Old Thread >>52479153
I'm looking at the quickfire rapid and I'm seeing at least 3 different designs.
Which is the current one?
Even the amazon page features 2 separate designs, one in matte black with little branding and the other one in silver with gaymer branding up the ass
i just want a cheap red board without any ugly gamer styling on the case

i am literally lmaoing at your life
Friendly reminder that you too, can get the full topre experience for only $10 USD at any thrift store!
I found this keyboard whilst moving furniture old furniture from my job's old office. it feels amazing and sounds like sex under my fingertips.
I see at least 15 keys too many in that picture
this would actually be kind of neat if the bezels wasn't so fucking thick
what is even the point of this?
They omitted 20 keys and saved no space in comparison to the footprint of an hhkb
Yah I think there was but I was gunna get the Miami ones but some other expenses came up. Got a k400 for comfy posting for $5.
I'm getting pretty tired of my full sized mechanical and am thinking about looking for a tenkeyless. The problem is that a lot of the boards I look at either look like riced out spaceships or have ugly logos plastered everywhere. Anyone know a good place to start for 80%?
Just bought pick related with mx clears. How did I do /mkg/?
I've actually wondered about that.
Don't get me wrong, I'd never use that crap as a daily driver, but theoretically, you should be able to make a 10-key keyboard fully functional as a daily driver. That is, if you take his side of the argument to the extreme.
If we take your side of the argument to the extreme, it's useless to have a shift-key, and every symbol should be it's own separate key. That seems much more inefficient than a 9 or 10 key keyboard.
While I'd never use a 40% keyboard, the arguments used against them are pretty ridiculous when you really think about it. 60% keyboards work so well because we're able to quickly use multiple keys at a time, we aren't limited to just pressing one.
To say you're limiting yourself by using one of those keyboards is pretty crazy, unless you're doing something with your other 9 fingers while you're typing.
the idea here is that the standard keyboard has been more or less perfected over the course of 150 years and every key you see on 80% keyboards has a specific function and a reason for being there.
Shift keys are better than effectively doubling the size of the keyboard.
The only reason to omit modifiers, all the numbers and all punctuation and brackets is if you fell for the meme and unironically think it's a good idea.
Does anyone know how to save usd acceleration settings on a ducky?
It tells you how to change it but not how to save it.
Why are you so angry at people who buy, what they like? If he prefers a fn layer over moving his wrists that's a personal preference, just like the type of switch.
I'm not a fan of 40% either, but it is way better than the 100th picture of a fucking HHKB or Pok3r.
It's something special and if you don't like that I respect that man, don't have to buy it. But to hate on the guy who actually doesn't just post pictures of his lame ass stock keyboard is pretty unjustified.
To say that the standard keyboard's been perfected over X years is still a bit of an invalid argument. It's not like the world's come to a consensus and agreed on a standard layout, in fact, they've become much more divided over the years, especially around the 70's+ when we started getting crazy with the key placement.
Now, I don't think those 40% boards are going to catch on, and again, I wouldn't take the time to bother learning to use it, but having to move your hand from home-row -at all- is a lack of efficiency, especially when it could so easily be solved with a simple key-press from one of your 9 extra unused fingers.
If we're talking about efficiency, stenographers have seriously moved into the realm of efficient. There have even been a few keyboard layouts based on the stenotype, including the numbers and every other key you'd find on a full-sized board.
The fact of the matter is, the arrow cluster and everything beyond the main cluster are being eased out. There are some specific cases where you'd want to keep that cluster, but for the majority of people, there's just no use.
Now, in the case of the "refined keyboard" argument, there's no evidence anywhere that shows we've reached the end of the "refining" phase. Keyboards are clearly still being refined today, as evidenced by the surge in 60% boards.
Anyway, my main point is that we have 10 fingers but, at most, use three of them at a time on a keyboard, and that's normally for application-specific shortcuts. There's good cause to find use for the rest of your fingers while they sit around and wait for the next key to be pressed.
You did good.
Pic related. HHKB is superior to the Shine 4 w/ clears in my opinion, but not by that huge of a margin.
Get the vortex translucent pbt caps and you'll be having finger sex with your keyboard.
