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.

>> No.54269139

Found these today:

amazon.com/EagleTec-KG011-Industrial-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B015MQH59A (otemu blues)

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.

That's a bad analogy

You can just be patient, save for a month or two and buy a good product that will last for a few years or even more, what's the problem?

The problem is justifying something that's overpriced just because you "want it enough"

Cant find shit about that keyboard and I know there are some people in here that know their stuff, worth buying or not?

>> No.54271667

how much do they ask for it?

>> No.54271769

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.

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)

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?


>Form factor
Well it's not really going to move from my desk so I don't mind too much. Although I don't really ever use the numpad so I guess 80%? (I think that's what it's called without a numpad)

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?

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.

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.

I don't see how I was offended or defensive, I was stating my views on the competing switches. You're right though, I did misread who you were responding to.

Help /g/ I don't know where to begin. There's so many brands and shit and everything is out of stock.

This is a first mechanical keyboard

Pretty much what the other anon recommended you. Ducky Shine 5 should be right up your alley.

Probably has a lot to do with crazy import fees and duties. Euro isn't very strong right now vs USD, either
