The dark keys are too light, and the light grey keys are also too light and not quite the right shade, but it's close enough that MOST people wouldn't correct you :P

BTW, you can buy an alps dolch set in proper colors, double shot. They are Tai-hao though, so they are quite thin. However, no thinner than the caps you are showing here.

TBH, i kind of like the set you are showing a bit more than dolch :)

well those are the original caps, so I guess you'd have to find another one of those :)
