[OTD] New OTD wiki
« on: Mon, 10 June 2024, 06:05:11 »
Hi! In this thread i will try to cover all OTD keyboards. All info and stuff will be covered, with OTD lore itself. Two posts in one day.

List of boards to cover:
1)OTD 356MF
2)OTD 356AMF
3)OTD 356ES
4)OTD 356L
5)OTD 356LS
6)OTD 356n MK.1
7)OTD 356C
8)OTD 356CL
9)OTD 356F
10)OTD 356CL DGE
11)OTD 356n mk2
12)OTD 356A
13)OTD 356W
14)OTD 356mini v1
15)OTD 356mini v2
16)OTD 356pad
17)OTD The Cheat
18)OTD Koala & Brass Koala
19)OTD 356CLS
20)OTD 356.2
21)OTD 456GT
22)OTD 360C
23)OTD MXmini
24)OTD SSS
25)OTD Aqua's projects
26)OTD Cyclopia
27)OTD 2017

Right now i will start with how OTD started. The OTD was created in 2008 named ohbang.net, after a year of testing the website was renamed to OTD.kr. First board for groupbuy (356L) was selled through KBDmania, but during it Eungsam had disagreements with KBDmania administraiton, so he decided to make new community. OTD covered not only keyboards, also bicycles, mechanical pens, photography, gaming and other lifestyle things. The main members of OTD creating team were: Eungsam, Sir, Jeany, Aqua,DSPman, Sad Nova and Korellas.

Haves strange mounting system and FR4(?) green PCB. I See white silkscreen of switch footprints, strange mounting points on pcb, strange stabilizer cutouts, also screwholes (?) on sides of plate. Made in 2007.03.04. Standart F12 Layout. Came before DK Saver,Built with Cherry G80-3491 Blacks and G80-3491 keycaps. The point to make it, was that Eungsam wanted to make Cherry version of Realforce TKL keyboard. Was meant to be first TKL MX keyboard with variable weight springs.

Material: German aluminium
Plate Material: Stainless Steel (?) Aluminium (?)
PCB: FR4 (?) with Cherry G80-3491 Controller
Connectivity: USB, PS/2
Colors: RAW
Plates: SS (?)

I would suggest providing sources / citation of your information. I don't think purely describing pictures you have found online is enough to displace the existing "otd wiki". Also to leave out any information if you're uncertain, the alarming number of (?) does not invoke much confidence in being an informative source and inadvertently create more confusion / doubt.

OTD 356CL (A.K.A (샘플) Samcle) - Finished version of 356C. Haves internal brass weight, angeled design, this board one of the most valuable pieces of keyboard history, that made the footprints of modern keyboard. Haves 2 protos, Dark Gray one and Dark Gunmetal. The main problem during production was anodizing, some boards had problems like streaking or tiger stripes. GB version offer Gunmetal Silver and Black colors. The keyboard units with ano issues were re-anodized to dark gray color, they dont have brass weight and use cone feets. Keyboard uses top mount with o-ring between pcb and plate. PCB uses Holtec 628A controller, PS/2 connectivity, PCB uses FR4 material (eungsam couldnt use CEM-3 in this board, CEM-3 ~1.0T pcb was in DGE) comes with full red aluminium plate or half pc.

Materials: Aluminium, Brass
Mount: Top with Oring between plate and PCB
PCB: Aqua FR4 Red w/ Holtec 628A
Quantity: 92-122 (60/90 Gunmetal, 30 Black, 2 Prototypes)
Colors: Gunmetal Silver, Black (also Dark Gray Proto, Dark Gunmetal Proto)
Connectivity: PS/2 (can be USB too, if you use AIKON controller)
Plates: Aluminium, Polycarbonate




















Quote of Eungsam that he dont used CEM-3 in CL.

OTD 356F - One of the most mysterious boards of 356 series. There is 0 info about internals, only pictures. Probably all info was on forum, which is dead and cant be open. Probably one of prototypes, built with Cherry MX Gray switches, OG cherry keycaps, OTD aluminium CNC keycap prototype,  and OTD Alps-Like short spring prototypes. Red ano, no engraving above arrow cluster, red aluminium plate. F means Female, but also can have "screwed up" (in joke way) meaning.

Materials: Aluminium, Brass/Copper (?)
Mount: Top with oring between plate and PCB (?)
PCB: Aqua FR4 Red w/ Holtec 628A (?)
Quantity: 1
Colors: Red
Connectivity: PS/2
Plates: Aluminium

OTD 356CL DGE (Dark Gray Edition) (A.K.A (닥클) Duckle) - The budget version of 356CL. Probably one of the most popular otd boards, the board haves worse ano quality than 356CL, dont haves brass weight and uses cone feet design, the board is designed around idea of cheap keyboard with good performance in games. the pcb here is CEM-3 1.0mm yellow pcb with atmega16 controller, which gives bigger polling rate with special firmware by CDC. DIP switch on pcb gave possibility to change layout, like on HHKB which was considered as best gaming keyboard in korean community. the board haves only aluminium plate, black one (standard) and rare champagne anodized plate, plate is compatible with 356CL so you could also build it with 356CL pcb or 356CL half pc plate to achieve amazing typing experience.

Materials: Aluminium
Mount: Top with oring between plate and PCB
PCB: Aqua CEM-3 Yellow 1.0T w/ Atmega16
Quantity: ?
Colors: Dark Gray (duh-uh)
Connectivity: PS/2
Plates: Aluminium

Thanks for doing this! I'm pretty well versed in the hobby being around for about 8 years now, but beyond knowing of the OTD boards & knowing they are very desirable/rare. I had zero ideal how many boards they made, what PCBs & controllers they used, how many of each board they made, etc. This is definitely very interesting to me, will be following this thread for sure! :thumb:

OTD 356mini v1 (A.K.A 삼미니 (sammini) - One of the most famous custom 60 percent boards, this board features sandwich o-ring mount, in this mount you have special mounting points like in isolation mount, they fit between top and bottom case, you can make board more softer by slightly unscrewing case or making it more stiffer with fully screwed case, this is the first board to use o-ring rubber band as mounting. The PCB here is CEM-3 red pcb by aqua, this is the first 60 with flex cuts (first keyboard with flexcuts overall was DK Saver) prototype pcb featured green mask. board also had GON case, that had just sandwich mount and thicker bezels, strange plate design. i will update info about it when i will have more photos and info! the board is made to be mini version of 356CL. OTD gamers really liked HHKB size, so this is MX replacement for HHKB by OTD. first version PCB dont haves white silkscreen, haves standard spacing. Mini haves USB-Mini port, but its USB compatible, the cable it used haves PS/2 end to connect it to PC. First version haves only ANSI bottom row.

Materials: Aluminium, Brass
Mount: O-Ring sandwich mount
PCB: Aqua CEM-3 Red
Quantity: ? (10-15 military greens)
Colors: Red, Black, Military Green
Connectivity: PS/2

thanks for sharing  :thumb:

would be nice to know where the qty numbers/colors came from as it seems a bit off. I don't think mini v2 had any black units?

the qty breakdown for the 356.2, by region, is also a bit strange? these boards get traded/sold privately so I'm not sure how one can sum this up by region.

either way really enjoyed going through the old photos.

v2 should have black units, seen some photos of 356mini built with tsangan bottom row.

just seen mentioning of this in gh. info might be outdated, but thats the only thing i have rn.

According to this there were ~20 356CLS made, although I don't know who except Eungsam has the definitive answer.

I'm just hoping I'll get the chance to see one of them in person eventually :thumb:
