I don't like MX blues. I don't feel like I would not be a good person to ask. They are my least favorite switch of all so you would be getting a very once sided response. As that other guy said >>55828421 they are very different any ALPS switch is much more 'full' and 'clunky' than a MX switch except the complicated linears which are butter smooth. They feel more mechanical. Cherry style switches have a soft springy feeling with light mechanical feel.

BTC dome with slider boards are fairly common and dirt cheap rubberdome+membrane keyboards that feel very similar to Topre if you can't get your hands on the real article to test it.

Main difference being that Topres feel more consistent and actuate before they actually bottom out.

Electrostatic capacitive switches are technically not mechanical but we give them a pass because they're p.gud.

Cherry is merely OK. Their quality slipped decades ago and honestly their modern reputation is largely a result of their being the only game in town when mech boards saw their recent resurgence.

Their patent on the switch is expired now, so anybody can make improved versions. Gatreon makes way smoother "cherry" switches and has pretty much taken the crown from them.

Also ALPS switches are almost always better than Cherry, though the only modern versions being manufactured are Matias switches. The oldschool lime green and blue complicated ALPS switches are incredible.

its entirely personal but i would suggest you to buy anything but browns
most people dont like reds
if you can tolerate noise/others around you will(more important) blues are great
blacks are #1 but maybe on the heavy side for most i think duckys come in a "nature white" which is a lighter black
that would probably be your best bet

I narrowed down my first mechanical keyboard buy to a Ducky ONE with brown switches (possibly TKL, dunno), and I just noticed that the only store that ships them to Mexico ran out of stock.
How often does mechanicalkeyboards.com re-stock?

WASD is my other option, but they are so expensive. Almost $50 more.

There's also this mexican store, but they mostly sell Razer crap and overly tacky RGB gamer keyboards.

Hi friendos,

So I purchased a chinese topre knock off on Aliexpress earlier this month and it came in the mail a few days ago.
<- Pic related.

Anyways I thought I'd offer my 2 cents about it and review it for you lads just in case you guys were interested in it.

It's a 35g Topre clone with RGB Backlighting called the Plum84. So I've had reds for 3 or 4 years now and since then I've wanted lighter reds. Along comes this keyboard and I had to buy it to see if I really wanted anything lighter than 40 grams. The short answer is yes, this is exactly what I've been looking for, as well as being a fairly legit topre clone. It's not going to win any awards on build quality like Realforce does or the HHKB. There's definitely a cheapness to it when it comes to the case, keycaps and backplate, but when you forget about that the keyboard actually offers a solid typing experience. I've never owned a Topre board before this so I can't really comment on how close it is to a topre board, but there are definitely posts on leddit and other forums and massdrop comparing the two, as well as comparing this keyboard to that Coolermaster Topre board. Speaking about that coolermaster board, apparently this one feels much much more like a topre than the coolermaster variant. The chinese have really outdone themselves with copying topre cause this feels great. The only way I can describe the sound of this board is chalky raindrops and it definitely feels a little grainy similar to cherry reds.

The rgb lighting is great as well, several different modes to choose from. However when it comes to more intense lighting effects you can clearly see some form of "lag" when it comes to lighting up all the different keys. For instance there is a ripple mode where whenever you press a key it will change LEDs on other keys in a line. When you start typing fast it clearly lags behind and looks absolutely awful. It cost me 124 USD and took about two weeks to ship. Willing to answer any questions btw.

Oh okay. Just wondering as mine have smaller print.

As for the printing, yeah I've only had mine for three days and the printing is already fading on the frequently used keys. It should be completely gone by the end this week, after I've done some serious work with this keyboard.

A mech keyboard is 10x as expensive as a dome keyboard.

It is louder, with a harder keypress required.

>A mech keyboard is 10x as expensive as a dome keyboard
This is correct

>It is louder, with a harder keypress required
Not necessarily. They typically are, but you can get mech keyboards that have rubber-dome levels of quietness. And the force required also varies depending on the dome or the switch, there's light switches and there's heavy switches, same goes for rubber domes.

>So honestly I don't see the point of these meme keyboards except just as another fashion statement
They feel nice to use and offer a very high level of modularity, which is why many people choose them over rubber dome keyboards.

Though like >>55850448 said, nobody here cares for your opinion as to why you don't like mechanical keyboards or can't understand why someone would want to use them. Nobody's going to stop using their mech because of you and your not very informed opinion.

