Hello all
« on: Sun, 09 September 2012, 14:04:22 »
Hi all,


Just fairly recently joined the mechanical keyboard crowd. Am currently the owner of a Unicomp Ultra Classic, Unicomp Classic 104 and a 1991 IBM Model M. Big fan of buckling springs, as you'd probably guess. Been strongly considering getting a Filco or a Leopold next if I can convince myself all this money is being wisely spent.

Welcome!  I have a Filco and a Rosewill both with browns and I really like them both.  If I had to pick I would take the Filco over the Rosewill.

Welcome to Geekhack!

There are those who say that nothing beats a buckling spring.

Then there are those who are on a quest to try every single mechanical keyboard to prove this one way or another.

Good luck with your wallet!
"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
