Thanks for the clarification.

Is there any way to restore ABS keys?

>> No.54726117

>>54726077
The shine comes from your oils corroding the plastic, making it smooth.

Your best guess would be to sand it down.

>> No.54726310

I have 2 MX Brown boards, one is pretty new (~1 year probably) and the other one is at least 10 years old.

the tactility on the old board is way weaker than on my new board. are there different versions of the brown switch or do the springs/plastic degrade over time?

>>54726077
Restore? Not really. Some learn to love the shiny look and feel.
Functionally wise there's not much that changes unless your legends are printed using a less durable technique.
The key to picking good keycaps is really to avoid the ones with really thin walls and looking for double-shot legends (which ABS is good at) or dye-subbed legends (good for PBT, but can only print darker). Then they'll function for a long time.

>>54726117
Sanding would probably just make it more smooth. ...unless you used rough sand paper, but then you're basically just scratching it (at best creating a "brushed" look).

So I dropped a soldering iron on the edge of my board by accident today and ruined a couple of keycaps. Hunting down replacements made me think of you guys after I haven't been here in over a year. Thought it might be nice to write a bit of perspective as somebody who kind of dropped out of the market, and has no desire to change up anything.

So, here's what I got.

TG3-BL82 75% modified with removable cord and full metal case. NKRO, gray tactiles with vintage black springs for most things (basically clears with a linear force curve) and regular grays for spacebar/caps/enter/etc., regular linear vintage blacks for modifiers like ctrl/alt/shift. LED's way toned down and swapped out for 80's style acid green ones.
Separate numpad with all regular gray tactiles except a blue for numlock.
2 dampeners on all keys. DSA profile (what you're stuck with if you want aftermarket caps on a 75%, minus maybe a couple SA sets).

This is what I use every day. Good tactile feel. Heavy enough for my liking with my heavy-handed typing. Throw not too long and not too short. And relatively quiet compared to clicking switches.

Caps are an ABS/PBT mix. The high use ABS keys are starting to shine after a year. The low use ABS and the high use PBT are not.

Switches I've tried.
Red/Black/Blue/Brown/My/Clear/Green/CapacativeBucklingRubber/RubberDome/Scissor Switches/BucklingSpring

Others I still own.
Unicomp Ultra Classic Model M
1984 Model M
BTC-5100 capacitive

I honestly love the Model M's but I prefer something quieter and that fits in my lap for typing every day. Not a big fan of rubber dome of any type but capacative was better than normal and scissor to me. Reds were way too light. Blacks are okay but I don't really like linear. MYs and browns were just gritty reds. Clears are great but I don't like the way the force ramps up at the bottom. Blues are too light. Greens are great but they are too loud.

So just one guy's perspective who found what he liked after trial and error.

I'm pretty sure it's from the plate and not the switches themselves. I've heard that any additional insulation might he plate's resonance though. When i put they board under a mousepad and some fabric the pinging was like 75% fixed. I'd just rather keep a clear desk.

Getting rid of resonance from your keyboard via dampening what the case sits on will certainly help, since the plate is resonates into the case.

I'm not so sure about how well it'd work when the insulation is under the PCB, but it'd certainly be worth a try.

They are marketing that keyboard completely wrong. A shitton of continuous / analog inputs is kinda useless in games, but it's incredibly useful in music. Pop an led on each key, and now it is an amazing sequencer + highly articulate instrument.

I don't have one, but IIRC they have like 2-3 key rollover so you can't press many keys at a time and that may be an issue in many games.

Other thing is the actuation is high so unless you think you can handle it and don't have a preference for lighter actuations you can suffer from fatigue from repeated presses.

I think it's worth a try if you're curious, they never drop in value so if you buy one you can probably sell it back for what you got it

it's a good idea but the software way they do it sucks. They are just emulating an xbox 360 controller with their keyboard because no games support it natively.

Also, whose bright idea was it to use fucking MicroUSB, or to only offer it in a TKL configuration? I like my numpads, dammit, and I don't want my cable to break if I look at it the wrong way.

It doesn't use cherry mx switches. It uses flaretech optical (non-contact) switches.

It's TKL because it's a gaymen keyboard. Most gaymers don't need the numpad and it's more ergonomic since you don't have to spread your arms as much.

I don't even care for the gaymen aspect of it very much, I just want one because of the switch technology that's inside. It sounds fucking awesome.

Is there a good keyboard with a couple of reprogrammable switches that isn't cherry and doesn't have 'gamer aesthetic' (rgb leds, weird colours etc). I'm trying to find something like this, but all the ones I could find were either cherry or had a ton of other stuff I didn't need.

Is there any factor in actual operation that makes them superior to a high end rubber dome? Is it pure hobbyist/aesthetic value?

It seems pretty pointless to shell out ~300USD for a glorified rubber dome when you can get mechanical switches of your preference for cheaper. (I don't even have a high res camera to take pictures if I buy a meem Topre board)

IMO the Topre switch design is one of the best - you don't have to bottom out keys to actuate like Rubberdome, but also doesn't suffer from hysterisis like Cherry switches.

This theoretically means that keys should have much better long-term consistency and durability compared to rubberdomes or cherry switches.

The feel of typing on Topre really is like a hybrid between rubberdome and mechanical, so if that is your thing then Topre is for you.

Personally after having used normal rubberdomes, cherry brown, cherry blue, cherry red, and unicomp buckling spring, Topre is my favorite overall.

>Analog Switches
Topre has been showcasing prototypes with analog input for over a year now. 256 levels of pressure.
Funny thing is that they probably didn't even need to modify their basic switches much to get it to work. Standard Topre switches work through capacitance and not physical contact, with the board sensing the change in resistance as the spring compresses.
In the normal models it's set up to register the key press at a certain threshold. So to do analog input you'd simply get rid of that and instead pass on the multiple levels of pressure.

Oh wait, this is some hip startup begging for money on Kickstarter. Of course it's gets more hype than some old company that is known to produce real and reliable products.

It's also funny how it's yet another bastard son of the Cherry design with yet another feature shoehorned in, when the Topre solution is so much more elegant.