I wouldn't want to much of a discrepancy between the weight of my alphas and the modifiers, but I replaced the left shift on my old keyboard with a black switch and I can tell you that having linears on your mods is damn comfy.
Received the Hypersphere Topre silencing pads yesterday - already put them on the HHKB and the Royal Kludge.
It does make the HHKB a lot quieter - the spacebar is still just as loud (annoying) and the Click Clack key I have on Esc still clacks (good) but it is quite nice.
On the Kludge there is a small difference in key travel IMO - the dental bands were actually much thinner than I thought they were - but that small difference does translate to a slightly different feel. Of course, that could all be placebo.
Are they worth the money? Ehhhh for the HHKB yes, the Kludge not so much
I'd love to get a PBT spacebar for the HHKB but save for buying a full 87UB from Massdrop I can't find them anywhere.
Where did you get yours?
I have a feeling that if I were to lube up the stabilizer a bit more it would sound a little better
Matt3o sent me a bunch for 10€ last week
He sold like 60 of them, so lurk the forums for classifieds of someone reselling them
Just ordered a pack of these
W-will they help me get over my regret for falling for the topre meme?
The control key is actually there where the caps lock (when the fuck do you ever use caps lock) key is.
Anyway, get a realforce. Was my second choice to the HHKB.
>missing the point of the HHKB
The idea is that your fingers never really need to stray from the home row for functions, so there's nothing to gain by having something where the control button would normally be.
I find using any other board jarring now, like they don't make sense.
When I get the time I will be programming a layer on my Royal Kludge so it reflects the layout of the HHKB when I'm not gaymen.
I agree that you could optimize the use of space like that, but I don't really miss having anything there. You could even do away with the right meta and alt key for all that I care, but that'd look like shit.
You'll say that until you use one.
My HHKB is probably the only piece of technology that you'd have to pry from my cold, dead hands.
The only reason I don't have one at home as well as work is because the layout just doesn't work for gaymen. I've tried, it's a royal pain in the ass.
I hang around for the epic bants, not the people here
Currently nothing as my GTX970 committed sudoku
Before that was a little bit of everything really. Majority of the time I was playing GTAV and The Crew but I was doing that with a controller mostly.
I mainly play games that are a bit older, back when I didn't have a waifu so I actually had time to play games instead of scoring chicks. The ones that spring to mind as the most recent are
Max Payne 1/2/3
CS:S / CS:GO
I found that the two things I missed the most in most games was the arrow cluster and the F keys, and especially in CS having control where it was was a right pain in the bum.
Don't mind me, just being the best keyboard to actually get shit done. You kids can continue jerking yourselves to the sound of your keyboards while we actually use our keyboard to type.
Because the HHKB is not based on the current-day ANSI/JIS keyboard, but the ASCII-style workstation keyboard.
>I find using any other board jarring now, like they don't make sense.
Holy crap, somebody screenshot this. Falling hard for the meme. Can't wait for the disillusionment in a year.
They're an alright keyboard, but damn you've got it bad.
The standard 'Ctrl' key is much easier to hit than the HHKB's 'Alt' key simply because of the way your fingers work. VIM users have been using the "Hackers" Ctrl key for ages. It's definitely a plus, but you can put that on practically any mech.
Defend the Topre 'switches', that's cool, they're overhyped - but definitely the best rubberdomes you can find, but you can't deny that it's more or less about looks. Moving that alt key 1.5u to the left would make much more sense than it's current position, but it would ruin the symmetry of the layout.
What trips me out is that Topre 'switches' have such incredible potential in terms of pressure sensitivity, you can read the capacitance during the entirety of the keypress, yet they haven't introduced any pressure-sensitive keyboards. I'm certain that it's simply a matter of software and -maybe- the controller (haven't looked into my HHKB enough to find the answer to this), but it would easily revolutionize the entire idea of "the keyboard".
>VIM users have been using the "Hackers" Ctrl key for ages.
Are you thinking of emacs? For vim escape is more common.
Why the quotes? Discrete or not, they're still switches.
This, like "overrated", just means that you don't like it as much as people you see praising it.
>but it would ruin the symmetry of the layout
Couldn't you move the other side to the right as well?
...So i picked these up for 75 dollars.
Thats 12.50 each.
