>Preferred switch type
I'm not entirely sure, for me I like the tactile feel but mostly I want the keyboard to be silent so I'm leaning towards Cherry reds.
My BF says clears and I trust his judgement for now.
>Layout
Ansi / Qwerty
>Form factor
100%
>Backlight
Not important, think they'd be neat but I don't look at my keyboard.
>Previous/current keyboards
I've only gone through a few keyboards, two of them have lasted me for 10 years each, though I've had to swap some more used keys around
I got a g17 LED keyboard at one point but it only lasted me 6 months before the wiring broke in it. I'd like to do wireless as I don't want that problem again and I like to move around with it.

1st for meme layouts are for autist

>> No.54004834

just received a ducky zero w/ blues to replace my finally broken razer meme (also blues, last revision with genuine cherry switches)

The blues on the ducky are definitely more silent that the ones on the razer and have a pretty satisfying "tock", when bottoming out as opposed to a kind of rattle high pitched click on the razer.

So far I enjoy it

That said, the ducky zero literally has zero autist/meme/gamer features, I wonder why other companies haven't picked up that design and construction and made it a keyboard for normies.

>some ancient keyboard that was once connected to something like this
Nope and nope. The keyboards on IBM02X were mechanical in ways you would find hard to credit.
Pressing a key operated a bell-crank which pulled a bar that tripped an interposer off its shelf. The interposer had a comb down its back which engaged with some (depending on the key-code) bails which, in turn, operate contacts. The interposers were interlocked by a tray of discs with enough slack space to allow only one interposer to drop at a time.
The keyboard mechanism was mechanically restored by a pair of electromagnets between keystrokes.
The most common complaint from the almost exclusively female operators was a slow keyboard. The operators were paid by the number of cards they punched in a shift so speed was money.
They were amazing people; they could read and punch in complex data whilst holding multiple conversations with fellow punchers.

Guys, help me with choosing a keyboard.
I am choosing between Leopold FC750R and Ducky One. Is one of them better than the other in terms of quality? Is there anything I need to know about them that is not obvious? Or maybe there is a better choice?
Also, what switches should I pick? I have been using blues on my razer keyboard for about 4 years and I like them but I hear a lot of people saying that browns are a better choice, especially if you are playing games with that keyboard.

I'll learn how to design PCBs once I go into electrical engineering, but I currently don't have the time to learn how to design a PCB, design one and have it made. I already know how to hand-wire and it took the stuff two days to arrive at my doorstep, making the switch matrix took me four or so. I'd probably still be learning how to use PCB design software at this point.

I also bricked the PCB on this thing, hence I'm handwiring it. I'd feel stupid to use another PCB instead of using the chance to work my cable management. Not to mention that it's fun.

I did. I got some parts to work by hooking them up to other parts of the PCB, and so on. But other things still didn't work and more shit got fucked.

I concluded that it'd be easier to just handwire the thing than trying to somehow fix that mess I had made. I also found out that this thing doesn't have dip switches so I can't just set the control key to where capslock is. If I use a teensy I can make the layout like I want it and also mess around with the TMK firmware and FN layers. It was anyway about time that I'd learn about that.
