I don't get the PBT love.

I mean sure, they are tough and never really wear away, but neither does good ABS like that from SP.

Doubleshot PBT is also full of missprints, poor alignment, and casting errors, and this is befoer taking into account the limited colors and profiles. I don't really think it is worth the trouble.

I remapped my caps lock to the super key on my old keyboard. I would fuck up keyboard shortcuts at work and at home because I would get used to one then switch to the other. It was terrible =(

I hate when keyboards use non standard layouts, especially for modifier keys.

>I like my CTRL near the bottom near XCV which I use it with so ofton.

I remapped my laptop while waiting to get my hhkb for 10 days.
I kept going to the bottom left ctrl out of muscle memory (i didn't disable it) and thought I'd never get used to the caps/control.

Then I got the hhkb and after a week since the bottom left key ISN'T there at all I quickly got used to the caps/control and now I am even starting to finding it better.

My fingers stretch less, and I think the sculpted profile of topre caps helps.
It just wasn't the same relief on regular keyboards.

Pic related, topre vs OEM profile.

Also, backspace over enter is absolutely genius. Love it.

Utter bullshit. Even GMK/Cherry ABS will shine in half the time it takes PBT to start.

>>52433618
Hhkb takes less space and has no steel plate, meaning a better sound and no ping.

Realforce has more keys, a stupid huge bezel, 55g option and a pseudo numpad on the fn layer.

Don't get the variable force realforce, go full 45 or 55g

Are you saying there are aftermarked PBT caps for topre? Because, yes, HHKB and Realforce caps are the same, typeheaven has shitty ABS and even hi-pro caps are pretty thin.

Built one custom keyboard and working on my second, I can tell you from experience that you're absolutely mistaken.

If you're referring to companies that make boards (like Corsair), you're still mistaken. Manufacturing a PCB can be cheap in bulk, sure, but manufacturing switches, caps, cases, plates, they all require machinery. Most boards are all put together from parts made in different factories, and they have a significant cost to them, especially the higher-end boards.

There are boards that sell for 50 bucks right off the bat, but even those aren't $20 to produce. They end up buying crates of cheap knockoff switches, manufacturing very poor quality PCBs, buying very low quality abs keycaps in bulk, and generally don't manufacture plates because of the cost. Even these keyboards only make a very minimal markup.

If we're being technical, I could buy 20 switches and place them in cardboard, handwire them all to an ATmega16, use no keycaps and type on the stems of the switches instead. With this board I could reduce costs to below $20.00.

Even if manufacturers make everything in-house, you're still looking at the initial costs of the machinery, how much it costs to run the machinery, the cost of materials, and the costs of labor. If you took only the cost of the material, I could see how you'd think it would cost less than $20.00 to make, but the actual cost is far greater.

Now, do some assholes overcharge for crap? Absolutely. Look at some of the 'limited' keysets that get GBs for hundreds of dollars. Some of the Custom boards that get made are way overpriced as well. Once you've made a board and have already prototyped, you can build a quality one for less than $200. When I see a $500 custom, I'm jealous, but not of the person owning the board, but of the person who sold the board.
>>
>>52433873
So, what, like, $23?
>>
>>52433873
$500 boards are usually that expensive because CNC is pretty expensive.

Unless boards are GON style, with just two plates "sandwitch". Then yes, they are overpriced as fuck.
>>
>>52433991
>Unless boards are GON style, with just two plates "sandwitch". Then yes, they are overpriced as fuck.


The Compact SQ was GON style, and instead of $500, it was $145.

Pretty big difference for what is effectively the same thing.

I'm about to get my second mechanical keyboard (My first is a board with blues I'm about to sell soon) and I can't decide between black or clear switches. I've only been able to try clears in person because all tech stores around me suck, and I like the clears a lot more than blues. But I've never tried a linear switch and was wondering if it's worth it, or if I should just get clears. Thoughts?

I got a Rosewill RK-9000V2 with browns earlier this week. It's my first mech. It's much better to type on than pretty much every other keyboard I've owned.

The keys in the middle (g, t, b, f, spacebar sometimes) make a soft, metallic ping sound when they return to the resting position. It's not THAT loud, but it does overwhelm the clack. Is this normal for this keyboard or for less expensive mechs, or should I send it back for another? I think it has something to do with the metal backplate vibrating because the sound is only really noticeable when the keyboard has the legs extended. When it's flat on the desk, the ping is very faint.