Not bad for the current state they are in. Anyone know where i can get the phone chord (Looks like an RJ 11) to plug into the keyboard for cheap online? I've done a few searches but I'm curious if someone knows something better.
>>but it would ruin the symmetry of the layout
>Couldn't you move the other side to the right as well?
Older IBMs have that layout iirc, but it's more uncomfortable on the wrist since the board itself isn't positioned in those ergonomic-styled boards. Most people favour having the keyboard rotated in one direction or the other, so you could move the left or right alt.
>This, like "overrated", just means that you don't like it as much as people you see praising it.
I actually don't dislike my HHKB, nor do I dislike Topres, but it's the fanaticism surrounding these boards that's I'm referring to. The cult following's gone far beyond Mac vs PC levels, which is nuts. Praising a board is fine, but saying that other boards are "jarring" is borderline fanaticism.
Why the quotes? Discrete or not, they're still switches.
Very much debatable. Mechanical switches physically close a circuit. Capacitive switches don't, and it's more-or-less down to the way that this works. It's similar to calling your touchscreen a 'switch'.
I believe that this is the greatest asset to Topre, though. With the right controller, they should, theoretically, be able to sense different levels of pressure on the keypress. I'm sure there are driving games that would love this, or shooting games that would love being able to adjust your movement speed with more accuracy.
Even beyond video games, you could move this into the realm of art; through a Topre keyboard should be able to play a beautiful piano or mix tracks in a virutal-DJ setup.
This could lead to incredible security systems for your computer - Just imagine your password being different every time, and it's displayed on the screen.
>Type: Oneness With Cup Rubber.
>Oneness With Cup Rubber
> _88% match in typing tendencies.
Being able to analyse typing habits is very much real, it's something I've been working on since 2014 with my old professor, and that's just with (cont)
and that's just with measuring the time between certain keypresses and releases. Having the ability to sense the pressure used when typing is a virtual fingerprint that could top any other. Topre having not moved in this direction blows my mind.
>>VIM users have been using the "Hackers" Ctrl key for ages.
>Are you thinking of emacs? For vim escape is more common.
That's a fair enough point, and I'll cease my argument of it. I use VIM and use Ctrl+Space for Esc and Ctrl
Anyway, as what I'm assuming is a fellow HHKB/Topre user, you have to admit that the fervent support for these has been pretty ridiculous lately. Half the time I'm wondering if people are trolling. I'm an insane keyboard fanatic, I own way too many and should probably sell some and buy a car, but the hype surround HHKB over the last 2 months has escalated into proportions of lunacy.
>Can't wait for the disillusionment in a year.
I don't think so Tim. I've already had it for two and a half years and I don't think I'll be getting rid of it as my main office use board any time soon.
>You can read the capacitance during the entirety of the keypress, yet they haven't introduced any pressure-sensitive keyboards. I'm certain that it's simply a matter of software and -maybe- the controller (haven't looked into my HHKB enough to find the answer to this), but it would easily revolutionize the entire idea of "the keyboard".
Actually the Royal Kludge can do this via a hotkey setting on the board. I haven't tried it as it'd be pretty pointless to use as there is a distinct tactile point on the board at which they activate.
Unless you wanted to change the capacitance to a point before the tactile point so you just have to tap them without bottoming out
>Older IBMs have that layout iirc
They call it winkeyless nowadays.
>Mechanical switches physically close a circuit. Capacitive switches don't, and it's more-or-less down to the way that this works. It's similar to calling your touchscreen a 'switch'.
Then we're just getting into the "what constitutes a mechanical keyboard" argument, as the literal definition would have us include rubber dome + membranes. Model Fs are capacitative and Model Ms use membranes, after all - nothing is clear-cut and to use scare quotes only serves to draw resentment.
>Anyway, as what I'm assuming is a fellow HHKB/Topre user

Here, or in general? Here, it's just that a couple guys bought them at the same time, talking about them and posting pictures. This drummed more anti-topre sentiment than usual, which in turn caused the HHKB owners and others to mock the irrationality with equally-irrational shit flinging. This is how 4chan works - it's not a reason to get Internet Mad unless you enjoy participating in that kind of dankery.
