  1. Wipe the keytops and casing down with a clean cloth, dampened with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. Pay extra attention to any keys that you might be using the most frequently, such as WASD.
  • Note: On Filcos, use water instead of Alcohol. Filcos have a special coating on them that gets ruined if you use it.

Thanks for that information, saved my k/b!

I think later in the afternoon I will be running and picking up at least 2 to 4 more of these Scorpius 305 keyboard set ups...
I've been using the one I got yesterday since I brought it home and its really starting to grow on me.

I think I finally found a mechanical keyboard with just the right amount of tension on the tactile feed back...
I have a Cherry keyboard with brown switches, and I find that to be to light. Another keyboard I have is a Filco 10 keyless Zero and the tactile breaking point seems a little heavy on it....

The left handed board I picked up on craigslist for $20, Has a really good feel to it too... But, I think that will be going with me to wherever I end up working.A4cuK6jhbtGlk42a4lMnXw?feat=directlink
1qI7RzDDhC6Y3yxs8oTl2g?feat=directlink
I will be bringing my key puller with me this time when I go pick up a couple more of the Scorpius 305 keyboards... I read somewhere that its possible for them to come with Cherry Blue switches... (Is there any truth to that? Is it possible that they come with blue switches too?)

The following edits should be made to Modern Mechanical Keyboards.
1. Black Widow normal does not have a USB hub nor audio passthrough.
2. Rosewill RK-9000 has lasered keys I believe.
3. Various Cherry G80s (such as the 10+ G80-8113HRBUS-2 w/ Clears or Browns currently available on Ebay) should be added.
4. ASK-6600 (which is the same as ACK-6600 apparently) should be added.
5. DSI left handed should be added.
6. DSI Mac Keyboard with Cherry MX blue or brown should be added.
7. [URL="htthttp://cgi.ebay.com/PLU-ML-87-Mechanical-Tenkeyless-CherryMX-Brown-keyboard-/110669379653?pt=PCA_Mice_Trackballs&hash=item19c468b845p://"]PLU ML-87[/URL] and Noppoo Choc Mini should be added.

I'm staying away from Ebay or Obook boards just because that can be more hassle than it's worth and not always available.

Some G80's will be added as they are on Newegg.

Edit's, Fixes, Updates, Etc to come around mid-april. I said earlier that I've got very little time right now between working to buy a new car, and school.

All input is welcome though thumb.gif

Can someone edit the post w/ keyboards by switch type and add Deck to the cherry clear section?

Also, is there a difference in using a PS/2 keyboard vs USB keyboard w/ a PS/2 adapter? I'm thinking about getting a Deck w/ USB cable and just grabbing an adapter instead of getting it w/ the native PS/2 cable.

The Deck doesn't support USB to PS/2 adapters for some odd reason.

That being said, it's highly unlikely you will need more then the 6 key rollover on the legend over USB.

Getting a PS/2 or USB Deck thread is here.

The OP was a better man for going USB.
