I love the simplicity of the Leopold FC200R. If needed, it only needs a few colored keys to be both minimalist and aesthetically pleasing.

Fantastic collection!

Thanks for sharing :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

It like it!  It looks great.  I thought I would like the switches more.  I believe that one has simplified white Alps and they seem decidedly second rate compared to the MX browns that I'm used to.  Shorter travel and a the switching action isn't as smooth.  Otherwise very happy :)

I haven't used Alps a whole lot. I did like the feel of white clicky's on another board, but not enough to stick with it.

I know AKIMbro has a collection of Alps switches. He would know best.

Nice collection!

Just curious, did your Leopold FC200R come with those extra colored replacement key caps? And what are those white key caps you have on that Ducky YOTD?

For the record, the alps in those NOS Focus2001 boards are horrid.  The white alps in my Northgate 101 feel completely different than the white alps in my NOS Focus.

The red keys on the Leo all come from EK.  They automatically include some of them when you buy the board.

The keys on the dragon are the crystal keys from Boiler's Breaking Bad set.

The RGBY is a Hashbaz set combined with one of the geekhack keys.

Thanks for the kind words everyone,  I hope to see some more collections posted too!

55g all the way.  I like light switches, so red better than black, brown better than clear, etc.  55g clears are the best I've ever used except topre.

Naiceee collection! I have a similar filco with black doubleshots, rgb but my arrow keys are like those in your leopold =D About those 55g clears on your kmac, I've read that spacebars should have heavier springs to feel good since the cap is bigger. Is that an issue? or do you have a different switch under there?

Nice :)

And I hope I'm not out of line here but I have that Topre case too, if anyone really wants it make me a realistic trade offer :) Still haven't decided whether to keep it or sell it but if you've got something of equal value/"rarity" i could be persuaded to part with it.

It is also 55g.

I agree about the spacebars.  My Ducky has blues with a green spacebar and I think that is definitely appropriate.  My Filco with browns can't really handle the weight of the aluminum spacebar.

In the case of the 55g clears, the tactile bump on the clears is plenty to hold up the cherry 7x spacebar and it feels just fine.  On a future build, I am going to use 62g vintage blacks but leave the usual black spring on the spacebar since they are linear.

This doesn't really belong in any other thread so I'll put it here.  I decided to get my customs out for a family photo today.




The Cheat with RA2.0
KMAC1 with Cherry Doubleshots, Mimic cable
LZ-GH with Klaxon RoG, Mimic cable
KMAC2 with DSA Retro, Mimic cable
Phantom with Raindrop and Vortex case, TFR cable
Filco with R4 Noir

Yes that is a Filco, but it has a HID lib device and a custom paint job.  Close enough for me.  ;)

Once again, I love your collection. Could you say where you got that Realforce case? It looks and probably feels amazing.  :thumb:

From Tsangan, who got it shipped from korea.

Yes sir, they are.  Quality control was not a priority for them, I'm afraid  :))

Great collection!  Your Phantom and KMAC2 set ups are my favorite.

Thanks.  I really like my TKLs. :)
I thought my wife's tablecloth would be an interesting backdrop and I wanted to see that Cheat next to the LZ and the Phantom.

Fantastic collection!

And not a numeric keypad in sight ;)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
