pictures below are GHD's
pictures of keys I own. I intend to
and take my own... but these are
very good photos-and I'm not
going to replace them unless mine are at least close!
fit, and finish on GHD
Keys are simply the best. The
single lever bug is my all-time favorite bug. Its combination of looks and
the GHD GN405
single lever paddle (non-iambic.) It
has regular mechanical contacts-as opposed to the optical interrupter
contacts on other keys-and the 'feel' is excellent-the optical sensored keys
have just a bit better feel, and smoother output-but for some reason, I
this one (and the mechanical contact, single lever bug) better. Perhaps it's
some kind of simplicity thing!!!?
This is the GHD GN205
single lever bug. I
bought it in an effort to discern the difference(s) between optically-sensed
contacts and mechanical contacts. The
keys are so good
that it was difficult... but the optical sensor unit wins. Most of it is
that lack of contact bounce on contact-make.
uses rubber bumpers to cushion the impact of reaching the end-of-travel of
the lever. Both feel great... but, oddly enough, I prefer the mech contacts
on my GN205.
Finally, this is the
GHD GD105 Mk II
optical sensor bug with "W" levers. Keying an optical sensor key is the best
"touch" and "feel" I have ever used. You have to try it to believe it. On a
bug it really gets interesting-none of the usual milliseconds-long chatter
mechanical bugs exhibit on contact-make.
