Also, pls stop asking for cheap keyboards with a budget of $50 or less.
Either spend $120 on a nice keyboard now, or spend $70 on a nice budget board and you'll inevitably spend $40 on replacing the shitty stock caps.

I was thinking of getting myself the green or yellow switch in the das keyboard division zero. Has anyone here ever used the board or these switches? I know at the moment they are exclusive and there is nothing that states who actually manufactures them like how razer has kaihl.

>> No.53782295

For the guy who said he has a coolmaster quickfire rapid i and he replaced the keys and it's perfect. I have a few questions for you if you're still here.

How much did replacing the keycaps cost you?

How do you like the white LEDs?

If you don't mind, could you post a picture of it and if camera can capture it a picture of what it looks like with the LED's in the dark?

I'm stuck between the quickfire TK and the rapid i. I just don't think white LED's would look too good.

Copied from other thread:
Honestly, I have the backlighting turned off mostly, or at lowest brightness setting. I spent ~$50 on some pbt Vortex keycaps in ISO nordic layout, which I'm happy with. The glow effect of the backlighting is nice, since the new keycaps aren't transparent. Can't take pics right now, sorry, maybe when I'm back from work but that won't be in another 10 hours or so.
The good thing about white backlighting is that it's much more subtle and can go with any kind of keycaps, whereas otherwise you're limited to colors that would fit your backlighting.

>> No.53782360

Yeah actually, I just realized that. White backlighting goes with any color.

Advertised as black, but they're more a very dark grey - which is even better IMO. Goes amazingly with the case (which by the way is fucking delicious, it's top-tier plastic, goddamn it feels good), since the caps are just slightly lighter than the case.
Fuck it, I still have some time before work, here's a pic. I don't have any curtains, so I can't show you in dark area. Currently I have the backlighting on, but set to minimum brightness.
Sorry about the mess.

>> No.53782518

Hahaha, you don't have to worry about the mess. I appreciate your help.

Why'd you choose that color by the way? Prefer it over the black clear keys that came with it?

I'm tempted to buy it right now because i'm convinced, but i'm still new to mechanical keyboards and I was going to see if bestbuy has a keyboard with MX Blues that I can try out to make sure that I want Blues.

>> No.53782568

Well, I bought the keycaps thinking they'd be completely black, but was pleasantly surprised that they were not completely black.
Also, the main reason is because I wanted pbt. Once you feel the difference between ABS (which the stock keycaps are made of) and PBT keycaps, you don't ever want to type on ABS again. ABS gets greasy, gets shiny and just feels bad and cheap. PBT literally doesn't get shiny, has great texture always, and are way more durable too.

Also, I ordered these keycaps mostly because it is literally the only fucking set of keycaps with legends in PBT plastic for ISO nordic layout. And not literally in the meme way, literally as in fucking literally. So I was lucky that they actually look and work really nicely. Just don't buy them from corus-kb's website.

>> No.53782609

The stock keys on the keyboard come with a ANSI layout right?

Would you mind sharing your email so I can ask you about your keys after I get the keyboard (i'll post my email on here and you can just email me) or at the very least reply to this when you're out of work with a link to where you bought your keys from? I'm definitely going to buy some PBT at some point.

>> No.53782643

sorry for being a faggot,
but what board is that?

>> No.53782671

The quickfire rapid-i comes in both ISO layout and ANSI layout. Layout is decided by the keyboard, since ISO has 1 more key than ANSI, so you can't just switch it around. But if you're in the US, you're gonna want ANSI.
Generally everything is in ANSI unless explicitly stating it's in ISO. Which is fucking dumb, but 'Murrica.
Feel free to post your email, I'll send you an email then.

Browns have the weakest tactile bump of all tactile cherries. You'll find them to feel closer to reads than to blues if you type fast and with any amount of force, since you'll just about blow right through the tactile bump.
Hence, dirty reds.

Microsofts intellimouse 1 is suppose to be one of the best fps mouses ever made and zowie attempts to emulate that from what I read. Microsoft does now have an intellimouse 3. Intellimouse 1.1 is like $20 on ebay.

A lot of mice are $40-60 so be prepared to save up. If you're into gaming get optical, if you're just dicking around you could probably find a cheaper

Got a magicforce coming in my direction, so I'll be replacing the kalih blues on that one with blacks and reds for the modifiers, maybe clears if I can find some good place for them.

The reds belong to a friend, but he put them in my custody since he can't really do anything with them. I'll be replacing the cherry reds on his pok3r together with the switches on my magicforce.

I've also got a split keyboard with RGB underlighting that you can adjust with potentiometers for each half planned. I'm not going to build that anytime soon, but I'm just collecting parts as time goes by since I'm not really in a hurry.

