I first got a Redragon Kumara, but I might as well have been using a membrane. The switches were advertised as being green equivalents but they sounded like blues, looked like browns, and felt like a keyboard that you could find in a 2005 middle school classroom. Right now I'm typing on a Magicforce 68 with the low end Outemu Blues, and I like the way that the switches feel more than the Redragon, but I'd still like something with a higher actuation force and better quality switches in general. Also, there's a shitton of key jamming on this Magicforce, which is a negative.

I'm guessing he means it's a meme because it's CM and hybrid Topre. But the reviews are solid, and the hybrid switch allows for plenty of caps that go great with the minimalist design of the NovaTouch. I have one shipping to me now because the deal was good. I can't say it's worth it yet because I don't have it yet, but I've done a lot of reading on reviews and the board holds its own against the competition (but may not be the greatest).

I'm looking for a good mechanical keyboard which might be suitable for both gaming and doing normal activity. People here some threads ago recommended me to go with red switches, then I started looking around, when I met this today: http://www.drako.it/drako_catalog/product_info.php?products_id=18426
Is it good according to you? is the price too high? Shipping is free and VAT is included, the only downsied of this keyboard being the LED, which I will hopefully disable. As an alternative, I thought about getting a Filco Majestouch 2 Red Switches, which should cost me about 160 euro including VAT and shipping fees, but the Filco doesn't have an italian layout available, which is quite a huge downside to me.

Unfortunately there aren't electronic box store around me where I can test keyboards. I would have chosen that road long ago. I want to get my first mechanical keyboard and people here told me that Red switches are the most responsive and the easiest ones to approach coming from rubber domes.

>>55933114
> do you really need the Italian keys?
Yes, because they have accent letters which are super comfy to recognize immediately when writing Italian.

> or do you really need red switches
you can get an italian filco with other switches
See above. I was oriented towards Brown, but people here told me that Brown aren't really useful.
What I want to know is if the mech keyboard I linked is good and if it's not worthy that price. If I really want Brown switches, I could always get a Cooler Master QuickFire XT for like 109 euro and italian layout.
What are your suggestions?

If your laptop keyboard is hurting you, why do want a mech that feels similar? You don't really 'transition' into a mechanical keyboard, it's just a tool you start using.

Yeah I asked about their comparison with rubber domes out of curiosity. Ok thank you. Are blue switches also good for playing games anyways? I normally play only fps.
This could be a good solution for me: http://www.keyboardco.com/cart.asp

Thank you anyways. I'm still torn between Cherry MX Blue and Red switches. I want an easy and unfatiguing keyboard, I really don't mind the sound, but at the same time I'd love a a fast keyboard with a good response. Filco Majestouch 2 Blue has the great advantage of being available with italian layout, whereas Majestouch 2 Red only has US layout. On the other hand Red Switches are really light compared to Blue ones though, which should be a plus to me, since I'm not the kind of guy who would love to press any key to the bottom. This said, why do people say that blues cause less strain and are more comfortable for long typing sessions, even though blues are heavier than reds? I can't understand this point.

Because with blues people usually start releasing the switch after the bump/click, while on reds you usually bottom out, as there is no way to tell if you hit the activation point yet.

About gaming, yes, blues are fine. There is a little issue when double tapping tho, e.g. you hit aa to strafe on a game, blues will click on the first a, but not on the second if you dont release the key enough. They will still register just fine, so its just a matter of getting used with.

Btw, when people say reds are lighter than blues, its just about their actuation force. Bottom out force is almost the same between the two.

>> No.55937355

>>55937042
Oh I see, thank you for the explanation. As for the strafe issue you mentioned, I shouldn't have many problems, since I don't usually press the same strafe button more than once, I usually press a and d alternatively. Considering what you said, I must assume that blues are also more accurate than reds, since when blues are pressed you always feel when you activate them, am I right? At this point, blues might be the best options to me.

Because the keys are made with thick PBT (thinner in Unicomps vs originals). They still probably last 15-20 years in those, pretty sure originals would last through the apocalypse.

I have boards that sat in an open dump for 10+ years and worked 100% when I plugged them in. The rivets are another story, so go with model Fs if you want to buy used.

I found a keyboard I like. Epicgear Defiant - the good thing is it's fully modular, you can switch the switches themselves and have reds on your WASD while the rest is blue for example, then it has custom sticker covers so you can change the color of your keyboard and addon USB hub at the back.