I think you're misunderstanding (or I'm misunderstanding you), they have the ability to act as pressure-sensitive keys. So, for simplicity, let's saying with typing. If you barely press the 'A' key, it would give show a quite small letter 'A'. If you press it a little harder, it would increase in size, all the way up until you bottom out and produce a giant sized 'A'..
That type of pressure sensitivity. It would first be used in games I'm sure, but the benefit to security would be brilliant.
For gaming, if you were driving a car with the arrow keys, you could speed up by pressing the 'up' key ever so slightly (harder).
The hardware is already in the switch, that's the amazing part. From what I've gathered, it really boils down to getting a much, much better controller for the thing, and this idea would move beyond just 'a possibility'. They're sitting on something wonderful, but aren't utilising it. Meh.
Also, right on, I'm glad you're still using yours. I'm specifically referring to the people who are fanatic over them now. I've had one for a fair bit of time, and I don't really love it or hate it. I have a pretty big collection of different boards, and this really just feels like the most incredible rubberdome, but they don't compare to Mechs and the joy that I get out of my Mech hobby.
I think the people who call them 'shit' have never tried them, and I think the people calling them 'the last keyboard you'll ever need' are delusional, at least if they're a mech enthusiast.
Even if I had the perfect keyboard, I'd still need more. I may even be disappointed to one day find the perfect keyboard, since I'd have no more motivation to build, design, buy, interact with, the community and waste my time doing something fun. It's a nice change from life's monotony, and I'd hate to ruin that by finding the elusive 'Perfect Keyboard'
Ah I see, like the triggers on a Playstation or Xbox controller.
I'm sure it's just a matter of figuring out how to program a controller board to do so.
Once I got the HHKB I was happy as larry for ages but now building a new rig for home so searching again.
The RK is about 80% of a real Topre. Misses the crisp tactile feedback, feels a lot smoother than genuine. If I had to compare it to anything it'd be more tactile than browns, but smooth like reds.
Of course genuine Topre is always the best though
Well, I've reached endgame.
This keyboard sounds, feels, and looks amazing.
It's really unfortunate anon. I really love the sensor of the mouse but it is very ugly and just doesn't fit the rest of my setup at all. I'm hoping Logitech releases a simpler looking mouse with that same sensor later down the road but it's not that big of an issue for me.
>>Older IBMs have that layout iirc
>They call it winkeyless nowadays.
Ah, thank you

I assure you the quoted 'switch' was only for the purpose of clarity, rather than to draw resentment. I care more about discussion than arguments. I suppose I could have been less hostile in my first sentence. I genuinely believe that those in the HHKB fad right now are going to bring nothing but negativity for the mech community as a whole in the future, though, until they become disillusioned with their product and see it for what it is; a quality rubberdome-capacitive keyboard. It's a great keyboard, but often lifted as if it's some deity of keyboardom. If somebody's truly into this hobby, they wouldn't buy one board and let it be it, constantly post about owning their "end-game" etc. bleh, it bugs me just to think about it.
It's like when people ask to compare a Topre to a Cherry switch, and somebody says "Ergo Clears" or something. It's ridicuslous. Compare it to a rubberdome. Say "It feels like a much more precise rubberdome that registers your keystroke before you've followed through with the click, and springs back up instantly". You can't describe that with a Cherry switch, they're absolutely different.
People shitpost about everything, man. There are fags who say that the buckling spring is the be-all of keyboards, or how others are plebs for not having a KMAC2 or some shit. People are going to shitposting about something. Obviously things like "endgame" are laughable, but you're making a mistake by tying it to the HHKB.
>see it for what it is; a quality rubberdome-capacitive keyboard
I find it hard to believe that, when you cut away the bantz, a HHKB owner thinks anything else. Topre owners will often go out of the way to avoid mentioning the term "rubber dome" because it just draws inane comments like >>52501481.
>You can't describe that with a Cherry switch, they're absolutely different.
Most of the time I see people saying the same thing. Just let it slide, dude. You're thinking way too hard about this.
Buy the signature plastics crap bag when they sell more of them.
You'll get a fuckton of random keys that were rejects (I think 3lbs worth?)
Some of them are mostly fine/ completely fine though, and you'll have a fuckton of keycaps.
Just advised my imouto to buy the wasd code 87 w/ clears after she wanted "white lights and no numberpad keyboard too!"
