Fortunately, the clicks that the MX Blues make are quieter than the sound of bottoming out.

http://www.cherrycorp.com/english/ke...1800/index.htm
Link i found doesn't really give too much info, can't find any big reviews.
Is it a worthy buy?

Also for fun i also found a Cherry G86-71400 (LPOS) board that will cost me $50.00
Not Mechanical from what I can tell, but it'll be fun if i can program the POS buttons as macro keys.
http://www.cherrycorp.com/english/ke...erty/index.htm

The G81 uses Cherry MY switches, which are crap. The G86 is a rubber dome. The reprogrammability is nice, but I don't know if it's hardware or software.



The Cherry G80 / MX keyboards are what you need to look for. Or there's an SGI Granite on ebay for about $50 shipped, if that's still there that's what I'd pick.

This man is the only person who has ever properly caught the sound of a Model F on a recording. We salute you!

I love that Model F spacebar sound. KTHUNK CHUNK THUNK

@Manyak: Regarding the Das Model S in the OP, the Model S has now been updated. The media keys are gone and the Fn key is replaced by the original Windows key.

Yet another question from a nublet like me.
Planning on getting this Filco, like I said earlier: http://www.keyboardco.com/keyboard_d...sp?PRODUCT=763

My question is: does that keyboard have the same setup as that in the picture?
Meaning the size of enter, backspace and shift. Obviously, the other keys will be different, Ä/Ö/Å etc, but I need to know that it has that same layout otherwise. I keep seeing people here with Filcos that have the one row enter, like this:
(should probably ask this from the support of the keyboardco but w/e).

If you order the finnish layout, it should be a finnish layout. If it's not, then there will not be ÖÄÅ. If it is, there will be a short shift key, a big enter or a huge enter and ÖÄÅ at the right side. Some of the symbol buttons will also be in different places.

You should get the normal finnish layout, or one like this. You wouldn't want to pay 100+€ for a keyboard that you can't type in finnish on? If you don't order the finnish layout, you can't type finnish

That is my nordic (swedish+finnish) layout Steelseries 6Gv2

And this is my current Steelseries 7G: (small pic, I know)

Basically I want the same layout except for the big enter and small backspace.

Order a finnish layout: Big enter

Don't order a finnish layout: Can't type in finnish

Choose one.

Also: The american layout has A LOT of the buttons like >< buttons and ? & % ¤ $ buttons in a different place. Get a finnish layout, it will be best.

I AM ordering a finnish layout. That's for sure.
All I want to know is which kind of an enter does it come with?
This is how I want it:

WITH the Finnish layout including ÄÖÅ

If it comes with the HUGE enter like the 7G or the 6Gv2, I don't want it. If it comes with a enter like this:
I don't want it.

Get my question?
I just want to know does the finnish layout with that keyboard have a normal enter+backspace+shift. Thank you.
