For the anon looking at the KBP V80 in the last thread, they showed up on Massdrop just this morning so if your shipping costs are low enough this could be a nice deal.

that's a first, most rubber domes are around 80g of force, heck apple keyboards have around 65g and are one of the lighter membranes out there.

How's it different from the ANSI enter key?

Sure, you're wasting some space where \ could be, but unless you hate yourself, you're going to be hitting it on the home row, where it's the closest to your pinky.

Its a rubber dome buddy and nothing you say will change that. The actuation mechanism are different, but in topre the rubber dome is there to provide the support, weight and tactile feedback of the switch. Rubber domes are an integral part of the mechanism and just because they aren't partially responsible for the actuation that doesn't automatically mean they don't exist.

There is nothing wrong with this and this implementation is much more durable then standard membranes, not to mention they don't have a mushy feeling, but don't say they aren't rubber domes because they are.

>>57447078

Rubber domes are a key return mechanism.

Whether or not they have a graphite contact affixed has no bearing on whether or not they are rubber domes.

Some cheap non-Topre rubberdome boards do not even have a contact on the dome itself, and instead press two separated portions of a membrane sheet together. In this case the contact is the upper sheet, not the dome.

Topres are rubber domes with an electrostatic capacitance sensing mechanism.

I've used ordinary Fujitsu dome boards that felt nice and snappy like Topres. If you could stick those into a Type Heaven case they'd easily fool a lot of people. It comes down to the quality of the rubber domes themselves: Cheap domes feel cheap because they are cheap.
I've never been able to get into Topres myself though. The collapsing dome forces you to bottom out and they mush when they do like any dome, which I can't stand.

They were genuine Realforce boards, and they certainly do mush. It's not like the rubber magically disappears when you bottom out. And you will bottom out. Not because you have to for switch registration, but because the force curve on collapsing the rubber dome leaves you with no alternative.

As you can see, I corrected him by telling him that the keyboard he posted is not the best keyboard in the world.
And then I told him I'd help him with that and posted an image of my HHKB.

As you can tell from the context, I was referring to the picture I posted when I wrote
>let me help you with that
Since the only keyboard in the picture I posted is my HHKB, you can tell that I was indirectly referring to my HHKB as the best keyboard in the world.

So, to answer your question, I do indeed think that my HHKB is the best keyboard in the world.

wat do?

I just bought this cheapo mech keyboard of amazon (VicTop 87) which has SwitchMaster Blues for £27, to replace my rubberdome Corsair K30.

I don't know if I like the change. I bottom out heavy since come from a rubberdome kb and the shock on the fingers and sound when typing is a little uncomfortable, although I am getting used to it.

Will O-rings solve this problem? I was thinking of getting these cheap chink 40-a ones for £2. The keycaps are thin abs, would PBT helps too?

If not should I go back to rubberdomes since I can't afford topre for now? I was thinking maybe the HHKB Lite2 which is £60.

Or should I give another switch type a try.

I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as pasta, is in fact, copy/pasta, or as I've recently taken to calling it, copy plus pasta. pasta is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning copy system made useful by the copy corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the copy system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of copy which is widely used today is often called pasta, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the copy system, developed by the copy Project.

There really is a pasta, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. pasta is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. pasta is normally used in combination with the copy operating system: the whole system is basically copy with pasta added, or copy/pasta. All the so-called pasta distributions are really distributions of copy/pasta!

Someone noticed my style of only using my index fingers to type (i still get 100-120wpm so whatever) and pointed out that i'm gonna get arthritis by the time im 30 if i don't do something. I was thinking maybe instead I could swap from rubber dome to light actuation mechanical with O-rings to cushion my fingers and reduce strain instead. What would be the switch of choice here?

>> No.57457710

>>57457663
First of all getting arthritis is bullshit, but if you insist,

Topre if you have the money, MX reds with o-rings if not.

Get the o-rings in 40A soft rubber.

Also, I've never tried them before, but it would make sense if those thick 2.5mm o-rings should provide more cushioning than the standard 1.5mm ones.

Gateron Clears have the lightest actuation force of all Cherry-style switches at 35g.

I've tried a lot of demo models in stores with MX blues, browns, reds, blacks, those weird Razer switches that are just mushier browns, a couple more obscure things that I couldn't immediately identify, and I don't like any of them nearly as much as I like my Model M.

I want a Model M with quieter, less stiff springs. Maybe 55-65g actuation instead of 80g.

Something about it being relatively lightweight and the case being acrylic plastic. Made me miss the steel plate mount and alu case from my pok3r that felt like it'd last me a decade or three. Also, realizing that while I like the customizable underglow, I'd actually prefer backlit keys instead. This thing came with a set of LEDs actually, but I don't have the equipment/space/effort to solder them in.
Switches are pure sex though, and would love to have them in my next board if I could. Maybe even heavier ones, since my piano fingers don't seem to mind.

you get what you pay for. expect dem first LEDs to malfunction soon.

mechanical RGB LED for under 60$? maybe for your 14yo son for his LAN sessions with snacks all over the palce.

if you want something satisfiing and solid, look upwards.

I have seen the "Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro L" for under 115$ a few days ago. This is not top quality I know, but should be far better than this and seems to be what you want. And then you spend only 65 bucks more and may be happy much longer.
