Backlight is still in progress. Left side isn't working. Keycaps are annoying, still missing a labeled 1.5u shift.

That large gap isn't really there. The panels aren't sceewed in and have shifted a bit so it looks like a gap.

I like thumb cluster, tgough the far keys can be awkward to hit at times. I like having them there though.

Reminder to avoid angling your wrists in any direction when typing. Wrist rests are suicide if you rest on them while your fingers are moving.
Angle your arms instead and try to sit straight. Resting on your forearms or elbows is safer than using a wrist rest.
Also, think about the height of your desk, the width of your keyboard and how your chair is adjusted to your body shape.

Stay safe and avoid wrist pain.

>How exactly is the third pic fucking up my wrists?
Your fingers are actually controlled by muscles in your palm and forearm. Tendons from the forearm muscles as well as important nerves go through your wrist using the carpal tunnel.
Bending your wrist tightens up the carpal tunnel and causes strain, especially if done for long sessions and while those finger controlling tendons are active.

I still haven't made my choice but my eagerness calmed down a little. I invested around 100$ in electronic parts, soldering station, couple of µC's and old alps keyboard, just for fun maybe doing my own diy 65%~ when I get some experience with that used crap.

You mean pbt caps? I'd appreciate the site as long as it's available in europe.

I could totally use matias but i realised what really pushed me off from typing on my previous and current notebook is the slippery of ABS keys. I always thought my fingers are sweating untill i lurked more.

I couldn't use white alps that I harvested as they are clacky and pingy af. They are good as first DIY thou, as I can make simple 10~ button controller for my brothers flight simulators and train.

No I mean a 66% keyboard kit.
Abs keycaps aren't slippery by default, most have a nice texture. Look at these tai hao ones for example, I guess you can see the texture. Most backlight keycaps don't have any texture because it's simply clear abs with some paint on top, which kills the texture. Dunno why most Laptop keyboards are so slippery though.

Problem with abs is that it looses its texture with time, but that takes at least a year of HEAVY use. Like 130 wpm for 8h every day. Luckily Tai Hao is dirt cheap though.

Ah entire kit to put a DIY from parts, now i get it. Thanks but that's not my game.
For me it's like people buying lego mindstorms claiming they 'build' robots.
No offense neither for them nor people who buy these kits. But all i need are switches and caps as obviously they are too hard or even impossible to be made with the same quality.

I won't even use a teensy as a regular 2$ atmega is all i need.

Keycaps on my notebook also have some kind of texture on them. My capslock is comfy to touch but more used keys are simply disgusting. That's why I'm using my old membrane yellow samsung now and wll use a mechanical in the close future.

Ofc there is a difference between one abs caps and another, my exerience is equal to zero in that matter so I can only repeat other people opinions so far.

400x200x0,3 aluminum sheet costs around 4$ here. Im sure most places selling those can also cut and bend them as you wish for less than 15-20$ (material included).

I'm not sure if 3mm is stable enough but even if not, prices of thicker ones are not much higher.

So the easiest answer is teh Cooler Master. Easily accesible, one of the cheapest mechanicals with good quality, nothing fancy about them (gaymeer stuff etc), both 80% and 100% factor.

Reds would be good for you, but scissor switches still have some membrane underneath right? So they have some kind of tacticity, if you don't mind the clackiness (but as a lot of people stated, after some time you WILL) consider blues.

Speaking purely from the usability perspective of the layout, the Matias 60% loses big points from me on account of the short spacebar. I'm a right thumb kind of guy, so that right alt would just get in my way.

I have only used MX Blue, Red, Brown and Topre 55g for long periods of time. I have also tried MX Black and Topre 45g for short periods.

Topre 55g is my main board now; if I were to buy another I would consider going Topre 45g, as I am a pretty light typist.

Are you me? I ended up just getting one of the less branded CM keyboards as a starter board. They're probably the most sane of the big manufacturers.

For keycaps sometimes Signature Plastics and GMK sets include Nordic kits. I've also heard that imsto might do some high quality dye sub PBT with Nordic legends soon.
Of course none of this is cheap and requires a bit of lurking on forums and group buys to find. The ISO market is growing, slowly, but it's a shame that there's no good source for news regarding it.

Leopold makes some pretty sturdy boards and they often come with some seriously thick PBT keycaps. The switch choice depends a bit on taste, but reds are pretty standard if you don't go with clicky blues.

Something in-between like the Magicforce might suit you, right in your price range and has the reds. If you want to hear the click though, blues and greens are the only way. Clears will give you the click feel, without the sound.

Look at this chart and start with the one reference you have, brown switches.

Want the switch to resist a bit more when you press it down? Go down to the heavier switches.
Want a switch that doesn't have a bump you can feel? Go left to the linears.
Want more of a bump you can feel? Go down the tactile column for a bigger silent bump or go right to the louder clicky switches which also have a more pronounced bump.

Of course trying is best, but you can at least get some idea of what you want.
