  1. So although the Omnikey is still a ridiculously good deal for under $30-40 usd and still a great deal under like $50-60, I think I'll pass unless it stays at $30 right until the bidding ends and I can snag it for like $35 or less.

  2. Welp. Shoulda seen this coming but I'm not getting the Omnikey.



    Man do I want it bad, but I don't think I'm getting it for a price I'd like to pay. Also, the seller apparently already has it boxed up and won't take any more pictures, so I'm kinda sceptical that it's actually brand new since the only picture is of the keyboard and you can't even see the cable or anything.


    Here's a link if anyone's interested: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/202840794463?_trksid=p2380057.m570.l5997&_trkparms=gh1g%3DI202840794463.N34.S1.typeOUTBID.R1.TR1&autorefresh=true

      Yes, *insert something people like* is great, but have you ever seen solder traces that look like this?



      As much as I love this, I don't trust current companies with doing it like this, as there will probably be a flaw that will short circuit so many of the connections!

  3. I'm getting a Focus Keypro for Christmas and might also get a brand-new (supposedly) Omnikey Ultra for super cheap (hopefully, anyway). I really don't want to drop literally 10x the amount of money on a Soarer's converter, nor do I want to deal with finding a 5-pin DIN plug and making an external converter, and I don't want to not use a perfectly good cable and have an internal conveter. Anyway, I'm wondering if I can use this cheapo converter on Amazon https://www.amazon.ca/kenable-Mini-Female-Keyboard-Adapter/dp/B01H90H6AU/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=mini+din+to+usb&qid=1575755320&sr=8-7 iirc both the keyboards can be switched between AT and XT protocols, so I'm wondering if this is all I need to use them on my desktop. And yes, my desktop has a PS/2 port. Thanks!
  4. Aw fuck yeah. The Omnikey guy cancelled his bid so it's back at 99 cents...I might get this thing, and for stupid cheap too.

    1. BuckGup


      Not before I bid on it

  5. $143 CAD later (because shipping and import is ludicrously expensive)


    1. amdorintel


      yes that is apart of the shipping costs and import cost and duties cost and parcel company fees

  6. Aw fuck yeah. Getting a Focus FK-9000 (Keypro) for just $70 USD. Potentially could've got it for less but idc, this is already a decent price. Sadly, shipping will be like $50 lol. Canadian dollars, but still.



    And although the calculator apparently barely works, the keyboard does. And it has genuine white Alps, not clones.

  7. Shoutout to the person who bid at *least* $40 (USD) more than I did on the Omnikey. Jesus christ I get he wants the board but come on man. $40? You bid almost double what I did.

  8. I believe that it's the material the case is made out of. Not sure what C and PD stand for (maybe plastic for PD?) but I'm pretty sure M stands for magnesium and it's the nicest one.
  9. I would recommend the FC660. Good balance between size and functionality.
  10. There is no "[brand/keyboard] is only good for gaming or typing". That basically all depends on the switches (and, to some extent, the layout; obviously if you need a numpad a tkl won't be a good choice).
  11. Well he listed them so I would assume he has a way to get them.
  12. I see. Yeah, a well-built keyboard won't have that problem lol. It shouldn't be a problem on either the Leopold or the Varmilo, whichever you decide to go with. Though it also looks like he is fucking hammering on that poor keyboard.
