I shudder at the thought of having to talk to DR8C0, but he knows of a place where you can get them custom made to say what you want and much higher quality than the chink shit you've got. I think his plan (which fell through) was to have the UID go to his Tumblr.

The first switch didn't work, which I tested extensively and opened. The second one doesn't register either, so I guess there's a defect on the PCB. What do you mean with tracks?

>> No.53937925

>>53937869
It sounds like you're approaching debugging all wrong. Do you have a multimeter? Check all the tracks on the PCB that connect the specific switch. If the issue is here then it's generally very easy to fix. If you somehow managed to short a track (how the fuck would you do this though?) then the pin on the chip is probably borked. If you find this to be the case then there are a few options but they're all a lot more work.

turn the meter to measure resistance, pretty much any range will do. place one pin on the pad where the switch should be and the other pin on the leg of the chip where that track should run to. if the resistance is zero then you're good to go (the track is okay), if the resistance shows 1 (or infinity, depends on your meter), then the track is broken. repeat on the other side. if you mess up what pad runs to what leg you will also see the meter show either infinity or a large value.
you can check your switch in the same manner, put the meter pins on the switch legs, measure resistance when the switch is not pressed and when it's pressed.

What keyboard would you recommend as someone's first mechanical?

I have to buy a keyboard and after some time seeing this threads and admiring how some of your mechanical keyboards look I'd like to get my first one.

As a programmer I think I'll enjoy the difference, but beyond being mechanical I don't need anything fancy. Just an intro keyboard.

What would you recommend for a starter?

>Budget
Ideally 70€ max. If that's too tight please suggest what's the cheapest 'decent' (as in something that I won't immediately regret buying) keyboard that you can come up with.
>Location (continent at least)
Europe, Spain
>Preferred switch type
No idea.
>Form factor
60 - 80%, no numpad
>Backlight
Yes if possible.

if your dad one he can probably teach you how.

anywho, break the cables apart and clean their ends so you can measure them nicely. switch to resistance and put on measure pin on a cable and then use the other measure pin on the usb pins to find which one is connected to it. if there's a connection, the resistance will be 0, otherwise infinite.

Keys randomly fail when I'm typing or stop registering after some time if I keep holding them. Some LEDs on it died out even though I don't even use them. I heard that was a massive problem with the first version of it and that they did a revision.

I really don't like coolermaster as a brand at all because this keyboard was actually what I got after I RMAed a CM storm stealth that presented every defect you could possibly imagine. It was actually discontinued because the whole thing was a POS.

I bought a MagicForce. This board usually comes with OUTEMU mechanical switches for $40. But when I found a version of this keyboard with Cherry MX Greens for only $89, buying it was an easy decision.

I wanted a 60% keyboard. I was considering the Pok3r with Cherry MX Blue switches for $129, but I eventually decided that I couldn't do without dedicated arrow keys. For the price, I was expecting the MagicForce to be lower quality than what I've received and I'm pleasantly surprised by this keyboard. I think that it's a hidden gem. Will definitely have to replace the keycaps, but I was likely going to do that regardless of what board I purchased.

Which is why you get custom keycaps after the fact. However, that's gonna be a bit of a pickle since the right side of the bottom row, as well as the shift are non-standard sizes.

If you go for blanks you have loads of options. Just go for a set with full 104 keys, then you'll have plenty of spare keycaps from the keypad, arrow keys, and such.

Most people don't realize that mechanical keyboards is a very niche business once you venture from the gamer market. If you ask for something it's sometimes not available right now.
Products appear and disappear in the blink of an eye. Good stuff becomes sold out, shops close and group buys end.
Thankfully the cycle will start over with a product similar to whatever was missed popping up within 2-3 months. All you have to do is discover good sources for news and products and monitor them.

Is the guy with his custom 60% AEKII around? I'd need some advice on the plate please. I'm a bit confused, when using the CAD generator all I get are those long, platemount stabi-cutouts for the spacebar. But I'd need them to be smaller like the ones of the AEK, or is there a place where I can buy those seperately (with ok shipping to EU)?

Not that guy, but having used cheap rubberdomes, MX Brown, MX Blue, and MX Red, Topre are my favorite.

Topre feels kind of like a hybrid between MX switches and Rubberdomes. Their design is nice because it will never develop key chatter, which can be a problem with MX switches.

I have both. I prefer my Shine, to be honest. Though, I do use MX Blacks on the Shine as opposed to MX Reds on my K70.

Both are brilliant keyboards, but the Shine excels at keycaps and the fact that is has a removable cable. The K70 has just the bare aluminium plate, as the Shine has a plastic frame on top. I'm torn between what makes the lighting look better, but I'm leaning towards the Ducky's.

The one area where the K70 (RGB version) wins over the Shine is full customisability of the backlight. The Shine only has a limited amount of presets, and these are changed using the FN + F5-F12 keys. K70 has Corsair's software and gives you endless amounts of colour customisation.

Sort of. You can change the colour of WASD and the arrow keys, but you don't have much control over them. They can either be red, green, white and blue (for each key, preset) or they can do a colour change animation. That's it, though.
