Nah, I like my Helvetica. Though blanks do look nicer on a HHKB than a realforce.

We used to have a thread like this one. The first one was deleted by iMav... :confused: then we created another one and I guess it got lost when R00tworm happened.

There is too much hate, poor Topre keyboards!

As you can see I like to keep my keyboards simple and clean. Not a fan of unicorn vomit trend, I won't put more than one skull on a keyboard because it just looks fugly.
 



Realforce 91UBY (My first Topre keyboard)





Realforce 87UW







Happy Hacking Keyboard Pro JP (My favourite so far)











Happy Hacking Keyboard Pro 2








That's all my colection of Topre based keyboards. I have a 4 Click Clack skulls for them and also 2 Click Clack blank topre keys.

I also have some full sets of keycaps including red printed, blue non printed and white non printed.

rdjack21 has a great collection of Topre keyboards.

Just take apart your realforce and data-vac it every few months. Or use old pics so that no one will know how dirty it is :P

Here's my 2 rf87 at work
rf87 10th anniversary, variable silenced
rf87 black, variable

As a side note, I invert capslock and left ctrl key. So I ended up with two ctrl on the black rf87 (if you want the hole for the led that is) because ek doesn't provide it when you buy a modifier set

Got a stock HHKB 2 Black sitting right next to it and a 55g 87U AE at work.

Planning on getting a white HHKB and doing some key swaps with the black one, and doing some more cap colors on the white 87u. Will post more pics when I do

Black keys on white case is always a killer combo in my book. Nice on daerid!

Does the 55g mean roughly 55g to depress the key to actuate?

Where did you get a 10th anniversary with that space-bar? I've only seen them with the tiny space-bar and its really been putting me off buying my first Topre.

He indeed does have both those boards. Sadly the tron wasn't with him to bring to the Toronto meetup. But the JIS 30g was, and I loved it!
