>tactile pleasure
sounds like fun

I'd rather see some force graphs though. They spend multiple paragraphs talking about switch modding and only one on vaguely describing how the switches feel. No mention of what they're comparable to or anything of the sort.

I'm generally rather skeptical of mx-style tactiles, these sound like another iteration of feelios to me.
Is the OEM gateron again or is it someone else this time?

>>56715452
Most keycap sets that you'll find which actually accommodate for a layout this non-standard will probably already be high quality, so this isn't really something you have to worry about.

The other question is why you'd want to replace the stock keycaps. It's cherry profile, dyesubbed thick PBT. Why would you even want to go to the trouble of finding something else?

They put expensive PBT on top because it makes it feel better and use cheap ABS for the rest because they don't really care for true quality. It's a very common practice, and easily spotted if you look closely at your keycaps.

Gateron is your regular old cherry knockoff that's cheaper and smoother than the original.

MOD is some newfangled switch that even originative doesn't seem to know shit about, or at least they can't even be bothered to show a force curve or a diagram of the switches on their website. Apparently they use a copper leaf, similarly to how alps work in terms of tactility I presume.

I've got gateron clears in mine, which I'm enjoying a whole lot, though I worthy recommend them to everyone, they're 35g linears, so typos or double taps can occur quite easily depending on what you're doing. I really like the feeling of them though, it feels like I'm typing on pillars of air.

I heard good things about gateron browns, but I don't have any personal experience with them.

Personally, I enjoy most mx-style switches except for browns and blues, so if you were to ask me for a recommendation off the top of my head, I'd just tell you to get gateron blacks if you want something heavier, or reds if you want something lighter. If you want ultra-light you can also take the plunge with the clears, you can't really go wrong with linears imo.

Just don't complain to me if you end up disliking them.

It's novice shittalk and novice design by Gateron/Zealio. Cherry puts and INTENTIONAL texture on their switch stems, so that there is always a small amount of perceptible tactility at your fingertip as the switch moves down, otherwise your brain will not really know that you've pressed the switch 1mm further in the last 500ms. Gateron just copied the exterior dimensions of the MX stem and didn't have the experience to notice and comprehend this subtle design point.

I believe there is something to the texture extending the life of the switch as well - as it will actually reduce plastic surface to plastic surface contact. Perhaps you've read about "vintage" MX switches being smoother, the texture has probably worn down. Cherry has been a leader in in the market a very long time for a reason. Good design.

why is 65% layout so much more popular than 75%? does the space saved by removing a single row really outweigh the loss of the dedicated function keys and the option to have cable pathing on the underside (i'm not aware of any 60/65% boards with usb connection underneath)?

Not really. A mechanical keyboard would be recommend to someone who wants a mechanical keyboard. You don't need a mechanical keyboard in order to touch type properly. If you want to "reward" yourself with a nice keyboard for having learned to touch type, that's wonderful, but don't expect it to make you any better at it.

There is actually no real benefit of using a mechanical keyboard and this is from someone who got a $200 allowance from his boss to buy a dedicated keyboard. When I got the new Macbook Pro I actually experienced what a keyboard should be like. Sure, the heavy keys and ticking is great and motivational, but in the end a chiclet keyboard is so much better to type on.

And as a programmer (nodejs) I don't even type long chunks of text anyway so marginally reduced words per minute doesn't even bother me that much as it used to.

