This needs to be on stickers and a line of t-shirts.

Wow, haven't seen this thread for months now.

But I pulled this board out today and it looks no where as cool as I remember it. In fact, I gotta nominate it here:

I mean it's got nice components. The keycaps are super unique and it has the coveted creams. But typing on it feels like garbage. I guess it goes to show that a nice keyboard isn't just the sum of its parts.

A lot of people think the switches only is only component of a keyboard that matters but that is not true at all.

A shame about the lousy key feel. I rather like the way it looks.

Those stickers on the MacAlly keyboard look like they are for the video editing program Avid.
Looks are not a priority.

Clearly they weren't - just look at that hideous transparent, ridged case! D:

Pink and white colourway, Japanese legends AND an oversized Hello Kitty artisan? Best GB ever!

By far the ugliest board I've seen,but I do love that the owner uses it,the notches on the keys for the Numpad layer are a very nice touch.

Continuing the pink theme. A good old keyboard for blondes. Some of the buttons can talk:

And apparently someone has even created a website in an attempt to tell the world this product should not exist:

BTW, that's not a BAE — it's a GAE. And no wonder that right Shift is 3U long: it needs to be that big to support the GAE's weight.

The board underneath the stickers looks decent though, Alps?

I quite like it too. And judging by the wrinkles, it's only wrapped with film - so certainly reversible.

There are no such things as ugly keyboards, only ugly typists. [translated ancient proverb]

Just kidding. My entrant is this:

Not only does it look hiiiideous - clearly yellowed with age, with illegible key printing - but the keys are mushy, the caps are sticky, and the body is both light (lighter than even an Apple alumininininum keyboard) and flimsy.

Finally a keyboard worthy of the Chocolatier keycap set. ;)

Also, the manufacturer specs maple syrup as the sole approved lubricant for some reason.

I can't use that. I need an ISO version.
