[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 921

post #9201 of 14566
I decided to make the switch from rubber dome to a mechanical.

I was going to get the new Razer keyboard but the lycosa really put a bad taste in my mouth for razer.

I have decided to get the XArmor U9BL but i am concerned with the rubber coating after what happened to my Lycosa.

Does anyone have any expreience with this keyboard that con give some insight to the coating on the keycaps? I like the keyboard but "rubber coating" makes me nervous to buy it.

Its slightly rubber coated. I haven't used mine long enough to see any wear though. (Not a big fan of rubber coating :\\)

I am watching at the "Key Printing Methods" section, but there seem to be some omissions.

Why stop at double shot when you can go triple?

WHY STOP THERE? Quadruple-shot.

I don't think MyKBD pic quality is quite up to our Guides standards.

What happened to my pics watermarks?

Those are not your pics, they belong to OCN. Better write for permission if you want to use them. By the way, these Koreans (like quad boy MyKBD) are nuts, here's some guy flashing a broken keyboard.

I find that OTD site difficult to read but filled with inscrutable Asian pics.

I honestly don't know; I've never even considered trying to find out.

Um.., yes. He's replying to this post:

http://www.overclock.net/keyboards/4...l#post11142423

Then in my reply, I specifically mentioned a purple USB to PS/2 adapter. So yes: he is continuing from that discussion.

This does not mean that I am oblivious to your question. I know you asked it, and I understand that you were asking for a PS/2 to USB adapter.

I see. My bad. Just wasn't sure based on the context of multiple similar questions.

There are better threads than that on the Korean keyboard forums. I have a new unfulfilled triple shot keycap obsession. I trolled signature plastics earlier and asked them if they could do something like that, but they did not answer my email. When I sent a second email, they did not answer that either. Melissa sucks. She'll realize this herself once I flash my expensive triple shot key caps on the internets, and raving review of the company which managed to do it, while mentioning signature plastics didn't even answer.

Belkin's USB adapter is readily available from a lot of common online retailers around the world, and is actually a better USB adapter than the Blue Cube. More expensive though.
