Phase one of my small DIY project done.
All switches desoldered in less than 2 hours, not bad for a rookie i guess.

So far 1 switch destroyed because i was curious how does it look like inside and bent metal leaves too much. And 2 more stems broken during the keycaps removal, even using the wire puller.

Are these alps so squishy or am I a fucking troglodyte?

Question for those with HHKB, how do live with out dedicated media keys. I want to get one but the inability to use playpause/next/prev is insane to me. Are there workarounds I'm not aware of? (I use win/mac/linux for different things so things like autohotkey are ew.)

magic trackpad + bettertouchtool (really fucking good piece of software)

I've seen realforce caps in various colors (would also fit the HHKB for the most part) on amazon.jp, but I'm not sure why'd you want to replace the HHKB anyway. Unless you're willing to novatouch-stem-mod it.

>> No.53595732

Hmm, if I go for the expensive stuff I'd probably go for some Leopold caps, damn they make nice ones.

>> No.53595763

Using bettertouchtool already(mainly for window snapping because OSX window management is ass by default and a few other hotkeys.)

Guessing I could use it to bind some funky ass key combinations that I'd never use to the media keys. Just a pita to set up the bindings in 3 oses I guess.

Other than the privilege of waving my internet dick around, what do I actually gain from buying something like a Ducky or a Filco over a cheaper option like a Rosewill or a Coolermaster?

>> No.53595889

CM is hit or miss quality wise. For the most part they're super solid and not only a value but genuinely good. No experience with Rosewill peripherals but in general Rosewill is pretty decent.

>> No.53595978

but for the boards that are generally regarded as good, such as the quickfire rapid? Rosewill has the RK-9000 which is supposed to be pretty well built as well.
What I'm wondering is would I gain anything from spending more and buying something slightly fancier like a Ducky one?

>> No.53596012

>quickfire rapid
I'm using the 1st gen QuickFire Rapid and love it. Only replacing it "because I want to" and it's been a couple of years. I don't think you really gain anything other than what's stated on the spec sheet, switch type/leds/etc. The quality of the Rapid is pretty good, the keys have a shine but that's to be expected with the keycap material.

>> No.53596082

With Leopold I've heard you have to make sure you get the right keys you need. It's also never easy to find a buyer with the right look you want, no matter the brand. I guess you have to scour the internet and get lucky.

Hey guys, I'm kinda new to mech keyboards, but looking around and trying to filter out the memes, I came up with 2 alternatives. The shine 5 with browns or this one https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1525

I know they're both entry level and it's kind of why I'm getting one of them, I'm okay with brown switches, though I'd like clears, I can't find many in stock.

Can you give me your insight into which one I should get? I don't know the ins and outs of the models, outside of the description, since it seems to be only the variety of the LED colors, Is this right? I have no experience with backlighting, but would generally like to have it, and both do. Anyways. any opinions would be appreciated

Filco Minila Air

>> No.53606085

I once again disagree.
especially if you use programs that have macro+arrow key commands. for example enjoy editing text in OS X where highlighting the last typed word in a text editor is Alt+Shift+Fn+alpha key.
try to do this shit quickly and you WILL make typos, because unlike the arrow key island, there's no tactile feedback when trying to find whatever alpha keys your 60% keyboard has assigned as arrows. and this is coming from someone who has been typing at 130+ WPM for 20 years, so I certainly have no issue locating keys.

it's just asinine to put arrows under an fn layer when there's clearly enough space to put it, and worse when there are dedicated keys for fucking right shift and tilde.

I also put an orange Alps slider into a Matias switch and holy fucking shit, this is weird.
It's basically impossible to not bottom out. Once you reached the threshhold the key will travel the whole 4mm. It's pretty loud and the bottomout is pretty rough, but I think I could like this switch. A lot.

I tried lubing them. Things got worse. For some reason (used krytox 103/205 50:50) the upstroke is accompanied by an annoying click now.
I didn't do anything to the springleaf, but it is still like that for some reason. Maybe it is because of the heavy use?
One even started doing this without getting lubed. I opened it, cleaned it from the dust and reassembled it, just for it to start clicking on random occasions. I don't know what's going on there.

However, as I said here >>53618000 I tried to use the springleaf of the Matias switches and it actually makes the switch feel quite nice. There is no click (although the Matias QC leafs come prelubed) and the switches feel way nicer that way. It's hard to point out, but they feel "newer".

How exactly does clickmodding work? If it's just bending the springleaf a little further, I tried that and it feels quite horrible to be honest.

There are two tabs on the bottom on both clicky and tactile SKCM alps, but tactile have another set on the top as well (prevents the click leaf from bending inward as much and springing back to smack the outer housing, which causes the click). Bending the upper set of tabs inward to be flat against the back of the click leaf will make a tactile leaf more like a clicky one.

fucking seriously? that's just ridiculous.

>> No.53619223

Never tried the Zealios, but lubed ergo-clears, which are supposed to feel similar.
Matias QC has a similarly strong pronounced tactile bump and is much, much smoother. After the tactile bump the switch nearly instantly bottoms out, which is cushioned by the rubberfeet (I always guessed that's what Topre feels like, but I never had a Topre board).
However, the keywobble is fucking insane, which makes the board ouder than it could be. You can solve that by drowning the fucker in lube though, but it also makes the keys a little mushier. Also, lube the stabilizers, they are just annoyingly loud.
To be honest I don't think that the Matias QC will be much quieter than the Zealios if you use the standard case (of Matias/KBP), since both are quite shitty.
Except for that, the switches are great. Responsive (no double-tap issue), nicely weighted, very tactile and easy to customize (no desoldering required to open the switch).

Long story short, I guess they should feel like Zealios, but depress faster after crossing the threshold (like all Alps switches they collapse, while MX type becomes linear again). If that's what you like about Alps you should like them a lot.

Not every set - most of them. Good keysets are (also) made for ISO. It's the international standard.
Why the fuck should i use a keyboard that doesn't match my location or the international standard? It doesn't make any sense. Buying a ANSI-Keyboard just for the caps is like buying a sportscar if you need a truck, just for the looks. It's stupid.

Because the standard makes no sense. If it was ANSI vs ISO, sure, but its ANSI vs ISO-UK, ISO-PT, ISO-ES, ISO-Nordic, ISO-EVERY FUCKING IRRELEVANT COUNTRY IN EUROPE.

>> No.53625273

The layout is the same in every fucking relevant country in europe and also worldwide (it isn't EN, it's ISO) only the legends are different. USA is also member of ISO. ANSI is a irrelevant national standard of one single american country.

No. Why the hell should enter be harder to press? there is one switch under the cap - same on ANSI keyboards. On the other hand it's bigger and therefore easier to hit.
I'm a left shift user - what is this nightmare-theory based on?

You cant.

Topre spring is very different from cherry springs. On topre the spring is there just to activate the switch, the resistence of the keypress is due to the rubber dome only.

>that happens to be the size of europe
but only less than the half of the citizens... And it's not only Europe to use ISO. The rest of the world uses international standards.

It's ok if you want to be a special snowflake, but i want to use something that make sense.

The enter key is further away, not that it requires more force.

The left shift thing depends on how your hand rests, but mine would be right on the space between the two keys.

depends on your habits. Same is me with ANSI. I already own an ANSI keyboard. I just don't like it because the small enter key and i miss some hardly accessible characters.

Horizontal position is different based on row. Shift had a higher frequency of use compared top the rest of those, as well, thus making it a priority.
