Is there a point getting mechanicals if I prefer bottoming out over touch typing?

I feel it just slows me down and is tiring

>> No.51877894

Bottoming out and touch typing are not mutually exclusive. The lighter switches are very hard to avoid bottoming out, so don't feel bad about it. Or you can get one of the heavier switches.

Or put thick o-rings to reduce the travel distance if you really want to.

>> No.51878034

>bottoming out over touch typing?
you mean light typing

touch typing just means not looking at the keyboard

widebasket replied to me I can't return an unboxed Leopold to him, as it can't be considered "mint in sealed box".

So that basically means I can't return if I regret the topre meme, and that means I'm not betting 250$ on a gamble.

From what I've seen people say online...

the buckling spring is to cherry MX's,
what cherry MX's are to rubber domes

IE, people seem to cum buckets over them, especially the genuine IBM model M's. Of course, the noise factor can be career suicide depending on your situation at work.

And the EnduraPro...buckling spring with clit mouse, oh man. God I want one of these too, but my wife already thinks I'm nuts for spending more than $20 on my first mechanical.

>> No.51884982

Yeah, but zenkaku is used (on the HHKB JP it's the logo key to the bottom left), along with @[];:,./-^ layout etc. I used the Japanese layout for 6 years. I can fluently type at about 115 WPM with using shift 7 for apostrophe, which I actually prefer because sometimes I hit Enter on non-Japanese layouts when attempting to press the apostrophe. And shift 2 for quotes.

No big deal though, it's all preference. I have actually seen quite a few Japanese saying that the HHKB JP layout is terrible and they prefer the western layout, just because virtually all Japanese use romaji and tab/numbers/enter to write (hence the small spacebar).

>> No.51885028

Just to let you know the Novatouch doesn't have an aluminum backplate while the FC660C does. What this means is, they will feel entirely different even if they use the exact same switch. Same goes for the HHKB Pro 2 and FC660C, they use the same 45g Topre switches but they feel different.

They are about the same price, but the 660C's layout seems more worthwhile. It's all because of the aluminum backplate (and the ins/del which I would probably map to page up/down).

The feeling of pressing is some what similar.

They're very "round" and "soft" in the press with like a tactile bump I guess at the start. There's a soft landing as well so they're really quiet though if that's what you're looking for.
