What's the list for anyways?
It's not very useful, and it serves to give a ton of headaches to the TS.

Plus some guy who never post in here just come in and say, hey, "I bought a mechanical keyboard, please add me to the list". And then what happens, what's the point of that at all?

Other than allowing you to show off your e-peen, without pictures at that, there's no purpose at all.
I mean, if you want to show off e-peen, you should be posting the pictures of your keyboard, no?

You are right about the passion, but the list is a long tradition from the previous threads,
and some person are following the thread that do not post often but they read often,
we will have the chance to know what keyboards they have, if they choose to be listed too.
*
Because it is tradition you must do it instead of evaluating what's the point of actually doing it?
Right, someone wants to open the first page and figure out how many person owns this keyboard or that keyboard. *sarcasm* Sounds fun to me. *sarcasm*

If you want people to know what keyboards you have, your sig is pretty damn fine. And you can maintain it yourself instead of asking TS to "please add me to the list".

For all I know, the way it works now is that some guy bought a shiny new keyboard, either comes in and say "hey, I bought a shiny keyboard, please add me" and never to return. Or just PM-ing the TS to do the same thing and never coming in to contribute to any discussion at all.

We should value discussion, and whatever value that can be added to this thread instead of telling the world how many people "was here" when he/she bought a keyboard.

Well, what you said is right, but I do check the front page for how many people owns a specific keyboard and I'll ask here if it's actually that good and I might get it. The list helps me too, I actually PM'd a few specific people to ask about brand because a few times when I posted here, no one replied to my post. It's like knowing how many people actually owns a mechanical keyboard and how famous it is compared to other keyboards, and not just how luxurious it is, but hey, if that's how you think, that's how you think right? I'm not gonna argue about it, but I guess you should take the list down if it's really troublesome for the OP. Whatever works, works!  thumbup.gif

Another name suggestion for this thread - Pimp my mechanical keyboard!  rclxms.gif

I agree with kyrmian, I bought my first mechanical keyboard which is the filco because I see many users in the list and I PMed a few of them to ask for opinions...

I hope to pimp my mech keyboard too but currently only ordered a nyancat backspace, because I have other gadgets to take care of tongue.gif

Soon will get new set of keycaps when my budget is better~

As convenient at is it, is there a reason why Realforce and Filco choose not to have detachable cables? hmm.gif
*
It's a design consideration.

You should ask 90% of the keyboard manufacturers why they don't choose to have detachable cables.

For one thing, before you get into this hobby, you'd only have 1 keyboard. Why would you want a keyboard that can be detached easily if you have a keyboard? Take in mind 99% of the people out there use whatever they have on their laptop/office desk etc. They wouldn't want to bring their keyboards to work.

Then you have those people who bring their aircraft carrier logitechs to CC.

Together, we are the 1%. 1% might be a too high percentage.

Red on white, Thin fonts are alright.
For red on black, need thicker fonts to look nice.

btw kai, are we really have no way of obtaining any korean made aluminium keyboards?
PS: the sanctuary keycaps sample, if you look from distant, you cant even tell its font design, i also agreed that the fonts need thicker design...  sweat.gif

Yes you can.
Register at KBDMania, and wait for announcement.
As soon as the group buy is open, put in your name.

Now you gotta find someone to help you pay him with a korean bank account, and that person would have to help ship the item to you.

That's 'The Cheat'
Aluminum Custom, but different build/structure compared to the KMAC.
Plus the extra winkey/app key is there making it a 86 key keyboard.

Colors I've seen are, Red Silver Red, Black Red Black, and Black Silver Black. I think someone has an all red Cheat, but I can't recall his nickname.

KMAC winkeyless are 84 key keyboards

EDIT:
For those looking for MJ2 Red Switch. They have been available at Taobao for quite a while already. Available in Ninja/Normal/White versions. Price is similar or higher than the old Linear R Limited Edition.

UK's keyboard is taxed IIRC, which make them pricier.

Filco Linear R is a limited edition board(their first and only RED switch board back then) which is launched back in 2011. Its stock quickly got cleared out(in foreign countries) and the price start to jack up, and it should be pretty hard/impossible to find new stock by now.

However, Filco recently(around March/April 2012 IIRC) launched their new Red switch board, which fall under normal Majestouch 2 model. Not sure whether local distributors start carry them already or not though. sweat.gif

Not to mention that even the indicators LED also having exactly the same color, Linear R buyers got trolled by Diatec. whistling.gif


Added on August 18, 2012, 1:58 pm
Filco do have a "Ferrari" red case keyboard b4, not sure whether still available now though.

May be you can check armygroup/inpad whether they still carry them.

Else way, you can buy aftermart case from taobao if you are really that despo, LOL.
*
Price for new mj2 red is same or higher than Linear R.
I paid for mine at a price lower than the current Taobao price. I aint even mad.

Those that paid higher than market price are losing out, however.

Regardless, the normal price did not differ much.
For a FILCO fan like me, being able to get a red switch almost 1 year earlier than majestouch 2 for about the same price, what did I loose?

Don't know how much the interasia will charge for the red when they come in, but the money has already been spent.

If you want the build quality, the quick fire rapid is already available for so long now.

Other than putting the word limited in an obviously (un)limited version, What else did they do wrong?

Pics don't work?
I think you meant the red alert set. Original set is very limited and have some custom legends.
Ragnarock made set went fr $60 and extra with the red mod set. So expect to pay upwards of $100 for this set because nobody is going to keep the white mods if they sell you the red mod set.

Start a wtb thread at geekhack and youncan get a better chance of obtainng it

is there more than 87 keys for the base kit?
at least his post doesn't mentioned this......

hmmmmm......
I have a FC500R red switch and thinking of letting go.....
I was originally wanted to wait for the Sanctuary to reach me before I decide that....
are you interested?

All gb in this formula has 104 keys as a separate keyset.
Base set is 87 key. $80 is high. Was $60 but impossible someone will sell for that low.

To my knowledge, no. Unless you don't remove it properly, such as using your fingers.
But my POKER have been through about 10 key changes, and I don't see it having any issues.
