Hnnnnnnnng, Osaka to England in two days, so fast.
Where is Osaka? Japan?
Is the HH worth the money, in your opinion?
From a switch point of view, it just feels like a rubberdome if a rubberdome wasn't shit, it's got a spongy feel combined with the tactileness of a cherry switch, it's very strange, apparently it takes some getting used to and most people who go Topre have a hard time going back after a week or so, so I can't really comment on that yet.
At the minute I'd say no, $300 can get you a lot of things and blowing it all on a keyboard feels a little insane considering you get get a quality keyboard for $100, I feel that part of the price is just to say "oh you have a Black widow? Well I have a happy hacking" which gets very old very fast.
It does have a nice feel to it but I've never tried any cherry for more than a few minutes, I'll be getting a cherry blue KBT Race 75% in a couple weeks or so, so I can do a direct comparison once it comes and I'll probably end up choosing which I want to keep and selling the other.
Does anyone from the UK know where you can find a shop selling these, i'd love to give one a try before I look to spend any cash.
Hello, does anyone in sweden have a spare IBM Model M somewhere? I've been looking for one for quite some time, but i'm unable to find one. I've never really liked any modern keyboard, and i've been using these two old keyboards, one is AST, and the other one is HP.
Here's the two keyboards.
Here's the back of the HP keyboard.
Here's the back of the AST keyboard.
Here's how the AST keyboard buttons look like.
And here's my IBM 6781 type-writer! It's perfectly working, but it's just that it's full of dust.
Here's the logo.
Here's how the buttons look like.
Now, i'm pretty sure that the ibm typewriter's keyboard is a ibm model m keyboard. If someone has a IBM model m here in sweden to spare, i'd really appreciate it if we could work something out.
That typewriter isn't a Model M. It looks more like a Model F to me.
Anyway, Model M's cost almost nothing depending on the condition.
Why would you need a Swedish layout? Can't you touch type?
For example: You could be using a UK keyboard but still type with a Swedish character set by telling Windows that it's actually a Swedish keyboard.
Still loving my black widow blue switches seem to be great for me still wish I could ave tried others but I'm happy
I have a Mechanical Keyboard, only costed me $12CA. Works great.
Surely thats a typo for 120
Seeing as the cheapest mech board going is 45 USD and uses knockoff Chinese switches, "Cherry Yellows" to be exact, it must be a typo.
Or he got conned.
Finally got my Filco! (Majestouch-2 with brown switches) It's really something else, coming from a measly G19. The keys are so nice and light. It's probably going to take some getting used to though, since I've adopted a pretty brutal typing style from only ever having used rubber dome keyboards. I also might have to get a wrist rest, as it's a bit weird not to have one after using the G19 for over a year.
I got the red esc and WASD keys, and it looks pretty nice i think:

He didn't typo. I got my Dell AT101W for $2 USD...
How many of you guys have a wrist rest for your keyboard? I'm kinda missing the wrist rest from my G19 at the moment. I can't quite hold my wrists on the table, and I can't really hold them up either. When i have them on the desk, I don't have the reach for the keys the pinkies need to press, and when I have my wrists in the air, I can't hit the keys right. My hands get a bit "lost" on the keyboard, and i end up constantly pressing the wrong keys, and falling out of the typing rythm.
I might go out and get one tomorrow. Do you guys think I should? I don't really see any of you with wrist rests in your pics, so I'm wondering if maybe I just need to adapt to typing like this.
edit: I think some of my issues might be simply because the keys themselves are smaller, and closer together on this keyboard. If I try to type a number without looking, I usually end up with either one number higher than I was looking for, or one number lower (depends on the which hand you would type the number with).
What would be a good gaming/typing keyboard on the cheap? Preferably shippable to Canada. Hopefully under 100$, but best if under 80$.
CM Storm quickfire?
I think the cheaper version of the Quickfire has blues and the one that's $10 more has reds, and the one with reds is only available on their website iirc
Do any manfacturers ship to Australia?
Whats the best way to get a keyboard from the US to Australia
Need to get rid of my Blue switches and get something with Browns..
You can also grab a seperate rubber dome numpad if it isn't too much of an inconvenience, otherwise a Cherry G80 or Filco with Blacks/Reds?
Cherry G80-3000s are your best bet.
