if you do it right it will last, however there's a better option than straight painting

use vinyl dye. You spray it on and it actually dyes the plastic and past the surface, so even if it gets a nick or scratch here or there the colour will still look fine.

>> No.55274526

Not too bad desu, it used to be an endurapro but the trackpoint got in the way when typing and really pissed me off so I pried it out. The ultra classics / endurapros are a bit more solid than the classics but still doesn't compare to an original IBM or Lexmark.

The feel of the switches is pretty much the same so if you want the nice case colours and similar feel to an original then go ahead and get one.

I got a Logitech G510 as a gift and I hate it. I don't need these stupid gamer keys or the shitty numpad or even the home/delete/whatever above the arrow keys. It all takes up so much space. I do 100% of my typing on 40% of the keyboard. It's so cramped, laptop keyboards are more comfortable. I'm not joking.

Not to mention, why the fuck would a keyboard need heaphones/microphone jacks? And the keys are made of such cheap plastic that they almost feel greasy. They are about as satisfying to push as your standard Walmart keyboard.

I want a keyboard with the width of a G510 but only 60-80% form factor. Maybe I need to fall for the two-piece ergo keyboard meme.

After two years, my Ducky Shine III is broken.

The bottom row doesn't work consistently. I'm guessing I may have either leaked liquod on it (can't remember when, because it just suddenly stopped working one day) or pressed the keys too hard, resulting in damaging the lines on the circuit board.

This was expensive, and was supposed to last me 10+ years.


>> No.55281181

Some people argue that blues make it much harder to quickly double tap a key compared to linear switches like reds and blacks because the activation point for blues is just under the sharp tactile bump.

I don't play games often so am nowhere near the skill level where that difference could possibly matter, so I can't personally say if it's more than conjecture.

You mean Topre switches?

I quite like clears, but you can't really compare Topre to cherry clears, or to just about any other mechanical switch. Topre is a rubberdome, and hence has the characteristics of a rubberdome, feels really nice, but certainly far different from traditional mechanical switches.

Here's the most of a comparison I can make:
Topre is tactile throughout the entire keypress, you'll see this if you look at the force curve. There's a buildup in force required right at the start, and then the dome collapses and you pretty much inevitably bottom out. It's a very comfortable feeling.

Cherry clears are linear, then there's a tactile bump, and after this the weight goes up really fast and you reach almost 100g at bottom-out. This lends itself to not bottoming out very much, they're amongst my favorite cherries, but I wouldn't recommend them for things such as FPS where you have to constantly keep keys pressed down.

In terms of feel I prefer Topre.

Triela > Henrietta > Riko > Angelica

The magicforce is very nice. I'll have to troubleshoot and fix mine since either the firmware or the hardware are fucking up terribly somewhere. If you want cherry clears in it, you can get a DIY set on aliexpress, almost snatched one myself, but I think I'll be getting the Tada68 after all.


>> No.55281962

get clears or greys
clears are like blues minus the annoying clicking, tactile greys are like greens minus the annoying clicking
they're the preferred switches of typists

try em first, I didn't like them. They're pretty much just better rubber domes, they get a lot of hype for some strange reason but it was pretty underwhelming.

It's a DIY kit, all you'd have to do is pop the clears into the plate, put the PCB on top, solder the switches and then screw everything together, would probably take less than an hour.

As to what problems I'm having:
The whole number row doesn't work
The super keys on the bottom row don't work

Test, today is the day that, I do have to get used to this retarded position of the delete key, but I have to say these switches are quite nice for light typing though I fee like my, that's better, left arm wasn't quite getting enough support. Oh yeah, cherry mx clears with o-rings. I actually have legends on my keyboard now, but I got so used to just fingering around until I find a key in the event that I don't that I don't even bother looking down. kind of a waste of all the fancy lights. would be nice if it were TKL, but at least the numpad replaces the trackpad that doesn't work really well on wangblows anyway.

I kind of doubt you will. The magicforce I've got is handwired, so either the TMK firmware or the hardware is fucking up. For the short time that I was using it with the stock switches and the PCB, it worked absolutely fine.

Good luck with your search, hope you find a keyboard you like.

Hi /mkg/ I posted in the wrong thread.


I already got some reponses, but I'd appreciate additional input

Guys, where do I find a job that includes just typing stuff. I just want to type stuff and get paid for it. I currently work as a software tester, and it's pretty fun, but my dream job would be to just type shit for hours.

Courts had typists
You can check if that's still an option.

Is it possible to fit a 5 mm LED inside the Gateron switch?
I want RGB LEDs, but I can't seem to find any that would be 3 mm.

Why do people shill Gateron? They can't possibly be better than Cherry MX, can they? The tada68 looks good, but I'm skeptical of the switches.

>> No.55284553

You can never be sure until you try it yourself.

>> No.55284839

Cherry is overpriced, gateron offers a very similar product at a far lower price, and they're a whole lot smoother than cherry switches.

If only they made them with black housing.
Look at the picrelated all-black beauty, it wouldn't look as good with white Gaterons.

I had a suggestion of the 68, for #2, but it is unlikely that I will make the buy.

i know it's just a shitty rubber done but can anything be done with it in terms of caps/mods? right now i am soldering a ps/2 male onto the end of it. it is a silitek from 1993

pcb flaps in the wind i have not seen this before

>> No.55287579

That's not a PCB, that's a membrane. And unless the stems are cherry mx compatible or something of the sort, you can't do a whole lot in terms of keycaps either.

Apart from the obvious things such as painting the stock caps and whatnot.

>> No.55287639

you're right, took me a sec to distinguish between the small pcb in pic and the membrane.
i exposed the underside of one of the keys, is that enough to determine compatibility with anything or do i need to take a photo of a removed key? taking a big shit atm

>> No.55287654

I can already tell you that it'll most likely not be compatible, but no, what you're looking for is a top view. Take off a keycap and check if you see a cross or plus sign like thing on the stem.

>> No.55287764

nah i already know it doesn't have that cross connector, you can see in my first pic a missing dome, what is exposed is the stem of the cap (hollow rectangle)
thanks anyway, just going to use it as a nostalgic piece until i organise a unique setup

found it at a thrift store in mint condition for $3, knew it was rubber but it looks great

Which are the best Gateron Switches?
I don't really have a preference, but I hear their linears are really good, so which one of them should I go for?

Also, is there any functional difference between full frosted white and clear top black bottom versions of Gateron? Picrelated.

>> No.55288595

In my opinion, clears.

They feel like you're typing on air.

The black-bottom-clear-top gaterons are just from the newer line of production, milky ones are older ones.

>> No.55288660

Thanks, I'll consider clears.

Ducky One vs Ducky Shine 5? I'm looking for a backlit mech, full-size, brown switches. RGB not necessary. There's also the Deck Hassium which looks kinds nice. Budget around $100–$150. I'm aware the DS5 is about $165.

I was playing around with damping the upstroke noise and airbrushed a couple gateron housings with black enamel. No noticeable difference in noise, but neither was there a difference in feeling. Worth a shot if you're dead set on black housings.