>>55850455
>>55850628
Reds are perfectly fine for typing. If you're having trouble typing properly with reds, then maybe you should learn to type properly. They're certainly quite unlikely to cause you strain on your fingers since they're on the lighter side of switches. If you like how they feel or not, that's a different matter, but they're perfectly fine for any kind of keyboard activity, be it typing or gaming.

I touch type without bottoming out. It's impossible to do it properly on reds regardless if it's cherry, kailh, gateron or some other chink cnockoff, since the switches will have varying actuation points, up to 2.5mm. The specs says +-0.5mm, well their specs are fucking bullshit. Unless if you spend hours manually popping open each switch to bend the leaf parts to manually calibrate the points. I have never had problems with cherry browns or blues, they've always actuated after the tactile bump. (kailh browns/blues are shit)

There is also tactile ans audible feedback on your keypress and actuation, a ton of layout options, choice for basically everything, space saving and ergonomics (for some keyboards)

Ok. I've always heard a lot of people say that Browns are the sweetest spot between reds and blues, but a couple of guys here told me that Browns are awful and that both Blue and Red are better. At this point I'm prone to think that it all comes down to subjectivity. I'm just looking for switches with very low resistance and very good response. A sweet tactilw feedback would be also nice, but I guess that this point is really subjective. This is going to be my first mech keyboard and I'm planning to invest quite a large amount of money on them because I want to keep my new keyboard for very long time.

Every word is a chord. You press all the keys at the same time and when you let go the entire word comes out. The keyboard "flows" from left to right in order to decode your chord. For example, if you want to type kat, you press three keys at the same time. (Left side) K (Thumbs) A (Right side) T.

To type "Scaffold", you press 6 keys at the same time. (Left side) SK (Thumbs) A (Right side) FLD.

It gets a bit more complicated then that, but those are the basics.

How long did it take for you to find out what switches you prefer? I've only used MX Brown, Blue and Clear. I like how the clears feels smooth and kinda mushy but they're a bit too heavy for me. I like the blues but they're a bit too noisy. Browns are what I lean the most towards right now but the actuation point feels weird after I've typed on my clear for a while.

I have no idea what to try next, I'm leaning towards Gateron Browns since I've heard people say they're smoother than the MX Browns.

45g Topre gave me a preference for lighter switches (35g linears are lovely). I still like the heavier clears, but I don't use them a whole lot since the keyboard I have them in is fucking huge.

I don't think I have any definite preference as to what I prefer. I like linears, I like light switches, I like tactile switches and I also like heavy switches. I think optimally I'd have a board in the 60% - TKL range for every switch that I like, which given my broad preference for switches, would probably lead to something around 10 keyboards.

At least I'm on the way there.

>>55865257
>see look the problem with those keyboards is that they look ugly as fuck
They don't. They look good. The corsair keyboard on the other hand looks like shit.

Apart from objective matters such as taste (your taste sucks), corsair is known for issues such as bad QC, failing LEDs and a horrible firmware. Not to mention that the corsair keyboard has a non-standard bottom row, hence you'll have a whole lot of trouble finding replacement keycaps for the shitty laser-etched abs keycaps that it comes with.

Devlin, an electric components manufacturer in the UK that still has some extremely thick keycap molds. They're thicker than SA profile with the K series (the thickest ones) being almost twice as thick as thick Cherry profile caps.

There's only a planck keyset and a sampler pack (with some jucky lasered legends we'll probably not see again) out so far, but there's going to be a group buy for a complete double-shot set soon. They might even be cheaper than GMK.

That is correct. Keyboards with a numpad and a volume control wheel can look just fine, but that doesn't stop corsair keyboard from looking gaymurrrrr shit.

Non-standard bottom row and chink knockoff switches (while selling it for the same price that it had when it was using cherry mx switches).

High end keyboards don't come with volume wheels, and most of them don't have RGB backlighting either. The Ducky Shine 5 is the closest that you'll get to what you're looking for.

Gateron clears are very nice, they're extremely light and smooth, and linear. Don't know how you feel about that given your preferences, but I enjoy them a whole lot.

As for 35g Topre: It doesn't feel as good as 45g or 55. People say that 55g feels snappier than 45g, and comparing them side by side, I didn't really notice that, but having tried them all side by side, 35g really does feel mushier than 45g.
