Has anybody here ever bought keycaps from corus-kb, or had to deal with their support?

I ordered a set of nordic PBT keycaps from there 9th of December. They supposedly shipped the 19th (I live in Denmark, chose warehouse in France, shipping estimated 3-17 days).
And that's all I've heard. They never gave me a tracking number. I tried writing a support ticket on my order asking for updates the 11th of January, and again the 15th. Then I wrote an email to them the 21st. No answers on either.

What the fuck do I do now? Did I just spend $48 on air?

>>52691074
Do a chargeback and let them pout about it, you're in the EU and have gr8 consumer protection laws. If the caps ever turn up consider them a freebie and compensation for lies about shipping

Christ, fuck me in the ass, their site has the fucking option to select between top-printed and side-printed. And I see that now.

https://corus-kb.com/en/content/1-delivery
>>
>>52691495
Yeah, you can make it into nearly any layout you can think of. I'm not a huge fan of the KC60, but the GH60 is a brilliant board, and the KC60 is close enough to count (minus a few small features).

The biggest issue you'll have is reprogramming the board, but it's not too difficult, just remember to reflash it (people often forget that step for some reason).

Also, it'll be a good idea to resolder the rest of your keys. The KC60 had some issues with weak solder joints, and even though it's plate mounted, many shipped ended up having cracked solder joints that caused people to have keys that were malfunctioning.

All-in-all, I'm only harsh on the board because of how much I like the GH60. It's a great board when you compare it to nearly any other 60% on the market. You should be able to add all of the same features as the GH60 without problems, I just haven't screwed around with mine enough to give it a shot.

You may lose backlight functionality when you flash the firmware, but I'm not 100% positive about that. It really wasn't a board that was designed to have amazing backlight features anyway :]

I'd avoid those. I thought they looked killer until I received them. Most of the keys themselves aren't terrible, but the space was the most warped spacebar I'd ever owned. It could've just been a defect, but I ordered those exact caps from EnjoyPBT on taobao.

The caps are also much thinner than they appear in the picture. Light shined through them like crazy, even holding them up to your ceiling-light revealed how thin they were (you could easily see through them).

The one positive I'd say is that they had amazing colour. I've probably never had a set that had such a great colour palette. I had milk white and light-grey. If it weren't for those issues, I would have kept them.

Those are just my opinion. I'm sure other people feel differently about them, but I won't be ordering from EnjoyPBT again.

To put the spacebar into perspective, it was so warped that it wouldn't fully depress in my keyboard, it kept hitting the side of the case.

Oh, and the profile was interesting. It was my first time trying Gateron profiled caps, and they're completely different than cherry. The height difference is noticeable, and many see it as a huge plus. It felt like the surface of the cap (where your fingers actually touch) was much smaller than other keys. IIRC, the F and J keys were about 9mm across, 10mm long.

Take this with a grain of salt, ofc. I'm bitter about my spacebar issue and the thickness. It could have been a bad batch, and it was much cheaper than the group-buy, so maybe they've made some new caps for the gb that have a higher standard of quality.

I have a set of gateron ghost whites, and my experience is not the same.

>the space was the most warped spacebar I'd ever owned
PBT spacebars are prone to warping, and it seems some people just get bad ones. Mine's fine.

>The caps are also much thinner than they appear in the picture.
They're thicker than a lot of sets.

>Light shined through them like crazy
Normal for light colours, even on thick caps.

>they're completely different than cherry
Gateron are cherry profile. It's the same profile.

>the F and J keys were about 9mm across, 10mm long
The homing keys are scooped, if that's what you mean.

Did you? I don't know anything about the ISO Pok3r, but it's the bottom-right key normally ctrl? If you're saying that it's a different from the keyset, I don't see it at all, it looks exactly like the rest of the keyset, maybe with a slightly thinner font, but I'd assumed that was just a manufacturing issue.

Ah, I get what you're saying. You swapped Caps for control and now need to figure out what to do with the bottom-right control key. Nevemind then.

To be honest, I didn't realize that the Pok3r had that kind of functionality. I figured you could only use some sort of dip-switch setup to assign the their preset layout changes.

>>52696873
I more or less agree with you that completely that color / switch / layout are totally subjective, but realistically, the only thing the Pok3r has going for it is the case.
Personally, I think the Pok3r has one of the best OEM cases available, but you can buy them for ~30-35 bucks from people who upgrade them.

