Cherry G81-3000SAT
« on: Thu, 02 April 2015, 04:51:56 »
These pictures aren't too great, as my two regular lighting setups struggled to properly light the beautiful blue side legends. I'll try and take some better pictures in the future, but wanted to share these for the time being. They really do not do those blue legends justice.

I've been actively searching for a G81-3004SAT for over a year now with no luck.

A while ago scottc @ DT found a few of these G81-3000SATs brand new in their boxes. Thanks to him I was able to successfully end my search! Also thanks to him a Cherry mystery has been solved.

Until he found those boards, the only known Cherry keyboard with Czech dyesubs was that Peacock branded G81-3004SAT. However, last year user danville (응삼) on otd.kr posted this photo. I saw it and wondered which keyboard the keycaps came from. They looked very similar to the G81-3004SAT, although the Czech legends were a bit different, and there were extra legends on some of the alphas. I asked around a bit and it turned out the user found the keycaps on their own, with no keyboard. Nobody knew which keyboard they were from. They were known as 'Peacock special' keycaps.

Then scottc found these keyboards - the first G81-3000SATs to be found by an enthusiast. Mystery solved, thanks Scott ;)

Anyway, here are the pictures. The board is just a standard G81-3000 with black MY switches (this is the first time I've tried them NIB - they're actually quite nice!). The keycaps are thick PBT dye-sublimated. The side legends are also dye-sublimated.

I have two ages - F17 and F37. F17 has green 'Sys Rq', while F37 is black. Everything else is the same as far as I can tell.

If I used ISO I'd be crazy jelly of those legends.

Let's face it. I'm still pretty jelly of those legends.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

Those extra blue legends are great :D
"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
