    I did, a few months back. Have you? It's a pandemic. Without hijacking hardware's most popular thread, I'd be interested to know the extent of the issue.

    Yup, got a Filco 104 key Majestouch with Blues a while back. I need more but the wallet (read wife) disagrees :(

    I think a lot of people have been buying into mechanical keyboards this year in particular, judging on the sheer number of references to them I have seen people making :hehe:

    I am actually considering it! My keyboard needs replacing soon.

    But I encounter the same problem whenever I vist the mech keyboard thread. I have no clue where to order these exotic keyboards from?

    I am considering ordering the CM storm quickfire rapid keyboard by cooler master, as it is discounted where I usually buy from.

    But I would rather have something rare or exotic.

    I was looking at one of these as well. Good quality, shame about all the branding though. I'd probably strip it down and re-coat it if I got one.

    The major factor in me getting one was my previous keyboard dying. Left Ctrl gave up which is annoying at the best of times.

    nope! I am afraid that I will not like any keyboard "thicker" than 10mm. I like my full size apple keyboard, it's just so flat and so low; i don't like having to lift my hands to type and I really don't like those gel cushions...

    What is so great and unique about the mechanical keyboards compared to my G510?
