This was originally about some anon's request for recommendations at a reasonable price, of which they hoped buckling springs were a good option for gaming, Not saying the builder can't charge what they do but that is solidly out of the price range and not in a familiar layout.

Ducky and vortex share a lot of their manufacturing. Every "made in china" Ducky is actually made by vortex, and apparently RGB Pok3r is made by Ducky in taiwan.

On the inside, Pok3r RGB is pretty much a 60% ducky shine 5. It has a similar PCB, the same dual PCB design created by ducky, same leds, and even the lightning mode configurations work the same.

Scissor switches are just rubber domes with a square stabilizer that's crosses 2 pieces like a pair of scissors in order to make the key as short and flat as possible. Any decent mechanical switch is going to have taller keys.

The problem is that all mechanical keys are much taller then a scissor switch keyboard.
Also if this is going to be used in a work environment your colleges will kill you because of the loud noise a mechanical keyboard will produce. If you want a quiet mechanical keyboard then this is your only option:
They also make then in a mac layout too if that what you need.
Now if you want a mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting then get a ducky shine 5 for full
or a ducky one for TKL:

Sure, the BASE set is cheaper. Considering all keys -like the keys someone willing to oay $200-, Hydro becomes cheaper. It has ISO kit, winkeyless, 1800, accent kit, etc.

I wouldn't recommend the pok3r since the metal case is spray painted, resonates and it isn't fully programmable. The pbt keycaps are also laser etched, so despite being PBT, you'll want to replace them sometime in the future since the legends will fade.

The RGB version comes with doubleshot ABS keycaps, so this at least eliminates the keycaps problem.

That being said, for only 85 bucks, get it.

Typing on this with browns right now. I personally like the feel of the browns a lot. I like feeling a little bit of a bump as I press down keys, but I cannot stand the sound of the blues for more than 1 minute.

I am a mechanical keyboard noob though. I have typed on blues once, and I tried my friend's reds once. The blues felt nice and tactile, but they were obnoxious. The reds for me felt too light and I had a lot of missed keystrokes with them, however I liked that they weren't as loud and they were still faster than the blues.

These browns, to me as I type on them right now, feel tactile with enough resistance and general feel to make me confident that I should be missing less keystrokes, but they are not obnoxiously loud.

If you like the feel of blues but you can't stand the sound, fuck the /mkg/ memes and go with browns. It is the happy medium it was advertised to be, although yes I hear that clears are an even better alternative.

MOD-switch guy here>>56811659
I'm also jumping on this buy as well but steering clear of the gaterons since I am already familiar with them.

From the video posted earlier, I'm hard-pressed to go with MOD-Ms. Here's what a rep had to say about them:

"If you like the feel of Cherry MX clear switches, I would have to recommend the MOD-H switch as that is our heaviest switch. If you think that Cherry MX Clears may feel fatiguing after long typing periods, I would suggest considering the MOD-M switches. The MOD-M and MOD-L switches do feel a bit more tactile than the MOD-H switches due to the lighter spring weight. The MOD-L switches have a similar weight to the Cherry MX blues and Gateron blues."

Is re-painting a case with spray paint a bad idea?

no, as long as you do it properly the paint shouldn't ship off, There are a couple of guides on geekhack, reddit, etc.

just because it makes ping sounds doesn't mean the switches aren't incredibly smooth and satisfying to type on.

Why do people buy multiple colors of a specific key profile? SA sets in particular cost $60 to $200, and the only difference between sets is color. It seems like owning one keyset of each profile should be enough, then sell/trade the ones you don't like.

>> No.56839314

you'll see soon enough

nah jk they dropped Cherrys for Kailh at reduced expense to themselves and no savings passed onto customers while pretending they're the same quality. also cancerous fanbase and marketing.

I own a Razer mouse but I'd never buy one of their keyboards

>> No.56839351

they're not aesthetically pleasing, made with bad materials, and generally have bad quality control /w inconsistencies, dead switches, dead LEDs, etc.

they use kailh over cherry now but keep the price high just for the brand name.

they feel just as good as any other mechanical keyboard for the first couple months i guess, but after that i noticed that every key was inconsistent, and a couple of switches were just straight up dead.

>> No.56839469

they're expensive but other than that they're pretty good and there's nothing wrong with their switches, it's their own design and they control the production process and their switches are consistent which you can't say for most chink boards

good tkl keyboard with detachable usb cord? feels like my kbt oni is kicking the bucket and shopping for a tentative replacement

>> No.56839492

I need help finding a keyboard. I use a Model M at home, and I love the feel of buckling springs, but I need a quiet or silent version of that for work, but I've never really used anything other than a buckling spring for extended use. Right now I'm using a Cherry MX Red keyboard, but it sucks fucking dick for typing because there's zero response, and I'm constantly having accidental keypresses with my resting hand because it's such weak shit.

tl;dr: Live in USA, don't care if ISO or ANSI, need a keyboard/switch that is as close to buckling spring as possible, but quiet/silent.

>> No.56839520

I use Clears at my job typing in an office and nobody has ever complained about it. Great switch, I use a Pok3r, would recommend.

>> No.56839563

I have a model M too and the only cherry switch that I have used that can come close to it is a cherry blue. But I wouldnt recommend it since it 's about as loud. Now if you want a better option then look at Matias quiet click switches.

Dampened alps then. Vintage boards are hard to come by and require protocol converters. Matias quiet for new ones.