Mechanical keyboards is like a brand of Nike or Adidas or you name it. First, you will stick to it and conform to group thinking, but later you realize there are so many better shoes out there which don't fit in a "specific category". And I'm not an Apple fanboy at all,.

a mechanical keyboard would be recommended for typing in general. and getting a mech keyboard is a good excuse to start learning touch typing since it'll help you get used to the specific keyboard and it's the keyboard you'll (hopefully) be using for quite some time before having to get some other keyboard. especially if you're switching from e.g. european ISO to US ANSI it's good to get the keyboard first since it's an entirely different layout.

choc mini RGB is also an option (not sure if sellers have it with reds though), i have it with blues and it's great. planning on updating my review MAYBE tomorrow with new pics and info about the software.

lights come down to preference, some people hate them, but i love it, even if you don't look at it directly it gives your eyes something to work with for that eye-hand coordination goodness. and you can set just the right brightness level so it's not distractingly bright or too dark either. and you can set a certain color layout to highlight certain keys, make them easier to hit or just for aesthetics.

a major caveat i found is that you can't set a too complex lights pattern or else the keyboard input will freeze up for like a second sometimes. i believe the microcontroller overflows the stack due to a combination of having limited memory and the way the firmware was programmed, and when this happens it resets which takes like a second. so unfortunately you don't have unlimited color options and i think you might run into the same issue if you program a lot of macros too. the updated review will have a pic of a lights pattern which has the problem as well a pic of a pattern which works 100%.

Hmm, where to start.. For starters the size of the floss is the biggest problem, since it's so tiny you don't have the utility of regular floss when it comes to getting 'between' your teeth, which can result in causing harm to your teeth and/or gums since some teeth are close together then others. With regular floss u can position the wire so that it approaches from the top/middle going down and around, from big to small like a funnel (hope that made sense). The fact that you re-use the same tiny piece for every tooth can result in 'bad' germs spreading to other healthy parts of ur mouth, possibly infecting them aswell. With regular floss you have different segments of the wire that you use. Finally, the plastic toothpick can cause some serious damage, and even chip off parts of your tooth if used on weak areas (such as cavities, etc). And i've seen some people even reuse the same stick mulitple times (oh no..). Big story! tldr; germs + teeth/gum damage.

It appears they take the molding more serious now that thet have gotten shittons of complaints, i cant seem to find any imperfections on my model

I see a lot more rust on Model F's than I do on Model M's so they have their flaws too.

I don't think there was ever a serious problem with the molding on the white / beige models, it's only really an issue on the black ones, or so I've heard.

No, I got a beige one a few years back that had blemishes. Mostly near edges, but also one right on the top bezel that stood out.

neither of them have rust issues unless they've been submerged in water. they both have the same material of plates and springs, and you're completely ignoring the rivet design flaw.

I have the faintest one on mine, but its so unnoticable its irrelevant

Looks great desu, I hope they work on the keycap edges next. Mine have burrs and folded remnants on some, where my IBM built caps are pretty much flawless.

Model F most definitely has rust issues, most barrel plates will have a fair amount of surface rust. My F122 and F84 had their fair share of rust whereas my wide range of M's don't have any rust at all. The fact most of the model f's parts are metal means it's more prone to rusting. The only rust I see on M's is on the springs.

your 2 keyboards are a pretty weak sample size, the only reason any top plates rust is from the shape allowing liquids to pool up.

again, they use the same materials. the only difference is the model M using plastic barrel plates. some Fs even have all-plastic cases if you're that paranoid.

what material are the keycaps made from on the ibm model f/m and unicomp keyboards? ABS?

>> No.56735342

Hello
I'm new to this, and i'm Swedish
I need a not-too-flashy, well-functional mechanical keyboard, that is either programmable so that i may add Å Ä and Ö to the keyboard, or that it comes designed for a mainstream Swedish market.
Please be kind to me :>

IBM Model M/F caps are PBT, with a few UK-built spacebars made from ABS (you mightve noticed these yellowed ones).

I've read that Unicmomp uses some kind of mixture of the two, but they use dye-sub printing so there's definitely a good amount of PBT in there.

if you don't need it to be built into the keyboard itself (like if you use your keyboard with random computers) you can get åäö on any keyboard by using software like autohotkey

also i really recommend US ANSI (and i came from swedish ISO myself) since it has a better layout for programming and the left shift and enter keys are more accessible with less strain. and the selection of mechanical keyboards and keycaps with US ANSI is much greater (but ISO is still possible to get as well in some cases).
