Nah, it'll be a little while. Going to end up with 78g Zealios I think, but it'll be a while before the next group buy finishes.

You have the option for either, just need to specify on the order form.

What are some good 60% sized wrist rests?

>> No.54347952

I'm on the verge of buying a first mechanical keyboard now (probably a pok3r due to me needing ISO layout and I want a 60%), however I'm not sure what Cherry MX type to get. I'm mainly going to be programming with it, so after research I'm probably thinking blues or clears? To specify what I have gone through: A Logitech G15, and now I have a Apple Keyboard (don't hurt me please).

Well with the pcb you could use something like kicad to design it yourself and then print it, or you could find a pcb drawn up for you already. You could find someone to print the pcb for you. It would be easier if you just salvaged the pcbs from old keyboards instead.

Pick a switch yourself, it's hard to say that one it objectively better. Here's a chart for Cherry switches - the most common switch brand.
If you can, try some display units to get a reference point and move around the chart to adjust for your tastes (stiffer? noise? tactility?).

Once you've done that, browse around and see what sizes and designs you like. You're likely to bump into the really big brands:
Razer - Very tacky gamer aesthetic, overpriced plastic feeling boards, uses knockoff switches that aren't nice to type on, hard to customize beyond lighting color.
Corsair - More solid but often overpriced, standard Cherry switches, looks decent, hard to customize beyond lighting color.
Cooler Master (CM Storm) - Very standard looking boards with standard Cherry switches, detachable cables and standard keycap sizes making them easily customizable.
Logitech - Uses their own switch type, very extreme aesthetic, absolutely no customization beyond lighting.

Beyond that there are a ton more brands like Filco (very professional), Ducky (nice backlits), Rosewill, KBParadise (online budget brands) etc.

There are of course other switch types but I'd avoid them for a first purchase.

Will do, thanks. If I actually go through with it, this will be the first time I've played with solder in years. Hopefully I don't fuck it up.

Also, nice, it looks like you were the only one who got the board as advertised. My one has the light grey keys like >>54346990. I don't really mind too much, because as far as I'm concerned, a major reason to get a board with a standard layout like the VA68M is to be able to swap-out the keycaps.

Maybe if I complain on assdrop they'll send a free set of keycaps in the proper colour though? I'm sure as hell not sending my board back.

Bought a Cherry G80-3850 with MX Blues the other day. I don't think I like the MX blue switches. I don't quite understand why people claim that the blues are better for typing, I honestly don't think the feedback helps at all. I'm a programmer and type all day and I still prefer black switches.

To me MX Blacks are like driving with a sports car on smooth German Autobahn asphalt while MX Blues feel all bumpy and loud like tumbling down a hill in a shitty Citroen.

Yeah, same. I love the fact that you can save your Macros and shit but also take them somewhere and still have them. It's saved in the keyboard itself.

Also seen it with blank caps, looked so sexy. and last but not least, I can't find ergonomic mechanical keyboards that aren't all too crazy. I tried the Truly Ergonomic Keyboard but didn't like it, at all.

On the note of blacks, how are they for typing on all day?

I've got thirtyfive gram linears in my keyboard and now I'm scared to use the gateron blacks I have for anything because of how heavy they feel.

>> No.54359753

Maybe I am weird but I really like on the blacks, they simply feel a lot smoother for me. Reds (or any other switches that need less force) are fine too but can feel a bit mushy after long periods of typing. But if I had to pick, I'd take any linear switches over any clicky ones when typing.

Also, I think I am faster on the blacks, because I don't have to go through the "bumps" of the clicky switches. I rarely bottom out.

By the way, does anyone know about the brand in pic related? Friend of mine bought one of those "Falcon z77" with MX blues (or pretty decent knock-offs as far as I could tell) for like $52.

Lexmark might've used slightly thinner casing, but aside from the black caps being pad printed they're pretty much the same. My Maxi Switch M13 is one of the best IBMs to type on outside of an F. It's definitely a bullshit idea.

On another note, got a few more school board space savers. One of them's hillariously borked.
Here's the carnage, bout to get a frame from Unicomp and boltmod em up.

>> No.54361266

there's no such thing as "gaming", "typing", or "programming" switches. Just pick whatever you like. I type 150 wpm easily with my laptop keyboard or my filco w/ brown switches even though they're not "typing" switches. I type the same with my novatouch (topre). I know a guy who types 180 wpm and uses only his laptop keyboard. A new switch won't make you type faster, trust me. Once you get used to it, it's all the same crap.

Just buy whatever you like. No such thing as "a best keyboard for this".

Its simple really, if you want the best there is, get buckling springs, if you want something other than full sized, get blues, if you want something quite, get browns, if you want memes, get red/blacks.

Quite as metallic as a Model M with membrane?
You done goofed if that's what you wanted.

>> No.54378749

No I meant the Model F reproductions don't sound quite as metallic as the original Model F's. That's what I'd look for if I was going to consider getting a model F, and since I can't find one that suits me I'll stick with what I have.

>> No.54378779


Right, so you got a model M that's an order of magnitude less metallic. And 4x the price.

Makes sense if you wanted a collector piece, but not that kind of feel.

>> No.54378837

I never said I bought the model m because I wanted something metallic, I said that's what I'd look for in a Model F if I was to consider one. I bought the model m industrial because of how rare and beautiful the thing is.

Got my blues in today. First time trying them. I'd have to say they've become my favourite at first touch.

I really like blues for typing and programming. Just have to not have whiny roommates

>Feels like typing into jello.
this is the exact feel I get on browns. Reds are great for typing, I don't understand the tactile appeal. Reminds me of a rubberdome

Just ordered a Vortex Pok3r, can't wait.

P.S. Fuck you and your 5-10 day delivery Corus-KB!

You can get the same colour scheme in the reproductions. So you just bought it because it's rare.

I don't like the upstroke on clicky switches, like I have to let up higher for it to reset.

could you not just turn them off`?

I'm fairly sure he removed them because he wants to exchange parts of the switches

Never thought I'd see the day when someone on 4chan drops 1500 buckaroos on a keyboard.

>> No.54379550

i have to replace a switch on mine.
and a while ago i managed to somehow snap the pcb in the top left corner but i managed to make it work by soldering wires onto tracks on the pcb and gluing the switch in place.

its so fucking ugly but id rather this than buy another orbweaver.
fucking love my orbweaver, but its so razery. id like to make a custom case for it too.

Who dropped 1500?

how do you guys manage to break pcbs so much

i came close to wrecking the pads on a filco number pad, but only because the taiwanese thought it was a great idea to hammer the switch stems over

>> No.54379609

yea really not sure how it happened. im slightly rough with it when im trying to be a leet gamer and press buttons really fast, but it shouldn't have been enough to break it.
pcb seems decent too so no idea why the fuck it just snapped.

the orbweaver PCB is incredibly hard to work with. not modification friendly at all

I'm not too knowledgeable on keyboards but I figured I'd try and with my current shitty one, the key limit is really getting on my nerves considering how much I'm either typing or gaming

>Preferred switch type
Linear, quiet
Either, ISO preferred
>Form factor
Most of the time I'll be typing in the dark so yes
>Previous current keyboard
Generic logitech and gaymen keyboard shit that broke or had too low key limits

Maybe a bit of a strange question, but has anyone here taken apart a Ducky Shine 3 and Ducky Shine 5? I'm wondering if the Shine 5 PCBs will fit in the Shine 3 case because I might want to fall for the RGB meme but prefer the Shine 3's design.

>> No.54380542

dont fall for it man please

Ducky Shine 5 has the prettiest lights and is built pretty well.
