Need advice /mkg/:

I need a keyboard for work, like this, but with arrow keys (yeah I don't know VIM keys yet fucking kill me), which I guess means that I'm looking for a 65% keyboard?

Any suggestions? I want something with CherryMX switches and NO lighting.

>> No.55379332

there's the magicforce keyboard on massdrop right now

>> No.55379333

any good tutos/beginner tips as to how to achieve this ?
I've been thinking about making one for myself for some time, mostly because the layout I covet (bepo) doesn't exist in the mechanical world

the gons pcb i used for that one is totally programmable
you can use whatever layout you want

>> No.55379420

The issue is that the bepo layout has a straight keys alignment, that's about half of its benefits as I see it
Does this kind of PCB exists whit straight columns ?

i think blanks on model m's look like shit but not doing what you want because of the opinion of some random anon's is far worse

I don't like it on regular M's but the industrials case match the darker caps so I love the look of it.
Love your space bar btw, how is it angled? I don't use many boards other than buckling springs.

the problem with the FC660 is the non standard spacebar and right shift
but if you're not going to change the caps thats fine

switches are subjective
anything but browns

/mkg/'s thoughts on the easterntimes tech I-500 tkl mechanical keyboard? I got one right now and I freaking love the feel of it.

Never heard of that, but at least it doesn't have some terrible name like every other chinkboard does. Post a picture.

They feel like reds with dirt in them.

>> No.55383133

They are marketed as tactile switches though the tactility is barely noticable. I much prefer them over reds, but I also much prefer clears over browns.

Which keyboard should I get? I've decided between the Rosewill RK-9000V2 BR and the CM Storm Quickfire XT. The CM Storm is 20 dollars more and I can't see a reason to get it.

>> No.55383363

Cooler master comes with cherry switches and probably has a bit better build quality, though I've seen people say good things about the rosewill too.

>> No.55383387

The rosewill one has cherry switches too and the build quality on the rosewill is said to be sturdy.

it was made by a company that cares more about gaymer style than quality

>> No.55385657

There's probably a crossed connection somewhere on the pcb if I had to take a guess. That sometimes happened on my hand-wired boards. Maybe a piece of solder got dislodged or melted.
