He'd have to send the keyboard out to imav to cleanup, relube, restore.

Rick'll give you $5.00 for it.
:/ Well I guess I will take 5 dollars, it was more than I walked into the store with today so I am pretty happy.

Maybe a bit rare?


greets

The production years of the basic G80-1000 were 1987-2001. I'm guessing that the variant layouts were manufactured earlier -- another variant layout with a 1984 production model stamp is in the wiki's gallery.

As to value, I'd guess it would be less valuable than a Qwerty board just because it's not a very common layout and the market is therefore smaller. Probably worth less than a Model M, maybe $35 or 40 shipped if someone was really interested.

I recommend you clean it up some and keep it, or sell it and get a more traditional layout, assuming QWERTZ keyboards aren't common in Germany. It's a nice relic and it's still just as good as when it was manufactured.
I got into computer stuff within the past 400 days when I did a RAM upgrade on my laptop. I have:

-Made my rig
-Got a mech keyboard (well, two, but one was a gift)
-Upgraded my laptop's CPU
-Purchased three SSDs (since June, I might add)
-Purchased two HDDs (I posses more SSDs than HDDs, what of it?)
-Got a floppy drive setup (I blame ASRock - they gave a port that needed to be filled)
-Crossfired (it seemed like fun)

Cost? I'd prefer not to think about it, but ~$1400 seems right. And now I want a single Black switch to mutilate for its spring or Green switch. I need a soldering pump and third hand too. I've been messing with some Lego electronics too and what I have now is not cutting it.

I guess if you put it like that I have too.

I've spent over $2000 in the past year due to OCN, but that's spread out all over the place.

Built my first rig around the time I joined OCN, bought my first mech keyboard, bought my first set of nice headphones, bought my first proper mic, etc.

I have ADD that way--just get my feet wet in a bunch of different categories. Spend a few hundred on audio, but still no desktop amp or dac.
Buy a nice mechanical keyboard, but no custom keycaps.
Buy a decent USB mic, but didn't get into proper mics and a recording interface.

I have commitment issues, lol.

Yeah this is pretty much how the show goes.
Pretty sad if people are actually selling things for 1/25th the actual value.

Although I've heard before that a lot of the time it's just collectors who get asked to bring their stuff in, and they don't actually sell it to the shop.
Not sure if that's true or not, but it'd make more sense.

I'd pay a fair amount for it, old blacks that are probably broken in very nicely, the keycaps look to be in good shape, and put those caps and switches in a modern board and it would make a pretty sweet keyboard.

Was kinda' sad there were no deals on QFR boards.

its already worth its msrp price anyway, and you can find them on amazon for $10 cheaper anyway.
post #19557 of 36943

True enough, but I always like to get the best deal I can. ;)

there's always used, I have no issues buying a used board, they clean up easy and if broken are easy to fix. though I rarely find them under $50 no matter what their MSRP was.

Haha. I still need a somewhat decent audio setup, and at least a headset. I don't think I'll get a full set, but I want a set of blue and white arrow keys to replace WASD on my Rosewill keyboard.

Yeah, I can vouch for them as well. Just got my Quickfire Stealth with MX-Green switches. Loving it. These MX-Greens are pretty stiff compared to MX-Blues, but they're nice. Giving my fingers a workout.
