dear /mkg/, thank you and goodbye.

I switched to cherry mx blue switch keyboard last year after using Dell one for ages. it was nice but I still couldn't type fast and my fingers/thumbs were hurting from hitting the sides of the keys.. which happened occasionally. then I upgraded to cherry mx red switches and I liked those a lot more. but I still hated the height of keys and occasional pain in my fingers.

I went to a recent local autist user group aka Linux Users Group and one guy there brought his computer to the meet to show his dual GPU setup and other things with Arch. anyway, he had this apple keyboard and when I asked him why he used it, he said it was the easiest to type on. I tried it and liked it a lot.

I went on Craigslist, looked at used keyboard and one guy was selling a brand apple USB keyboard for $15... because key #9 on numpad was missing. I picked it up and have been using it since. It's fucking GOAT.

oh, and I went to apple store and they fixed it within 2 min. they just popped a new 9 key on it.

tl;dr: mechanical keyboards are not GOAT at all. if you want something that doesn't fuck your hands, get a high quality chicklet keyboard.. apple makes the best ones.

ps: anyone wanna buy a used pok3r keyboard?

as someone who's been suffering from RSI for years and has been regularly posting in this thread, I had to get it off my chest.

they're still not low enough. that keyboard reminds me of the one I got with an HP computer years ago.

I prefer having the bottom of my wrist resting firmly on my desk. I also don't want my fingers to be in the air at all. I find this position the best.

anyway, for ~$40 (or even cheaper if you do what I did and buy a keyboard with a missing key and then fix it for free) you can get a GOAT keyboard that works well for RSI sufferers.

that's actually bad for you and is one of the causes for RSI.
You are only supposed to use a computer for an hour then have a 10 minute break before going on for another hour.
A mechanical keyboard also helps because a rubber dome requires ~90g of force to press the keys while some mechanical ones only require ~35g. Not to mention the raised fingers and ergonomic options. But its your hands anyway

>What is the point of a mechanical if they are just louder and a $10 rubber dome will last 5 years
There are mechanical keyboards that are quieter then rubber domes. There are also mechanical keyboards that will last 40+ years.
There are also mechanical keyboards that have no tactile feedback, unlike rubberdomes which do. There are also mechanical keyboards that require less force to force then rubber domes. There are also mechanical keyboards that have increased tactile feedback compared to rubberdomes. There are mechanical keyboards which have higher or lower actaution points compared to rubberdomes.

I can go on, but the point is that mechanical keyboards have many more options compared to rubberdomes and that's why people buy them. Its because they want something that offers more durability and has a satisfying feeling to it. Or rubberdomes are to loud so you buy matias quiet click switches instead

But it's not like I want no tactile feedback, and it's not like the noise really matters. My dad has a well built rubberdome microsoft curve keyboard that he must have had for nearly 20 years now.

You can bet that a rubber dome keyboard will be much cheaper per year than the vast majority of mechanical keyboard. Say for example I have a $10 keyboard that last 5 years, that's $2 per year, a mechanical keyboard might cost $100 so you would have to be using it for 50 years without spilling a bottle of piss all over it, and I can't promise that.

Their key travel is very short, and results in you bottoming them out.

since mechanical keyboards have almost twice the travel distance to actuate a heavier switch say 80g might be a lot easier to not bottom out compared to chiclet keyboards.
Right now I'm using blues with 45g of force need to actuate and when typing some of the switches don't bottom out. If they were heavier I'm sure I would never bottom out.

ahhaah... thanks for a laugh. I've suffered from RSI for about 10 years and have tried it all. I've spent over $2000 on various BS gizmos that help you alleviate RSI (btw, Kinesis keyboard was my biggest waste of money.. stay away).

Having your elbows FLAT on the armrests. elbows at 90 degrees and wrists FLAT on the desk is the best ergo position you can have. keyboard that's LOW to the desk is a must as well (forget about those keyboard with wrist supports... they elevate your hands no matter how you position them).

I highly doubt that since I barely bottom out my blues which require about half the force of rubberdomes. Its svery simple I don't like the heavy weight that membrane keyboards have and the only other option is mechanical keyboards. Its feels much nicer for my fingers as I cannot stand the heavy weight. Also when rubberdomes get much it feels like you are just slamming your fingers on a black of wood with a rubber pad on it. The fact that my mechanical keyboard will never end up feeling like that after years of use is much better then spending 5-10 bucks every couple of years. Also rubberdomes really start to strain my fingers after a couple hours of typing. My blues don't do that and when I have scientific review papers to type every little distraction is amplified 10 times due to the stress.

well I like clicky keyboards so I went with blues. I've seen youtube videos of people with matias quiet click keyboards that are even quieter then rubberdomes, so I guess you can buy one of those. I don't really have a lot of money to spend on a keyboard so I didn't buy one, heck I overspent on the ducky one by 20 bucks because some anon on here convinced me too, not to mention it was also at a discounted price. Also I am really loving these PBT keycaps it has. They are much softer then ABS and are much more resistant to shine, so I would deffinatly buy a keyboard that has some even if you have to spend some extra money. Overall I am happy with the keyboard, it has plenty of macro features but I never use them since I'm not that into gaming.

If you'd been suffering from RSI you would know that this is what causes and inflames carpal tunnel.