I'm building my first gaming PC soon and I need a new keyboard for it.

Whats the verdict on this one? (Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016).

Theres a deal happening where everything on the razer store is 50% off so this will only be £50 ($72).

I know razer is considered shit but surely this would be a good keyboard for half the price of the keyboards I keep getting recommended?

So yesterday I spilled some water on my desk, it seemed I missed my keyboard, because there were bigger problems I might have missed it.
Water leaked into power extender and my appartment lost electricity.
Some minor shit, but I had fears some parts in my pc might have burnt. Dried it up well, let the power extender stay the night. Turned on the PC, everything seemed fine.
Until I noticed 2 keys on my keyboard are constantly sending signals, not one continues, but several per second.
So I wonder what could've happend, could it have bern a surge thought the computer or some droplet into the keys.

Hi /mkg/, I'm still new to mechanical keyboards but a month ago I decided to get myself a ducky Shine 5 because the keyboard at the time was a night mare. Razer shouldn't be allowed to live.

I finally got the package after an extra week of waiting (thank's Canada post) and I plugged it expecting it to turn on immediately but it didn't. I thought nothing of it because I hadn't read the manual yet since I had to work my shift but now I think it might be broken.
Can someone calm my thoughts? Is there an "On" command I just hadn't gotten to yet?

What makes you say any part of either of those is proprietary? The M&P and AR are about as far as you could get from proprietary. They both accept virtually any type of accessory or ammunition from any manufacturer. Besides M&P magazines, I really can't think of a single other thing that wouldn't fit on either that AR or that M&P, especially considering the rails littering both of them.

Been waiting 4 months on a keyboard from Massdrop, they haven't even updated the status to give me a tracking number or updated the thread in ages.

They responded to my support ticket ~2 weeks ago after finally being fed up with waiting, it's been 3 months since they were supposed to ship my item, and they assured me that it would arrive soon, and that X manufacturer was being difficult (not naming the company because I doubt they fucked this up). I messaged them again last night and they said it was already delivered, but I still don't have my keyboard.

They never even gave me a tracking number, and they won't refund my money. They can clearly see that my tracking number wasn't given, and I specifically told them that it's not being shipped to where I live, but to my grandparents where I could pick it up because I didn't want it delivered to my dorm. My grandparents don't leave their house very often and live on a college campus, so I was *really* relying on having a tracking number so I could go to their house for the day when it was supposed to arrive. I'm 40% sure it was stolen, but 60% believes they just didn't ship it. There's a slight chance the post office left it in the truck on accident, but I seriously doubt it.

Anyway, they won't refund the keyboard, they aren't able to acquire a replacement to send me, and now they're saying that all deliveries have been fulfilled.

That's it. I'm so sick of Massdrop and their bullshit at this point. They've fucked up every single order I've ever made with them, I've never had an order that didn't have a mistake. I put up with the first few, I figured they're just a small company, and that it's easy to make mistakes. I never bothered having them fix the mistakes, because I didn't want to wait longer for replacements. I've only had 3 orders arrive within a reasonable time, yet 2 of those orders still shipped later than they said it would.

They completely fucked me, and are going to die as a company. Fuck Massdrop

Well guys, my iKBC G87 finally came in from an Aliexpress order. Ordered it on December 3, 2015, and could have gotten it yesterday but I wasn't home when the delivery attempt was made so I just ended up stopping by the post office to pick it up as I was on my way home from class.

All in all it feels as sturdy as my Ducky Zero TKL. Feels much better than my Filco Majestouch 2 and Keycool 84. The keycaps on this keyboard feel amazing too. There is a slight wobble to it though :(

Yup, the case wobbles just SLIGHTLY. If you're typing on the keys it doesn't wobble, but if you're using the arrow keys and you're pounding on the keyboard (I pound on the arrow keys a lot)
then you'll notice the wobbling.

I don't think I'll add LEDs.

I'd go for the C87 too. It looks like the same keyboard + volume shortcuts. The only thing you'd lose are the PBT Doubleshot keycaps, which really isn't anything to be missed.

