Okay newfags 99% of your mechanical keyboards are a meme. Cherry switches (all colors) are for cheap faggots who wouldn't know a good switch if it came up and slapped the tranny they call a gf.

Fixed your typo for you.

Also capacitive buckling springs > hammer over membrane buckling springs

>> No.57417559

Agreed, I tried some blue alps and they felt pretty damn awesome.

Also agree, capacitive springs do feel better however getting Model F's with decent layouts isn't really possible without modifications of some sort. My F107 is the closest thing to a normal 103 key layout however it's missing some function keys due to the F keys being on the side. My model F 84 key at is the next closest thing to standard however that too had to be modified to get rid of the stupidly large enter key and 1u backspace. They would be perfect if the layouts weren't so shit. Also, non removable cables suck.

If you're looking at anything over $120, you should probably go for a unicomp spacesaver, which will be about $85 if you live in the USA.

Basically, start by remembering that you can get a brand new board for $85, that has only marginally lower build quality than the original model Ms. Then ask yourself how much more you're willing to pay to have a heavier base (and no menu keys/USB support).

>> No.57433642

no it isn't they are fundamentally and mechanically similar. The major difference is that in topre a capacitive sensing mechanism on the PCB senses the keypress mid-actuation. While in traditional membranes a conductive layer connects a pair of circuit traces together

If you were to try would you be able to bottom out less? Do you overall like them more than MX Clears?
I would say that the activation mechanisms are fundamentally different as Topre doesn't require one to bottom out, however, the feeling the operator experiences are similar. I don't notice the little spring but I do like the cushiony feeling of the rubber dome bottoming out, which I can't avoid.

>> No.57433734

>If you were to try would you be able to bottom out less?
Maybe, but it seems like that'd take much more effort than on clears. There's about 1mm of travel after the bump. Maybe the matias clicks have more travel after the bump since the slider isn't damped? I've only had it for a few hours now, so I'm not sure if I'll end up preferring them over clears. The extra tactility sure is nice though.

If only I didn't dislike DSA profile.

They get polished by the oils on your fingertips. So even if they aren't supposed to be shiny (and those obviously aren't) they'll quickly end up that way. It's not harmful, but it can be unsightly and unpleasant to touch.

PBT is immune to this effect, but caps made with it are more expensive because the tooling is harder to make.

The spring is the electrostatic capacitive component. It's not holding the key up and it's not supposed to contribute to the keyfeel. Hell it can't even hold up a 1g ABS keycap by itself.

As the spring's coils compress and come closer together from the dome collapsing on it, the spring's capacitance changes and this change is what is sensed by the PCB.

There's no actuation/contact mechanism at all, which is why it's proper to call it a capacitive switch rather than mechanical, and why they're more reliable than common rubber dome over membrane.

I'm still waiting for Ellipse to stop being a gigantic faggot and start making some capacitive buckling spring boards with modern layouts and non-nostalgiashit cases.


2KRO means the board is guaranteed to properly register at least two keys being pressed anywhere on the board. ie: you could have row/column collisions, but you can always at least single out one key by row and one by column.

You can still register more than two keys in a lot of cases, it just depends on the matrix layout and which keys are being pressed. It's not like you can't ctrl-alt-delete on a 2KRO board for example.

Model Fs are NKRO but they're all pre-ANSI layout.

All capacitive and hall effect boards have NKRO by necessity of the switch design.

Can you ctrl+shift+esc at least? Probably the single most useful keyboard shortcut in Windows

So that's the key combo I've been looking for.

Is the ducky pocket still a thing?

>> No.57436455


Yes, all common key combos work. Matrix layouts always give modifier keys high priority because they're specifically meant to be pressed with other keys.

All common shitty rubberdome keyboards are 2KRO too and if a key combo wouldn't work on one of those it never would have been added to the OS in the first place since virtually no users would be able to us it.

I feel like you can probably do better for $80. A CM Storm TKL is that much on Amazon and it has legit Cherry switches instead of whatever these Greetech ones are.

Fix your current keyboard?

>> No.57437879

Dunno where to begin. If it's a short don't I have to replace the board? All the guides I'm reading involve washing the kb after the spill, but the key's already gone.

>> No.57437903

Generally just cleaning the board fixes most water damage. But ya it can be a bit of a pain in the ass. I don't know how tough the Fillcos are to take apart.

As for recommendation on new keyboard I don't know.

So, after some research, I have concluded that I have no fucking clue how to proceed with converting it since I have no access to soldering materials.
What should I do with it?

Convert it when you have access to soldering materials. You can't possibly be in such a hurry, amirite?