The GH60 is the best 60%, hands down. It's cheaper, equally reliable, and fully programmable/open source. On top of that, you aren't set with a single layout, you can rearrange the keys into practically any layout. You can switch from ANSI to ISO, you can add split shifts to both L-shift and R-shift, and even change how you want the split to be setup (1.75u left and 1u right, or 1u left and 1.75u right). You can do split-backspace. You can change the bottom-row layout to a nonstandard or winkeyless, etc. etc. On top of that, you can program 9 layers, 10 if you include the base layer (which is also fully programmable). You can load your own firmware onto the board, the list goes on and on. If it had the Pok3r case by default, it would easily be the best 60% board STOCK, and changing the case is the easiest mod you can perform. IIRC, you can even deviate from strictly MX switches and use Alps (it's been a while since I've looked at the PCB, so I might be off on that part).

There's even expansion ports on the PCB that allow for RGB lighting, RGB underglow, and even the ability to add a numpad and change your 60% to a TLK or Full-sized board.

The craziest thing about this, is that it's also one of the least expensive high quality 60% boards you can find. I'd imagine it doesn't sell with a better case because it would raise the price.

Original GH60 Rev Bs are hard to come by lately, so you're stuck with the KC60, which is a replica. It's slightly less open because it doesn't have the same expansion ports on the PCB, but they can be added with some soldering.

The KC60 sells for something like 80 bucks, which is nuts when you compare it to the Pok3r.

What is the current best backlit keyboard which doesn't require software?
>>
>>52697664
Your best bet is to order one from mechmarket or a GH classified. If at all possible, get a GH60, you won't run into any software problems, and it's a much easier board to experiment with.
I play with my KC60 more because it's easier to come by, and if I ever do irreparable damage to it, it's not hard to get a new one, but the GH60 is better out-of-the-box.
If you don't want to buy a used one or secondhand one, you'll have to wait for MD to do another KC60 drop, or you can order one from TaoBao through a proxy. The TaoBao KC60s have better cases, but they use either a knockoff GH60 board (it says GH60 on the board, but isn't the original. it's a white PCB rather than the green/black of the original), or they use the SpiRiT PCB, which is decent. To be honest, they're probably both better PCBs than the KC60, they have similar expansion ports to the GH60, but I just dislike the idea that the GH60 clone isn't even going by a name like "KC60" - it's a straight knockoff.

Personally, i'd go for the mechmarket/GH market option rather than TaoBao, unless you want to wait for up to a month on shipping.

I need some advice. I have a Corsair K95.

I spilled a bit of diet soda on the left side of the keyboard and it started shorting out.

I unplugged it, used distilled water to clean, dried it off with my datavac, and then let it sit overnight.

I plugged it in this morning and found that most of the keys on the RIGHT side of the keyboard are not working. Everything to the right of the R and F keys basically.

The LED button also doesn't work, but I can use the K95 software to turn on the LEDs and they still work fine, just the buttons on the keyboard itself don't.

My question is, does this indicate that the keyboard is permanently damaged, that I need to do a better job of cleaning, or that I need to wait longer and hope it starts working again?

>>
>>52703450
Why?
>>
>>52703538
>Your wiring looks pretty complicated, actually.
It could be simpler, but an 8x8 matrix leaves me with more pins on the microcontroller than a 14x5 matrix. This means that I can actually wire up status leds like caps lock or whatever I want. Now that it's all drawn up though with a layout table, it will be super easy to just replicate what's on screen and copy paste that shit into the source files for the firmware. It's also not nearly as complicated as it looks even though it uses at least twice as much wire as a standard matrix. There's a pattern to it.
>How are you pulling off the detachable feature?
I'll let you know when I figure out the specifics. I'm going to have to find a connector that has at least nine conductors and isn't absurdly huge and I don't want to use any usb connectors (including type-a 3.0 which would be perfect or type-c which would also work).

I haven't put a whole lot of effort into it because that's just the icing. My main focus is getting the main board functioning and then I'll figure everything else out after. I probably have a lot of time to do so since I think the diodes I ordered got lost in the mail (tracking says they were delivered a few days ago and they have yet to appear in my mailbox).

Ah, I was wondering if that was your objective.

I'll be curious to hear what you come up with.

>I don't want to use any usb connectors
For technical reasons?
>>
>>52703759
>For technical reasons?
Mostly just preference. I don't want some shit head (or drunk me) to come along and decide that all usb plugs work in all usb ports and with how I would have to wire it, pressing certain buttons on the number pad while it's plugged into a usb port could short out the computer it's plugged into and fry the port but also because I don't want to have two usb ports on my board when only one of them is actually usb. I plan on wiring a pass through port later on down the road.

I'll probably end up doubling or tripping up on connectors though since it may be easier than getting one big one.

I should also mention that I am doing this project for fun and to see how little I can spend. So far I'm at just over $30 for what you see, including the microcontroller. Also, like many projects, I suspect I'll never finish it because as soon as I get it working, I'm going to add features one by one and probably eventually replace the wood with something else and so on. It's so I have a toy to tinker with.

