Yet no attribution to the writers on OCN that they did Cut & Paste from.

Ripster; if you want, PM the photos that need a watermark and I'll add them in. I just used the original photos hosted on OCN. I'll just rehost them and put them into the guide.

Sure, I'll send updated pics.

But I don't see any Copy Pasta myself. The writing is much better. And there are plenty of other Mechanical Keyboard Guides like the one I wrote!

Hi everyone.
I found this nameless mechanical keyboard for about 10$ and Im wondering if I should buy it. The adapter to ps2 port wil coast me another 2$. Now the only thing that is holding me back is not the one missing key cap, but that I dont know if it is possible to clean the keyboard. As you can see from the keys and the front panel have that so common for very old keyboards yellowish tone, is it possible for this to be cleaned be it in dishwasher or with bleach or with something else ? Maybe I can sand the key caps with very fine sand paper or will it erase the letters and symbols ? Even if it is not is it worth it to get this beast, I will use it to play StarCraft 2.
Here are pics

That's an alps board; as for cleaning, try doing the spacebar first.

If it was in a smoke heavy environment, then it's gonna be a very hard task to un-tinge the board.

If you do plan to take your time to throughly clean it up, i'd buy it since it's cheap. IMHO, any switch beats rubber domes. I have never tried Alps switches tho.

Simplified Alps for $10? Can't really go wrong.
Clean Up should be worth the cost considering everything works.

Replied and I'll be updating photos in a moment.

Interesting fact of the day; the new Ducky DK-1008 & Rosewill RK-9000 are the same board.
More on this later if I can spit out a review for it. I still need to write the DK-9008-S review (Ducky Shine for those that don't recognize the model number.)

Tator Tot and Starbomba, thanks for the advices. I bought the board, cleaned it up. Still the plastic has turned yellow, so yellow that you might think that the board is just yellow. Once I got past this fact, the kbd is quite nice, its comfortable and all the switches work perfectly. I might mod when I have the time.
