you can buy keyboard kits and assemble the thing your self like pic related.

If you want however you can buy the parts individually like a gh60 PCB and plate, then use whatever cherry style switches you want and build a custom case for the whole thing.

The bottom row is non-standard, and even the placement of the stabilizers is non-standard. E. g. finding replacement keycaps will be a massive pain.

Ducky doesn't have a track record of making shit keyboards. They're known for the opposite.

I've got a Ducky keyboard and a Logitech keyboard. Now from experience I can never go back to ABS keycaps again after having ducky dye-sub PBT for so long. The massive jump in quality was worth the extra 20 bucks compared to the laser etched ABS that the g610 has. Now Ducky also has three layer function mapping with fully programmable macros. I've only got a couple macros set, but your mileage may vary. Personally I don't care for a back light and having dedicated volume keys is enough for me since the media playback is all bounded to my mouse, but if you want a back light then there is this:

Here you go.
Yes, no browns because browns suck. Get any other switch than browns.

Because maybe at some point you'll want to replace your keycaps because the stock ones are either worn out or got shiny and look disgusting. Or just because you feel like it, because modularity is one of the nice things about mechanical keyboards.

Have you actually used browns?

By their description they sound great. Quiet with tactile feedback. In real life, they are a gritty mess with just a minor bump. The solid click a blue has is vastly superior in almost every way.

Besides, sound is less dependant upon switches and more on case, caps, and plate. My greens board is much quieter than my browns.

Get blacks or reds, or clears.

Browns feel like reds with dirt in the middle, that's what wrong with them. "Browns are the best for typing and gaming" is bullshit marketing that people keep spouting because they have no idea what they're talking about.

Browns are a miserable compromise between tactility and low weighting.

Any recommendations for (silver coloured) aluminium keyboards? I don't want to mod cases but I'm fine with buying some aluminium keycaps to put on.

How scratch are we talking here? Do you want to use a pre-soldered PCB or to hand-wire all the switches together? What sort of layout are you looking for, one that's a standard size and lets you use an existing readily available case or one that's a bit different?

These particular switches? Nobody does, except the 5 or 6 people he sent samples to. Read his DT thread for more details.

Hall effect keyboards used to be a thing. Game controllers still use them sometimes for analog buttons, like the triggers on Xbox controllers. If you have no other point of reference, at least there's that.

If you want something where you still have arrow keys + numpad but save some space, Cooler Master has a neat layout where the numpad and arrow keys are combined. It's called the Masterkeys Pro M. But it's not the nicest looking of boards.

The layout in your pic is called a 1800 layout and pretty hard to find outside of old boards or custom. Why not get a tenkeyless?

Guys I just got an office job. Now I have to type a lot, and not for pleasure. The keyboard they gave me is an old Dell keyboard full of some fat bitches mustache hair and ruffles chip crumbs. They told me I can bring my own.

I'm not spending mechanical bux for something a mexican-chinese maid can steal from my desk late at night. Have any of you tried these "mechanical feel" keyboards? Are they worth a shit at all?

Ideally I want a keyboard with nice feel, that is quiet. It doesn't have to be anything special at all, but something with a better typing experience than a K120 would be preferred.

>> No.57519075

why not get one of those cheap chinkshit boards with knockoff switches
it'll still be much better than a rubber dome

>> No.57519096

I don't wnat to get something with cherry knockoff switches because they're loud and i'll be "that stupid fuck who has to annoy us all with his fancy keyboard he brought in"

>$14000 if im not mistaken
wew lad most topres sell for 150-200 bucks with the clones selling at 80-100.

Mechanical boards really aren't all that much louder than a rubber dome. If you get o-rings, matias quiet clicks, or some other dampener then they actually become quieter than a regular dome board.