Will probably get a clueboard with matias QC next, I want to make a keyboard with an entirely translucent acrylic case and I also want to try out matias switches.

I still have the receipts. Each time they were out of stock on the old version they let me pay the difference in price (new price, no reduction because of age) and get the new one.
Currently sitting here with a Deathadder Chroma and they fucking paid me back $5 when I got it since it was actually cheaper than the previous. I don't even care about RGB lighting or the next extreme DPI setting they've added.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a comfortable mouse with a good sensor, but damn, they break quickly. One just died out of nowhere, one had the scroll wheel stop registering and two started double clicking (commonly referred to as chattering when it's a keyboard switch).

Is there a way to modify the "kana" key and maybe increase the length of the space bar?

Btw I was mainly look at Filcos (minila at less than 10000 yen).
I also found a topre realforce (91UBK NG01B0) at 15000 yen, is it worth it?
My ideal board would be a 60% plus arrows (like the leopold one).
Any suggestions?

HMM... I'd go with the poker. Unless your partial to matias switches then obv the v60.

What color caps look best on a white keyboard?

What does the switch stem look like? that looks familiar. I found a keyboard at once that was super smooth linears but it was XT so I didnt bother for my collection. I'm wondering if thats the same though. I remember being really impressed.

Can't find it nowhere and online would be too expensive.
And no, I was not able to find it on japanese sites.
I can settle also for a tkl.
As last resource even a 60% would be good... but only if there is the possibility to use those kana keys in some ways.

Thinking in building my own custom 40%, I tried the planck and honestly, I can't get into the ortholinear layout so i was thinking in something like pic related (planck for reference),

I am pretty much programming all the time and I really use the bracket keys so i guess that 1 more key on each row is worth, any experience over here?

Realforces are always worth it. Filcos are always worth it. Why not look at choc minis or something? Theyre cheaper in price and quality but they have an amazing layout.

Really nice idea
Wanted to get a planck but that dont want to get used to that

>> No.53803643


Thank you very much!
However I have searched and I don't have the possibility to get a choc without spending way more than the price of the filcos that I have found here in Tokyo.
So I still have filco VS realforce, I think I will either search for an alternative or a way to fix the layout thing.
At least now I know that those are not bad options.

The first looks really nice. I'm trying to get used to an 80s layout on my recently finished keyboard.

>nice idea
Planck felt actually weird, and so did ergodox, but i guess that is just getting used to it and idk if it's that worth for a programmer/bash user when I'm already used to the movements and the ../ , I also changed a little bit the middle layout so my ocd is satisfied

I got the magicforce because it's quite cheap, has a layout that won't get in the way of aftermarket keycaps and is said to be good quality for the price.

Clueboard because I want to try matias switches and I want to have a translucent case, clueboard seems to be a great option to go with both of these.

I'll probably be pursuing an education in electrical engineering after finishing my current education this summer, so apart from knowing some more about what I'm doing I'll also hopefully have access to some equipment. My dream would be to actually have a proper PCB for the split keyboard.

Nope, just regular red gaterons. Should have turned the exposure on my camera down a bit before taking the picture.

Id go with the RF. Those keycaps are different from the normal RF keycaps in the US but they're still probably better than the filcos. Topres cases are solid too not to say that filcos aren't but I don't have any experience with the milinia specifically. Both companies have sold products but I always have full confidence in the RF line while costar has made some just okay keyboards before.

Though I didn't really care very much about the price at the time that I purchased it. Once you want a certain thing enough the price becomes largely irrelevant.

What else do you find in Tokyo other than realforces and filcos? I'm assuming that you're in Akihabara?

I'll be traveling there myself in a few months.

I went to both akihabara and shinjuku.
I found tons of Filcos, one or two realforces, a good amount of hhkb, one ducky, razer, lg, one matias and some other keybords at lower prices.
However I think that this was an unlucky period because yodobashi camera in akihabara was almost empty (especially with respect to bic camera in shinjuku).

And as I was saying before, everything (but two or three models) was in jap layout.

Yesterday my genovation cp24 macropad arrived. And today both a set of blank white pbt caps and a set of front-printed nordic ISO pbt caps arrived.

Now all I need is for my beige/grey keycaps to arrive so I can put those on a pok3r I'm about to order.

is it possible to do the following setup on a pok3r?

hold capslock -> IJKL become arrow keys while caps is held

activative capslock -> IJKL become arrow keys until i deactivate caps

>> No.53808578

I'm quite sure that the first one is possible (you should be able to switch capslock to fn with the dip switches on the bottom), don't know about the second option.
