Well, the where to buy pastebin and the FAQ is fine except for two things or so.

I don't think there's any point in having a buyers guide. People want different things from their keyboarding experience and the keyboard markets nowadays can quite often accommodate to more specific needs. We should just have a template that people who are looking for recommendations can fill in and post here, like in the headphone general.

Man, Ducky really fucked it up with their Shine 4 and Shine 5 design. That casing is just fugly and the 'cable rounting' is a joke. Basically everything about it seems inferior to the earlier Shine models to me - from the fake aluminium finish to the omission of fold out feet.

>>53454110
See pic related. Bottom row modifiers are different sizes (standard bottom row has the modifiers all the same size) so you'll end up with a larger spacebar, and other weirdly sized modifiers, which in return makes it a pain to find keycap sets since aftermarket keycaps are marketed towards enthusiasts. Any enthusiast grade keyboard (corsair keyboards are not included in this) has a standard bottom row (unless you've got some winkeyless custom, but those people already know what they're after).

tl;dr non-standard bottom row almost no keycap selection

Not really that picky. Backlight would be nice but not a requirement and if they have Backlight I would like to be able to change the colors. Most Backlight are red, blue or green and I hate them all (I could change all the LEDs if needed but it takes a lot of time) I would however like to have the numpap keys. I see in this thread that not many keyboards seems to have that part for some reason. Why is this?

I have never used macro keys so this is useless to me (can't figure out when I would ever need them) but if you have a good idea feel free to tell me ;) other then that as I said I have close to no experience with mechanical keyboards do don't really know what to expect and what is considered "must have"

This one looks really nice. Any way to cut the cost a bit? Might just be more expensive in Sweden, about $200 and to import it is a no go. With shipping and customs it would be even more expensive. Could I cut cost if I grav a keyboard without the numpad or something?

Oh I see.

Well, if you're in Europe shit's going to be expensive. See if you can get the Ducky Shine 4 any cheaper or take a look at some other Ducky keyboards if you want lighting of some sort, but you won't really be getting around expensive shipping and customs raping you.

Otherwise there's a variety of non-backlit keyboards which would probably fit your budget a bit more.

Sup Germanfag here. I'm looking for a replacement of my Razer BlackWidow (old model with MX blue). It starts double tapping unfortunately both for the S and L key.

I was on the verge of buying a G710 (blue non plus), I don't even mind the tackiness that much, but I heard it's supposed to break after a few years, and I don't want that.

Now I heard Ducky is supposed to be good on this board, but they have so many models but relatively few of them ship here (none to Amazon but I found a big shop that sells them)

I want
>solid construction
>media keys, at least for volume (I use the FN keys on my Razer all the time but I wish they were dedicated)
>don't really need backlight or RGB shit

Pic related are the ones that I can buy.

I tend towards Blues again, but want to try Reds, Browns, Blacks and Clears.

Speaking of which, does someone know normie keyboards that they sell in electronic markets which have reds, blacks or clears, so that I can try them out?
I know I can try out browns on a G710, but that's about it.

>>53455190
Check out the WASD barebones (don't get their caps, they're shit). Get that and a nice set of keycaps and you're golden (just be aware of the fact that iso caps aren't that commonly available).

Otherwise you could get a cooler master (not the backlit ones) and a set of keycaps, I think that may even fit your budget despite shipping cost and all that jack.

I live in the middle of Europe, this isn't a cheap hobby, even less so for Europeans.

>> No.53455661

Oooh custome keycaps are awesome. Just have to find some nice ones. But the WASD barebone seems to be a good choice for me. But I will keep a lock out for the ducky as well. But yes this is expensive for us in Europe it seems. But I only need one good keyboard and then I'm at :)

>> No.53455729

I would choose the Legend, because of the aluminum case top. Ducky One is also a very good choice if its the non-backlit version with PBT caps.
But shine 4, 5 and regular backlit One wouldnt be bad choices either.

Just try to avoid the Zeros. They used to be nice budget keyboards, but since a year or so all the versions are comming with KBT switches instead of cherries.

>> No.53455864

Ok thx, Legend looks pretty solid, but 150 bucks, shit's expensive, yo. But if they hold longer than my Razer shit, it's probably worth it.

If I'm shelling out that much money though, it's probably worth considering the Shine as well.

Yeah, the difference is pretty much only the RGB..

Legend has blue leds, while shine 5 is RGB.
Legend has a aluminum top shell (bottom is still plastic), while shine 5 is all plastic.
Shine 5 has better keycaps, ABS doubleshot vs the lasered / painted ABS from the Legend.

If you wont be changing your keycaps with something better in the future, maybe shine V is a better option.

