Poker with oneproduct case, billiards keys + niqmods
« on: Sun, 22 July 2012, 04:59:46 »
Well they took a bit longer than we first thought, but it was worth the wait for these cases from oneproduct's group buy, the shade of blue looks amazing, pictures don't really do it justice.  Thanks dude!

The thing I disliked most about the poker was how light and flimsy it felt in the crappy plastic shell, that's all changed, this thing has some serious heft now.  All the PCB flex that was present in the plastic case has been taken care of too, thanks to the fact the PCB screws directly onto an aluminium plate, it's very refreshing to type on, cherry blues have never felt so nice!

I added some slightly raised feet at the back to give it a bit of angle as it was a bit too flat for my liking initially, I'll try find some thin white feet to replace the small black ones to keep my OCD happy :p
I've dressed mine up with some white pbt caps, billiards keys from i3oilermaker's group buy, niqmods RGBY, nyancat + token GH key!

Cheers!  These cases transform the poker nicely, its a shame they weren't more popular.

Yeah I think they are fantastic! The only thing my OCD brain finds a fault with is how the corners are discoloured in comparison to the rest of the case.

Your board really looks fantastic though. The blue NIQMODS key goes really well with the case.

how much does it cost? . I heard its the most non-pinging keyboard out there, because theres no steelplate put in the keyboard.

Otherwise, since they didnt put the "steelplate" does that mean the build quality of the keyboard suck (sry for harsh words to Poker fans, still learning about the Poker keyboards) :) thx in advance

Thanks guys! 

I agree balanar, the discoloured welds are a bit of a bummer, but at least we were aware that it might happen.

xyril I think they ended up costing around $100 give or take, I believe they were just a one-off run though.
The poker in its original case definitely felt more flimsy, I wouldn't say they suck in original guise but a metal case makes them feel 10 times better to type on!  You may want to take a look at treble's replacement poker cases if you haven't already, they too look amazing; http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=29827.0
