You don't have to. It just gives you no feedback when registers the keypress. It's a matter of taste.

It gets a bad rep after being heavily marketed as a gamer switch for no real reason. No really, it was just invented decades after its siblings and they needed a way to market it.
How do you market slightly expensive computer parts, accessories and peripherals to somewhat ordinary consumers? Gamers will gobble that shit up if you make it cool enough.

Get whatever switch you want to. No one switch is universally better.

Well he's at the far end of the spectrum, he googles pictures of everything that's caught his attention everyday, if he hears an ad on the radio where they repeat a product's name a few times, he's going to be googling it that night. He has difficulty communicating without getting too emotional, he can't easily form correct sentences unless he plans what he's going to say like 3-4 minutes before actually saying it. He also likes throwing eggs at the floor too much, if he opens the fridge and finds eggs in it, he will ruin the floor/carpet. One thing that amazes me though is that his memory is unmatched, he can easily memorise whole songs, he can also assemble any furniture from places like IKEA in under 10 minutes. If you do have autism, it's probably not even close to his.

Some people would probably disagree with me, but I honestly like linear switches for typing.

After a while the click and bump becomes a novelty, and I think it was started in the first place to "learn" to not bottom your keys out. Well you should "know" how to type if you do a lot of typing, and it'll let you type a little faster and easier.

The board is equivalent in quality to most other mainstream Cherry boards (Filco etc). The price is excellent so I guess go for it.

Cherry MX stems have a small amount of play, you can't get around that. The QFR-i is using Cherry stabilizers but the implementation is good and they don't feel mushy. Pressing the spacebar at the edge feels almost the same as pressing it in the center.

Personally I don't have a problem with gaymen brands, even if their stuff is a little more expensive than it should be.
That is IF their stuff doesn't have some major flaws, like the shitty bottomrow in Corsair/Razer boards. If those boards were at least dirt cheap, but they are pretty much the most expensive retail boards.
There is not a single reason to get the K70 over some CM or even a vintage board. Quality isn't better in any way, it only looks a little more flamboyant and offers RGB-backlight.
If you are willing to live with the flaws and pay extra for nothing but some LEDs and floating keys, you are nothing but a complete idiot.

Best buys and walmarts would be a good proxy. I've seen mechanicals from Razor and Corsair in both stores, and you can pretty much infer browns, reds, and blues from those samples. Razor calls them green and orange but you get the idea of a blue and brown MX, basically the same.

Browns are pretty inoffensive. Good gateway switch. You won't be wowed by typing on the brown, but try and go back to a rubber dome or a scissor switch-- you won't be able to, they'll feel so bad in comparison.

Rapid-i has a design flaw, where leds die really fast. Its actually a manufacturer issue, pretty much every board they made with white or blue leds suffer from the same issue.

Also, their rubber coating case is fucking disgusting. Impossible to clear and atracts a lot of dust.

The regular quickfire (the non backlit version or the stealth version) is way better. It has better soldering, much better quality control, and this ones (not the rapid-i) are from costar, the same manufacturer as filcos.

GUYS I need some advice, I posted here once and I've made more research since then

Basically I want ISO and that's a pain in the ass, but I still really don't want to switch to ANSI because of my special snowflake language and characters
So basically my plan was to order custom keycaps from maxkeyboards, then get a base set from pimpkeyboard and only use the letters because I like the font

I have two questions:
- Are maxkeyboards keys any good?
- Would mixing keycaps from different sources like that be an issue?

Their PBT is ok, althou not as nice as thick PBT. Their ABS thou is not that different from wasd.

Depends on the profile. max and wasd both use OEM profile, so you should be ok. Mixing OEM profile with cherry, dsa, sa or anything else would suck.

You can do an ISO-ANSI mix you know?
If it comes down to these three I'd get the Code over the Das and Razer comes last.
Razer has that retarded bottom-row. It makes a keyboard that could in theory be a lifetime companion a throw away product
Das are assholes, reduced quality with every newer keyboard, while maintaining the price
Code is pretty good. I'd get that if possible, or a WASD. Just not with clears, since they are reported to ping when using clears and I'm freaking allergic to pinging.

