Basically the title says all. I'm so tempted to get a Cherry MX Blue... but WHY do I need another keyboard?
Besides, limited desk space...
... And it seriously looks way too Gamer for me...

...
Anyway. For those fellow Canucks who were interested.

Aaaand I just got one and typing on it now.
Man I miss typing on the blues just for the heck of it... although I am sure my housemate will not like when she comes back from the break...
Oh well.

Just picked one up at their sister site, directcanada.  Can't beat a good keyboard for $65!

I ordered one from DriectCanada, didn't know it will ship from Vancouver, I thought they are in TO.
But my invoice shows 2 shipments: one done, the other one pending. Any idea what this is ?

just got mine in from Directcanada, it was shipping from Vancouver to Toronto then out to me.

Mine shows 2 shipments as well, don't know why since I only ordered one!

came in via DHL with their free shipping service. I ordered on the 24th.

BTW Directcanada is not the sister site of CanadaComputer, but of NCIX.


I'm also typing on it now!

these feels really different from the Brown and Red! and different feeling then the Simple Green ALPS. More force required on each key, otherwise it feels similar. Softer sounding as well.

The Logos aren't too bad on the gunmetal case. Thought it would be worse, don't even notice it in the dark. I will be replacing the keycaps though.

Actually the main logo it looks like someone already tried to scratch it off on mine! there are a few scratch marks through it! I thought DC keyboards were new? oh well, not going to return it to have clean logo, since I prob will be covering up the case anyways.

Mystery solved. I got mine tonight. In the tracking system they use, it shows indeed 2 shipments. But it was shipped from Markham, where they have a warehouse.
The carrier was Loomis, not DHL, as it was shown in the invoice. Loomis separated from DHL and they didn't update the tracking system yet.
I like it, softer than Cherry browns. The keycaps are ok for me, I don't know if I will change them, though I considered it after reading some posts here. I have some Wyse 60 available, but I'll give it a try for a few days, at work.
For $65 + HST = $74.50 is a good deal. I could've bought it from Canada Computers, but I don't like those guys, and they have it for $79.99 now, maybe $69.99 with the rebate.
I ordered on 27th and received it on 29th.
