I would like to buy model M in Poland and I am pretty clueless. Is it that much meme keyboard? Personally, I find the layout of the keyboard to be great and I used to work on various "clones" with such designs.

Questions:
- It is quite a challenge to find English-layout keyboard in Polish auctions / craigslist-like sites. Any fellow anons from Poland has some own experiences with obtaining it?
- What is the price I should not cross? I am looking for prices and they are very different. For instance on UK site there is 100 pounds, while on US amazon its 100 dollars.
- I guess the shipping is part I need to simply deal with it.

Some of the later Lexmarks had permanently attached cables but the internals were mostly the same.

So, I thought Ducky was supposed to be a reputable company that had some quality control since the keyboards are so expensive

I was very wrong.

I bought a Ducky Shine 3 as my first and only mechanical, worked pretty well until 1/4 of the keyboard's LEDs randomly turned on and would not shut off.

I'm guessing there's some shoddy soldering somewhere in there or something, huge annoyance and I can't bring myself to pay for it to be repaired.

Also yes I know I'm a huge faggot for buying a backlit keyboard, won't make that mistake again.

Sounds more like there's something shorting out things or like a firmware issue. Consider opening your keyboard and cleaning the PCB with some isopropyl alcohol.

Ducky makes good keyboards, but their strategy is actually to invest less in QC and to invest more in customer support instead. They're known for having absolutely amazing customer support in Taiwan, which is where they are located.

If you're outside of Taiwan, good luck I guess, hopefully they'll do something nice for you.

GMK is also another popular manufacturer with considerably better quality but also at a higher price ($80 is the cheapest i've ever seen and also happens to be available to get rn)
Gateron keycaps are probably the best keycaps for value because not only are they about as thick as GMK(actually might be thicker) they are made out of PBT which doesn't shine as fast as ABS

They have american layout though, which I'm not very familiar with.

The moment you decide that you want some aftermarket keycaps that aren't as shit as the stock keycaps that almost every keyboard comes with, you will curse yourself for using ISO.

there's no such thing as a "best" switch for gaymen or for typing. That's marketing bullshit that for some reason still keeps getting propagated by people who have no idea what they're talking about.

Browns feel like reds with dirt in them, they may seem tactile if you slowly press the key down, but as soon as you actually build up any speed and momentum when typing they'll just feel like linears with shit stuck in the middle.

I'd recommend getting a switch tester and checking what suits your tastes. There's plenty of chink keyboards that provide quite good value for the price, if you want a more reputable brand, look for cooler master or ducky. Cooler master makes good bang for the buck keyboards, ducky makes a bit more expensive and somewhat fancier keyboards.

Other than that there's also a ton of other good brands out there, one being the KUL that the other anon just posted. If you tell us your budget we can recommend you something that fits it.

Thank you. I don't have any limit on budget to be honest, what I'm looking for is mainly a keyboard that is durable and reliable over extended time of usage for both gaming and working. I'm looking for a keyboard with caps having low resistance to pressure. Since it's my first mech keyboard, I'm searching for something below 150€. I heard great things about Filco's keyboards, but I don't know if spending that much money for the first keyboard would be a wise investment (here they range from 130€ up to 200€). I checked some eu sites for the Kul ES 87 and so far I've found one dutch site where tbe Kul es 87 with red switches is worth 145€.

the kul is supposed to be a good value proposition
realistically if you buy a proper board such as a filco or KUL you should never have to replace it unless you get the mental illness most of us have and begin to buy a board like anything with topre or begin on custom boards

really you can't go wrong with any switch
the only bad one is browns theyre trash in all respects
if you haven't owned a mechanical keyboard before the most seamless transition would be most likely into mx reds or gateron blacks
mx blacks are most likely too heavy and gateron reds are most likely too light

My sister wants to buy me good keyboard for birthday and I don't want her to spend too much on it, but I don't want some shit tier keyboard either. Been looking into getting mechanical for some time now, I'm studying programming and play a lot, but I'd rather avoid gaymer gear

>Budget
Around $70 I'd say, $100 is absolute max, but generally the cheaper the better.
>Location
Poland, so finding good used one will be a lot harder.
>Preferred switch type
Tactile, rather quiet than clicky, I don't want to wake anyone in house. I liked MX Brown when I tested it at friends' place, but I didn't try other switches so I don't have any experience.
>Layout
ANSI, the main reason is longer left shift, but I heard this can be fixed in ISO
>Form factor
Would prefer 100% with numpad, but 80% is fine too.

Not sure if it will work. I can get pic related in my town (about 10-15RON or so) but I don't think it will work. I installed resistors on the data and clock line,like in this guide - http://ps-2.kev009.com/ohlandl/keyboard/modify_keyboard/Model_M_Modifications.html (4.7k 5%) but to no help.

If anyone worked inside one of these (PCB wise) and if this helps,the wires of my PS/2 cable I used are 5v for red and black for GND. There are two wires,yellow and white,that I can't find out which is clock and which is data.

BTW,I found out that my Model M is a Dutch version and it uses rubber domes (enclosed in some black thingy that covers whole keyboard without case) instead of buckling springs. Is it still worth saving?

Low power supply through the PS/2 port is probably the problem, yeah.
That said, both of these Ms are plugged directly into my own computer's and work computer's motherboard PS/2 plugs, and they work perfectly.
I mean, my computer at work can't have a top tier mobo, can it?

>>55795141
That shit works pretty good and could help with the power issue, but be warned, for some reason these white generic ones reset the keyboard every nth keystrokes.

I'd recommend getting the black Belkin ones, they don't exhibit this behavior.

I think it's a matter of the PS/2 port being an afterthought on most boards. My high-end X99 board doesn't work with the native port, but my older win95 machine does all day.

>>55795141
That looks like a passive adapter, which definitely won't work. Try to find some active adapter like the blue cube I linked, they're sold internationally under different OEMs.

Dutch versions are definitely worth saving, it just won't fetch as much as the BS variants.

Yeah,but my computer doesn't have a top tier board either. (in fact,it's a ASUS P5LD2 w/ P4 HT 3.2GHz) And I also tried on a older (socket 478,Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000) board and same effect.

About $125
>Location (continent at least)

>Preferred switch type
I'm leaning towards MX Brown, but I actually have no idea. It needs to be fairly quiet so my girlfriend doesn't get pissed at my new purchase.

I want full keyboard with funtion keys and numpad.

Yes. This is a must. Frequently use in the dark.

I was on the fence too and I bought both, sent the black one back. I prefer the printed keycaps, especially because the layout is a little unusual to learn. The print on the black is super hard to read, and ultimately, I just liked the white better. White is sharp, you'll like it.
