>> No.54297314

Noise depends primarily on the choice of switches, secondly on the case (floating keys vs. closed case) and on whether you're using any dampening solutions.

Just get a keyboard with non-clicky switches and you should be fine.

I know its your typical cheap chinese gamer-core keyboard but It had a simple sleek look to it, and it matched my mouse colours for only £20, also first mechanical keyboard; black switches, felt weird, hard to push down at first and metaly feel at first but it actually feels really nice and satisfying now. with some more money I will try out some blue switches.

very tall, if I wasn't killing my wrists beforehand I'm surely killing them now. it also makes the board sound different, especially the spacebar which now has this sort of click that it hadn't before.

>Location (continent at least)
Sweden so I need the ÅÄÖ keys.
>Preferred switch type
I'm not really sure here but Cherry Blue might be nice. I type alot and I like to feel a distinct click. The sound however is harder cause I have never heard what they sound like IRL. Maybe green once?
Again I'm not sure but since I'm in Europe I think IOS is more common.
>Form factor
100% or 80% any thing less would probably mess to much with my head.
Yes, I would like RGB mostly because I don't care for the normal red, white, green and blue. I like yellow and pink and the like. And no keyboards I have found comes with this except RGB boards sadly.

That's about it. Any help would be greatly apprisiated. I have only ever used one mechanical keyboard before with red Kailh switches and I didn't like that there where no real click. And the board broke about a year after I got it. So consider me a noob.

They probably make a whole hell of a lot more selling custom keycaps to businesses. A lot less customer service mess too.

But you have to keep in mind that SP is like 10 machines total. They aren't exactly capable of heavy production. They also have a HUGE amount of orders recently, especially for SA.

has anyone tried using an arduino nano v3 in a custom keyboard? i see that most use what looks like a teensy, does that have to do with compatibility? i don't really want to spend $26 CAD on the teensy so if i could pick up a nano v3 for $4 or something similar that would be nice

What? That's pretty standard.

Mostly people use a Teensy 2.0 because that's what TMK is mainly built for. You can use anything that is on https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard/wiki/Compatible-Microcontrollers, really. The most common are the Teensy 2.0 and the cheap Pro Micro clones.

>> No.54315259

>Are they mechanical
Any keyboard is technically mechanical. But, its about as mechanical as a model m.
They're spring and slider over rubber dome and membrane.
I actually really like the way they feel. If you clean them out with some compressed air they feel almost brand new. (assuming your board wasn't treated like shit)
But for $4 you did good.

>> No.54315335

>> No.54315439

There isn't a whole lot that feel like them (from what all I've tested at least)
A model M or F would be about the closest thing you would be after.
Also, make sure you wipe down your membrane sheets with some isopropyl alcohol.

I just got a Ducky One with blues

It's my first mechanical keyboard

I quite enjoy it, it's a bit louder than I expected but you get used to it

>> No.54315899

Well, I said to wipe down the sheets in case dirt had gotten in them over time. It helps insure key presses are registered when they're clean.
My model M had some dirty sheets and wouldn't register some keys when I first got it. As soon as I cleaned the sheets, it was 100%.

For dying the caps just look up something like "iDye poly pbt dying". There are a lot of guides about doing it right. Also, the Fujitsu has some windowed caps on them. I'm not sure how to deal with those when you dye them. Putting them in the boiling water and dye might fuck them up.

>> No.54316163

I'll have to come up with something to do about the window bits.
How can I tell what plastic the caps are made out of? Or should I just try boiling one now.

I wonder if I should do it with the upper casing too.

>> No.54316232

You'll get used to it very quickly.

>> No.54316333

Put a little bit of acetone on the bottom of a cap (other than the space bar), if it damages it, its abs. Or drop them in water and see if they float. If they do, they're abs.
They should be pbt though IIRC.
Also, keep in mind that the space bar is pretty much guaranteed to be abs.
