hey /mkg/, so I've gotten into mech keyboards this year and now my dad wants one for Christmas. He used to give me shit for spending so much on MKBs but I guess I won him over. here's what he wants:


>Budget
$120ish or under
>Location
US West Coast
>Preferred switch type
"The easiest to press"; I interpret this as MX Reds
>Layout
"I never use the numpad"; TKL or 60ish with arrowkeys
>Backlight
He wants RGB
>Previous/current keyboards
He's never even tried one but there's no goddamn way he'd put in the effort to try one first. We're several state away, but I have a Pok3r RGB w Browns and I just bought the XMIT Hall Effect TKL Bamboo.

they are keycaps though. The materials and the process required to make key caps are equivalent to making lego blocks, they shouldn't cost more than then actual keyboard itself.
But as long as consumers pay the listed price, there aren't reasons to sell them cheaper I guess.

legos are made in massive quantities and don't require the same kind of tools as making keycaps does.

A lego brick of a given shape requires a single injection mold, with no processing after it has been cast. In terms of keycaps, a blank keycap would be equivalent to this.

Realforce feels linear to me. No idea why opinions like >>57705855 are parroted as much as they are.

It's very smooth till it makes that thonk from bottoming out. It's rubber so bottoming out is like on rubber membrane keyboards. The closest switch I could compare it too are Cherry reds.

>> No.57706022

>>57705895
Its hard to explain. But in a normal membrane keyboard when the rubber dome collapses you feel a sudden change in force just before you bottom out. In topres on the other hand you do feel a change in force, but its completely smooth all the way down. The mushiness of rubber domes is gone, but if you have a lighter switch you may not feel the shift and instead compare it more to a cherry red.

Yes that's why I said it's the closest feeling to Topre.

I don't think so. You see the actuation point cannot be felt because of the nature of rubberdomes. There is also almost no resistance once the dome collapses making it really hard to not bottom out

threadly reminder the best keyboard ever made uses rubber dome technology.

>> No.57706303

>>57706214
hold on let me rephrase that. In topres you can feel the tactile feedback at the top when the dome colapses. However the actual actuation of the switch happens due to a 5g spring at the bottom. Since this spring is capacitive you can have varying distances of when the actuation point happens. This means that if you set it low enough you can't feel the actuation point since the dome has already collapsed.

Nope. You can't even press them down. You just touch the keycaps and an internal microphone emits a "thock".

You can sort of feel the dome cave in near the top of the stroke and then you just drop straight down to the bottom. The bottom-out is pretty harsh even with the rubber because there's zero resistance after the dome caves, and is why the thock is so audible.

>>57705987

I was initially interested in Topres, admittedly in no small part because of how hard they're memed and thinking that price=quality, but I actually hated them after trying a Realforce board in a store. The collapsing dome and bottom-out is everything I despise about shitty dome boards and I guess I thought Topres were somehow different but they're not.

They're definitely way smoother and nicer than a typical rubberdome, but they're not for me.

Shouldn't be expensive for tiny PCBs, especially since it'd be ordered in bulk. It doesn't need to be 2mm thick, or have 3oz copper. in the geekhack thread someone suggested flex PCBs, which would be $30 per keyboard (assuming a 1000 pcb order).

I'm in the market for a topre board and I am not totally decided between a TKL realforce and a HHKB.
The interest I had on the HHKB was the location of the ctrl key but I guess I'd feel cripple in the long run

im looking at it too, but you dont lose functions keyts or the other keys you mentioned, you just have to hit function to use them.

im sure you'd get used to it quickly, and theyre all keys used less than the others, for me at least. just placing my hand roughly in the position to hit fn on the hhkb as well as its arrow keys it seems easier than moving my hand to the arrow keys on my current fullsize kb. ymmv

I press function keys pretty often (like f5 to run matlab scripts) so I fear taking the habit of using a fn key for that would be a pain in the neck.
Even more painful is the lack of arrow keys. I took the habit of writing open and close parenthesis/quote/bracket at first and then go in the middle of them with an arrow key and then write the content.(maybe I should try to get them to close automatically as I write the first symbol but I have no such thing in my vimrc yet) Same for the shell / matlab console history : I have the habit to use the up arrow key for that.

And I'm really on the fence about buying blues. They might be too loud. I know I could buy o-rings, but that's an extra cost. Is it that cost worth it for the blues?

Also, I really get fucked with the US layout because if I change to my own layout I have no way of typing the "greater" and "less than" symbols (meme arrows). I still have not found a good solution to this other than just using US and loosing all my language's symbols (which is a no go).

Can I reprogram a single switch to register a different value? If I could, I would turn the left switch into a single key and the remaining key could be used for those two values (exactly as happens on my default layout)

I think most resellers got their stuff from Teraset, which doesn't sell outside of Finland anymore. Anyway, there's this set:
http://www.maxgaming.se/keycaps/ducky/s4-keycap-109-set-white

I kind of want to keep the rest of the keys though, for the FN-layer. Honestly, I'll probably just end up buying a new full size keyboard instead... If I could get a nice Ducky one white/dyesub for somewhat cheap.

You see the problem here is that the sound of bottoming out is louder then the actuating mechanism of the switch. O-rings do indeed make a difference

>> No.57719194

>>57719141
People around you (and myself after a while when I used them) hate the click, not the thud.

Yes bottoming out makes a noise but it's the same for any cherry switch, given you hit them with the same strength

Although one could argue that the point of blue is not bottoming out since the click makes you notice when you can stop

I kinda agree, but as long as people help newcomers choose their keyboards, I don't judge them. There's nothing worse than a closed off, elitist circle jerk.

If you just want a keyboard, you and I are on the same boat. Figure out what your preffered switch is and buy a cheap mechanical. There are no miracles. Go eat something, jerk off, watch some anime.. relax man.

wait what
like, "cherries are bad for typing, check out this $999 switch", or "cherries are bad for typing, stick to membrane"?

>>57721439
Is it seriously this bad? I mean, it weights one kilogram (or so i've seen), it has to have at least some metal inside. Sturdiness is kinda important for me, i have old IBM clone with AT keyboard (so i can't connect it passively to PS/2) and i love how heavyweight it is.

Keycaps are going up in price.

The Fugu artisan originally sold for $25 a pop. Now it is up to $45.

Grab bags were originallu $30, now up to $50. Ghe great thing about the grab bags are that they are literally trash.
