Is RGB a meme? Honestly don't know if i'd benefit from it at all, but the ability to change them depending on my setup seems tempting.

My current keyboard is a Corsair K30, but the rubber domes are really starting to strain my fingers.

>> No.53851180

Everything here is a meme. If you want a keyboard with RGB, then get a Ducky.
Stay away from Corshit and Razer.

Mechanical keyboards are expensive because they use discrete switches for every key, which cost a whole lot more to produce than just two sheets of membrane and a bunch of rubber domes. On top of that, mechanical keyboards are a very niche market compared to the general keyboard market, since most people have the bliss of not giving a shit on what they're typing, hence things get more expensive.

Learn to touch-type you unholy pleb.
No seriously, backlighting is only there for aesthetics, if you actually need it to know which keys you're hitting you should either turn on a lamp or learn to touch type.

That's funny. I once got a steelseries apex raw, which was quite fine but I wasn't totally happy with due to how easily it collects fingerprints and the retarded key spacing. Though the spacebar was nice.

The funny part is that it stopped working for no reason whatsoever within less than 36 hours of it being delivered to my doorstep. Did not work on my computer, did not work on any other computer.

I got a refund and bought my first mechanical.
That was less then a year ago.

maybe it was some kind of defect, but I've treated it pretty well and for some reason the paint started peeling and flaking everywhere a few weeks after I bought it

It's not as big as Massdrop so the deals can vary. But they do ship from the UK so there shouldn't be any added tax or import fees.
If the site can stay afloat and expand their selection it's probably Europe's best hope for group buys. The keycaps usually support both ISO + ANSI and the owner wants to pressure manufacturers into adding German, French and Nordic legend support in the future.

>why you'd think to find discussions about cars on a technology board when there's a board dedicated to cars.
Probably because the car board is dedicated towards just talking about cars,
while the technology board had garage threads in the past on /g/ when /g/ actually had people who didn't live with their parents, had their own garages, and knew how to use tools to mod cars, and do general metal working and welding, and adding computer technology into their cars.

>but I see a fair amount of technology related discussion on /g/.
Keyboard keycaps, ricing your desktop, jerking over which OS is better for gayming or facebook, stuffing a GPU into a motherboard, and talking about how your headphone is better by taping crystals on it, ain't technology. It's just teenagers getting their mommy and daddy to buy them a computer and then trying to jerk on /g/ for tech cred because they think they know how to use the computer and the peripherals.

After 3 months of waiting (manufacturer fucked up) my dark gray NPKC blanks arrived from Massdrop. I've decided to pair them with my black enjoypbt blanks to create my own Dolch colorway (in motherfucking ISO).
They're both thick sets with enjoypbt being maybe just slightly thicker. It's all PBT plastic and both have the same low Cherry profile so they fit together well.

I've also got a matching blank enjoypbt RGB modifiers kit ordered that will probably look nice with it too. If nothing else I really want the included red PBT escape key.

No? That set on MechSupply is by the German company GMK and is made of ABS rather than PBT.
Their ABS is the best and thickest in the world though, and those double shot legends would be almost impossible to create with PBT.

Dam I wish I had $200 to waste because you can get a new premade ergodox on eBay, with no keycaps but not bad regardless

Sorry for the late reply, ( >>53871606 here.)
Do you have an email I can get a hold of you through? Where are you located as well?

>> No.53885253

I'm an idiot for not reading properly. Honestly I have no idea about anything when it comes to all the custom keycaps and shit, but i'm trying to find out more.

Also in your image, i'm guessing the one on the right is a shitty cheap keycap compared to the one on the left? What's the difference between them?

Search for 'Nixie clock' anywhere. They're pretty damn expensive mind, since almost all the tubes used in them are new old stock

I don't want to pay $200 for something with the build quality of a happy meal toy. If I'm going to get shitty build quality, at least it'll be MY shitty build quality.

Also I want a hobby that doesn't involve staring at a screen, I do too much of that.
