What are /g/'s thoughts on the HHKB?
Personally i love typing on it, but with the customs costs the price got very high, around 250 euros and I think it wasn't worth that much money.

Found these today:

I think they feel like really good slider over dome boards, but wouldn't pay over 100 bucks for one.
It's just a classic price fixing by xenophobic companies. 250 will buy pretty much any switch board short of a beamspring.

Then you don't want a Ferrari Daytona enough.

Think of it like this: I wanted the HHKB more than I wanted whatever else I could have gotten with those 220 bucks, so I got the HHKB.

There has been some decent stuff in the past, but it's a niche market so group buys end and things become sold out.

DSA and SA profile group buys often include some kind of international kit, but it's never cheap. It's best to monitor places like Massdrop and the various keyboard forums to not miss stuff like this.

About two weeks ago imsto closed a group buy for dye-subbed PBT that had separate (!) Swedish/Finnish and Norwegian/Danish sets, including stuff like the ISO enter. We're probably going to see more like this in the future, but it might take a few months.

Lastly, a lot of manufactures don't even do ISO, but support is growing. Already you can find pretty nice stuff in UK layout or blanks. A few manufacturers will probably start to offer better language kits this year.

Hi guys, just wondering what your opinions are on a keyboard for programming? I will be taking on a job this summer and will be working 40 hrs a week remotely. I will be typing intensively and I want to make sure I am comfortable while doing it.

I currently use a laptop keyboard which is okay, but begins to irritate my wrists after about 2 hours of use. I am not against laptops but portability is not a concern of mine now (since i work remotely)

Thanks for any advice

Trying to get use to this mechanical keyboard. Pretty tough hitting keys like ; without hitting ' or hitting other letter keys with my right finger next to the letter I one. I'd hit them simultaneously. Transitioning from a softer keyboard means my fingers are still too loose I imagine.

I've never used a mechanical keyboard so I'm not too sure. I'd be playing vidya games on it but I still want some tactile feedback and I don't mind a little noise but not too much. Correct if I'm wrong but I think browns would be good for this maybe?

Hey guys, I need some help

I recently bough a ducky shine 5 from mechkeyboards.com. I was super happy with it. But I now my fifth row, zxcvbnm, gets this weird error. When I press those keys with left shift, I get them plus Z, like CZ BZ MZ >Z most often, which is weird because it's exactly every other key on the row. Which keys are affected also seems to change depending on the lighting mode I have on. I have updated the firmware and reset it to factory settings, because I thought I might've fumbled with some macro setting.

Should I contact ducky, mechkeyboards, what do?

What kind of keyboard is that?

>>54285720
Probably a bit cheaper since you save shipping costs and import tax (though the former wasn't very high in my case and the latter non-existent). Send him to Akihabara and tell him to take a look at how much they cost there.

>> No.54288022

>>54287918
Shipping to the Czech republic should be 21 Euro (As would be shipping to any other part of Europe).

On that note, I'm quite fond of the PBT caps and I found someone who'd be glad to take it off my hands without the stock caps (at the price of 100 bucks mentioned in the post). If you're interested in the keyboard with just the stock caps you can drop me an email at [email protected] and I'll keep you on the list should the first candidate in line drop out.

Take the housing back off (press the tabs in so you don't break it more) and see if the spring and contact are still in the right place.

Chances are it's just not aligned right, unless you literally ripped the solder off.

look up reviews anywhere. apparently it's poorly built, the keys all have to be the same color (no per key lighting) and you cant use the lights unless you disable the windows key (??). also Kailh is the worst Cherry clone.

the only Rosewill boards people recommend are the ones that are filco clones (I.e. 9000). Rosewill doesn't make keyboards, they buy white labeled ones from Chinese OEM factories and rebrand them.

>> No.54294573

>>54294434

Of course there are better options. But for a TKL backlit board under $50, hardly anything.

Most of the complaints are about software. For a no-frills board without installing any crapware, it's decent.

The Zhuque and maybe that Redragon board are competition, but I haven't seen any actual owners of the Greetech version.
