I'd rather have fn + number row to be the function row and allocate the space at the bottom for other stuff. I like the idea of having a smaller spacebar like JIS though, I personally only ever press it on the left side

>> No.57520881

That's disgusting and useless

>> No.57520904

The problem with JIS or the Minila layout is the spacebar still being centered, if you're gonna shrink the spacebar it should be offset to the left, ideally with the centre of it directly underneath F.

>> No.57520963

exactly. i'm thinking about making a custom layout with an offset spacebar like that and other oddities but i'm torn
having nice keycaps would be a pita

it's kind of funny how we tell newcomers "DON'T get the corsair, it's got a nonstandard layout and you won't be able to find keycaps!!!!!" and then we go and get alps boards and funny layouts that require child sets

Is there somewhere you guys like that sells cherry mx keycaps in various languages? I'm specifically looking for the Polish Programmer layout (which is QWERTY, as opposed to the more common Polish 204 layout, which is a QWERTZ).

I can find Japanese or Russian, but never Polish Pro... guess it's kind of an obscure one, but my native language is English so the Y/Z weirdness is too odd for me.

Maybe even somewhere that'd let me customize a key? I legitimately can't find anything other than those stickers for keys that kinda suck anyway.

Just curious, seemed a solid place to ask.

>> No.57521557

you can get customized keys from WASDkeyboards. most people don't like the caps because of the quality (it's thin ABS, and wears easily), but it's undoubtedly better than stickers. it is probably the best solution for you

They typically aren't, but they certainly can be. The keyboard I'm using at work with mx clears, o-rings and thicc pbt caps is hardly louder than the rubber dome boards others are using.

So after shopping around and researching as best I could, I've decided that assuming Black Friday turns up nothing relevant, this will be the keyboard for me.


Now I understand Kailh switches aren't held in high esteem and that Gaterons are considered the superior cheap Cherry alternatives, with Browns seemingly agreed upon to be even smoother and more tactile than Cherry's own. But I can't for the life of me find a fullsize Gateron Brown board anywhere that comes close to this one in price. In fact, they seem to be more or less in-line with comparable Cherry switch keyboards.

I've been looking for weeks, and my research tells me that such a board doesn't seem to exist, but I'm posting anyway on the off chance that one of you cool cats might be privy to information that has eluded me.

Blues can have hysteresis issues and are louder. Browns are a shitty compromise to fix that issue. Go with blacks or clears.

They're all linear. The bamboo version has 70g springs with about 50g actuation.

That's the hardest version, but according to the guy, it's relatively easy to replace the springs, but that's gonna cost you both time and money.

They promise to be smoother since there are no mechanical contact, But very few people actually have Hall effect keyboards so there's not many impressions.

Alright, what do you /g/uys think about the Cougar 200k? No, I'm not trying to be some 1337 gaymer with the autistic lights, but I do like mech keyboards, and I've heard this one is quiet(er) because of the membrane switch. Halp/suggestions? I won't spend more than 40-50USD for a keyboard...

>> No.57548244

Hey anon I think you are in the wrong place, but if you want a cheap and quiet mechanical keyboard then get an old cash register keyboard like any of the cherry g80 POS ones for 10 bucks then buy some o-rings for a dollar and you now have a cheap and quiet mechanical keyboard.

>> No.57548331

Not gonna make a much of a meme out of it sadly. I just really want the programmability of it. Not even gonna attach any form of custom lighting onto it. Just custom keycaps.

>g80 POS
the big reason why you would get an acrylic case is for the LED lighting. They are cheaper then the aluminum cases, but they don't look as good if you don't put any lighting in them.

aluminum cases are too conductive
acrylic for korean customs ftw
Couldn't you just use SharpKeys if you are on Windows? It's probably enough for you but if not AHK could fill the gap.
I get it if you have to use more than one computer.

I just found a rk61 with cherry mx switches for about that price.
is it possible to get a board with no key caps? Because I'm just gonna end up getting key caps, I like the miami themed ones, pic related.

average price on this meme right here tho?

Thanks anons. Appreciate the advice. Is the pcb good tho?

>aluminum is too conductive
What? It's not like I will kill myself with 5v right? I will also insulate every contact point with the alu chassis

>> No.57548730

No I have another kb for work. The one I'm building will just sit at home. I don't like software solutions to my problem and I just want to do a custom. Fairly experienced with soldering so that won't be an issue

Are you talking about the keycaps with Japanese legends? Those are EnjoyPBT Dyesub and cost $75

>> No.57548791


Yea, same price with imsto.

XDA is not much more depending on layout.

I really don't know what that anon is talking about with conductivity. Now as far as the PCB is concerned, its actually really good for a chink board, though sometimes a resistor is not soldered properly.

What's the cheapest way to test Topre switches these days? I missed the Novatouch boat.

middle mouse button on my mionix naos 7k just broke, are there any other mice as top comfy as it or should i just buy another one?

>> No.57549316

So I bought a used ergodox and the top aluminum plate is not looking so good, can I put it on the bottom of the case? Should I be worried about short circuits happening?

>> No.57549319

Alright thanks. I was actually thinking about getting a clueboard, but I barely even use the insert and delete keys on my 660c that is why I opted to do a custom 60% instead.

Last question. Since zealios are so hard to find, would it be fine to just mod a gateron brown with 67g springs? I have one in stock already so it wouldn't be an issue sourcing those.

>> No.57549346

Aren't clueboards completely programmable? If you don't use ins and del just program them to be literally anything else

>> No.57549406

Yeah I know, but like I said in >>57548152 I really want an alu case. The clueboard drop costs $250 upwards with an alu case. For a little less than $150, I can do the same with a 60%. I just cant justify that huge of a price gap plus the fact that it's way easier to get aftermarket caps on a 60%

I can't get a model F for 5 bucks, i rather just go custom chink switch with good reviews.
