I used a modded FC660M with Mod-H Tactiles and an aluminum case as my daily driver for 2 years (no complaints, still own it, still love it). I wanted to try Topre so I bought a HHKB and modded it with BKE Heavies, Silence-X rings, 3204, etc. I absolutely loved the feel and sound of it, but I fucking hated the layout with a passion. I’ve been touch-typing since the 1st grade and I just couldn’t get used to the damned backspace and ended up selling it.
Since Topre left that much of an impression on me I decided to buy a Realforce R2 TKL and used it for about a week when I decided that I needed a numpad (I teach so a numpad is key for entering grades and shit), so I returned it. I was searching everywhere for a FC980C, but they were all sold out (this was about a year ago, they still are still sold out everywhere) and I got lucky and found one on eBay with Hangul keycaps for a really, really good price, basically brand new, so I bought it along with some more lube, more silencing rings, BKE lights, etc. It took a few weeks for everything to ship and once I got everything I… …promptly put everything in a box and never touched it for a year. Life be like that.
Then the pandemic hit and I’ve been working from home and like a month or two ago I said fuck it and went through the whole process of modding the FC980C and, let me tell you, it did not disappoint. I fucking love this thing. The sound, the feel, just everything. Its upped my enjoyment of typing to another level. Like, I actively look for things to type, I go out of my way just to type. It’s just that good.
Then I started looking for after-market cases for the FC980C and it brought me here. So yeah, 100% happening to me right now.
