I think that topre is technically mechanical, and generally with a higher overall quality- if only for the fact that the topre market is so new and exclusive. If there were as many topre knockoffs as there are cherry mx knockoffs, it would probably be a different story.

They're not considered mechanical because there's no actuation mechanism. Rubberdome over membrane is directly actuated by force and Topre is capacitively sensed.

Topres are capacitive rubber domes, not mechanical. Which isn't even a bad thing.

here's a newbie question: if we are talking cherry switches then what's the point of buying more expensive keyboards if all of them use the same switches anyway?

so far the only mechanical keyboard i've had a chance to use was cm storm quickfire which is supposedly one of the cheaper ones and yet the quality is pretty much excellent

is there anything that would justify paying twice or even thrice as much for some different keyboard if the most important thing is the same?

The price of a keyboard can be higher because of:
* Markup because of a certain brand or look (see Razer, Corsair etc.)
* Higher build quality thanks to better construction, materials and components
* Low batch sizes - stuff gets cheaper if it can be made in bulk (see most niche or custom boards)
* Low availability (usually older or imported products)
* Extra features you may or may not need (lighting, programmability, knobs, wheels, USB passthrough...)

CM Storm is probably the most sane of the gamer keyboard makers. Low markup, high batch size and availability. Fairly standard plastic build with just a few gaming oriented features thrown in there. Good boards to start with.

Here's what QWERTZ looks like. The bottom row looks like this.
Nordic layout is even more confusing. And french has a different bottom row, but same enter.

Ducky has a warranty too with a wider selection of keyboards and better build quality. The nice thing too is that they both cost around the same. You could buy corsair for their brand and aesthetic, there is nothing wrong with that, but when there are better options for a similar price I thing I'll go for those. Besides the PBT keycaps that ducky uses really are much nicer then and ABS I've used

I don't know why mechanical keyboards come with nordic layouts. Why not just include the different norwegian, danish, and swedish caps in a bag? Like they do with extra gaming WASD and super keys.

Filco has a proper swedish one at least, so I just use that.

Do you think that there's no addons or complete sets for the ISO layout?

The bottom row is the same regardless of whether it's ISO or ANSI.

See >>56743741 for an example thereof. The bottom row layout varies a lot with membrane keyboards, but any reputable manufacturer of mechanical keyboards will stick to the standard bottom row layout.

Looks good if you want a full-size but still want to have it be at least somewhat compact. Though your bottom row modifier placement estranges me a bit, and what's with that return key and the long left shift? It looks like you're going for JIS, but with an ANSI/ISO style bottom row.

I'm going for Russian layout, the most popular one is based on ISO, but usually has both. Note how the key next to left Shift is just useless and doubles everything on the key next to Enter.

Wise layout choice, friend. I'd recommend switching to a standard bottom row but with the ansi left shift and iso enter, you'll have trouble finding a set of keycaps anyway.

Infact, I'd recommend just sticking with a standard layout if you don't already have the keycaps.

As far as getting a plate goes, you can get a custom plate laser cut and then you can get a case lasered out from acrylic or steel if you are truly a madlad. For a one-off keyboard, it's probably not worth designing a PCB but it's certainly an option.

I chose wood and my board is handwired with the switches, keycaps, and plate recycled from an old broken mechanical.

Attention:

This item is a scam, do not recommend it!

I bought it because they advertise no key rollover, but the keyboard is locked at 2 key rollover. The switches are real reds, but lying about NKRO should be a deal breaker.

They also lie about the cable, it's not braided.

I got a refund (they want you to wait until they receive the product to send a replacement or refund) and advise everyone not to make the same mistake again.

Since I was out a keyboard I went to best buy and price matched this down to a pretty reasonable price. I especially like how it advertises NKRO and then delivers it.

>usb doesn't support NKRO
but that's wrong, the corsair I picked up does it using 2 plugs

You'd normally be correct that it doesn't and even though the monoprice advertised none it couldn't even get 6 (a basic function EASILY possible with one USB).

And here's the kicker, the monoprice keyboard won't even connect through PS/2 with a logitech adapter, and good luck finding a USB to PS/2 adapter that isn't made by Logitech.

What why logitech adapter? I just bought one on ebay for a dollar from china and it worked giving me nkro.

Also the strafe keyboard has this switch problem in which the keys don't reset after a press for some reason. There are also LED problems and the keycaps are made from poor quality ABS, not to mention that when you want to get better keycaps once they start wearing out you can't because of the non standard layout >>56737591

haven't noticed anything like that, though I only have about 5 hours on the keyboard so far. I'm well within my return window, but unless I see an issue I'm happy with it.

>There are also LED problems

>>56761293
>non standard layout
That monoprice keyboard had an ISO enter key, as long as the A-Z keys are standard I don't see a problem, they're the only ones I even plan to replace.

Also, I don't see anything wrong with just the looks of worn ABS keys.

I didn't get a monoprice keyboard just a cheap $30 chink keyboard that had nkro, I didn't work with USB and an anon said to try it with PS/2 which did work, but I didn't like the switches because they were to light so I decided to go with corsair, but then the switch issue happened so I said fuck it and I just got an IBM model M.

Believe me I tried connecting it through PS/2 to see if that would give it NKRO, I actually really liked the minimalistic design.

It wouldn't even register power through the PS/2 port with a logitech adapter, and I spent an hour or so looking around the internet for one before I just said fuck these liars and RMA'd it.

Hopefully if mine has that switch issue it'll make itself obvious while I'm still in the return window.

Now, they could've been lying about any PS/2 compatibility in the first place, which fits right in with their track record.

WASD is my only option anyway, so I kept all the key sizes with what they offer.
Not sure on the exact dimensions on bottom row, but one key has to be 1x and two 1.25x. Alt seems to be the least useful so I made it smaller. I'll think about it some more.

>For a one-off keyboard, it's probably not worth designing a PCB but it's certainly an option.

The stock pok3r PBT caps are pretty thick aren't they? May as well stick with those.