I'm pretty new to this but I kinda wanna buy into this meme. I know nothing about mechanical keyboards and use a free dell one. Would be happy if I could get some direction or maybe some models I could look at

I type and also play games a lot. I looked at the switches and the guides in the pastebin so I'm guessing I should get Cherry browns? like I said, I use a free dell one, so I have no experience in feedback or how hard I type, though I don't think it's light. It also says it's babbie's first, so I guess I fit there.

I looked in the mechanicalkeyboards.com place and the ducky shine 5 is a top seller and has browns, is it good? i don't really need the rainbow LEDs though, though some sort of backlight could be cool. Again, I have no experience with that. As to price range I guess I'd like to keep it on the lower end, but not really cheap, something around 100 like the guide says would be cool

All that said, can anyone give me some suggestions and feedback?

>> No.53458492

1. What size keyboard do you want? Can you live without the numpad? Can you live without the function keys? Can you live without the arrow keys?

2. Do you see yourself customizing your keyboard or just using what you're given?

3. Do you need some non-ANSI layout?

4. Are you OK with buying Chinese knockoff boards that might not as good in terms of quality but are a lot cheaper?

When it comes to switches, it's become a meme that browns are bad, so I'd recommend buying a switch tester (essentially a tiny board with a whole bunch of different switches on it), or buying your keyboard from somewhere where it'd be easy to return or swap it if you hate your switch choice.

A Ducky would be fine, although you can probably just get the Ducky One if you don't need the RGB of the Shine.

Coolermaster also has their XT series of fullsize keyboards, they're pretty popular when it comes to the popular brands (as you've probably read you should avoid Razer, Logitech, etc unless you have a reaally good reason).

Das (what other anon mentioned) and WASD also make full sizes, but they're more expensive (without arguably a good reason).

The Shine 5 has better caps than the Shine 4, the Shine 4 also has green and clear switch variants though, so if you want those you'll want to get the Shine 4.

WASD caps are thin ABS, they're not worth the price at all.

They have the weakest tactile bump of all tactile cherries. Compared to any other tactile cherry they feel like linears, but compared to linears they feel like there's dirt stuck in the middle.

Browns are marketed as if they were quiet blues, but they really aren't.

I didn't say anything bad about reds.

And yes, browns suck. Compare them to any other tactile cherry switch and you'll notice that browns have a weak as shit tactile bump. Get ergoclears if you want the weight of browns but with proper tactility.

On another note, I'm not sure what kind of rubber domes you've used in the past, because last I checked linear switches felt nothing like rubber domes.

someone tell me the actuation point of K120

dont give me a bunch of bullshit, just give me the official testing and so i can tell if Reds or Browns are more close

those are the only 2 that are an option cause i dont want noise, but i want to know if reds are closer

also it'll have to be a lowprofile keyboard cause i started on a laptop and like the close/lowprofile aspect of it, also i take it to-and-from my knees since i have a based recliner station

>> No.53473447

>>53473366
Your K120 actuates at the bottom of the keypress, I don't know how much travel it has, so I can't tell you how close this will be to mx-style switches.

mx-style switches (all of them) activate halfway into the keypress at 2mm.
This is no matter of reds or browns being closer, they're both the same in terms of actuation.

If you want a low-profile keyboard, get some low profile keycaps or the cherry mx board 3.0 which has low profile stock caps (wasn't a huge fan of them personally).

And browns have the weakest tactile bump of all tactile cherries, if browns or reds are the only things you are considering, go for reds.

Oh, I'll doubt you'll find measurements on that anywhere since this varies a lot between different rubber dome keyboards. You could measure it yourself with some weights though.

are they like the GPU world, where its better than the stock boards?

or do they have to have a "standard" before cherry allows them to be made?

also its highly unlikely i wont just buy MK120's for the rest of my life (actually didnt even know about the MK till recently) since my mouse usually wears out or gets old after a while and my keyboard's USB cord usually wears out cause i move it to-and-from my lap and the cord is hanging alot, but the K120 design has it sorta looped around a bit to take the snap off th actual entry point

No, nothing of the sort is the case.

There are some bluetooth keyboards. Check out matias (uses alps clones instead of cherry switches) keyboards or filco or varmillo keyboards, I think they also have some bluetooth keyboards.

And no, there's no keyboard that can be charged via a wireless connection. If we could charge devices via bluetooth or wifi we wouldn't need charging cables for anything.

I never formally learned typing, I mean I can type English characters really well at about 80-90 wpm actually writing something and about 100wpm copying something relatively simple but using numbers and special characters (like in programming) I end up slowing to a crawl because I just constantly mistype, I'm not sure what's wrong, is there anyway to fix that? Like typing practice that is specifically for programming? And how soon can I expect results? Am I just doomed to type at 40wpm programming? I see people at demo conventions typing writing lines of code at blazing fast and I can barely keep up with the program let alone imagine who they're typing that quickly.
