This one just came up, apparently the seller has a large quantity.

Good for someone that wants MX clear stems for cheap.

These are really dirty, key feel is probably going to be negatively affected. Better for harvesting clear stems to do ergo mods.

This seller also had some G80-8113s for sale, but they where painted for some reason. I think someone said the plastic had turned yellow, and someone tried to paint them back to the origonal color. Still a smashing deal for a nice board, but kind of weird.

I already listed these boards in the previous thread that had the other clear boards he sold that Mr. Perfect linked.\

Yeah, they are painted for that reason. Whoever did it left circles around the cherry logo and the keyboard light legends so that you could see them, and its obvious that they are yellow there.

The two I got are pretty great, considering getting one or two of these as well.

I've actually asked him if these are painted as well already.

if you get one of the ones with browns, 40$ shipping isnt that bad. I got my board for 30+44 shipping to germany and it is the best board Ive had so far for what i need at work. Ive programmed autocad shortcuts to the extra buttons, for example. Only gripe I have with  the board is left shift...I don't understand why they put the ANSI shift on a board with an ISO enter. So im basically missing a button for the regular ISO layout, but im slowly adapting to not having it.
Even with clears this board is a solid performer, especially in situations where you can use extra macro keys, I keep hearing MMO-players asking for more buttons^^. I find the programmable buttons around the arrow keys nice and comfortable to use, and could imagine arrow cluster gamers would love this layout.

Looks like a diode on the picture with a pulled keycap, are they more than 2KRO? If they are 6KRO I might get one for MMO gaming, the arrow cluster with programmable buttons look lovely.
I hope the condition isn't as bad as it looks on the picture.

I purchased two of them, a bit silly perhaps, but since the shipping was most of the cost it was only $20 extra for a second board. The USD to Swedish krona rate is very beneficial for me right now.

You'll definitely want to give them a good cleaning when you get them. Personally, I'd take the whole thing apart and soak the keycaps and case overnight.

They may have some cosmetic issues even after thorough cleaning, but I'll bet that they will still function perfectly. Cherry MX switches are very resilient.

I sure will, I might even replace the keycaps for some doubleshots if I can.
I hope the keyboards won't be in that bad condition.

I bought the same or very similar POS keyboard from the same seller a few weeks ago.  Model is G80-8113LRCUS.  There was a "Great Finds" post on this.  people here were able to offer the sellers down to $7.50 each for 2.  I think my offer was $10 each for 2 plus shipping.

The ones I received are MX clears.  Each switch has a diode inside the switch.  The spacebar has a grey switch.  And the cases were painted over.  They are dirty keyboards.  The keys are lasered keys.

I just bought them for the clear switches.  I am in the process of de-soldering them off the board, and then junk the rest.

If you know any used keyboards with MX Brown, please let me know.

That picture is actually of the previous board he was selling. You can tell by the enter key being that close and then the end of the board is right there. The board this pic is from is NKRO.

I've asked him to take a new pic of this board. But Mr. Perfect says that according to the NKRO wiki this one has it as well.

The G80-8200LPBUS with PS/2 is listed as having NKRO in the NKRO wiki. A nice review of the board can be found here(I really like how he labeled the relegandable keys).

The 8113s seem to command a lower price  than 8200s for some reason; likely better availability and/or less desirability due to clumsy layout.

I put in an offer for two.  We'll see how it goes.

Yeah, I liked what he did with that too. I figured that icons like that would work well. Once I've made some mods to some of mine in terms of switches and stuff I might try some of this software stuff. Do you think the "it keeps its macros in memory" thing applies to the other board with the touchpad on it as well?

Yeah, that is nice to know. I'll be wanting to turn one or both into blue cherry and ergo clear. Though I'm thinking of getting one or two of these to do that, because I think without that stupid trackpad these will look better modernized. By that I mean the black paint plus dyed keys like people have done to model m's.

