>Location (continent at least)
East coast USA
>Preferred switch type
None in particular. I've only used cherry MX blue (and Razer's copy of them) before regularly but I'd be open to considering similar ones.
>Form factor
100% or tenkeyless + separate numpad. Numpad and ins,delete,pgup/down are necessary. So are all function keys.
Preferred yes but not in crazy colors and not entirely necessary.
>Previous/current keyboards
Razer blackwidow 2014 (please don't fuck me up) and some corsair one with MX blues. Too long ago to remember specifics.

>> No.57132085

If you like tactile clicky switches then maybe consider greens they are heavier then blues at 80g of force compared to blues 50g.
Unfortunately this is the only one I was able to find in stock at the moment (and the LEDs aren't that bad, I have the same keyboard too)

Now If you want an even more tactile option then consider matias switches. There aren't that many options compared to cherry, but they are still fun to type on

File: 167 KB, 1023x682, unicomp.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

If you want something unique then you could go for a buckling spring keyboard. Unicomp sells them new for 80 bucks or you can get some used on ebay.

Buckling springs are the only switch where the tactile feedback and click happen at the exact moment of actuation. No other switch does that, which gives them a unique feel. They style of the keyboard may not be for all, but it much more enjoyable to type on in my opinion

This came in today, my first mechanical:


Feels real nice. There's quite a bit of pinging on some of the keys, though, especially when they're released. From what I've read this seems to be common on Cherry style switches with a metal plate between the pcb and switches?

Max keyboard has a set, but they're expensive as fuck. Take the stock keycaps, or get some backlight laser etched keycaps, and sand off the tops. Then polish them. Make sure you keep track of which key goes where when you're doing it, and don't sand them down too much. At the end, you'll have the blank white/semitransparent plastic on top with black sides.

While I'm fairly sure that we won't be involved in the next world war (which seems to be just around the corner), I don't think it'll be due to the topographical nature of our country. Invading Switzerland wouldn't be particularly difficult, sure you'd have those mountainous areas, but those aren't very populated and would only serve as a recluse for soldiers, who in turn would get demoralized quite quickly since the whole civilian population would be under enemy occupation.

The only reason we didn't get invaded in WWII is because we were already kissing the asses of the Nazis and they had better things to conquer first.

If you want doubleshot keycaps, get ABS. Doubleshot PBT looks like shite.

If you want PBT, get blanks or dyesubs. I think leddit has a whole list of keycap retailers.

While I find your choice of ISO somewhat regrettable, that is a very nice looking keyboard.

Depends what you're using it for. If you don't do any number crunching, a TKL is great. The smaller size just looks better IMO, saves space on your desk, and also helps on not needing to open up your arms to use the keyboard and mouse. If you do type numbers, even if semi regularly, the numpad is really helpful, and using the number row is slow and kind of a pain. The numpad may also be helpful if you play MMOs and stuff like that.

I personally just use my keyboard to shitpost and play vidya, and when I am working, I very rarely do any number typing on the programs I use like Photoshop, so a TKL is perfect.

I guess I had just used a keyboard that didnt require as much pressure for a LONG time.

pls respond

Can confirm, I don't use the number pad too often but I am happy to have it when I do use it, was worth it just for those scenarios. If I didn't use it I would definitely forgo because it uses a lot of desk space

Cherry blues should not feel hard to press. They're lighter than most rubberdome and chicklet keyboards.

il be going to college next year for either Computer Science or Mechanical Engineering so il probably get one with the numpad then. Im sure il be using numbers in both of those.

Thanks for all the help.

the whole point of the keyboard is that it splits, but if for some reason you want it as a whole then you can

For me, I really prefer having the mouse basically right where the numpad is. I had a few classes that used Matlab pretty heavily. I just got a USB numpad and used that on the left side. I use it for dwarf fortress too.
Unfortunately, it's not mechanical, but I guess you can't have everything (unless you're rich enough to have one of those extremely rare Japanese buckling spring separate numpads. Or, hmm. Maybe I could get a unicomp keyboard and saw off the numpad and run it on a teensy or something).

Actually it was a while ago that I bought it, they might have USB numpads with cherries or alps switches in it now.

I think they're called desk mats. Though I've actually seen them called just mouse pads before, even though they're that huge.
Somebody on /csg/ got one with a NES/Famicom controller pattern.
I've seen them on massdrop too.

>> No.57154350

i never even considered a usb numpad. It wouldnt be too big of a deal if its not mechanical.

By chance do you know if Rosewill makes good mechanical keyboards?

>> No.57154392

I've used a rosewill rk9000 with blues for 5 years now, it's been fine

I did read about a later revision to the board that added a removable cable that caused some problems but idk if that has been fixed in the latest version of the keyboards, I think they're on the 3rd or 4th generation since I got mine, might have RGB by now or something.

>> No.57154402

They're called 'extended mousepads' because they're..you know..bigass mousepads.
I actually got two but the other one is too edgy for my tastes.