I'm an alright oniichan yeah?

This is how 4chan works - it's not a reason to get Internet Mad unless you enjoy participating in that kind of dankery.
I saw it play out completely differently. People posting about their "Topre Masterrace" and responding to any questions about MX boards calling them poorfags, and to instead save up and buy the perfect keyboard. Then you a surge of people buying Toppres (often first time purchases, never tried a standard "mech"), and then getting laughed at for falling for the meme.
It seems like the quickest way to destroy a community, but it's been picking up steam since last year (as far as I've noticed) and a lot more newcomers are buying them for their first boards and have that monetary bias toward them at that point, insulting people who disagree with their views. It's one of those things that happens from both sides in /g/, but frequently from newbies in DH and less frequently GH (where most people enjoy both for what they are).
I know 4chan's a place to blow off steam at this point, so I guess it's ironic that I'm doing exactly that, but I wish the board had more productive posters.
I had a current build posted about 5 days ago here, and it drew in some folk who might be interested in learning to build their own, but quickly became filled with the sputtering of back-and-forth between Zealios and Topre. "Neckbeard-this" & "Topre-that"
It's enough to lose confidence that this general can actually work as a community here. I almost feel like it would be better moved to /DIY/, and make just a standard /KBG/ here
do you want to know why this general is dying?
it's because people like you keep replying to topre shitposters and post purchase rationalizers instead of answering questions about non-topre shit like >>52496696
>I find it hard to believe that, when you cut away the bantz, a HHKB owner thinks anything else. Topre owners will often go out of the way to avoid mentioning the term "rubber dome" because it just draws inane comments like >>52501481.
I suppose so, but that's the way I perceive mine, and I've a couple other buddies who don't think the exact same thing, but along the same lines, that they're great, but far from any perfect keyboard.
And also agreed that >>52501440 is a dumbass who's probably never tried a Topre, but the entire 'feel' of a Topre is due to the rubberdome, it's guided, sure, which is why I say an extremely precise, but it's the only way you could compare it to something. It just wouldn't compare to a Cherry switch, and if you took the Rubberdome out of a Topre, you'd feel nothing (maybe a bit of a bounce, if we're being technical)
Anyway, I've gotta get some sleep. Pleasure chatting with ya,
there is also one on massdrop that pops up from time to time.
Found it, it's a gashapon.
Gave her firsthand on blues and seemed to really like it, but I advised against it honestly because the noise it produces during late at night. Reds were a little "too soft", so it was either browns or clears. Browns sold out on amz, so told her to go with clears (lowkey I want to try them out too). Had an individual clear keyswitch for her to feel and said it was fine. I think it'll be alright and not straining. More pleasing than her current "emachines" keyboard.
what are your multiple desktop shortcuts? mine are f3/f4 to go left/right, and f1 to show an overview of all the windows on the current screen
i can use it comfortably with one hand and it doesn't require reaching out
i think it's comfier than any of the two key combos i can think of
>Use with one hand
That's the thing, often time it's still easier to hit easy-to-access keys, one on each hand, then to have one hand hit a harder to access key. So I usually just use ctrl-alt-left/right to switch desktops, or super-left/right.
Is there any mechanical keyboard that is quieter than membrane?
Or is there another alternative that is better, but quieter or as quiet as membrane?
my office gave me a budget to get anything reasonable including keyboards
Even with o-rings, Cherry switches tend to make a pretty loud noise when they pop back up. Especially if the keycaps are on the lighter side and you have switches with strong springs. It's even worse than bottoming out noise because the delayed sound isn't useful as feedback.
I think the Matias switches are better in this regard, but it's just about impossible to find any TKL euro board with them and I hear their simplified Alps style design wobbles quite a bit.
This is my first ever mechanical board, just came in today. How'd I do, friendos? Monoprice 13785. Cherry MX Blues. I do want to customize the caps a bit: for now just replace the win-keys with my preferred Linux distro's logo. There was a site I found where you could upload images to put on custom caps, but it's not in my history for some reason.
