Yes, but new Model M's still look old.

Interesting concept, but i'd be too lazy (and busy, but mostly lazy) to mod a keyboard. My uncle would be drooling over that tho.

This is fugly


This is not
Meh, looks, even tho they're the base of people purchases, are not all. I would not mind if my board was beige or white or looks from the 80's, as long as i can enjoy using it.

As i said before, i do like the feeling of bucking springs over ewdomes, but i was looking for a soft switch, but not silent, or too loud, that's why i chose MX Blues over MX Browns. What i did agree with OP is that some people get recommended a switch without knowing, or just buy a mechanical board for the hype, but they do not know what they're getting into. Just today a friend came to play at home, and he greatly disliked my MX Blues, because he likes hard boards (model M came to mind for him).

If one does buy something, anything, without doing some research first, has no right to complain if you does not like what you bought.

About used stuff, i've got no complaints at all. My (lightly used) U9W went through a screwdriver, cloth and alcohol before i started using it. Fully unmounted and cleaned every key, the metal plate, and cover. Reassembled, and it works fine

Honestly I think that the spacesaver M's look pretty sweet. I'd love to have one.

Unicomps have the advantage of that modern computer interface called USB.


I recommend modding the stupid label though.

can't have NKRO with USB tho

Model Ms are 2KRO PS/2 or USB.

Plus Model Ms don't work on many modern PS/2 motherboard connectors.

This is ironic since the Model M and PS/2 were introduced together over 25 years ago.

Dear n1 keyboard expert in the planet... more than ironic is blatantly false, given the model Ms were introduced in 1985 and the PS/2 PC and connectors in 1987.

^He speaks truth. Early Model Ms used AT, XT, or proprietary terminal protocols over RJ45 before IBM settled on PS/2.
