Am I correct to assume that the firmware of this thing works similarly to that of the pok3r?
From what I can tell I'd assume just that, in which case it shares the same issues that that the pok3r, namely limited programmability and a laser-etched keycaps.

I'd recommend you take a look at the ultimate hacking keyboard, but that one's not even out yet and uses kalih switches (unless you get it with clears or greens), which don't have any particular form of regard to them, other than the fact that they're chink knockoffs.

The ergodox may be of interest to you.

>>56697371
Because nobody who buys cheap ass membrane keyboards cares about the actuation force.

Reds aren't even that light, I'm typing on 35g linears right now and I feel like we could still go lighter.

Yes, they discussed different switch brands extensively in the recent newsletter.

I really like what these guys are doing and how open they're about everything. For all that I can tell, Kalih doesn't hold any particular regard in the keyboard community, but I trust these guys with that they're doing with their keyboard. I guess we'll see if Kalih is worth a second thought sometime in the near future.

On the note of which, you should subscribe to their newsletter. Lots of interesting stuff in there.

>>56697597
The HHKB is quite a niche keyboard, whether you'll like it or not is quite hard to say, especially if you have no previous experience with mechanical keyboards.

You can safely pass on the pok3r, all of the main selling points that it brings forward are flawed.

dell laptop :^(

My understanding is that for 60-65% keyboards, there are only a couple options. I don't want arrow keys so that eliminates the filco minila and leopold fc660x, leaving me (to my knowledge) only the hhkb and ducky mini, making my decision topre or cherry mx. The ducky uses ABS keycaps so I would have to replace those with PBT. However, it looks more solidly built with the aluminum case. How can I decide without getting to test them?

actually kailh isn't as bad as it did tho, i also get a loaner of a razer blackwidow (yes,yes i know) with razer green swich (which is a OEM from kailh, i heard) and it's surprisingly quite consistent and rigid enough. And it's a little more clickier than mx blue. Quite fun to use.

Hey guys, this just arrived in the mail today and I'm loving it so far, the only wonky thing is the enter key design.

http://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=114&cp_id=11401&cs_id=1140102&p_id=13787&seq=1&format=2

I bought it specifically for NKRO, but I'm still waiting on a PS/2 converter.

Can you guys recommend me some good keycaps to replace these default ones? All the corners are edged and it's making it harder for me to find the home key bumps.

Preferably under $20

Honestly would get a %60 Leopold Topre instead. More useful layout without wasted space for a logo like the HHKB. Also the snappy sounds the HHKB makes that some people praise aren't even useful because they're on the key upstroke and have nothing to do with actuation.

materials are cheap for aluminum and brass, and if my speeds and feeds were good i could get good life out of them. idk, just a thought.

Then you've never used them above 100MHz. Which is honestly pretty common, it's not like your keyboard is going to put out many GBs of data per second over its usb port anyway.

High frequency wiring requires a very consistent, very precise impedance between transmission lines and ground. This is called the characteristic impedance and is usually set to 30/50/75 Ohms in comms systems.

If you change the impedance along a cable, or introduce a discontinuity which makes the signals degrage, or bounce back along the cable instead of travelling forward. THe result is your data gets garbled, not a problem at low speeds but when the individual pulses get smaller and smaller (higher frequency) the errors add up until your cable is basically an insulator.

USB in particular (above version 2.0) requires characteristic impedance on d+ and d- across all jacks and connectors, or it will revert to usb 1.1 speeds after detecting the cable is faulty.

I doubt his native language is Japanese. He didn't reply with anything that made sense when asked in Japanese, nor dues the third Kanji (or probably Hanzi rather) near any resemblance to anything that I've seen before.

I'm guessing he's from some county that uses Chinese symbols that isn't Japan. So that leaves a fair bit open as to what his language could be.

I think his shift key is fucked and he wants to repair it using components from another key. Needless to say, this won't work if it's the membrane that's fucked.

Now someone try explaining that to him.

So, after about 12 hours of troubleshooting by myself and with the help of both steelseries and microsoft currysupport, I've isolated the problem.

It was an ever so slightly botched install of Geforce Experience that gave a tell because the key would stop working right when geforce experience pinged its update server on startup.

Who woulda thunk.

If you're looking to buy, just get one that has dampened switches.

If you already have a tactile board then apply o-rings to soften the clack when bottoming out.

If you have a board and it's fully clicky it depends. Alps clicky switches can be made non-clicky by removing the click leaf from each switch. With clicky MX switches and buckling springs there's basically nothing you can do.
