It is very, pricey, yes.

You could try the non-RGB version. SteelSeries makes awesome mechanical keyboards, too.

something relatively compact, mechanical, backlit, my price tag is beteween 70 and 100 bucks, see the ones i posted above, 70 for the eie game1, 100 for the razer chroma omata

What really pisses me off is how loud they have to make everything these days.

I invite you: If you have a 10 year old mouse laying around, compare it's sound with your current one. Goddamnit, it's a mouse not a musical instrument.

I'm angry.

this would be perfect but for this price i have to sell a kidney to get it.

I don't know that much about cheap backlit keyboards tbh but i would advice you to ask this on /g/ in the /mkg/ thread or /csg/ if you wanna go with a chink keyboard (they are usually pretty good tbh) because no one here seems to have any idea what they are talking about.

>>719758724
I don't have tpab on vinyl but i do love that album
those four are the only records i own really i just bought them to decorate my setup because i though it would look cool.

>>719758735
what do you mean? they are comfy
here is the right one without the porn in the way

>>719758997
eh, i use cherry mx clears and they arent that bad. try to compare that to a model m and see how quiet everything was back in the day.
>>
>>719755979
how is $70 cheap? you like throwing money away for meme gaming shit?
>>
>>719759232
Are model Ms loud? I thought they just use springs, then they would not be loud as long as you use the right amount of force.
>>
>>719757861
i have this one, how come it doesn't work after i restart? i have to hit space bar 1st. then after a min it works?

they are much louder then any modern keyboard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nd42CCZ4PLU

>>719759418
your keyboard and your mouse are the devices that you use all the time when using a computer, depending of the time consumed it is not a bad idea to buy something slightly better than the cheap shit going aroung or at least thats what i believe, i do not consider 70$ a lot given the fact that i will keep this device until it dies (so did the previous one, Logitech g110 which i had since 2009)

I bought a CM Storm QuickFire XT - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches for typing and not for gaming. It is OK, but I think I paid more for it than it is worth. I thought I would be getting a keyboard with less key pressure than this and the home keys have the tactile marker in the wrong place for the tilt of the board. I regret the purchase, although it is far from defective.

I used a vintage AT keyboard for about 25 years. I kept having to buy adapter plugs through the years.
>>
>>719760534
>vintage AT keyboard
dude i used to have one of those from a 286 pc i owned as a kid, i also kept it through the years up to my first Pentium MMX and later on with some adapters, one of the best keyboards i have ever used

Full mechanical switches and noisy, but minimal key pressure. I bought mine for $5. The next time I went into that store, I gave the manager a $10 tip.
>>
>>719760929
back then i think all keyboards were like that

Naw, there was a membrane switch abomination that also existed. Really cheap and unpleasant feel.
>>
Found a used G170+ on ebay for <$100. Cherry Brown switches. The one I've gotten had dampening rings already installed on all the keys
>>
I highly recommend a keyboard from Unicomp. They're buckling-spring mechanicals so they're loud af but they're a dream to type on.

>>719766436
do they have a version with a numpad?

>>719766536
I dont think they have one with a numpad and trackpoint.
>>
>>719766720
pity, if a rip off of this (including the build quality i belive it has) did exist and it came with a numpad (backlit optional) i would consider it
>>
>>719766902
Well there is the IBM M13, but it only has a 2 button trackpoint.

>>719767154
it is bulkier but the 1998 version looks nice enough

Hello

I have a Ducky Zero with brown switches at home and i love it. I'd like to have a mechanical keyboard at work too, but the browns are far too noisy for that use case. Any silent mechanical keyboard that is fit for office use? (i share a room with coworkers so it really has to be kinda silent, like normal keyboards are)
>>
>>719767975
i think this guy >>719758406 answered your question
>>
>>719767975
clears are probably your best choice. they are the most quiet cherry switch. they are like browns but good and heavy. topre would also be good but but they are pretty expensive.

also look into O rings
>>
>>719768312
yeah i've seen that chart however i'm not sure if i interprete it correctly. Are the most silent keys the red keys (soft -> silent, no bump and clicky noise -> even more silent)?
However I'd miss the tactile bump my browns make, this makes it feel so much better.
>>
>>719758358
I sit like that all the time. Its awesome to relax and throw your feet up and have a beer with some music.
>>
Hard to believe this thread is on b
>>
>>719770629
there are plenty of trap threads to your liking if this does not cut it for you
>>
anyone has experience with dampening o-rings? do they make the typing feel shitty?
>>
>>719766293
Some prefer not having a numpad as they have more mouse real estate.
>>
>>719771657
>do they make the typing feel shitty?
yes
>>
>>719772135
my mouse is set on such high sensitivity, i have a qck mini mousepad and its more than enough space for me
>>
>>719772135
>>719772353
not only more mouse real estate, it is also more ergonomic and comfy.
>>
>>719772135
but some people actual use the numpad, it is very helpfull when working with numbers, your fingers travel much less distance + there is no use of two hands, numpad is operated by only one hand
>>
>>719772525
and if you don't need the numpad, i've put a lot of programming shortcuts on my numpad

Otherwise, very nice design.

>>719775120
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ask the company that made it,but i'd guess because it's suppose to be used with a windows computer, this design is ancient btw, check atari 400/800 computers

Buy my keyboards for $5 from a surplus store; which, hear me out, still work flawlessly after almost 20 years, are mechanical and smooth to use as my cherry switch corsairs and logitechs. I only buy extras for other pcs, projects, or replacement caps. Brands like razer use cheap plastics that wear down much quicker, keep your keyboards clean as possible, most people have fur and crumbs growing in their shit.
>>
>>719775495
i would like a hhkb but i just can justify the cost.
also i feel like i wouldn't like them because they are so light. i switched my cherry blacks to gaterons and i had to go back because they were too light and that is a 50g switch. currently on cherry clears though and im really liking them.

>>719775811
thankss
>>
>>719775958
why the sensorship??
>>
>>719775958
No worries your legs make up for it ;)
Also I really like hhkb, light typer . Gat reds for gaming tho.
You could make a very succesful thread with pics like that btw 0:)
