I bought Sky Dolch off of Originative awhile back along with some of their keycap holders.

>pic related is pretty similar to my setup aside from CMYK modifiers from GMK

I really like their keycap holders except for one thing - they don't fit DSA caps correctly. You can't shut the lid, and they hold two keys in the third row properly. I suspect that this is probably because they were only meant for GMK keys.

You should try lubing the stems. I just applied thick lube to the stems under the keycaps and pressed them down a few times. The upstroke noise feels a bit dampened, but is still there with the characteristic clack. Kind of like the click of cherry blue compared to cherry white, the lubed clack is far softer.

It also feels amazing. I can't describe it that well yet since I've been typing on it only since 10 minutes or so, but it feels smooth and really soft, but still with springiness and resistance in it.
Really fucking nice.

Yeah, not that thick PBT, except for the spacebar. though I snatched some pre-production samples from our meme overlord when he was selling them.

>> No.53968265

I just used a key puller to remove the caps. The single size keys are easy.

The larger keys take a bit more care. The RF is the same as the HHKB in that there are no stabilizers for the shift, enter, backspace, etc. The keycap just sits on that black plastic support. I actually just pulled with one end on my fingers and used the blunt end of the keycap puller to pry the other end.

The spacebar is tricky, that does have stabilizers. I did a similar thing with this where I pulled on one end with my finger and used the keycap puller to pry the other end off of the stabilizer. You also have to be careful with the spacebar because the actual slider has a spring that freely sits on top, so you don't want to lose that spring.

>> No.53968334

what kind of puller did you use?
the topre standard one of a wirepuller

>> No.53968445

see >>53968245

Use a wire keycap puller, or at least a plastic U-shaped one instead of the metal one that comes with the realforce keyboards. Wire puller is optimal, u-shaped one is a pain but at least it won't scratch your caps as long as it's plastic.

Wire keycap pullers are available for quite cheap, so I'd suggest just getting one of those.

It still can, it's just less likely.

Alright, so Anon was kind enough to help me out in the last thread with my Noppoo Choc Mini whose right shift didn't work. After already replacing the switch and it still not working, he advised me to test the PCB and tracks with a multimeter.

That's a very silly decision to make. I don't think you're looking for people to talk you out of it as much as you want people to give you any tiny reason TO buy it. IF you have 1000 to just blow then that's your call, but I would at least think it through and make sure it's gonna be a sound financial decision.

What does /mkg/ think of Logitech's Romer-G switches?

I just picked up a G810; needed a new KB stat and it was the most compact mechanical with brown-ish switches I could get, and I actually like it a lot. They make quite a bit of spring noise, but the feel is actually really nice, with an interesting friction-y feel that my old Browns didn't have.

The KB itself is pretty nice too, and I'm really happy to see a gaming company make a keyboard that actually looks appropriate on an adult's desk. (Once the rainbow bullshit is turned off, of course.) I really like how compact it is compared to other "gaming" full-size KBs as well, especially since a board without a num pad isn't an option for me.

You can hand wire it and use pro-micro controllers in each half. They can be linked together or run seperately.

Most of the people here who hate backlit keyboards are really just insecure about living with their parents well into their late 20s and believe that if they buy conservative keyboards it will compensate for their perceived lack of maturity.

Since backlit keyboards are usually associated with gaming and gaming is traditionally associated with children, they ridicule others for exhibiting behavior society typically considers immature because, having lived with their parents well into their late twenties, seeing others exhibit such behaviors reminds them of their own failure to move out of their parents house and become self sufficient in a timely manner.

Basically, they buy non-backlit keyboards to compensate for a deep seated sense of inadequacy the same way people buy fedoras believing it will make them appear sophisticated.

Two main reasons

>backlighting fails quickly

Backlighting LEDs fail quite often, and finding LEDs that match the ones on your board perfectly can be quite a pain in the ass.

It also requires knowing how to solder to replace them.

>good backlit keysets are hard to find

Most people here love aftermarket keysets. And good looking aftermarket keysets that support backlighting of the keys are quite rare. You never find them with neat color schemes like those of Signature Plastics keysets.

If it says milk you can reliably assume it's whites.

Don't try to explain to poor people that they're unwanted; I've tried on every board I've been to and they never listen.

Not as far as I know. Even if you go with UK ISO I'm sure at least one company makes PBT ISO caps.

It's the Quickfire Rapid-i. Standard TKL layout, Cherry MX Browns, Costar stabilizers and backlight (that I don't use). The shitty comfort curve at the top is already inside the trashbin.

Quality-wise (disregarding the meh keycaps) it's extremely sturdy. I'd even go as far as say that it feels better in quality compared to a Filco MJ2 TKL I tried at a friend's house.

Well i fallen for meme too bought chink board with outemu blacks in transparent housing. Well its way better than membrane and its quieter than i expected space on ms curve 3000 was way more noisy.

Cost of board around 63$ equivalent + shipping costs. Can be found in different shops in central europe region.

Board is named Natec genesis rx 75. Has fn key for binds on F keys. (sound regulation window key lock) its pretty basic without backlight. I need to test it more to give more educated opinon so far i like simple design and that its 100% board
