[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 3468

post #34671 of 36906
Found 2 Dell mechanical keyboards (AT101W & AT102W) for €2.50 each + shipping, which I believe use Black Alps switches.

Are they worth buying or is maintenance and cleaning going to more trouble than its worth?

Definitely buy them, if nothing else you can resell them.

Thanks, guess I'll maybe clean one up and flip the other.

Lol "only 850$"

yeah, I think i'm breaking a new record with my home board. I think i've finally hit the $500 mark for a single board.

The most I've ever paid is ¥12.500 which is part of that list, go figure. smile.gif

I just dropped $380ish (that doesn't even include shipping) on Taobao for new board parts yesterday. Two cases, two alu plates, a purple pcb (so excited about that one), and a big handful of MX Greens I'm lookin to put some 62g springs in.

Oh, and a Gen 1 (better case, IMO) run of one of these beauties with a gorgeous purple anodized case. Only $200, too, which is a steal considering they originally went for ~$300 and there aren't that many of them out there.

As it stands, though, I'm dropping way too much money on boards and I'm gonna have to start selling some off soon. I can't decide whether I want to sell my Pok3r with the Clears or the one with my black-spring Blues, though. I love them both so much....

I've been mulling over a poker, building a 60% from the ground up and looking a new switches... All while I just dropped money on another 560 radiator, two gtx 970's and parts for my daughter's rig... I understand your pain.

I've got about 300 in my Poker so it maybe cheaper to build.

Anyone know what import duty from China to the US is like? I'm a little worried I'm gonna get hit pretty hard when the stuff I got off Taobao gets to customs. I know (or at least think) that there's no duty on computers and computer parts, but does that keep true for things like the keyboard cases I got, since they're technically(?) a computer part?

Don't know, but the duty from china to Belgium is pretty low, can't imagine China to US being any higher. So I wouldn't worry about it.

Unless you are ordering $800+ you will usually be just fine on customs.
