>> No.55046191

It's just much less efficient.

>> No.55046201

I don't think so, the number row is much closer to the home row than the numberpad is.

>> No.55046208

No, its a perfect analogy. These both prove my point. They both do the same thing, but it's less efficient.

>> No.55046246

It really isn't... Stomping shit down a drain is messy and unheard of. Using the number row is perfectly acceptable, just as easy to do, and is actually much less effort to get to than going all the way over to the right of the keyboard to use the numberpad.
Getting rid of the arrow keys is ridiculous, I can understand that, but removing just the numberpad is acceptable in my opinion - especially when you take in to consideraton the size of the normal model m.

>> No.55046272

Ok, so 10 digits spread out horizontally forcing you to use both hands or peck across the entire row OR use one hand with ~3 fingers with the numpad.

>> No.55046313

How fucking small are your hands? I can use the top number row with 1 hand perfectly fine without moving my hand all over the place.

I'd rather do that then have to move my hands away from the actual keys just to use the numberpad.

Months ago I recovered an IBM Model M from the dumpster.

It was literally covered in water. I literally pulled out of water.

I washed it, and cleaned every keycap with hand soap.

I tried it and, it did not work.

The I left it a few months ¨to dry¨.

Some days ago I remembered about it and tried it again... And now it works.\

It is awesome.

It has the US layout, I am now considering learning the dvorak layout (i can easily switch caps :P)

I've had this keyboard for about a month now. White caps, silver plate, black otemu switch. Much more similar to a cherry red than black.

The switches have changed feel a bit over a month of 10+ hours use a day. They bottom out really hard but it might just be the way I type. I think they'll benefit from some o-rings but I've never owned any before.

The keycaps are also slowly becoming more shiny and I actually like this, they feel really nice under my fingers. That said - I'll be replacing them with taihao blue/white doubleshot pbt in a few weeks.

The aluminum plate attracts dirt like crazy. I don't work in labor and when I eat at my desk I move my keyboard pretty far away - yet it already needs to be cleaned. Especially around the "magicforce" branding.

Overall I love this thing and have been using it over my Noppo Choc Mini which was a $90+ board. At $35 this is fucking incredible. Cherry's patents expiring and the chinks realizing the margins on all these niche technologies is incredible for me.

If you're not sure if a mech keyboard is for you, pick one of these up. They're the same price as a decent membrane board. Bunch of different switch options, come in white/black/white backlit/black backlit.

this might be a dumb question, but is it hard to hit the HH/fn on the bottom row, or is it something you get used to?

The caps lock is not only off-center, it's off-off center, meaning you will have to do stem surgery to make any non-stock capslock key fit.
Other than that I enjoy this board too, but the flat keycaps weren't for me personally, once I swapped the alphas for some cherry pbt caps my typing experience improved by a lot.

Why do they even bother listing it. The nordic layout is a bit of a mess anyways. Makes me wonder why they can't add a small bag of extra keys so you could swap out the few keys that are different on nordic layouts. Many keyboard manufacturers already do for wasd, spacebar, and windows keys.

Seems like only Apple does proper norwegian, swedish, and danish layouts these days, and that's pretty sad.

Filco's swedish layouts are a lot nicer than the messy nordic ones other manufacturers use.

i have the same board (also with browns) and part of why it didn't feel as good to me at first were the stock keycaps, somehow the switches didn't feel very good with them. once i changed them it was way better, but maybe that was just my imagination (i dont really remember, at that time i wasnt really into mech boards). i enjoy the browns a lot, prefer them over clears, reds and gateron reds.

How is the k70 rgb? Finally going to purchase my first MK and this looks good. Tried a friends brown switches on his k70 and a friends red switches too. I really like the brown.

I like the lights and shit because i'm normie as fuck.

very much so, if you get the pbt ones you will never need to replace the keycaps either

I can't decide if I want to use my GON Cherry keyboard or my HHKB Topre keyboard. They both feel nice.

Artisans are fucking bullshit, they are for people who get keyboards as a fashion item for internet points.

I swear to god, some people actually pay $300 for a piece of plastic that looks horrible.

Awesome! but since I'm in the US i'll probably do it myself. The only problem would be finding the right color.

I am actually very content, the main reason for this is while I enjoy my one keyboard I don't look at it as my source of happiness. In fact the only thing I actually bought in the image was the keyboard. Everything else was scavenged or gifted.

Sauce on that coiled cable?

>> No.55093367

i've got the one with reds, it feels pretty good. a bit weird that the WASD keys have a slightly different profile on the keycaps, like they're meant for backlight, and that some of the buttons have a slightly different typeface, but whatever, i just wanted something that's nice to type on.
