Just ordered caps for the first time
« on: Wed, 09 January 2013, 10:17:22 »
I just got my first mechanical keyboard (Filco Majestouch w/Blues) over Christmas and with the help of Brad ordered my first custom keycaps! He tracked down some Weezer caps that were offered up several weeks ago and put an order together for me. He responded quickly and thoroughly. I'm excited to get my caps installed and that my first purchase was through techkeys.

A+++++ WILL BUY AGAIN!

Welcome to Geekhack, aront!

Your enthusiasm is catching, and techkeys.us is definitely a good place to start custom keycap collecting :)
"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

Welcome to the forum. Glad you are happy with your recent purchases.

Glad to be here! There's a wealth of information here and over at /r/mechanical keyboards that helped me decide to return the impulse buy "Das" for a thoroughly-researched Filco. No regrets!

I think I can say on behalf of everyone at GeekHack, Welcome to your new addiction :)

My wife is already making of fun of me. It didn't take long.

congrats!

Thanks!

I agree, and Brad was super helpful! He's already shipped my order, my only hope is that I don't wear out the switch under F5 trying to get shipment updates!

A true Geekhacker if there ever was one. We all know the feeling :P Welcome and congrats on your first purchase! There will be many more to come, and TechKeys is a great place to do it.

My signature hasn't changed since 2012. I should really update it.
