[SOLD] Oddball PREH Commander POS board, $28.65 shipped
« on: Mon, 09 April 2018, 18:53:55 »
Preh Commander MC128WX Keyboard





BIN for a mere $8.00 + $20.65 shipping

These are rated for 50M keypresses (see product info here), so unless the seller has a severely inflated opinion of RDs, they're apparently mechanical of some type.

I'm assuming it's dye-subbed, as pad printing wouldn't last long in a POS environment, right?

Also note the key labeled "DO NOT USE"—I'm tempted to buy the thing just to see what's under there.  :?)

I would have bought it for the caps, even though I am not a Cherry user, but "Enter" is almost worn off, so it is surely not durable.
The Article II clause gave readers some guidance by giving two specific examples of impeachable misconduct: “Treason” and “Bribery”. Both were “high” offenses indeed.
”Treason” – defined elsewhere in the Constitution – meant waging war against America or betraying her to an enemy power. “Bribery” – secretly bending laws to favor the rich and powerful – involved official misconduct of a highly malignant sort, threatening the very soul of a democratic republic committed to equality under law. In the case of a president who did not take bribes but gave them – in effect paying men to vote for him – the bribery would undermine the very legitimacy of the election that brought him to office.

It's not mechanical. It uses a "polyester switching membrane". In fact, I don't think any PREH boards are mechanical.
I proxy anything including keyboards (キーボード / 鍵盤), from both Japan (日本) and China (中國). For more information, you may visit my dedicated webpage here: https://www.keyboards.es/proxying.html

You're right, Fo, I didn't spot that... Thanks!

I was just going by the "50 million keypresses" in the product literature. But I doubt anyone ever counts their keypresses... If they do, they really need to get out more.