Arguing over the thinness of keycaps and collecting multiple memeboards... this is advanced autism, I thought it was just people interested in getting a new keyboard or want to ask about different switches, not this nitpicking. As long as it works I guess...

I've surmised from google that these are just the keys themselves? I can replace those later. The switches, is that the plastic housing in which the spring lies? What difference does it make whether they are clear or black? Is it a difference in plastic types, one more durable than the other?

I understand that you may be trying to help, but I can't get a perfect keyboard on my budget. I'm looking for the best I can manage for under 150$ CDN. Would the G80 be better than one of these bullshit gaymin keyboards with backlights that hover around 100$?

From the shallow digging I've done, it doesn't look like there are many used Cherry keyboards with MX switches on eBay or kijiji (checked both local and Toronto).

Okay, I see now.

http://search.ncix.com/products/?sku=BS898999767

This comes with MX Red. Unfortunately I can't find any other Cherry keyboards at Canadian retailers. I have no clue where I'd find them used in our frozen shithole of a country.

Friendly reminder that black text on black caps is stupid and ugly.

Only go for black hhkb if blank, and never go for black realforce.
Never get a variable weighted realforce, go for full 45 or full 55g.

I have a Razer blackwidow tournament and it's a piece of shit to be honest. In the beginning they felt ok but horrible keycaps. After two weeks some keys were mushy and some where easier or harder to push and feel stiff in a bad way.
>>
>>52449808

The razor boards were decent before the switches were replaced with Kailhs.

With the Kailhs you often get issues like you are experiencing unless you are very lucky.
>>
>>52449482
Ok, since you don't know anything abut the MX-Switches, giving you some tips is nearly impossible. For starters:
MX-Blue: Typewriterish (MX-Green = Heavier blues)
MX-Red: Linear, no bump when pressing the keys (MX-Black = Heavier Reds)
MX-Brown: Tactile (kinda like rubberdome, but better) (MX Clear = Heavier, more tactile Browns)

Actually I think you can get a very decent keyboard for 150CDN.
Keycaps actually are pretty important, since they kinda influence the feel of the switches, just like e.g. a aluminium case does.
You may look at the CM Storm stuff, they are rather cheap at a good price.

And I hate how they're saying that it has Razer's "new" own mechanical switches with shorter actuation force for gaming. Like they're sayings it's better than kailh and cherry.

Well, I am currently planning some new projects, but for now I got little to share since I'm still waiting for most of my stuff or searching for nice donor boards.
Basically after obtaining some lube I'm planing on building a nice 60/65% board with MX Clears (62/67g) as well as one with Salmon/Blue ALPS. But that's still in the distant future.


The picture is a KBP V60 Matias QC with a Tex case, Tai Hao keycaps and lubed stabilizers. If there are any people here who use this keyboard, go get those stabilizers lubed. It's like 2$ and it makes it sound so much better, holy shit. Also, the standard case makes the switches way louder than they should be, hence the tex case. I'm very happy with it.

As for your project, did you consider to use foil instead of paint?

>>52445689
What software are you using? Uninstall everything, you don't need it. the Fn key is built into the firmware of the board itself, so whatever software is making you right-click is something you must have installed on a previous board. When you plug your new board in, it'll install any driver/s you need.

>>52445887
Blown away that they're considered hipster at this point. Just buy a crap-bag and you'll have enough keys to fill 10 keyboards (probably more like 5 or 6, of all the same key profile).

KBP V60 QC Matias
Tex 60% aluminium case (black, obviously)
Tai Hao Dolch (Alps-Mount) keycaps

The build would look the same with a regular 60% kbd, the case and regular Tai Hao Dolchs.

The thing is, Matias switches have ALPS stems, so Cherry keycaps won't fit, so you are screwed if you want the huge variety of keysets there are for Cherry.
However I think that Matias is far superior to everything Cherry, they feel absolutely amazing. If you think you wouldn't want to change the keycaps too often, you really should try them.

Are Granites worth buying? They're pretty much the only keycaps I've found so far that actually offers an ISO enter key and Nordic layout for a TKL.
>>
Been using steelseries 7g for 4 years now, very happy with the keyboard, but the wear and tear is getting to it.

In short, I'm looking for a keyboard with a removable wrist rest in style of 7g, with black switches (browns are fine too), usb hub would be a nice bonus too.

