I ordered a barebones NT and stuck on some PBTs. Upstroke is definitely noticable but noise-wise overall, it's an improvement over the MX Browns I had before. Stabilized keys are a bit rattly, but they're less noisy than unlubed Costars.

Hi friends, I've been using vintage Apple mechs for a few years, but I want to get an MX compatible ~60% board. I'm used to the heavy tactile feel of alps switches and I want to get a cheap ass new board, so I don't know what to do. I'm looking at the MagicForce 68 with either Outemu blacks or browns, or the Royal Kludge with blues. I don't love blues, but it is a true 60%. Any recommendations? I know there's a few alps users here who might have some ideas.

Recently picked up an Adesso EasyTouch 635 open box and pretty beat up from Microcenter for $45. Everything works great, and I'm totally fine wit the fact that the keys are knock off Cherry's and not official Cherry Blue's. However, I HATE the keycaps. The font is atrocious and I can barely read some of the numbers.

Anyone have experience with Adesso's knock off switches and know whether I can use caps made for cherry switches on this? I'd like to order some normal looking keycaps, nothing super weird/fancy.

I actually like my browns because they're fairly quiet and quite light, but you may want something a bit heavier and/or more tactile (in which case, try to find clears).

Browns feel like reds with dirt in them. They're supposed to be tactile, but they barely are, and when you start typing with any kind of speed on them, they start feeling linear. Except for that tiny tactile bump, hence reds with dirt.

If you want something that's properly tactile and not noisy as shit, get clears.
Greens and blues are both clicky switches, they're the last thing you should be looking at if you want a quiet keyboard.

I did hook it up and program it with a teensy and it worked flawlessly for a good while but suddenly every time I boot my computer I would have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it to work.

Opened up my I-500 to see if I could change the switches, have little to no idea what I'm doing.
Looks like the PCB is held to the faceplate by these rivets. They appear on the faceplate and under the board, and they don't act as a screw.
Tried the paperclip method to open up a switch from up top, but it didn't work (most likely my fault). I'm gonna consult my friend who's used those 60% TKL super ghost phantom gamer korea (south) diy kits, he has the tools to open this shit up.
I have a theory that the Tomoko/Topop/EasternTimes I-500 can be a sub-40USD customizable TKL board. If you can replace the switches, this thing might have potential.

Preparing for it. I still have a lot of time until I get my switches so now I'm making various projects to use them in. Planning to make a super comfy ergo keyboard (I'm kinda stuck at the moment as I don't know how to connect thumb area to the rest of backplate), a flat fairly portable one (pic related) and maybe a small macro board / numpad since I have 3 Arduinos to use (and a lot of switches coming). I only hope that cutting and bending the sheets won't be too expensive. Could use one of the Arduinos to fix my Zalman though (and make it support NKRO).

As for the pic related, I wonder if I should add 1x2 keys in the corners or just leave it since that place is a little uncomfy to press anyway. I suppose it won't hurt to have more keys.

Yeah it's the Novatouch. I did the mod suggested in this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5mLerU1aX0

I just bought silicone and some leather hole punches. The reason I did this was because I really liked the sound of the HHKB Type S but couldn't justify the price and I like my arrow keys. I liked how clean the NT was and the price but the sound wasn't exactly right. I heard the landing pad mod reduced the tactile feedback of the switch but I enjoyed the sound after it. I ran across this guy in some random video suggesting to bypass the landing pads and do it yourself with the silicone. It's an extremely pleasant sound. And the rattle from the keys are gone.

This keyboard is good for keycaps as well as it's clean and the cherry hybrid switch allows for a ton of options. I'd go OEM profile though, and as another guy suggested, dyesub or double-shot.

But reviews on the realforce are legit. I don't think you could go wrong with that board either.

Pic related, switches, USB cable, Arduino, backplate and case. Am I forgetting something? The IDC cables are for connecting two halves of a keyboard (I don't know how long I want it to be so I'm just ordering a few of them), the goldpins for connecting everything to Arduino after soldering so I won't have to solder the pins in tight space.


Also, does it matter if my matrix uses more inputs than outputs or the other way? I suppose it would be best to minimise the number of outputs and use interrupts for inputs.

I sure do. I'm not an expert but I think I've read enough to say that know. When scanning a row (assuming rows correspond to outputs) instead of checking each input separately I want to enable interrupts for them. Shouldn't this be better than checking each column? I mean, if all of them are pressed it will turn out pretty much the same but otherwise there will be a negligible performance increase unless there is some overhead for interrupts.

