Black Friday is mostly a scam, as with all planned sale events. They jack up the "baseline" prices so they can cut them down again and make you think you're getting a deal, but really, they're still charging an amount that makes them a giant profit overall.

Asked on the other thread but didn't get any replies: is there any switch that feels clicky to type on but isn't as loud as blues? Should I try o-rings? Want something that doesn't bother other people with noise and is as quiet as possible, but that still feels good to type on.

Make sure it is dried properly before working it. Electronic parts are not very flexible. And if you can, use the side closer to the core for any routering. so it doesn't squish the insides when drying.

They always do it a few weeks earlier (like before Halloween when they're planning Black Friday) so by the time the sale happens you've forgotten what the old prices were. And they don't double them or anything, they just raise them by a bit more than whatever the discount is going to be.

The one in the drop is manufactured with injection molded switch stems/housings. You are not gonna recreate those without going through the same grief to deal with a manufacturer.

If you just hate Massdrop and don't want to buy it from them, then wait a year or so for the eleven rebranded versions from the same manufacturer that you'll be able to buy on Aliexpress.

The usual complaint with Kailhs is inconsistent quality. Any two switches on the same board, from the same batch, are liable to sound/feel completely different. They don't seem to give a shit about QC in general, and neither do the manufacturers that use them. A lot of Kailh boards in the past have had dud switches. Maybe this part has improved, though.

Get the one you like the most and/or is the cheapest with the switches you want. Apart from the looks and backlight, they're both good.

As for your battlestation, I'd try better routing the cables, as well as adding some more interesting things that aren't just black or white to bring some more color to it. Hang posters on the walls if you have space and display some toys or figures if you're into it. Black and white isn't a bad color scheme, but when pretty much everything on your desk is black and just the walls and monitor are white, with some random LEDs on the keyboard and mouse, it looks a bit messy. You have a black desk, so try to put some white stuff over it to match the wall and not get lost.

So, I got my Lolita Spyder finally.

As a mechanical keyboard newbie I am amazed at the feel of these keys (I can only imagine how quality switches might feel). I got Kailh Reds. Very smooth and great tactile feedback, even without the actuation click.

The keyboard is heavy as fuck (at least compared to my former keyboard which was a rubberdome).

Obviously I'll have to adjust the keyboard to my language because this is in EN. While I can't get other keycaps, I'll just use some stickers.

What worries me is the backlight. I either don't know how to turn it on or I've been chinked as fuck.
Anyone have any idea how this works? I've searched online but I can't get an answer. I've tried FN with arrow keys, FN with Function keys... I can get blinks using F10, F11 and F12, but I don't know what function it's performing.

You know you can contact cherry, kailh, gateron, etc. and have them make you a switch with your color using their tooling. Thats exactly what razer did and their green switches are actually just kailh blue. On the older razer keyboards they used cherry mx switches.

You guys seem to purchase custom color and symbol keys for your mechanical keyboards, are there any available that have not just English, but also Cyrillic characters on all the keys?

well if you are buying from wasdkeyboards, you get to customize the keycaps as much as you want, so you can just put cyrillic letters on them

however, they aren't very nice keycaps as they're just thin ABS plastic, and their printing wears off after a while. most people are advised not to get them unless they really need that customization

the enjoypbt set would be a lot better in quality, especially since 50 burgerbucks for the abovementioned wasdkeyboard caps isn't considered worth it to most people

as far as buying from china, enjoypbt is a chinese company so buying from aliexpress would indeed be legit

there is a group buy going on called XDA milestone and it has an option for cyrillic caps. it's priced pretty standard as far as keycaps go and international is a flat rate of $20 (i'm assuming you are not in the us). but since it is a group buy it'lll take a while for you to actually get them

if even wasdkeyboards is too expensive, well, scouring aliexpress for something cheap is another solution

I suggest you read the FAQ linked in the OP. You see corsair has an issue with LEDs dying. Ducky fixed their LED issue by having two separate PCBs (one for the switches and one for the LEDs). Corsair also uses an non standard layout so getting replacement keycaps will be troublesome if you do. Also I don't really like the gaymer aesthetic.

>https://www.pccasegear.com/products/36919/logitech-g610-orion-backlit-mech-keyboard-cherry-red

This keyboard is waaaaay too overpriced. In the US it sells for under 80 bucks and is considered a mediocre budget board. It uses thin laser etched ABS keycaps that will wear out with a month of heavy use. Also the non standard stabilizer placement and non standard bottom row will make finding replacement keycaps even more of a pain then corsair. Honestly I wouldn't recommend it since for even cheaper you can get keyboards with back lights, programmable macros, nkro over USB, and double shot keycaps (pic related is what they are).

Honestly the CM and Ducky keyboards are your best options

There really is no need to get a mechanical keyboard, unless you want something that feels different. Rubberdomes are tactile and have an actuation force of around 65g. Some people want lighter switches like gateron clears that actuate at 35g, while some people like heavy switches like hall effect which can actuate at 300g. Some people don't like the tactile feedback while others want a loud and clicky switch. Its mostly a matter of preference and durability. You see eventually rubber domes will get mushy after extended use while mechanical keyboard don't. Some people just want to buy one keyboard and have it feel brand new for years to come. Membrane keyboards are fine and I'd only recommend a mechanical keyboard if you want to type on something that is more comfortable for you

Okay so you're pretty much me. I went into bestbuy and played a black widow and loved it to death. So after a lot of research I'm glad I didn't buy one. In fact you can buy the same type of switches for $40 on Amazon. The Razer green switches on the black widow apparently didn't hold up after a few weeks to a month.

Could I get some feedback on my 45% design? I plan on buying the space bar 3d printed as its the smallest I could find you can buy (5.5u). Cheers.

Why not buy a 5u spacebar from XDA or PMK?

I thought the smallest you could buy was 6u? PMK doesnt have anything less then 6? Do you think it would be better if i did 2x 2.75u?

How small of a spacebar do you need? Keyclack has 2u, 2.25u, 2.75u, 3u
