Just curious, what keys specifically are not truly mechanical on the K90? And if anyone else knows, please answer. Thanks. smile.gif

The red ones are not mechanical.

I don't really use most of these key,m (besides DEL and ESC) but I do think that for this price, the board should have been completely mechanical.

Reds aren't loud at all.

I didn't think I would, and I probably wont use them. But the options out there.

That's what I've read, that's why I decided to go with reds over blues. Thanks for the input. thumb.gif

Cool, thanks for the info +rep. Good point about the price, but still looks like a great keyboard. Definitely leaning towards the reds.

Don't get me wrong, this is a great keyboard. I love the looks of it, the led light, its design etc. And man that brushed aluminum looks damn good.

Yeah, if you really need them they're there. Just be careful buying them, getting the right type for your need. I got three sets to figure out which I'd like on my Reds but turned out I didn't like any of them on my red switches as far as I could tell haha. Still need to try them out again now that I have 3 keyboards with Reds tongue.gif

If you can't be kind, be vague... 2cents.gif

Look down. Now back up. You're on a forum, with the man your man could surf like.

What's in your hand? Now back to me. Look what I have. It's 7 tabs of porn open on the computer you love.

LOOK AGAIN. THE TABS ARE NOW DIAMONDS.

Anything is possible when your man surfs OCN, and not porn. I'm on a horse.

Reposting in case anyone here knows the answer. Figure my best bet is Akimbo but haven't seen him post too recently.

Just received my Leopold Cherry MX Blue keyboard!





I've only used rubber dome so this is my first mechanical keyboard and I just love the click it makes. For others that want to know about the "mushy" keys on the Leopolds, I can only tell that the Caps Lock, the left Shift (right Shift feels normal), and the Delete key are slightly more resistive than the rest of the keys. The Space bar feels the same to me like every other key, but then again, I've only experienced rubber dome keyboards.

Did someone call me?

The Unicomp keys will work with a model M. However, Unicomp's dyesubs are not as sharp as NOS IBM dyesubs (i.e. the Unicomp key cap letters are a tad bit blurrier than NOS IBM key caps....but it's barely noticeable). If you want new, old stock IBM keys check out clickykeyboards.com

Any particular place to find the NOS IBMs? Is it a vendor like Unicomp? +rep for the reply thumb.gif