You would also know that the repeated impacts from bottoming out hard, such as when a dome collapses and offers no further resistance, will aggravate the finger joints over time. The rubber cushioning of the impact helps a little bit, but not near enough.

Bumping other keys with your fingertips isn't RSI; it's clumsiness and lack of typing skill, and it's why you gravitate towards gigantor island keys.

Now that I have the tada, I actually do. This thing is pretty much perfection in keyboard design to me.
Though having some variety is nice.

As for tinkering, I absolutely love building things. Coming up with an idea and making it a reality is one of the most satisfying feelings I know. Trying out things and thinking of how you could use them for something is fun.

You could spend something around 100 bucks (plus shipping) on DSA profile keycaps from signature plastics.
That's about your only option in terms of keycaps, unless you find a group buy for some set that supports all kinds of ridiculous layouts, though that'd probably get even more expensive.
You can't do a whole lot in terms of aesthetic customization with a fucker as non-standard as this one.

Yeah, though I don't mind the lacking arrow keys on a 60%, I find actually having dedicated arrow keys to be quite comfy. With the full programmability of the tada, having that extra row on the right is especially nice since you can use it for media controls or whatever else you like.

>I look forward to seeing whatever you come up with.

Gateron clears, they're 35g linears.

Gaterons aren't as consistent in weighting and have more wobble than cherry switches, but I can't really complain, given that they're a whole lot cheaper than cherry and miles smoother. Gateron is like cutting through warm butter while cherry is rubbing your cheek against sanding paper.

The inconsistency in weighting and the wobble both aren't really noticeable unless you actually go out of your way to feel up the switches individually.

I'll need a picture of that.

Yeah, I've been using the TADA68 the entire time since I got it two weeks or so ago. It's almost sad to admit, the HHKB is a nice board, but this here beats it by a good shot.

The AEK is pretty much done. I applied wood finish to the case and screwed in the plate, but now I'm suddenly getting problems with switches on the home row triggering the keys on the row above. It's probably a hardware issue, though a primary visual inspection didn't give anything away, especially since the relevant pins on the controller are too far apart to touch anyway.
That was last week. Next step would be checking things with a multimeter, but I was too busy (read: being a lazy shit) this whole weekend to get on with that. At least I'm going to be learning CAD next week, that should lead to some fun with the CNC.

They're perfectly fine for gaming, but if you use the left-side modifiers a lot, as in having to keep them pressed down, then you'll end up getting pain in your forearm at some point.

Though after replacing the left-shift with a cherry black that pain went away in a matter of half a month or so.

At the time it was not common for a 60% board to be fully programmable and be able to accommodate a number of different key layouts. Nowadays I'd bet there are a dozen different 60% boards that can do that.

Looks good, TMK so it’s customizeable as hell (fully programmable), supports a ton of physical layouts, diodes and whatnot already soldered (at least from TechKeys). It’s also inexpensive.

There’s not much variation in PCB’s really, but the GH60 is probably the best (unless I missed one) and only more expensive than chink shit.

Is it easy to fix a keyboard with the right soldering tools?

I assume that the most frequent problem would be damage in the area where the cable connects to the PCB

>> No.56895594

depends it could be that or a faulty switch. If the switch spring and stem need to be replaced then you can easily do that. If the switch mechanism is faulty then you need to desolder the switch and solder in a new one.

>> No.56895694

but even if it's the cable connector that's fucked it's not a huge pain to solder right?

faulty switches seem easy to solder

I'm just worried that there is something that is too difficult to do and would render the board unrepairable (aside from the obvious things like a physically destroyed pcb)

There was what looked like a brand new mxblue filco going on shitbay that said it was broken. It had nice aftermarket keycaps too. Some genius paid ~50USD for it though at the last second of the auction so I didn't get it. I fucking paid 65USD for my fully functioning full board Filco.

Topre boards don't actually have discreet switch modules. When they fail it's usually the PCB, which you aren't going to fix if you can't handle a contact switch.

but I assume the chances of a PCB failure are slim on topre boards. Wouldn't the problem usually be the cabling contact?

Makes sense. I keep forgetting that people are rough on their boards so they are more likely to be prone to a wide range of issues.

From what I understand, you would have more luck picking up Cherry MX boards because discreet switch modules give a higher chance of success with repair. Correct me if this is a wrong novice assumption

It's strange, a Filco board that looked practically brand new was listed as broken. I see more Leopold boards like this as well. They appear to be in great physical condition. I suppose something like a spill or unskilled modding could have permanently damaged internals. I know shit about repair but want to get a decent soldering set for basic fixes.

Issue is my thumb. Mechanical kb/cherry spacebars are just uncomfortable. when I press the spacebar, sometimes the side of my thumb hits the sharp edge and over time, it hurts me. see these pics from google image search that I just looked up... "keyboard thumb spacebar"

The spacebar profile has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the kb is mechanical. Full stroke rubberdome boards carry all the same profiles.

>when I press the spacebar, sometimes the side of my thumb hits the sharp edge and over time, it hurts me

My NMB vader board did that to me, though that's largely because the spacebar is fucking 140g to actuate. I swapped the spring with a 70g one and stopped bruising my thumb.

When mine broke, they took a key off one of the new keyboards they had around and they just replaced it.
