>> No.53540655

I'd go for it, but it depends on what you use it for

I personally would love to have my letters higher than the rest of the keyboard so that I can type without having to fumble around. Also, it might look really nice. If you only leave modifiers up/down, that might fuck it up.

My idea:

>get rid of legends on all the letters
>numbers above it, too
>have the rest labelled

If you get the keys lower, might give it that nice, lived-in look that makes it seem as if you did so much typing the keys actually went lower.

Well, I'm not sure what "fully customizable" means to you or to the guy who sold it to you, but you'll have some serious trouble finding aftermarket keycaps due to your bottom row being non-standard (see the tiny windows key and the slightly oversized mods and spacebar).

Other than that you can customize it as much as just about any other mech, if you're comfortable with soldering.

I think you're not understanding what I'm trying to tell you.

Your keyboard has a non-standard bottom row.
Most sets of aftermarket keycap sets do not accommodate for this kind of bottom row.
Aftermarket keycaps will fit most of your keyboard, but not the bottom row.
This will look ugly as shit.

Went ahead and gave it a go. Only sanded off the legend (key is the 0 key on numpad). There's a noticeable difference in texture now, but that might be because I used 180 grain sandpaper. Might get some finer grain and go over the entire top to even it out.

Should be perfectly compatible, zealios and gaterons are basically cherry clones.

I smoothed it out some more. It takes fucking ages, but it's getting there. Taking the last bit with an eraser and baking paper, since I don't have any sandpaper this fine.
Unless looking at it from the side (like the photo), it's impossible to see that anything was done to it.
I shoulda gone deeper with the rough sandpaper though, since the 0 is slightly visible still now that I got it smoothened out.

Is it worth it? Probably not. But it's possible.

Cherry Reds are objectively the best switch due to the following reasons:

1) They require the least amount of operating force relative to all the other cherry switches. Thus, less fatigue for your fingers.

2) There is no tactile actuation point. Thus, your mind does not need to overcome an unneeded physical bump when typing, allowing for faster typing.

3) They are the quietest of the cherry switches when typed on properly (hands hovering over keyboard and fingers pressing keys down lightly).

4) It feels like youre typing on a cloud of boobs.

>> No.53546704

Clears are weightier, they require more actuation force so you won't accidentally click keys. They are tactile like browns but don't feel like dipping your fingertips into hog shit.

This is my 2nd purcahse of Gaterons, first was Gateron clears (the really light linears). They feel less scratchy that Cherry which is important on lighter switches.
The tactile bump is a bit longer, so it's somewhere between an MX brown and MX clear in terms of length and size of tactile bump.
