Is that a guess, or have you got Aust Post inside knowledge? ;)

A guess. Mine didn't arrive today though :(

My other half hasn't said anything about a package arriving today, not that that doesn't mean it hasn't arrived.  Guess I'll find out later this evening.

Gut feeling is telling me I will probably like the Browns/Reds the most. But we will have to wait and see!

If you're looking for help with this terrible addiction, you're in the wrong place.  Most of us are on the same kind of crack.  Just be glad you haven't caught the vintage buckling spring or Korean keyboard bug yet.

The good news is you should have no problem selling the ones you don't like in the classifiends section!
I wouldn't be surprised if you've already got some offers through private messages.

Lol if you are trying switches out, why do it on expensive backlit boards?

I'm pretty picky when it comes to keyboards I have noticed. It was love at first sight when I gazed upon backlit TKL boards, and after reading/watching so many positive things about the Ducky Shine 2's I just went with it. I could have bought CM QFR's to go the cheaper route but I wouldn't keep them most likely because they aren't backlit. If I were a tad more sane, I would've gone that route but I've always liked keyboards that light up in the dark. Hence why I snagged a CM QF TK. Even though I previously posted that I will probably return some of the boards, truth be told... I might possibly keep all the Ducky boards if I like all the different Cherry MX keys.  :-[

Now to find a way to hide 4 keyboards from the GF...  ;D

Haha well hopefully not a record!  :rolleyes: My only concern is right now is when Cooler Master rolls out the CM QF TK w/ Brown keys... or Ducky releases a Shine 3  :confused: then I might be in trouble. Hopefully I don't like the TK and maybe 2x kinds of the Cherry MX keys!  ;D I think I'll have to limit myself on GeekHack. Luckily I don't know too much about Topre or others like that hehe.

I told myself the same thing when I first started.  Now I have 7 keyboards (with another on the way) and several hundred dollars worth of keycaps.  But to this day I still have never typed on a Topre, and for the sake of my wallet, I hope to keep it that way!  :)

Welcome to Geekhack!

An awesome shopping list :)

Hope you enjoy the keyboards.  What happens if you like all of them? ;)
"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

Not in the mail, but Monday I picked up a HHKB Pro 2. I know the switches are supposed to be the same as the 45g RF, but for some reason the HHKB just feels more solid (which is weird, since it doesn't have a plate).

HHKB Type S!

Also waiting on the following which should be arriving soon (I hope)
Blue Imsto shell for my poker
Metal plate for my poker
some black switches for my Poker, 5, but I only need one because it has reds and I want a black switch for the spacebar because I'm also waiting on
Titanium spacebar for my poker and
Hack Orange CC for my poker!

With the possible exception of the spacebar these are all literally in the air right now :D

After that I am done with keyboards. A good custom cherry, hhkb and a healthy amount of clacks is all I ever really wanted

Your plate isn't even made (should be done being cut tomorrow), much less in the mail. Unless you're getting a plate from somewhere else.

Welcome to Wallethack!
"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

Nah, I thought I read in the thread that posting had started. I hardly ever even check for updates on the stuff anymore. It's gonna get shelved I think anyway because the hhkb will arrive first

It's coming tomorrow...

Got this: http://tigerimports.net/sunshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=12171

Wanted a full sized, blue LED, but they were sold out.  EVERYTHING was selling out, and I wanted to get something with brown switches. Never had a tenkeyless before.  I'm just trying to convince myself that the tenkeyless is what I wanted.  I do play a good fair share of games, and tend to *bump* my hand/mouse on the corner of my keyboard while playing.
