Not a fan, but the fact that there is a programmable knob means this'll hopefully beat the piece of shit Logitech Craft chiclet keyboard with a know that they are selling for $199.

$199 for a fucking knob on a chiclet keyboard.

Gee, this will have the SP layout! Now, if we could figure what language and/or country this code corresponds to...
Spoiler:
Hint: SP corresponds to no country code and no language code either — it's probably meant to refer to ES... yeah, this inspires so much confidence ("cofidence"?) in the product...

This all is giving me a headache, from the branding to the poor formatting of your post to the hyperbolic language. Also if you spent so much time on developing each part then why did you go with the same gamer-y lasered keycaps as every cheap alibaba keyboard?

More like 15 minutes of infamy, amirite?

I kinda feel bad (if slightly) for the actual engineers on this particular project, who now have to see their product being ridiculed because of the incompetence of a dumbass marketer...

I find it odd that someone pledged 1k$ for a full metal custom "Royal Edition" with zero mention / pictures on the kickstarter page.

Gee, I had a flashback to that movie... King Ralph. In particular, the scene where he resigns. :mrgreen:

Featured on Deskthority!.. by its own goddamn manufacturer.

Drevo, 'featured in' sections mean that someone else bothered to write an article on a website about your product. Your own posts don't count. Same with your own reddit post:

I don't think that usage of the Deskthority logo is legal ... maybe Webwit can file a complaint with Kickstarter.

Don't think we can do anything about it. Kickstarters do this all the time.

Is "penultimate" acceptable? Or "the one before the end-game"? :twisted:

My girlfriend calls all my keyboards "end game", as in "is it your end game already !?"

All right, then. That's what I shall be naming my SKB60 ortho (when I do build it, of course).

This because it shall be, incredibly, my first foray into ortholinear keyboards.

Better yet it is just a screen grab from the header. lol worthy. I don't think any of the logos are logos of publications.

Maybe because I kept calling them out for their shitty advertising tactics (see: keyboards-f2/blademaster-keyboard-comes ... 18721.html) but I'm offended I didn't get mentioned. :evil:

I don't think I've even been happier than now for having my account here be a handle rather than my true name. The nerve these guys have!

Thanks. I need to say the knob on Logitech really has more tech. It is the example we need to learn from them. But I will promise the blademaster mechanical will never let you down with a reasonable price.
