Keyboard-Fi - Page 8

post #106 of 1607

Although I've mad respects for the Model M's, Das keyboards, and other such beautiful, mechanical monsters, I am typing this on a Logitech. A Dinovo Keyboard for laptops with amazing feel in the keyboard and a general sense of quality still, but it's utterly opposite of a Model M.

 

It's because I also have a Macbook, so really, getting an old-style keyboard is just going to annoy me when I switch between them.

 

But I've used quite a few keyboards (mostly Logitechs) and I like this one best. It feels nice and the keypresses are pretty sure and exact, especially since they're laptop-keys.

On the subject of big screens and vintage equipment, my setup a few years ago. Had the monitor since '02, and the keyboard since '04.

I ended up getting a second identical CRT, and going to a double setup. It was a Compaq 22" with a Diamondtron flat screen that did 2048x1536. Got the pair for free from a friend of my dads who was in charge of cleaning out an abandoned office building back in like 2002 that had a couple of them. I had a nice 4096x1536 setup for awhile, but downsized to the 22" LCD for space reasons.

 

You may remember the black Optonica receiver on the left as being a silent auction item from the first National Head-Fi Meet in NYC a couple years ago.  :D

Powering Infinity Beta 40 speakers I got back when I worked at a Circuit City and got 60% off Infinity.

 

AKG K340s are here to stay. Love those cans,

I would absolutely LOVE to find a nice flatpanel CRT around 22 inches to play 1.6 on ;_;

Ah 1.6, that takes me back!

 

Got both a model M and a G15 here. Much prefer the M but I sure does take a bit of getting used to. Keep my G15 as a programming project / backup.

Has anyone seen this company yet?

They make ultra-small, frameless mechanical keyboards.  They say they will start production in Q4 of this year!  The best part is their configurator:  you can choose frame color, key color, eraserhead color, language, and select between cherry blues, browns, and reds :)

I'm not sure I want to know how much those are going to cost >_>'

Probably not that much. Those are just cherries after all.

Is that an Ikari I see?

In hindsight I really should have gotten a brown cherry with letters on them. Letters because there's zero negatives of having letters of no letters, and brown because they don't make as much sound/take less strength to activate.

Filco with Brown Cherries. I really love them, one of my best computer hardware purchases for sure.

On a side note, does anyone know how i can restore that new-keyboard-feeling coating on the keys? I really liked that feeling but after the multiple cleanings, it's gone =\

post #118 of 1607

awww the guru-board was cancelled  I really missed out my not being geekhack for the last few months. Oh well, I'll just be able to afford a good amp sooner, I guess.

 

I actually think I would like Blues better, Browns are nice but they also don't give enough tactile feedback, the step between 'pressed' and 'non-pressed' doesn't have enough of a bump... Yet at the same time, I'm too young for Model Ms, I love having it as a collector's item but it just feels too heavy for a 10 page essay or my thesis *shiver*

Took off most of the keys on my Das KB to clean it with a vacuum, 2 of the keys were too closed and got sucked in.

Luckily they were the medium sized control/alt type keys, which i can do without, but it looks so ugly with 2 blue switches on the surface.

 

Let's hope it rains like a mofo tomorrow so I can open the bag of dust and find my keys.

Looking at the thread title, I thought it meant something like this
