But but, that the point of getting IBM keyboards
It feels vintage, old, you have no idea what sort of fingers has typed on it, what stuff has gotten into it, and mine probably has traveled around the world lol

And by stuff I mean stuff

Here we go best I could do with my phone. Unbranded QFR w/blues and imsto thick pbt caps.

You can see better pics of this board in my profile. But that is actually a different one. I sold that one a while ago and missed it so much I had to reproduce it. This time with an unbranded case which looks much better imo.

I wouldn't call the switches better, but I would say that the CM keyboard altogether could have been better, and also that MX blues should never be used as space bars. I think I just find this keyboard a lot easier to type on because of the heavier switches; I feel like I can be a lot more accurate on heavier switches.

MX Greens are used for space bars on MX Blue boards sometimes IIRC.

That would be nice as well, but I haven't actually found any keyboards like that. Also, I just like the feel of a heavy switch over a lighter switch, like the blue switch.

Very popular to see this in Ducky keyboards. All my Blue Duckies have a Green Spacebar.

Do you want a really good tip to save money on Ducky or Filco?

Whenever you visit the States, go online and buy the product while in the States and have it sent to your house via USPS. When you purchase from Canada, the system automatically changes the prices to the "premium, border crossing" shipping prices. But if you pay for it while in the States, the system automatically connects to the original US to Canada prices which costs around $20 cheaper than its Canadian counter part.

Also, USPS because first, they are actually smart enough to realize that putting a rug over a 4 yard box won't stop burglars or throw packages across my damn gate, and it also bypasses the "extra" fees that UPS/Fedex demand from their customers. This is due to the fact that USPS is the national postal service for the US and they are exempt from certain fees that "premium" freighters have to pay.
