well, it finally came in. packaging could have been better (it was just wrapped in plastic, not double boxed) and i remember being told we were getting free keypullers.. and i see nothing in my package but that doesn't really matter. what matters is that i got my keyboard :)



thanks for organizing this sherryton.. now i just need a white ducky 1087 and i'll be set!

So demik, Filco or Leopold? Also, do you think you can take pics side by side? I want to see just how different the whites are between the two.

Looks good btw! Nice Poker.

color? i'll have to give it to leopold. filco has more of a light cream tint to it. it's not bad, but i like leopold's light grey/white wash color. the ducky white looks better than both when it comes to white tho.

i'll take a picture in a second, be warned... all i have is an iphone for a camera tho so it might look crappy.

there is a slight ping in the menu key. but other than, typical filco quality. which is great. same goes with the leopold.

here are some pics side by side (or one on top of the other actually)

remember, crappy iphone pictures. i need to invest in a P&S




btw, thanks again for the GB sherryton

Someone set up a group buy.

Thanks for the pictures, btw. I had a Leopold and the shift keys felt like mushy styrofoam was holding it up when compared to my sweet buttery Filco.

Just got mine. Love it! The box however was a bit damaged during shipping. Dented on just about all four corners :mad: However I guess its nobody's fault here, as none of us other than sherryton had direct contact with the agent/shipper. Either way, thanks for setting this up sherryton.
