I'll never get this meme. I mean sure, typing on these feels good, but it doesn't feel ~$100 good.

The durability is also out of the equation, since with the price you pay for a Mechanical keyboard, you can buy like 30 generic keyboards which will probably outlast you.

I just don't get it, why would someone waste this much money on a keyboard?

Unless they're extremely rich and need new ways of burning money. It's either that or they're slaves to the consumerism.

Why do you want ALPS? I picked up this with White Alps a few weeks ago for free, and it honestly just feels like worse Cherry MX Blues. Worse due to the fact that some keys, most notably Caps Lock and Tab, have difficulty with key-travel if you not hit directly on center. There's also the fact that the keyboard as a whole is a bit inconsistent feeling at times.

>> No.54087954

mechanical keyboards seem to have the same problem as mattresses: how the fuck do you know which kind you want before you buy?

is there some place you could go irl to get a feel for the different kinds of switches or whatever options mech keyboards have? and even then, would a brief typing test reveal how they would feel to you after a few days/weeks of daily use? or is this an exclusively richfag hobby for people that can afford to buy-to-try everything under the sun and waste hours and hours of effort and hundreds of dollarydoos on the endless permutations available till finding the perfect fit?

Yeah, pretty gud. Good soldering, nice PBT keycaps, standard layout and a decent case.

A little overpriced on the west tho, you can get a Varmilo for much cheaper that is made by the same OEM, and comes with the same keycaps.

>>54088264
Not that uncommon. Search "Chyron" on ebay and a bunch of results will come. I think every Chyron Max and Maxine comes with cherry clears, not sure if "vintage" cherry clears is a thing, but these feel very nice and smooth.

Got mine for something like 30 bucks.

The leopold? What model is it?

The older leopold moldels (like 200R and so) come with a non-standard spacebar, so fitting a custom keycap set will require some modding. If its a newer model, like the FC750R, it will already feature a standard layout.

Either way, 70 bucks for a leopold is worth it.

Dopre review

Ayyyyy you know who it is. ChucklingKumquat back at it again with the dress shoes. I'm actually wearing a suit and tie but this review is going to be far from formal because I'm fucked up. That's right boys. You may be thinking that this review will be good but you're wrong. This review is going to be as shitty as my sex life. So let's get into it. I know that I have coined the term Zealios are the way to your feelios but today this review is about an entirely new animal. An animal that many of you have not experienced before due to the price tag. But I am here to explain the goodness of Dopre. Dopre switches are just that, fuckin dope. From personal experience, Dopre is just the embodiment of dank memes. You know those memes that really speak to you on a different level. That's Dopre. The small tactile bump is just fucking incredible. Little finger titties. That's what they are. Kinda squishy but at the same time firm. Aka the best kind. Nobody likes saggy and boring. It's all about the kinda perky and firm goodness that we all know and love. That my friends is dopre. That is why you pay so much fucking money for a rubber dome but god damn it's the best rubber dome you will ever feel. Every keystroke is like caressing a cuttlefish. Sweet, tender and incredible. Touching the soul of the keybord. Don't believe me? There's a documentary out there on cuttlefish caressing eachother. I saw it in 7th grade. Never forget. You know Dopre may not be as good as the dankness of Zealios but it's pretty damn close. And you know I don't own just an HHKB Type-S I own a JustSystems Realforce which has Hipro caps. The Hipro makes all of the fucking difference. It's about as high as a kite and about as dank as a cave because caves are dark and musty just as the definition says. But that darkness is somehow a light. A light brighter than the illumination of the In N Out sign when you're drunk.

>>54089052
continued

The definition says dark but let's be honest here it's dark with an N. It's DANK. Topre is fucking dank. That's why I call it Dopre. It's dope for your fingers and you get hooked. An addiction that you can't shake off unless you're Taylor swift because all you do is shake it off. Dopre is everything you need. Dopre is the woman that you always knew but you never really knew that you needed. The girl that just kind of steals your heart. Slowly but methodically chipping away at your feels. Until you realize you love her back. Dopre. Dopre is everything you could want in a switch. Tactile finger titties that will steal your heart. Sorry ladies, I'm taken.

I hopped on the hype train from a friend long before I visited /g/ myself and I really, really enjoy the HHKB. I rearranged my computer desk layout so I might enjoy my Filco a bit more than I used to if I ever decide to go back to it, but I'd need a new set of keys because the ABS caps are ruined on my other board.

Either way, I enjoy my HHKB immensely, but it's definitely not for everyone.

Tactile bump isn't very strong for a so-called "tactile" switch.
Tactile bump isn't very long either, the switch is linear for the first 1mm, has a ~1mm tactile bump, then is linear for the rest of the travel.
In recent years Cherry's sliders have been inconsistent. Sometimes you get decently smooth ones, other times they're scratchy.
Gateron browns are objectively better.

Only major dealbreaker might be the nonstandard stem placement on the caps lock key. It matches neither the typical center-stem nor off-center-stem, so the only way to get alternative keycaps for it is to use a 1.5u key and have a gap to the right of it, or to cut apart a keycap and move the stem around.

Oh come on man.
Keys are slightly smaller than usual 1u keycaps
There are 2 versions of the switch, a taller, robuster one and a smaller one.
Only 20 million keystrokes
tactile bump is way before the actuation point, you basically need to bottom out (which should only be a problem if you actually touchtype)
switches feel "dry" and scratchy
tactility is worse than mx brown
Apple scissor switch rubberdome feels nicer, but have less travel and tire you sooner.

As someone who really loves slim keyboards ( The one Apple and a lot of modern laptops use ) How much will a mechanical keyboard with red switches differ?

I haven't really looked THAT much into mechanical keyboards but i'd reckon I need a new one in like... a year or so. I've got this old Logitech for 6 years or so. Still works allright but i'd like something new.

I'm not looking for a mechanical keyboard with huge shining leds, just fast and fluid buttons.
