Just been talking to this old friend and apparently she's a massive mechanical keyboard maniac too. biggrin.gif

Edited.... Brain fart on currency abbreviation.

Wut.

Either Google is wrong (totally possible) or $700 HKD is $90.27 USD. Which after pay shipping and export does not seem like a deal at all.

I'm confused, or likely missing something.

I should explain. It's not as a good deal as the previous NewEgg QF Stealth deal, or an amazing deal in its own. However.

When taken into consideration my source of economy (UK) and the lack of accessibility to a QF Stealth in the UK, this is considered a deal for ME. The only way I can get a QF Stealth online is eBay from US, which along with Shipping and Import charges, it'll almost double the price in the end. Whereas if I get my friend's deal, depending on the type of switch, about $600 to $700 HKD, and maybe get some cheap shipping, it'll end up cheaper, in a way.

Currency rate is the same, yes. BUT spending GBP in HK economy is quite good when the time is right. (when it is £1 to $16 HKD, instead of £1 to $11 or $13 HKD most times.)

Still, I'm only considering it. biggrin.gif

Google is not wrong. According to some laws, HKD and USD exchange rates are always locked a 1:7 point something. Whereas GBP to USD/HKD can fluctuate. thumb.gif (Oh them Hong Kong Economy lessons are coming back...)

That's my goal. I'm hunting for some keycaps from a QF Stealth. Don't think you can buy them from CM but trying to find a broken one or something like that.

You can't, make a WTB: thread on geekhack or something.

I know you can find some white front prints on ebay, and i'm sure if you look you can find some black front prints online.

There was a guy selling the white front print caps for $43 on ebay but they appear to be sold out. Not sure about white blank keycaps though, might get dirty too fast.
