1. gateron clears
2. Topre
3. Cherry clears

the tactile bump is barely noticeable when you type at any proper speed. They're a shitty compromise between linears and tactile switches. Gateron makes better browns if you want browns, otherwise I'd recommend getting clears instead of browns.
Or some other switch, just not cherry browns.

Topre 30g feels more linear-ish than 45g or 55g. The whole appeal in Topre is the tactile feel, the 30g ones feel pretty boring, like a rubber dome, but with not very much tactility. If you want to try Topre, I'd suggest you go for 45g or 55g.

t. Gateron clears are my favorite switch so far, have a HHKB and tried Topre in all weights available. Also tried a whole bunch of other switches.

Topre has an increase of force at the upper half of the keystroke, after which the resistance becomes practically zero as the rubber dome collapses.


>>57889396
Won't be aluminum obviously, just going to 3D print a case and a plate and handwire the POS.
I'm not aiming to disrupt any markets, it's more of a practical joke than anything

>>57889429
You must have a strange concept of linear.
The rubber dome collapses, and you pretty much inevitably bottom out, because the force is near zero. That's not the case with linear switches.

Reds don't feel similar to topre in the slightest. Nor does any other linear switch. Topre feels like a rubber dome, because it is one. Linears feel like pressing down on a spring with resistance that increases slightly as you bottom out, Topre is pretty much the opposite of that.

zealios, gateron browns, topre, matias qc.

The only silent and tactile switch that doesn't suck and is made by cherry is clears. And arguably whites, though those still have a soft click to them.

>How easy would it be to replace the switches on some random Chink keyboard?
About as easy as it'd be on any either keyboard that uses discrete switches, e. g. not very difficult at all, just a bit time consuming.

Cooler master makes good entry level boards in various layouts, check if you can find any of those. Rapidfire for TKL and Quickfire XT for full-size is what you'd be looking for.

Browns feel like reds with dirt in them.

It took me a few days to get used to switches this light, but I don't make more typos than I do with my seven other mechanical keyboards.

I'd easily say that these are my favorite switches, up there with Topre. They're incredibly nice to type on, it just feels like you're pushing down on a pillar of air that dissipates as you push down on the keycap.

I haven't done a whole lot in the direction of replacing springs except for one or two in single switches, but there's not a whole lot to it. Just make sure you put the switch together again the right way and you're golden.

It's true though. Cherry browns suck ass compared to any other tactile cherry switch. If you want linears, gaterons may be more desirable (though if you're autistic about absolutely consistent weighting and wobble, you may want to stick with cherry), but cherry browns are still the least tactile of all tactile cherry switches.

Anon are you retarded?

Linears don't feel like rubber domes in the slightest.

I actually was waging Zealios against Topre some time ago (prior to me getting my HHKB), and upon having gotten a sample of both I ultimately went for Topre. Zealios felt like cherry clears, with the same sluggish tactile bump, a bit smoother and without the increasing force after bottoming out. Ergo clears or simply clears both feel better than zealios imo.

Tried them in a store, they felt like a slider over rubber.

Not a slider over a rubber dome. Just a slider over a somewhat bouncy piece of rubber. Not really the most amazing feeling ever.

What switches did you get? Mind giving us your opinion on it? It's always nice to know about budget boards.

Two minor issues:

I wouldn't define any switch as "the standard" (not really sure what that's supposed to mean in the first place)

I'd go with "drawn out" tactile bump rather than "long smooth" tactile bump. Cherry switches aren't really smooth by default and I'd say that the formulation "drawn out" fits better.

"long smooth" would be more fitting for tactile zealios.

That's all I can complain about. This is looking really sweet.

2/2

I'd also add mention of the fact that switches are entirely matter of preference and that there is no switch which is inherently better for typing or for gaming.

Furthermore I'd remove the mention of "less typing fatigue" (the "for light or normal typists" part is fine) since it makes it seem as if one type of switch were inherently more ergonomic than others (this is subject to debate, but typing fatigue is entirely a matter of your finger strength. I wrote an entire paper on a board with clears and never had any issues with finger fatigue).
On that note, I'd mention that clears bottom out at 100g since this is quite a defining quality of clears.

I haven't had any hands-on experience with grays of either category, so I can't add anything to that.

That being said, I feel like I can't mention enough how much I like the design of this graph. Are you a graphic designer or something by trade?
