Still really beautiful (although I'm biased, purple being me favourite colour) but the Windows logos really bother me. Were there any alternatives available to you that wouldn't be nonsensical?

That was a KBP V60, right? I'm looking at getting one, so I have a question: is it correct of me to assume there's nothing wonky like an Fn key popping up on the left side if you flip it off on the right side? Seems unlikely it would be the case but I'm trying to avoid nasty surprises.

What do you consider clacky? All mx-style switches will be at least as noisy as browns due to the upstroke noise.

I guess you could try silenced Topre or Alps/matias switches.

You mean MX whites or the white Cherry OG?
Cherry OG Dyesubs you have to look for some G81 SAD
I guess your best chance for Cherry MX Whites would be a nice groupbuy or something. If you're from europe there is a constant GB on DT.
Remember to get some extra, since there are 2 kinds of whites and they come premixed for some reason. One has a softer click and the other is basically a Cherry MX Green.
Sadly there were no other 1.25u Mods available. But I'm okay with the windows logo, there are worse symbols out there.

You misunderstand, friend. I know it's possible to remove it on the right side; what I want to be sure of is that when you remove it, it doesn't automatically add one on the LEFT side without you putting one there yourself. Hence forcing the existence of one.

I don't blame you for misunderstanding. This is a very far-fetched scenario and I'm just being paranoid.

Recently decided to pick up my first Mechanical Keyboard. I am undecided on what switch I will be using yet but I've picked the Ducky One. Is there any glaring flaw with this keyboard I'm unaware of or is it a solid first KB?

Also if anyone knows as I can't tell from the pictures I've seen, does it have a gloss finish? That would be a real negative for me.

Topre is well-regarded, but I don't know if I'd classify it as "king". Some people prefer complicated Alps, other buckling spring. I mean, I could say Honeywell Hall effect is the king of linear and IBM beam spring is the king of clicky, but even if true that doesn't do you much good.

This is not the same anon, but at my work, most of the workspaces are set up so that the comfortable position of the mouse falls on grooves in the desk. I was able to rearrange my workspace (and I cleaned the fucking mouse) so that this doesn't happen but a mousepad that I can bring from pc to pc is a lot cheaper (and easier) than a mouse if I ever have to use someone elses pc. That groove in the desk will fuck up the tracking on all the cheap mice and probably the expensive ones too and it can get stuck if the desk isn't perfectly level.

Also, I've noticed a lot of gunk buildup on the bottom of the mice near the pads on mice that don't have mousepads here. It may just be that some people have cleaner workspaces though.

Well you just gave me one, and successfully changed my opinion on mouse pads being (completely)obsolete.

alsa its not as bad as when the gunk built up on ball mice, how it would cover the rollers in a band that was mm's thick and looked like a rubber band or a gasket on the roller. god people are gross.

They're solid boards, you might be better off buying a Unicomp and not have to deal with the hassle of cleaning and bring the Model-M up to maintenance.
Unicomp used to have cheap Model-Ms, but over the last couple of years, they caught on to how popular they were becoming within the Mech Enthusiast community, and increased prices on their boards. They still aren't priced poorly, but I'm not sure if I'd say that they're worth their current price. However, if it's your first mech, it might be better to start on something that's newer but uses the exact same mechanisms and design.

There are also cheap Cherry and Alps boards, with Cherry being the most expandable.

It wouldn't hurt to buy the Model-M if that's what you're interested in, though. Just wanted to give you my two cents.

I have browns, and i hate mushy feeling when using them. Does topre better in terms of tactile response?

>> No.53307374

everything does better than browns. Even reds as they at least don't lie about being 'tacticle'

Nah it's a good starter board. If the case is like any of ducky's other boards then it will be a matte/brushed plastic.

What is the matter with the ABS keycaps?

I understand that the material is worse in touch that PBT.
I can see myself on my 5$ kb that keycaps shine and are sticky after some time.

But I don't get it why doubleshot ABS keycaps are considered to be good? I mean, the letters won't fade ok, but above two factors still apply to them isn't it?

>> No.53307632

it's just poorfag rationalization.

there is no need to use abs in 2016.

I was the guy who posted about buying that White ALPS keyboard for 3 dollars.

I finally plugged it in after cleaning it to test it and of fucking course..

The W key wont register.

I took off the cap and fucking ruined it because I'm a retard, so I took the pause/break key and replaced it and it has the nice click sound.

The weird thing is..

If I press the W spring thing on the inside it registers the keystroke. But with the cap on. Nothing. How do I fix this shit?
