Help me out here. I've gone through a bunch of different "help pick your keyboard" forms and I keep getting brought back to this keyboard:

Deck Francium White LED Backlit PBT Mechanical Keyboard (Brown Cherry MX)


It looks like it's everything I want, 10-keyless, backlit, brown cherry mx. But the snob in me maybe wants something a little fancier looking. The chassis could be a bit more colorful, and the font on those keys is just absolutely terrible.

I'm willing to forgive the colors though; I really want to pull the trigger on this keyboard. However I want to get different keycaps that still work with the backlighting. If it's possible I think I'd really like the spherical dome shape too. Would you recommend "Deck" brand keyboards? Are those keycaps pretty interchangeable?

This is my first mechanical keyboard. I'm coming off of a hand-me-down Razer tarantula whose "E" key is finally dying. I hate typing on this thing too.

15 years ago, I had terrible tendinitis in both wrists, largely from using shitty keyboards like the Microsoft "Natural" (most unnatural thing ever made).

Mechanical keyboards give you 100% consistent key force. Compare with the MS Natural, which used sliding plastic posts. If you hit a fat key (e.g. shift) slightly off center of the post, you suddenly have a huge increase in resistance, thanks to friction.

The single biggest impact from any change I made was in switching to a Kinesis Classic keyboard. Aside from the shitty function keys, it's all Cherry MX with separate keywells.

My 2006 Macbook was the first non-mechanical keyboard that didn't bring on agony almost immediately. To this day, if I sit at a coworker or family member's computer with some shitty OEM keyboard, my wrists will be on fire within a few minutes.

It's not alleviating the symptoms, idiot, it's curing the tendinitis. It's a chronic inflammation issue, and a good mechanical keyboard was the most important part of my recovery.

Look, I don't care AT ALL whether or not you buy a mechanical keyboard. I don't care if you jump off a bridge and die tonight. But I highly recommend that everyone use a quality mechanical keyboard. It's ridiculous that in 2015 we're still contorting our bodies to interface with computers.

Anyway, ergonomics are highly personal. I like the Kinesis Classic/Advantage with widely spaced keywells. Others like split/pivoting keyboards. Others like the weird vertical ones.

>I shouldn't even be addressing a post with an analogy that bad

That analogy is perfectly apt.

> but I meant that it didn't prevent you from getting RSI in the first place.

Why WOULDN'T something which ends tendinitis would likely help prevent it from occurring in the first place?

Also, I never developed RSI in all the years of working for hours on an IBM Model M. Then I went to shitty membrane keyboards, then I hit rock bottom with the MS "Natural" in hopes that it would alleviate the tendinitis that was starting. Then things started getting better with the first Kinesis split keyboard, then they got awesome with the Kinesis Classic.

It's like I always tell people: the problem is, you don't know if you're prone to RSI issues until after you've already developed them. And once you've developed them, it's a long road to recovery.

Why WOULDN'T you invest $100 in a decent mechanical keyboard? It will last through several PC builds. It's probably the cheapest thing you'll ever buy for your computer, in the long run.

My problem is that the presentation of your opinion is so awfully absolutist that it's too easy to poke holes in.

>had a KBT pure pro for over a year. backlit, blue switches

I may never buy another keyboard again. It's actually the perfect one for me.

not really, because even though it looks like shit, it's still a mechanical keyboard and manages to cost less than any of the meme boards /g/ faps to.

Blues are CLICK CLACK really loudly.
Blacks are stronger reds.
Having tiny hands have nothing to do with switches.
Do you want to press hard to get a click?
Do you want a smooth light press to get a click?

The only thing positive I have to say about it is that I can absolutely see the value in having the extra row on the left.

I think greens are stiffer versions of blues, but blue is plenty stiff idk why you would want more.

I just got a key black/red/blue/brown tester set and was pretty unimpressed with all of them, green sounds nice because I did prefer blue

You need to type on a full keyboard to get the true feel of the switch. And even then, boards with the same switches mostly feel different. You spent money on a useless meme.

>> No.52008432


>> No.52008436

DIFFERENT boards with the same switches, I mean.

>> No.52008440

have you actually typed at length though? The whole point of blues is that you don't need to bottom out to actuate the key, so you end up using less force to type, move your fingers less etc. getting really stiff blue switches I think would defeat that purpose.

>> No.52008447

Any other switch that isnt black or blue is meme and hard as fuck to find and expensive.
Blue if you want to press hard and have fatigue
Blacks if you want linear and a hard press.
Or just get reds and stop being a faggot

>> No.52008460

I don't see what else I could do, I don't know anybody with a mech, let alone 4 of them each with different switches

I'm looking for greater actuation force than blues but with the same type of switch where you don't have to bottom out

>Or just get reds and increase your amount of typos substantially

Go to any computer store and try some out. Even best buy has mech keyboards fag.

Get reds and adjust the poll rate of your keyboard to fit your typing needs.
I've never had any issue beyond the first day or 3 with typos,and i bottom out every key

>these people asking about switches
I've seen this said multiple times and people tend to agree with it as a general consensus

Buckling Springs > Greens > Blues
Topre > Clears > Browns
Blacks > Reds

Any switch that isn't listed such as Alps, Gatorade™, or whatever else is being talked about is unlisted because they're meme-tier.

>Something that's the exact same as blues but with greater actuation force
This is what greens are.

But Gateron linears are better than any Cherry linears.
Also Matias linears are even better since they have built-in silencing.

yes, if you want something, you have to work for it

what is the actual hand feel difference between clicky/tacticle/linear?

Sorry you live in bum fuck nowhere, but that's not my problem faggot. How about you get an amazon prime trial, buy a few keyboards with free shipping, and then return all but the one you like. Not ideal, but it's your only option if you don't want to venture into society like a normal human being

Seconding >>52008536
I've spent a fair amount of time on an X220, and use 55g topres as my daily driver. Topre is close to the Thinkpad feeling, though 55g is probably a bit more force than the Thinkpad requires. I don't have the X220 near me right now to compare.

Fair point.
If you're going to spend the money on a luxury item like a Mechanical keyboard, why not save up a bit more and get something that's actually good like Topre?
Or just get a Buckling Spring since they're actually on the cheaper end of Mechanical keyboards anyway while still being actual good switches.

>> No.52008623

Well, reds and blacks are basically the same thing just with different spring strengths.
Same for greens and blues.
They'll probably have a brown which is garbo compared to clears.

Speak for yourself, but only 2 out of my 7 are Cherry. 1 is Gateron, 1 white ALPS, 1 Topre, 2 Buckling Spring.

I've thought about buying a cheap entry level board and replacing the caps with caps harvested from a plunger membrane keyboard.
Do any mechanical switches match this slot?

You're overreacting.

He didn't say
>"wow i don't understand why wouldn't know everything already, goawsh."
He said
>"I'm not sure why you think any would."
This isn't an inciting statement, but you decided to assume that he was speaking down to you when he was really just making note of being unsure why you would think your idea was correct, and was subsequently nice enough to actually answer your question that you are not, by any means, entitled to have answered at all. You're actually the one criticizing him for not knowing something, that being "why you think any would [work]".
Moreover, you even got a SECOND person answering your question >>52009201 here without ANY negative words, and not only did you not thank him, you are still continuing to insinuating that we're all "dumb".

You're not entitled to shit, let alone the ass kissing that you seem to be wanting.
