honestly i dunno why people get all bent out of shape on the markups on groupbuy keys, but are totally fine for the markup on click clack keys.

Or the fact im sure the SC2 keycaps did not cost what people are selling them for now ($10 a key)

So, I have been wanting to join this club for a while, but could not afford the keyboard upgrade yet. Due to some interesting chance, we were cleaning out our old storage room at work, I found an old mechanical keyboard!

It is a compaq mx 11800, and I estimate its age to be about 8-12 years old. I believe the keyboard to have been in service for approximately 5 years. Now, interestingly enough thanks to our computer administrative policies, I estimate the actual use to probably approximately 6-12 months of regular use or less. This keyboard boasts cherry MX browns, precisely what i was looking for, and in the picture you can also see there is a trackball(optical biggrin.gif). It was originally placed in a rack mount terminal unit, but due to everything getting written off and thrown away, jackpot to me smile.gif.

Eventually I will be looking to purchase a new keyboard with a standard layout, as this one is quite awkward, but my nerdgasm will not subside for weeks as this has certainly scratched my itch. My only complaint is that my motherboard does not have any PS/2 inputs!359

Or people that sell filcos above retail rolleyes.gif

Its yours or their chose to do what they want. Imo its just a little lame to start selling keys the day they come in at 300-400% mark up. Later down the road when they are hard to find is different to me. But thats just me.

i didn't sell it above retail rolleyes.gif
u know my cost, i sold it exactly the same cost that keyboardco was selling on amazon.
Not my fault amazon's got shipping deals with UPS for discount shipping =P

Besides again, its what the seller sets his prices at. If you're not interested, there's no reason to argue about it.

Rag was selling his extra triforce keys for those who didn't initially order and nyancat sets before the order was shipped out to him at higher costs than the group buy, don't see a problem with it.

Its an obsession of keyboards/keycaps, whatever someone's willing to pay for it is the cost. Im sure you're holding onto rare keycaps or you'd ask for fair market value on keycaps you have, and not sell at the group buy cost.

Sure to each is own. But the price of a filco in the US is $140 shipped. Anything above that imo is gouging. But screw it if someone is willing to pay it.

And sure if I had some click clacks I'd sell them for whatever I could get to a point. Some people just want to bleed every dime out of the community. Some like to help others so everyone is happy. Yesterday a guy offered me $30 + shipping for the stock caps of the quick fire. I thought that was kind of high so I charged him $30 shipped and we were both happy. And I was still stoked to get that much.

Not saying I'm some great guy but what goes around comes around. A guy on GH sent me a free doubleshot geek hack key because I said I would like to get an orange one in one of the threads. THought that was pretty cool. You can spot the people that just want to make a buck and there stuff will usually sit for a while.
