how come a loud psu or gpu is a bad thing, but you love a loud keyboard? I don't get it.

>> No.55610840

Those noises are unwanted. They are not a product of your actions, but an unexpected side effect of a product that you assumed would not make those sounds.

Loud keyboards make it all too clear that something that you did happened. Some people like aural feedback. It's like making a turn signal; it doesn't feel complete without a *thunk*.

Cherry ML switches are fucking horrible tho...

>> No.55612253

>historically always been shit

Early Cherry MX switches were a lot nicer than they are today, before cutting corners and complacency. The plastic they used initially was more slippery and and a smoother mold so they weren't the scratchy garbage they are today.

Doesn't really matter now that the patents are expired and better clones like gatreons exist, though.

KUL ES87 and GANSS GS87 can be found for around 90-100, check Aliexpress if they're out on Amazon and medhanicalkeyboards.com

Oh, and do yourself a favor and go for clears vs browns if you want quieter switches. Blues are find if you want the click.

Is the GANSS GS87 fucked up or something? Is there a reason it's only $60

I'm deciding between that and the Noppoo Lolita.
Both are cheap for MKBs and I think would be good for a first keyboard to test the waters.

no, it's usually 90 dollars and a great quality non-backlit board.

I didn't realize it was only 60 on amazon right now, that's not going to last long at all.

I don't really mind that, and if it's too bad for my roommate up at school I can always buy dampeners in the future.

There are also places that offer really shitty sets, but you probably don't want those.

Not sure what you're saying here. I bought a majestouch 2 because it was the only keyboard which met my criteria:
- Excellent build quality (I kill about one membrane keyboard per year).
- No backlit keys, multimedia buttons, or other silly gamer nonsense.
- Fullsize keyboard. No silly minimalist, pay-more-for-less TKL shit.
- Reasonable cost. I paid 140 CAD. It's since come down to 120. That's 90 USD, which actually places it at the inexpensive end of the spectrum.

I find it odd that "well made, regular person keyboard" is a niche market, but this was the only one I could find.

Even though it's not gaymer shit it's still an overpriced product with less than optimal functionality that only sells because of the aesthetic it gives. It has absolutely no place on a keyboard that's actually in use.

Hey guys,

I've been using Apple Extended Keyboards since I was a kid, 20+ years.They're fantastic. Really great clicky feeling keys, built like a tank, pretty easy to pop off the keycaps and clean the enclosure. Here's my issue:

I have an Apple Extended Keyboard (Rev 1) that has a sticky D (heh heh). This sucks for FPS, cuz all of a sudden I'm strafing right until I can un-stick it. I popped off all the caps in the vicinity, and cleaned a lot of dust and gunk out of there, and swabbed the D cap with alcohol everywhere I could. Still sticking. So I switched to my backup Apple Extended II that I picked up for a brief tenure at an office job.

Then I remembered that THIS keyboard has another charming feature, whereby random keys, and it can be any of them, will duplicate. Sso I'll gget sentences like tthis. It's not THAT often, so I'm pondering just living with it... what can I do? Is there a simple fix, or should I just eBay the lot and try again?

* buckling springs
* 55g electrocapacitive (topre clones)
* 35g gateron linear clears
* 65g lubed zealios tactile

browners need to try cherry mx clears, and when they realize those are too heavy get themselves some gateron tactile clears/zealios/spring swapped clears

trust me it will change your life

cherry mx reds are the best :)

I wish the alphas were more white. That gray is kind of offputting.

Reminder that it's summer and you shouldn't pay too much attention to those people.

I have an arbitrary dislike for Chinese goods. Not Chinese-manufactured goods, but Chinese-made, marketed, and sold goods.

Thinking of getting into mechanical keyboards with an 87-key Noppoo Lolita with knockoff Cherry Blues.

Does anyone have any experience with them?

Where from?

>> No.55645124


Emailed them but they haven't gotten back to me. Would probably have gone blank sometime down the line but I wanted to learn all of the functions first.

are gateron clears nice

>> No.55645174

are they ANY good keyboards under $70

>> No.55645218

do you like reds but find them too heavy or would prefer for them to be lighter?
gateron clears are for you

they are nice but too light for most peoples standard use
only "light" switch ive been able to use is 30g topre but its a JIS layout which is shit

>> No.55645249

I guess I dodged a bullet there. I was going to order one of them through a proxy since their international shipping is hilariously expensive, like $48 for standard, but decided to just buy one from widebasket on eBay.

How is $85 for a set of keys justifiable? Is this about as good as it gets for PBT or something?
