I know this is subjective so what is your opinion: red vs brown vs clear switches? Should I just go for clear?

>> No.57165229

Red is too light and not good.
Brown is too light and does not have enough tactile feedback. It's like a red with sand in it.
Clears are heavy and have a satisfying feel and sound.
Go for clears.

>> No.57165251

So far? Not bad. The plastic is a bit cheap, at least for the bezels at the top and the wrist rest, but the keycaps seem alright. The lights aren't terribly bright but they don't really need to be. The switches seem fine (They are advertised as Gaote/Outemu). No rough actuation or anything that I can feel, they feel pretty much like the Cherry blues on my RK-9000. There is a much different sound profile than my RK-9000 which could be down to the construction. The click is about the same but bottoming out has a lower tone which I actually prefer.

The metal top is certainly metal as far as I can tell, but it doesn't feel like super sturdy metal or anything, it's just a thin bit of sheet material. Keyboard seems solid enough though.

The programming is a bit weird when you're using the custom lighting mode.

>> No.57165267

Reds are nice and light.
Browns suck and you shouldn't get them or find them enjoyable.
Clears are nice and heavy.

That's about as much as I can tell you, there's a pretty stark contrast between reds and clears since the former is linear and light and the latter is tactile and heavy, they're both nice, but which one you prefer ultimately depends on your preferences.

Get a switch tester if you can't make your mind up.

As for finger fatigue with clears; I play a lot of FPS which involves holding down left-shift a lot, obviously, I use my pinky for that.
After four months or so I started getting pains in my lower arm. Replacing the clear in the left shift with a black made my pains go away again in less than a month.
My current daily driver is a board with 35g linears and I still don't consider clears particularly heavy or fatiguing. Unless you have babby fingers, clears are just fine.

>> No.57165480

I couldn't say really. They say they're using their own switches which is probably the most important thing to note. You might be able to find info on how good their cherry clones are, that's what I'd do at least.

>> No.57165511

Despite clears using a heavy spring, the heaviness doesn't really ramp up until after the actuation. So what happens is that you bottom out less with clears. You could always swap out the spring if you have weak girly hands anyway.

>> No.57165644

"Noppoo" switches are just Gaotes.

If there's one big hole and 2 small ones beside it, you can use plate or PCB.
