Cuz if they are, they should like, sell it through DT for $405 instead of giving eBay a 10% fee (':

From the keycaps and the pink leds it should have Fujitsu Leaf Spring switches, but I'm not 100% sure

It looks like it sat in the exact same position, exposed to the sun at a specific angle for years! Look at the yellowing pattern on the keycaps. Very interesting.

Not bad, 80 bucks for a new keyboard with SMK Alps switches (aka Monterey switches)

Don't know about the price but a Marquard Mini-Ergo doesn't appear every day, I think: https://www.ebay.de/itm/323850760446

You're right, they don't, the pingy monsters! Mine sounded too unpleasant plus the width of the split didn't agree with me. I do love their overall design / shape, though, hence it's been my avatar pic here for ages (together with its quite rare sidekick numpad - I'd love to collect one of those...).

Very old ("Made in W. Germany") Preh Commander board. Interesting US layout with ISO enter, A1000-like arrow block, and possibly programmable keys.

I bought one of these from the same seller a few months ago. It has some sort of dome with slider switch I haven't seen anywhere else. It's very snappy and feels pretty nice, but kinda heavy. It has nice doubleshot keycaps, but they're kinda thin.

Tandon 286 laptop, screams ALPS to me, but so far no nudie shot from seller. Unless he delivers, I'd consider it for maybe half the price...

uh..... f77!?
I... uhhh... yes? It totally seems to be. Made in the UK (that looks like a first), and with dual Greek keycaps (not that suprising, given the seller seems to be Greek). Only the date (28-03-1996) looks to be a bit weird.

The hunt for more 4704 units outside of USA is ON!

anyone here snag it? That price, while insane for one keyboard, seemed good for what it is.

Not me, that's for certain! I'd guess not even Mr. Duul would get it at that price!

:lol: Yeah and he seems to be selling them off rather than acquiring more. I think maybe he hit endgame and lost interest perhaps.