Forgot to mention: it came with a voucher for a wine site that doesn't ship to my state so if you like wine I'll give you the info. I don't like it anyway.
here's going the other way
I've seen these in stores and have always assumed they would be terrible to type on.
not trying to burst your bubble but that company gives those things out with $20 purchases from newegg. Place I do business with that buys computer parts has a box of those in the front store that says take one
Hello friendo. For the record, this keyboard uses gateron blues and not cherry mx blues. Do not fret as many people find the gaterons to be better than the cherry mx. Also I am currently using the same keyboard if that makes you feel any better and I absolutely love it.
Super deal for a $50 board. The only thing that would make this a better deal is if there was maybe a $40 TKL version.

The fuck is up with people with the retarded 60% or whatever keyboards and plain key caps? What is the point, how much can they fall for a shitty meme. Whats next, a keyboard for gamers that only consist of WASD keys, ALT and SHIFT?
> Whats next, a keyboard for gamers that only consist of WASD keys, ALT and SHIFT?
60% and TKL are acceptable. Anything over or under those are memes or waste. Honestly though I don't get your problem with 60% keyboards. Most of them have all the same features as a TKL keyboard but you need to press the FN key. How scary
My dd is this kûl es87 tenkeyless with MX brownswhich replaced a Filco tenkeyless with browns as well. I prefer the kûl over the Filco in terms of build quality and materials. .

Cherry MY are shit, but god damn, the keycaps. Only cost me 20 bucks.
Get a G80/81 HXX from Ebay/Kleinanzeigen, buy a GMK RGB Modkit (originative got some in Stock) search for a Cherry profile 6.25u spacebar. I guess that's your best chance to get a high quality ISO-DE keyset for cheap money.
60% keyboard people:
What have you done for Home, End, Delete, and arrow keys?
Having a super compact keyboard really appeals to me, but I wouldn't be able to give up that sweet sweet functionality.
(and I'm not ready to start doing all my work in emacs / vim)
I don't really use the home key often. I don't use the end key often. I don't use the delete key. My 60% keyboard has arrow keys. FN + IJKL
But all of those other keys are still on my keyboard but I need to press FN.
Honestly, just get the 660c. It has the arrow keys the function layer is ridiculously good. PgDn, Up etc is basically linked to Fn+Arrow Keys. Really intuitive. Delete and Insert also exist so the only thing you might be missing or F keys. No idea what you would be using them for though.
>60% keyboard people:
>What have you done for Home, End, Delete, and arrow keys?
I use them, what else?
>>We are /g/, we are super serious
Who are you quoting
I, for one, am here for the memes
The memes are real. So where do I get these Topre keycaps from?
I have a Round 5a (6) set on order. Make sure, if you're going for the honeywell colourway, that you don't get anything marked SPH from R6 - that's the space cadet grey. "Grey" is the same colourway as R5.
I am German. We capitalize every single noun, so I am pretty sure that I have to use shift way more often than I use my arrow keys. I mean, all I use them for is PgDn etc. via the Fn layer, or for quickly browsing through spreadsheets. What else would you ever need them for?
When I edit a script or paper I usually rephrase half the sentences anyway, so theres not much of a point in using the arrow keys to insert single letters. For typos I usually just scrap and retype the entire word as well. Dont know, I just dont use them that often. Another reason might be the fact that using your mouse will almost always be faster anyway, its just a bit more 'exhausting'.
Cant wait for the butthurt. Provoking Mito is always funny.
Wait, so sifo is actually mito?
I actually don't frequent geekhack because of this motherfucker and some other plain retarded people (looking at you, romevi).
It's just to much cringe to read their constant circlejerk.
Just got this in the mail today. Time to build a nice little keyboard.
Depends. Do you want an HHKB?
If you want one, you should obviously get one. If you're uncertain, you should look around to see what else there is that suits your interests and needs. Perhaps there's something even more suitable for you than a HHKB.

no seriously look it up
you do the accented letters with some modifiers before like apostrophes and shit.
Now to find Å
or get to fixing it up, it's fully programmable if I understand things correctly
>Now to find Å
try alt gr + A
>What does the red ones mean?
those are muted characters.
if you press one of that and then space, it types the characters
if you press one and then a letter, you get the accented letter. see >>52510453
Having this thing right under my hands and my eyes makes me feel pangs of regret over having switched to ANSI layout
>apple is not hipster enough for me
>better build me an apple keyboard from scratch
is this your ride?