Ok, he told me that these are from the same place as the last set of stuff he had. They use the same switch/slider as the last set (clears) and are a little dirtier but not painted.

these are back up again. looks like the seller assumed that these boards were clear switches like the last ones so posted that info.

he has now removed the clear switch pic and states that these are brown stems. seems like a great deal for browns. I may have to grab a few since I never seem to have enough brown springs laying around.

this is my new favorite board.  bought one for work use, it was disgustingly filthy but the clears are awesome and it is in fact NKRO (or at least 6KRO - I don't have anything with a PS/2 port.)  Waiting for another to show up for home because I can't decide if I like it better than my Model M (heresy?)  I also posted an AutoCAD file in the keyboard forum that I made for the keycaps so I could get turn a goofy POS feature into something useful - I put the AutoCAD shortcuts on the F-keys.  (if you use a program that uses F-keys it's nice to have them labeled.)  Been using it for about a week now and it's still great.

Dislikes: ISO enter.  Clear cap keys feel a little weird, and some of them I use a lot (delete, arrows)  Numpad doesn't have arrows etc. on it, which is annoying.  Cats love to play with the little clear caps for the relegendable keys.  But for $30 shipped and an evening's worth of cleaning I have a great board.

Likes: pretty standard layout other than the keys around the numpad (which I don't use that often) and the abovementioned ISO enter.  Am so use to standard layout keyboards that anything else is hard for me.  CLEARS!!! far outweigh the negatives.  Only thing that could possibly be better would be a bone-standard 104-key layout board with these same switches, but I won't hold my breath for one to come up at this price.

Seller is cool, will combine shipping if you ask nicely (also bought some smaller junk POS boards from him for the parts - mainly the clear caps and I think that I may have horked up the card reader while cleaning on the first one.)

You definitely need to request one with "white sliders" if you want clears. He sent me browns, and said the only clears he had left were the 8113 models, which are a bit more expensive. And I think he only had 2 left anyway.

He did tell me the ones left are much cleaner than that one, for whatever that's worth.

I received my two boards today, both of them were white clear switches. I was set on getting browns, but I ended up liking clears more than I thought I would.
Condition was alright but dirty. Will clean them today.

I don't think you can. I have a G80-8113 with the same enter key, and the PCB is not designed with extra holes for an ANSI layout. You can see it in Alex's second picture. It's a shame, really.

How does one open the case without breaking it? The snap on plastic seems very fragile.

You'll have to just hope you don't break it when doing so. I have the other one, but it really is just held on by those snap on tabs.

As far as converting it to ANSI, that pic just shows me what the standard holes look like. You could desolder those two switches and then cut holes and spaghetti wire to the original spots. It just depends on what the actual traces look like.

How does one open the case without breaking it? The snap on plastic seems very fragile.

It's super easy once you figure it out. Use a decent sized flat head screwdriver and start on the upper back tab. I like to kind of use my off hand to apply slight separating pressure and pop the first tab (i slide the flat head screwdriverin and twist), once it is off, go to the next big one, then go back to the small one on the side and work your way back and forth until you have them all popped off. The case will just come right off after this.

I've done this around 10 times over the past few weeks and it's super easy.
Check out my sales thread.

It was indeed pretty painless. It snapped together really easy aswell after I was done.
Did any of you have troubles with the firmware for the programmable keys? I downloaded Cherry Tools 5.8 and it says that it doesn't detect any keyboard. I suspect it's because my PC lacks a PS/2 port and I connected it with a USB converter.

Also it seems like one of the two keyboards I got did not work, the 3 LEDs light up, but there is no response from the keyboard. Any idea what could be the problem? I suppose I will harvest the switches from that one.

I noticed that it doesn't seem to be full NKRO, when holding left shift and pressing two arrow keys it kills the left shift.
Is it the same for you?

I have been using the sharp end of a dental floss pick to open the board up. No scratches and very little force required

I think that is an artifact of your ps2 to usb converter and not anything the board is doing. The board works great.

How would we go about modding this from ISO on ANSI?  I can't stand those enter keys.  (I haven't bought one of these yet, but I'm looking to...)


I don't know if this will work as I haven't been able to try it, but what I was going to do was drill mounting holes to move two of the switches, and then run jumper wires to them from their original location.

Do you have one of the switches disassembled by any chance? A key stuck down? I tried booting up with one of the keystems removed once, and that's all it did. Lit up three LEDs and hung. At first I thought I'd fried it. :shocked:

Cherry Tools won't work through a PS/2 to USB converter - you'll need a computer with a PS/2 port to program the keyboard.