Nah, haven't started coding yet. You could google them though. I don't remember exactly how to enable them (I've read about interrupts a long time ago, I remember these weren't complicated), but overall you just need to define a function that gets called when the condition (input high in this case) is met. In the function I'd refer to a key corresponding to the column number (constant and different for each interrupt function) and row (variable) and send its code. In the main loop I would only change the outputs' values (and update current row number) and appropriate functions would be called as required.

How many of you use your keyboards with a laptop? I'm currently using a 5 year old Macbook Pro and a shitty Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 and I'm debating if I should get a laptop or something like the Pixel C or a 2 in 1 the next time I upgrade.

If I'm going to use my mechanical keyboard anyways then I don't really see the need to get a laptop if I'm not going to use the laptop keyboard that often.

Floating is the term you're looking for.

Don't go floating because it's "easier to clean". You still have masses of shit remaining, it's lazy, and it's much easier to just not eat over your board.

If you're desperate for floating keys, find something with Gaterons or something on Taobao or aliexpress. Reviews sometimes pop up here, on >>>/g/csg/, geekhack/reddit/deskthority and online. As it happens, I've included one below.

I'll assume USD, ANSI, TKL, any linear switch:

CM Storm (Any variant)
MagicForce 68 (This one does actually have floating keys)
Maybe a Ducky Zero

I do this because my laptop has a retarded amerrican keyboard that doesn't have all the keys i'm used to, and i'm not gonna go out of my way to buy a replacement keyboard and replace it, not even sure if you can with this laptop, sometimes you can just turn off the keyboard driver, but other times you have to take the back of the laptop out and unplug the keyboard physically.

Or just carefully place your keyboard on top of your laptop to see if you can place it without pressing and keys.

So it's finally time for me to retire my trusty old Saitek Eclipse and it's time to get a mechanical keyboard.

I've decided on the CM Masterkeys Pro which I plan on ordering in a day or two, I just need to decide on the switches I want. I'm currently leaning toward the brown switches as I'm planning on using it for writing and some gaming. Still not completely decided yet.

So guys, Cherry MX reds or browns or whatever, what're your thoughts?

Nudge me in the right direction.

for 50 dollars you can get a whole set of double shot ABS key caps. My guess is that this is just a whole circle-jerk of autist who out bid each other on custom weirdly shaped key caps. Once someone decides to make their own caps and sell them for 20 bucks this whole market will crash.

To DIY fans out there: how do you hold your cable so that your micro-controller doesn't get its socket ripped off when somebody pulls the cable too strong? In already-made keyboards the cables usually have a thicker part so that they can't be pulled from the case but I can only find generic cables.

Oh wait, I could make a hole first, pull the cable through, and then solder the plug onto it so the first thing that would be torn apart would be the plug, leaving the controller's socket in place. Is there a better way to do it?

Okay then simply put the mods on geekhack are assholes and the whole community is nothing but a circle jerk of elitists who shit on anyone who doesn't have a $200 keyboard. People who are too good for that site are banned and have all their posts that contain helpful tips deleted. One of them starts deskthority which has the best mk wiki on the whole planet (geekhacks wiki is non-existent). Then another person starts the mk sub reddit with the whole point of avoiding the geekhack community and of course no one wants to hang out with assholes so they go over to reedit. This of course means that geekhack is no longer the best place for mechanical keyboard discussion and that pisses them off. Also most of the group buys on that site are just scams. Not to mention all the mods who ban and doxx people for making fun of them

Also on a side note I some one was selling a keyboard that I wanted on GH, however he was selling it for double the price that it was on ebay. So I asked him to match the ebay offer and he said no.
The reason was "I'm a long term member and I take good care of my keyboards that is why they are worth that much." The problem was that the ebay sellers keyboard was in much better condition than his and when I brought it up he said that I'm a new member and know nothing about keyboards. His whole elitist attitude caused me to call him a faggot and that got me banned. A couple of days later some one on deskthority sold me that keyboard for half of what the ebay listing was.

Cherry stabs have a brake that will make them feel mushier than an unstabilised switch. The only way to fix it is to clip the braking arms, which you can only do by desoldering every switch so that you can remove the plate from the board to access the underside of the stabiliser.

How come you don't really see any vintage Topres? Is it because of popularity or because of durability?

>They literally just swapped the ID plate for one that had NZXT written on it

WTF? Why would they even bother? Why didn't they just rebrand some Chinese crap and make bank?

Anyway, love my Shine 3, too. Apart from the shitty caps, they're great, especially for the money.

Reds are fine for gaming, but the keyboard itself isn't great. It's not bad though, just not great.
