Great webcast guys, I always enjoy them. Good details about the galaxy tab plus, I actually missed that article so I thank you for the overview. Marco and the keyboards lol, awesome! I remember when the rosewill's came out and we had the key stroke discussion then, I learned a ton. Congrats to the tablet winners and I look forward to seeing who wins the other ones!!!! Keep up the great work guys.

Now you're just mashing it!

Great broadcast :) thanks guys. I always enjoy the witty commentary that goes back and forth. The technical terms I prefer the non clicky - tactile keyboard to use the technical terms.

I am  with you CDeeter and look forward to seeing the vidcast each and every time a new one is out. They are just so enjoyable to watch, with all the tech goodness some crave but always presented in a manner that make them fun to watch.

Certainly for me was the mechanical keyboards from Rosewill and a the 100.00 price is not really all that steep when one thinks about it.just going to have think about the switches I would like for my paw thumping style of typing .if one could call it that.

Congrats again to Cdeeter, omegadraco, and Taylor >>  Der Meister. With the sweet wins.

pretty Hot ! stuff to match the HH community which is totally kool

Great stuff guys I agree with Dave Samsung does make some the best displays or panels in the market.

As far as the Keyboards I will definitely have to check out the Cherry Red MX as my next keyboard. I saw one at Best Buy it was a Razer and it clicked and that turned me away but if I can get one smooth that might intrigue me as I consider myself a hard core gamer.

You got me interested in them a long time ago, but I've not been able to afford one yet.

That Rosewill's price makes it all the more tempting for me.

EDIT: Listening to the Keyboard part again, (a few times) I'll probably go for the Brown switches.

Have you been able to get your hands one a Deck keyboard (http://www.deckkeyboards.com/)? I have heard they are pretty epic but they are also expensive...the two tactile models they have use the Cherry MX clear switches

I am using a steelseries shift keyboard currently it is tactile but not quite the same.

I really like the look of those Deck keyboards. Pricey at $170 but I guess you get what you pay for.

Dave's got a Deck keyboard, but I haven't sprung for one yet. I will eventually though--Cherry Clears are the only switches I down own at the moment.

Ah 42, the answer to life, the universe and everything. One has to wonder why it wasn't mentioned in the podcast.

On another note, your welcome again rrplay!

Dave_HH:

AJM, I haven't received any email here. Happy to answer any questions.

I think that might be because the email listed around HH has davea@hotmail.com - whereas the one you reply with doesn't have the "a". 

Hopefully that helps anyone trying to message you from here :)
