>> No.55173215

Modifiers are faster than moving your hand further to hit more keys.

I don't know what keys you are talking about specifically, but if for example you wanted numbers you can get an external numpad and put it on the left or wherever is best for you.

If you want home key or whatever then FN+k is probably more efficient than leaving the typing area entirely to go and hit it. (FN+k is HHKB hotkey)

I've got some sort of gunk in a few of my cherry mx blue switches in my cm storm quickfire rapid. I don't know how it happened, it's been in a carrying case just sitting around since I got my pok3r. Has anyone got experience with cleaning the inside of switches? Basically when it actuates it has a lot of resistance or sticks a bit on a few keys. It was probably spilled pop or something that I didn't notice before storing it.

It's looking like I'll have to desolder said switches so that I can get at all the sides to take the switch apart and clean it. I already trying wiping at the switch with a paper towel covered in isopropyl alcohol and then pressing the switches a lot, but I don't think it's getting in there. I've already got the case apart and I ordered a frosty flake since it was apart anyway.

Anyone got experience with switch cleaning?

It's a quickfire TK.

It's quite meh in my opinion. The plastic case is flimsy and the metal plate is quite thin too, it has some flex if you put it on the stand-ups. And the bottom row is beyond retarded. I like the idea of the numpad/navigation keys block, but I think it would have made more sense to implement those via a momentary modifier rather than having to press num-lock every time you want to switch and then press it again to switch back.

Did I mention that the bottom row is retarded? It's really my main gripe with this thing, though I got it from a friend for 30 bucks, so I can't really complain. I don't really use it since it has browns, will probably replace them with gateron blacks and subject it to the same fate as the magicforce so I can make the layout a bit more sensible.

I'd recommend getting a not that expensive keyboard and doing just that actually. Most keyboards come with not-that-amazing stock caps (even the pok3r ones are laser etched) or have some other issue.

Get a keyboard of your choice with whatever switches you like and find some nice dyesubbed or doubleshot keycaps. You can also get an aftermarket case if you like, but from what I've seen most keyboards have quite decent cases already, so that's hardly something to worry about.

I'd suggest getting a leopold (either M or C) or a higher-end Topre such as a realforce or a HHKB if you want something that will not require any modifications at all while still being about as durable as it gets.

>>55174783
I'm not questioning that anon. I never suggested that we change the names of them or anything, I just pointed out that they are membrane keyboards, that's all.

>>55174779
Beats me, I don't think it would look very good unless you get it sandblasted evenly (or try to sand it down yourself, dunno how well that'd work out).

Painting it probably shouldn't be a huge problem, though the paint would still be prone to chipping again.

The only issue I have with it is the lack of function keys. I think I could get by with the 84 and just Alt+F9 be F11 and Alt+F10 be F12.

But on the 107 key has the programmable keys all over the place so its hard to really assign it.

I like the layout just looking at it, but I'd have to relearn it and I already have enough problems when I switch keyboards.

That's kind of inherent to floating keycaps style keyboards. The metal top case doubles as the switch plate, not really different from plastic-case keyboards in that aspect.

You can just use the numpad instead of arrow keys and pgup/down. It takes all of 10 seconds to rebind the ctrl/alt keys too, but I prefer the HHKB-esque layout.

The XT has the CTRL and caps lock in the right place, keeps the scroll lock and numlock segregated from the rest. I also really like the way the \ and / are positioned and the location of the Fn keys. It also seems very space efficient.

It just has some nagging things like the delete button being so far away, the aforementioned wonky numpad, and the lack of dedicated arrowkeys, and just how different it is.

I plan on getting it, modding it so '5' is a down arrow, binding ctrl+fn to F11 and F12, and seeing what else from there.

I'm not a huge fan of the design, but it seems like quite an decent deal (assuming that there's no hiccups down the assdrop line). Would certainly tick all the boxes on what you're looking for and allow for a fair bit of customization in the future.
I think it's funny how they use that generic LED controller that comes with every set of RGB LEDs from china (I have two of those laying around right here). A more elegant or at least more interesting implementation of the lighting would have been nice in my opinion, but overall that thing looks quite good.

Hey guys, novice at mechanicals here. I have a question.

I bought the rosewill rgb80. Id like to get new keycaps for it but I was wondering do I have to get specific keycaps for it since its backlit? Or should any work for it?

Also the casing is rubberized. Would I be able to paint rubberized plastic or should I make my own housing?

WASD sells doubleshot backlight compatible keycaps, though technically any set of keycaps would work, you just won't have illuminated legends.

I don't know about rubberized plastic, but I'd imagine that it wouldn't play too well with paint, though that again would depend on the paint you use.
