For 6/5, I’d like to say “Happy 65% Day!” Post your 65%ers folks! ✋👍 ✋❤️

I’d like to start off by saying that I love ALL of the keyboards in my collection, but I find myself, more times than not, with a 65% board on my desk. With today being June 5th (6/5) I figured I’d make this post to see how many others out there feel the same about them.

Post ‘em if ya got ‘em!!!

Happy 6/5!

Way too many keyboards to post them all, but here’s a photo of the first one I ever built from about 7 years ago:

Went from 1 to 47 65% boards pretty quick! Defintely one of the larger chunks of my collection.

@pixelpusher ‘s collection is hallowed and only spoken of in hushed whispers on this site…

One of these days we’ll need like an overhead drone shot of them all!!

maybe so. my son doesn’t have a lot of interest in keyboards, so I’ll have to do something with them one off these days. :rofl:

Happy 6/5!

Easily my favorite form-factor, and probably well over 90% of my collection - 65s are just right for me and my use-cases. I happen to be moving-in some new housemates today so I won’t really have a moment to take any new photos, but here’s a few:

I took a whack at listing all of them off the dome - I think I managed not to miss any! In no particular order, my collection of 65s - not all of them built:
  • Durgod Hades 68 [x2 - both dead, and why I now own a Hakko FR-301 - very much outmoded these days being cast-aluminum tray-mounts with warped cases, but these blazed the trail for affordable 65s, and even had software that I’d call very good. Too bad they’re a subsidiary of HKGaming. :skull:]

  • KBD67 Lite x? [I literally lost count of how many of these I have, at least four complete ones and some extra cases - I sold one of the completes a couple years ago]

  • KBD67 v3

  • NK65EE [x2]

  • Protozoa P.02 [has been in its case for years waiting until I don’t suck at stabs anymore, or until I find sufficiently idiot-proof ones]

  • Grid 650

  • CIY TES68 [sold - not that I planned on it but someone asked and needed a testbed]

  • CIY GAS67 [sold - not that I planned on it but someone had to have it when they saw it]

  • NuPhy Halo65 [sold - actually gifted to one of my best friends; made him into a 65% and heavy spring convert]

  • TKC Portico [honestly my favorite keeb to come out of the “entry” cloud of keebs from around 2020, was a little sad to see it go out of production so quickly, if only because I want a source for spare parts! I put almost as many miles on this keeb as I have my 67L: thanks to it being super easy to take apart, this was my daily switch-testing platform for years until I just about wore-out the sockets and FR4 plate.]

  • TKC Portico68 BL [x2 - simple, solid, flirts with perfection - when a generic design gets pretty much everything right you get something like this. If “65% keyboard” was in the dictionary, a photo of this keeb would be appropriate.]

  • MelGeek Mojo68 [x2 - versatile, convenient, looks so darn cool… but ill-suited for dusty environments with their glossy transparent cases. One colorway of this series had such a cool design that people are still copying it - irony is it’s a design that hardly takes itself seriously and outwardly pokes fun at keeb trends]

  • Bakeneko65

  • Mode Envoy

  • Neo65 [might be my actual favorite 65 at the moment - never mind that it cost less than most of the rest of this list. I’d change a thing or two about it, sure - but for that price? Genuinely next level.]

  • IC NightFox [A colorway variant of the OG 65, how could I not? I bought a handful of these to turn into terminal boards for machines at work]

I loaded DCS Alchemy on my Portal - this is my first and only DCS set, and I like it! 65s are a great size for me; maybe the only downside is that I don’t get to show off as many keycaps in a set (to myself?)!

I had this on my desk yesterday as well, so I thought I would add it today.