Why do you want backlighting? Like, is it an aesthetic choice? Not trying to be a dick here but I'm assuming nobody in this thread looks at the keyboard while they're typing. We all know about the little bumps on the f and j keys. The only scenario I can come up with in which you actually need to look at the keys is while you're learning to touch type or learning a new layout, and I don't really see why you need to do this in the dark. And if the reason is aesthetic, what's going on here? Why should random stuff that has no reason to glow be glowing anyway? Like, do you use the keyboard as ambient lighting? Are lady friends impressed by the lit-up keyboard? Are you using a dedicated macro keyboard? Please explain, I really don't understand this phenomenon.

I found two things bother me after long periods:

1. Heavy switches.
2. Hard bottoming out.

While there are light MX switches, they are all harsh if you bottom out. I don't bottom out that much, but if I am doing a full day of typing it starts to bother me after a while.

O-Rings help with this, in addition to making the keyboard quieter overall, but they reduce travel distance as well. I use MX-Reds + O-rings at work.

From my experience so far, my best typing experience overall is with Topre. Regular 45g Topre is very smooth and easy to type on, and because of the design you get full key travel without a hard bottom. I use Topre at home.

Look, I know where to find pimpmykeyboard.com dumbass. The link to the blank keycaps page was in my question, so I obviously know that the website exists.

Thanks again for your help anon.

The only thing that proves is that he was momentarily unobservant and didn't notice that you posted a link to a different page of pimpmykeyboard.com.

But that pic also proves that you're a condescending prick, but that isn't temporary trait, is it anon.

One of these I'll do a proper cable mod and get some fancy keycaps, but for now I'm satisfied with this.

Man, I really like my browns, no matter how much others disparage them. Typing on them feels awesome.

>> No.53999572

now try something else than browns.

>> No.53999580

I've tried blues, blacks and buckling springs. I prefer browns overall and they are extremely nice to type with.

Hi /mkg/ first time posting here, so I hope I don't fuck up, here goes:

Well I live in Africa. and the cheapest reputable one I've come across has been R1800, so $120 or so, I guess at the max I would be willing to go to $150.
As specified above, I live in Africa, South Africa to be exact, so I'm well aware that I won't have a variety to choose from, like a BSA does.
>Preferred switch type
Quite flexible on this, but i guess also depends on availability for stock here. I don't think I'd be too well-fitted for red switches, I don't want the keyboard exclusively for gaming, I'm a very junior software dev, so that response you get from typing helps me. Was thinking of perhaps brown or blues.
Probably ISO, seeing as that is all I have ever used
>Form factor
100% only please, I use numpad a lot for debugging
Not opposed to it, but like I said, it all depends on availability
>Previous/current keyboards
Only ever owned membrane ones, and they were all the generic Microsoft ones, so I am virginal when it comes to this. Was leaning towards Corsair Strafe RGB (as it comes with a wrist-pad, which I would like to have if at all possible), but would be keen to hear what people's opinions on other accessible boards would be.

>> No.54000164

Cant help you atm with the keyboard. But a wristrest could be made with towels, cardboard, wood etc. Basically the most used ones are diy cheap supply ones. A numpad can be bought besides a tkl or 60% or whatever. I own a goldtouch numpad as like it better to have the numpad a different angle/place than my keyboard.

>> No.54000293

Bought a used wasd code tkl for $100.
Should I have bought a ducky instead?

if it has the switches you want then good, you'll need new caps though. if it fits your taste then saving 50 bucks is a good call.

CM Storm Quickfire XT Cherry MX Brown. I like the keyboard just fine, but the usb connection on the back of the keyboard gets loose too often and fucks up what I'm doing. I'm not about to go in there and solder the thing. If I got the same keyboard I'd worry the same thing would happen. Is there something similar with a more secure connection?

>> No.54001194

So instead of fixing one small and simple problem you're just going to buy a new board? Top kek anon.

>> No.54001256

if you can't find blues locally your best bets are either uk amazon, german amazon/ebay or finnish resellers. igauniafag here.

>> No.54001280

Simple for you, maybe. I don't know shit about soldering or have the tools required.

>> No.54001321

find someone else to do it for you, then. your local electrical components shop can probably hook you up.

I'm lubing my whites while replacing the bottom housing with pcb housing and removing the plate. And see if I can use ISO shift + ANSI enter on it (kc60)

the poker is a solid pick, the stock caps are also good enough. i don't like their appearance, but that's 100% preference.

or you can be stubborn in your ignorance and buy a $100+ new keyboard
