No.

The keycaps are laser-etched and the metal case is spray painted. And it's not fully programmable either. The pok3r is a fucking joke that disguises itself as a good deal.

The mechanism itself doesn't really make noise on linear/tactile switches, but without a rubber damper the plastic on plastic clack from bottoming out the key travel certainly will. O-rings or dampened switches alleviate that problem.

I've been using the same Dell membrane keyboard for about 11 years. I play FPS video games for fun. An incredulous buddy of mine is recommending I check out the Varmilo VB87M available on massdrop for about $125 US.

Is this a decent entry level buy? How the hell do I know if I will even like mechanical keyboards? I mean, I get that they are more precise than membranes, but is that right for me? I wish I could try some out.

>> No.56488600

>>56488540
You can get Korean customs with those features.

I don't really see how a keyboard that makes a seeking point out of pbt keycaps and a metal case is a good deal when you'll eventually want to upgrade both because the legends fade and the paint on the case has chipped.

A fruity backlit bluetooth TKL is a bit of a drastic change from of 104-key wired Dell.

Do you not have any computer shops nearby? They'll probably have some on display that you can try.

Thanks, yeah it seems like a pretty drastic change. My numpad and USB wire do not bother me in the least. I asked him if there is one available without the backlighting and he says there is, so at least there's that. Also this one I'm looking at is the Gateron clear variant, if that helps.

I'm going to try to find a mechanical keyboard to play around with at a local shop to see if I even like the feeling. I can afford just about any keyboard, I just don't want to make the wrong choice.

I get that its imitating the style of keyboards sold in japan, but n oone ever types with direct input of kana, i've asked, so why not just bind your right super key as conversion, and just get that special keykap?

Anyone here with a Motospeed Inflictor? I'm trying to find if it saves the last backlight setting used when turned off. The last chinese keyboard I had did not do this, everytime I turned the pc off it would reset to the default lighting profile, and I had to manually set it back everytime I turned it back on.

yes, but you have to effectively reverse-engineer how the controller handles signals from each key/matrix.

By free ftp server I actually meant a free hosting that allows to also bind a domain.

for example:

When hosting your own server you need to know things about server security (can be researched with "hardening debian" for example), handling ddos attacks (can be handled by cloudflare) and much more, so the easier way is to make someone else deal with all this for free.

Not anymore. The one I used blew all its motors (not my fault it was my boss). It would have cost lots of money to fix so I took it for free and we bought a much much fancier one. I managed to fix one of the motors somewhat, the other is dead and can't be fixed

The strongest selling points of the pok3r in comparison to other 60% keyboards is the metal case and the PBT keycaps. The problem is that they cheaped out on both of those in order to keep the price tag low. The paint on the case chips easily, and the legends on the keycaps will fade with use, also quite quickly. So you'll end up getting aftermarket keycaps anyway (or having ugly keycaps) and maybe replacing the case. You could just get a cheaper 60% instead and get some nice dyesubbed PBT keycaps right from the start. And maybe an aftermarket case if you're not satisfied with the stock one.

KBT switches are cherry clones they use the same stem. Did you even look at them?

It's doable. The PCB needs to support alps switches and you have to be careful during keycap removal since the tabs retaining the slider are more fragile on old complicated alps. Finding alps caps is kind of a bitch, too.
