[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.
But what’s wrong with inequality, anyway? Answers to this question are rarely satisfying, but they do serve as a political litmus test about the kind of inequality that matters. A Marxist might concern herself with how economic inequality divides society into classes, allowing capitalists to wield wealth as a weapon, disempower workers, and extract their labor. The humanitarian position tends to prioritize sufficiency of resources and basic rights; feminists, environmentalists, and advocates for the undocumented, the disabled, and minorities would say social inequalities matter, too, and that part of the problem with economic inequality is that it reinforces them.
New research has shown us that economic, social, racial, and gender inequality are inextricably linked—and that the effect of high inequality is to create even more inequality. Many other economists have shown that high levels of inequality hurt democracy because, among other things, they allow rich people and corporations to buy the support of politicians.

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.