Google Nycco vesa mount, it should be pretty easy.

is there a problem with that? it's a fantastic monitor, sharp, color accurate, and fast.

Why does the thickness of caps matter? Like pbt thin or thick its only the outside you are touching
>>
>>52451176
I just saw the board nothing else it was early go easy on me
>>
>>52452967
it doesn't really matter.

what matters is the material and the roughness (to fight shine)

some say thicker caps make difference with bottoming out but I don't care since I use a topre board and I don't have a steel plate :^)
>>
>>52452999
Oh same so doesnt matter for me too
>>
>>52453024
in fact the abs spacebar I just replaced was actually thicker than the pbt one I put in its place.

and yet the latter feels more solid when being pushed down, and pleasant to the touch.

Haven't tried it yet

I don't think I'll ever use it tobehonest unless I will change ALL caps in the future (see this pic of hypesphere for example)

otherwise I'll probably sell the black one (or keep it to create artifical scarcity lol)

Good morning /mkg/!

Hey friendos. I'm looking to splurge on a Mecha Keyboard. I've only had 1 before in my life: 2012 Razer Black Widow w/ Blue Switch switches. It was so nice, but REALLY loud and clacky and clicky. I had no problems with they keyboard except when it fucking broke on me (I knew I should've listed to /g/ about Razer).
I heard Brown switches were a nice middle between feel & sound?

I'd be using this Keyboard primarily for typing: you know, general PC use. I play vidya, but I'd use my controller over Keyboard (unless I'm playing LoL/HotS/TF2/Overwatch/Path of Exile, etc).

Price doesn't matter.
Must be full-size.
Must have an easy way to change the volume. (On the Razer, I had to hold down "Fn" key + an "F" row button, was so stupid and non-ergonomic).
Must have blue LED backlighting.
Must not be the Logitech 710+ (thing looks hideous).

Shoot me some ideas/recommendations.I went to the Overclock.net recommendations for the Brown switches and none of them looked appealing to me.

Get a Ducky Shine 5

Or a Shine 4 if you want Clears.
>>
>>52454093
k70 w/browns my Nigga, I love mine.
>>
>>52454093
If you liked the tactile bump of blues, you wont like browns.

I do like the switch, but they are way less tactile than blues. If you have no problem with being a little heavier than your blues, you should get a board with clears.
>>
So I have a cmstorm with browns, these things are way too light. Blues feel light and sound terrible to me. Haven't tried clears or blacks to see if they're any better. So Is it worth the plunge for an HHKB if I've never tried topre before?
>>
>>52454964
They are lighter than browns.
>>
>>52454964
not really.
topre are lighter if not the same as brown.

different feeling and shit, but 45g topre can't be called stiff for sure.

Never tried 55g topre, and those only come on realforces anyway.

get a coolermaster tester with novatouch key, or get a novatouch if you can return it

Get the coolermaster switch tester (or a novatouch which you then either keep or return after having used it to try out topre).

I like Topre, but mx clears are also really nice. If you're going to invest a large amount of money, I don't think it will hurt to invest another 10 or twenty bucks to find out what suits you the best so you won't regret your purchase later.
>>
>>52455023
55g topres are still lighter than browns.
>>
>>52450894
Its on only if you press it. I would have it on for the pic but w/e.

There's nothing bad about your choice.

Clears are really nice, second favorite to Topre.
>>
>>52455049
That's simply not true.
>>
When people say tactile, they mean the resistance to the press, right? I thought I was retarded, but then I looked it up in the dictionary and I felt a little vindicated (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tactile). Clearly you guys mean something much more specific than the dictionary definition.
>>
>>52455877
it's like a bubble is popping under your finger.
>>
>>52455877
Tactile switches have a little "bump" that resists your press slightly and then goes away after you pass it. It's a bit like popping bubble wrap with your finger, only more gentle.

Also, loud and tactile switches are generally called "clicky" and the more silent tactile switches are just called "tactile". A switch that is neither clicky nor tactile is called "linear".
>>
Should I get the code 104 - key with clears or the shine 4?
>>
>>52458173
Shine 4.

I once had to ask myself the same question. And then I noticed that both would cost almost the same so I went with the Shine 4.
