even if you have a completely standard layout you'd still have to buy two full sets for a "custom" two-tone layout

The shift keys outside the last row are probably there just to avoid changing the original layout, I'd use a thumb shift key all the time if I had it.

Mine doesn't have "gold" trim and stealth technology on the side.
There's an ignore-able amount of molding flash and there's a few screwy legends. (B has a small speck in the corner than can easily be mistaken for dust, U is scratched a tiny bit, worst is F4) My first set had really fucked up legends so look out for that. There was also this weird coating out of the box that came off with some dish soap. Comes with a key puller. Other than that, it's a great, thick PBT keyset with a nice texture.

Hi /mkg/, I posted on /sqt/ and was recommended I come here

I need as quiet of a keyboard as I can possibly get, I don't live alone and can't have the noise from my keystrokes (i can do 120wpm, i'm sure most of you are fast too) ringing out all night.

I don''t game or anything, and I have no special use case. i just need a standard full sized keyboard with num lock and everything on it, just need it to be as quiet as can be.
Also, would prefer if the keys are not so hard to press as I have mild RSI/carpal tunnel

please make a recommendation to me /g/, i recently bought a silicone keyboard and while it is totally silent, it has horrible ghosting and also sometimes duplicates keystroke inputs, or misses them altogether

probably go for a linear switch and add o-rings under the key caps

>> No.56321774

There are some commercial solutions out there:
Cherry MX Silent
Topre Type-S
Matias Quiet Click/Linear

Or you can pick almost any non clicky switch (stay away from blues and greens) and silence it some more yourself using stuff like o-rings, landing pads, silencing rings, clip-on dampeners...
Quietest keyboard I've experienced in person was a Topre with silencing rings - being only half mechanical probably helps with that.

the white one has thick PBT and the black one has POM

the spacebar is non-standard (5.5u) and you need a 1.75u right shift (which some keycap sets include or you can get it as an extra). the spacebar is basically impossible to get besides from the official noppoo white keycap sets or from shapeways (3d-printed). if you're handy you can modify the spacebar to make it fit but there will be one or two seams (which you could cover with a strip of electrical tape or vinyl wrap).

>The Atreus's mechanical switches enjoy great popularity among keyboard enthusiasts for their precise, crisp action. Most keyboards use a layer of cheap rubber to provide resistance under the keys, but each of the Matias switches in the Atreus has its own separate spring. The clicky ones emit a sound to let you know precisely when the switch has activated, but non-clicky ones offer feedback you can feel without the click noise.

what's the point of this? The only people who buy this are the diehard keyboard memesters, and they already know far better than the dumbed down, aimed-at-normalfags explanation of mechanical switches that this little blurb offers.
