Chicony Kb-5160 with blue Alps

RedCowl80 got this nice Chicony Kb-5160 for free from a recycling center he frequents.

My first Blue Alps! A Chicony Kb-5160. No scratchiness at all :) gotta say that the hype is real – RedCowl80.

As some educated commenters point out: if they get dirty you can always boil n' wax them with paraffin wax. It won't mess with the tactility: You only boil the housings and sliders, then just wax the sliders.
