Welcome to the first Cherry MX5000 tour!

This is absolutely without a doubt my favourite MX keyboard of all time, and I want to spread the love :thumb:

Please read the below requirements/terms in full and join up! :thumb:

Entrance requirements and terms :
  • Live within CONUS! I'm doing a CONUS tour because that's where the keyboard is currently located, but if this tour is successful then an EU one may commence!
  • Have at least 500 posts (you can try applying without this, but your chances of getting in are very slim unless I have extensive experience with you)
  • Have at least 1 year of membership under your belt (you can try applying without this, but your chances of getting in are very slim unless I have extensive experience with you)
  • I must trust you. If I have issues with anyone applying then I may not allow them to join.
  • You must ship the keyboard on to the next participant VIA A TRACKED, EXPRESS USPS SERVICE after 1 week of having the keyboard.
  • Treat the keyboard with some respect! :'( Don't drop it, don't scratch it and don't disassemble it beyond taking the keycaps off.
  • If the keyboard gets dirty then you should clean it. Nobody likes someone else's finger grease :))
  • You must post a review of the keyboard. It can be a simple "I liked it!"; "I hated it!", or it can be a full write up.
  • I may limit the number of participants, so get in quick!

Please just post in this thread saying that you want to join in order to apply ^-^

Tour will commence after riotonthebay has given the keyboard a good try. It will be shipped to him in the next week or so. I'm putting this up so that we can get a decent number of participants ready.

Tour will be run on DT also. Participants will likely be put in a random order :)

Here is the keyboard to be sent around :



Thanks for looking! I hope we can have a good tour, and I hope that we can spread the love that is the MX5000!

Express USPS like the overnight shipping service USPS has?
I think even regular priority should be OK. By express I mainly meant anything but first class :))

also, not sure how complex you want to get, but you could arrange the order to make the shipping distances as short as possible, which would possibly save us all a little money
demik will never leave.

Can the last person send it back to me instead? Then I can send it to Photeq? ;)
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

If it's going to be shipped Priority or Priority Express, it doesn't matter what the distances are.

Cool, I'd like to be in on the tour then :).

Awesome tour Photekq.  I am very tempted to put my name in, but am very worried that I might like it too much and not be able to find one.  Nubbinator is already trying to wreck my wallet and convert me by letting me borrow his HHKB pro2.

Incredible faith in humanity here Photekq.  As much as I would love to join, I have to decline.  The last time I was part of a tour, said piece never arrived to me and was never seen again.  I know it was a freak chance, but I don't want to risk it with such a nice piece.

It is certainly a very nice keyboard and this tour makes living out of ConUS even harder.

I am, but I am also paranoid about it getting lost in the mail to me like the switch tester that CBA sent on a tour.

I'd like to get in on this but don't have a year under my belt.  Is there a chance that you will run it again in the future for CONUS?
