[SOLD] Oddball PREH Commander POS board, $28.65 shipped

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.
After Trump’s speech, Trump’s team sent out a mass email to his supporters (supposedly directly from Trump) soliciting half a million dollars in donations specifically for something named as the “Official Secure the Border Fund.”  The email asserted that the half a million needed to be raised in one day, and that there was a 9 PM Eastern “deadline" for the funds to be donated.  The email went on to say that Trump had directed his staff to bring him a list of “EVERY AMERICAN PATRIOT” (all caps in the original, of course) who had donated.  (Never mind wondering how he would have time to read such a list after 9 pm, when his speech began.)
At the end of the email — my guess would be in smaller print — was a disclaimer that all donations would be given to Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign fund.  That’s right — NOT to some alleged “Official Secure the Border Fund.”
After the speech, a second email went out to supporters who had not donated, asserting that when Trump reviewed the list of donations, “he noticed that your name was not on the list.”  (I kid you not.)  Therefore, the “deadline" was being extended so that the singled-out supporter could have a chance to donate to the “Official Secure the Border Fund" and get on the list.

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.