I just had an idea. I can essentially glue two connectors together (probably micro usb because I have a bunch of those and because 5 conductors instead of 4) and possibly recess the receptacles enough so that the wire will be flush.

Hmm. Now I have something else to ponder and experiment with.

Another thought would be using an old cd player with a remote. That would work best.

The rubber coating is a dust magnet, I can confirm this for my quickfire xt.

Can I put WASD's custom keycaps on a Model M?

I must create the ultimate meme keyboard.
>>
>>52704799
yeah sure go for it.
>>
This drop is back up and apparently assdrop now had a mobile site.
>>
Not mechanical, but is there any use for this old keyboard I found with a Windows 3.1 computer?
>>
>>52704641
I recommend clears if you don't mind slightly heavier switches. But if you ever decide on browns, I'm sure there are cheaper options for the same build quality. I'd normally recommend WASD/Code for not-so-common Cherry switches.
>>
>>52704818
They should fit and everything?

Is the spacing between keys on the Model M any different from the spacing in the SVG template WASD provides (ie. the spacing on WASD keyboards)?
>>
>>52704846
Whoops. Forgot to attach.
>>
How do I get rid of dust between keys without pulling out every single key and wiping them down?
>>
>>52704878
slightly different on the bottom row, but you should be good. Just make sure you select the 7u spacebar option.

JESUS CHRIST! Clean that shit! O.O
>>
>>52704906
pretty much gotta pull the keys, if you're not sure of where they'll go back on use the picture you just took after cleaning them.
>>
>>52704799
Cherry MX and buckling spring have different stems, so no.
>>
>>52704863
Can you give the cheaper alternative, should I eventually decide browns.
>>
>>52705032
CMStorm Quickfire Rapid is what I chose. Only threw down about 70 bucks on it.
>>
>>52704988
I knoww I know. But how often do I have to do that? I have to pull out every key once every 3 months to clean it? Seems a bit ridiculous(

>>52704994
thanks for the advice
>>
>>52697421
Don't buy nonstandard layouts next time.
>>
>>52705061
It's really not a big pain with mechanical switches because the keycaps come off so easily. You more than likely won't have to do it every three months unless you are extremely grimey. It will take you around 30-45 minutes to give your keyboard a full detailing. Stop crunching Doritos under your caps and pull em out. I promise it's not as bad as it seems.

I know very little about connectors, but what about the trrs connector the ergodox uses?
>>
>>52705287
If you're still here, look up the CM Storm QuickFire TK. Do yourself a favor and don't buy Razer mechs. Cherry MX switches will last you a longer time and went through much more testing than the Kailh switches in cheaper mechanicals.

Thanks dude. I have a CM Storm Quickfire Tenkeyless that I absolutely adore, but I'm letting my girlfriend borrow it because her mac keyboard fucked up.

I got this Blackwidow Ultimate that a friend gave me for free when his lady told him he can't play video games anymore. I like the backlighting, but the macros throw me off as I always hit them instead of the ctrl keys and what not.

I will look into that.

>>52705689
except being gay isn't a medically problematic condition, whereas pedophilia is under the field of psychiatry. source: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd10/browse/2015/en#/F65.4

and before you post something like

>implying being gay isn't an illness

consider if you're a smart enough person to understand that the most shocking thing to say isn't at all a reasonable answer
>>
>>52705785
homosexuality was too until very recently
>>
>>52705806
that's because of shifting cultural changes and an increased understanding of what sexual orientation is, the same way that pedophilia was classified as an illness based on sexual attitudes in the modern age

while psychiatry isn't an exact science (more of a interpretation of the morality of modern times), we should focus on what we consider reasonable for a person to be like.

>we should focus on what we consider reasonable for a person to be like.
And that changes with the times.
Were you trying to prove me right?
>>
Is there a place to buy individual topres switches?
>>
>>52705876
you proved my point. pedophilia and child marriages have not been considered acceptable in the developed world from the 20th century onward, and is unlikely to be considered a reasonable thing for an adult to want again.

the social stigma of dating anybody who's even in high school is so intense that it dissuades most people from getting in a relationship with them. the social stigma is unbearable for child-adult relationships.

but beyond that it is considered a medical condition, so you should get that checked out for free.

Ducky with blue switch coworkers guy here, I am using the logitech washable keyboard everytime I have to take my laptop to meeting rooms and I'm sick of cabling in general. Need a wireless solution to clear up wire clutter. Would /mkg/ recommend the following?

>>52706061
Oh btw that's only the slider.

Topre doesn't have switches since it's the whole pcb board that polls for the current in the springs, so you can't have ONE topre SWITCH.

If you need sliders, a site sell 3d printed ones for 7€ a pop

If someone managed to do it I'm guessing there'd be crazy demand, then?

It's definitely possible. The keyboards included with NeXT workstations had Helvetica doubleshot PBT caps (pic related).
