|Keyswitches||USw LMBW02 (Return Key)|
|Keycaps||Tai-Hao TH series (double-shot moulding, silkscreen printing)|
Tai-Hao TH-5160 is one of Tai-Hao's oldest keyboards.
The case of TH-5160 resembles that of SKB-5150C but there are some subtle differences between the two: TH-5160 lacks the stepped caps lock keycap.
The keycaps are similar to the ones on the Chicony KB-5170.[Citation needed] The standard ANSI keys are double-shot moulded, and the region-specific keycaps are pad-printed. These Cherry-style Tai-Hao TH series keycaps were also manufactured by Tai-Hao, and are reported to be Tai-Hao profile instead of Cherry profile. The layout is F AT, but it lacks the stepped keycaps.
According to Tai-Hao, the switches were sourced from a long-defunct Japanese manufacturer whose name may be "Katano". TH-5150 is their only keyboard to use these switches. The space bar features an all white version of the switch with heavier weighting.
Like other similarly-named keyboards, 5160 likely derives from the model number of the original IBM Personal Computer (IBM model 5150).
