The Decks feel fine, the font is just unusual.

Obviously the Deck are the "best" of the choices, especially with lots of gaming in mind.

What keyboard do you have now?

I don't have one of those lying around, unfortunately. I'll look around for a puller then.

Looking for an adapter to plug my old PS/2 IBM Model M, I've read about problems with keys not registering when using certain adapters or roll over n? Could someone inform me what type of adapter I should be using? (Ps/2 to usb). Been looking online at adapters and here's what I've come up with:

edit: I also heard things like this can happen

Yea, you can't do this like CTRL+C CTRL+V, or CTRL+ALT+DEL with this keyboard. It will only respond to the first keystroke and ignore the rest as long as the first is still held down.

they used to make Deck 21 Keypads to compliment the Deck 82.

pictures are hard to come by but here is the layout.



Quote:
Overall dimensions: 3.7” x 6” x 1.5”
Weight: 0.75 pounds

The keyboard functions similar to the numeric keypad on any other keyboard; the most noticeable difference is backlighting. The keyboard has 8 levels of brightness: “0” through “7” with “0” being off and “7” being full brightness. Their brightness level is changed by first holding down the “Fn” key down (it’s located in the upper right-hand corner of the keypad), then press either “0” for “off”, or “1” – “7” for the “on” brightness levels.

There is an additional “pulsing” backlighting mode that cycles the backlighting from “0” to “7” repetitively. This mode is entered by an “Fn” +”8” keystroke combination. It is exited by pressing any key; no data is sent to the computer when this key is pressed. The backlighting level returns to a pre-pulse mode level.

No information will be sent to the computer while the “Fn” key is held down and the “0” or “1” – “8” keys are pressed. In other words, the keyboard doesn’t tell the PC these keys are being pressed. It also doesn’t matter which key you release first. However, any other key press will be reported to the PC regardless of the state of the “Fn” key.

The keypad includes three multi-media keys for volume control of the computer.

This keypad is a USB hub with a single downstream port on its backside. Although the keypad is powered by the USB bus through the data cord, it tells the computer that it is self-powered so that the downstream port can provide more than 100mA to power devices like the Deck 82 key keyboard. Therefore, only 500mA maximum can be drawn from the keypads hardwired data cord for the keypad and whatever is connected to the downstream port. You may wish to shorten your Deck 82 key data cord when connecting it to the keypad via the USB port. To do so, remove the bottom cover from your Deck 82 key using a Phillips head screwdriver and coil a portion of the data cord to remain inside. Then reinstall the bottom cover. Finally, if a Deck 82 key keyboard is connected to the downstream port, the brightness level must be set on each unit independently. They do not communicate their brightness levels to each other due to the nature of the USB bus.

Are Deck's keycaps Cherry style or Costar style? Especially in regards to how the spacebar, enter, and other large keys are mounted/stabilized.
