Okay so I wasn't expecting to care this much about my keyboard, but seeing as I've fallen down the hole of keyboard autism, I'm revising my original request post.

>Budget
Not to concerned with this, I don't expect the base keyboard to go over $500, or some absurd amount.

>Location (continent at least)
USA. California, if it matters.

>Preferred switch type
Basically a quiet/silent version of a buckling spring. I like the tactile response and heavy actuation weight.

>Layout
ISO if possible. I really, really, like ISO. I'll deal with ANSI if I absolutely have to, but ISO is too pretty.

>Form factor
60% or 80%. 60% preferable, but not the biggest concern.

>Backlight
Doesn't matter.

You know buckling springs are the only mechanical switch where the tactile responce and click hapen at the exact moment of actuation. No other switch does that, however you can buy a new production model F that fits all those checkmarks.

Seems like the consensus so far has been Matias Quiet. Seeing as actual usage quality is more important than looks, it looks like that's what I'm going to have to go with, which is unfortunate, because some research shows that Matias' don't have a lot of available keycaps, since most are made with Cherry stems, which sucks because I was really excited about the Godspeed keycaps.

That said, does anyone know of any way to modify Cherry keycaps to work with Matias switches?

Alternatively is there a sort of universal keycap? I believe I've seen a sort of double cap before, where there's a blank smooth keycap, and then sort of a secondary, thinner cap, that goes on top of that.

I'd really like to get the SA/DSA style caps for the Matias.

Alps type switches are fantastic but keycap options are sadly lacking because they don't have meme status.

I've never seen alps/cherry hybrid caps nor an easy way to make them fit each other's stems. The mounts are very different and their cross-sections conflict.

Also I've only seen IBM buckling spring boards with those two-part keycaps you describe.

Do you find it difficult to be accurate? I'm looking for the absolute lowest resistance possible, while still having actual travel (ie not one of those touch keyboards), but often touch the sides of other keys when pressing the one I'm aiming for and am worried that it will lead to lots of typos with a light linear.

It took me a few days to get used to switches this light, but I don't make more typos than I do with my seven other mechanical keyboards.

I'd easily say that these are my favorite switches, up there with Topre. They're incredibly nice to type on, it just feels like you're pushing down on a pillar of air that dissipates as you push down on the keycap.

I haven't done a whole lot in the direction of replacing springs except for one or two in single switches, but there's not a whole lot to it. Just make sure you put the switch together again the right way and you're golden.

barebones is probably referring to the keyboard without any keycaps, blanks should be self-explanatory and mod keycaps are the keycaps that are featured in the pictures.

Current keyboard is a logitech G710 with Cherry MX Blue's but i have most of my typing life spent on a rubber dome G15.

Any good recommendations /g/? I am sick of how large this thing is... (pic related)

Been using this for a month and love it, however, I prefer mechanical switches for vidya, so I decided I'll make a board this time.

So far got:

70 pack of Zealios (10 extra just in case)
Granite DSA
GH60 pcb from ebay
and making an aluminum case on my CNC as well as a stainless steel plate if I can manage not fucking up the sharp edges (may have to waterjet)

Design is going to be literally the same as my HHKB since I've grown accustomed to the layout, except with a plate.

Anyone know of a better material, plate-wise? I have access to many options.

Well, I'm not going to deny that, but please explain how that would work. Since there's nothing providing resistance to push down and actuate the switch other than the switch, the only thing that I could see causing actuation would be the resistance of the air, in which case I'd have to move that keyboard pretty damn fast.
Unless there's something I'm missing of course, see my initial statement.

So I had a look and am thinking of this, the Ducky Shine 5 Mechanical Keyboard. It's the brown switch version which, according to their site is a Tactile switch. I'd much rather a Clear for a bit of more stiffness as I am a bit heavy handed with my typing.

I'm building a gaming rig (this is not why I've chosen the one with the most lights on it) and will apply this keyboard mostly to gaming. I think it's a good choice, what do you guys think?

pick up a slinky and shake it around. There's nothing pushing against it, so it should just move rigidly as though it were a ridgid object, right?

The answer to your dumb question is inertia. I don't know why you would use "physics" as the reason something doesn't happen when you don't know how physics works.

Keys don't actuate if you shake a board around because the springs are pushing back with enough force to prevent that. except for that spacebar the other anon mentioned, in that case the spring is too weak since the spacebar is heavier than the other keys, and also maybe poorly balanced?

When dealing with the springs from a cherry mx board inertia is pretty much not a factor. The material the spring is made of has more of an effect then inertia. The spring constant and its tensile/torsion properties plays more into the switch actuating just by shaking it. Not to mention the spring isn't suspended in air there are other parts such as the plastic housing, the metal leaf, plastic stems, etc.
Summing up everything as inertia is a just wrong

If they only offered say a TKL set then they can drop the price down to $80. However if you wanted to include an ISO kit that would be extra, or if you use a non standard row that would also be extra. So in order to make it cheaper overall they include every key they manufacture. And while $150 for a custom set might seem to high its actually about the average these things cost with all the options.

Another cheaper option might be the godspeed set on massdrop.

Using almost exclusively an x230 for the past year and a bit. Really used to the keyboard and I like the size. One thing that would be tough for me to get used to is separation of the function keys because they are squished together on the x230 keyboard. Also the fn and Ctrl switch.

