This site is owned by SP and sell keycaps in a variety of profiles (see pic). They are all PBT dye-sub except for SA profile that's double shot ABS. They are on the pricier side of things, but they do have some of the best keycaps you can buy. Also make sure to check which profile you are getting as there is a difference between DCS, DSA, SA, and G20

So, I'm down to a few choices for my first mechanical keyboard. I will not spend more than ~65€ for now.

>Monoprice Select Series - Cherry MX Red

>Noppoo Lolita Spyder 87
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mechanical-Keyboard-Noppoo-Switches-backlit/dp/B00T1P80XY

Cherry MX is clearly better, but I also like the smaller tenkeyless keyboards which, on this list, only have Kailh and Zorro switches.

Another thing to consider is the fact that my wrists are kinda fucked up and I need some light actuation keys. Are Blues heavier because of the click/bump or does it make little difference compared to Reds? Are blacks even worth it?

I'd appreciate some final thoughts on this choice or even another suggestion.

>>56925291
Get the lolita, judging by what you're saying it'd suit your preferences best and Kalih is a fairly decent OEM, nothing special like gateron, but one of the bigger ones and certainly amongst the more reputable ones.

Blues have a weight of 55g, reds 45g. So yes, blues are a bit heavier than reds, but they're both considered light switches. You probably don't want to bother with blacks if you want something light.

Personally, I consider even 45g to be somewhat heavy right now, but I've been typing on 35g linears for the past three weeks or so. 45g is about the lightest weight that you'll find in commonly available switches.

>>56925291
Blacks are one of the heavier switches out there and the clicking mechanism doesn't offer any significant weight since you bottom out the switch anyway when typing.
If you like smaller compact keyboards why not get a noppoo choc mini?

rubberdomes average around 80g of force, while laptop chiclet keyboards have round 65g.

Blues on the other hand are around 45g so the weight shouldn't be a problem.

Also the noppoo is more expensive because of the better keycaps and switches (these aren't kailh)

I'm talking to someone who unironically uses their Smartphone as a PC. Can you open a terminal? Can you install your own software? Do you even have a file manager? But you'd have us believe you use meta keys? Really? for what "app"?

You're struggling to brows this thread right now on your shitty screen. I have 20+ tabs open I can ctrl-pg between, am one alt-tab away from getting back to work, two away from a terminal, one button away from volume, one meta press away from music player control, and I can control the screen brightness with the function keys. Oh and my computer programs have menus.

I'm not even a power user. This is literally how shit gets done, and what's needed to do it. Your shitty phone and shitty keyboard get in the way of working. You are wasting your life on these excuses for personal computing.

Do you even know what the windows key does? Does it do anything on a smartphone? Win-E? Win-D? Why are you wasting your time on such a crippled device when you could have a rich client interface?

Most people don't ever use it. I don't use it a whole lot myself, and in the event that I do, I just use one of my other seven boards that happens to have one. There's no need to put your mouse the far away from your typing area for the sake of something that you never use.
You can also get standalone numpads for that matter.

>Wrist rest
Wrist rests that are integrated into the keyboard suck ass. You can get plenty of standalone wrist rests in various materials and sizes.
I just use a small towel since it's really comfy and you can just throw it into the washing machine every other week.

If it matters, I have one gripe with my Magicforce. You can't use modifiers in conjunction with the FN key. So, for example, if you're using Linux, pressing Ctrl + ALT + F2 to access terminal isn't possible. You'll have to make your own shortcuts to work around this problem.

my curiosity can finally be laid to rest. just got the CM switch tester with cherry switches and a novatouch switch.

>it's literally nothing?
>rubberdome memes?

well, the novaswitch feels almost exactly like the Dell Quietkey which i love the feel of. the fact that it's cherry mx compatible is nice. still haven't had raw experience with a topre but if its the same nature of switch, i can't say im impressed and definitely would not fork out $200+ for one.

i can confidently scratch a topre of my list of keyboards to own:

layouts owned - 108-key, 104-key w/ macros, TKL, 84-key, 60-key, 1800

kbs by switch - NMB rubberdome, cherry mx red, cherry mx blue, cherry mx black, gateron blue, gateron brown, alps white skcm, matias click

upcoming - tada68 w/ MOD-M switches

last keyboard - something with buckling springs, IBM Model M but probably unicomp since windows key

This general gets slower and faster all the time, a few weeks of slow threads followed by a few weeks of faster threads is nothing new. The general got a bit slower slower overall compared to a year ago, but that's because shitposting has gone down massively since about half a year or so.

Overall, the mechanical keyboard market has been growing constantly. 30 bucks chinkboards weren't even a thing a year ago.

So I'm putting together a 60% keyboard.
I have two questions-
Firstly for the GH60, I see plastic cases for it- it looks like they're clones of the Pok3r cases, is this correct? I may upgrade to the Aluminum case for it at some point, if I find one cheap enough.

Secondly, I see plates for the top (so I can make the switches plate mount), will these plates work with these plastic cases I see?

Picture is an example of the plastic cases I'm seeing.
