Keyboard of the Month - March - Vote
« on: Fri, 13 April 2018, 05:24:11 »
Welcome everyone to the very late March edition of Keyboard of the month! We've had a huge amount of interest in terms of views and +1s this month, so I thank all those who took part in the nomination process.

We've got three fantastic boards this month, including TWO Topre nominees! (I think it's a conspiracy ;) )


First up is Subcat's super clean Realforce



More images can be found here

Second is Nwsi's beautiful Leopold FC980C

Finally we have Khers' stealthy TX60



More pictures in the TX60 thread here

The poll will be open for seven days as per usual, so good luck all!

Nothing wrong with a bit of Thorpie goodness :p

Easy vote this time.
"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

Khers' TX-60 and the Realforce are both really good, but for me the Leopold takes the cake. Good luck gentleman

Aha. Ahahaha.

Doesn't mean you'd have to use all 3 votes.