I'm going to assume you are the same person

One recommendation would be the noppoo choc mini (pic related) for arounf a 100 usd. It sells in a variety of switches and comes with a couple of LED options.

A supper cheap option would be the Tomoko. it only comes with blue Outemu switches, but its water resistant and costs $35
https://www.amazon.com/TOMOKO-Mechanical-Keyboard-Water-Resistant-Anti-ghosting/dp/B01DBJTZU2
As far as build quality is concerned the consistency of the switches isn't the best as their quality control is not as good as cherry, but its still a very solid keyboard for the low price it has.

Now the one that I would recommend the most out of all the options out there is a Ducky one TKL. https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/search.php?keyword=&brand=1&switch=&size=Tenkeyless&led=&capmat=&capprint=&model=&availability=&show_kb=off&show_kb=on&show_acc=off&show_acc=on

I'll be getting MOD-M switches. I've used Cherry MX Blue and Red, Gateron Blue and Brown, and Alps Whites. Rep's told me that MOD-M will probably be the best fit as they're a bit heavier than Cherry MX Blue but with a longer, stronger tactile bump that, according to a YouTube video testing the MODs, feels similar to Topre 45g.

I'm in doubt that MOD switches can replicate the crispy feeling of Alps/Matias switches but it'll be good enough for me since the switches are compatible with most of my keycap sets.

That could be on purpose.

Like ALPS switches, where the stem is allowed some wobble room to reduce friction. Contrast with NMB space invaders, which are the most stable switches known but need to be lubed before they're great to type on.

>>56865670
>I thought Gaterons were bad because they're just clones

All these non-cherry MX-style switches are clones. Gaterons though are generally regarded as superior to Cherry's own switches. They're smoother and the clicky/tactile variants have more pleasant tactile feedback because Gateron actually took into account user feedback and designed the tactile bumps on their sliders to that effect.

Key wobble is a matter of how much the stem inside the switch is allowed to tilt. As long as it's not excessive enough to make you miss keys or collide keycaps, it actually makes the switch smoother since there's less stem-on-housing contact during the keystroke.

i have noppoo choc mini rgb with noppoo blue switches and i think they're fine although i haven't tried gaterons for comparison. if you don't need rgb lighting (i think rgb only comes with noppoo switches) then gaterons should be a safe choice since those are more common and praised in the mech keyboard community. but there could be some minor version differences besides the switches, like the gateron version doesn't have a removable cable, don't know if the non-rgb noppoo switch version has a removable cable but mine with rgb does.

It's a very nice form factor, fully programmable, comes with 1.5mm dyesubbed PBT in cherry profile, the plastic case and the metal plate are both solid as shit and it comes with a wide variety of switch options.

All of that for roughly 100 bucks. Let me know once you find another keyboard that offers this much value at this price. Even if it were to cost twice as much, I could easily consider this one of the best keyboards I've ever come across.

With MOD switches it comes to $139, which is the same price as a Pok3r RGB, that also has thick PBT keys (although laser-etched) and an aluminium case (painted but whatever).

At that price if I had to choose, I think Pok3r still has better value unless MOD switches become a hotter meme than overpriced membra-err I mean Topre.

Of course, if you go for the newfangled switch that literally just hit the market it's going to be more expensive.

Last I checked the keycaps on the pok3r RGB were doubleshot ABS. And the plastic case of the tada feels almost as sturdy as the metal case of my friends poker, with the difference that the plastic case of the tada doesn't resonate when you hit the spacebar.

And full programmability is godsend.

I'll never buy a board using mini/micro USB for connection. I mean christ, it's bad enough these ports are unreliable on phones. What are they thinking using them for detachable keyboard cables?

How much does the double tapping difficulty matter in games? These are the two I've found

holy shit, why didn't more keyboard makers went with this design?
you get smaller keyboard with all the navigation keys, but also a numpad if you desire

way better than a standard tenkeyless in my opinion

Depends on the game. For RTS/MOBA you end up mashing keys for abilities that are on cooldown to get them to go off as soon as possible.

Guess that won't affect me since FPS and RPG Strategy are what I use the keyboard for most
I can't seem to find a keyboard lower than $73 and the rest are out of stock though. The CM store is also down

I'm not from /g/, just visiting.
Do mechanical keyboards feel/work better?
Are they like the microswitches on arcade sticks vs contacts?

That's what It reminds me of.

Personally I don't use a numpad ever, so it's not necessary. I also think it''s uglier, but that's just my opinion.

It's fully programmable, for one.
And it's solid aluminium, for another.

how about we go even more hipster then that

Might end up salvaging a blackwidow to make a planck with jailhouse blues. So far I tested the oring version of that mod and it feels really hair trigger like. Almost like sensitive clears and much more silent.
Only thing holding me back from doing it is the possibility of the switches hanging and the eventual inconsistencies from switches.

Should I do it?

Not at those muns.

We need to convince some chink manufacturers to start making capacitive buckling springs.

It's wide open because the patent is kill.

thats way to expensive tho

Not like you'd be able to get a kishsaver any cheaper. It's a new production run with better materials than the original, so as long as you really want capacitive buckling springs then go for it.
