its a magnet that trips a sensor. They are more reliable then cherry switches due to the simplicity. Old Hall effect switches found on Honeywell keyboards had a life cycle of 30,000,000,000 compared to the 50,000,000 on cherry. These ones aren't as good I can grantee you, but I won't be surprised if they last longer then cherry again due to their simplicity

Rebind FN to L_Ctrl, then rebind Caps to Ctrl as normal:

-Unplug your Pok3r.
-Flip DIP 4 to "on".
-Plug your Pok3r back in and be VERY CAREFUL. Mistakes here usually require you to reset your layer, losing all that stuff you did before.
-First press Fn. Then press L_Ctrl. (That L_Ctrl key is now bound to Fn.)
-Now press Pn. Then press Pn again, assuming you don't want to move it. If you want to move it, then press that key instead.
-SUPER CRITICAL NOTE: Once you've flipped DIP 4, you must bind both Fn and Pn or else you can end up with one of them completely unbound which will require a reset of ALL layers. Hold both ALT keys for 5 seconds until the LED stops blinking.
-Now flip DIP 4 back to "off".
T-est your shit and make sure that works!
ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: Once you move your Fn to L_Ctrl, your "real" Fn key will automatically function as a Win key. In the case that you move your Pn key, it gets replaced by an App key. For a more complete expansion on what's happening here, see spoonraker's helpful comment.

Hey /mkg/

I have had pic related for a couple years now and about 2 months ago the left CRTL key stopped working properly. Basically, the switch will not detect a press unless it is perfectly vertical when pressed, any lateral force whatsoever and it does nothing, it will also stop detecting a press when lateral force is applied while it's pushed down.

I was wondering what the difficulty is in acquiring a replacement switch and swapping it out (I have no soldering experience nor do I currently own any of the necessary tools).

Alternatively, have any of you ever heard of this issue happening before with a switch? Is there a potential solution to this problem, maybe by sticking something under the keycap to prevent all lateral movement?

Thanks!

I'm currently using an old Dell keyboard I got for free when a school library ditched all its furniture, including computers, because of mold. It still has all the keys, but Return feels a bit wobbly. Given how much time I spend at the computer, I thought I could justify buying in a new one.
So, I'm thinking of trying out these mechanical meme keyboards people are always raving about. The options I'm specifically looking at are
>Turtle Beach Impact 600, MX Brown switches, 69.90e
>Logitech G410, Romer-G switches, 64.90e
The both look decent enough, but the latter is missing a numpad. Of course, I can always get an external numpad, so that's not a deal breaker, and I have some token respect for Logitech as a brand. They made my mouse, and it works well enough.

Is either of these blatantly shit? Are both? Should I just stick with the old keyboard?

maybe you can take the switch apart and replace the mechanisms inside.

>Romer-G switches
Don't bother with those Omron has always had problems manufacturing mechanical switches since forever and these are no exception. Not to mention that when your keycaps wear out finding high quality replacements would be impossible.

Now if you want you can get an old Dell AT101w with alps switches for cheap on places like eBay. But if you want brand new for that price you can get keyboards from Cooler Master, Rosewill, and Steelseries. I have never heard of Turtle beach keyboards, but they look like re brands of those Taiwanese keyboards you find for cheap on Taobao

Now if you want you can buy keyboards from China that have all sorts of features like programmable RGB lighting and macro support for cheap.

They definitely feel better and honestly I can never go back to ABS key caps again.
However when I was looking at reviews people said the key caps were fading. When I asked online I got replies like:
>Shut the fuck up faggot these are dye-sub PBT and the legends will never fade. Fuck off and go back to plebbit

Since I got a lot of these I thought that all those reviews were just trolls and I pulled the trigger. Then behold after one week of use the keycaps began to fade away on some of the keys. The weird thing was that these keys were barely used. Later I found out that these keycaps have a problem with bleaching and it quite common actually. So all those reviews online were right, but its still a great keyboard. I was planing on replacing the keycaps anyway with PBT SA profile so I don't mind as much

It's less for typing in the dark, more for gaming in the dark.

RGB is mainly aesthetic but many keyboards have different modes that light up and color code different keys depending on the game.

I've had this Noppo choc mini with blue switches for a few weeks now and I love it. I've only ever used reds and much prefer the blues because I don't bottom them out nearly as hard. I find myself looking for excuses to type and have completely stopped using my laptop at home because it is so enjoyable. It has a hardware switch for control and capslock, having capslock act as control is awesome. Much more comfortable for keyboard shortcuts and keybinds in vidya. The same goes for the function keys, I find them much more comfortable to reach than on a standard layout. The only downside is that I make less errors on my laptops membrane keyboard but I still average roughly the same wpm. The key caps feel really nice, I've never owned such good quality ones before.

Anyway I highly recommend this board for anyone who plays games that require a lot of keybinds or wants to try blues.

anyone with HKKB that have a few keys ever so slightly tilted? like by 0.1 degree. the Amazon preview pic shows this (if you look at the E and U key). is it that way due to the switch or the keycaps being slightly misaligned? it's only noticeable on blank keycaps because there's nothing else to look at.

i don't think there's any difference in build quality. I think it's the PBT keycaps that vary in quality control control between different HHKBs. they're harder to manufacture and have poor yield.

I would like to read some anecdotes from /mkg/ regarding their experiences with 122 key keyboards.

I have become tired of constantly having to use shortcuts while working and browsing. I'm hitting the shortcuts for copy, past, cut, undo, redo, find, close, maximize, and switch windows hundreds of times a day. It's exhausting. I have actually begun to wear out the left ctrl key switch on my AT101W.
I have thought about getting a keyboard with some function keys to the side and mapping those keys to perform these actions.

I am not really such a fan of buckling springs keyboards, so I don't think I'd go with one of the big Model M or F terminal keyboards. Any other suggestions, possibly with black Alps key switches?

I've learned from buying these things that I can't fucking stand it when the letter and symbol keys are blank, but I prefer the modifier/special keys (like escape) blank or pimped, and I don't really care for either laser or printed on keys, but from the side of the key, it looks okay.

I really want an 80% profile keyboard instead of 60%, I really can't stand these anymore because I use the function keys and arrow keys all the time when navigating/playing games.

I guess 60% is good for programmers, but they suck for just about everything else.
